You know, some stories only need one paragraph. HAYWARD, Calif. — A man who spent five hours naked and stuck in the chimney of his stepmother’s home was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of drugs, police said. The rest of the story is just gravy after that.

Well, this strikes me as no surprise whatsoever. Daily Kos: 9/11 Is, Like, Soooo 2001 He thinks, as Dave might say, “it’s old.” And his readers agree that they, too, are “over” 9/11. Although I kind of think they were “over” it before they started pulling bodies out of the wreckage. You know, the first […]

I got your fearmongering right here. I’ve said a fair piece about the global warming issue, and I’m sure that I will say a fair bit more. What strikes me about the entire debate is that folks like Al Gore are so easily fact-checked into irrelevance yet always find gullible marks to give them more […]

I’m going to ask a question in a moment that you might not take as serious, but it will be. Before the question, a bit of setup. Michelle Malkin, writing about a group of thugs that ran some military recruiters off a California college campus, posted some personal contact information about some organizers of that […]

Time's Ten Best Senators? Sure….if You Love, Love, Love Them Liberals!

Time Magazine has listed it’s Ten Best Senators. I’m hardly surprised that of that list, there is one conservative, one solidly in the center-right, and eight who are pretty staunchly liberal for their party. Here’s the list: * Thad Cochran * Kent Conrad * Dick Durbin * Ted Kennedy * Jon Kyl * Carl Levin […]

It would behoove noted Bush-hater, prevaricator, and omnipresent pundit Katrina van den Heuvel not to ask stupid questions.

Just for the record, Britt Hume is my favorite newsman. He is, by far, the most evenhanded anchors I’ve seen on television in some time. Despite his obvious political leanings, he doesn’t often let them slip into his reports, holding them back for the panel discussions that happen at the end of his shows (and […]

It’s really sad when your son gets all indoctrinated into loving America isn’t it? And don’t you just hate it when you find out that nice people, who are enthusiastic devoted teachers, are evangelical Christians? And isn’t it just the pits when folks might think a bit less of you because you ran off to […]

The episode where you can catch me matching my brain against two other very smart people is Friday, April 21st. Check your local listings, as they say. I’ll spend a bit of time each […]

Alleluia! “He is not here: for He is risen, as he said. Those words are, I believe, the most momentous ever spoken in the history of man. They are the words that secured eternal life for anyone willing to accept God’s awesome gift. They are the words that fulfilled dozens of prophesies, including Jesus’ very […]
