Around the Web

My NRB colleague Walter Hudson takes on some fringe pseudo-conservative wackos freaking out over the casting of a black actor as a Marvel Comics version of a Norse god and secondary character in the upcoming Thor movie.

Here's something you don't see every day: a local Planned Parenthood calling it quits because they refuse to offer abortion services, which the national Planned Parenthood finds intolerable. "Pro-choice" indeed...

Mike Huckabee vs. Sarah Palin on healthy diets in schools? Sorry Lisa, but I'm with Palin.

Tom Coburn explains why that healthcare bill for 9/11 first responders isn't all it's cracked up to be. It passed anyway, though, and Coburn's okay with the final version.

Be careful how you phrase things, Exhibit #804,792: Robert Stacy McCain explains yet again that he's not a rape apologist. It's a shame that an important point about safety and responsibility got lost amidst the hysteria.

Abolish the FCC? Go for it. Decisions with the force of law that affect Americans' lives have no business being made by unelected, unaccountable agencies.
