  • Victor Davis Hanson, September 2008:
    […] I think […] that millions of Americans are simply tired of being lectured at by smug elites.
    Victor Davis Hanson, July 2007:
    Americans […] are blissfully uneducated. They have not acquired a broad knowledge of language, literature, philosophy, and history.
    Quotes are via University Diarist in her "Scathing Online Schoolmarm" mode. She's not a fan of Hanson.

    But I think she's taking a cheap shot here. Couldn't Hanson be right on both counts? I think he is.

  • Best quote I've seen on Sarah Palin is from an Althouse commenter.
    From now on, when a Democrat says "But what if McCain drops dead on his first day in office?!?!?!" I'm going to say "dude -- don't tease me like that."

  • Iowahawk gathers a representative selection of R-rated American voices on "Bristol's bastard bun-in-the-oven". For example, an "Andrew S" says:
    As a mainstream conservative Catholic of conscience, I am shocked and disgusted by all of the suggestions of Palin family baby-snatching and witchcraft and shape-shifting that I've been reading about in my columns. How can we really know that Bristol's new baby isn't actually the result of an incestuous prenatal affair between Trig and his probably-aborted missing twin sister during Bristol's still secret pregnancy last year? How many heads does it have? Is this new baby itself pregnant, or possibly wearing a tiny rubber pregnancy suit as a distraction from other Palin family pregnancy scandals? Americans need to know the truth whether this fetal mutant is Palin's grandchild, great-great-grandchild, or double-grandcousin uncle in-law twice removed.

  • Fortunately, the other side is cool with all that post-partisan stuff. Via Clayton Cramer, we have Ms. Fatimah Ali, writing in the Philadelphia (aka City of Brotherly Love) Daily News:
    If McCain wins, look for a full-fledged race and class war, fueled by a deflated and depressed country, soaring crime, homelessness - and hopelessness!
    Race war, hm? That reminds me…

  • But let's not make it all politics today. Wired has a list of iPhone/iPod apps you can use to replace your tools. Read to the end; I think they strained for that last one a bit.
