New week, new nonsense to explore:

— VDH thinks Obama is “more at ease with virulent anti-Westerners” than with decent folk.

— Andy McCarthy thinks Obama secretly wants tyranny to prevail in Iran but is restraining himself because “It would have been political suicide to issue a statement supportive of the mullahs.”

— Kit Bond thinks banks provide “too much information” so there’s no need for consumer protection.


— What happens when New America Foundation scholars stop being polite and start getting real.

Your song of the day is the surprisingly upbeat “Catastrophe”.
