Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

I've added numerous new links in the blog roll in the last few days. Silt and Sideshow are both part of the growing liberal echo chamber of the blogosphere, and I've been meaning to put them in for a while. Silt has been a bit inactive lately, but Sideshow has some particularly good posts in the last few days that I'll be commenting on further, time permitting.
Armed Liberal is a somewhat offputting name for me. I tend to agree with Rabi: "When I hear the word 'gun', I reach for my culture." Guns and motorcycles really aren't my thing, but smart commentary is. This blog is just too good to ignore.
Max Sawicky has a new page design that I like much better than his old one, including a more accessible blog roll that very tastefully includes the Nuisance. And he writes in a language that is, for an economist, almost indistinguishable from English.
I don't really want to link to the same name blogs that everyone else does. That's why I don't link LGF , Pejman, Clueless, or several other big name, mostly conservative, blogs, even though I like them and read them with great frequency. If you're reading this blog, you almost certainly already know about them. I do link Instapundit, but it's the law, what can I do?
I would rather link to newer and smaller blogs. There actually are some blogs out there that are even newer and arguably more obscure than the Nuisance. I've added several to my roll: Terminus, Indepundit, Silflay Hraka, and Chilicheeze.
You don't have to be liberal to get on the Nuisance blog roll, although it does help. Happy Fun Pundit is way to the right, but makes the cut anyway by being very funny.
Muslimpundit has been commented out because to make the roll, you actually have to do some blogging. Nothing would make me happier than to have Adil end his silence, inshallah, so I could slay the fatted calf and welcome him back to my list. Kausfiles is also gone until he gets a linking address at Slate that actually works.
