China is taking a winter beating and things are getting really bad there. Chinese authorities have ordered urgent measures to be put in place to fight nationwide transport chaos caused by severe weather conditions. Ice and snowfall caused power cuts that left 100,000 people stranded at train stations in southern China on Sunday. Forecasters predict […]

The State of the Trough Address Preview

The State of the Trough Address Preview

| January 28, 2008 | Reply

I’m not planning on live-blogging the State of the Union address tonight. A boilerplate spenderiffic speech that panders to every one with their hands out looking for a chunk of my money doesn’t mix well with a 12-hour work day and a couple hours worth of errand-running. I’m whipped and in no temper to deal […]

Guys? Guys? The word “rejigger” is not a racial slur. It doesn’t originate from a racial slur. When you rejigger something, you give it a good shake. The word probably comes from the word “jigger”, which is a machine that…well…gives something a good shake. That paint-mixing machine at the local Sherwin Williams could probably be […]

Bill Quick has an interesting idea come election day that might be worth a shot. He says that we disaffected Republicans should write in Fred Thompson on our ballots. His reasoning is pretty good: They have to learn that if they want conservative votes, they have to nominate candidates conservatives would want to vote for. […]

What is Wrong with Dan Snyder?

What in the world is Dan Snyder doing? Just a few weeks after saying the word “consistency” approximately seven bazillion times in his press conference after Joe Gibbs resigned as head coach, he’s released Gregg Williams and Al Saunders. That, folks was a stupid move that’s going to make a lot of fans, who would […]

Obama Routs Clinton in SC

Obama Routs Clinton in SC

Well, tonight’s Barak Obama shellacking of Hillary Clinton ought to make things really interesting for the Democrats. It looks like the Clinton’s strategy of “remind everyone that Obama’s black” didn’t work so well in a state with a ton of black Democratic voters. I wonder what they have planned to make up the ground they […]

Is The Left Finally Saying "Enough"?

Is The Left Finally Saying "Enough"?

| January 26, 2008 | Reply

It looks like the left is slowly waking up and finding out that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been using them for fifteen years. Yeah. I almost feel bad for them, except that I’ve treated the left (at least when it comes to the Clintons) like the next door neighbor whose husband abuses her. After […]

Oh the story of John McCain and his open border-loving crew just gets better and better. Michelle Malkin is putting the pieces together and the picture they’re making is an ugly and dangerous one. One excerpt: The Reform Institute is a tax-exempt, supposedly independent 501(c)(3) group, as Ed Morrissey noted two years ago, ‚Äúthat employs […]

So it’s endorsement time at the New York Times and, after rattling their Magic 8-Balls and asking the piercing questions such as which Republican doesn’t eat babies and small puppies and which Republican doesn’t make them projectile vomit at the mere sound of his name, the vaunted Times editorial board has bravely gone out on […]

It appears that Monday’s big foreign stock market plummet didn’t come because of fears of a US recession. The news now is that a French company, acting on the revelation that one of its traders committed a 7 billion dollar fraud, started bailing out of all its stock positions unknown to most of the world, […]
