Evaluation, for the novice

When it comes to evaluating changes to presidential power, think of the opposition party president you've disliked the most in your life and ask yourself. "If he had had this power, would it have disturbed, worried, or angered me?

When it comes to evaluating intent around a piece of legislation, it's wise to ask yourself, "Does this have a named sponsor? Is it a piece of legislation laid out in the full light of day, or has someone made a clear effort to hide it from view?"

When it comes to evaluating Republicans, you can't go wrong in assuming that something like this is a blatant attempt to whip up a little Southern Pride and corral a few more rightwing votes in November.

When it comes to evaluating the MSM, try reading this, because Engelhardt is always worth listening to. Interesting and entertaining.
