The Media's Preferred Strategy: Fight People, Not Principles

nationalreview.com — It's good advice, but it seems pretty clear that both the national media and a like-minded administration would prefer the opposite. The tendency to turn complicated issues into a binary choice about one controversial figure is depressingly standard for the media; you'll recall how the story about the NSA's domestic surveillance turned into the storyline of "Edward Snowden: Hero or traitor?"

Our Political Inmates Run the Asylum, So Normal People Tune Out

Obama Could Debunk Some Rumors By Releasing His Birth Certificate.

nationalreview.com — Having done some Obama-rumor debunking that got praise from Daily Kos (a sign of the apocalypse, no doubt), perhaps the Obama campaign could return the favor and help debunk a bunch of others with a simple step: Could they release a copy of his birth certificate?

Perry: Trump Offers 'a Toxic Mix of Demagoguery and Nonsense'

nationalreview.com — America doesn't need another president who pays lip service when issues of national security are at stake. America doesn't need another president who will pass the buck on border security. We need a president who will finally act to secure the border after decades of failed leadership in Washington, D.C.

The Democrats' Strategy: Insist the Deal Doesn't Restrict Inspections

nationalreview.com — Completely false: "UN inspectors can demand access to nuclear facilities on Iran military sites, but they aren't immediate or even guaranteed. Any inspections at those sites would need to be approved by a joint commission composed of one member from each of the negotiating parties.
