Friday link fiesta!

November 21, 2008

Another busy day here at the ranch, folks, but here are a few links to keep you entertained:

Own a gun? Then forget getting a job in the Obama Administration, it seems. Ed Morrissey blogs on the now-infamous Question 59. Since when did exercising one’s constitutional rights become a red line for getting a job?

Speaking of our rights and liberties, the Organization of the Islamic Conference is lobbying the UN to push member states to make criticism of Islam (including any honest discussion of jihad or the Islamic supremacist ideology) a criminal offense. What was that nonsense about free speech? And what does our likely next Attorney General think of this?

Here are two articles by Jonah Goldberg, author of Liberal Fascism, the first saying "been there, done that" to a presidency of experimentation, the other looking askance at the efforts to cast Barack Obama as a latter-day FDR or Lincoln. What is it about liberals that they’re always looking for some sort of larger than life savior? of course, the same thing could be said for conservatives who are desperately seeking Ronnie.

Gerard Baker thinks it’s insane to think any Obama Administration that includes Hillary Clinton in the Cabinet would be drama-free.

Finally, the great Victor Davis Hanson meditates ruefully on a society in which failure is not allowed.

I’ll be back later. Happy
