From the Sodakmonk: "I first noticed the (Left wing media) bias after Reagan was elected in 1980. My theory is that after Watergate, many libs became journalism majors as a way of advancing their political cause. They thought after Watergate that the Republican party would be a permanent minority. When Reagan swept into power in 1980 they couldn't believe it, and felt they had to correct what they saw as clearly a malfunction in our political system. That began their crusade." I think that the monk might have PART of the story there but I think that, in general, journalistic Leftism is just one instance of the Leftism that is to be expected of any elite group.

"The Democrats are the party of the elite. Consider Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. In a 1948 student poll Thomas E. Dewey beat Harry Truman by 2 to 1. In 2000 Al Gore beat Bush, an Andover alumnus, by nearly the same margin, reflecting the Democrats' historic capture in 2000 of "professionals," a group well-represented among the parents of Andover students. Next to African-Americans, the most reliable Democrats in the electorate are women with post-graduate degrees".

What feminist hatred of men leads to: Guilt is presumed and evidence is manufactured. "A woman's admission that she lied in accusing 13 people of pedophilia — causing some to be imprisoned for up to three years — has riveted France and shaken the nation's legal system".

A tragedy caused by the perverse Leftist belief in nurture rather than nature: "David Reimer, the Canadian man raised as a girl for the first 14 years of his life in a highly touted medical experiment, committed suicide May 4 in his hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba. He was 38."

Another battle honour for Scotland's Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders that will long be remembered -- this time in Iraq. With good British perversity, Sutherland is of course in the far NORTH of Scotland.

"Weblogs now make up 5 percent of the 128 million Internet-using American adults. A whopping 17 percent call themselves blog readers"

I can't believe the quantity of posts that the Judd Brothers put up in one day. All good too.

Carnival of the Vanities is up with its usual convenient index to blogospheric wisdom.

The Left have always wanted more spent on welfare and made "Fascism" a swear-word. President Bush deposed a brutal Fascist dictator and sponsored a big expansion of welfare. But instead of being admired by the Left, he is hated with a passion. What does that tell you about the Left? It tells you that they have no principles at all: That everything they have ever claimed to stand for is fake.

All politicians seek power but conservatives bring with them some concern for the welfare of their country. Leftists bring only their hate-filled Stalinist hearts and their pretend compassion. Voters, unfortunately, often believe the compassion is genuine
