If this smells like a shake-down, it's because it is.

The legal system that spawns the creeps who engage in this kind of lawsuit culture needs a major overhaul. Unfortunately, the public really believes this to be a noble cause. Check it out. John Stossel, get a camera crew together. These jerks are serious.

Why is this guy still getting a podium?

Spouting off about Canada: Gore accuses big oil of bankrolling Tories.

I guess this means Gore would like the left/socialist government that's made Canada's economy a loser for years to stay in power. Gore shouldn't get a fifth of the ink he still gets.

The power of the blogosphere (and other new media)

And why the left doesn't control the dialogue anymore.

Peggy Noonan in OpinionJournal makes some great points. Here's an excerpt:
Eleven years ago the Democrats lost control of Congress. Then they lost the presidency. But just as important, maybe more enduringly important, they lost their monopoly on the means of information in America. They lost control of the pipeline. Or rather there are now many pipelines, and many ways to use the information they carry. The other day, Dana Milbank, an important reporter for the Washington Post, the most important newspaper in the capital, wrote a piece deriding Judge Alito. Once such a piece would have been important. Men in the White House would have fretted over its implications. But within hours of filing, Mr. Milbank found his thinking analyzed and dismissed on the Internet; National Review Online called him a 'policy bimbo.

Could Democratic senators today torture Clarence Thomas with tales of Coke cans and porn films? Not likely. Could Ted Kennedy have gotten away with his 'Robert Bork's America' speech unanswered? No.
