Palin's Pipeline Gets Last Laugh?

With the countless words being written about David Letterman's foolish, boorish and uncalled for "jokes" about Sarah ("slutty flight attendant") Palin and her daughter Bristol (who "did get knocked up" after all, and so deserves jokes implying she is promiscuous and a prostitute by the hypocritical puritans on the left), very little is being written about Sarah Palin's pipeline.Jim Geraghty tweeted it first and writes:Back in March, I took a look at a Portfolio article on Alaska governor … [Read more...]

Lileks on Letterman on Palin – UPDATED

If you have missed it, the old rule that you don't go after a politicians kids (which has been strongly, and correctly, in place under all Democrat presidents, and was even sometimes practiced about the Bush-twins) does not apply to Sarah Palin, and has never applied to Sarah Palin. You may get nagged at for observing that Michelle Obama looks like she is angry, but it's "funny pop-culture-coolness" to suggest that Sarah Palin (who is a stoopit hick, afterall) looks "like a slutty flight … [Read more...]

Why Susan Boyle matters so much

It's not because of her magnificent voice, although that gift from God is happily now in our awareness.It's because it should not have taken that exposition for people to think well of her.Got this from Deacon Greg and just loved it; it really speaks to our materialism and our short-sightedness. It's a good scolding we all could stand to hear, in the worldly world:Susan is a reminder that it's time we all looked a little deeper. She has lived an obscure but important life. She has been a … [Read more...]

The $13 a week stimulus – UPDATED

Hey, $13 dollars is $13, I guess. In January that falls to $8.Here is our 800 billion dollar stimulus mostly-spending bill we must see passed, and we must gratefully accept as the only possible solution to our "catastrophic" problems and our growing malaise. The ONLY solution.This other one, over here, brought up by another Democrat? Ignored. Just ignored.I just have one thing to ask:What does Michelle Obama suggest we do - how we will stimulate the economy with our $13?As I … [Read more...]

Some questions from the mailbag

Q: Anchoress, I notice you're writing a lot about Advent and nothing about politics.A: Well, you're very observant! I decided after the election - actually a few weeks before the election, but by then I was in the circuit and had to see it through, so to speak - that I would write about politics only where it intersects with religion. I didn't like myself writing about politics and I frankly didn't like the tones being sounded from the right in my email. Also, Advent is just always … [Read more...]

Christians & Gays & Proposition 8

My latest is up at Pajamas Media - my usual deathless pearls about the need for gays to man-up and act like citizens working within the confines of real democracy, and the need for Christians to find a better way to befriend them, and the past-due need for the churches to protect themselves from the litigation we all know is coming their way.An Excerpt:The Christians may have unintentionally come off as condescending. We may presume that they would not want a crowd of gays meeting on their … [Read more...]

Remember the Panhandle!

In 2000, the press declared the Florida polling places closed an hour before the precincts in the Panhandle - which runs at Central, not Eastern time - had closed.Thanks to that error - made over, and over, by every news outlet (hard to believe none of them understood about the panhandle, but seems they did not) - thousands of people, thinking the polls closed, may not have voted. Had they voted, the margin of victory in Florida might not have been so slim (and yes, it was a victory for Bush, … [Read more...]

No Coal Power, No Questions in Obamaland – UPDATED

I don't know why the McCain camp is not running constant ads - at least in PA and Virginia, highlighting Obama's admission that - given the opportunity - he'll bankrupt any new coal plants.The press, of course, is mum. As we see with the LA Times, which arrogantly will release neither tape nor transcript of Obama speaking at an Israel-bashing event (can you just imagine how quickly they'd deliver same were John McCain speaking instead), they have no interest in actually covering anything … [Read more...]

Vote fraud: The ACORN Breakdown

A few weeks ago, I emailed Jim at Gateway Pundit, who I recall having what seemed like hundreds of links to past ACORN bad-behavior, in terms of voter registration fraud, voter intimidation, vote supression (tire slashing on election day) and more, and I said, "you should put together one large post that has ALL of your ACORN links."He wrote back that it sounded like a good idea, and now he has an approximation of that up at Pajamas Media. I think he has even more links but had no more room … [Read more...]
