And Down the Stretch They Come!

My picks for the baseball awards, through August:

AL MVP: Joe Mauer, Twins. A catcher leading the league in hitting? Mauer's done that before (2006, 2008) , but he's never combined it with the sort of power--26 HR--that he's shown this season.

NL MVP: Chase Utley, Phillies. In my opinion, he's as good a player (not a hitter) as Albert Pujols. Both are having terrific years, but at some point, somebody has to acknowledge that this guy is a second baseman who's knocked in 100+ runs for the last four years. He's going to do it again this year.

AL Cy Young: Zack Greinke, Kansas City Royals. Look, this kid has star written all over him, he's leading the league in ERA, he's got a fine won/lost record considering his team, he's had some ridiculous lines this year. I really think he deserves it over some of the guys like Sabathia and Verlander who would probably finish ahead of him if the season ended today.

NL Cy Young: Chris Carpenter, St. Louis. Yeah, he's a finesse pitcher but you can't argue with the results. Almost certainly will get Comeback Player of the Year as well.

Team to Beat: Yankees. Please.

Where Did All the Bipartisanship Go?

Joe Gandelman mourns the loss of civility in politics and remembers the time, from about 2001 to 2008, when the party out of power did not engage in petty politics, but put their shoulders to the wheel and helped the president.

The present frenzy suggests that the seeds are now being sowed for a mega-polarized America that could be almost ungovernable in the 21st century if this trend continues unabated.

If Republicans and conservatives make the very legitimacy of Obama his patriotism — even the safety of allowing little kids listen to him tell them to stay in school and think about helping their community — the issue, and link his name to Hitler and/or Nazism, precisely how do they think Democrats and the left will respond next time a GOPer is in power?

The same way they did the last time a GOPer was in power; linking his name to Hitler and/or Nazism. I mean, seriously, Joe, were you stoned the least 8 years?

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
