Labor Unions Hold The Dreams of Millions of Geeks Hostage

Labor Unions Hold The Dreams of Millions of Geeks Hostage

If you didn’t have enough reasons to hate labor unions, let me give you another one: An international group of actors’ unions, including SAG, has warned members not to work on “The Hobbit” because of failed efforts to organize the film’s New Zealand production — a move Peter Jackson disparages as a “power grab.” Members were […]

Oh, There’s a Political Civil War Happening, All Right.

If you listen to the Democratic Party or their lapdogs in the MSM, there is a “civil war” right now raging inside the Republican Party. This is a good story for them for two reasons. First, they get to paint the Tea Parties as a bunch of violent reactionaries who want to take over the […]

Anyone know how many buses the Republicans chartered to DC for the 8/28 or 9/12 marches? I only ask because, well… “The Tea Party has been getting much more media attention than it deserves, and it’s been saying it represents the voice of middle-class America,” said George Gresham, president of 1199 S.E.I.U., a New York […]

Jimmy Carter, Aged and Decrepit Old Dolt

I wonder, these days, if Jimmy Carter isn’t suffering from the ravages of old age. Each year reveals him to be more and more a bitter, spiteful old man possessed of some truly bizarre beliefs. He uncorked one of those beliefs earlier this week on NBC Nightly News earlier this week when he rambled his […]

I’m pretty sure this story won’t burn up the cable news networks, nor will it be the subject of hand-wringing columns from the MSM’s favorite fantasists, but it should. “Missouri governor was intended target of stabbing at MCC-Penn Valley,” reads the headline of today’s Kansas City Star. On Tuesday, mistaking the community college dean, Al […]

Palin Jealously is Such an Ugly, Hilarious Thing

Let me sum up this air-biscuit of an editorial in today’s New York Times thusly: Sarah Palin is is a mean, racist, stupid conservative who is bad for women but who has, due to powers we are quite willing to attribute to witchcraft, inspired more women to get involved in politics in just a couple […]

Stephanie Miller, Aisha Tyler, and Michelle Malkin Walk Into a Bar*

I will disagree with Michelle Malkin on only one point in her post on the vulgarity of left wing female comics: Stephanie Miller and Aisha Tyler are not comedians. Miller is a fifth-rate talk and game show host and Aisha Tyler is a moderately-successful character actress. Oh sure, they may have done a spot of […]

For reasons known only to himself, the President dispatched his faithful flop-sweater Robert Gibbs to deliver a slap to the President’s most ardent stooges supporters that would have made Moe Howard proud. During an interview with The Hill in his West Wing office, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs blasted liberal naysayers, whom he said […]

I get a kick out of the grassroots left at times. A guy in Seattle, WA has started a group called “RepublicansAreADisease.com”, wherein the anonymous author encourages all the oppressed and downtrodden Democrats in the state of Washington to Get Mad As Hell and Not Take It Anymore. They should, he explains, destroy Republican yard […]

Game on! Virginia’s lawsuit challenging the Obama administration’s health care reform law cleared its first legal hurdle Monday as a federal judge ruled the law raises a host of complex constitutional issues. U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson’s decision stemmed from Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s claims that Congress exceeded its authority under the Constitution’s Commerce […]
