DEBATE! DEBATE!

Filed under: Miscellaneous — Patterico @ 8:51 pm

There is a spirited debate between Xrlq and Michael Williams, in the comments to this Michael Williams post about partial-birth abortion. I am happy to have someone else debating Xrlq for once — and unlike some of my “debates” with him, this one is a real debate, featuring phrases like: “Wrong, wrong, and wrong.” Love it!

IT’S HARD TO ARGUE WITH THIS LOGIC

Filed under: 2004 Election — Patterico @ 8:16 pm

An editorial in this morning’s Los Angeles Dog Trainer extols the virtues of a tough Democratic primary race. Making an analogy to baseball, the editorial says that a tough race makes the candidates better campaigners and candidates. “[T]he longer the struggle, the better the party’s ticket is likely to be.”

I can only hope that the Democratic strategists and voters are thinking the same thing. Whether a long struggle will make the party’s ticket better is questionable. What is undeniable is that it will make the party’s ticket poorer.

Right now, I am tenting my fingers, Monty Burns style, and thinking: “Exxxxcellent.”

SCALIA/CHENEY CONTROVERSY

Filed under: Judiciary — Patterico @ 7:00 am

An article in today’s L.A. Times is titled Scalia Was Cheney Hunt Trip Guest; Ethics Concern Grows. (Remember that I expressed concerns on the issue here.) There appears to be a consensus for recusal among law professors quoted; I have yet to see anyone prominent stand up and say recusal is not necessary, or at least preferable.
