I am experiencing a case of schadenfreude so large tonight that it may well show up on satellite photos. ACORN, the group Michelle Malkin rightly calls a “criminal enterprise” got one of the most amazing smackdowns I have ever seen from the Senate. In an 83-7 vote, the Democrat-controlled Senate approved an amendment offered by […]

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 […]

How worried is the left of the ginormous tea party gathering that’ll happen in Washington, DC today? Pretty darned worried, I’d say: On the eve of what organizers call a ‘Big Ol’ TEA Party’, the Washington, D.C., offices of FreedomWorks were evacuated by DC Metro police on Friday afternoon after the conservative organization reported to […]

Bum bum BUMMMM! The Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility has begun an official inquiry into the dismissal in May of a civil complaint against the New Black Panther Party and two of its members who disrupted a Philadelphia polling place during the November general elections. The inquiry is disclosed in an Aug. 28 letter […]

Barney Frank has a new book out which reveals that he really wants to be a member of Barack Obama’s cabinet. It also reveals that he is utterly incapable of learning from his own mistakes. Rep. Barney Frank is interested in capping his political career as a member of the president’s Cabinet, according to a […]

My latest post at the AIP blog looks at the manifold troubles of the Democratic majority in Congress and how they don’t quite seem to be ready for the new session to start. If I can draw a football analogy (and I can, since it’s my blog!), the Democrats are about the enter the regular […]

Tonight, a standing room-only crowd of over 1500 people packed the gymnasium of North Point High School in my hometown of Waldorf, MD to attend a health care town hall meeting with Congressman Steny Hoyer. I’d love to be able to give you a report of what happened inside the meeting but I can’t. I […]

I attended Congressman Jay Inslee’s health care townhall meeting in Edmonds, Washington, on August 30th. I’ll be blogging about that later today over at It’s Only Words but in the meantime, I wanted to throw this out. As was to be expected, one of the people who spoke at the townhall asked the now-obligatory question, […]

As It Happens, Americans Don’t Tend to Think Health Care Costs Are Driving Them Toward Eating Dog Food

In all the hubbub over Obamacare, there’s one question I’ve never seen anyone attempt to answer: Who told Congress and the President that health care needed to be overhauled? I’ve never seen any real cry from the American people to tear down and rebuild our health care system. Oh, sure, several left-wing groups (funded heavily […]

So, politically-connected politicians and thugs on the side of the administration have investigations against them dropped while those the ruling politicians don’t like are prosecuted well after the fact. That reminds me of someplace, a city out in the Midsest somewhere, perhaps, known for being a cesspool of corruption and crime. Here’s the bottom line: […]
