    Open – A Tape from California

    Open – A Tape from California

    Traveling all day, now in Palm Desert, CA.  Because there’s almost no way to get there from central New York, we ended up flying into Orange County airport and driving.  Along the way we saw these windfarms — Obama would so proud:

    From some sneak peeks at the internet when not in the air, here’s what caught my eye:

    Waaaah – This is what happens when politicians play the rape card:

    Joe Biden’s office has complained to the Senate press gallery about a confrontation the vice president had with a conservative journalist last week on Capitol Hill.

    No time to analyze Perry’s flat tax plan.  What do you think?  (added: Mark Levin likes it)

    Things are not looking good in Ohio on the collective bargaining bill.  Hope for the best, but prepare for massive media spin about a rebound for unions.

    WaPo, with the help of NPR, is still going after Rubio on the dates 50 years ago when his parents left Cuba.  Still waiting for them to get leaked copies of Obama’s college record, and some gap filling on an amazingly unexamined life.

    Oh, and one last thing, can we stick a fork in Socialist Europe yet?  And if we can, will it stop Democrats from trying to turn us into Socialist Europe?

    Professor Jacobsen said he respected Jennifer Rubin. How about her Perry derangement syndrome, including EIGHT hit pieces in one day!…

      I am not sure about her conservative bona fides. She is a decent writer and thinker but she was also an ardent John Kerry supporter in 2004. I don’t think she has ever explained her ‘conversion’ to conservative politics.
      There are still conservative writers/thinkers/bloggers who still consider Dave Weigel (the person J Rubin replaced) a decent guy despite the fact he was on the Journolist threads. Some still consider him to be a ‘conservative’.
      Ms Rubin is fast becoming the Jay Carney for the Romney campaign.

      I don’t want to speak for the Good Prof, but I took him to mean he respected what she did in that instance. That does not necessarily confer respect in a global sense.

      Of course, it is possible to respect someone with whom you disagree, even violently.

      Personally, I find the Rubin makes sense some of the time — and is roundly vilified for it whenever she does by her readers (and I suspect some of her co-workers).

      I don’t really get the Perry thing. She just doesn’t like the guy and like most people in such a case, seems to have no idea why — or does not want to admit it. So she looks for reasons to justify and if they don’t square with reality… well, it’s just a column, right?

        I think that McCain is right some of the time. So is Orin Hatch. So was Bush Sr./Jr. But they are all big government establishment RINOs. So is Romney and so is his cheerleader, Rubin.

    Not really! You could’ve flown non-stop from JFK to Ontario, CA – closer then Orange county.
