Genius Harvard Econ Prof Greg Mankiw points
out that the "cap-'n'-trade" bill under consideration is
in direct conflict with promises President Obama made on the

(Of course, if we had a non-sycophantic media, you might have heard about this from other sources. Which brings us to …)
quite masterfully, what we mean when we talk about media bias: the disparate
treatment of assertions made by Dick Cheney and Barack Obama. Guess
whose assertions are singled out as being "difficult to prove"?
George Will criticizes
law review article by Zephyr Teachout, who sounds horrifying to
anyone who takes free speech seriously. Prof Teachout means to find

allow the government to regulate.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Washington Post
has the amazing story of the Three
Wolf Moon T-Shirt, Available in Various Sizes.

Why? Because of an Internet meme started at collegehumor.com which pointed out the amusing reviews the shirt was getting.
