Clearing the Browser Tabs – What Palin Should Learn From Breitbart Sunday Edition

Yesterday, Sarah Palin went to Wisconsin to speak to the Tax Day Tea Party there and gave a speech that may well prove her first real stump speech of the 2012 campaign. As I’ve said before, I’ve no idea if Palin is running for President (and I still don’t believe she knows either), but it’s […]

Just when you think the President can’t sink any lower, he hauls out a shovel and digs like there’s a campaign donation ten feet under his feet. In 2008, Candidate Obama waxed sanctimonious about President Bush’s occasional use of signing statements (find a useful definition of those here). He claimed that, as a teacher of […]

Peter Jackson is one of my favorite directors. He makes movies I truly enjoy and I consider him a careful and diligent craftsman. The Frighteners is one of the most underrated suspense movies of the past twenty years and, well, I can’t pile enough superlatives on how he handled The Lord of the Rings. As […]

  Today, the President unveiled what we can charitably call his budget plan. Actually, it wasn’t so much as plan as it was a wicked partisan attack on Paul Ryan’s budget plan that is long on taxes, short on spending cuts, entirely without any mention of entitlements, and packed full of talking points that would […]

I’m not going to say that an e-mail newsletter can change your life, but in rare cases they can just make the internet more useful and cool. Melissa Clouthier, who is slowly taking over social media one platform at a time, has launched a newsletter that does both of those things. It’s special for two […]

At the very top of the list of reasons I could never live in Washington, DC is the mind-boggling dysfunction of its government. Crime is rampant, the school system is an utter failure, its subway system is a national joke, yet Mayor Vincent Gray and members of the City Council found plenty of time in […]

My beloved Washington Capitals will face the New York Rangers in the first round of the NHL playoffs. I really didn’t want the Caps to face the Rangers, since they didn’t fare well against them in the regular season, but no one gets to pick their playoff opponent. The Carolina Hurricanes had a chance to […]

When I went to bed in the wee hours of this morning, I knew that the post I wrote on John Boehner’s budget deal wasn’t going to be the majority opinion among the True Conservatives on the right, and I was right. Mark Levin hated the deal and all but called it fraudulent and an […]

It’s not every day you can watch the President of the United States look a citizen in the eye and address him like he was a witless child, but that’s exactly what Barack Obama did to a man at a town hall rally in Pennsylvania. Ed Morrissey and Glenn Reynolds have the story, along with […]
