Here are some blog entries that are worth checking out.

Gateway Pundit on Hunter Thompson’s remains achieving liftoff.

Richard Baehr has a good, long look at Paul Krugman’s claim that two media consortiums found that Gore should have won the 2000 election. As most of you remember, those media recounts (which took about six months and would never have been finished in just the few days available in December, 2000) found that Bush would have won the election by any method of recounting except if they only counted the overcounts. Mickey Kaus thinks that lets Krugman off the hook, but there is no hint in his column that he was referring to such a specific claim and ignoring all the findings that, if Florida had followed the standards Gore and his legal team were pushing for that Bush would have won anyway. Read Baehr’s refutation.

UPDATE: Richard Baehr has put up an addendum in which he addresses Mickey Kaus’s objections to criticisms of Paul Krugman’s column.

Decision ‘O8 is not impressed with Mickey Kaus’s argument.
