Surprise! GOP Fights FCC on Behalf of MSM Freedoms – UPDATED

It's true: if I only got my news from the Mainstream Media, and did not stop in at Instapundit's place every single day, I'd never know what was going on. My day is just too busy to read everything, even though I subscribe to many news sites. Glenn Reynold's editorial eye and pithy -- often hilarious -- commentary are invaluable to me.Take this story, for instance. I had no idea that the Obama Administration was going all "Let's Create Pravda" on news outlets. Somehow, the major networks … [Read more...]

Go ahead, impeach Bush; try him

So, Dennis Kucinich has introduced articles of Impeachment against President Bush.I think he tried this once before, didn't he? (Ah, I see that was about Cheney.)The blogs are ablaze with it, of course, Fausta may have been first out of the gate, and both Thomas Lifson and Rick Moran are looking closely at Obama's remarks about trying people for "war crimes."I sort of knew this was where it was all heading two weeks ago when Couric, Gibson and Williams got together for an early … [Read more...]

“Illegals” hysteria & the place I can’t go

I had doctor's appointments most of the day, and while I was in the car I kept switching around on the radio. I pulled up Rush and couldn't listen more than a few minutes. What I heard was a disappointing, strange, paranoia-feeding rant on how the "moderate Republicans and Democrats in the Senate" have a deliberate plan afoot to "enlarge the number of victims and people who will need welfare services" so as to "enlarge government..."It's all a plot and a conspiracy, you see...nothing could … [Read more...]

The NY Times Calling for Coup or Impeachment?

This editorial strikes me as being right up there with Harry Reid's insistance, after Fitzgerald didn't give the Dems what they wanted, (Rove's head on a platter) that Bush give it to them anyway!"We don't want him to be president for three more years! The ignoramuses in the red states might have elected him, but we're not going to stop the tantrum until he's gone!"The NY Times, in this editorial, sounds remarkably like a frustrated kid in a snit. Like George Will, last month, writing … [Read more...]

Polipundit on the good economy

Polipundit blog has several good, thoughtful pieces on the economy and why America seems confused about whether it is doing well, or not.Lorie Byrd is writing: I remember going through this same thing in 1992 when the Bush recovery was described as the worst economy in 50 years until the day after the election, when it became known as the Clinton recovery. It frustrated the heck out of me then, and although it does less so now because this is not an election year, it still annoys me.Yes, I … [Read more...]

Yet more on Bush’s lineage and ancestry

Betsy Newmark, over at Betsy's Page has even more to add to what we are learning about President Bush's forebears. Between Catherine Armstrong's good work, and Betsy's it's all getting very interesting. Betsy makes the excellent point that if the left wants to imply that one's weaknesses are linked to lineage, then one's strengths must be, as well. Says Betsy:And the we find out that Bush is also somehow related to Anne Hutchinson, the woman who is now featured in all history books as the first … [Read more...]

Oh, Look! Bush is Irish, too! But of course, BAD Irish.

Egad, but it's tiring sometimes, to watch the press play, "how many ways can we hate and villify Bush?" Now, it seems, President Bush is an Irishman, after all, but he's descended from the very worst Irishmen ever to live. Of COURSE.So says this incredibly stupid article, one of the stupidest I have ever read.It is perhaps not the best omen for US foreign affairs. Local historians in Wexford have discovered that George Bush is a descendant of Strongbow, the power-hungry warlord who led the … [Read more...]
