A couple of things that caught my eye in yesterday's reading:
James Taranto makes a great point about the prolific smear campaign against Tea Parties: if the journalists, bloggers and politicians were really worried about political violence and incendiary rhetoric, they would tone down their own rhetoric out of fear. The very fact that they have ramped it up is de facto evidence, as well as an admission, that they know that there is nothing to fear from Tea Parties.
Another story in Monday's BOTWT noted yet another in the endless line of global warming frauds. Taranto's comment nails it:
Those of us outside "the scientific community," meanwhile, wonder how it can get away with continuing calling itself "scientific" when its conclusions are impervious to empirical testing.
