Is this racist? Unprofessional? Ignorant? -UPDATED

The New Republic's James Gardner has taken a look at the drawings for the George W. Bush Presidential Library, and while the knee-jerk negativity is adolescent and predictable, it ends up on a rather bizarre note, for a grown-up, professional publication. We begin with the obligatory, "the last Democrat's library is better," sniff: There is a hard-edged and unapologetic modernity to the Clinton Library . . . Though some (including Clinton himself) have compared this long and rectangular … [Read more...]

The Job Summit Theatricale

Oh, my goodness. President "Duality" Obama wanted his pointless but flashy "jobs summit" to be grounded in reality, not "at 30,000 feet." He wanted to hear "details" and "real solutions," but cautioned that nothing much would be changed by the "summit." He said the private sector was the only way we'd get out of this mess, but that the uninvited private sector is the problem, because small businesses are greedily looking after their own survival, rather than hiring more people that they'll … [Read more...]

Climategate Implosion is Bush's Fault

There is a lot to read about Climategate, but none of it is in the Mainstream Media, with the exception of the Obama-Administration described "not real news" organization. That would be Fox News, which is covering the story. The New York Times, in a stunning bit of hypocrisy, says they won't report on Climategate because they didn't like the way the information was discovered. To the NY TImes, the real story, if they ever deign to cover it, will be about the method in which the story was … [Read more...]

There has always been weather

Call it Climate-gate! And call Al Gore, Ahab. Call me Ishmael. I will be ashamed if my readers did not already know (as we have discussed for years) that the Global Warming Hoax was/is, as we have always know it to be, a hoax. An effort to defraud nations and assist in the tireless (and creative) leftist international movement Or, that seems to be the general trend of the news. One suspects this hacking had much to do with the sudden collapse of the world-wide global warming boondoggle and … [Read more...]

Palin Press: Putzes in Print

Love Sarah Palin or not, one has to admit the press is so undone by her that they are both aggressive and passive-aggressive in their hate, and they betray themselves continually in all sorts of ways. They betray their snobbism; they betray their spitefulness, and most emphatically, they betray the fact that our "fourth estate" is populated mostly by perpetual adolescents. Our press, with a few exceptions, is largely made up of people who, at age 14, decided they were sophisticates who knew … [Read more...]

Sarah Palin on Oprah – UPDATES

Okay, I broke down and watched Oprah Winfrey interview Sarah Palin. Color me underwhelmed. By both women. It was like watching two lightly muzzled Doberman Pinschers, behaving because they have to, but with an undergrowl that translates, roughly, into "if we're ever alone together in the yard, you're going down..." Oprah needed Palin for the ratings; Palin needed Oprah to push the book, Going Rogue; An American Life. Both endured hour of excruciating discomfort for the sake of their … [Read more...]

"I feel like Brandon deWilde…"

Had a problem with a router and we were without internets for most of the day, but we're back up and speedy, now. Predictably, my email was all backed up, and I tried to get through it quickly, but one note made me pause, from reader Mark S., who wrote: Between Obama not bothering to show up in Germany last week . . . and neglecting to name Reagan or Thatcher (I never thought he'd mention John Paul), and then his "shout out" after the Ft. Hood shootings, and now his DOJ preparing a show trial … [Read more...]

Obama, KSM Open Thread

Okay, you guys all seem to want to talk about it, and I am really tied up elsewhere, so I'll do something I don't think I've ever done and leave an open thread - you can yell and shout about this all you want, but I ask you simply keep to the basic comment guidelines. A few links about this, if you haven't seen them: James Taranto: Obama's Show Trials The Boyz at HillBuzz who made an extraordinary apology to President Bush the other day, are rip-roaring mad about this, and are shouting … [Read more...]

Why don't you "hate" Obama?

That's a provocative headline, I know, but it is not meant to provoke. It's a real question, inspired by some of my emails from people taking me to task for insufficient appreciation of our current president, and for unseemly appreciation of our previous president, whom they and the world "hate." The question is also inspired by something I noticed while I was digging up articles on the good President Bush has done in Africa - that many people who wish to give Bush anything resembling even the … [Read more...]

School Choice in DC; a no-brainer!

Take a few minutes to watch this excellent video from PJTV, focusing on the Obama administration's ending a successful scholarship program that has allowed students to get out of the failing, miserable public schools in the District of Columbia (where more than $15,000 a year is spent, per student, with dismal results). The September 30 protest garnered little attention, but PJTV attended and asked good questions. Pay attention to the former Headmaster of Sidwell Friends School (where Chelsea … [Read more...]
