The Gateway (Liunatic Edition)
I'm not going to talk about the legal issues touched upon in this article, but let's not be too dismissive of Liu's chances to become Mayor.
Back in the old days it was considered a "reform" for elected officials not to be subject to the dictates of party officials on issues of public policy. Now, not so much.
Still one feels bad for those Democratic State Committee members who were under the delusion that it is the Democrats who elected them to who they are accountable. Capitol Confidential » Democrats table resolutions on taxes, fracking blog.timesunion.com
Replacing the OWS library will be far more difficult than if it belonged to Rick Perry—his consists of three books, and he hasn't even finished coloring one yet. Common Cause Calls On Bloomberg To Replace OWS Library | PolitickerNY www.politickerny.com
One of the scary parts of the Romney narrative is that he will appeal to moderate voters by challenging the President on competence rather than ideology (admittedly not always a successful narrative for technocratic Massachusetts governors).
As I've noted before, I rarely discuss the Second Amendment with my friends, because I have the somewhat controversial opinion that the plain meaning of words is exactly that, so the regrettable Second Amendment means people can own guns, subject to regulation. I don't particularly care for that, but I don't like equal representation in the US Senate either.
As usual, Frum is the last honest conservative:
ACKERMAN: Knowing everything you know now, if you had been in Congress in 2002, would you have voted to authorize force against Saddam Hussein, yes or no?

There's a certain irony in Andrea Peyser complaining that anyone is unqualified to do journalism, but she's not technically in the wrong about Chelsea.
The problem is that Peyser is supposed to be a champion of free enterprise, and NBC is in business to make money, and from that perspective, and only that perspective, the decision to hire Chelsea is utterly defensible.
Anyway, Peyser doesn't believe her own argument, which was made oh so much better in "Broadcast News.”
I woke up in the middle of the night with a stratling revelation: my recent complaints about City Hall News and The Capital conflating the Brooklyn Democratic Party's entire "Reform" movement together as if they were part of the "New Kings Democrats."
I had forgotten to note that Jo Anne Simon is not only not a part of NKD, but that when Simon ran for City Council in 2009, NKD ran sure loser Evan Theis against her, helping to sabotage her campaign and elect the Lopez candiate, Stephen Levin.
Hope that's not too hypertechnical for CHN.
Bouldin's very gracious description of our nite on the Rock, with profuse flattery for Gatey, humble reflection, a slight personal overshare and a title that is perhaps the not the best choice of words.
