The Pope Foundation Proves its Ineptitude

According to Under the Dome, The Pope Foundation is out with another one of its "studies" criticizing American higher education for failing to study enough of what Pope determines to be important.

This time, they are correct, though not in the way they intend. The report proves that the scientific method and investigative report writing need to be taught to legions of conservative thinktank denizens.

Final Fundraising Push for Kissell, Adame & other NC Dem Challengers

The presidential candidates are busy maxing out their donors and making it hard on all down ticket candidates to raise money in the process. That's why I'm appealing to you one last time before the end of the quarter to help the challengers in our North Carolina congressional races. I know the incumbents are having a hard time raising money as well, but they have far more contacts and larger donor bases, so I will leave them out of this particular plea for funds.

Who knows what goes on in the mind of a veteran reporter who has to crank out stories day after day, week after week. But whatever is going on in the mind of Rob Christensen, it's pretty damn sad.

As you may remember, Christensen's column last week was an ode to the Legend of Liddy Dole, filled to the brim with all her talking points and spin. There was no legitimate reason for the column, no news hook, no immediacy. It was just Rob Christensen at this worst, being played like a fiddle by our very senior Senator.

This week's column is even worse.

Weakness prevails?

What happened to all those ardent Democrats who pledged no more war funding without an exit strategy? Evidently they didn't really mean it. Instead, yet another funding bill gets quietly passed, and a not-so-tacit approval of the administration's Iraq stupidity.

Breaking Blackwater

When we look back at how the Blackwater Empire came tumbling down, one of the most important dates will be September 26th, the day Blackwater backed out of a contract to by more land in North Carolina. In some ways it's a small thing, but in other ways, it is the beginning of the end.

There's a new dimension to the fallout from the Sept. 16 shooting in Baghdad that left 11 Iraqis dead: Blackwater USA apparently has stopped all its expansion projects.
