Follow-up on Obama and Fox News  —  I suppose I should follow up my earlier diary on Obama going on Fox News since it has sparked some discussion.  Eugene at Dailykos wrote the following diary, the gist of which was as follows. … That's not really the issue at hand, though of course that is how it's being framed.
Fox News:
TRANSCRIPT: OBAMA ON ‘FNS’  —  Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic presidential candidate from Illinois, sat for an interview Saturday in Indiana with Chris Wallace.  The interview aired on “FOX News Sunday.”  They touched on a wide range of topics including the marathon race to the Democratic nomination …

Robert H. Frank / Washington Post:
Don't Blame All Borrowers  —  After more than a decade of steep growth, home prices peaked last year and have been falling rapidly.  Over 9 million mortgages are “under water,” meaning that more is owed on them than the home is worth.  As foreclosures mount, additional homes come on the market …
Todd Zywicki / The Volokh Conspiracy:
ROBERT FRANK FALLS FOR THE TWO-INCOME TRAP: In today's Washington Post, Robert Frank writes: … Professor Frank has missed the ball on this one.  As I observed in the Wall Street Journal last August in my column “The Two Income-Tax Trap” the math behind this simply doesn't add up—using Warren and Tyagi's own numbers:
City Journal:
An Anatomy of Surrender  —  Islam divides the world into two parts.  The part governed by sharia, or Islamic law, is called the Dar al-Islam, or House of Submission.  Everything else is the Dar al-Harb, or House of War, so called because it will take war—holy war, jihad—to bring it into the House of Submission.

Wright NAACP Speech PART TWO Reverend Wright NAACP Speech PART THREE Reverend Wright NAACP Speech PART FOUR  —  Wow.  I saw this on CNN tonight - and was moved to tears.
Mark Steyn / The Corner:
Leaving the left  —  The Australian columnist Pamela Bone died of cancer this weekend.  She was a feminist, an atheist and most of the other -ists you might expect from a western woman of her general disposition (she was a recipient, among many other awards, of something called the “UN media peace prize").
Mark Steyn / The Corner:
Re: “Kill the police!”  —  Actually, Kathryn, your post gets right to the heart of the matter.  —  In a scrupulously politically correct age, it's not offensive to organize a “Kill the police!” demo or to preach that the government invented Aids in order to perpetrate an African-American genocide.
Michael Isikoff / Newsweek:
In the Rezko Trial, A New Name Surfaces: Karl Rove  —  The trial of Chicago developer and political fixer Antoin “Tony” Rezko has been closely watched for any mention of the defendant's onetime friend, Barack Obama.  But last week, prosecutors threw a curveball, telling the judge …

John McCain's war, Howard Dean's war  —  For Howard Dean, the Democratic National Committee chairman who launched his own campaign for president five years ago on the wings of a nascent anti-war movement, the sixth year of the war in Iraq offers fertile ground for his party's 2008 campaign.
Gallup Daily: Clinton and Obama Remain Tied at 47%  —  Clinton remains slightly ahead of McCain in general election  —  PRINCETON, NJ — Gallup Poll Daily tracking finds that national Democratic voters' preferences for their party's nomination remain evenly split, with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton each receiving 47% support.
Lisa Schiffren / The Corner:
Dylan Does Obama  —  I found this brilliant riff on Bob Dylan's Memphis Blues — The Obama Variations — at the Althouse blog.  She knew she had to share it.  But she felt compelled to apologize for sounding anti-Obama, and pointed out that she considered him first in the flawed field.
