I’m not supposed to like McCain

and, actually, I don’t, but when the guy sticks up for the troops (both calling poor policy what it is, and then praising better policy), and then comes out in favor of the Freedom House approach to spreading peace and democracy, it’s hard not to have McCain Feingold’s giant zit get a little bit of the greasy stuff get squeezed out.

Gov. Perry: Let Happycrow defend those kids.

Well, sort of.

But, working within a Federally Mandated Victim Zone, I can tell you that a college campus is too complex, and has too many odd corridors, for a pair of cops to get to within time to save anybody’s life if some deranged nutbag went at it.  And although the cops I’ve met on the campuses where I teach are great guys, they’re all in the middle-aged “I’ve signed on for a lighter-duty assignment so I can help people all day, because I’m not getting around as fast as I used to” category.  If some nutbag decided to come after my students, it’d all be long over by the time these guys could respond.

(With the clear and blatant exception of one campus, where we clearly have a vet, who I’ve seen repeatedly doing things like checking trash cans, etc.  He I can see matching or beating me in an impromptu emergency sprint…)

Folks who are willing to go through the training, and willing to submit to the State’s rectal exam, are generally not going to go causing any problems, and are much less likely to be the folks who go “sproing” upstairs.  The 673 licenses revoked out of 260K licenses issued is about what I recall from the instructor in the class… and folks who go sproing?  Well, once you’ve decided you’re going to go murder people, I’m guessing they’re not worried about firearm laws, or the speed limit, or any other component of civilized society, either.

Pelosi to spurn Uribe, meet with Chavez??

(ht: GatewayPundit)

The American Spectator apparently has pulled data showing that Nancy Pelosi is going to continue the fine Democratic tradition of talking a good line on freedom, and then going to sit down in a lovefest with every tyrant on the planet.

This time, instead of “the road to peace runs through the bloodsoaked carbombers of Damascus,” it’s going to be “we pee upon the people of Colombia as they try to free themselves, and instead with meet with Hugo Chavez as he single-handedly ruins Venezuela.”

This is ridiculous.  There are times when the Logan Act really should be enforced.
