LANDOVER, Md. — Even the margin of victory reminded the playoff-bound Washington Redskins of Sean Taylor.
“I was on the sideline and guys were talking about the score, and then it hit me — we won by 21,” veteran left tackle Chris Samuels said. “I came in the locker room and I yelled it out, and immediately I just kind of broke down in tears. Because I miss Sean, you know.”
From disarray and heartache to confidence and dominance, the Redskins will enter the playoffs as the hottest team in the NFC after Sunday’s 27-6 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
And with the hottest quarterback. And maybe the hottest running back. And with a defense coming off a game in which it allowed exactly 1 yard rushing.
And, perhaps most importantly, on a mission for the teammate who wore No. 21. It’s been four weeks since the Redskins attended the funeral of their best defensive player, and they haven’t lost since.
“Win for Sean” was as strong Sunday as it was when the four-game winning streak began Dec. 6, reinforced by everything from the fiery speech given by kick returner Rock Cartwright on the field before the game to the white “21” on the front of the black baseball cap worn by coach Joe Gibbs at his postgame news conference.
“Play for the guy who’s on your jersey — the guy who’s not here, who should be here,” Cartwright said he told his teammates. “We know how he played the game. That’s why I think guys came out and played so hard.”
Hail to the Redskins! It’s good to back in the playoffs!

STORY CITY, Iowa (Reuters) – Democrat Hillary Clinton called on Friday for an international probe of Benazir Bhutto’s killing as presidential candidates in both parties sparred over foreign policy six days before Iowa begins a close nominating race.
As the campaign hit high gear, Democrats Barack Obama and John Edwards exchanged fire over their ability to fight special interests and Republican Mitt Romney unveiled ads targeting rivals Mike Huckabee and John McCain, drawing a counterattack from McCain
Shut up, Hillary, let the Pakistanis work it out themselves. Not everyone is as stupid as you think they are..
Boston, MA – Sen. John Kerry issued the following statement today regarding President Bush’s expected veto of H.R. 1585, the fiscal year 2008 National Defense Authorization Act.
“Only George Bush could be for supporting the troops before he was against it,” said Kerry.“We fought against this White House to provide our men and women in uniform a decent pay raise and now three days after Christmas George Bush says he’ll veto it. What a disgrace. This fight has just begun and it won’t end until we do right by those who sacrifice for our country.”

Al Gore is taking a beating in France, where people long resisted the green message and the nuclear industry thrives for home energy.
Bloomberg’s Jorg von Uthmann reports that the Paris bookstores are filled with tomes debunking the Gore message despite him winning the Nobel Peace Prize.
France’s number one Gore debunker is physicist Claude Allegre, a former education minister and a physicist by profession. Uthmann reports that his new book, “Ma Verite Sur la Planete” – My Truth About the Planet” – lays it out.
Gore is called a “crook” presiding over an eco-business that pumps out cash.
Uthmann writes of Allegre who says Gore’s French followers, “the author(Allegre) likens them to religious zealots who, far from saving humanity, are endangering it. Driven by a Judeo-Christian guilt complex, he says, French greens paint worst-case scenarios and attribute little-understood cycles to human misbehavior.”
Allegre dismisses renewable energies alternatives, such as wind or solar power, saying it would take a century for them to become a serious factor in meeting the world’s energy demands.
*Snort* Even the French know that algore is a fraud!
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (CNN — U.S. officials suspect a Taliban leader may be behind the plot to assassinate former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, a senior official said Friday.
The official identified Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud as a leading suspect, saying there’s “good information that leads us to believe he is the guy responsible.”
Earlier Friday, the Pakistani Interior Ministry said it had “intelligence intercepts” indicating Mehsud was behind the opposition leader’s death the day before in Rawalpindi.
“As you all know, Benazir Bhutto had been on the hit list of terrorists ever since she had come to Pakistan,” said the Interior Ministry spokesman, Brig. Javed Iqbal Cheema. “She was on the hit list of al Qaeda.”
Cheema said the Pakistani government intercepted a phone call Friday in which Mehsud “congratulated his people for carrying out this cowardly act.”
Cheema said his government had “irrefutable evidence” that al Qaeda was “systematically targeting our state institutions in order to destabilize the country.”
In the phone intercept that Pakistani officials released Friday, Mehsud is apparently speaking in the Pashto language to another militant, whom he called Maulavi Sahib, or religious leader. The following is from the transcript:
Mehsud: Congratulations to you. Were they ours?
Maulavi Sahib: Yes, it was us.
Mehsud: Who was there?
Maulavi Sahib: Saeed was there, second there was Bilal from Badar and Ikramullah.
Mehsud: All three of them did it?
Maulavi Sahib: Ikramullah and Bilal did it.
Mehsud: Then congratulations.
Maulavi Sahib: Where are you? I want to meet.
Mehsud: I am in Makeen [town in the southern part Waziristan]. Come over. I am at Anwar Shah’s house.
Later in the conversation, Mehsud said, “Fantastic job. Very brave boys, the ones who killed her.”
*Snort* Brave Boys dont resort to terrorism, loser!

The latest edition of the Egyptian magazine Al-Ahram Al-Arabi has confirmed what many in the West have suspected for a long time: that Yasser Arafat personally directed the Black September terrorist organization that claimed responsibility for the 1971 murder of Jordanian Prime Minister Wasfi at-Tal, the 1972 massacre of Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics, and other atrocities.
Yassir Arafat, murderer of Americans, terrorist, HIV infected, pedophile, pictured here with the Clintons,
has long been suspected of involvement in Munich. It has already been established that the HIV infected, pedophile, terrorist murdered two American Diplomats in Khartoum in ’73. It has also been suspected that the Achille Lauro hijackers spoke with Arafat during the takeover.
His pedophilia is proven by the tapes the KGB made of him and procured boys. The urge to molest children doesnt go away, how many of his children victims caught the virus from this AIDS infected, pedophile, murderer of Americans, terrorist, pictured here with the Clintons,
or been scarred for life by this terrorist?
Gusting winds swept away Artorius One after its successful second stage separation.
“We had a perfect, uninterrupted launch sequence, ignition was nominal as were the separation and chute deployment,” said *****, an Artorius Aerospace engineer. “But we didnt count on wind gusts at altitude to be that high.”
The separation was viewed visually as was chute deployment. Thats when a wind gust at about 400 ft took the parachuting re-entry vehicle far to the northwest of the Artorius Space Flight Center near [REDACTED]. At this time its wherabouts are unknown.
Equally disturbing is the missing nosecone. It contains the data recorder that recorded the flight profile.
“There is critical data in the Nosecone, which fell in an opposite direction of the parachute, to the southwest,” said *****, another Artorius Aerospace engineer. When questioned whether either the nosecone or the rocket booster had a GPS tracking system installed, he replied tersely, “Overbudget.”
Artorius Aerospace engineers prepare for launch
Artorius Aerospace reveals existence of Artorius Two
Blast Damage from Artorius One
At this time Artorius Aerospace has no plans to announce Artorius Two’s launch. “In fact, we probably wont announce it until after the completion of the test,” said *****, the Artorius engineer in charge of the telemetry package. “We should have waited for better conditions to launch number one, so we be checking out -two very closely before we launch.
Stayed tuned to Artorius, for news of the missing rocket and nosecone..

Recently, as only Hillary can do, she claimed that she was “deeply involved in the Irish peace process.” Bill has also picked up the theme, citing her “independent” role in resolving the century-old conflict as “experience” with which to justify a White House run.
How odd that Hillary forgot to mention her pivotal role in Ireland just four years ago, when she wrote her $8 million memoir, Living History. There, she told a very different story.
Her first mention of Ireland was in a discussion of Bill’s October 2004 trip:
“The trip highlighted Bill’s milestones in foreign affairs. In addition to his pivotal role in easing the tensions in the Middle East, he was now focusing on the decades Long Troubles in Northern Ireland.” (Emphasis added)
No memories of her own involvement in the Irish “troubles.”
Ireland next appeared in Hillary’s memoirs in 1995, when the Clintons visited Belfast and Dublin. According to Hillary, while Bill met with the “various factions” of Irish politics, Hillary met with women leaders of the peace movement. Rather than discuss the difficulties of the peace process, Hillary focused on a teapot used by the women:“They poured tea from ordinary stainless steel teapots, and when I remarked how well they kept the tea warm, Joyce insisted that I take a pot to remember them by. I used that dented teapot every day in our small family kitchen in the White House…”
Do the Hillaries really think we have forgotten all they have said and done?? Read more of Dick Morris’s column here…
Lest we forget what we will be getting if Hillary is elected…
1. Illegal campaign donations from the Communist Chinese
2.Back Alley Deals with religious groups for vote buying. Just what did the New Square Orthodoxy get from Hillary in exchange for their vote?
3.Do we really need frightening photo ops like this?
Coupled with all the liberals that will make up a Hillary Administration, the Presidential Seal will look like this..
We dont care who you vote for, just dont vote for Hillary!
