Have the Beautiful Royal Couple of our Everlasting Dreams finally left Canada? Have I mentioned that I loathe the British monarchy and wish it were abolished in this country?

Liberal Values: Michele Bachmann signs crazy extremist right-wing pledge that calls for ban on pornography and vilifies homosexuality, among other things. Behold, the Republican Taliban!

Can It Happen Here?: Defence spending has gone way up over the past decade. So who, then, has won the wars, and did bin Laden actually get what he wanted?

Rising Hegemon: Yes, that's UK PM David Cameron in bed with Rupert Murdoch. Oh, that News of the World scandal is an ugly, sordid, corrupt affair that reaches to the very top of the political and media establishment.

The Duck of Minerva: A new report compares how UK media and government have framed Irish and Muslim communities since the '70s. The result has been fear and alienation... and worse.

The Confluence: With Obama possibly targeting Social Security and Medicare for a deal with the GOP, progressives are rightly outraged. So how about Hillary in 2012?
