Evening Open Thread

Since we're having the Chris Christie/Rand Paul fight, why not let Chris Christie and Rand Paul join in on the Chris Christie/Rand Paul fight?

Interesting, Christie makes an argument similar to the one that Chris just made: Casting his support of Bushian foreign policy as sticking by bedrock conservative principles, casting Rand Paul as the RINO squish.

I don't think the nomination will be won or lost on foreign policy, except if anyone attempts too extreme a position (Ron Paul isolationism or Bomb-Bomb-Iran John McCain Gonzo Interventionism), which almost certainly will not happen. Mostly I think people will just distort what the other guys are saying to make it sound Dumb and Dangerous without clearly articulating their own actual vision of foreign policy in a form specific enough to be critiqued (and lose votes).

So pretty much like they're doing now. The real war will not be over war but over government.

A black female Democrat calls the NAACP's response to the Rodeo Clown (he should be investigated by the Secret Service) "ridiculous," and, I can't believe this, is honest enough to say she (and all other liberals) loved seeing George Bush decapitated on Game of Thrones.

How quickly people can arrive at the truth when they're actually speaking the truth. Extraordinary.

Bono, who used to be a rock star until he began a new career of showing up at random places and giving speeches about grain yields, and the Economist, a magazine dedicated to the proposition that boringness is next to godliness, both acknowledge capitalism's potent power to raise people up from want and need to some kind of material satisfaction. I think, given the Economist's rather leftish bent, I'm more surprised they've come to this conclusion than I am that Bono has.

Dana Loesch recounts her home state of Missouri's troubling history of "Getting in the Faces" of Obama's critics.

And, from @rdbrewer4, Baby Polar Bear:

Update: FAKE! It's just a toy you can make with a pattern from Etsy.

And, lastly: A guy named Glenn Martin is not building flying cars, which makes him kind of a dick, but he is trying to make the next best thing: personal jetpacks.

Although he'd hoped for a civilian commercial model soon, they've decided to do a rescue/firefighter model, and then later try the commercial market.

It will set you back $100,000, probably, if it comes out at all.

But it will be worth it. Now look, you Morons, you have to imagine a person in the jetpack to get the full effect:
