The Men Who Slimed McCain

The Men Who Slimed McCain

This is getting way out of hand. Yet another Obama supporter is taking pretty nasty shots at John McCain’s military career and I”m getting really freaking tired of it. Here’s Rand Beers, who we last saw advising John “Global Test” Kerry. Sadly, Sen. McCain was not available during those times, and I say that with […]

Better Buy a Bigger Car Seat, Parents, or the State Will Get You

This new law raises my hackles. In Maryland, every child riding in a car 8 years old or younger (Unless they weigh more than 65 pounds and are taller than 4’9″) must ride in a car seat. The overt reason the government here gives is the standard “It’s for the children” as if there is […]

2008 Olympics: Now Mostly Riot-Free!

Is there some really compelling reason that the IOC had to grant the Olympics to a tyranny as unrepentantly repressive as that of China? With authorities eager to present China as a harmonious nation during the August Games, the government has ordered local officials to defuse petition campaigns by discontented citizens and to prevent “mass […]

Yes, Rick, John Aravosis, the piece of human toe fungus that runs AMERICAblog is a complete and utter churl. But he’s much-beloved by the left and he does seem to get the attention of the big voices on the progressive side of the aisle so I’m guessing they’re going to back his play. I remember […]

Bolton Speaks on North Korea. His Moustacheness is Not Pleased.

John Bolton and his moustache effrayant have weighed in on our deal with the North Koreans and is quite disappointed. And when I say disappointed, I mean in the way that Darth Vader was disappointed with Admiral Ozzel. I don’t entirely agree with Ambassador Bolton. He makes several good points and I don’t dismiss any […]

General Clark Did a Dumb, Dumb Thing.

Did Wesley Clark really just hock a giant loogie all over John McCain’s leadership qualifications based on his military record? Seriously, former General Clark, who once ran entirely on his military record, has to have lost his ever-loving mind if he’s willing to say this on national television: I don’t think getting in a fighter […]

If you were one of the millions of Americans planning on spending part of your Fourth of July outside grilling burgers and dogs, maybe having some fried chicken, drinking beer or soda or sweet tea, and generally enjoying your weekend, Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper just wants you to know that you’re doing it wrong. And […]

Is the Barack Obama campaign a giant cult of personality? No way! Who could say such a silly thing? The punch bowl opens Monday morning, I hear.

John McCain Doesn't Know How Much Gas Costs. Get Out the Pitchforks! (UPDATE: Guess What? He Didn't Say That At All.)

John McCain Doesn't Know How Much Gas Costs. Get Out the Pitchforks! (UPDATE: Guess What? He Didn't Say That At All.)

Oh good lord. Apparently, John McCain says that he doesn’t know what the price of gas is and that he doesn’t see how it matters whether he does or not. Of course, it doesn’t matter one bit. You don’t need to know what gas costs to know that it’s far higher than it should be. […]

The Election, Lonesome Dove Style

The Election, Lonesome Dove Style

I’m not as much of a fan of Lonesome Dove as see-dubya, but his comparison between the hapless goer-along Jake Spoon and Barack Obama is a pretty good one. I’m reminded of a couple quotes from an older literary source on the subject of friends and associations. Make no friendship with an angry man; and […]
