A Ballpark Bursting with Pride

There are moments that remind me why I love the game of baseball. Tonight’s first pitch in Texas Stadium before Game 4 of the World Series was one of those moments. Did you notice that George W. drove the cart out himself? And how proud were Barbara and Laura in the front row? Say what […]

Clearing the Browser Tabs – The Last Sunday of Nancy Pelosi’s Reign

Think about this for a moment. After the tidal wave of voter anger at how they’ve been treated by those who think themselves better in every way arrives on Tuesday, Nancy Pelosi will no longer be in charge. Oh, sure, she’ll still be able to shove through a couple things as a lame-duck Speaker until […]

Tomorrow is Hallowe’en and there was no chance I would let you get away without seeing my favorite pop song of all time — Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London”. This may well be the cheesiest video I’ve ever seen and, if you watch closely, you’ll see that Zevon probably knew that while he was making […]

What a noxious piece of “reporting” this is. The average Marine is younger than those in the other military services, and more likely to be a trigger-puller. Youth and weapons probably explain this rash of recent shootings at Marine targets in the Washington area, including a second fusillade at the National Museum of the Marine […]

Poor John Kerry. He can see the tidal wave coming for his party and it’s clearly distressing him beyond all reason. With his party braced for defeats in the midterm elections, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee told the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce on Thursday that a Republican machine – fueled by talk show hosts […]

I’m going to give you one link, a pretty important one, all by itself today. Kathy Shaidle’s husband has been sued by legal menace Richard Warman for the horrible crime of linking to a Mark Steyn article. Yeah, that’s how it works up there in Canada. Some guy can use his country’s lack of free […]

If you are a state legislator, and you’re trying to slow-play your Governor’s fiscal reform plans because you figure if you wait him out, popular sentiment will swing to your side, there are a couple things you can, and probably should do. Take up a number of frivolous bills and claim they are long-neglected matters […]

Since we’re coming down to Election Day faster than the Road Runner on a desert straightaway, I figure it was time to bring out a big gun for Episode 62. Nathan Wurtzel is a friend of mine who is also a crack political observer and quite a good consultant. We went on a little tour […]

Another week, another teasy Thursday. Yes, I will spent a good chunk of the day under the happy delusion that it’s really Friday and again I will know disappointment. I honestly have no idea why this happens to me with such regularity. Perhaps I’m looking forward to all the behind the scenes blogging and podcasting […]
