My Endorsement This Year: Rick Santorum 2012
If you watch politics long enough, you’ll see a moment where the tragedy of a losing campaign gets so bad that you actually stop and laugh. It was the “Taliban Dan” ad back in 2010 that convinced me that Alan Grayson was off to his next stop on his professional career. Examples of this have abounded in the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary. Who can forget | Read More »
Give My Children The Lightning Again (Part 2 of 3): Mitt Romney on Energy and The Environment
When Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle coauthored the dystopic novel Lucifer’s Hammer, they focused heavily on issues of resource management.

The Green Newt Must Quickly Go Extinct
