On his radio show today on this George Washington's birthday, Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich spent some time comparing President Obama and our first president. Said Huckabee:

"This is a very different president than our first one. George Washington was so adamant that we would not have a king and I thought, 'Well, gosh, we've done pretty well until 2008 and now I thnk we may have ended up with one.' Am I too far off in saying that there's probably never been a greater contrast than George Washington than Barack Obama?"

A good dose of information on Scandinavian socialism and folkways.

    The New York Times reports that some Republicans are trending away from the lock-em-up-and-throw-away-the-key approach to criminal justice embraced by the party's old guard, in part out of a recognition that minority votes matter now more than ever.

Hearing the screams of his men, according to an aide, Washington turned and sobbed "with the tenderness of a child."
  • Easy on the pay raises

    An independent commission appointed by the governor, legislative leaders and the chief justice began work last week to fulfill part of Issue 3, the constitutional amendment that eased term limits, banned lobbyist gifts to legislators (sort of) and provided a mechanism for pay raises.
