I'm in a mood this morning, and for one reason or another have seen lots of snarky little items that the righter half of our readers, anyway, ought to enjoy.
[Regarding Obama's "class warefare" speech on Tuesday] Where to begin? A country spending twice as much per capita on education as it did in 1970 with zero effect on test scores is not underinvesting in education. It’s mis-investing. As for federally directed spending on innovation — like Solyndra? Ethanol? The preposterously subsidized, flammable Chevy Volt?
[Governor Awesome confronts protesters in Iowa] “You know what, we’re used to dealing with jokers like this in New Jersey all the time,” Christie said, as the protesters filed out. “So you guys go all out and chant and do what it is that you want to do.”
Anyway, my rule is no Nazis, no Commies, no porn. Pretty much everything else goes.
Dang, and here I was hoping to advertise my line of "Che" kitsch on Instapundit.
And once again, I’ll note that if we had a Republican president we’d be seeing endless tear-jerk accounts of senior citizens’ suffering because of low interest rates and shrinking dividends.

Along these lines, some might find Daniel Henninger's column in yesterday's The Wall Street Journal interesting: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203413304577084292119160060.html .
The seniors and low interest rates item is so true. The "news" is so distorted by the commies that run it that I often look at a story and wonder how vigorously they'd cover it if there was a good guy in the White House.
And, if you like calm, the coverage isn't too bad. Solid majorities in both houses and a very conservative president will allow reversal of Bam's garbage. Imagine the coverage as this is accomplished and contrast it with the coverage as Bam's garbage was put in place.
