  • Dear MSM: Andrew Breitbart was not a Blogger
    • "A blogger is an independent observer, a citizen journalist."

      Uh, no. Not necessarily. That type of blogging is just a fraction of what's out there. What you should have said is, "An independent observer, a citizen journalist, may express him- or herself through blogging."

      I've been blogging for years, and it only very rarely has anything to do with politics. I'm a writer. Thousands of writers and authors are also bloggers. Forgive me for being picky, but I'm tired of "blogger" being hijacked by political writers.

  • Torpey: Support the Libyans but Don't Arm Them!
    • Possibly OT, but every time I hear the Libyan revolutionaries described as a "rag-tag army," I have two thoughts:

      1) They didn't take up weapons until Gaddafi started shooting them. Most of these people are ordinary citizens, who in that regard remind me mightily of the...

      2) "Rag-tag" Continental Army under George Washington, which never would have won without the intervention of the French!

  • An Open Letter to the Left on Libya
    • Thank you. My only fear is that the Left will succeed in stopping what's been begun.

      I can't bear to visit any of the sites in my formerly beloved lefty blogosphere for all the foaming at the mouth. The conflation of Libya with Iraq, etc. is nearly universal. Michael Moore in particular has completely lost his mind. I keep thinking of how France helped the American colonies in their war for independence, and also the Spanish Civil War you reference. Here we have a chance to be the "good guys," and they'd have us walk away in shame and cowardice.

  • Top Ten Accomplishments of the UN No-Fly Zone
    • There's a lot of that "willfully blind" stuff going around, Professor. Kudos to you for telling the truth. I'm 65 years old, and this is the first time in my life I've supported military intervention.

      These people are the future. We need to help.

  • Cleopatra: A Power to be Reckoned With
  • Shimkus Pwned on 2 Percent Climate Claims
    • You know, I went to Sunday school too, and Shimkus is full of it: what I remember is that the "promise" was not to unleash another world-destroying FLOOD. And where does this come from? "Won't be water, but fire next time." Which we seem to be well on the way to experiencing...

  • Obama fails to Galvanize the Youth on Daily Show
    • At least he will be there to veto the crazy tea party legislative agenda.

      Going wildly optimistic on us, Dr. Cole? :-) He hasn't directly vetoed anything yet that I can recall. Personally, I wouldn't count on the above one bit, though I hope you're right.

  • The Big Mistake in the New BP Ad
    • That dying bird? An "Obamabird," because he opted for news management instead of bringing the full resources of the federal government to bear.
