Representative Sample: I now apologize for poo pooing my conservative friends' fervent criticisms of Barack Obama. I heard part of his speech before congress on the radio and saw part of it on TV. Scary. Bill Clinton is a sputtering, trouserless Porky Pig next to this man.
2. "IF YOU CAN'T SAY ANYTHING NICE ABOUT ISLAM..." Inspired by Christopher Hitchen's excellent column in Slate.
Representative Sample: I DON'T CARE ABOUT ISLAM except insofar that people of that faith want to destroy me, my family, my country and my way of life. For more than 50 years of my life, Islam and I got along famously. I completely ignored it; and praise be to Allah, it completely ignored me.
3. "Just To Be Clear, I Hope That Barack Obama Fails...." Reasons to hope for failure.
4. "The top ten stories you won’t find in the headlines" Some very interesting points.
Representative Sample:We are focused on the "rise of big government" and miss the point that private businesses are getting bailed out left and right, often on very good terms, and that no one is talking about long-term nationalization
5. "Required Reading" Links to an excellent article.
Representative Sample: Dissent is patriotic. Except when it isn’t. That means you, bub. So shuddup already.
