Things on the web that caught my eye this week:
Stanley Fish on the (positive) legacy of George W. Bush
Alan Brinkley on why our current economic crisis resembles the 1930s.
Is a vote for Obama “severe moral schizophrenia?”
So what does a Vice-President do anyway? Cornell law professor Josh Chatetz explains that neither Biden or Palin do not seem to have a clue.
Catholics, abortion, and the presidential election. I have been reading a very relevant book on this topic: Vincent Rougeau, Christians in the American Empire: Faith and Citizenship in the New World Order (Oxford, 2008). I hope to blog on this book when I finish it. More on abortion and the election here.
More on Palin’s pentecostalism.
