Cruising the Web

IBD says that Hugo Chavez has become a drug leader with the purpose of sending help to the drug gangsters in Mexico in order to destabilize the country.

Matt Lewis agrees
with Keith Olbermann - the media has always been biased. Yes, indeed. I would like us to get away from the illusion that there is such a thing as the non-ideological, completely neutral newcaster. Even when the bias isn't explicit, it's there in the choice of what stories to cover and give time to. I prefer to have the biases clear and up front.

Ah, a homework to warm the cockles of any Republican's heart - Democrats in Chaos Over Pelosi's Power. It's no fun dancing with the one that brung you if she brought you to defeat.

What a surprise: Republicans distrust Obama.

The tragicomedy of Charlie Rangel's ethical downfall has played out for way too long. What should disturb everyone is that this was dragged out until the week after the election. The question of his penalty should really have been left up to the voters - and in time for the primary. Of course, the fun is just beginning. Next up is Maxine Waters. And how long will it take before we get Ethics Committee verdicts on the members of the Congressional Black Caucus who were sending scholarships to their relatives and the family of their aides?

In the continuing series of asking what would be the reaction if Bush or conservatives had done this - John Podesta is pushing for Obama to circumvent checks and balances by using executive power to get around the Republicans in Congress.

The WSJ explodes
Obama's preferred narrative that he became a statist somehow by accident just because of the economic emergency that existed when he entered office.
