A New Thanksgiving Tradition: “As God is My Witness…”

A New Thanksgiving Tradition: “As God is My Witness…”

Every holiday ought to have its entertainment traditions, and I think it’s time we added a new one to Thanksgiving. Sure, we have football, but what of the holiday specials? Christmas has all the Rankin/Bass specials (Frosty the Snowman, The Year Without A Santa Claus, etc.) and there’s always the Grinch. But what does Thanksgiving, […]

How do you deal with the Thanksgiving Captain Comedown? It helps if you have a pilgrim around with a handy musket. Alternately, having Bill Whittle at the table to deliver the correct historical smackdown helps. If you don’t have either of those readily available, you can probably find some helpful retorts to the progressive “America […]

You might remember the story of Bill Sparkman, the part-time census worker the evil and vicious right-wing killed in rural Kentucky. Okay, we didn’t all kill him. We just created a…wait, how did the left-wing blogosphere put it? Ah, yes. We “hatemongers” “created an impression that Census employees are terrifying” and our “unhinged hostility to […]

When I Said I Wanted a Gonzo Music Video, I Didn’t Mean It Literally

I saw this video getting some buzz on Twitter, but I wanted to hold it until later today, so it would get maximum exposure at The Shack without other posts bumping it down the page. How good is this video? It got the Allapundit half-smile of approval, which would amount to a full-on standing ovation […]

I spent a good amount of time on Climateapalooza (hey, it’s better than Climategate or Climatequiddick) in today’s episode of The Delivery, but there’s one point I want to cover in a little more detail. I also want to share a couple very good articles on the situation that do a very good job of […]

Episode 13 of The Delivery is ready to roll. You can get it from the usual places using the usual methods, as your whim takes you. This episode could have easily gone two hours. I had plenty of material that I didn’t even begin to touch — Glenn Beck’s crazy third party scheming (though, fortunately, […]

Back in the Days of Indoor Smoking and Skinny Ties, They Made Jazz Like This

It’s the day before Thanksgiving. Most folks are home for the day, making ready for the celebration tomorrow, so how about a little jazz to help? Trane. Miles. New York, 1959. The song is “So What”. You can almost smell the cigarette smoke in the air and the slight must from the studio, can’t you? […]

Remember “It’s Not the Crime; It’s the Cover-Up”? The President Doesn’t

You know the old saying that it’s not the crime that really gets you, but the cover-up? I’ve a feeling that someone should have hipped the Obama administration to that a couple of months ago. Just hours after Sen. Charles Grassley and Rep. Darrell Issa released a report Friday on their investigation into the abrupt […]

The President, in his everlasting quest to discover a strategy for our military in Afghanistan, has decided to call yet another meeting of his war council, perhaps on the off chance that one of them has it tucked in their pocket or stuck to the bottom of their shoe. We might possibly find out if […]

This is starting to look awfully familiar: We’re in the middle of an extended economic “malaise”. Our President, hailed for his pleasant demeanor and ability to put people at ease is getting the back of the hand from friends and enemies alike (via memeorandum). The Islamist tyrants in Iran answer our weak pleas for diplomacy […]
