Limbaugh Blames Dems for GOP Scam

Rush Limbaugh, with the kind of moral vacuousness that has come to define the man, recently blamed the “stupidity” of Democrats for allowing Republicans to disenfranchise voters: “And they show up on Wednesday to vote when the polls are closed, and the Democrats claim a trick has been played on them. That’s how stupid some of their voters are.”

Condoleezza Rice Threatens Sudan

While speaking about the Darfur crisis at the United Nations, the secretary of state warned the Sudanese government that “other measures” were available, should it continue to block a U.N. peacekeeping proposal.  Such measures are unlikely to include force, so long as the U.S. maintains troop levels in Iraq and Afghanistan while flirting with an invasion of Iran.

Grim New Milestones

U.S. combat deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan now equal the 2,973 lives lost during the Sept. 11 attacks. Also, the number of civilians slain in Iraq in the last month reached an unprecedented level: 6,599 dead.

    Has American Airlines Banned Gay Air-Kissing?

    An interesting confluence of apparent homo- and terror-phobia: A gay couple flying on an JFK-bound AA flight out of Paris were told that their air kissing was impermissible; when the couple inquired further, the captain threatened to divert the plane.

    Sullivan Responds to Harris on the Pope

    Responding to Sam Harris’ Truthdig-published column on the pope’s recent speech on “faith versus reason,” Andrew Sullivan writes, “Harris both condemns Benedict for being controversial in inflaming Muslims and then condemns him for not being controversial enough.”

    Gambians Vote With Marbles

    Check out the Gambian voting system. It’s enviably simple: “Voters enter a booth and pop a clear glass marble into one of three drums representing the candidates.” The marble hits a bell on its way down, preventing people from voting more than once. No hanging chads, no hacking, just a satisfying plunk when your vote goes in.  Are we advocating marbles? No, but a paper trail would be good.
