Irony is the enemy of the post-modern left(tm)
The French foreign minister, citing that you can’t argue with results, now endorses the Israeli wall. Amazing.
It’s actually nice of the court to do this pre-election, as Ace notes.
Mark Steyn got interviewed on video by Michelle Malkin. Very nice.
If you still can’t get enough Steyn after that, he was on C-SPAN for 45 minutes again the other day. Details and stream here.
Some nice detective work by bloggers on this one.
Frank J. illustrates what will happen if the Dems get control.
Michael Yon has a great piece in the Weekly Standard about how one man at the Pentagon has basically shut down independent reporting from Iraq in favor of the Baghdad-based “bomb of the day” stories.
Sam’s costume shopping.
Except that none of the plans are actually particularly surprising.

Check this out.

Democrats are opening their mouths and people are listening – the polls have reversed direction in ways that Howard Dean won’t enjoy.
Google is getting into politics officially. The company founders and 98% of employees are MoveOn.org members, to give some context…
This week’s Gregg Easterbrook NFL roundup includes a plug for the awesome Friday Night Lights TV series. FWIW, neither the movie nor the series are “about bashing football”. The book, while a classic example of what Jonah Goldberg calls “the exotic travelogue style” frequently employed by media elites in flyover country, also is not about bashing football, although it does smack around the residents of Odessa, TX quite a bit.
UPDATE: and here’s this week’s reader feedback, which includes references to Iran and Israel. Really.

Damon’s unimpressed with the MSM.

Actress Jane Wyatt, known among other things as Mr. Spock’s mother Amanda, has died at the age of 96.
Flags of our Fathers was written by an International ANSWER commie, although it’s somewhat more nuanced than you’d expect from that origin. Karl has a no-spoiler review (wait, you can spoiler World War 2?)
They’re going right for Bush=Hitler on air as fact. Very nice.
The diplomat who was on al-Jizz is now apologizing but al-Reuters is already trumpeting his original words.
Is Hillary doomed if the Dems win this fall? Here’s one reason.
