Lame Stream Media?


The comments make more sense than the original blog post. (H/T, Jonah Goldberg)

UPDATE—Charles C. W. Cooke properly fisks Mr. Budowsky’s screed. He concludes:

It is legitimate, if unsound, to argue, as Woodrow Wilson did, that the Constitution is a stumbling block to what “needs” to be done by government and should be replaced or “made a blank paper by construction” — but it is almost impossible to make the case that the government needing free reign is consistent with the Constitution. Put simply, it’s not. Ultimately, one has to pick a side: You’re either for limited, constitutional government in a society in which legal arguments play a significant role, or you’re for unchecked government power in a wholly political society. But you can’t be for both. And as Budowsky defly proves, to try and be so inevitably leads to one beclowning oneself.

The War Against Who?


Sarah A. Hoyt has an excellent post up on the war against women men. (H/T, Instapundit)

If this is war it is war on men.  And I’ve had just about enough of everyone who claims otherwise.

UPDATE—Dr. Helen notes that “Testosterone is why we don’t live in caves”. The comment section is quite good.

UPDATE 2—In reply to the Grammar Nazis, yes, I am aware that the objective case is whom instead of who. Mea culpa.

UPDATE 3—Andrew Klavan asks “Is There A War On Women?”, and answers that “there has been an ongoing and wickedly offhanded war against men for the past forty years at least.” He adds:

As women have entered positions of power, equaled men in earnings, and outstripped men in education, men have begun to fight back against this ongoing assault. In doing so, they have begun to treat women  — well, as roughly as they treat one another. The insults are different because the genders are different — in much the same way I will call a woman “sweetheart,” when I would call a man “pal” — but the feeling behind them is largely the same. Peggy Noonan calls this “the coarsening of discourse in public life.” But that’s generally a complaint made by those who want to dish it out but can’t take it. To paraphrase Shakespeare, men have been called dogs for decades, now women have to beware their fangs.
