Some Call It A Bonfire (Or Carnival) Of Classiness...

We call it "Classiness, All Around Us."

Click to explore more WILLisms.com.

In no particular order, WILLisms.com presents classiness from the blogosphere:


Patrick Ruffini's blog, always unique, offers George W. Bush's iPod playlist, plus this wisdom:

Advice to candidates: Forget blogging. Forget podcasting. If you want folks to know what you're made of, post your playlist.


The Becker-Posner Blog (Gary Becker and Richard Posner) has a decent debate on the Sexual Revolution.


To the extent that as a result of economic and technological change, sex ceases to be considered either dangerous or important, we can expect it to become a morally indifferent activity, as eating has mainly become (though not for orthodox Jews and Muslims). At this writing, that seems to be the trend in many societies, including our own. This is not historically unprecedented; many cultures have been far more casual about sex than our own—ancient Greece, for example.


I disagree with Posner that sex will become, either morally or in other ways, just another consumer activity, like eating. Sexual intercourse is a very intimate relation between two people that grew as humans evolved during the past 50,000 years when they apparently began to separate into families. This relation carries a lot of emotional attachment and baggage that will not vanish simply because contraceptives are effective and birth rates are low.


Kirk H. Sowell, of the Window on the Arab World, and More! blog (and cross-posted at Publius Pundit), revisits the idea of democracy in Egypt:

The Journal article also noted that the U.S. State Department has vociferously resisted not only the funding of democracy groups, but it has also opposed even reducing Egypt's $2 billion/year subsidy or conditioning it on any reform. This shows that State has learned absolutely nothing from the events of the past four years. I used to take the same position, but it has become very clear that U.S. support for Egypt and Saudi Arabia is pouring kerosine on the flames of anti-Americanism in the region (which I consider inevitable to an extent). It was in part because of this kind of cluelessness that I decided not to take the Foreign Service Exam, which is required to work for the State Department. I can make better use of my language skills blogging.


Outside The Beltway blog notes this Washington Post story and asks "Is the Cover-Up Worse than the Crime?"

...contrary to the post-Watergate wisdom, politicians may now be better off covering up their misdeeds rather than coming clean.


Fishkite blog looks at the "timeline of the true smear" in the Schiavo memo controversy.


The Daly Thoughts blog looks at "OHIO'S NOT-SO-ODD NUMBERS" in the 2004 campaign.


Michelle Malkin looks at the "UNHINGED LIBERAL PRODUCTS FOR SALE," noting:

Welcome to the sick world of the pro-assassination Left.


Powerline wonders, regarding "Code Pink" protesters: "WHOSE SIDE ARE THEY ON?"


...as annoyed as I am by these protesters, the Democrats should be apoplectic. This is exactly the kind of publicity they don't need, especially in a context where they are taking a position that many construe as hostile or indifferent toward American interests. If I were running the Democratic Party, I'd do everything in my power to keep Code Pink off the evening news.


Chrenkoff points out this bizarre theory, propagated by Germany's highest-ranking female member of parliament:

...the US government set the Catholic pedophilia scandal in motion because it wanted to weaken an already frail pope. That's also why it made Poland its chief partner in the Iraq war: to make the Vatican look bad.


Gateway Pundit notes the torture of Mugabe's opposition in Zimbabwe.

And don't forget to check out the classy WILLisms.com Featured Posts on the left-hand sidebar, plus all the great Trivia Tidbits of the Day, "Charlie Rangel, Theologian," and "Robert Byrd's Vanity."

I was just over at #5.fishkite,
Timeline of the true smere! That is a really good guy! I can't believe he had someone call him up and attack him over the phone. What is really funny is that his caller ID got his phone# and Fishkite posted it! I just think that is so funny....
