George Zimmerman now has a social media posse.

We have worked to shut down all of Mr. Zimmerman’s websites and social profiles. It is not in Mr. Zimmerman’s best interests to speak publicly about this case, and as he has hired us to represent him, we feel part of our responsibility to our client is to provide a voice for Mr. Zimmerman, but only when it is appropriate to do so. Please understand that, with pending criminal charges, he cannot speak freely concerning these issues.

In New Jersey, the case for ALEC.

Perhaps liberals have confused legislation with college term papers. In college, of course, you can’t copy somebody else’s paper and present it as your own. That would be plagiarism. But the legislator’s job is not to come up with something “original,” but to present high-quality legislation for consideration by fellow legislators – from whatever source is available.

This does dodge the accusation liberals have been making – that businesses might (might!) be evading lobbying rules by simply helping a think tank write model bills.

Judicial Watch goes brutal on the administration, which it’s been hounding for photos of bin Laden’s death.

Barack Obama has taken a schizophrenic approach to the bin Laden raid. On the one hand he doesn’t want to spike the football for fear of offending terrorists abroad while on the other he gloats about it here at home. He can’t have it both ways. 

And Zeke Miller finds an ad that tries awfully hard.
