Ed Morrissey over at his tony new digs highlights a USA Today Op-Ed that asks the question: “Democrats promise a lot, but who will pay the bill?” Isn’t this the same question we always ask about Democrats? The editorial says that both Clinton and Obama have proposed about a bazillion dollars of brand-new spending and […]

Snow cover over North America and much of Siberia, Mongolia and China is greater than at any time since 1966. The U.S. National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) reported that many American cities and towns suffered record cold temperatures […]

Here’s a story I found interesting, on a couple levels. Canadian geologists say they can shed light on how a vast lake, trapped under the ice sheet that once smothered much of North America, drained into the sea, an event that cooled Earth’s climate for hundreds of years. According to the article, this happened about […]

I saw this story last night about “Obamacans” and nearly wrote a bit on it, but I decided to wait until morning and I’m glad I did. Obamacans, by the way, are those little ceramic dishes in which you make crème brûlée, or those little egg custard desserts…no…wait. Those are ramekins. Obamacans are Republicans who […]

The guys at the Politico seem baffled, in an objective news-writer sort of way, about why conservatives seem to be savaging the New York Times for its story about John McCain. Their confusion is made worse by their not knowing what the heck they’re talking about. Take this, for example: Some of the loudest voices […]

Prediction fulfilled. Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell and Attorney General Michael B.
