Troy is Right on DC Scholarships
I wish to associate myself with the excellent post by Troy on Barack Obama’s latest bid to kill the DC Opportunity Scholarships. The data is all in favor of the program, and so is common sense. And, most importantly, supporting the program is, as Troy said, the humane thing to do. Don’t believe us? Just try watching this video sponsored by the Heritage Foundation and narrated by Juan Williams, with its highly moving related interviews with children who actually benefit from the program, and then still try to say with a straight face that the move to kill the program is abominable.
This is a great program. It must be saved. And Barack Obama, if he had any shame at all, would and should be ashamed for trying to kill it.

If Tea Partiers Are Racist, Why Are They Supporting Juan Williams?
The political left, as illustrated by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), continues its Captain Ahab-like obsession to portray Tea Partiers as irredeemably and inherently “racist.”
So here’s a puzzle for them as they, in the words of The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Riley, “monitor Sarah Palin rallies for Confederate flags”: If Tea Partiers are so innately racist, why have they so swiftly come to the defense of Juan Williams, who is both African-American and politically liberal to boot? Such leading Tea Party figures as Senator Jim DeMint (R – SC), Sarah Palin and Congressman Eric Cantor (R – VA) immediately voiced support for Williams, and attacked National Public Radio (NPR) for summarily terminating him. How to explain this inconvenient turn of events?
Perhaps the NAACP or the hysterical anchors over at MSNBC will reply that the Tea Party’s defense of Williams is all part of its sinister scheme to deceive the American electorate just one week before the November 2 elections. Of course, that would undermine their other meme that Tea Partiers are simply a horde of ignorant yahoos. Decisions, decisions…
