Chris Stirewalt at the Washington Examiner says that “Americans may have finally given up on big government,” I’ll believe it when I see it. In November. Of 2012.

On that note, PPP ( a Democratic outfit) has a new poll out showing that “Americans are now pretty evenly divided about whether they would rather have Barack Obama or George W. Bush in the White House. 48% prefer Obama while 46% say they would rather have the old President back,” For those of you in need of translation: DOOM!!! H/t Moe Lane.

Blogger Lori Ziganto takes down feminists and the abortion-on-demand culture in one fell swoop at RedState. No quarter asked nor given on her part.

Victor Davis Hanson has a thoughtful essay on class and America in recession, which he researched thus:

I rode a bike about 100 miles on the roads of rural California, in quite poor areas surrounding towns like Selma, Caruthers, and Laton. Then to taste an antithesis, I spent four days at work at tony Palo Alto. I rode a bike there too, as well as walking through the downtown area in a 10-block swath. Finally, for something in the middle, I have been browsing the shopping centers in Fresno — places like Target, Best Buy, Save Mart, and Home Depot.

Ann Coulter calls out John Paul Stevens, while George Will discusses the history of what counts as “qualification” to be a Supreme Court justice. The answer may surprise you.

Ann brings up a fact that hadn’t yet occurred to me: Stevens’ retirement leaves the court with six Catholics and two Jews. I hope that, wherever he is, this causes Justice Hugo Black (KKK alumnus and “wall of separation” reviver) no small amount of discomfort.



  1. DOOM!!!! Haha, great translation!
