Today is National Punctuation Day. If you're one of the few people who can manage to write a properly punctuated sentence (let alone have it be grammatical and spelled correctly), thank your English teacher.

Somewhere between shopping for Jimmy Choos, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was interviewed by Fortune magazine, and offered the opinion that if we abandon Afghanistan, we'll be attacked again.

Lord knows, she certainly had her eye on the ball in 2001 as National Security Advisor. Couldn't be arsed to meet with Richard Clarke, who wanted to discuss the threat of al-Qaeda. Dismissed the August PDB as a 'historical' document. Parroted the line that 'we didn't know' terrorists would use planes as missiles to attack us. Or, that as an expert on Russia, thinks that sticking it out in Afghanistan is going to end any differently than it did for Great Britain or Russia.

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), the genius who brought us a House resolution on the importance of Christmas and Christianity, says gay marriage is a purely socialist construct.

Because it puts all the married stuff in a big pool and splits it up ... no, wait, that's communism. Okay, so all the gay stuff is run by the government ... no, no, that's still not right.

Federal authorities have now formally charged Najibullah Zazi with being involved in a terrorist plot.

Remember, a couple of weeks ago, we were being told there was no credible evidence of a terrorist threat. This week, it's all OMGZ! THERE ARE TERRORISTS OUT THERE! BE AFRAID!

No, really?

I've no doubt there are people in this world that wish ill upon America. Our prosperity and freedom guarantee that. So let's get sensible policies in place and stop this ass-hatted chicken dance every time we uncover some Islamic loon with aspirations to being the next Khalid Sheik Mohammed or Osama bin Laden.
