  • Oh, Elena Kagan confirmation hearings, you finished before you could even really get started! Where were your memorable moments, your lunatic grandstanding, your insights into softball strategy? All we have is some outraged testimony from some military guys saying that at Harvard Law Kagan made them "use the back door by the garbage" (i.e., by the gays). Looks like she'll be confirmed, but with not many Republican votes, and maybe not with Specter's vote either, since he thought her answers were "pure prepared pabulum" and not substantive like hearings used to be back in the day.

  • Manufacturing jobs are coming back, hooray! Unfortunately, Americans are far too dumb to fill them, since they now require specialized skills such as "math." [NYT]
  • Xinhua, the Chinese government-run news agency, is starting an English-language news channel with a fancy Times Square headquarters! It is all part of a $6 billion effort to expand state-owned Chinese media companies into foreign-language markets. Will impoverished English-speaking journalists give up their principles and shill for the Butchers of Beijing?

  • Sad Charlie Crist has been reduced to asking Democrats for money. [NYT]
