New York Times: It's the Government's Fault that ACORN is a Fraud Machine.

New York Times: It's the Government's Fault that ACORN is a Fraud Machine.

Lord, what a bunch of whiners New York Times editorial board has become. Friday’s editorial, ostensibly about ACORN and why the rampant voter fraud that we know has been occurring is really no big deal, closes with what the board thinks is the real scandal. Our government isn’t babying us enough. Meanwhile, Republicans aren’t saying […]

What Hank Paulson's Admiration? What is That Which Brings Him Joy?

I wonder who Hank Paulson had in mind to bludgeon with his baseball bat at this meeting?* WASHINGTON — The chief executives of the nine largest banks in the United States trooped into a gilded conference room at the Treasury Department at 3 p.m. Monday. To their astonishment, they were each handed a one-page document […]

The good news from the Capitals’ season-opener and tonight is that they have more than enough offense to come back from three goals down. The bad news is that they couldn’t do it twice. The Capitals, playing on the team’s 34th anniversary, fell behind to the Atlanta Thrashers 3-0 and 4-1 before tying it in […]

Hey, you know what could really help this financial mess we’re in? Spending lots and lots of government money on climate change! “Skyrocketing energy prices and the financial crisis have been a wake-up call that something’s got to change,” said Cathy Zoi, chief executive officer of the Alliance for Climate Protection, which is chaired by […]

Robert McCain has written the column I wish I had thought to write two weeks ago. I’ve had this thought buzzing around my head like a gnat lately and I haven’t been able to get my hands on it. This whole bailout idea repulses me on a level that I’ve been at a loss to […]

The MSM is Not Doing Its Job on the Bailout Story

Yes, this sentiment certainly seems appropriate to me (via Instapundit). If it seems like I’m waffling on the merits of bailing out Wall Street, it’s because the facts keep changing. And the President certainly didn’t help matters last night. If I had to decide on this bailout, or whatever we’re calling it, based just on […]

Union Bosses to Members: We Mean It! Vote for Obama, You Racists!

| September 8, 2008 | Reply

Not even three weeks ago the Union Bosses were calling their members a bunch of cowardly racists, afraid to vote for a black man. They’re at it again. You know the best thing, my union-loving Democratic friends? They simply assume that a whole chunk of you are racist without even a shred of evidence that […]

Barack, Back from Vacation, Mud in Hand

I couldn’t help but notice a pair of stories that came out yesterday and this morning, hard on the heels of Barack’s Obama’s drubbing at Saddleback Church. The headline to the first story is “Vacation over, Obama in fighting form” and the second one is headlined “Obama sharpens the message” (the latter via memeorandum). The […]

I’ve seen way to many metaphors for falling gas prices to come up with one of my own. Sorry. Surely you been noticing the falling gasoline prices. I certainly have and so has Reuters, which notes that gas prices are at the lowest they’ve been since the middle of May. The article attributes that to […]

Jay Nordlinger” “That’s one of the worst things about Communist and dictatorial regimes: They are cruel to little girls.” I think that is the most beautiful and insightful criticism I’ve ever read about tyranny. It drills down to the very heart of a dictator’s depravity. That’s one of the reasons I appreciate Nordlinger’s writing as […]
