Well, we (tinw) have returned to the States. Just in time, too. Seems as there's an election today. Only problem is because I moved to Illinois a couple of months ago, I'm no longer registered in Missouri. This means that I couldn't vote for Jean Carnahan over the ethically-challenged Social-Security-privatizer Jim Talent. On the other hand, I am now from Illinois, which means that the GOP will get swept out. And no, the election for Governor of Rod Blagojevich against Jim Ryan (R- tried to execute innocents) is not that close, except maybe in some push-pollster's mind.
TAPPED notices that Jonathan Last's "most intellectually dishonest" hatchet job on Democratic tactics in Weekly Standard is eerily similar to one by pompous-ass self-righteous dishonest prig William Bennett's article in the National Review.
So the question is: Does Bill Bennett plagiarize from Jonathan Last, does Last plagiarize from Bennett, or do they both plagiarize from the same source? One thing's for sure, GOP hacks sure do have a problem with intellectual honesty, but then you knew that already.
