A round up of today's columns on debates that we covered yesterday.
- Gwen Ottinger, Washington Post: If you want to be green, you should consider keeping your clunker.
- Richard A. Epstein, Forbes: Congress should chill out with the regulation. "Your political ambition far outstrips your mastery of regulatory technique."
- Froma Harrop, Real Clear Politics: The program was a great success, especially for Ford. "Thanks to the program, Ford on Monday reported its first monthly year-over-year sales gain since 2007."
- Gerald F. Seib, Wall Street Journal: Americans have "a deep, almost inexplicable schizophrenia" about health care: "I hate the health-care system -- but don't you dare mess with it."
- Robert Shrum, The Week: Democrats should not to panic in the face of Republican lies on health care. "Democrats can enact their health bill without a single Republican vote if they need to."
- Anne Moore, Salon: Harry and Louise should "Say no to feeding tubes, ventilators, resuscitators, the isolation of ICU," and die at home, where it costs taxpayers less....Pat Buchanan agrees.
- Eugene Robinson, Washington Post: We won't legitimize the birthers by analyzing them. "About all that can be said is that a bunch of lost, confused and frightened people have decided to seek refuge in conspiratorial make-believe."
- Daniel Larison, American Conservative: Actually, Sarah Palin is not like Ahmadinejad. Not even close.
