July will mark the 18 month anniversary of the day the wicked Chimpy MacHitlerBurtonwas cast out of the White House by the twin blades of Hope and Change wielded by the Obamessiah. It was the third happiest day of Nancy Pelosi’s life (the second being the day she was selected Speaker, the first when she discovered […]

Democratic Hack to Haley: Can You Assure Your State You Aren’t A Lying Whore?

I have a very hard time believing that George Snuffleupagus, former Clinton administration and current ABC News political hack, would have asked a Democratic woman running for office a pair of questions as openly insulting as these. STEPHANOPOULOS: You did face a very, very tough campaign. I know South Carolina has a reputation for that. […]

Lyndsey here. If you hadn’t noticed, I’ve been out of pocket for the past few weeks. Mostly because it’s summer time in Alabama and my pool doesn’t have wi-fi and my office frowns upon bikinis and coconut rum. If I find a way to bring the two worlds together, my posts will probably get much more imaginative and abundant.

Helen Thomas announced her retirement today and I say good riddance to her. If we all can agree on nothing else, we can agree that we private citizens should ostracize, marginalize, and disempower bigots as much as we are able, not just this time but every time. Neither should we let them or their former […]

On Israeli Apartheid and Matters of Life and Death

On Israeli Apartheid and Matters of Life and Death

| June 6, 2010 | 1 Reply

Earlier today, one of my Twitter followers accused me of supporting South African-style apartheid because I staunchly and with few apologies defend the nation of Israel. This baffled me. Surely defending Israel’s right to exist as a nation does not mean that I support every move the nation makes, does it? To him, it does. […]

Living fossil Helen Thomas lurched forth from the murk of the tar pits where she lives to issue her solution on the current unrest in the Middle East. I regret that the video is so poor. Apparently, she was not quite up to screaming them from a nearby balcony in the original German. I suppose […]

You just knew it was only a matter of time before word of Jim Joyce’s blown call reached Hitler’s bunker. Sadly, the video is not embeddable, so you’ll have to click the link to get to it. Your time will not be wasted, though. Also, if you want another reasonable, but wrong, opinion on instant […]

I have been a baseball fan all my life. I’ve watched thousands of games and I tell you that I’ve never seen a worse call by an umpire than the call Jim Joyce made to rob the Detroit Tigers’ Armando Gallaraga of a perfect game tonight. If Joyce had made the right call — the […]

So far, the federal government has been worse than invisible in the Gulf of Mexico. Oh sure, the President flew in to deliver a big speech where he could pound the proverbial pulpit and swear eternal vengeance upon all the evidoers who befouled our pristine shores. Then he went on vacation and left Eric Holder in […]

I’m with Moe Lane. Let’s get Donald Berwick, President Obama’s nominee to run Medicare and Medicaid, in front of America to explain a few things. I look forward to putting Sir Donald under the glare of television cameras and inviting him to explain why he loves a system that is actively importing foreign doctors to cover […]
