*The MinuteMan rips Paul Krugman for criticizing John Ashcroft for not holding a press conference on the arrest of a domestic terrorist. Of course, if you missed it, Michelle Malkin did a good number on Krugman's last fact-challenged foray into smearing Ashcroft. (via Instapundit)

*PJ O'Rourke (via Kaus) rehashes parts of his 1986 essay "Goons, Guns & Gold" in which he goes after John Kerry for being spineless (or, as O'Rourke wrote in his notes at the time, "ball-less" - even Joe Conason comes out looking like a hero compared to Kerry.) Not that Richard Lugar fares well either, and I suppose you can argue that Kerry's unwillingness to get involved showed a nuanced appreciation for the diplomatic complexities, but it's still a rather ugly incident.

*An amusing conversation between Pat Buchanan and Ralph Nader. They agree more than they disagree.
