I’ve got a window full of tabbed articles I will never have the time to write about. So you’re going to get them in linked bullet points.
- First, a little bit of classic Mark Steyn. From 2003. His characterization of Democrats resonates and truly today as it did back then.
- This blogger’s favorite columnist, Bret Stephens, had a piece in the latest Foreign Affairs magazine about President Obama’s Middle East policy. It is fantastic, natch.
- Stephens also wrote a column about the importance of truthful history. As you can imagine, this one resonates with me.
- Public intellectual, Rush Limbaugh, wrote a piece for the WSJ wherein he defended the Tea Party movement against their media antagonists. Given liberal hysteria and hyperbole in response to AZ immigration law, this one is timely. (Mind you, I’m not saying I agree with AZ policy, just pointing out liberal hypocrisy.)
- Daniel Henninger documents the massive shift in public opinion away from Obama’s vision of America and towards a more limited vision of the role of government. This shift has occurred in a very short period of time. Like, a year.
- This is the Bret Stephens show. This time he takes aim at the idea of “peace processes” which are, of course, a friggin’ joke. Stephens (I think rightly) calls those who derive benefit therefrom “wicked.”
- When it comes to immigration, I tend toward the WSJ line rather than the National Review one. Looks like Jonah Goldberg agrees. Also, Byron York does some good political reportage on the Arizona law particulars.
- Thomas Sowell, another favorite, on the misuse and abuse of history to serve political ends–in this instance, race and slavery.
