It's odd how little we've heard lately from the skeptics who deny that climate change is real. What's the matter, people? Heat stroke?
David Brooks on books v the internet. As if it's either-or. But then again it's David Brooks.
Politico's Arena takes on the ludicrous idea of Sarah Palin replacing Michael Steele. Examples:
Yes. Please. Immediately.
What a great idea; yes, the solution to the Steele problem (Obama started the Afghanistan war, etc.) definitely is to replace him with someone with a similarly light grasp of facts, history, and policy substance.
As a Democrat, my answer is simple. Please, God, YES!!!!
Not so fast, says the Washington Examiner.
Despite the campaign style of the video Palin recently released, she has over and over again demonstrated that her greatest strength to American conservatism is not in running for office but in getting liberals and Democrats to react to her comments.
You see, when everyone says she's a lightweight, and when Americans think the former half-term Governor isn't qualified or competent or experienced, she wins because conservatives still love her. And what conservatives think is all that matters.
Democrats launched a new website on Friday highlighting "BP Republicans" meant to highlight different GOP lawmakers' defenses of the oil company.
Has a familiar ring to it, somehow.
President Obama got serious this week about the ticking time bomb in his new health-care legislation -- the lack of any clear plan to reduce costs and improve quality. What he did was install someone who can use our behemoth Medicare and Medicaid programs as laboratories for change -- so that reform doesn't bankrupt the country.
The Villagers approve. Oh, goody.
What is odd is to have a president so convinced of his own magnificence -- yet not of his own country's.
Shorter Krauthammer: I despise Obama, and I hate it that he doesn't despise himself as much as I do.
But the problem with political waves is that they generate misleading momentum and exaggerated ideological confidence. Parties tend to interpret shapeless public discontent as the endorsement of their fondest ambitions. Obama mistook his election as a mandate for the pent-up liberalism of his party. Some Republican activists are intent on a similar but worse mistake.
Obama is a centrist, but carry on.
