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:

“We Were All Appalled By the Bush Years”  —  Thus a neighbor of retired State Department intelligence analyst Walter Kendall Myers and his wife, Gwendolyn, on the “frustration with U.S. policies” shared by all right-thinking people in the upper-Northwest D.C. bastion of liberalism in which they reside.

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.

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 …
