Exactly why this is political news is beyond me, but am I the only one who wonders why Hillary keeps her so close?

John Derbyshire on Election 2008 on National Review Online:

The people calling the shots now, and widely considered to be just the ticket for managing our national affairs, are Community Organizers and Diversity Consultants, people who do not merely retard and constrain productive work, but actually despise it.

Cult of Personality?

I wonder how it will react if Obama fails? What is the democratic version of James Jones?

AFP: Obama camp spies endgame in Oregon: "'We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,' Obama said."

Not so sure about the last part, but Obama is correct about the first two points. My fear is governement sanctions to get people to conserve. I have no doubt that "burdensome" will be understating what will be jackbooting of personal liberty.

That's where the future lies! Throw away that wrench — hit the books!

This cast of thought, utterly dominant among liberals, and by no means unknown among conservatives,"
