Around the Horn

- Shaun Kenney notes the continuing futility of Lamont supporters in Connecticut. Does Kos realize what he is doing, supporting not only the likely loser in November, but also supporting a Wal-Mart hypocrite?

- And Democrats are not having a whole lot of luck everywhere. Carl Kilo points out the elections in Tennessee. Republican voters may not be as frustrated with Republican politicians as Democrats like to think.

- Not to be outdone, Jerry Fuhrman observes that Democrats have blocked a new minimum wage initiative. Wait, aren't Democrats for higher wages? I guess only when they can take credit for it.

- Think this summer has been hot? People from 1930 would beg to differ, because it has not been as hot this year as it was then. Funny, I figured that if we had global warming, there would have been at least a couple summers that would have beaten out that 1930 summer. Of note, Waldo's new obsession Patrick Michaels is spoken to in this article, but referred to incorrectly as a professor at VPI; rather, he is a professor at my alma mater, the University of Virginia. It is good to see a dissenting opinion at UVa, though Waldo seems to think otherwise; Al Gore's "consensus" does not exist, and people who think otherwise are foolish.

- Speaking of foolish people, a third of Americans think that the United States government is somehow responsible for the 9/11 attacks. It is amazing how some people think just because they hate who is in power or has a voice in any certain field.

- And finally, it appears that Colin Cowherd of ESPN Radio has it out for UVa football fans. Sounds like the guy holds some sort of jealous grudge to me; is Cowherd a Terp or something?

I think Marcus has it right.
