I remember….

…when I actually had Catholics furious at me for pointing out that Glenn Beck was an unstable “rodeo clown” (as he described himself) and that anybody who ran after that guy or regarded him as some sort of deep thinker or reliable teacher was a fool. I actually lost readers over that proposition because, doncha [Read More...]

A Myth that Needs Killin’

So here’s a little standard issue “profile” of a dreaded Catholic prelate who thinks that Catholic politicians should face actual canonical disciplines when they spit on obvious Church teaching. It is all, of course, filtered through American political cateegories, such that the prelate is understood to be a Republican operative for pointing out the Dem [Read More...]

Do you remember those Prisoner of War videos?

The ones where the prisoners would talk about how everything was fine while attempting to blink in Morse code, “They are torturing us! Help!” I get that sense as this hapless functionary of the state-controlled media begs for Romney to please present the evidence for the case against Obama since his Overlords at CBS have [Read More...]

Me! Me! I can answer that!

The answer is, “Ryan’s former girlfriend, who happens to be black, will matter only to liberal racists in the media, projecting their own obsessions about race on to their audience in the hope of selling beer and shampoo.” Tapper is right.  The media has utterly failed us.  The only news you can actually trust is [Read More...]

And that is the last you will hear about this man here

No oxygen. No fire. Let his name be forgotten and the memory of him blotted from the earth. Let him be handed over to God who is merciful and who we beseech to heal victims and redeem miserable sinners like this wretch. For his Name is great and good and he turned even Judas’ crime [Read More...]

Deacon Greg Kandra…

…used to work for CBS. He brings an interesting perspective because he knows enough about the news biz to intelligently comment on when there’s actual bias and when the Mark Twain Principle (Never attribute to malice what can be sufficiently explained by stupidity) applies. And even he throws his hands in the air and despairs [Read More...]

Total and Complete….

Andrew Sullivan Bait. Was there ever any obsession weirder or more inconsequential than Trig Trutherism? The fascination of the allegedly feminist press with Palin gynecology is one of the creepiest sideshows to American politics in the past decade. [Read more...]


…at the Church of St. Drone. By the way, the NY Times piece mentioned in this article (“Secret ‘Kill List’ Proves a Test of Obama’s Principles and Will”) illustrates quite nicely the ideological blinkers that devotees of our God King wear when it comes to his gross betrayal of their fantasies about him–fantasies they persist [Read More...]

Am I the only one who thinks this is rather hysterical?

So some guy who got dismissed from the priesthood in 2003 for being a perv turns up working for TSA at Philly airport: A TSA official tells the I-Team Harkins’ title is “Transportation Security Manager, Baggage,” meaning he deals mostly with luggage, not passengers. “Sure, that’s his title,” Polesir said. “That doesn’t mean that’s where [Read More...]
