Today's starter: Noel Sheppard and I noted Thursday, the Republicans' electoral fortunes are beginning to look up. Now comes word that online gambling sites that allow wagers on elections are starting to favor Republicans retaining control of the House. The GOP's poll numbers are also up as well. Have the Democrats peaked?
Starter topic: Why did so many left-wing blogs, dependant on free speech themselves, want the government to force ABC not to air "Path to 9/11?" Ann Althouse's answer: "It's too late to decide to attack bin Laden, so let's attack this TV show."
Starter topic: Mark Tapscott thinks John McCain doesn't have a chance for the GOP nomination unless he renounces his campaign finance regulation bill:
If the Republican Party nominates Sen. John McCain, R-AZ, for president
in 2008 without his official apology for and repudiation of
McCain-Feingold, plus introduction of legislation to repeal that
monstrous outrage against the First Amendment, no conservative,
libertarian or honest liberal can support him for the White House.
I tend to agree. How about you?
UPDATE 12:19. Different topic: In case you've been trying to access one of the blogs on mu.nu, they've crashed but hope to be back later today.
UPDATE 12:58. Ace emailed me and says mu.nu is fixed.
