Now that the Olympics are over, and burning questions have been answered, like the controversy over Gabby Douglas’ hair, we can sit back and discuss the simpler questions of life, like global warming and voter fraud.

The United States is leading the world in the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. Yes, even without signing on to the Kyoto Protocol, if such a thing could be imagined. And it’s getting worse in Europe where cap-and-trade schemes are making the switch away from coal make less and less economic sense. But the carbon credit brokers are getting paid, so that must make it all OK.

The Norm Coleman / Al Franken election in Minnesota was decided by fewer votes than the number of felons who illegally voted. Voter fraud isn’t an issue? Really?

A new book by a guy with a front-row seat to the economic meltdown says that Ben Bernanke, even though he was a student of the Great Depression, and recognized the mistakes that the federal government made to extend the length of it, made the very same mistakes he promised Milton Friedman he wouldn’t repeat. Ah, just one more broken promise from this administration.
