Ed Whelan / Bench Memos:
Exposing an Irresponsible Anonymous Blogger  —  One bane of the Internet is the anonymous blogger who abuses his anonymity to engage in irresponsible attacks.  One such blogger who has been biting at my ankles in recent months is the fellow who calls himself “publius” at the Obsidian Wings blog.
Ed Whelan / The Corner:
Re: Exposing an Irresponsible Anonymous Blogger  —  Before returning to more important matters, let me offer a few thoughts on the mini-firestorm that my exposing of the blogger “publius” seems to have generated: 1.  Law professor John Blevins (aka publius) and others seem to assume that I owed …
Publius / Obsidian Wings:
Stay Classy Ed Whelan  —  So there you have it - I've been officially outed by Ed Whelan.  I would never have done that to my harshest critic in a million years, but oh well.  —  And to be clear - the proximate cause was that Whelan got mad that I criticized him in a blog post.

Associated Press:
France gets its Obama moment  —  PARIS (AP) — People gawked and cameras clicked as the Obamas cut a wide figure through the French capital even while confined to a presidential motorcade.  It was more personal for the few kept not so distant — the restaurant owner who “saw God,” the chauffeur reveling in a “magnificent mission.”
Andy McCarthy / The Corner:
Obamanomics: How Stupid Do They Think We Are?  —  Pretty stupid.  Watching Fox News Sunday, I caught a panel on which Obama economic advisor Austin Goolsbee conceded that the administration had previously predicted unemployment would top out at around 8%, that it was now up to 9.4% …

Thomas L. Friedman / New York Times:
After Cairo, It's Clinton Time  —  It's hard to know whether to laugh or cry after reading the reactions of analysts and officials in the Middle East to President Obama's Cairo speech.  “It's not what he says, but what he does,” many said.  No, ladies and gentlemen of the Middle East, it is what he says and what you do and what we do.

Ed Morrissey / Hot Air:
White House food tasters?  —  In medieval times, royal courts employed food tasters to ensure that the kitchen staff hadn't conspired to commit a coup d'etat through poison.  The practice continued for heads of state until modern times, and also for novels and Hollywood movies.
