". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

"Nothing Else Matters"

How fitting that the two things I most feared about an Obama presidency have come front and center in the same week: national security and the Supreme Court. In particular, national (and for that matter, international) security dwarfs everything else. Forget the bailouts and the tax increases and the stock market and the falling dollar. Forget the spectre of nationalized health care and the chimera of global warming. We're back to living with THE BOMB. And Obama has said no to taking any real steps--such as preemptive strikes or anti-missile defense--to keep that from becoming our new reality.

James Lewis at American Thinker lays it all out. Read, if you dare.

I just wonder how all the Ron Paul voters are feeling.

They've been kind of quiet.

It'll be okay, nuclear non-proliferation was his key issue in the Senate.

I do wonder if we've seen the last Supreme Court appointment of the year though...
