The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Narrative Failure

The Inspundit has this post today on how those fire breathing Freshmen in the US House are not.
NARRATIVE FAIL (CONT’D):  “According to the caricature, the tea partiers elected a group of freshmen Republicans who want government slashed right now, can’t compromise, and are ready to let the heavens fall for the sake of ideological purity.  They are, to use E. J. Dionne’s unfortunate phrase in his column today, ‘fire-eaters.’  In reality, most freshmen voted for the continuing resolution.  Most of them voted for the last one, too–the one that the Club for Growth, Heritage Action, and other conservative groups were whipping against. Maybe you’re disappointed by the way the freshmen are behaving, or maybe you’re pleased, but either way they’re not conforming to the storyline.”

I wish that E.J. Dionne were right — but, really, how likely is that?
In a way, I am happy with the Freshmen, because we have to start walking this deficit and this debt back.  Politics is the art of the possible.  And, it is about encouraging the other side to move.  We will hear from the President on Wednesday about his plans to deal with the growing debt issue.
