NaturalBlog News Update: Politics and other

HRC reaches for the check. Hillary Clinton will forgo public financing for her 2008 presidential bid, because she can spend a heckuva lot more if she relies on her own fundraising machine. Some people say this means the end of public financing. Sounds good to me, since the only candidates who take it have no chance of winning.

OMG. This guy really hates America. In a Los Angeles Times editorial, a Johns Hopkins University professor makes the case that the 9/11 terror attacks weren't all that bad. Wow. Doesn't he know that dissent has to wait until we're no longer in a time of war. So, 2045 maybe?

Oh, Harvard. The New York Times and Boston Globe offered dueling features Sunday on Barack Obama's time at Harvard Law School. The Globe says he was a gifted listener. The Times says he talked out of both sides of his mouth. The Times provides the best nugget, though, a Harvard Revue spoof of Obama's inspiring life story:
I was born in Oslo, Norway, the son of a Volvo factory worker and part-time ice fisherman. My mother was a backup singer for Abba. They were good folks. [I] discovered I was black, and I have remained so ever since.
