    Free afternoon

    Free afternoon

    Tonight there will be a live blog here for the debate, starting at 9 p.m. Eastern (probably will turn it live closer to 8:30).

    Until then, here’s a running list of stuff of interest:

    • Glenn Greenwald is upset that I’ve been calling him out repeatedly, so he’s trying to take my post on the drone downing out of context.  See Update.  Waaah.
    • Obama is reminding us that he needs a second term to finish the job.  You know what?  I believe him.
    • James Taranto sees the idiocy.
    • Supreme Court has taken Texas redistricting case.  Election Law Blog discusses what it all means.
    • Palestinians are furious that Newt told the truth about their history.  It doesn’t change the need for a resolution, but let’s at least be honest that Palestinian nationalism is a creature of the anti-Israel movement.  Guess what word they’re calling Newt (hint, starts with an R)  (added) Newt said same thing in 2008.
    • To be continued.
    • Photo of Day.
    • Prof. Dan Shechtman, who I spotlighted earlier, picked up his Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
    • Instapoll up on which candidate is most likely to beat Obama.  Go vote!’
    • If you are shopping online, please remember my Amazon link, and other links on the Shopping Page.  It doesn’t cost you extra, but helps here.
    • They’re baaack.

    I was disappointed in conservative columnists’ responses to Obama’s Osawatomie, Kansas speech. While I read many good pieces on it none seemed to have the outrage that the speech deserved. Are people outraged out?

    When Obama gave his little bravado one-liner about killing Osama and most of the other terrorists the other day, my thoughts turned immediately to Dirty Harry. This is the result:

    As for the Coffee Pary being back … it never really existed in the first place!

    I don’t blog, and haven’t since 2003, but I comment a lot on stuff around the blogosphere. Some of my comments may seem outrageous to some folks, but they are invariably proven right. A long time ago I blogged that we had a lot to worry about because of the Muslim Triangle in South America, and I raised the possibility of an invasion of the US delineating who would do it and where they’d be coming from. Evens have now caught up to that prediction. Another comment long has been about the “Palestinians” and that there is no “Palestinian” people, only a bunch of Arabs who want to destroy Israel. Surprise, surprise! Newt Gingrich holds the same view and now the thing has entered the mainstream. Ah! The joys of thinking outside the box!
