There is plenty of news about Palestinian “protests” and the Israeli killing of two “protesters.”

Liberal Bloggers at White House 2010

Hey, remember Journo-list? The Ezra Klein organized brigade of lefty bloggers and “journalists” who coordinated messaging in the 2008 campaign for Obama. Many of whom later were rewarded with perks such as meetings at the White House?

They have received promotions, and now are embedded in the mainstream and well-funded new media.

In the wake of Fatah’s embrace of Hamas earlier this week there has been a very interesting reaction. Actually, the reaction has been interesting because it’s been mostly non-existent.

Though the New York Times and Washington Post have reported on Fatah’s betrayal of the American sponsored peace process, neither has published an...

Congratulations. Best wishes for mother and child.

It would be perfectly natural for Hillary to show off the grandbaby, particularly if, as expected, she runs for President.
