Re: “Handicapping the races for governor, Congress, president

Excellent observations throughout here. I agree that the partisan sniping will only get worse. They can't stop bickering with each other and fighting for power long enough to do their jobs. Ideally, we should leave drawing our Congressional districts up to someone other than legislators whose only objective seems to be to keep themselves in power (no matter which of the big two parties they identify with).

Re: “General Assembly underhandedly passes Defense of Marriage Act

Thanks for your approach in this article. The bill itself is bad enough, threatening to defile our state constitution and it's entire reason for being. The part that makes me most angry, though, is the lack of public hearing paired with the stealthy way the bill's supporters slipped it onto the table, both in the House and the Senate votes. Sure, this may have been the way the old majority operated in the G.A. when they were in power, but that isn't an excuse for revenge on the part of the new majority.

Re: “Why does the right wing worship Ayn Rand?

Philip, your comment is a much better composed response than my own to say what I was thinking. I appreciate that. In poor Crowther's defense, I don't know if he has blind faith in Krugman, I just think he's too lazy to think outside the self-righteous box where people Krugman hang out.

Re: “Why does the right wing worship Ayn Rand?

In references to my last comment... just to clarify because I'm pedantic like that...

I know you mentioned the fact that she was an atheist, but I'm just not sure why you think anyone who embraces some of Rand's philosophical points should expected to be 100% philosophically aligned to her? It *is* possible, you know.

Re: “Why does the right wing worship Ayn Rand?

Oh yes, and Ayn Rand was quite well known for being an athiest.

Serious, dude. Research. It helps.

Re: “Why does the right wing worship Ayn Rand?

Um... what? When was Ayn Rand ever a social conservative?

I guess actually having a article backed by research is too much to ask?

Re: “Obama and Libya: From hopemonger to warmonger

Good article, and good to see people starting to looking at all this warmongering objectively without emphasis on the R and D labels.
