The Left Celebrates Bin Laden's Death in Unity and Patriotism and Not A Trace of Political…*snort*

Well, it certainly didn’t take long last night for a number of notable progressives to turn what should have been a moment of unifying national triumph into a left-wing partisan snark-off. I gleaned a few of the more egregious comments from some of the brighter lights of the left-wing commentariat as they posted them on […]

Think Progress Wants to Point Out the Rand in Ryan's Eye While Ignoring the Sanger in Their Own

One of the most effective political attacks one can make is to chain an opponent to someone the general public doesn’t like, or wouldn’t like when they found out more about that person. Progressives cry to high heaven when conservatives note the mutual admiration society that existed between Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Benito Mussolini or […]

I used to think the progressive left was little more than a bunch of lemmings, determines to leap en masse off the cliffs of fiscal insanity. The more I think about it, though, the more I realize that comparison just doesn’t work. Here is a recent example (via memeorandum) If President Obama’s deficit-reduction speech today […]

I can not imagine a blogger that does less with more than the Washington Post’s Ezra Klein. All he has to do is occasionally put up a random chart with nice pretty lines that end right about where he wants them to end and write a few paragraphs that sound like serious policy proposals and, […]

The New Civility Arrives in Michigan

At least one group of state employees will reap some rewards from the left’s full-throated assault on anyone who has even hinted that they’d like to take a crumb of power from the wealthy and powerful public sector union heads: police officers. There have been so many serious death threats in the past few weeks […]

You Know Who the Fleebaggers Are Just Like? Soldiers in Afghanistan.

In a grim future of arrogant hyperbole, this Indiana legislator could well be our Emperor. It takes an overflowing amount of both for him to compare his petulant flight to Illinois to avoid the will of the electorate to soldiers sent to Afghanistan for fight in our stead. But, as you’ll see, he has no […]

Control Yourselves! Al Gore Is Writing Another Book.

Oh joy and rapture, Al Gore is writing another book! I know, I know. The very idea of 300 or so pages from such a scintillating wordsmith as Gore is enough to stir the soul to heights of heretofore unknown bliss, but I have better than an idea. I have a summary of the book […]

The Left's New Civility: Hostage Tactics and Death Threats

You would expect, given all the talk from Democrats about how we need more civility in our political discourse and how “violent rhetoric” is as dangerous as actual violence, that the left would react to last night’s vote in Wisconsin with moderation and calm. Except they haven’t quite figure out how to manage a civil, […]

Episode 81 is in the can, and while I won’t claim it’s the best show of the crop, I can claim it has a lot on which you can chew. I talked a bit about Sarah Palin and why we conservatives really can’t waste time on her until she decided what it is she wants […]

New Media Scores Again, Exposes the Rot Inside NPR

| March 8, 2011 | Reply

Today’s lesson in How New Media Has Changed Everything comes to us via the fine, non-partisan, journalistically-pure folks over at NPR. James O’Keefe’s ambush video rangers at Project Veritas sent a couple folks, under the guise of front men for an Islamist group, to meet with NPR’s head fundraiser Ron Schiller. Their goal was to […]
