The Chicago Tribune has a puff-piece today defending Senator Durbin. The headline? Dick Durbin’s passion ignites foes’ ire Yeah because that is what we find objectionable. Apparently the Tribune believes that we’d have no problem with Durbin has he compared our soldiers to genocidal madmen with a calm and dispassionate tone. I’d roll my eyes […]

I have a couple pieces up at The Blue State Conservatives, one on the increasing merging of the moonbat anti-Semites and the Democratic Party and one on a promising heart disease drug that’s tailored for blacks.

How Far We've Come

Fifty years ago, blacks in this country had to worry about being lynched, having to live a segregated life from whites, rampant discrimination, and fire hoses from police. Now they have to worry about a bust of King Tut in a museum portraying him as white. From Rosa Parks and a Birmingham jail to a […]

Well, okay. Juries screw up sometimes. This, though, seems like a really big screwup. In a case that tobacco law specialists say is one of the first of its kind in the nation, a Boston Housing Court jury ruled that a South Boston couple could be evicted from their rented water-view loft for heavy smoking, […]

Terri Schaivo Post Mortem.

The autopsy report on Terri Schaivo came out yesterday. I suppose that I should, since I wrote so freely and vociferously about her while she was being killed, say something now that her body has been examined. To be honest, though, there isn’t much I can say. The autopsy found much brain damage – not […]

This makes my blood boil. From James Taranto, here’s an excerpt from the Congressional Record given my Senator Dick Durbin, the second-ranking Democrat. When you read some of the graphic descriptions of what has occurred here [at Guantanamo Bay]–I almost hesitate to put them in the [Congressional] Record, and yet they have to be added […]

I think I’ve figured out the New York Times’ strategy while Maureen Dowd is on vacation – fill the editorial pages with columns so horrible that when she returns, she will appear grounded, stable, and factual. Stacy Schiff leads the Maureen Dowd Gravitas-Enhancement Program today with a column that scolds us for not trusting the […]

If you want an indictment of our national public school system, you never need to look any further than Washington, DC. Today, DC closed all of its schools because of heat that approached 100 degrees. Apparently, none of the school had air conditioning equal to the task. Here’s the real gem in the article, though.

The Anti-Downing Street Memo?

I’m just curious as to whether this story is going to get as much coverage as the Downing Street Memo? WASHINGTON, June 12 – A memorandum written by Prime Minister Tony Blair’s cabinet office in late July 2002 explicitly states that the Bush administration had made “no political decisions” to invade Iraq, but that American […]

Congratulations to Michelle Malkin, whose blog turns one year old today! I’ve been an admirer of Michelle’s for years and I’m proud to say that I was one of the early readers and blogrollers of her site. She is, as I’ve said before, one of the few “big time” writers and pundits who have started […]
