Why Republicans and Democrats Can’t Feel Each Other’s PainA new study shows why empathy doesn't cross the political aisle. Interesting in light my comment that conservatism is a profound failure of empathy for those less fortunate. (Via [info]ericjamesstone.)

Conservatives Bristle At Federal Court’s Retaliatory Move At Obama[E]ven conservatives are concerned that the circuit court judges stepped out of bounds Tuesday — and made Obama’s point about judicial overreach for him. Remember, kids, it's "judicial activism" when conservatives disagree with the outcome of legislation from the bench, but "wise Constitutional jurisprudence" when they support the outcome. Principled intellectual consistency is for liberals and fools.

Santorum moves fuel predictions he will exitCampaign that has pressed Romney hard ratchets back. Aww. The GOP primaries without Senator Frothy Mix will be like the circus without the clowns.

I was awake at 3:15 this morning. Unable to go back to sleep, I got up at 3:45. I have been up ever since. I know I'll crash hard at some point; I hope it won't be soon. Sorry to be missing you at Norwescon.

I'm still on Texas time after a trip down there last week, so I woke up at what I consider to be an ungodly early hour for Saturday.

How do you handle all those frequent time changes that go with your frequent travels.

Time changes don't bother me much. Couldn't tell you why, I just mostly do okay with them.
