Ezra Klein may not be a Nazi, but he is an extremist

In case you missed it earlier today Ezra Klein, the uber-liberal Washington Post blogger who has no problem appearing on news networks while claiming to be a health care reporter (integrity!), slammed Rand Paul as an extremist because of his objections to certain provisions of the 1964 civil rights act. What makes Paul and extremist according to Klein? Well here’s what he has to say: So I take Paul at his word that he’s not a racist. What he is, however, is an ideological extremist.

Live Tweeting President Obama’s State of the Union Speech

Well the last time I live tweeted an Obama speech people really seemed to enjoy it so I figured, why not, I’ll take on the State of the Union too.

I’m in a very exclusive beta for Twitter’s much talked about new feature lists. How exclusive you ask?

The Truth About the “Military Kidnapping” Video From the G-20

By now the video which apparently shows military personnel “kidnapping” a protester right off the streets of Pittsburgh yesterday has already made the internet rounds. It even made it on to the Drudge report this morning. Thus, not surprisingly the complete lack of facts surrounding what is happening in the video and its brevity have lead to wild speculation about what is really happening. In case you missed it here it is:
