An Absence of Class (NYT)

Bob Herbert speaks

by Bob Herbert

It’s long past time to acknowledge that a party that promotes ignorance and provides a safe house for bigotry cannot serve the best interests of our country.

Eraser Duty for Bart? (NYT)

Political science.

by Maureen Dowd

Nuns’ support for the health care bill has been dismissed, largely because the bishops and the pope would rather deprive people of good care than look soft on abortion.

Flow of foreign-educated parents.

by Thomas L. Friedman

Seeing the 40 finalists in the 2010 Intel science contest is a reminder of how great our nation can be with a constant flow of legal immigrants.

Clarence Thomas Hearings CSPAN Archive

Susan Hoerchner testifies for Anita Hill in the Thomas Hearings. (minutes 20-29)

When I heard this in 1991 on the radio, thought: Aha!

Now here it is again thanks to CSPAN.

Hoerchner said that her sympathy for Hill's problems with Thomas did not seem to help, but actually if anything made Hill feel worse.

Under what circumstances does sympathy fail to work? Under what circumstances does sympathy make it worse?

When the first party is making it up.

It seems if anything more obvious than when I heard it the first time.

The Red and the Blue


Inappropriate Rules

Alan Colmes is outraged by Dan Reihl's post Isn't it time to euthanize Reid's Wife?

I thought it was great. Limbaugh is certain to cite it.

It went on a little long about abortion, which is not to the point, but didn't suffer the overland extended trombone solo failing of most of the genre.

Colmes's outrage raises fundamental questions about the left.

It's no wonder the left can't ever figure out consequences.

Relations escape them completely.
