Commenting on National Review’s parting of ways with John Derbyshire and Robert Weissberg over their “racially offensive commentary,” the New Republic’s Timothy Noah quips, “By the logic of newsmagazine trend-spotting, one more transgressor at National Review will give us a trend.”
If Noah were to widen his reading he might learn we already have a trend. Here’s a worthy candidate from another New York publication, New York magazine itself, and its star political writer John Heilemann, in his piece on Romney’s possible veep choices:
Which brings us to the other odds-on favorite: Ohio senator Rob Portman.… He is solid and stolid, bland and boring, and as egregiously Caucasian as a potful of Uncle Ben’s.
I really can’t add to that. Perhaps Senator Portman should simply rip his skin off.

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

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?
