Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
How is that Hopey Changey thing working, Glenn Reynolds, Iinstapundit [1]:

“Despite all the talk of green jobs, the overwhelming majority of stimulus money spent on wind power has gone to foreign companies, according to a new report by the Investigative Reporting Workshop at the American University’s School of Communication in Washington, D.C. . . . Even with the infusion of so much stimulus money, a recent report by American Wind Energy Association showed a drop in U.S. wind manufacturing jobs last year.”

I suppose George Soros has to recoup this investment in the one somehow.

Begrudging, Glenn Reynolds gets over half a million visits a day [2], but I don’t begrudge him.   Should this be news?

Post-Racial in the Big Easy, Abigail Thernstrom, National Review [3] :

An ‘Earth-Shaking’ Election in New Orleans

Louisiana Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu is the next mayor of New Orleans. The city is two-thirds black, and he will be the first white elected to the office since 1970, when his father, Moon Landrieu, won the seat.

The election was a true post-racial moment. Four and a half years after Katrina, black voters decided competence trumped race. The prospect of a white mayor would be “an earth-shaking event,” a politically active black lawyer told a New York Times reporter before the election

Not what the MSM meant.

Mrs. Pelosi, a Karl Rove plant,  Jennifer Rubin, Commentary [4]:

“Nancy Pelosi resists President Obama’s outreach efforts.” She is so perfectly tone-deaf, so utterly opposed to compromise, and so unfazed by the political peril that dozens of her members face, that one sometimes suspects another devious Karl Rove plot is in the works. (Maybe Pelosi could oppose all tax cuts! Then she could reject even the baby-step spending freeze!)

That’s enough.
