*Thomas Friedman, like most New York/Washington D.C. libs, believes that “the far right” is dangerous. This from the man who frequently writes op-eds about how wonderful the one party autocracy in China is, and how every problem in America could be fixed if we had a benevolent dictator for a day. But we’re the dangerous ones. Unbelievable.
*Crimes Against the Party, by Doctor Zero.
*The Manchurian President, by Stephen Green.
“It’s a little early in his administration to draw any broad conclusions, but the evidence is clear: As a younger man, Barack Obama was kidnapped and brainwashed by evil Republican operatives, then sent deep undercover to destroy the Democratic Party and perhaps even the entire liberal worldview.”
*Roman Polanski in his own words:
“If I had killed somebody, it wouldn’t have had so much appeal to the press, you see? But… f—ing, you see, and the young girls. Judges want to f— young girls. Juries want to f— young girls. Everyone wants to f— young girls!”
Jail might be too good for this fucker. I bet his homeboys on cell block C won’t share his worldview, but they may help him empathize with his victim with a little role-playing.
*A Pragmatic Look at Obama’s Pragmatism, by Jonah Goldberg.
*The Metamorphosis, by David Kahane. I don’t want to excerpt this piece, it’s too important and too good. Read it, and thank me later.
*I don’t agree with Dan Riehls piece on Glen Beck, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading the smack down Beck fans gave him in the comment section. Enjoy.
*October 1st means Hockey! GO AVALANCHE!!! And let’s all welcome our new team captain, Adam Foote.
*O Ye of Little Memory, by Victor Davis Hanson.
ALSO by Hanson: Some Signs of the Times.
ALSO II: Three Dangerous Stooges.
*Lament for a Nation, by David Warren. This article makes comparisons between Gorbachev and Obama.
“Yet they do have one major thing in common, and that is the belief that, regardless of what the ruler does, the polity he rules must necessarily continue. This is perhaps the most essential, if seldom acknowledged, insight of the post-modern “liberal” mind: that if you take the pillars away, the roof will continue to hover in the air.”

*How Politics Destroyed a Great TV Show, by Jonah Goldberg.
*Obama, Dictators, and democrats, by Daniel Henninger.
*At What Cost to Freedom: The Individual Mandate is a Bad Idea, by Robert Moffit.
“Requiring everyone to buy government-specified health insurance, whether they need it or not, is an unacceptable violation of personal liberty. It is a way of taxing healthy people without calling it a tax. Since that is an irresistible temptation to politicians, the list of required benefits would be certain to keep expanding.
The choice between freedom and responsibility, as the president and his congressional allies portray it, is a false choice. We can and should have both.”
