I’m looking over their “fact check” of Palin’s speech. It’s unfortunate they allowed this line to be published, since it’s way more sympathetic than it ought to be:
Palin’s accusation that Obama hasn’t authored “a single major law or even a reform” in the U.S. Senate or the Illinois Senate is simply not a fair assessment. Obama has helped push through major ethics reforms in both bodies, for example.“For example”?! Why not name one? For one thing, “pushing” legislation is usually an empty claim. Show me the PR drive Obama led on ethics reform on the federal level, or bills that weren’t coopted from other state legislators. For another, Obama *hasn’t* authored a single major law or reform. Even if he *had* pushed someone else’s bill, saying that Palin’s wrong in saying what she said is dishonest.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
