IPCCgate — Deliberate Alarmism?

(Originally posted by my husband on NRO - The Corner)
Richard North provides some very strong arguments that the inclusion of "dodgy" research in the Working Group II report of the IPCC on the impacts of global warming was deliberate and that the attempts to distract from this amount to little more than 'shroud waving.' To my mind this is a far more important indictment of the IPCC than the initial Climategate revelations.

In today's Morning Jolt, Jim Geraghty reviews some of the responses to Joe Biden's assertion that Iraq is one of the great achievements of the Obama administration.

Most of the commentators, including Rush, are astounded. But relatively speaking, the administration's achievement is no more astounding than Bull Connor's passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Kruschev's reunification of Germany, or Jefferson Davis's preservation of the Union.

Consequently, a bit of perspective is in order.

Kennedy won't seek re-election, marking end of era
Rep. Patrick Kennedy's decision not to seek re-election will leave Washington without a Kennedy in political office for the first time in more than 60 years.

The Rhode Island Democrat's term ends early next year but he says in a television message viewed by The Associated Press on Thursday that his life is "taking a new direction" and he will not seek a ninth term. The video was provided to the AP by Kennedy's congressional office.
Nine terms as a US Representative is 18 years. Since the man is only 42, that means he's been in office since he was 24 and clearly has NEVER held a REAL job. Good riddance. We need people who've truly worked for a living, not rich-kid dilettantes living off their ancestors' legacies.

Plus, clearly the nut doesn't fall far from the tree.
He has been in and out of treatment for substance abuse since crashing his car outside the U.S Capitol in 2006. Still, he has been comfortably re-elected twice since then, after making mental health care his signature issue in Washington.
At least when he crashed his car, he didn't kill a woman at the same time. So that's a step up from his father.

It's The Economy, Stupid

Poll Shows Eroding Support for Health Reform
While half of Americans want some kind of health reform in the next two years, nearly 40 percent say it would be a good thing if the legislation proposed by the Democrats and President Barack Obama never materializes. And one-quarter aren't sure if health reform would be good or bad for the country, a new Harris Interactive/HealthDay poll finds.

"Essentially what they're saying is we want reform but we don't trust or like what we're seeing now," said Humphrey Taylor, chairman of The Harris Poll, a service of Harris Interactive.

While reforming health care is still important for many Americans, the most pressing issue is fixing the troubled economy, the poll found.

When asked to pick two top priorities for the President and Congress, about 8 out of 10 of respondents, regardless of their political persuasion, picked reducing unemployment and creating new jobs as a top priority over the next few months. Among Democrats, health reform came next (59 percent), while among Republicans preventing a terrorist attack in the United States (64 percent) took second place.
Reform could have started a year ago with a few simple changes (interstate purchasing, tort reform, etc.), but nooooo, the liberals wanted to make a massive power grab because they misinterpreted the election as a mandate for free-wheeling corruption and power. They forgot that, thanks to journalists epically failing at their job of reporting, the American people had to take Obama at his word when he said he was going to listen to everyone, be "bi-partisan", and make nice.

Stinkin' lying politicians, lazy, enraptured journalists, and one year later, the American people are angry, very angry. We can forgive a lot but not being lied to and demeans. Americans are smart, savvy people. We are friendly and trusting but that does not make us stupid. Pols and journos better wise up and start doing their jobs honestly and fairly or they are going to be joining the unemployed ranks sooner rather than later.

Mr. Davis Follows His Own Rules

Shani Davis does things his way

I always admire people who are comfortable with themselves enough to do follow their own pursuits regardless of the expectations others have of them. Sometimes this means I admire someone whose behavior I do not necessarily approve but there it is.

But no one could seriously disapprove of Shani Davis who is an African-American Olympic Speed Skater who shuns the press and just wants to skate. He does what he wants the way he wants with a great deal of class and elegance. I hope he wins all the medals he wants too!
At the World Cup meet in Heerenveen last November, Davis knew one of his most ardent supporters was celebrating a birthday. So, after winning a race, he walked over to give the fan a most unexpected present.

“He took off his medal and said, ‘That’s for you.’” Wicher Soek recalled recently in a telephone interview. “It totally swept me off my feet.”

Soek has been following Davis for years and has always loved his struggle against the odds - an African-American from the south side of Chicago growing up to become a world-class speedskater - as much as his sublime skating style.

“He is total elegance,” Soek said. “Just look the way he holds his hand on his back. No other skater does it like him.”

In Europe, they see a winning personality who just doesn’t know how to score points in the United States.

“It is the simplicity of the man,” Soek said. “He looks you up after the race, always for a chat.”

Bakker still remembers a night after a big race when Kleintje Pils was playing at a hotel close to the oval. Suddenly, he saw Davis in the crowd.

“He hung the big sousaphone around his neck, and he was all laughs,” Bakker said. “And the next day, he wins a race.”

For the Dutch, it’s a total mystery why Davis is not a hot marketing property in the U.S. The small Dutch advertising agency BKB was pleasantly surprised to find out in December that parts of Davis’ suit were still available for sponsorship.

His Dutch manager, Wietze Jongsma, knows that conventional wisdom means little to Davis. In the run-up to Vancouver, he was approached to appear on Oprah Winfrey’s blockbuster show and a children’s program in the Netherlands.

Guess which one he picked?

Yep, the children got the nod over Oprah’s couch.

In effect, the letter says there is no independent authority that can investigate any decision by the department to stonewall congressional inquiries. If the department refuses to answer congressional questions by asserting legal privileges that have never been recognized in U.S. history, the IG is powerless to assess allegations of certain sorts of departmental misconduct.” They told me if I voted for McCain we’d have a rogue Justice Department that worried about politics more than law.
