Gore Vidal is Still a Self-Important Punk

Gore Vidal is Still a Self-Important Punk

I was going to write a long and vituperative response to this Gore Vidal interview in which he pulls his skirts up around his knocking knees and squeals about the United States becoming a military dictatorship because we’re all ignorant hicks, but I believe I’ll answer his puling by adapting one of my favorite quotes […]

Dear Lord, the left must be in Code Yellow Pants-Soiling Mode right now. Sarah Palin’s book Going Rogue: An American Life is the top seller on both Amazon and Barnes and Noble seven weeks before its release date and barely two days after the release date was announced. Heck, it’s so far from hitting the […]

Obama Sudan Envoy: Give the Genocidal Maniacs in the Sudan a Cookie!

Our envoy to the Sudan, retired Air Force Maj. Gen. J. Scott Gration, is a gullible fool if this report is anything close to true. Still, at the end of the visit, Gration maintained a strikingly different perspective. He had seen signs of goodwill from the government of President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, he said, and […]

I jut got off the phone with Stacy McCain who was practically projecting himself through my cell phone, he was so excited. In his investigations in Manchester, KY and environs he met the self-described “Huddle House Killer”. Her name is Kelsee Brown, she’s 19-years old and, if you read this story by the Associated Press, […]

Now can we admit that the President has built a weird cult of personality around him? Take a gander at this video, where the assembled health care activists from Obama’s first community organizing effort in Chicago pray to the President to give them what they want and to deliver them from their enemies. That goes […]

Michelle Obama is Ready to Fight, but Not for Anything Particularly Important

Guess what Michelle Obama was talking about? “The gloves are off!” the First Lady declared with a smile. She spoke with a handful of reporters in the State Dining room at White House, and relayed a story from last weekend’s G20 Summit in Pittsburgh. At the spouses dinner she hosted, she said she greeted the […]

Another urgent threat to global security is the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan. This is the central front in our enduring struggle against terrorism and extremism. There, as in the Middle East, we must understand that we cannot deal with our problems in isolation. … Going forward, we must set clear priorities in pursuit […]

I just got off the phone with Stacy McCain, who has arrived in Manchester, KY, which is in Clay County near the center of the Sparkman murder investigation. This is his initial impression of the town, which to read the prevailing commentary about the area, is just stinking with violent anti-government maniacs. “Manchester is nothing […]

As I write this, Stacy McCain is somewhere west of Fairmont, W.Va., heading toward Clay County, KY to commit acts of journalism related to the apparent murder of Bill Sparkman. He’s probably traveling light — a bottle of Mad Dog and a carton of Winstons in the seat next to him and Steppenwolf blasting from […]

This morning, at the AIP blog, I wrote about how the Democrats don’t really believe your money belongs to you. It’s all grist for their mill and they’ll let you keep what they think you should keep and not a penny more. That philosophy doesn’t stop at the money you earn, though. Your children aren’t […]
