That light isn't part of the back drop. He's just got it like that.

Victor Davis Hanson is confused about the national logic since November 4th, 2008. Some things just don't seem to make much sense and he's jotted down a ten-item list to help out. THE BUZZ will keep score with Zing points.

Hanson writes:

"1. The budget. Wanting to cut $17 billion from the budget, as President Obama has promised, is proof of financial responsibility. Borrowing $1.84 trillion this year for new programs is "stimulus." The old phrase "out-of-control spending" is inoperative."

Zing! And that sound is China laughing all the way to the bank.

"2. Unemployment. The number of jobs theoretically saved, or created, by new government policies — not the actual percentage of Americans out of work, or the total number of jobs lost — is now the far better indicator of unemployment."

Zing again. South Carolina's May unemployment was 12.1 percent.

"3. The private sector. Nationalizing much of the auto and financial industries, while regulating executive compensation, is an indication of our new government's repeatedly stated reluctance to interfere in the private sector."

Zing! We won't call the man a Socialist BUT that does go against our market system. If you manage your business poorly and you lose, you're technically not supposed to get a do-over. Toyota isn't getting incentives for doing very well is it?

"4. Race and gender. Not what is said but who says it and about whom reveals racism and sexism. For example, a Hispanic female judge isn't being offensive if she states that Latinas are inherently better judges than white males."

.25 Zing points - Sure, perceptions of racism has a slant but the example given was taken out of context too much to be respectable.
