America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

Squaring the Circle

I'm glad I watched "The Daily Show" the other day, or I wouldn't have seen George II praise the CIA as an organization "known for its secrecy and its accountability."

Both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report often repay their viewers with more than a few belly laughs.

You can find much of the The Daily Show and The Colbert Report online. Although they don't achieve the status of "perfect libertarian entertainment" (whatever that might be), for as long as Bush inhabits the White House they'll often have good shows.
