Annotations & Elucidations The Return Of The Editorial Comic/Twisted Tax Logic
When a friend sent me a comic today today, I thought it would make a good addition to the blog. Then I remembered that I used to provide a link to one or more editorial comics each week. So, enjoy. You don't even have to click a link to get to it.
The big news in the campaign today is Democrat Creigh Deeds' continuing saga of twisted tax logic. He put up a television ad, then pulled it because he realized it didn't make much sense for Mark Warner to talk about Deeds lowering taxes yet continuing his (Warner's) policies (which raised them considerably). Yes, not too clear (see here).
Nationally, the Supreme Court will hear a case about Crosses in the Mojave desert. In Commentary, we have the excellent Thomas Sowell writing on the Obama administration's reputed brilliance, Bobby Eberle about the same's indoctrination of our children, and Bart Hinkle about property rights (or, the government trying to take them away). But, in what may be the most entertaining piece today, aside from the comic, is an article from the Norfolk Virginian-Pilot about socialists — who say they are misunderstood. Let them talk to the Obama administration.
