And I can't help but wonder if her slim victory in Indiana consisted entirely of people who won't be willing to vote for her come fall should she be the Democratic nominee against McCain. They did a lot of exit polling about how many who voted for her would support McCain over Obama. But I didn't see any coverage of how many of her supporters liked her over McCain.
The nail in the coffin for me was Clinton's defense of her rather misguided gas tax plan. After months of spouting off about how professional economists thought that her health care plan was The One True Plan, she turns around and says that virtually every economist in the country is nuts because She Knows Better about what happens if you remove a tax from a limited resource during a season of high demand. That sort of lack of judgement and reasoning ability is exactly what you don't want in a chief executive.
In other news every US patent judge appointed in the last 8 years may be serving unconstitutionally and, if they are found to be so, every ruling they've made may be struck down. Hurray for chaos in the world of intellectual property!
Awesome article on the science of treating people as if they were not rational economic agents. Thank you Arts and Letters Daily for giving me such fun reading matter. Thank you ni for pointing AL Daily out to me!
One reason among many why Scalia is an asshatted moron and judicial relativist. Of course, this comes on top of the discussion in the comments from the day before where the opposite is being argued. The comments in each are a nice back and forth.
Fritzl, 73 claimed that media coverage was ``unfair'' and ``entirely one-dimensional'', given the fact that he did not kill his daughter and the children he produced with her during 24 years of sexual abuse in a subterranean bunker in Amstetten.
The French know how to take care of traffic cameras: ``They smashed the lens, poured gasoline inside and set it on fire.''
I've been tired and drained of energy the past couple weeks and haven't written much and have slacked off of studying and have struggled to stay awake at work. I think stress is the biggest culprit. Who knows? I think I'm starting to feel better. I woke up at about 4AM this morning. After an hour of not being able to get back to sleep, I stumbled out of bed.
Time for me to start farting around and get ready for work.
