"Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties. Truth was never put to the worse in a free and open encounter..."
~ Milton
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

People Have Opinions

George Will kicks McCain's butt for memory loss, short-sightedness, and overall ignorance.

I almost feel sorry for McCain. He's struggling to win over his own party's base at the same time he's fighting to get votes from disenchanted-with-Republicans independent voters. He sounds schizophrenic at times. On the same day, he was bragging about differing from on global warming and proposing that we open up the country's coasts to oil and gas companies.

He's got a tough row to hoe.

Dana Milbank says he's dancing.

And, whether he likes it or not, Dick Cheney may hereinafter be known as the Torture Czar.

Don't Let the Door Hit You On the Way Out

I'm so glad that opportunities abound for the world to laugh at our president.

(Okay, not all the world. Some of it is busy dying.)

Typical

Just so typical.

Achenbach. Always worth reading.

In my next life, I want to be a public intellectual. I think I could specialize in generalizations.

Did you get your "economic stimulus" check? Did you spend it? Did you enjoy it? I hope so, because we're going to be paying it off for a long, long time.

In the aha! category, we have this story, which answers two questions for me. "No," Clinton supporters are not refusing to support Obama, and "yes," I am seeing a weird increase in wingnut Obama-bashing in the last 24 hours or so. (Because polls show Obama already has a lead over McCain.) And more electoral math!

I May Be Sick

I just don't know how to deal with a story about this kind of brutality. (Warning: Link to story of brutal toddler murder.)

Clearly the man is crazy, and not in the "temporary" insanity kind of way. If passersby are trying to intervene and you push them off to finish--what you're doing--well, that's not someone who just 'snapped' for a second. That's big-time crazy.

Maybe I do believe in the death penalty after all. Because if I think about this for more than two consecutive seconds, I almost feel like I could execute the guy myself.

Well, no. Not almost.
