Ho. Lee. Cow. Let me say, first, that James O’Keefe knows what works in a video. There are plenty of long shots of his smoking hot partner Hannah Giles in her miniskirt and halter combo. So, hooray for that. Also, there are a couple shots of Hannah and James together, which you really need to […]

President Finally Calls Someone a “Jackass” Who Isn’t Republican!

I think maybe the President should have stuck to his guns on this: President Obama was giving an interview today to CNBC. An ABC reporter overheard the president call Kanye West a “jackass” for his dramatic interruption of the VMA’s Sunday night to praise a Beyonce video that did not win. Said ABC reporter immediately […]

I’m not going to write a lengthy takedown of this piece of journalistic malpractice from the Los Angeles Times. It’s not really worth the effort. I will note, though, that it’s a lot easier to understand the charges the “reporter” makes in the article if every time you see the word “some”, you replace it […]

Nice Counting There, New York Times!

It doesn’t speak well of the New York Times’ layers upon layers of fact-checkers and editors that this paragraph made it to publication. The demonstrators numbered well into the tens of thousands, though the police declined to estimate the size of the crowd. Many came on their own and were not part of an organization […]

Washington is Closed Today. Sorry. (UPDATED: An Open Challenge to the Liar Alan Colmes)

As of right now, there are estimates of anywhere from 1.2 million (via local police) and 2 million (via ABC News) people in Washington DC demanding that their elected officials stop playing silly games and listen to them. I expect the attendance number will come out somewhere in between. Stephen Green reported a conversation between […]

Well, the truth about Rep. Joe Wilson, the man who destroyed forever the decorum and civility of the floor of Congress with his white-hot two-word harangue of our perfectly honest and forthright President, is out. The Hill has revealed that Wilson took pills. Caffeine pills. Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.), who shouted “you lie!” at President […]

I’ll bee offline for the next few hours. I’ve been invited to a reception — no, a gala reception — for Michelle Malkin and I don’t think they have WiFi where I’ll be going. If I get the chance I might fire off a tweet or two. Otherwise, I’ll have a few photographs and some […]

Are You an “Urban Modern”? Let’s Find Out!

I have no idea what the New York Times means when it calls itself “urban modern”, but I know what it says to me. The Times is declaring that it is going to speak only to its own echo chamber of upper-class progressives who have cloistered themselves in the high-rent districts of northeast and west-coast […]

It’s not enough that the President’s hand-picked “Green Czar” Van Jones is a self-described recent convert to communism nor that he believes opposing the President makes you an a**hole. Oh, no. If he were only those things he’d be strikingly normal for an Obama administration czar. But Van Jones is no normal opposition-hating Commie. Van […]

Even if you’re not terribly concerned, I recommend them to you. Stacy interviewed Johan Norberg, who has written a brand-new book about […]
