Bill Whittle, Truth Revolt: Bush Lite
Video. [rdbrewer]

Video: Many scientists still regard Pluto as a planet
Not everybody is buying into Neil Tyson's "we gotta make the public think about what a planet is" grandstanding. Via @Smithsonian. [rdbrewer]

Mollie Hemingway: The View From Hell: Nicolle Wallace And Hostility To Conservative Women
"Her behavior of simultaneously serving as Sarah Palin’s aide while dishonestly sabotaging her to a gleeful liberal media was so disloyal, self-aggrandizing and despicable that I decided to write her name down so I would remember to be wary of anyone who ever hired her." Added: I did the same thing with Steve Schmidt, but I didn't think anyone would ever hire a guy again who trashed his client. Guess who did. [rdbrewer]

Allahpundit: Boehner: You know what would help our economy? Immigration reform
That sure would help the American worker. Wages and the number of available jobs would go up instantly. All we have to do is legalize a bunch of foreigners. [rdbrewer]

Erick Erickson: GDIAF NRSC
"The NRSC and its establishment hacks, consultants, and outside groups have spent the better part of year attacking the ethics of outside conservative groups, attacking conservative activists as racists and bigots, attacking vendors who dare help conservative groups and anti-establishment candidates, and doing everything they can to defend their status quo in an incumbent protection racket. And now they find themselves short of funds in the general election." I won't give them a fucking penny either. Via commenter "artisanal 'ette." [rdbrewer]

Neil Munro: Rove: GOP Establishment Can’t Win Senate Alone
"The apparent lack of donations comes after Rove’s business allies spent two years — and likely, hundreds of millions of dollars –pushing Congress to pass a very unpopular bill that would have amnestied at least 11 million illegals, and doubled the current annual inflow of 1 million low-wage immigrants and 700,000 guest-workers." Reminder: Don't give Rove or any of his groups a dime. Choose your own candidates. Also from TheDC: Watchdog Asks IRS To Probe Alleged Sierra Club Profiteering Off Its Tax Exempt Status [rdbrewer]
Feminists [dri]
Everyone Hates Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Including Obama
So there's one thing you have in common
Pro-Scots Independence Group Releases World's First Political Ad in the Form of... A Palindrome
Just keep watchin' it (video a bit down the page)... you'll see what I mean. I don't know if this is clever or stupid. Fine line, you know.

‘Interceptor’ cellphone towers found near White House, Senate
Looks like something will get done about that now, huh? [rdbrewer]
Judicial Watch: Feds in El Paso: Rep. O’Rourke Called to Ban Contact with Judicial Watch
Via Drudge. "On August 29 JW reported that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is working in Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle borne improvised explosive devices." [rdbrewer]
Yahoo Finance: Fed and TWTR Overvaluation, Evidence of Looming Market Crash: Stockman
"'I’m worried… that we’ve got the greatest bubble created by a central bank in human history,' he told Yahoo Finance." [rdbrewer]
Sean Connery, the Most Prominent Proponent of Scottish Independence Apart from William Wallace, Won't Be Visiting the Homeland to Campaign for the Cause, Due to Tax Consequences
He can only spend 90 days in Scotland per year or else suffer the high Scottish tax rate... if "Yes" fails due to the absence of Connery, it would be a sort of Socialist Own Goal, wouldn't it?
Internet Guy Identifies (He Thinks) Three Suspects in a Gay-Bashing Hate Crime, Via Searches of Who Checked In To a Nearby Restaurant Near the Time of the Crime
Takeaways: 1, People secretly want to be vigilantes, because Vigilantes Are Awesome; 2, Social media is frightening in how much information it's collecting on you at all times
Study: Your Brain Keeps Making Fairly High-Level Rational Decisions Even When You're Asleep
Subjects were asked to push the right button for real words ("hammer") and the left button for fake words ("fabu") and then allowed to fall asleep while the experimenter continued reading out real and fake words... while asleep, their left hemisphere lit up for real words (indicating preparation to push the right button) and the right one lit up for fake ones... not earth shattering, but kind of interesting
Andrew Klavan, Truth Revolt: Is ISIS Islamic?
Video. [rdbrewer]

Obama Plans to Tightly Control Strikes on Syria
"And I'm gonna think I'm a better general than my generals," he explained. As several people pointed out on twitter yesterday, why not? It worked so well for LBJ. Added: More from Jim Geraghty. [rdbrewer]

J. Christian Adams, PJM: ‘CATALIST’: Obama’s Database for Fundamentally Transforming America
"The Democrats and the institutional left have a new political tool that allows them virtually to ignore moderates yet still win elections. This tool, the Catalist database, was employed in the 2012 election. That election defied conventional wisdom: Mitt Romney sought and won independent voters overwhelmingly, but still lost." Via @EdDriscoll. [rdbrewer]

Apple will no longer unlock most iPhones, iPads for police, even with search warrants
"[T]aking a hard new line as tech companies attempt to blunt allegations that they have too readily participated in government efforts to collect user information." Apple is about to make this Apple hater fall in love with them. Via @TheH2. [rdbrewer]

Sean Davis: Why Is Wikipedia Deleting All References To Neil Tyson’s Fabrication?
"Judging by many of the responses to the three pieces I wrote detailing Neil Tyson’s history of fabricating quotes and embellishing stories (part 1, part 2, and part 3), you’d think I had defamed somebody’s god.... Which brings us to Wikipedia." Via @Slublog. [rdbrewer]

Australia raids over 'Islamic State plot to behead'
"Police have carried out anti-terror raids in Sydney sparked by intelligence reports that Islamic extremists were planning random killings in Australia." [rdbrewer]

Watch EsotericCD totally DESTROY the claim that money doesn’t drive science
It's Moron "Jeff B." [rdbrewer]

SteynOnline: 'The Barbra Streisand Effect on Steroids'
" It's never a smart move to launch an ask-me-anything! session by threatening to report anyone who takes the offer seriously. The ensuing comedy added greatly to the gaiety of life." Via @TheH2. [rdbrewer]

Hashtag backfire: Mock-a-lanche triggered after global warming alarmist suing Mark Steyn solicits questions
This is funny. Worth a read. [rdbrewer]
