Questions for Dumbo, here just one from Victor Davis Hanson, Pajamas Media: We are to believe that future additional drilling in the U.S. will not help lower world oil or gas prices, but calling on the Middle East to pump more, or praising Brazil’s proposed commitment to offshore exploration, will?

Dumbo on Guns, Barrack Obama, Arizona Daily Star: It’s been more than two months since the tragedy in Tucson stunned the nation.

Madison on the Nile, question that is the difference between the thugs who protested in the streets of Cairo and the thugs protesting in Madison?  The thugs in Egypt at least pretended to support democracy.

Newt boots it, or why Newt Gingrich should never again run for public office. Gingrich is the political version of Glenn Beck, a better than average mind sabotaged by the chronic problem talking before thinking.  Gingrich’s latest Beck moment, from David Brody, CBN News: President Obama has had an amazing career.

Sarah’s Clan of the Momma Grizzlies, by  Meghan Daum, Los Angeles Times: After struggling with its definition and connotations, Sarah Palin has apparently made peace with the “F-word.” She freely used it in a May 14 speech for the Susan B.
