400 Billion Dollars…Just Gone

400 Billion Dollars…Just Gone

| June 26, 2005 | Reply

The Blue State Conservatives point us to the mind-boggling story that the Nigerian Dictator stole over 400 billion dollars in humanitarian aid. Four. Hundred. Billion. Dollars. I don’t wonder how he managed to steal that much money. Africa is replete with corrupt national leaders and has been as far back as one cares to remember. […]

Journalism Done Right

The Washington Post today has a wonderful piece of journalism called “A Tale of Nine Innings”. They sent eight reporters out to a Washington Nationals game, put them at eight different vantage points, and let them write. The results is a delightful melange that may, if you’ve been as disillusioned with professional baseball as I […]

How is it that a Democratic Senator giving a sermon from the pulpit of a church isn’t immediately pilloried for a First Amendment violation? I’m just curious here. By the way, read the sermon, too. I don’t agree with all of it, but I agree with a whole lot of it. Would that Senator Obama […]

The Anchoress, Christopher Hitchens, and a Camel

Today, The Anchoress gives Christopher Hitchens the love and reveals herself a lady of the highest order, too. I am a non-smoker. For that matter, I am an EX-smoker, which means I am truly one of those pains in the rear who wrinkes her nose at the smell of stale tobacco and asks her guests […]

The Love Column of E.J. Dionne

The Love Column of E.J. Dionne

It ought to be a requirement that before any columnt opines on religious issues, they take a basic equivalency test, just to be sure they know what they’re talking about. E.J. Dionne, based on his column today in the Washington Post would certainly have failed. Dionne’s column is a love-letter to the courageous Congressman David […]

I’ve said a couple times that it seems to me like far too many media outlets are not exactly on our side in this war we’re fighting. Today, I think I can show you an example of what I mean. I was reading this article about how the President and the Iraqi Prime Minister – […]

What Rove Said to the Conservatives

What Rove Said to the Conservatives

It occured to me, when I made my last post, that you may not know what Karl Rove said that has the left side of the country all atwitter. Here are his comments and here’s the section that’s ruffled the feathers. But perhaps the most important difference between conservatives and liberals can be found in […]

Rove vs Durbin in the Media.

So how do Karl Rove’s comments stack up against Dick Durbin’s comments in the media? Which comments are getting the front-page coverage? Which comments are getting newspaper ink? Rove wins, hands down. I wonder which excuse the MSM is going to use this time to dodge the charge of bias?

Maureen's Looking Better and Better

There is no doubt that the Maureen Dowd Gravitas Enhancement Program is running full tilt boogie today, thanks to an op-ed that simply must be read to be believed. It may not be, as Michelle Malkin put it, the stupidest op-ed ever, but it’s very, very close. It at least ought to run right up […]

Tell 'em a Hookah-Smoking Caterpillar has Given You the Call

You know it’s a good morning when you can read an article in praise of hookah bars in your Washington Post. I marvel that the article managed to make it to print without including one single mention of hashish or opium. Instead, hookas are seen throughout history as a social tool where happy people can […]
