Me at Hot Air: Not Everybody Was Kung-Fu Fighting.

I’m doing some guest-blogging at Hot Air for a few days while Ed Morrissey is out of the country for a few days and my first post this afternoon involves one of the silliest and most-frustrating stories I’ve seen all week. Apparently, the Brits have just a tiny problem with the concept of free speech, […]

After the President's Libya Speech, I Still Have Questions

Last night, President Obama did his best impression of an embarrassed schoolboy handing in a two-week late term paper he hastily finished the night before and told us what he thinks we’re doing in Libya and why Operation Air Quotes is the right thing. You can read the speech here and determine for yourself if […]

It's Not a Death Panel If It's Just One Person, Right?

It's Not a Death Panel If It's Just One Person, Right?

I don’t suppose it’s far for me to point to this story and mutter “Death Panels” under my breath because an actual panel isn’t involved. It’s just one woman who, thanks to the her national government, wields a ridiculous amount of power and wants to let babies die because she thinks the money spent to […]

Der Spiegel: No, America! That’s Now How You March in Lockstep Behind a Charismatic Leader!

The influential German periodical Der Spiegel is miffed that we silly Americans have expressed some small amount of disapproval in Barack Obama. In its latest edition, an editorial claims that we rambunctious bumpkins would be a lot better off if only we returned to our knees and worshipped The Obamessiah. Only the MSM, says Der […]

Today is Margaret Thatcher’s 85th birthday and I would like to wish her only the best of health and the brightest of days. She’s been ill for far too long and I pray God would give her a few easy years before she leaves this world. She was the greatest British Prime Minister of my […]

This past weekend, the left’s best and brightest met in Las Vegas to discuss, among other things, how they can rush America pell-mell toward an NHS-style, single-payer, government-run health care system. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, surrounded by a friendly audience on his home turf, proclaimed the public option a fait accompli. Meanwhile, as Philip […]

Nothing Like Getting Beat Up By An Ugly Chick in Heels.

This is the funniest story I’ve seen all week. Don’t jump ahead to the link just yet, because it gives away the punch line. Here’s the setup. Two young rough-toughs in South Wales got liquored up and decided, in their drunkenness (one of them was reported to have had 10 pints (!!) of cider), to […]

Oy vey. US President Barack Obama has indirectly praised former French president Jacques Chirac’s fierce opposition to the US-led invasion of Iraq, the online edition of the daily Le Figaro reported on Thursday. In a letter described by Chirac as ‘very nice,’ Obama wrote, ‘I am certain that we will be able to work together, […]

It looks like the President has lashed Tim Geithner to the mast like an unwilling Ancient Mariner and is steering our economy right into Charybdis’ gaping maw*. At least the President made himself recession-proof by signing a big, fat deal worth half a million dollars not to write a book just before he took the […]
