Non-Citizens Are Voting | National Review Online

nationalreview.com — Could non-citizen voting be a problem in next week's elections, and perhaps even swing some very close elections? A new study by two Old Dominion University professors, based on survey data from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study, indicated that 6.4 percent of all non-citizens voted illegally in the 2008 presidential election, and 2.2 percent in the 2010 midterms. Given that 80 percent of non-citizens lean Democratic, they cite Al Franken 's 312-vote win in the 2008 Minnesota U.S.

Biden's Holding a Fundraiser for Braley Tonight

nationalreview.com — Really? Vice President Joe Biden is holding a fundraiser for Bruce Braley tonight, in New York City? Isn't it a little late in the cycle for fundraising? Aren't campaigns in the fund-spending stage? Note that the best way the Democrats could use Biden was in a New York City fundraiser, not on the stump in Iowa...

I Criticized Media, not Brittany Maynard

nationalreview.com — Sigh. This blog is linked over at CNN in a story about Britanny Maynard deciding to postpone her suicide. But this blog is linked with the following words, meaning this is what the story says about me: She's also become a lightning rod for criticism from people who criticize that approach.

Ralph Nader: Hillary 'a Menace to the United States of America'

Using Maynard to Stifle Suicide Opponents

nationalreview.com — I find myself forced to yet again take keyboard in hand to point out that those who claim the loudest to want a substantive discussion of legalizing assisted suicide from the Brittany Maynard advocacy offensive, actually use her tragedy to stifle debate.

What's Separating the GOP's Leading Candidates From the Trailing Ones?

nationalreview.com — Sean Trende sounds the alarm for Republicans that even with some good polls floating around, they're underperforming: In this sense, I think the large number of undecided voters - who almost certainly disapprove of the president by large margins - are a potential red flag for Republicans.

Bogus Bach Theory Gets Media Singing

nationalreview.com — A musicologist who posits that J.S. Bach's second wife was a homewrecker who drove his first wife to suicide has become an improbable celebrity to feminists and international media, but his theory is extremely tenuous and has no support from experts in his field.

Kaci Hickox, Selfish Hero

nationalreview.com — Let's give credit where it is due: Nurse Kaci Hickox did an admirable thing going overseas to fight Ebola in West Africa. The 33-year-old medical volunteer put herself in grave danger to serve the least of these in Sierra Leone, where 1,200 people have succumbed to Ebola, and she deserves plaudits for it.

Maher-ophobia at Berkeley | National Review Online
