Who Is the President’s Enemy? Hint, It’s Not The Guys Trying to Blow Stuff Up.

Who Is the President’s Enemy? Hint, It’s Not The Guys Trying to Blow Stuff Up.

Maybe I was wrong about the Obama administration’s willingess to respond with strength and speed to enemy attacks. My mistake was in assuming that the people the White House considers enemies are the same ones I do. For example, I think Islamists who want to kill Americans by the planeload are the enemy. The Obama […]

Rush Hospitalized; Prayers Welcome

News is in tonight that Rush Limbaugh was taken to a Honolulu hospital for chest pains. He is said to be in serious condition right now. There isn’t much more to the story, though if more is reported, I’ll update as the hour and situation warrant. Rush has always been pretty reticent to talk about […]

British women have very good taste. Kate Winslet has the celebrity body most desired by British women, a survey has found. The Oscar-winning actress scored 16 per cent of the vote, pipping equally shapely Kelly Brook to second place with 15 per cent. And skeletal stars Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss finished bottom of the […]

More on That Useless Commission and Rolling Heads

I want to draw your attention to a couple posts that amplify points I made in yesterday’s post on the SpeedoBomber and the utter ridiculousness of the 9/11 Commission and all Congressional hearings of the past eight years. Ed Morrissey asks the same question I asked, “How’s that 9/11 Commission reorganization working?”, and reaches the […]

There are weeks when I really need to do a lot of show prep for an episode of The Delivery This week was not one of them. Last night, the topic of discussion arrayed itself in front of me like a sumptuous meal, just begging me to dig in (listen, download, iTunes). I could easily […]

What on Earth Was That Whole 9/11 Commission For, Anyhow?

What on Earth Was That Whole 9/11 Commission For, Anyhow?

I distinctly remember Congress saying it was all over the whole “connecting the dots” thing just a couple or three years ago. Surely — surely! — the 9/11 Commission amounted to more than “Blame George W. Bush”, right? I mean, Jamie Gorelick wasn’t up there just for show and to do a nice little whitewashing […]

Instapundit linked to a fascinating article in Wired Magazine on success, mistakes, and how we pursue the answers to questions that vex us. The author, Jonah Lehrer, did a very good job of telling a couple entertaining stories, beginning with the tale of the two men who won the 1978 Nobel Prize for Physics and […]

Politicization? We’re Soaking In It!

It’s becoming increasingly more difficult to see Eric Holder’s Justice Department as anything but a purely political entity, not at all interested in applying the law equally. I hate thinking that but how else am I supposed to interpret what the DOJ has done with the case of the New Black Panthers? You might remember […]

I didn’t get to hear President Obama’s reluctant statement on the SpeedoBomber, but I read it here (via memeorandum) and I entirely agree with Dan Riehl. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more uninspired, bored, “Oh God how fast can I read this so I can go back outside and play” statement from this President […]
