I Before E Except After Shut Up!

I Before E Except After Shut Up!

Death to another old mantra! LONDON – It’s a spelling mantra that generations of schoolchildren have learned — “i before e, except after c.” But new British government guidance tells teachers not to pass on the rule to students, because there are too many exceptions. The “Support For Spelling” document, which is being sent to […]

Neocons, Jews, and Revolutionaries. Oh, My!

Neocons, Jews, and Revolutionaries. Oh, My!

At some point in the last couple of years, the word “neocon” changed meaning for the left. It used to mean “member of a shadowy Jewish cabal that secretly runs the United States for Jewish purposes *wink wink*“. Now, it just seems to mean any foreign policy the leftist using it doesn’t like. And, oh […]

Despite Murder and Brutality, They Still March in Iran

Despite Murder and Brutality, They Still March in Iran

I’ve been watching what has been happening to the people of Iran this weekend and it hurts my heart. I get that that tyranny won’t unclench its fist unless it’s forced to do so and that doing so has a dear cost. Freedom certainly is not free; in fact, it is very expensive to attain. […]

Stacy McCain spent the day Thursday in and around Capitol Hill doing some actual reporting on what he’s dubbed “IG-Gate”. I’ve written about that growing scandal here and here and NTC News has been all over the story with the latest developments available here. His reporting work then has borne fruit in a piece for […]

Man Who Hit Handicapped Girl Found Not Guilty but Still Not Innocent

A year ago today, I wrote about a sawed-off little Truther weasel named German Talis who went to a speech to heckle Laura and Jenna Bush but who ended up getting arrested for assault on a handicapped teenaged girl. Well, Talis was recently in court on his assault charges and a New York Jury found […]

Is President Obama’s former Campaign Manager breaking the law? Dan Riehl says yes and he has a pretty good initial case. After speaking with political campaign email expert John Caldwell and receiving feedback from similar professional sources with deep experience in Anti-Spam legislation and affiliations with groups such as the Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial Email(CAUCE), […]

I’ve been watching from the sidelines as some of my favorite bloggers have taken turns swatting The Atlantic’s new “conservative” blogger, Conor Freidersdorf, like a beach ball at a Jimmy Buffet concert. If you’re interested in their posts, and I do recommend them, just to get a taste of Freidersdorf’s general writing style (if a […]

Hi! Billy Mays Here for Obamacare!

I really don’t know why the White House and ABC News are even trying to make the day-long Obamacare infomerical look like anything else. They’re not even trying to hide the bias. An analysis of contributions to the Obama and McCain campaign shows that ABC employees contributed more than $160,000 to the Obama campaign versus […]

Yesterday I asked if we were watching another Watergate growing right before our eyes. This morning, I woke to find the little scandal had risen like bread dough during the night (via memeorandum). Like a certain cowardly Great Dane might say, “Rut Roh, Robama!” Firing one Inspector General under suspicious circumstances is one thing, but […]

There’s a little scandal aborning in the White House that could become a real problem for the President. My guess is, as the days go by, the President is going to wish he never heard the name “Gerald Walpin”. You can get the short version of the story from Moe Lane, Michelle Malkin (via Ed […]
