Well, I was against Obama before you were against Obama, so I’m way cooler. From reader Brian, who spotted this vehicle in Santa Cruz, CA.  Neither Brian nor I could identify the flag, hopefully it’s not something bad: Update:  Thanks to reader L1b3r7y 0r D347h, the flag is for the Santa Cruz Yacht Club.

This time Aaron Walker, the same day he won his freedom from the gag order. Someone called the police and said he shot his wife, and the police went the the house heavily armed.

The University of Chicago, the once prestigious home to Milton Friedman and Art Laffer and birthplace of the “Chicago School” of free-market economics, is now flirting with the idea of becoming the future home to a quite different type of thinker–Keynesian Barack Obama.

Via Patterico (h/t Instapundit and readers): Aaron tells me by phone that the word is Judge Rupp signed the order, modifying the peace order against Aaron to let him speak publicly about Kimberlin. P.S. There is a very interesting aspect of Kimberlin’s response that I will be blogging in full. You will definitely…

From Keith Burgess-Jackson, in April 2010 (hey, I just saw it, but it’s timeless): Two comments on the Tea Party movement. First, progressives refer to its members as angry. This is an attempt to replace a cognitive state (belief) with an affective state (anger), and thereby to diminish the movement. The label…

Mike Huckabee was going to be the hammer used by anti-Rush Limbaugh forces both competitive and political to unseat Limbaugh once and for all. During the height of the anti-Rush fever, I highlighted how Cumulus Media sought to leverage the anti-Limbaugh boycotts by holding Huckabee out as a viable conservative replacement. Readers here weren’t…
