Off the beaten path online: Obama's resolution to stifle free speech on Islam...

← return to Water Cooler

Today’s Water Cooler lineup of off the beaten path online stories are: Obama’s resolution to stifle free speech on Islam, Palin Wins, Pawlenty falls, and MSNBC host Chris Matthews thinks right-wing evangelicals are most like the Taliban. 

On October 1, 2009, the Obama administration in conjunction with the Egyptian government, introduced an anti-free speech measure to the United Nation’s Human Rights Council (HRC).  It was adopted the next day without a vote.

The big loser here is Tim Pawlenty. At the first of this month, he made a great deal out of his new leadership PAC. He made great hay out of going out for real conservatives and not just the same old, same old.
