WILLisms.com June 2008 Book of the Month (certified classy):
The WILLisms.com Gift Shop:
This Week's Carnival of Revolutions:
Carnival Home Base:
Classiness, All Around Us.
In no particular order, WILLisms.com presents classiness from the blogosphere:
The proliferation of dubious election observing organizations is not a coincidence, nor is it new. Governments in the region benefit from having a menu of statements from which to choose the most glowing report card.
LaShawn Barber takes on the issue of Life:
Despite liberals’ lament that the rule of law is being trampled on, an unjust law is no law at all. A law that deprives the innocent of life should be no more enforceable than one legalizing human bondage.
Tim Blair comments on Vietnam obsession at the BBC.
Captain's Quarters offers a look at Ayman Nour, the face of Egypt's democratic opposition to Hosni Mubarak. He also looks at how Mubarak is trying to stifle Nour through corrupt courts:
I suspect the move will backfire on Mubarak in the end. After decades of strongman rule, dissident groups in Egypt have been poorly organized and fractured into hostile factions. With Mubarak targeting Nour so openly, he risks creating a central figure around which this fractured dissent will coalesce. Nour's persecution may well unite the Egyptian opposition, creating both a martyr and a rallying figure while remaining in the race against his oppressor.
Chrenkoff notes this poll out of Iraq:
"Are you in favor of implementing Islamic Sharia and an Islamic government? Yes - 12.5% No - 83.9% Dont Know - 3.6%
Social Security Choice asks: "Would Social Security be legal if it were sold by a private company?"
If any private investment or insurance company were to market a plan with the same specifications and terms as Social Security, the FTC would shut them down so fast, their heads would spin on the way to prison for the dozens of types of fraud that we routinely accept when they are done by our high and mighty rulers in DC.
SCOTUS blog notes 3 reversals of the infamous 9th U.S. Circuit Court by the Supreme Court, also noting Rehnquist's comeback:
The Chief Justice, who returned to the bench on Monday for the first time since October, announced his opinion in the Mena case.
The Political Calculations blog offers this neat online tool for "Calculating Election Accuracy" (or inaccuracy, as the case may be).
John Hawkins looks at "The Idea Gap" between conservatives and liberals:
...the American public, after hearing the same tired shtick from the left year after year & gaining access to more sources of information that don't always toe the liberal line, has wised up to the tricks & spin.
WILLisms.com offers a classiness roundup as a weekly feature, every Tuesday, with 10 posts deemed classy. If you would like to nominate a post on your blog or another blog for inclusion, email us at WILLisms@gmail.com. Write "Classy Nomination" in the subject.
At some point in the future, we're also going to introduce a roundup of lameness, which will provide examples of shrill, angry, extremist, anti-American, self-loathing, intentionally misleading, and other unclassy posts from leftist blogs (and even right-wing blogs, if it is bad enough). Again, email us at WILLisms@gmail.com to submit nominations.
