The Morning: March 28, 2011

One of these thing is exactly like the others? The U.S. joins China, North Korea, Iran, and Yemen in carrying out the most executions last year.  Even though the global trend is toward abolition.

So, Haley Barbour goes on Bryan Fischer’s radio show: As President he would reinstate DADT in order to save our soldiers from the deadly distraction of an “Amorous Mindset”.  That way gays won’t get in the save of “saving people’s lives and killing bad guys”

Make everyone go through metal detectors or let anyone bring a gun: Arizona makes it nearly impossible for public concert venues to keep guns out of events.  If a bar wants to keep guns out, they must have a “gun locker”. Because we want to make it easy to mix guns and alcohol.

A win is a win: A small Chinese village rejects the state-sponsored candidate in favor of the candidate who has been fighting and jailed for better compensation for the village.

The failure of military leadership: Trying to understand how the “kill team” was allowed to operate in Afghanistan.

He’s still Prime Minister: Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi is on trial for fraud and hasn’t stepped down yet.  There are three more cases coming up.
