Maha of the Mahablog nails it:

There possibly is no clearer measure of the difference between the U.S. Right and Left than the way we react to bad news. Righties immediately scream that the whatever-they-don’t-like is a lie, because it doesn’t fit what they think reality is supposed to be. And they blame somebody else, usually news media, or Democrats, or anybody but them. The whatever-it-is is never their fault.

Lefties accept the reality, sometimes perceiving the reality as even worse than it is. Then we blame ourselves (or at least each other), and form circular firing squads.

Nothing more to say. Go read the whole thing.

Good rant here from otherwise-unidentified John Goodman look-alike.

I have some thoughts on the matter, but I’m trying to find time to formalize them. In the meantime, let me link some conservative-leaning ideas that I find at least superficially appealing.

Part 1
Part 2

Dan M complains, with justification, that the blog has been awfully quiet. But I haven’t really had much to write about. If you want to know what I’ve been thinking about lately, you just need to go read Krugman’s blog. I can’t add much (any) value. For example, see his lengthy piece on financial reform for some good reading.

There’s even more on the difficulties surrounding financial reform from The Economist.

He adds a bit more here.
