News is breaking that Supreme Court Justice David Souter is retiring. There will be a fight over his replacement, for sure. And Arlen Specter switching may have given Republicans a trump card to block an unacceptable replacement.

It would be very easy to fall into a depression over Arlen Specter switching political parties, giving Democrats a likely filibuster-proof Senate majority. The result will be that Obama will be able to push through much of his agenda without meaningful debate.

Not that I will miss Specter personally. Specter h...

Robert Stacy McCain has the run down on the apoplectic reaction of liberals to the “tea parties” sweeping the country. His post appropriately is titled “WTF” based on this hyperventilation (via Instapundit) by someone who apparently only watches MSNBC:

President Obama was elected democratically, according to the doctrines set forth by the...

The left-wing group Think Progress is complaining of Conservatives Holding Up Increasing Number Of Key Obama Nominees. According to the post:

David Brooks, columnist at the New York Times, announces that “Barack Obama is not who we thought he was.” Thanks for nothing, Mr. Brooks. You cheered Obama into office along with all the other enlightened “moderates” and now you tell us this:

What is it with this President? Obama has an obsessive need to find enemies against whom to campaign. When Obama’s presidency is over, hopefully in four years (but likely eight years) there will be two sets of psychologists: Those who provide therapy to the American population which has seen its life...
