What’s going on with the selective fear of religion. In other words, why are so many people opening up with both barrels on various Christian religions and remaining fearfully quiet about the brutalities of Islam? Eric Scheie has an answer that I think comes very close to the heart of the matter. There is another […]

Ive been following the story of Mark Steyn and the death of free speech in Canada for about a week now and I must say, it completely beggars belief. Melanie Phillips gives you the brief overlook of the story along with her impressions, which are worth your time. Details and thoughts after the jump.

Does this photo of Hillary Clinton change your opinion of her? Do you think it should? It was featured pretty prominently today on Matt Drudge’s site and is getting a little bit of play around the blogosphere. One blog even called it “The Most Significant Photo of 2007″. Rush even had a pretty solid segment […]

Big ups to Three Doors Down, who have made this stirring video in honor of and in service to our soldiers. These guys run in circles where they will lose business because of their openly patriotic stance. I’m not a fan of their music, but I know a couple folks who are, and I might […]

Every year, John Hawkins casts out his net to the blogosphere and pulls in votes for the year’s best and worst of the blogosphere. It’s a good place to find a blog or a columnist you might not have seen before and a better place to see who bloggers on the right revere and revile. […]

I haven’t followed the story of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman, who was convicted of corruption and is now doing seven years, but apparently there’s a sizeable contingent on the left side of the blogosphere spinning Yet Another Conspiracy Theory. This one, you’ll not be surprised, involves Karl Rove and a vast web of Rovian […]

Jonah Goldberg’s extensively-researched book on the historical cuddling between the left and fascism isn’t even out yet and already the leftist are having themselves a few nervous yuks. Shame they can’t be bothered to actually address the book on an intellectual level. Say what you will about Goldberg, but he’s not going to put his […]

One of the things I don’t do very much here, and I think it costs me traffic and readers sometimes, is post immediately when news breaks. I prefer to wait a little bit, to let the events catch up to the coverage, which usually runs way out in front of reality. That generally means that […]

Oh. Myyyyyyyy. Let’s just kick the number of movies I’m sure I’ll be seeing next year up to two. I wasn’t a huge fan of Batman Begins. I thought it was too cluttered and had too much Katie Holmes in it. It wasn’t a bad movie, but it seemed more a starting point than an […]
