There is solid coverage of Liu Xiaobo's Nobel Peace Prize over at the BBC.

"Mr Liu, 54, was a key leader in the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989. Last year he received an 11-year sentence for "inciting subversion" after drafting Charter 08 - which called for multi-party democracy and respect for human rights in China."

Elsewhere, David Corn chimes in on the Miller-Palin "dust up." Over at FrumForum, Andrew Gelman adds his two cents to the Lou Dobbs-illegal worker story from the Nation. Also at Frum, Hank Adler argues that Obama has already lost the senate on a philosophical level whether or not democrats keep their majority. Jezebel gives their take on the Jerry Brown pejorative story. Perhaps Charles has been napping too much but, for whatever reason, Mr Krauthammer has chosen today's column to use Stephen Colbert to damn the democrats. Pat Buchanan continues to depress me with his convoluted domestic thinking. Lastly, Jesse Walker writes an interesting piece in Reason examining the similarities of today's activists/reformers to those of the antebellum era.
