Right On Cue: Democrats Want Us to "Put the Brakes" on Nuclear Power

Right On Cue: Democrats Want Us to "Put the Brakes" on Nuclear Power

One of the things I didn’t mention in this post (which earned the much-coveted Instalanche), was the sneaking suspicion I had that the shoddy journalism in Japan was headed toward a certain conclusion. With all the panicky stories involving scary, but ultimately useless, words like “meltdown”, “radioactive”, and “elevated”, it was only a matter of […]

Is Today My Birthday? House Votes to Defund the Czars

Is Today My Birthday? House Votes to Defund the Czars

Today must be my birthday. Somehow I wanged my head and was unconscious for a couple months and it’s now late April. How else to explain the wonderful gifts I’ve received today. The weather today was gloriously sunny and near 70 degrees; the progressive movement is falling apart and in near-panic mode thanks to several […]

NASA's Idea of Winning the Future is Less than Inspiring

Remember when the people who ran NASA aspired to great things, like putting men on the moon and exploring the vasty blackness of our final frontier? These days, it takes much less to get then excited. Witness the headline of today’s big press release: NASA Announces Plan To Win The Future With Fiscal Year 2012 […]

Megan McArdle is not at all pleased with the latest debt numbers. “Grim” doesn’t seem to be a terrifying enough word to describe the budget outlook that the CBO released Wednesday.  Oh, sure, we sort of knew this was coming–tax cuts are expensive if you don’t find spending cuts to match.  And yet the numbers […]

Democrats at the State of the Union: Republicans, You are Our Density

Democrats at the State of the Union: Republicans, You are Our Density

2011 may go down as the year the State of the Union completed its transformation from a stately and sober governmental ceremony to a full-blown three-ring circus. Actually, that’s not fair to circuses, which are usually tightly-managed professional productions whose sole purpose is to delight and amaze the audience. This year’s address is likely to […]

What Do You Know? Nancy Pelosi Was A Historic Speaker!

What Do You Know? Nancy Pelosi Was A Historic Speaker!

| January 6, 2011 | Reply

This seems like the perfect punctuation mark to close out the reign of the hands-wodn worst Speaker of the House in our nation’s history. With 19 Democrats withholding support from Nancy Pelosi for House speaker on Wednesday, it represented the largest defection from a party’s speaker nominee in nearly a century. The resistance in the Democratic […]

I’ve often wondered what the essential quality of leadership is. You might think that a true leader would choose to celebrate a big victory with by spending an hour or so with his most dedicated followers, but you’d be very wrong. Sharing yourself with the little people is for suckers. According to California public sector […]

Fresh from his being turned out by the voters of New York, soon to be ex-Congressman John Hall could not resist one last lecture for us poor unlearned and unwashed masses. Unfortunately, what he probably intended as a history lesson turned out more like a lesson in histrionics (via memeorandum). In a wide-ranging interview before […]

Ever since I determined that President Obama has replaced that “The Buck Stops Here” placard with one that says “You Don’t Ever Want A Crisis to Go to Waste” on the Resolute Desk, I’ve been on the lookout for The Culprit. You know who The Culprit is. It’s the person or group who is actually […]
