I don’t know why Carol Platt Liebau’s blog isn’t somewhere in the stratosphere–“Mortal Human” or at least “Playful Promate” range in the blogosphere…

No matter how well-trafficked her blog is, it’s under-read. Here’s a sample post from yesterday evening. Read it and then check out her front page.

This morning, on Meet the Press, Tim Russert noted as he interviewed Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL):

It’s interesting, because in your own political past, when you were a congressman in the House of Representatives in 1983, you believed that Roe vs. Wade was incorrectly decided. You filled out a questionnaire calling for a constitutional limit to ban all abortions. You wrote a constitute [sic] saying that “The right to an abortion is not guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution.”

Of course, this will make life very interesting if Dick Durbin tries to characterize any postulated pro-life views of John Roberts as “out of the mainstream” — because when Durbin was pro-life, that view was less mainstream than it is today.

In any case, anyone who slanders American soldiers the way Dick Durbin did has no business even pretending to know anything about “mainstream thought” in America. _*_

Other posts that follow include, “She’s Not A Moderate!” and “It’s Not About Being ‘Offended'”—the first about Diane Feinstein and the second about the “nuke Mecca” flap.
Concise, clear, insightful. Go listen.
