I waited a whole day before posting about the Sarah Palin resignation. Well, not a whole day, but longer than almost everyone else in the blogosphere. Here’s my take as of this moment in time, subject to change:

I don’t know why Sarah Palin resigned, what her plans are, or whether she...

You know the 2012 campaign has started, because the hatchet-men and women of the media are attacking Sarah Palin based on anonymous sources (including some allegedly from the McCain campaign) and dubious rumors and innuendo.

First there were the mounting attacks on the Palin daughters and son, Trig Palin. Now a complete...

Paul Krugman proved, once again, why he has no credibility. In a column in today’s New York Times, titled “The Big Hate,” Krugman blames conservatives for the shooting at the Holocaust Museum because conservatives have had the audacity to harshly criticize the Obama administration.

Krugman picks a few pieces of sentences from...

When the NY Times takes Obama to task, I am always a little suspicious. Will this be a “he’s not perfect, but at least he’s not Bush” type of critique; a compliment disguised as a criticism.

So I don’t know what to make of this piece in today’s paper. Noting that Obama’s...

Matthew Yglesias is one of the best-known left-wing bloggers who does not hesitate to attack anyone he considers to be bigoted (under very expansive and political definitions).
