Valor stealing – I think he’ll probably have to resign, even given a double standard that excuses liberals of many things that conservatives don’t get excused for. Is Brian Williams a liberal? Yeah, inasmuch as he’s a feature in that milieu. http://althouse.blogspot.com/2015/02/brian-williams-lied-and-hes-still-lying.html To be charitable, I think this can probably be explained by something less than a sort of sociopathy. It is a story that took on a life of its own early on, and it’s not clear Williams was the source. He does seem to have found himself obligated to repeat it over the years. Update: maybe not, this is a bit extravagant: http://hotair.com/archives/2015/02/05/brian-williams-2013-i-thought-i-was-going-to-die-when-my-chopper-was-fired-on/

But a false equivalence also I’d say. Here’s the serious critique. http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/397992/still-more-president-obamas-moral-equivalence-victor-davis-hanson
I think it might be. http://time.com/3695448/rand-paul-libertarianism-political-breakout/ Meaning, Rand is going to be one of the last 2-3 guys standing for the R nomination. It’s not obvious he’s going to win it, but that’s still a breakout.
Government is just the things we do together and if you don’t like it you should just go live in Somalia chortle chortle…: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/02/03/former-obama-adviser-should-tax-fat-people-by-body-weight/?cmpid=cmty_twitter_fn This would be conservative outrage du jour if not for Brian Williams. Carrots and sticks and nudge-ocracies perhaps have their place in special circumstances, but liberal ideology is hopelessly flawed re its lack of a limiting principle.
