So, I didn’t note it here on this blog, but last month I got a letter to the editor published in the local newspaper. Hazard of public sector unions Bill Bianchi (Letters, April 1) misstated the impact of the Citizens United decision.

Random thoughts on the GOP field

Mitt Romney gave a speech last week defending Romneycare, which was Massachusetts version of Obamacare. Romney’s arguments as to why his statewide healthcare plan was a good idea and Obama’s national healthcare plan is not are nonsensical. Romney’s belief that his healthcare plan worked for the state of Massachusetts is proven false by the facts. […]

Google again fails to uphold motto

UPDATE & BUMPED Google’s motto is famously “Don’t Be Evil”—they’re failing miserably. For the record, I chastised Google—civilly—in a response to this thread, which was promptly flushed down the memory hole.  Nitecruzr—whoever he is—has all the makings of a little thug. UPDATE I've apparently paid for my intervention on Althouse's part. Patterico is reporting that […]

Every Democrat has a little fascist in them

I can’t make this stuff up.

This is why we have elections

Because pollsters certainly can’t be trusted—especially those acting under the auspices of the so-called unbiased media. The latest AP poll has President Obama’s approval rating at 60 percent and 52 percent of people approve of the way he’s handling the economy. Unemployment? 52 percent approve.

Noam stands alone

New York Times columnist Ross Douthat makes an excellent point: Imagine, for a moment, that these were George W. Bush’s policies at work. A quest for regime change in Libya, conducted without even a pro forma request for Congressional approval. A campaign of remote-controlled airstrikes, in which collateral damage is inevitable, carried out inside a […]

Hoystory proposes ‘Do Not Speak’ list for Democrats

The man is stupid. Sen. Charles Schumer is calling for better rail security now that the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound has turned up plans to attack trains in the U.S. “Anyone, even a member of al-Qaida could purchase a train ticket and board an Amtrak train without so much as a question asked,” […]

California’s fiscal crisis solved

I must have missed the big article where the state’s pension mess had been cleaned up and a booming economy had caused tax revenues to skyrocket, but it must have happened if this is any guide. Chances are, the last time you flopped down on one of those lush hotel beds, replete with a pillow-top […]
