Salon on Scott Walker Is Everything You'd Expect

I have a piece on the homepage this afternoon about Scott Walker’s controversial (read: “controversial”) immigration remarks. But since I focused on the backlash from the right, I was not able to note this gem of leftwing analysis —Show More Summary

April 22 is Lenin’s Birthday. It also happens to be Earth Day. This is probably not a coincidence, as my colleague R. J. Smith notes at Openmarket. R. J. is one if the longest standing proponents of free-market environmentalism and private conservation, so was there at the time. Show More Summary

Per the Washington Post: Buried in a massive Pew study on the public’s feelings about data and open government is this amazing nugget: Just 23 percent trust the federal government to do the right thing “at least most of the time.” Twenty three percent!

Wisconsin's Shame: No, the Left is Not Going to Stop Trying to Criminalize Free Speech

I’ve been overwhelmed by the response to my article about Wisconsin prosecutors’ efforts to criminalize conservative activism, complete with terrifying dawn and pre-dawn raids.
