John Kerry Says Soldiers Just Aren't That Smart

What might the Democratic Party think of your friends and family who serve in the military today? Well, let’s hear from their 2004 nominee for President – the guy for whom almost half of the country voted – John Kerry. Kerry then told the students that if they were able to navigate the education system, […]

You might think that if you were a District Attorney who was prosecuting a rape care that had drawn national attention and had you making definitive statements about the case in the international media you would have a pretty good handle on the facts of the case. Heck, you might even be so thoroughly involved […]

The way CNN starts this story, you’d almost think they were surprised: Most Americans do not believe the Bush administration has gone too far in restricting civil liberties as part of the war on terror, a new CNN poll released Thursday suggests. I imagine that CNN is a bit non-plussed about how it’s five-year “the […]

Well, leave it to those wacky Muslims extremists, who, we are told, exist way out on the fringes of Islamic thought in no way indicative of Islam as a whole Muslim nutters to help us figure out who is really at fault when a woman is raped. If the woman is in her boudoir, in […]

Dragon Magazine is 30 years old today. That means absolutely nothing to most of you. To a few, though, I’m guessing your reaction was “has it been that long”? Yep. Thirty years, which is a long time for a magazine to keep chugging along. I admit, it’s been some time since I’ve read a Dragon, […]

My Beloved Redskins really do stink on toast. I’m willing to say that, right now, that Washington DC is home to the worst football team in the NFL. That’s tough to say, not only because I’m a lifelong fan, but because there is no real reason at all the team should be so very bad. […]

Oh my dear sweet holy crapweasel. I have watched this week’s Battlestar Galactica and I have not seen so much pure, concentrated awesome in one hour of dramatic television show ever, in my entire life. Never. Ever. I actually, at two separate points, cranked both fists into the air and screamed, “Yes! Yes!! YES!!!”, then […]

Just a couple things of note here without much commentary. First, it looks like it was a Democratic staffer who decided to give bits of classified information from the National Intelligence Estimate to the New York Times (via Tigerhawk). Second, it appears that CNN has not only noticed that al-Qaeda has a plan for using […]

Here’s some great Watcher’s Council action, from the September 22nd contest. Since I’ve been remiss (again) in keeping track of all the contests and posting the results quickly, I’m going to post the whole pile of links.

One of the reasons I love reading Jay Nordlinger’s Impromptus columns is that he always seems to find interesting little nuggets that seem to get lost in the general roar of the hourly news cycle. It’s like he dives into a humungous rock tumbler dryer every now and again and comes out with priceless stones […]
