If You Root Against Kansas, You Root Against America

Best line: "If you root against KU basketball, then, you are actually rooting for slavery. You're supporting the Confederacy over United States, cheering for racism, oppression, and war, and, not for nothing, you want President Obama to fail—all of which are certainly "odious" and "contemptible" by any reasonable definitions."

Jay Bilas: VCU Tournament Run Doesn't Make Me Wrong

Jay Bilas is absolutely right. Selection Sunday is about picking the best teams based on their resumes. Just because a team didn't belong doesn't mean they can't win a few games; that's the whole point of narrowing the field, so regular season performance matters and it's not just who can win a handful of games in March.

Obama: Winner by Process of Elimination

"In my life I've voted Republican about 75% of the time. I voted for Obama because the only alternative was a cranky, not so bright old man and an attractive, perhaps intelligent but woefully ignorant woman. I favor small government, flat taxes, elimination of 99.7% of tax credits, and early term abortions, could not care less about gay marriage, and disfavor wandering aimlessly into wars. In most of these respects, Obama is far more liberal than I would like. I would love an excuse to vote against him in 2012. But he is a reasonable, intelligent, decent man with whose politics I disagree. When I look at Mitch McConnell, Eric Cantor, the tea parties, more of the ignorant woman, Huckabee, Gingrich et al., I'm disgusted," - a commenter at National Review Online (AndrewSullivan)
