Open Thread, For Anything Except Open Borders

Kill amnesty; check.

Kill the single-minded fixation on killing amnesty. I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to being able to write about anything else.

Here's one on the Global Warming Cult.

Here's a shock: The New York Times is now in the business of flat-out lying. Praytell, will the "Fairness" Doctrine extend to the New York Times? First read the Times piece about the documentary Indoctrinate U., and the "nuanced" (yes, it's in the headline) view schools take towards suppressing speech.

Then read Mahoney's response. It's pretty devastating. It's not that Mahoney has the better of the argument; that's almost a given. It's that the Times flagrantly misreported key facts to even have an argument at all.

Video of Iranian gas "protests."

Fired Durham investigator Linwood Wilson turns on Nifong, apparently seeking to forestall any criminal charges against himself by ratting out Nifong:

In an interview with the H-S, Wilson claims that shortly after the interview, he told Nifong, "You need to get rid of this piece of crap [the lacrosse case] as fast as you can. [Mangum] has told me an unbelievable story. She is not credible. She is volunteering for a polygraph, and we need to do it." In his Bar deposition, Wilson also claimed to have asked Nifong to give Mangum a lie detector test, but Nifong refused, remarking, "I don't polygraph victims, especially sexual assault victims . . . and make those victims think that I don't trust them or believe them."

Via Newsbusters, Instapundit on the emerging power of the blogosphere in politics. One word executive summary: Money. Something we on the right haven't been as diligent about. Every week Harry Reid sets aside an hour to let Markos dip his sac in his gob, but we on the right had to engage in a month-long primal scream to be heard at all. Reason? They raise money proficiently, we don't. Yet.

As I've remarked before, the dextrosphere has always had a core mission of influencing, or even somewhat displacing, the media. Turns out this is a very difficult thing to do. You know what's apparently far easier? Hijacking a political party.

I'm all about the path of least resistance.

I haven't bothered following the Cheney thing. I was suprised to find out he was a member of the legislative branch, I admit, but then, Cheney contains Great Mysteries unfathomable to mortal minds. From the Corner, this Beldar piece defending Cheney's legal position better than Cheney's legal team does.

The shocks continue as the MSM gives biased headlines to a SC decision striking down an entirely race-based forced-busing plan, and the LAT goes AP one better by deliberately omitting a key finding of Roberts from the AP story they ran in order to hide from its readers that Roberts' opinion was actually far more reasonable than they wished it to seem. Yup-- ran an already slanted AP story, edited the story to make it more biased. Your LAT in action.
