As Operation Protective Edge it’s worth anticipating the likely response to Israel’s latest war against Hamas. Israel will be accused of a disproportionate response and of not taking care to avoid collateral damage. Already there’s been at least one incident in which a number of civilians were injured and and 7...

Last week after the killing of Mohammad Abu Khdair, Isabel Kershner of the New York Times wrote:

Hillary didn’t have to defend the child rapist.

Once she took the case, she had to do everything ethical to provide the defense. But she didn’t have to take the case.

Hillary could have just said no.

A few articles this week effectively absolve Hamas (and more generally the Palestinians) for the latest escalation in the Middle East and put the bulk of the blame on Israel. I’m only going to focus on two.

As Bryan Jacoutot documented here three months ago, Maryland’s health exchange was a complete failure. In private industry or nearly any other field of endeavor, an employee who is responsible for such a visible failure would be subject to demotion or firing. But this is politics.
