The weather on September 11, 2001 was perfect. Anyone from Washington to New York will tell you this. The Mid-Atlantic lives for the NFC East and perfect fall days — clear, crisp, weightless, with dark blue skies and tinting leaves — and September 11 was one of them.
My friend Reihan Salam, who’s been quite the blogging beast at the Daily Beast lately, has a new post up asking “What if Cheney’s Right?” It’s definitely worth a full read, but here’s an interesting point that not many people have pointed out: After 9/11, Bush was more Cheney than Condi: aggressively unilateral, dismissive of [...]
A letter to the editor in the Jackson Sun (part of the Tennessee Gannett News-Bot 5000) quotes a Vanderbilt University Medical Center doctor on why embryonic stem cell research is a medical dead end: In addition, Tommy Mitchell, M.D., of Vanderbilt University Hospital writes: “In the last few years, researchers have succeeded in producing virtually [...]
Blackfive, my favorite milblog, has some videos to show the difference between support for former president George W. Bush and current president Barack Obama. The difference is astounding.

It’s called Mission Accomplished, and it’s up for you to join the cause right now! It’s [...]
Well, we now have President Barack Obama. I ended up skipping class and watching the entire thing, because I just love pageantry and wanted to hear the speech — how cool were those initial shots towards the Washington and Lincoln monuments, moments after the John’n’Barack Smothers Brothers swearing in, with all the flags waving? A [...]
George Will’s Last Word from this week’s Newsweek gives pretty much the best assessment of President Bush’s potential legacy. Will offers a somewhat chilling look at the future of the Republican Party based on its recent past, echoing what folks at places like The Next Right and NextGenGOP have been saying recently. His evaluation: Actually, [...]
