Trent Reznor’s new project — How To Destroy Angels — has released its first EP.

Did I mention it’s free? Or that you can upgrade to the lossless format of your choice for two bucks?

Yes, Coast-to-Coast Tea Party is back after a lovely Independence Day break. On today’s episode, Ryan Hecker and the Contract From America.

Thus Endeth the Vacation

Mort Zuckerman had an interesting hand-wringing piece on President Obama’s fall from grace with the American people. But one bit stood out — for all the wrong reasons. Read:

The administration’s stimulus program, because of the way Congress put it together, has created far fewer jobs than anyone expected given the huge price tag of almost $800 billion. It was supposed to constrain unemployment at 8 percent, but the recession took the rate way above that and in the process humbled the Obama presidency.

Note that to Zuckerman the stimulus wasn’t a bad idea, it was just poorly-implemented. It’s that same old liberal conceit — that there’s nothing wrong with the government having huge levers of power, we just need “the right people” to work them.

We’ve been hearing that excuse for a century or longer. Give it up already.
