George Will

* Anthony Weiner is a proud papa. Let me click on this picture he sent the media of his new… oh COME ON Congressman, grow up! [New York Post]

* I like George Will a lot better when he’s talking about what Newt Gingrinch wants to do for the courts as opposed to what George Will wants the courts to do for black people. [Washington Post]

* It is funny how Newt Gingrich thinks Sharia Law is a mortal threat to the American Republic. I guess it takes one mortal threat to the free thinking people of the United States to know one. [New York Times]

* Either the economy is getting better, or more people are giving up hope and turning to the streets/helping Adam Sandler make movies in order to make a living. Sadly, I think it’s clearly the latter. [Market Watch]

* I don’t know when, precisely, law school warped my mind to the point where I too could come up with humorous hypotheticals about suing Santa, but I hate them for doing that to me. I really do. [Concurring Opinions]

* Looking at this list of possible conservative Supreme Court justices should really turn liberals and moderates into single issue voters next November. If you want anything other than the Antonin Scalia guide to law, your womb, and anything you wish to keep private, you either have to vote for Obama, or have to pledge to help Weekend at Bernie’s Ruth Bader Ginsburg for another four years. [Huffington Post]

Does George Will look like the protector of Black America to you?

People who think giving charity to those less fortunate also gives them the right to direct the personal choices of those receiving the charity are some of the worst people on the planet. The biggest offenders are religious organizations: “Ooh, here’s some food. Yes. You like food, don’t you? I bet you’re hungry — I can tell ’cause I can see your ribs. Well, it’s all you can eat in here… first, just say you accept Jesus Christ as your lord and savior. SAY IT. Wonderful. Bon appétit!”

Organizations do it all the time, but there are plenty of individuals who also think giving a guy a buck gives them the right to tell the recipient how to spend the money. This behavior is the worst because it takes what should be a generous gesture (giving somebody money) and turns it into a cheap way to make a BS point about your moral superiority (“If this man did just one thing more like me, he wouldn’t have to beg for my scraps.”).

If you want to help, help. But don’t use “helping” as an excuse to further some ridiculous personal agenda. You’ll just look like an idiot. You’ll just look like George Will prancing around the pages of the Washington Post trying to act like he is against affirmative action because he suddenly wants the Supreme Court to step up to the plate and “help” black people….
