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.

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.
Steve Benen / Washington Monthly:
CLASS ACT, ALL THE WAY.... On Friday, publius — Hilzoy's Obsidian Wings co-blogger and someone I've known for several years — had a blog post criticizing something National Review's Ed Whelan wrote.  As blog criticisms go, the piece was acerbic but hardly outrageous — Whelan made an observation …

James Joyner / Outside The Beltway:
Outing  —  National Review's Ed Whelan has outed The Blogger Formerly Known as Publius, revealing his name and employer despite being informed by TBFKAP that he had a “variety of private, family, and professional reasons” for wishing to keep his identity private.
Discussion: Instapundit and Riehl World View
A.L. / The Anonymous Liberal:
Ed Whelan Completes His Descent into Hackery  —  I've been debating all day whether or not to respond to this act of astounding immaturity and intellectual cowardice.  On the one hand, this “outing” hits pretty close to home.  In addition to being a long time reader and admirer of Publius' writing …
Jennifer Parker / George's Bottom Line:
Clinton: Obama Has Passed ‘3a.m.’ Test  —  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said President Barack Obama has “absolutely” answered questions she posed during the Democratic campaign about his lack of experience and ability to handle an international crisis.

Washington Post:
The Settlement Rift  —  President Obama has delivered a necessary shock to Israel's right-wing government.  Will he now compromise?  —  IN THE WEEKS before President Obama's Cairo address to the Muslim world, his administration opened a striking public breach with the Israeli government of Binyamin Netanyahu.

Discussion: TalkLeft and Informed Comment
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% …
Amie Parnes / The Politico:
Dems express ‘growing concern’  —  House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer and Reps. Chris Van Hollen and Daniel Maffei have circulated this letter today ...  ... to Obama expressing “growing concern” with the closures of GM and Chrysler dealerships across the country.

Victor Davis Hanson / Pajamas Media:
The Reckoning  —  Obama Versus the Way of the Universe  —  I wish the President well, but he is butting up against human nature.  And that is a fight one cannot win.  If one runs up nearly a $2 trillion annual deficit, and then persists in such red-ink to the point of adding another $9 trillion …
William Kates / Associated Press:
Palin helps NY town celebrate Alaska anniversary  —  AUBURN, N.Y. (AP) — Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin set aside politics only briefly Saturday to help Auburn officials celebrate their inaugural Founder's Day and raise money for a museum honoring William Seward, the 19th-century U.S. secretary …

Peter Bradshaw / Guardian:
Tunnel frauds leave Gazans ruined  —  For years, a network of underground smugglers' routes from Egypt to the Gaza Strip has supplied a besieged population with everything from cement to cattle.  But now a series of major scams has destroyed the dreams of desperate investors who saw the tunnels as a path out of poverty
