How Many Terror Attacks are Needed Before America Wakes Up?


It was a strange coincidence. I was sitting here working on another blot post, Glenn Beck’s Fox show on in the background, being distracted by one of my political text fights with my “progressive” friend Pat Ray, aka “Clergyman P-Ray.”

Ross Douthat: Did The Republicans Blunder On Health Care? – NYTimes.com


Yes, say Jonathan Chait and David Frum, in pre-mortems for the G.O.P.’s efforts to derail the Democratic bill. Chait argues that the Republicans could have sold moderate Democrats on a “vastly more limited” piece of legislation, if they’d been willing to compromise early in the process.

In his “Special Comment” urging “progressive” lawmakers to vote against the Obama/Reid health care plan and “kill the bill” because it does not immediately “destroy” private insurance in America, Keith Olbermann went over the top—even by Meltdown standards.

The December 14 broadcast of PBS’s On Point with Tom Ashbrook is titled “Showdown in Copenhagen,” which would lead one to believe that opposing parties there are facing off against one another over the role humans have in affecting the global climate.
