...so far. (As we impatiently await, as Paul Harvey would say, the rest of the story.)
"devil's advocate" Usually just a figure of speech, but in this case we can take it literally.
"That the race may be close does not say much for the voters in Kentucky." It doesn't say much for Mitch McConnell
"Since Eschliman posted a highly inflammatory word -- gaystapo -- in his blog..." Then he discovered just how accurate the word is.
It's a pretty foolish mistake, considering it's in the headline. Doesn't anybody at least look at the columns before they post them? It's not like we are expecting them to proofread and edit the comments section. Ask Dan Quayle how much credibility you can lose with a silly spelling mistake (even if you're just reading someone else's mistake, as he was.)
RE: "Perry doesn't have any National Guard. It's called "National" guard for a reason. He has to have permission from the Feds to use them!" They are under state control until activated for federal service. From the same article you referenced: When National Guard units are not under federal control, the governor is the commander-in-chief of the units of his or her respective state or territory (such as Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands). The President of the United States commands the District of Columbia National Guard, though this command is routinely delegated to the Commanding General of the DC National Guard.[19] States are free to employ their National Guard forces under state control for state purposes and at state expense as provided in the state's constitution and statutes. In doing so, governors, as commanders-in-chief, can directly access and utilize the Guard's federally assigned aircraft, vehicles and other equipment so long as the federal government is reimbursed for the use of fungible equipment and supplies such as fuel, food stocks, etc. This is the authority under which governors activate and deploy National Guard forces in response to natural disasters. It is also the authority under which governors deploy National Guard forces in response to man-made emergencies such as riots and civil unrest, or terrorist attacks.[20]

"McDaniel's partisans don't just have to prove that more than seven-thousand ineligible voters went to the polls, but also that they all voted for Cochran, not McDaniel." False. They just have to find enough to call into question the integrity of the election. When the number of fraudulent votes exceeds the margin (and I have no doubt that it will - they are in the 6,000s already), when the winning side was actively encouraging the fraud, and when the winning side was possibly (probably) guilty of buying votes, then the integrity of the election is compromised.
I believe the speed limits in England are still MPH, and you can still get a pint in the pub. It's the imperial pint, which is 20 imperial ounces, which equals about 18.6 US ounces. All of that tends to make one of the metric advocates' points, but to quote IHaveARightToYourEarnings, "Who gives a @#$%&?"
D) Is the father forbidden to live with the mother? ...If all the above conditions are requirements for this benefit then it makes sense and has the correct associated accountability. Because then the father might actually interact with the child, and might develop a relationship with the child, and might actually marry the mother and take responsibility for the child. Sorry, that's providing incentive for the wrong thing. Young married couples with children often have one or both parents trying to earn degrees while one or both try to work full-time as well. Why aren't they the focus of creative assistance like this. I will add that there should be some market forces here, too. These rooms should be more expensive than a shares room without the cooking facilities in a normal dorm.
