Will: skeptical of Thompson

In Sunday's Washington Post Outlook section, George Will cautions us that the recent surge of interest in Fred Thompson as the Reaganesque savior for the cause of mainstream conservatism may end in disappointment. Thompson was on the wrong side of campaign finance "reform" (i.e., subjecting campaign politics to Federal control) and other key issues. Darn... Well, it's still early enough in the process for Thompson to rethink his position on such major policy questions. Mitt Romney redefined himself as a pro-gun-rights "hunter," for example, but the transparency of this was obvious to all.

blog highlights

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
