Things I’d Like to Post About Today ….. (061308, Morning)

Filed under: TILTpatBIDHAT — Tom @ 9:15 am

….. But I Don’t Have Any Time For:

  • Reaction to this news, given his obsession with steering as much business as possible to China while he was in charge at Home Depot, regardless of the underlying economics: “What did Bob Nardelli know and when did he know it?”
  • Sports fauxtography in the Washington Post (HT Instapundit). Original posting here.
  • Shameless brag — Yesterday Rush mentioned, and Drudge linked to, Adam Liptak’s NY Times item (“Out of Step With Allies, U.S. Defends Freedom to Offend”) I criticized on Wednesday (and cross-posted at NewsBusters). The Drudge link to Liptak’s piece is still at his home page as of this moment. Rush said he would have more to say about Liptak’s piece on his program today. The sympathy for free-speech suppression by the mainstream left is revealing, and disturbing.
  • Waves of emigrants are leaving Britain. Money quote: “Despite talk of recession in the U.S., even though it has perhaps not occurred yet, most of these individuals are either aiming to move to the U.S., looking into it, or would like to.” Voting with their feet, as “someone” has discussed from time to time.
  • Not a “Bush is eeeeevil” thing — Mark Levin recited important and onveniently forgotten history yesterday in reaction to the Supremes’ ruling on Gitmo detainees (HT Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters) — “Denying foreign enemy combatants access to U.S. courts is an incident of war. Ladies and gentlemen, every single president of the United States has taken that position. Every single one.” By all means, if supporters of this ruling believe every previous US president has been wrong on this matter, they should say so. From a separation of powers perspective, this Supremes’ ruling represents an “opinion” that the President would be within his province to ignore, if not now, certainly in similar future situations, unless Congress in the meantime passes a law to codify the ruling (it might actually require a constitutional amendment).
  • Fitting that ABC is asking “Are we living in the last century of our civilization?” The network, however, is looking at enviro-nonsense for the answer. The better place to look is at the previous item.
