Courtesy of Greg Mankiw comes this bit of news from Sen. Barack Obamas campaign: Obama is confident that we can come together to find a workable solution. He believes that one strong option to improve Social Security's long-term solvency is asking people who earn more than $250,000 to pay a little more into the system. […]

Spreading the wealth

I had last night's debate playing on my computer screen while I was destroying cars on my Xbox 360 playing "Burnout: Paradise City." Word is that Sen. Barack Obama has purchased ads in a variety of video games, and I'm kinda hoping that I get to destroy some Obama-themed cars. The winner in last night's […]

Murtha's mouth

Congressman Jack Murtha, last seen funneling tax dollars to his supporters and slandering Marines, has now revealed that Obama may have a tough time winning Pennsylvania -- because Murtha's constituents are racist. "There's no question Western Pennsylvania is a racist area," said Mr. Murtha, whose district stretches from Johnstown to Washington County. "The older population […]

Obama's Abortion Extremism

Robert George has an excellent article on Obama that reinforces the fact that Obama isn't just "pro-choice," he's "pro-abortion." According to the standard argument for the distinction between these labels, nobody is pro-abortion. Everybody would prefer a world without abortions. After all, what woman would deliberately get pregnant just to have an abortion? But given […]

Today's sign of the apocalypse

Paul Krugman has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Economics. The consensus appears to be that he deserves it for his pre-punditry work. I had a discussion with National Review's Ramesh Ponnuru a few years back when he was visiting San Diego as the starting point for one of the magazine's cruises. One of the […]

Quick hits

I'm still not quite up to full speed, but I am recovering from the wicked cold that has laid me low these past few days. Here's some browser tabs that I've had open for awhile and meaning to blog about. "Our Generals Almost Cost Us Iraq" by Mackubin Thomas Owens points out that the generals […]

Fact check fraud

Courtesy of Best of the Web today comes further proof that the media's fact-checking isn't about determining the truth. During Tuesday's debate, John McCain repeated an assertion he had made before: In Lebanon, I stood up to President Reagan, my hero, and said, if we send Marines in there, how can we possibly beneficially affect […]

Point and laugh

I'm still feeling miserable, but here's today's evidence that the MSM doesn't know squat -- and is apparently proud of it. How did Newsweek convince Gov. Sarah Palin to pose with a rifle for its cover? Simple. It didn't. Instead, it used an archive (fancy speak for old) stock photo of her taken back in […]
