That was not exactly an unannouced blogging break. It's just that Congress has been so distressing, and the news has been so same-ol' same-ol' that it was depressing to consider making comments. I've been making short ones elsewhere on the web, notably at The Sideshow, Whateveresque, The Mockingbird's Medley and assorted other places. But I really have just had no heart to discuss how miserably the Democrats have been rolling over.
The one news item that really annoyed me was the Ahmadinejad at Columbia stuff. Look, Columbia has a largely Jewish student body. Ahmadinejad is a Holocaust denier. The combination was a little predictable, except that introducing a speaker by insulting him is the rankest form of bad behavior -- the President could at least have waited until Ahmadinejad was a bad guest before being a bad host. It was a perfectly crappy thing for the representative of a University to do.
