Cruising the Web

So the FBI is investigating New Jersey Democrat Senator Bob Menendez for sleeping with underage Dominican prostitutes at sex parties down in the Dominican Republic. Lovely. Shouldn't the Secret Service be the ones investigating this? They're the ones with this sort of expertise.

Kimberley Strassel explains how the Democrats plan to enact their climate agenda even though they can't get a cap and trade bill through Congress.

Now that women are allowed in combat, expect a lawsuit requiring all 18-year old women to have to register for the draft. The Supreme Court has upheld the present limitation to just young men having to register because women weren't available for combat roles. Now that that is no longer true, what justification is there for this gender discrimination? Not that I think we have any chance for reinstating the draft, but young women should get used to the idea of having to register.

Ed Morrissey explains why the Senate Democrats are willing now to produce a budget. They don't have to worry about the former chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, Kent Conrad, who might have actually produced a budget without concern for the policy implications. Now Patty Murray is the new chair and she's a safe political hack so Harry Reid doesn't have to worry as much about what she might come up with.

The Education Department now says that schools must provide sports programs for the disabled if those students are not able to compete in the traditional sports programs. And who is going to fund this?

Hillary Clinton: Postmodernist.

Why should anyone be surprised to discover the Obama is a reactionary liberal?

The wealthy have found one quick way to cut their taxes - move to another state. And they're taking the jobs their businesses provide with them.
