The group of 11 signatories all came together to tell Senate Republicans their view of the role of government in the proposed Time Warner Cable/Comcast deal. They raise good points, and come to the correct conclusion that government needs to get out of the way.

Weekly GOP address: Ken Cuccinelli (R CAND, Virginia-GOV).
I’m not going to mince words: you need to go and support Ken Cuccinelli. I don’t think that the third party polling we’re seeing is accurate – Virginia, historically, does not reward third parties with that level of support – but I do think that Terry McAuliffe is probably ahead, and McAuliffe is certainly acting as if he’s got the momentum.

Tech at Night: The Grand Return
So I’ve been gone a while. Sorry about that. After Summer Games Done Quick and the Redstate Gathering, I was supposed to be back in action. But a case of the shingles took me down fast. I was a sleepless zombie in pain for a week. No fun. Was actually alright on Friday, but I had so much reading to do I couldn’t catch up in time to post on Friday, so here we are. Hang on.

Tech at Night: More on the Playstation 4. Kids don’t belong on the Internet.
Heh, the Playstation 4 is pro-used games and cheaper, right? Not so fast. The PS4 simply didn’t include the Eye and will let publishers restrict used games after all. Told you EA didn’t stop online passes because they were suddenly fine with used games.
Kids don’t belong on the Internet, because predators are out there. Even if your kid is high school aged, Be careful!

McClatchy circles back to #benghazi, and the lies about the video.
McClatchy (!) has decided to get in on the Benghazi dogpile, probably because, hey, no line for this one*! Lost in the controversy over who requested revisions of CIA-written talking points on September’s attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans is one key fact: In every iteration of the document, the CIA asserted that a video protest preceded the assaults, and no official reviewing | Read More »

Obama says our founder’s system ‘constrains’ him
