- Support for the U.S. war in Afghanistan is down to just 25 percent, according to a new poll from CNN. For the first time, the majority of Republicans are opposed to the war. Only 34 percent of those polls believe the United States is winning the war. That must be the same bunch who still believed the South Vietnamese were winning on the day Saigon fell.
- Although the rest of us won’t know the results until June, the members of the U.S. Supreme Court presumably already know which way the decision on ObamaCare has gone. They justices were meeting Friday afternoon to vote on the case. The winning side and the dissenting side will then have a few months to polish their written decisions before we hear what they decided.
- Speaking of the ObamaCare decision, Reason’s Peter Suderman has a different take on why the progressive left legal establishment was so surprised at oral arguments in the case earlier this week. While others have focused on the idea that public opinion and politics are influencing the decision, Suderman argues that those on the left simply didn’t understand their opponents’ arguments, so they were unable to take them seriously.
