Why is Michael Moore a Socialist? It Rhymes with "Wreconimic Lupidity"

Why is Michael Moore a Socialist? It Rhymes with "Wreconimic Lupidity"

Someone decided it would be a good idea to sit the Baron Harkonnen-ish Michael Moore in front of a camera and capture his gaseous emanations for posterity. The result was a cloud of stale socialism and self-righteous stank that Doug Powers, Bryan Preston, and Jonah Goldberg all treated the same way you’d treat the air […]

Everything I dislike about left-wing protesters can be found in this video by Ann Althouse and her husband. Here’s the set-up. Ann and Meade, who have been covering the teachers’ union protests in Madison, WI this week, found that one group had stuck a bunch of their posters and signs on the back of a […]

Well, this is certainly a novel defense of Obamacare. Unfortunately for us, it was made by a federal judge and now has the binding power of law until a higher judge can strike it down for the codswallop it is. As previous Commerce Clause cases have all involved physical activity, as opposed to mental activity, […]

On Tuesday, Democratic Congressman Michael Capuano said this to a crowd of union members. “I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going…Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.” [emphasis mine] […]

In a day, the situation in Wisconsin has gone from merely ridiculous to bizarre. The state Senate was set to vote on Governor Walker’s “budget repair bill” except that all the Democrats were gone. Senate rules require a quorum of 20 and when the Republican Leader called the quorum, only the 19 Republicans showed up […]

The most exceptional thing has been happening in Wisconsin over the past few days. Governor Scott Walker has introduced a bill that will save the state about $300 million dollars over the next ten years – a sorely-needed chunk of slack in a budget that has, like so many other state budgets, gotten entirely out […]

I guess if you don’t like what the messenger is about to say, you can always attack the messenger. Wait, did I say attack? What I meant was clumsily threaten and intimidate. Democrats are understandably obsessed with Darrell Issa — he’s built himself up as a one-man investigative machine aimed straight at the Obama presidency. But […]

At some point we will stop thinking of Noam Chomsky as a leading intellectual and start thinking of him as a doddering old fool who has soaked so long in progressive politics that his once-formidable mind has gone soft as a down pillow. “There’s other factors like the anger, and the fear and hostility in […]

In the coming budget battle, a growing number of Democrats have chosen a side — against the American people. The battle lines are forming within the Democratic Party over the charged question of reforming Social Security in the days leading up to President Obama’s State of the Union address. Liberals, such as Sen. Bernie Sanders […]
