More snippets

(1) NRO's blog is quite good.

(2) The Republicans stepped up and drop-kicked the Democrats right through the goal posts on Friday by calling a vote on a resolution to pull out of Iraq. The bill was thunderingly defeated 403 to 3, as intended. Here's the AP's take:

"Republicans hoped to place Democrats in an unappealing position -- either supporting a withdrawal that critics said would be precipitous or opposing it and angering voters who want an end to the conflict."

I thought calling the vote was a totally sweet move by the Republican leadership, and wish Democrats would do more things like it. Nancy Pelosi, D-Hypocrite, disagreed and called it "a disgrace." Ha. Several Democrats called it a "political stunt." REALLY? Thanks for the incisive analysis--I couldn't tell.

Read about it here, here or here.

(3) Anyone have any thoughts on this weird article by Jack Shafer, Slate's Guy Who Hates on the New York Times and Google?

1) From the link to the racial slur database in the NRO blog

Bean Dipper- White men, or any non-hispanic, who date hispanic women.

2) Another great article on the Murtha stunt pulled by Nancy Pelosi and others... http://msnbc.msn.com/id/10118733/site/newsweek/
I totally agree, I find it hilarious that Democrats will push an issue until they can vote for it, and then they will distance themselves from the "trap" as much as possible.

3) I think the article doesn't make sense from the get-go, I don't think he understands that companies can adapt, especially large ones with lots of discretionary cash like Google. Take his example of Apple- sure not as many people have Apple computers, but Apple is making more money and is a much better company than it was 20 years ago...

A Republican move totally sweet? possible? I think not.
