Over at Electric City Weblog, Rob Natelson makes a couple of mystery posts. One notes that the Obamas are sending their children to an exclusive private school. Why? "Because they care about their own kids enough to find them the best school — even if they don’t care enough about your kids to let you do the same."
What the? Guess I missed the speech where Obama said that people rich enough to afford it should not be allowed to send their kids to exclusive private schools. One of the commenters says that Sidwell costs $29,000 a year. So now Natelson, the small government guy, wants the government to come up with the money to send every American child to the equivalent of Sidwell? Bizarre.
Then he has a post explaining why he's glad newspapers are in trouble, a point he makes with a list of stories in Sunday's Missoulian that allegedly indicate liberal bias.
Just imagine: two stories, and a photo, about the guy who will become president on Tuesday (never would have happened if a Republican had been elected).
And a story about a medical marijuana bill. Wait a minute, I thought conservatives were supposed to be in favor of the individuals' right to make decisions about their own medical treatment. How'd that story slip in?
Then a story about a Martin Luther King Day Jr. celebration. So now conservatives hate civil rights, too?
And a story that "glorifies" conservation easements. No real conservative favors conservation.
A Mike Dennison column "pushing" more government health care. Read it for yourself: I don't see Dennison pushing much of anything.
An editorial praising Jon Tester -- praising a Democrat counts as liberal bias, I suppose. Except that Tester was praised for (1.) Working to help veterans (2.) Opposing banking and auto bailouts and (3.) Demanding openness in government. A conservative nightmare!
Editorial page references to George Bush's "hubris" and in favor of allowing homosexual marriage. And just imagine: Liberals in Missoula writing letters to the editor. There is no justice.
For this, newspapers should die? Couldn't bloggers be sacrificed instead?
