Barack and Hitchcock – Creating the Same Illusions

Barack and Hitchcock – Creating the Same Illusions

“Obama says his ears too big for Rushmore” He did express curiosity about the filming of a chase scene in “North by Northwest,” Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 classic starring Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint that included a death-defying scramble over Rushmore’s presidential faces. “How did they get up there in the first place?” he asked […]

The Scripps Kind Of National Spelling Bee

The Scripps Kind Of National Spelling Bee

Michelle Malkin is perhaps the only avid watcher of the Scripps National Spelling Bee I know. Not that it’s not a worthy endeavor. Smart kids being smart is something we should all encourage but it’s just not my kind of television. I guess perhaps I should watch more, except that I’m the kind of student […]

Barack Obama has yet to visit Iraq. That is a remarkable thing to say about a major Presidential candidate this late in the election season. John McCain offered to put together a joint trip so they could both go and meet with General Petraeus and talk to some of our soldiers there, but Obama refused. […]

Both Hot Air and The Weekly Standard noted the tip received by Kevin Aylward that a high honcho in the McCain campaign had made a very quiet trip to Alaska. They both conjecture that this means Johnny Mac is seriously looking at Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as a VP candidate. I’ll tell you this. If […]

We have lost another great, great performer. LOS ANGELES — Harvey Korman, the tall, versatile comedian who won four Emmys for his outrageously funny contributions to “The Carol Burnett Show” and was seen to hilarious effect on the big screen in “Blazing Saddles,” died Thursday. He was 81. Korman died at UCLA Medical Center after […]

Fear the Stache, Leftist Scum!

This, without a doubt, is my favorite quote of the day, maybe even the whole week. Meanwhile, old-school moonbat extraordinaire George Monbiot attempted quite possibly the stupidest publicity stunt ever: a citizen’s arrest of John Bolton in Britain. Police led Monbiot away before John Bolton’s moustache could ensnare him and pull him apart like crazy-flavored […]

Wow, does Michelle Obama really believe what she said at a campaign stop today? Fear is the reason this country is where it is today. Fear is a useless emotion. Don’t ever make decisions based on fear. Make decisions based on hope and possibility. Make decisions based on what should happen, not what shouldn’t. Don’t […]

What's the Difference Between Scott McClellan and Judas Iscariot?

Judas didn’t lie about Jesus when he sold him out. I didn’t really plan to write very much about former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan the new unquestioned darling of the Bush-hating left. He’s doing the MSM victory tour with his head held in clean moral triumph though his soul is wracked sore because […]
