Quote of the Day – Solution Edition

From Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.

Personally, I’ll be more impressed if we’re ever warned of a pending doom whose aversion won’t require giving a lot of power to bureaucrats, technocrats, and other hangers-on while being left poorer and more constrained ourselves. Because no matter what the crisis being propounded, the remedy always seems to be the same . . . .

He has a point.

Quote of the Day

Had I just gazed the world through my Twitter feed, I would think Chick-fil-A was on the verge of bankruptcy. . . and also that Ron Paul was president, gay marriage was legal, and President Obama didn’t have a decent chance of losing the election.”

Via instapundit.

For those who don’t get the joke, Chick-fil-A is doing record sales thanks to the response to the torrent of hatred they’ve received from those who regard opposition to their agenda as… hate.

And don’t get me started on Ron Paul supporters. Ugh.

Blogging would be heavier but I’m working on a rather lengthy post which has taken up a lot of my spare time.


Instapundit – The Fix is In

Can’t put it any better than this.

A READER AT A MAJOR NEWSROOM EMAILS: “Off the record, every suspicion you have about MSM being in the tank for O is true. We have a team of 4 people going thru dumpsters in Alaska and 4 in arizona. Not a single one looking into Acorn, Ayers or Freddiemae. Editor refuses to publish anything that would jeopardize election for O, and betting you dollars to donuts same is true at NYT, others. People cheer when CNN or NBC run another Palin-mocking but raising any reasonable inquiry into obama is derided or flat out ignored.

It’s gob smacking the level of scrutiny that Palin is put under. Who doesn’t know that Palin’s daughter’s fiancee called himself a “redneck” on his myspace page, yet I challenge you to find anyone, anyone who knows about what Obama got up to as an Acorn “community organizer”.

Plamegate implodes

Remember how Rove was going to be indited?

Indeed – to quote Instapundit (who gets the hat tip for this one)

Far from being part of an orchestrated plot or a vast White House conspiracy, Plame’s unmasking was simply the handiwork of that Washington, D.C., staple, an insider with a big mouth. The culprit was gossip, not political gunslinging.

Let’s see if we can get this straight:

1. George Bush give speech claiming that Iraq tried to buy uranium from Nigeria (or some such place)

2. Claim arises that this is incorrect, and that the president was told it was incorrect.

3. This claim is traced back to an American diplomat.

4. His source turns out to be his wife, a CIA agent who may have been undercover.

5. Investigation starts as to who outed the CIA agent

6. VP’s Chief of Staff is indicted as the guy who originally spilt the beans, he claims he just confirmed what was already known.

7. Left makes this a big conspiracy, constant reports Rove himself is about to be indicted. He never was.

8. Turns out that said CIA agent’s code name was listed in “Who’s Who”. Oops.

9. Then turns out that some idiot who’s not really in the Bush inner circle and no longer works for the White house blurted out the name accidentally.

10. Media suddenly decides the whole thing is actually too complicated and stops reporting.

That’s my understanding anyway. Wikipedia has an article for the so inclined. Maybe I’ll read it sometime.
