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.

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% …

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 …
