Monique Stuart cuts to the very quick of the corruption game in Congress. It should be illegal for our representatives to use our tax dollars to build things and then slap their own name onto it. It’s disgusting. Not that I expect much better from a man who falsley accused our marines of a massacre […]

To borrow a gimmick from Glenn Reynolds, they told me when George Bush was elected that we’d have a separate set of rules for white people and black people. And they were right! With the goal of creating a “restorative school culture and climate” that conveys a “sense of belonging to all students,” the board […]

You’ll never guess what happened after the premiere of Michael Moore’s latest anti-intellectual screed Captalism: A Love Story. Following the Premiere, Esquire shuttles many of the attendees straight down to SoHo to the opening of The Esquire Apartment – a fully decadent penthouse where every square inch is paid for by a luxury sponsor. Hot […]

I give Tom DeLay all the credit in the world. It takes an enormous amount of confidence (and a real sense of self-deprecation) to get on national television, light-years outside your comfort zone, and subject yourself to the enormous buckets full of crap you know are going to get thrown your way. But, you know, […]

Did the Obama administration use the National Endowment for the Arts to try to gin up some support for health care and cap and trade in a recent conference call? It surely looks like it. And if that’s the case, then the NEA appears to have violated the Hatch Act that prohibits government employees from […]

Skewing the Results

There are plenty of appropriate outfits to wear at a posthumous Medal of Honor ceremony. The dress equivalent of a Jackson Pollock painting and bright green “kitten” heels is not one of them.

I’m not sure where Eric Boehlert learned his history, but whichever school it was should demand that he stop embarrassing them. A President was killed the last time right-wing hatred ran wild like this That being John F. Kennedy, who was gunned down in Dallas, of course. I’ve been thinking a lot of Kennedy and […]

In all the blog posts that have been written about the ACORN scandal that is growing faster than a population of Tribbles on an Everest of triticale, no one has written a pair of lines better than the ones Smitty wrote in his Weekly Rule 2 Mega-Roundup.
