Clearing the Browser Tabs – Overly Geeky Sunday Edition

I’ve been holding a bunch of links that are geekier than the usual political stuff about which I write. I don’t want to hold on to them much longer, lest they expire, so I’m going to dump a bunch of them here for your enjoyment. To be perfectly honest, I never quite know what to […]

We Now Have Proof that Heated Rhetoric Breeds Violence…From the Left.

Well, the self-fulfilling prophesy the left ginned up this week after the shooting of 19 people in Tucson, AZ has come true. One of the victims, himself a progressive activist named James Fuller, openly threatened to kill the head of the Tucson Tea Parties at an ABC News event designed to “heal” the rifts allegedly […]

Glenn Reynolds tossed up a link to this story on marital happiness and, strangely enough, didn’t go for the obvious punchline. Ladies: Are you nervously watching your weight to stay attractive for your husband or boyfriend? Well, put down those salad forks. It turns out you don’t have to starve yourself — unless he’s doing […]

I’d like to say that this post is a couple hours late because I was adding late-breaking links to it or because I was unavoidably detained doing some critical work for a client. The truth is…heated rhetoric is to blame. I was all set to put this post together last night when I heard a […]

I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a while before I’m as wound up as I was at the end of the first half of Episode 73, so you all should soak up the passionate rant while it’s there. Few things get me as wired as someone who doesn’t quite get the First Amendment and […]

Let’s say that you are a prominent public figure. Let’s also say that for the past five days media figures and national politicians have been accusing you of complicity in a horrifying mass murder. Let’s also say that the accusations have absolutely no basis whatever, but none of those media figures (most of whom purport […]

I admit all the “moderate your tone” talk from the MSM and the left has really gotten under my skin. I’m glad, though, that I’m not the only one. I’ve collected some of the better links on the “tone” aspect of the story for today’s post. Some are snarky and funny, but most are serious […]

If you weren’t part of the live podcast last night, you missed one of the best shows I think I’ve ever recorded. I actually yelled toward the end of the first half, which is something I rarely do. The left’s rank opportunism on the Arizona shooting has bothered me greatly and, well, most of that […]
