Hillary: The Audacity of Hypocrisy

Ben Smith points out that for all Hillary's petulant and politically motivated whining about Precondition-Gate (Obama's "hopeocrisy"), in the words of three-year-olds everywhere, SHE STARTED IT.

Tom Segev: Scandal in the Third Grade

I don't get why they can't just use the SAME textbook (translated, of course) for both the Hebrew and Arabic versions. Isn't that, er, the essence of objectivity (the veil of ignorance and all that jazz)?

The Right Wing's New Darling: Hillary Clinton

Story gives a nice run-down of gushing winger quotes about Hillary's cleavage... oops, I mean, her foreign policy cold-cock of Barack Obama at last Monday's youtube debate...

News Bulletin For Stanley Crouch - Lincoln Was A Non-Believer

I've never much cared for Stanley Crouch, and this this is pretty much exactly why:

From the abolition movement through the brilliance of Abraham Lincoln's presidency and the brave leadership of the civil-rights movement, we have seen how well our country has been influenced for the better by people of faith.

Ignore the mind-numbing cliche "people of faith," ignore the fact that 60% of pro-slavery pamphlets were penned by clergymen... but Abraham Lincoln a believer? This is painful to read even for us rank amateur students of American history.

Liberals' Misplaced Love of John Rawls

Or is it John Rawls's misplaced love of liberalism? Or is it Hillary's misplaced love of modern progressivism?

So implausible that it just might work!

Just Go Away, John Yoo

One day he will show up on youtube being tarred and feathered by a Berkeley mob... or is that another lost art of the 1960s?

Sarkozy's Historical Blind Spot

It's one of the first peeps of serious criticism I've heard about Sarkozy since his triumph at the polls, and it's a trenchant one. (Yet there are surely much grislier hunks of red meat he could be throwing to the ravenous followers of Le Pen.)

Eco-Kosher Movement Gains Momentum

The Green virus infects the 5000-year-old world of Jewish ritual... ("notoriously drafty churches" indeed -- that's a liberal media slam against religion, right?)

Chabad of Cancun?

Silicon Valley venture capitalists have nothing on these guys in terms of identifying and filling a niche.
