I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Confirmed - Fred Barnes is an idiot

If the Republicans lose the House and possibly the Senate Fred Barnes thinks he knows why. While Iraq and corruption didn't help Barnes thinks the real reason is they didn't support Bush's attempt to kill Social Security.
But what if Republicans had followed the president's lead last year and tried to overhaul Social Security and enact personal investment accounts? If they'd succeeded, voters would now be perusing the stock tables to decide how to invest their payroll taxes. Had Democrats blocked reform, Republicans would be pointing out the gains voters were missing in the bull market. Either way, Republicans would be ahead. So would the country.
That's right, the same Social Security "over hall" that proved to be as popular as a pit viper in the bedroom. Those folks at The Weekly Standard really do live in some alternate universe.
