Jimmy Carter Takes the "Useful" out of "Useful Idiot"

Jimmy Carter Takes the "Useful" out of "Useful Idiot"

You know what really bugs me? All those terrorists out there who have no defense against the legitimate armies who are doing their best to prevent the Islamist thugs from blowing up bombs in schoolyards and roadside cafes. No, wait. That’s not what bugs me. That’s what bugs International Thug-Emabler in Chief Jimmy Carter. TEL […]

This seems presumptuous, bordering on the arrogant, to me, but I could be wrong. President-elect Obama will be sworn into office with his hand on the same Bible that President Abraham Lincoln used in 1861. The decision is consistent with Obama’s Lincoln theme as he prepares to become the 44th president of the United States. […]

What are three things guaranteed to happen in any Federal government program? Waste, lack of accountability, and did I mention waste? One of the reasons I strongly opposed the TARP bailout program is because the general panic from the Secretary of the Treasury and Congressional Democrats reminded me of someone who sees a fire and […]

More Would-Be Islamist Murderers Headed to Jail

I remember when these guys were first arrested. The going story then was that they really weren’t terribly serious about what they were doing, that they were just a bunch of guys running around in the woods playing jihadis. Most stories that I remember downplayed that they were trying very hard to score automatic weapons […]

Merry Life Day! It's the Star Wars Holiday Special!

It just wouldn’t be Christmas without a post about what is unquestionably most egregious act of egotistical marketing ever foisted on an unsuspecting holiday. It featured a stable of otherwise outstanding acting talent saddled with a Bruce Vilanch script that could have been written by a team of drunken freshman drama students. It has musical […]

I don’t think it’s controversial to say that the UAW has been a major cause for the slow collapse of the Big Three automakers. Eric Peters, writing in the American Spectator, apparently does, and he attacks the subject with such vigor that he’s left a fact or two on the side of the road in […]

Why Chik-fil-A is Closed on Sundays and an Ode to Delicious Food

I admit, I’m in love with everything edible that issues forth from that magnificent eatery knows as Chik-fil-A. It is, quite simply, the finest fast-food restaurant in the known universe and the most scrumptious item on its menu is the sweet tea. No restaurant I have ever patronized gets sweet tea like Chik-fil-A does. It […]

Conservative of the Year, Sarah Palin

Conservative of the Year, Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin: Conservative of the Year? Yeah, sounds about right to me. Ann Coulter, who wrote the story, is as funny as she’s ever been and deserves a read somewhere where you can laugh out loud without disturbing anyone. The interview with Palin is worth a read also. Stacy McCain pulled out one of the […]

The SEIU's Sweet Vote-Buying Racket

As it happens, union money can buy a whole lot of political influence. This isn’t exactly a closely-guarded secret. What I don’t think is well-enough known is that one of the biggest influence-peddling unions is the one that covers state and municipal employees as well as home-care workers who aren’t government employees but who are […]

Who Caused that Mortgage Mess Again?

Michelle Malkin is very quotable today. If you’re a conservative writer who dares to point out the downside of government policies that loosened lending standards for first-time minority homebuyers, you’re a RAAAACIST… But if you’re the New York Times wanting to point out how George W. Bush’s minority home ownership pandering is responsible for the […]
