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.

The Super-Committee Leaks

Apparently there is word that Arizona Senator Jon Kyle (R) blocked progress.  Over at The Washington Post Ms Jennifer Rubin disputes that.

Ms Rubin notes that her colleague, Columnist Dana Milbank, wrote that Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) was “the committee member who had done more than any other to assure its failure.”  Apparently Ms Rubin was not convinced:
I asked Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), the former head of the Office of Management and Budget who is regarded as an effective deal-maker, about Kyl. He shot back: “Having been a key part in the negotiations with Vice President Biden this summer, Senator Kyl played a very constructive role, including building upon the Biden talks to identify billions of dollars of spending reforms on the mandatory and discretionary sides that had a degree of bipartisan support. These policies would have been at the core of any package had we come together.”
And, from listening to the President talk about the 12 Apostles throwing up their hands, I thought the Republicans offered no tax increases.  Now comes Ms Rubin saying that Senatory Pat Toomey (R-PA) had a quarter of a trillion dollars to offer.

It is out there somewhere and some guy with a lamp is looking for it.  I hope he finds it.

Of course there is "word." No doubt from "unnamed sources." The failure was preplanned and successfully engineered. Now the Democratic attack dogs will go to work to try and eviscerate first the R members of the so called super committee, then the rest of the R party.
