Strutting and fretting in an insane world.

Maybe Pawlenty should hold off on denouncing Mitt Romney over his Massachusetts health care law in light of his own record on Cap and Trade.
Chris Matthews: "I hate that so-called, evenhanded objective journalism."

Big time fireworks
A star about 4 billion light years away is being shredded by a black hole, giving off gamma radiation. Kind of makes life on earth look serene.

A Hint for Wars on Drugs
If you're simultaneously conducting a war on illegal firearms sales make sure you don't let one effort get in the other's way. Would the ones fighting drugs be helped by the BATF's operations? Why not have both teams meet and work together?
Bruce Bialosky tries to use logic with conservatives who seem to think Romney would be worse than Obama. A lot of these are bitter end Palinistas who hate anybody who isn't her. I keep saying that it's not good for us to divide our own ranks and attack each other with such vehemence. Trying to portray Romney as some sort of liberal is silly and counterproductive. The major issue in this campaign is cutting spending, eliminating deficits and reducing the national debt. On these, nobody should think Romney is any different from the others.
Mexico and ten other foreign countries are suing the State of Georgia to block enforcement of its new illegal immigration law. Actually, these countries aren't plaintiffs, since, I suspect, they lack standing, but they have filed Amicus Curiae, "friend of the court," briefs in support of civil liberties groups.
This kind of lawsuit suggests a desire for the United States to provide its own Constitution to everyone on earth as though they were U.S. citizens. This reminds me of the futility and waste of homeowners with air conditioning opening all their doors and windows in an effort to make the outdoors more comfortable, especially at a time when we're being lectured for using more than our share of energy resources.
