Olbermann, who else?

The Chicago Tribune goes where few would dare to tread after the Supremes overturn D.C.'s handgun law:

Some view this court decision as an affirmation of individual rights. But the damage in this ruling is that it takes a significant public policy issue out of the hands of citizens. The people of Washington no longer have the authority to decide that, as a matter of public safety, they will prohibit handgun possession within their borders.

The NYT's Paul Krugman has a good column this morning about Reagan, Clinton, and Obama:

The candidate’s defenders argue that he’s just being pragmatic — that he needs to do whatever it takes to win, and win big, so that he has the power to effect major change. But critics argue that by engaging in the same “triangulation and poll-driven politics” he denounced during the primary, Mr. Obama actually hurts his election prospects, because voters prefer candidates who take firm stands.

This is the electric-powered Chevy Volt, which a headline on the Huffington Post inexplicably touts as "The Barack Obama of Automobiles."

Does that mean that once it gets halfway to its destination, the car starts veering steadily to the right?
