This headline startled me quite a bit.

Eating Their Own: Conservative Editor Calls For Ouster Of Grover Norquist From Conservative Movement

The article told me some things I didn't know about Norquist. Apparently, "Norquist supports GOProud, a gay conservative group, and helped found the Islamic Free Market Institute. As a result of these connections, Norquist is being labeled as “pro-perversion” and “pro-Islamist".

Perhaps Norquist isn't quite the puppet-master I thought. How in the world does this party expect to win the hearts of the American populace? No question that the 33 percenters will cheer loudly for whicheever candidate they mange to settle on, but is there any chance that the rest of the country is going to stay home on election day? I don't think so.

Should public radio program in the public interest?

NPR is supposed to be our national public radio, but they're barely covering climate issues that are in the public's interest.

Only one month ago, a national New York Times/CBS News poll found that half of all Americans think that global warming is already having a serious impact. Sixty percent of those surveyed even said that protecting our environment should be a priority “even at the risk of curbing economic growth.”
