Virtual Front Page, Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2012

A little early in the day, here is the news at this hour:

  1. Hamas and Israel Agree to Cease-Fire in Gaza Conflict (NYT) — Good job by Hillary Clinton. Let’s see how long this holds now.
  2. SC justices: Organized poker illegal, even in private homes (AP) — So the key, apparently, is to keep the game as disorganized as possible.
  3. Mumbai attacks gunman executed (BBC) — Bringing that horrific story to an end…
  4. Haley admits state failed to protect its residents (The State) — This is getting old at this hour, but it’s so remarkable, considering that we’re talking about Nikki Haley, that I’m including it.
  5. Clyburn sees racism in attacks on Rice (WashPost) — What with the SC angle, I might do a separate post on this.
  6. UN urges action on climate change (The Guardian) — Like anyone’s going to listen in this country, right? But we should…

    Fine, I forgive her incompetence, lack of expetience or IT knowledge. The administration has been wracked with irregularities and lack of transparency. The cost of damage done in the last two years should be reason for her to be OUT….immediately if not sooner. I hope she has been humbled and able to see her mistakes. She has been a disgrace to the state.

    Partisan political calculus of many readers is amiss overlooks the obvious:

    These date should be familiar in view of files that have been hacked

    Haley — SC legislator 2005-2010
    SC Governor 2011-2012

    Sheheen — SC Senator 2004-2008
    SC legislator 2000-2004

    Jim Hodges – SC Governor 1999-2003

    Larger issues may still be afoot. If anyone cares to recall, I had speculated to all of you in late October that hacked taxpayers had actually filed online, a fact Haley confirmed only within the last few days. Why the long delay?

    Hint: We have not been told everything yet, and Dick Harpootlian has been been strangely quiet. Hmmm!

    Regarding Mr. Clyburn’s trumped up charge of racism against Amb. Rice, he can hardly pretend he has not been part of the same 1994 Congressional Black Caucus alarmed by Bill Clinton’s inaction over Rwandan genocide. Ms. Rice said at the time, “If we use the word ‘genocide’ and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November congressional election?”
