Trust, But Verify?

One wonders why CNN, 'The Most Trusted Name in News' has flung open their doors for Erick Erickson. Not because of Erickson's affiliation with conservative website RedState.com, but because he has made comments such as this:

""What gives the Commerce Department the right to ask me how often I flush my toilet? Or about going to work? I'm not filling out this form. I dare them to try and come throw me in jail. I dare them to. Pull out my wife's shotgun and see how that little ACS twerp likes being scared at the door. They're not going on my property. They can't do that. They don't have the legal right, and yet they're trying."

Erickson claims his words were being misconstrued by the liberal media. Oh? What part of aiming a shotgun at a Census worker did we misunderstand?


The video of a 2007 incident in which an Apache helicopter crew opening fire on a group of civilians that also included a Reuters reporter and photographer has surfaced on WikiLeaks. The video appears to include audio from the helicopter crew laughing and joking as they continue to shoot.

The Pentagon originally claimed that the group was comprised of insurgents and that the helicopter had taken small arms fire.


President Obama's new stance on nuclear arms and a moratorium on further nuclear arms development is commendable, but we'll wait to see how long it lasts before getting dialed back or dialed down or restated, like his stance on torture, Guantanamo Bay, and a public option for healthcare.
