Sorry, there’s a lot of good stuff on the tubes:
The WSJ on empathy. The reason we have laws and a Constitution is precisely so that people don’t make decisions based on emotion — which is an unreliable guide at best.
Obama and the Democrats are contemplating an outrageous expansion of federal discretionary power. Kudo to Greenwald for not selling out to the Hope and Change Express.
Why does Bill Kristol still get media appearances? He’s a disgrace. He’s just wrong about everything. If a blogger were as wildly ignorant as Kristol is, his traffic would crater.
Sweeeet. Taxpayers are auditing school districts — and finding millions in waste. That’s change we can believe in.
Isn’t this sort of thing how we got an economic crisis in the first place?
Lithwick defends Clarence Thomas. The meme in liberal circles that Thomas is an idiot puppet of Scalia is one of the most ignorant — and quietly racist — of the movement. The thinking seems to be that since he’s black and not liberal, he must be a moron.
The reality of child soldiers.
