N.Y. Post Gives Obama the Nod

The idea of any news organization associated with conservative Australian media baron Rupert Murdoch backing a liberal Democrat (egad!) such as Barack Obama may seem strange, but upon closer inspection the New York Post’s endorsement for the Democratic nomination reads less like a bid for Obama than an effort to avoid four more years of “Team Clinton” in the White House.

Mukasey Dodges Senators’ Grilling on Waterboarding

Giuliani to Endorse McCain

Rudy Giuliani is expected to endorse John McCain at the Reagan library in California on Wednesday. The man who suffered one of the most dramatic campaign implosions in recent memory explained his collapse to supporters this way: “You don’t always win, but you can always try to do it right, and you did.” Although doing it a bit earlier, too, wouldn’t have hurt.

Protesters Punished, Blackwater Shooters Remain Free

Last week at the gates of the mercenary company Blackwater, nonviolent protesters who re-enacted an infamous Blackwater shooting were arrested. As “Blackwater” author Jeremy Scahill notes: “The arrest of the activists and the subsequent five days they spent locked up in jail is more punishment than any Blackwater mercenaries have received for their deadly actions against Iraqi civilians.”

The Securities and Exchange Commission has already launched investigations of its own, and though it’s nice to see the authorities crack down on improper practices, it would be nice to have some oversight before there was a crisis.
