Secretary of State John Kerry says the United States is “making progress” in holding accountable those who murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Libya last September. Good grief, it's been seven months, man. Americans want answers, not “progress.” ... Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew is telling European leaders to pursue pro-growth policies. That's all fine and dandy until you understand what Mr. Lew actually means by “pro-growth” — more government spending. That's simply more government interventionism to mask the lie of all of the preceding government interventions. It's what bureaucrats propose when they don't know what they're doing. ... The Supreme Court has ruled that police should seek warrants before extracting blood from suspected drunken drivers — but only when they believe a blood sample can't be obtained in a timely fashion (i.e., before the alcohol can dissipate in the bloodstream). We didn't know the Fourth Amendment came with a time stamp, did you? ... Erstwhile Pennsylvania GOP U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, formerly of Penn Hills and still with a postal drop box in Verona, had the great courage of his convictions (ahem) to come out against the Toomey-Manchin gun bill Wednesday last — but only after it was abundantly clear that it would fail. And to add insult to his safe-harbor stand, he misrepresented the measure. What a guy. They trap weasels in Iowa, don't they?
