FRED BARNES, CO-HOST: Welcome back to The Beltway Boys.
Let's see if Mort can handle this week's Tip Sheet.
Item number one, President Bush is going to the G-8 meeting in Canada next week. Where in Canada?
MORT KONDRACKE, CO-HOST: Alberta, far away, where protesters can't camp out, or will have to camp out, they'll have to sleep in sleeping bags. And the Indians, the local Indian — Native — I guess Native Americans, Native Canadians, whatever the term is, won't let them sleep in the — on the reservation.
BARNES: Well, so what's the issue here?
BARNES: All right. Number two, FBI Director Robert Mueller addresses the annual convention of the American Muslim Council.
KONDRACKE: Well, what I'd like to see Mueller say is, Look, you're Americans, we need your help to find bad buys in your midst. And, and quit defending terrorism. But I doubt he will.
BARNES: Yes, yes, no, he'll say, Oh, we're not anti-Islam, you know.
Item three, three Alabama runoffs take place on Tuesday, but look for the seventh district race to be the nastiest, with incumbent Democratic Congressman Earl Hilliard in a political fight for his life against attorney Arthur Davis.
KONDRACKE: Well, Hilliard has been alleging that Davis is, guess what, taking money from Jews, and, you know, and that's a major campaign...
KONDRACKE: ... issue.
KONDRACKE: Hilliard is not a good guy...
KONDRACKE: ... and he's been, you know, he's stoutly anti-Israel.
BARNES: Yes, you know what? He's going to win.
BARNES: Item number four, June 25 is the South Carolina GOP gubernatorial runoff. Former congressman Mark Sanford is taking on Lieutenant Governor Bob Peeler.
KONDRACKE: Well, Peeler has been taking out what are deemed negative ads against Sanford, and Carroll (ph) Campbell, the granddaddy of South Carolina Republicans...
KONDRACKE: ... is in there campaigning on Sanford's behalf...
KONDRACKE: Yes, right.
KONDRACKE: ... and so is Lindsey Graham.
BARNES: Yes, I'm for Sanford. He honored his term limits pledge in Congress.
And item number five, presidential prospects Al Gore and North Carolina Senator John Edwards will hold separate retreats next weekend.
KONDRACKE: Well, somebody should do what the FBI does always at Mafia funerals, you know, take down license plates to see which former Gore aides are showing up at the Edwards retreat.
BARNES: You know what? A lot of them.
KONDRACKE: All right.
