    The American Interest ^ | January 18, 2013 | Walter Russell Mead
    You know the blue model is in serious trouble when even New York Times writers turn against it. Yesterday dyed-in-the-wool Democrat Thomas Edsall responded to Via Meadia‘s take on blue model collapse. In his response he struggles mightily with the bluer angels of his nature, calling our take “apocalyptic,” but in the end admits that 20th-century liberalism is in serious trouble: Dozens of city and state public employee pension plans are on the verge of bankruptcy—or are actually bankrupt—from Rhode Island to California; in 2010, a survey of 126 state and local plans showed assets of $2.7 trillion and liabilities...

    The highest-ranking Democrat in America, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, described the Senate bill making English the national language of the American people as "racist."

    OTTAWA (Reuters) - Prime Minister Paul Martin's lead in the polls evaporated as the country headed into an election campaign, according to the latest survey released on Tuesday. Three other polls released on Monday and Tuesday showed a lead of five to six percentage points for Martin's Liberals over the Conservative Party, led by Stephen Harper. But the Ipsos-Reid poll showing a tie was the most recent, taken on Monday night after the opposition parties brought down the minority government in a confidence vote over Liberal corruption, triggering a January 23 election. Taken for CanWest/Global News, the Ipsos-Reid poll put...

    The Main-Stream Liberal Media seems to have the right to complain about America. They make liberal use of this right, especially when Conservatives are involved. It seems Conservatives bother them. Conservatives have been the target of its slander, mockery, hatred and lies. The MSLM takes particular pleasure in criticizing the Convservatives humanitarianism, human rights and religious culture. It has every right to do so. Even when it's humanity means pro-choice. Even when it's human rights means weapon bans. Even when it's culture means 'Will and Grace'. The MSLM replies to our complaints by saying they have nothing against America, just...
