Breakfast in America: December 28, 2012

  • General Norman Schwarzkopf passed away. My favorite Schwarzkopf story involved a much younger him throwing a hissy fit that the West Point debate team was taking cadet Wesley Clark away from his studies.
  • Megan McArdle thinks the White House petition system is nearing its end after secession and deporting Piers Morgan. I hope she’s wrong — the idiocy of these petitions and the media attention they garner helps remind Americans of the importance of actually going out and voting.
  • Michael Barone — who predicted Romney would win 315 electoral votes — explains that the numbers show that Romney never inspired Republican voters. Interesting…because before election day, Barone’s expert number-crunching also said, “But just about every indicator suggests that Republicans are more enthusiastic about voting — and about their candidate.” Say what you will about Dick Morris, but at least he has the dignity to admit he was wrong.
