NY Times' Perpetual Lunchroom

I've always said the NY Times primarily -- note the qualifier -- featured a bunch of developmentally-arrested 14-year olds who have never been able to find their way out of the lunch room or the schoolyard, and these two pathetic pieces, showcased in what is arguably the most coveted real-estate in journalism, make the case.Gail Collins, the editor of the op-ed page, while writing about Michele Bachmann, takes time to affect a sneer because Bachmann can remember what she was wearing on a … [Read more...]

Headline questions

Saddest headline in my email today: George W. Bush was the last American President.I'm in sort of a cranky mood, especially after getting this thing in my email a dozen times. Not the HA post, the vid. If you can watch it you've got a stronger stomach than I do. And if you want info on the UI behind it, Malkin has it. Ugh, and ugh.So, I'll start with this video, instead. Note the line: "These are bad Americans, and they're putting our country at risk."Okay, I have questions.Oil … [Read more...]

Lib Blog: Afghan support was a political tactic

It's refreshing to hear the truth, even if the truth is a shameful one that played with the lives of our service people while politicians and pundits postured.An astonishingly honest assessment — one that I fear is accurate — from the lefty blog Hullabaloo:Escalation is a bad idea. The Democrats backed themselves into defending the idea of Afghanistan being The Good War because they felt they needed to prove their macho bonafides they called for withdrawal from Iraq. Nobody asked too many que … [Read more...]

"They're my nukes…" Let's eat cake.

Remember the Irishman in Braveheart who declared that Ireland, "is my island!"Seems President Obama thinks our nuclear arsenal is his weaponry.Thank Ace for the boldface:Obama has rejected the Pentagon's first draft of the "nuclear posture review" as being too timid, and has called for a range of more far-reaching options consistent with his goal of eventually abolishing nuclear weapons altogether, according to European officials. ... The review is due to be completed by the end of this … [Read more...]

I believe Obama rejects Carter's charge – UPDATED

In a post below, I noted a tweet from CBS' Mark Knoller:Rejecting Jimmy Carter analysis, WH spksmn Gibbs says Pres. Obama does not blv that criticism of him comes based on the color of his skin.I twittered back: I believe this constant cry of racism is probably disheartening and distasteful to Obama. Perhaps he should say something.To which Knoller replied: i'm sure he would if asked since a former US pres made the comment.Whether a president who sees his country coming to a full rolling … [Read more...]

The ACORN Grows into a Mighty Mess

Regular readers know I don't ordinarily cover the big, sensationalist stories that go viral through the blogosphere, unless I feel I have something to contribute, so I haven't said much of anything about these shocking videos of ACORN workers advising an undercover "pimp" and "ho" as to how they can get housing, evade taxes and -most repellent- traffic in underage prostitutes brought in from Latin America.I had incorrectly and naively assumed that given the nature of the relationship between … [Read more...]

DNC uses Bush’s PHYSICAL for fodder?

Really...this is pathetic. When you have to use the report on the president's annual physical to give a shrill yell, throw hate darts and play politics, then you might as well just give it up, get back into the sandbox and stop even pretending that you are grown-ups.ATTENTION DEMOCRATS: If you want to be taken seriously - at all - in the next two elections, then you must learn appropriate responses. In this case, the appropriate response to good news about the president's health is … [Read more...]

PA Lt. Gov does not cover herself in glory

Rather she covers herself in something else. Michelle Malkin has the just-released (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) letter-of-apology from Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll to the family of Marine Sgt. Joseph Goodrich, whose funeral the Lt. Gov crashed before declaring "this (State of PA's) government is against this war..."Michelle writes: ...Knoll has no plans to make herself available for public comment about her obnoxious crashing of Sgt. Goodrich's funeral. She will not hold a press conference. She … [Read more...]

Sliced and Diced by a ‘stay-home’ mom!

I love this. Remember just yesterday, or the day before, I linked to a blog post about the value of educating women who plan to stay home and raise kids?Well, take a gander at this piece in the Chicago Tribune, written by "Meg Kreikemeier, a stay-at-home mom and a former analyst for CNA Insurance". Heh.For so long, Democrats have criticized Republicans as the party of the rich, and they still do when discussing tax cuts, budget deficits and Social Security. However, Republicans have now … [Read more...]

Playing the Catholic card AND the Gay Card?

I noticed this yesterday on Ann Althouse's blog and I was really hoping it would just go away, that we wouldn't have to see the Democrats and some on the left once again bring themselves to the edge of something truly ugly by playing the "gay, gay, gay" card. But I should have known better. And this time, the left is going to really out-do itself, by the way, because they're not only going to whisper "gay," as they do often, they're going to do it while playing the Catholic card. That's … [Read more...]
