Green vs. green

Want to see a really good case of cognitive dissonance? Just ask one of those Gaia Movement freaks to read this:

Kelo revisited

Quarter for your thoughts

Kinda scary:

Illustrating once again how many Americans’ knowledge of the Bill of Rights is virtually non-existent, Californians signed a petition to repeal the Third Amendment and allow U.S. troops to commandeer their homes.

The unbelievable footage was captured recently in California by activist prankster Mark Dice, a regular Infowars contributor.

Leaks and leakers

I've been trying to decide what I think in general about government leakers. As a journalist, I'm probably supposed to admire them on principle, since they're in the anti-secret business and that's the core function of my profession. But that doesn't really work for me. In fact, I'd be more inclined to dislike the lot of them as the kind of untrustworthy people I wouldn't want hanging around my own life.

The pro speaks

Guess that silly "Is Sarah Palin experienced enough?" debate is over:

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, who flirted with running for president as an independent, tells Newsmax that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is too inexperienced to serve as vice president.

“Now here she is, after not even having been there for two years, she's now going to be the VP!?” asked the 57-year-old actor and former pro wrestler.

Mr. Nice Guy

It'll probably be a rare day in the next few months when I feel compelled to say something nice about both of the presidential candidates at the same time. But today is one of them. First up, Barack Obama, who went Cosby on us and said some things that needed to be said:

Barack Obama celebrated Father's Day by calling on black fathers, who he said are "missing from too many lives and too many homes," to become active in raising their children.

Attack of the blahs

George Bush: "Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah appeasment."

Democrats: "Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, false political attack."

Is it hopeless to expect that something useful might come of all this, or at least something more responsive than:

Effete to be tied

Any of you know what "effete" really means? I searched Google News for a hint that anybody writing about politics today has a clue:

  •  "As an issue it's nothing, but it shows him as the effete, academic liberal." Nope. That's Charles Krauthammer, for pete's sake, and he seems to think it means aloof and elitist.
