I got your post-racial politician right here. Allen West is a formidable man. Do not be surprised, even a tiny bit, if you see him make a serious run for the White House in 2016 should the GOP fail to take it in 2020 2012. I do not doubt that he will be a substantial figure […]

On January 23, 2010, President Obama made a solemn pinky promise with America to protect us from “special interests” that would turn this wonderful country into, well, something really awful.

Lest you think that the life of a JournoLister consisted solely of trying to fix the election for Barack Obama, attacking Sarah Palin to help Barack Obama, rooting for Rush Limbaugh to die, and cheering the election of Barack Obama with slightly less dignity than a bunch of 14 year old girls backstage as a […]

I’m pleased to see that The Daily Caller is finally living up to its hype. Today, it published a devastating story that shows how the 400-member JournoList conspired to spike the story that Barack Obama’s spiritual mentor is an America-hating bigot. For those of you who have not heard of the JournoList, let me explain. […]
