David Boaz has noticed a pattern… one we’ve mentioned here before. Some people on the left can’t see any excuse for opposition to collectivism except racism. (Which is, of course, as Ayn Rand said, “the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism.”) Today it’s Paul Krugman: But they’re probably reacting less to what Mr. Obama […]

Frankly I think there are few people on the sphere who bring greater gravitas to the entire matter about the Gates /Crowley affair than Sister Toldjah. Yesterday morning’s post on that point reinforces that perception. — President Obama expressed “regret” yesterday – but did not apologize – for the choice of words he initially used […]

As those who can remember back to the 2006 elections realize, the political winds have been favoring the democrats of late. If you take all the ‘generic congressional polls‘ from April of 2005 through today, you get the democrats at 48.9% and the republicans at 37.9%.

So, Obama is going to try to diffuse the race issue he has so far benefitted from. How? By giving a  speech. The trouble with that idea, of course, is that the speech comes almost directly on the heels of everything else that has gone on in his political career… It will be entertaining, I […]
