Episode 44 is a good one. I know I’ve said that before of other episodes (because it’s true!) but if I had to put together a “best of” block of shows, this one would definitely be in the mix. Chris Muir, cartoonist extraordinaire, joins me in the top half of the show for a little […]

Thanks to a summer thunderstorm that left me bereft of electrical service, I couldn’t record The Delivery last night. Fortunately, SMP Mike and my scheduled guests are all available tonight, so the show will take off right about 9:30 PM (a few minutes before, if you don’t mind a little mood music and host goofing […]

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., recently blamed Bush appointees who “burrowed in” at the Minerals Management Service for the regulatory failures that led to the Deepwater Horizon disaster. But as it turns out, not one of the officials responsible […]

I almost didn’t get Episode 43 made. There was an unfortunate keyboard incident that left me without the ability to use the spacebar or type the letters V, B, or M (among others). I couldn’t well do “The Deli_ery with Ji__ie _ise”, so I had to scramble for a backup on which I could run […]

Well, wouldn’t this make for an interesting 2011 (via allahpundit’s Twitter feed)? Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff, is expected to leave his job later this year after growing tired of the “idealism” of Barack Obama’s inner circle.

President Obama, May 26, 2010: And let me reiterate:  We will not rest until this well is shut, the environment is repaired, and the cleanup is complete. President Obama, May 27, 2010: And I know that doesn’t lessen the enormous sense of anger and frustration felt by people on the Gulf and so many Americans. […]

Rule of law? Whatever on Earth is that? A federal judge in Washington has dismissed the wrongful-termination lawsuit filed by Gerald Walpin, the AmeriCorps inspector general who was fired last year by President Obama. And not just dismissed; if the decision by U.S. District Judge Richard Roberts stands, in the future the White House will […]

A couple days ago, one of my left-wing commenters too umbrage with my idea that the President stop treating Coast Guard Commandant Thad Allen like a “fierce advocate” and start treating him like a military commander with a distinct chain of command. The commenter in question claimed that Allen wasn’t a military commander (heh) but […]
