Victor David Hanson muses and I have a bit of an answer.

Aleem went to the Pakistani Embassy in the District, where he executed a written document that asserted he was […]

Today’s feature op-ed in the USA Today is asking why it took the MSM a whole year to report on Barack Obama’s racist anti-American friend Jeremiah Wright. It’s really cute to see a journalist look at his fellow journalists with that gleam of idealism in his eye and ask, with a straight face, how they […]

One of the great things about blogging, at least on the right, is that you can heartily agree with someone one hour and bitterly disagree with them the next. As much as I often agree with Ed Morrissey, I’m afraid on the subject of John McCain and his storied anger, we’re going to bitterly disagree. […]

Behold the power of the Obamessiah to change history! The other side can label and name-call all they want, but I trust the American people to recognize that it is not surrender to end the war in Iraq so that we can rebuild our military and go after Al Qaida’s leaders. I trust the American […]

Have you gotten the Moms in your life something special? Me neither. My Mom is hard to shop for and I’m usually stuck late because I can’t decide what to get her. If you’re in the same boat as me, let me toss out a couple recommendations. Amazon has a few pretty good gift ideas. […]

John McCain, on Meet the Press, January 27, 2008: TIM RUSSERT: If the Senate passed your bill, S-1433, the McCain-Kennedy immigration bill, would you as president sign it? JOHN MCCAIN: Yeah, but the lesson is that it isn’t going to come, it isn’t going to come. The lesson is they want the borders secured first. […]

Mark Krikorian is wrong, wrong, wrong. Two things about Laura Bush’s official White House briefing room statement on the “inept” response by the Burmese government to the recent cyclone: 1. It’s absolutely none of our business. 2. What the heck is the president’s wife doing making U.S. foreign policy?! The cult of the presidency, as […]

Do your best to ignore the blatant bias in this AP article and just take away from it the point that John McCain hasn’t exactly given up trying to court conservatives. He’s chasing us down on something he knows matters to us a great deal: federal judges. He even pressed his old buddy Fred Thompson, […]

Pelosi Breaks More Promises, Ho Hum

Pelosi Breaks More Promises, Ho Hum

Nancy Pelosi, typical lying politician. Considering she has already driven Congress’ approval ratings below that of the President, which pretty much assures that she’ll be known as the worst Speaker of the House ever. She’s broken every campaing promise she made on her party’s behalf. The Democrats have proven they can’t run Congress any better […]
