Somin examines the case for libertarian support of
GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman. Well worth checking out.
Huntsman is nowhere near as libertarian as I am, and probably also significantly less libertarian than Gary Johnson. On the other hand, Huntsman is clearly much more libertarian than Mitt Romney and New[t] Gingrich, the current Republican front-runners. And unlike several of the other candidates he seems knowledgeable and competent. I think it’s also pretty obvious that he’s more libertarian than President Obama. It’s unrealistic for libertarians to expect a viable presidential candidate who agrees with us down the line. What is realistic is seeking one who will make federal policy significantly more libertarian than it is today.

True fact: Walt Disney and Werner Heisenberg were both born
on December 5, 1901, 110 years ago today. Wired
has the scoop on both.
It's that most wonderful time of the year! Specifically,
the time of the year for Dave
Barry's Gift Guide!
For example, there's the WineRack. Which is not what we generally think of as "a wine rack." Pictured at right—no, your right—Dave explain why it's an udderly appropriate gift:
For the true wine connoisseur, there is nothing more enjoyable than sucking body-temperature wine from a tube connected to a polyurethane bladder concealed in a woman’s undergarment
That, in a nutshell, is the appeal of the Wine Rack, a sports brassiere equipped with a bladder that holds 25 ounces of wine or other beverages. According to the manufacturer, you can wear the Wine Rack to “movies, concerts, ball games – anywhere you can imagine” and drink through “a drinking tube long enough to route as you wish.” And here’s a bonus:As your wine rack empties, your bosoms appear to shrink dramatically.
I'm not a total football nut, but I enjoyed Jason
Gay's recent column about Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. I chuckled
all the way through.
He cannot fly. He cannot see through walls. He cannot talk to the animals, not even cats. He's never picked up an automobile and tossed it across the road. He's failed to publish poetry in Russian. He can't explain Ryan Reynolds.Something Tebow can do: beat the Vikings yesterday. Granted, that's not hard this year.
These are just a few of the many things Tim Tebow can't do.
