Random Stuff...

...from our daily blog scan.

James Taranto suggests "responsible governance" may be the one thing that could turn around the Democrats' chances in two weeks. This suggestion is lost in the vacuousness of the Internet as the pounding MSM focus (actually advanced excuse-making) is on PR, or racism, or 'not explaining the policies better', or bitter clingers, or, or, or. James suggests an imaginary conversation that sums up the national electoral mood quite well. WSJ: Public Radio vs. The Public.

Americans: "So, the economy is pretty bad and there's high employment. You think you can do something about that?"
Democrats and Obama: "We can spend a trillion dollars we don't have on pork and stuff."
Americans: "No . . . that's not what we want. We'd really like you not to do that."
Democrats: "You're stupid. We're doing it anyway."
Americans: "That's not going to help us get jobs!"
Democrats: "Sure it will; millions of them … though they may be invisible. You'll have to trust us they exist. And guess what else we'll do: We'll create a giant new government program to take over health care."
Americans: "That has nothing to do with jobs!"
Democrats: "We don't care about that anymore. We really want a giant new health care program. We're sure you'll love it."
Americans: "Don't pass that bill. You hear me? Absolutely do not pass that bill."
Democrats: "Believe me; you'll love it. It has … well, I don't know what exactly is in the bill, but we're sure it's great."
Americans: "Listen to me: DO. NOT. PASS. THAT. BILL."
Democrats: "You're not the boss of me! We're doing it anyway!"

Juan Williams, who we met at the GOP Convention in 2008, was fired at NPR two days ago for 1st degree truth. (No, he doesn't have a hat.) Fox gave him a contract extension and raise. Ha! Here is a clip with Krauthammer's comments - found at NiceDeb:
