Mere Rhetoric - Obama’s Top NSA And CIA Picks: Harsh On Israel, Sympathetic To Iran And Hezbollah

Soccer Dad - Well, duh
Soccer Dad once again examines media bias in the last election. This time in light of a report by Mark Halperin of Time magazine. John Heilmann is quoted as excusing the bias because the media generally thought Obama was smart. That, frankly, speaks for itself.

The Glittering Eye - Official History
Glittering eye examines the manner in which the Chinese tell their history with other accounts.

Joshuapundit - Zero Hour…Iran Now Has Material For First Nuclear Bomb
Joshuapundit examines a new IAEA report that speculates that Iran has enough raw material for a nuclear bomb and is only missing the technology to harness it.

Bookworm Room - Halting the Schism
Bookworm room takes a look at whether or not social conservatives are killing the Republican party. I wrote a piece similar to this myself. It's an absurd notion put out by elitist conservative pundits like Kathleen Parker, and moderate Republicans like Christine Todd Whitman. It might be good fodder for punditry, but social conservatives aren't going anywhere, and they aren't about to be exorcised from the Republican Party.
