Required reading: Keith Hennessey has a lengthy-yet-readable, point-by-point takedown of Barack Obama’s August 11 healthcare townhall in New Hampshire (PDF link).

It seems that, a couple weeks back, Jude Noble elaborated on a point she tried to make in the comments section of this post.  Even with a larger word count, it’s no less insipid.

Gallup finds that conservatives outnumber liberals in all 50 states.  Presumably, women & minorities hardest hit.

Here’s Herman Cain, sticking up for tea partiers (hat tip to Ann Coulter).  He too had a great speech at the YAF conference.

A word of warning, should you ever feel the temptation to compliment a liberal (as I did when Alonzo Fyfe took the high road after George Tiller’s murder): you should never mistake a temporary moment of conscience as evidence that he’s cleaned up for good.  Case in point: the Atheist “Ethicist” has fallen off the wagon and joined in the efforts to demonize the townhall protesters.  Stay classy, demagogue.

Of course, that’s not to say there are no pinheads among the protesters.  As somebody who puts principle over posturing, I’m perfectly capable of recognizing and condemning wrongdoing committed by those on my side of the political spectrum.  But can the Left say the same?  I know, I know.  Rhetorical question.

Jonah Goldberg offers a simple yet effective analogy illustrating the folly of ObamaCare.  Why can’t the GOP?

Here’s the latest on federal funding for abortion in ObamaCare.

Good to know: how to get a million hits on your blog in less than a year.

The plot thickens on America Online’s firing of a writer who tried covering Playboy’s disgusting piece about “hate sex” with conservative women.

More race-baiting from Sonia Sotomayor.

Steven Crowder and Pajamas TV put together a funny Olbermann parody, though not as good as this one.

Conservative bloggers hold one of their colleagues accountable for publicizing the identity of an anonymous opponent.

Oh, sure…we’re laughing now at this parody

Dr. Francis Collins has an excellent new website dedicated to showing how science and faith can coexist: the BioLogos Foundation.

Ol’ Broad’s got a great roundup of political cartoons.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy is in hot water over bringing a global warming skeptic into his government.

Michelle Malkin calls attention to a disturbing case in which the Obama Justice Department has dismissed an uncontested lawsuit against a group of Black Panther thugs who intimidated Philadelphia voters during the 2008 election.

28-year-old Democrat living in Mom’s basement refuses to clean his room.  Film at eleven.

Audio: Mark Levin vs. David Frum on Frum’s hypocrisy, Levin’s civility, Rush Limbaugh, and the future of the GOP.  Despite his reputation for bombast, Levin comes across as remarkably patient and restrained in dealing with this whiny, filibustering hypocrite.

Anybody else getting tired of Bill O’Reilly’s crusade about what he arbitrarily deems “mean-spirited,” “partisan,” “personal,” or “name-calling”?

Robo-bama:  creepy.

Ross Douthat recently wrote an interesting column about “Dan Brown’s America.”

Yes, thanks to the ol’ college grindstone, blogging has been, and will probably continue to be, a little on the light side. But I’ll still try to update every now and then.
It would appear Barack Obama has executive experience after all—an 8-year stint as director of the Joyce Foundation. David Hardy dissects the organization’s attacks on the Second Amendment during Obama’s tenure.

The vile Alan Colmes (who received
a well-deserved berating at the hands of Dick Morris the other night) has stumbled across the story of Greg Howard, a Florida middle-school teacher who told his students that Obama’s “Change” tagline was an acronym for “Can you Help a N***** Get Elected.” Howard has betrayed the public trust, is unfit to educate the community’s children, and should be fired. Period. Not that the Left will recognize intellectual consistency, or abandon their double-standards on public-school propagandists.

More evidence that Michelle Obama is going to be just a terrific First Lady.

Peggy Noonan
isn’t sure who she’s voting for. Sorry, Peggy. We’ll have to ask you to turn in your Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy ™ membership card and decoder ring.

The UW Madison Marching Band “
has been suspended while allegations of hazing, alcohol abuse and sexual misconduct are investigated.” I did competitive marching band in high school, and almost went to Madison. While I miss marching, I’m gladder than ever that I chose Hillsdale instead.

Guess the Obamas
knew Bill Ayers a little better than they claimed (just don’t tell anyone about it. What are you, a racist?).
