I’m not sure that Ted Kennedy wants to use the Old Testament as legislative authority. Sen. Edward Kennedy (Mass.) was one of three Democratic senators last week offering biblical quotations to bolster their calls for comprehensive immigration reform. At a press conference that included Kennedy and Sens. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Ken Salazar (D-Colo.) along […]

Pelosi: To Hell with Womens' Rights

I hope the next time Nancy Pelosi stand up and brags about what a wonderful role model she is for women someone blows up this photograph to billboard size and stick it right behind her. After today, Nancy Pelosi has forever forfeited the ability to speak about equality for women without having everyone burst into […]

The Church of Global Warming has pocketed a new country: Belgium. The government of Belgium’s French-speaking region of Wallonia, which has a population of about 4 million, has approved a tax on barbequing, local media reported. French-speaking? The deuce you say! The story says that if you want to grill a steak or two outside, […]

Ralph Peters is ticked and from where I’m sitting, he has good reason. Here’s how he starts: April 3, 2007 — THE greatest shock from the Middle East this year hasn’t been terrorist ruthlessness or the latest Iranian tantrum. It’s that members of Britain’s Royal Marines wimped out in a matter of days and acquiesced […]

Yesterday, before the Nationals took the field I wrote this: Yep, the Nats are raw and unproven but they’re also filled with desire and optimism and a clear notion of what they can and can’t do. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them win a whole lot more than anyone suspects right now. Of course, […]

Holy Crap, but this is funny! I may have to reconsider my opinion of Alanis Morissette after watching that video. She pulled off a pitch-perfect parody that punctures the pretentious Pea precisely.

Tawfik Hamid has an article in today’s Opinion Journal that’s worth some attention. An excerpt: But indeed, there is much that is clearly wrong with the Islamic world. Women are stoned to death and undergo clitorectomies. Gays hang from the gallows under the approving eyes of the proponents of Shariah, the legal code of Islam. […]

Ah, Spring, when a young man’s fancy turns to ERA, WHIP, OBP, AVG, and RBI. Yep, it’s Opening Day, the most glorious day of the entire year. It’s the day when the dreams of millions of young boys (and guys who are getting up there who still remember when they were young boys) are played […]

On one hand, it’s worth listening to Henry Kissinger when he says we can’t win in Iraq, because he has experience in surrendering to an enemy who’d never managed to actually beat our military anywhere on the ground, ever. On the other hand, we might be better off noting how he defines “military victory” TOKYO: […]
