Excess Hoggage - Out of Time Edition

By Libby

Song in my head. I'm off to do family stuff again today so I'll be out until this evening. Hoping to come home with more energy and do some posting tonight, but in the interim, here's what you missed if you don't follow my Newshoggers' posts.


Lieberman makes GOP status official. Endorses McCain.

Ron Paul busts fundraising records. Boston Tea Party fundraiser nets record breaking 6 million in one day.

Hillary is looking a little less inevitable.

This is a moot point, as it's on the floor right now but note I put an early warning that Reid is selling us out on FISA.

Dems caved to Bush bullying again this week. No big surprise but still disappointing.

Don't miss this one about a US military platoon that staged a mutiny. They refused to go out on their mission because they thought they would lose it and start killing people randomly.

This one is funny in a sad way. Creative financing to avoid foreclosure. Grow pot.

It's finally official. Government websites suck and it's almost impossible to get the public information from them.

Clinton dumped drug use into Obama's lap. I'm disappointed he didn't come up with better answers.

A new poll shows 99% of Americans wouldn't take drugs if they were legalized. No kidding. It's not like they couldn't get them now if they wanted to try them.

Obey was talking big on standing up to Bush on the budget. As we found out, that didn't amount to much.

Another take on the call for impeachment.

Want you TV shows back. Go here.

Small advances in cocaine/crack law parity. It's still up to Congress to fix this permanently but that's a fight for after the silly season I think.

I'm not impressed by his argument Lester. This is where the Libertarians start looking like the fringe right.

american conservative has dedicated an issue to how truly awful rudy guliani is. the article by glenn greewald, not really a conservative but what the heck, is great but the cover illustration takes the cake

That was actually a good article Lester, but you know that I love Greenwald. I'm surprised AmCon published it though. What's up with that?

he was antiwar.com's liberal of the year

www.antiwar.com/justin

and justin raimondo is one of the people who runs american conservative as well.

lewrockwell and antiwar are as likely to run greenwald or even noam chomsky as they are Pat Buchanan or ron Paul. they consider being anti war part of being conservative, more or less.

"war is the health of the state" meaning the governemnt grows in size and scope during wars. therefore if you are for small government you are logically anti war.

liberals like , say , Paul Krugman don't make the cut because they are generally pro state, but anyone who wants to critize the governemnt gets a pass, which makes for a pretty huge tent circa this adminstration.

I need to read antiwar more often. The TNR piece was already covered yesterday by some bigger bloggers but it was an amazingly good piece coming from Tucker, of all people.
