Rep. Brian Baird (D-Wash.) vs a Marine

Baird made headlines last week by comparing town hall protesters to Nazi guards.
Calling opponents of socialized health care and insurance "brown shirts" didn't go over well with one member of the audience

Keep it up!

More on Yale and the Danish Mohammed cartoons

Roger Kimball has it here. No big surprise, if true. What's a little academic integrity when money is on the line?

Innovative Anti-Islamist Program

This appeared in my email this morning:
Don't forget to mark your calendars. As you may already know, it is a sin for a Muslim male to see any woman other than his wife naked. He must commit suicide if he does.

So next Saturday at 4 PM Eastern Time, all American WOMEN are asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help weed out any neighborhood terrorists. Circling your block for one hour is recommended for this anti-terrorist effort.

All patriotic men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front of their house to prove they are not Islamists and to demonstrate they think its okay to see nude women other than their wife and to show support for all American women.

Since Islam also does not approve of alcohol, a cold 6-pack at your side is further proof of your anti-Islamist sentiment. The American government appreciates your efforts to root out terrorists and applauds your participation in this anti-terrorist activity.

It is your patriotic duty to pass this on.
If only it was so easy...

Chief Science Adviser John P. Holdren

Some might think the suggestion that the Democrats are fascists is a bit over the top, but the Washington Times has an interesting story which strikes me as a bit more specific than fascist, more along the tune of "Nazi Times Are Here Again".

This is a bit back in President Obama's Chief Science Adviser John P. Holdren's career, but
In "Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment," a book he co-authored in 1977 with noted doomsayers Paul R. and Anne H. Erlich, Mr. Holdren wrote: "Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society."
That's the beauty of the Living Constitution: It will not only let you ask "What would Hitler do?" but lets the government show you what he would do.
In case compulsory abortion wasn't enough to diffuse his imaginary population bomb, Mr. Holdren and the Erlichs considered other extremist measures. "A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men," they wrote. "The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control."
Gotta love a government which opens additional possibilities.
...The Holdren-Erlich book also promotes "Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods." After noting that, well, yes, there were "very difficult political, legal and social questions, to say nothing of the technical problems," Mr. Holdren and his co-authors express hope that their idea may still be viable.
I bet they do. Especially in Republican...oh...excuse me: Racist, fascist, gun-toting, reactionary neighborhoods. Progressives: Gotta love 'em. Or else.

DNA can now be faked

Oh great. At least it can apparently be detected. For now.

Thanjks to InstaPundit for the lead.
