The Kincaid Kolumn Kerfuffle

The Kincaid Kolumn Kerfuffle

Before I hit the meat of my post, let me lay a couple things out there. First, I think we’d be incredibly foolish to tinker with the definition of marriage any more than we have. A few decades of well-intentioned meddling ought to have taught us we absolutely suck at predicting unintended consequences. If we […]

I don’t have a huge point here, but I want to leave one little fact on which we may want to gnaw like a meaty thigh bone for a few days. Erick Erikson wrote a post at Red State in which he said this: It is time to throw the social conservatives out of the […]

I know we conservatives yack on about media bias, often to the point where we sound like a shelf full of “Tickle Me NewsBusters” dolls whose squawk buttons have all been pushed at the same time. But the bias really does exist and it’s not very often overt. Most times, even seasoned news hounds don’t […]

President Obama Channels Judge Dredd, Reeks of Desperation

Today, President Barack Obama did something I don’t think I’ve ever seen a President do. He ordered the Department of Justice not to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act because he believes it is unconstitutional. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a statement released Wednesday that President Obama has decided that his administration […]

I spent a little time over the weekend with Judge Vaughn Walker’s decision to invalidate Proposition 8. For those of you who haven’t yet heard of the Dread Proposition That Took Us All Back To the Days Of Jim Crow And Tyrannosauruses, let me give you a quick rundown. Prop 8 was a ballot item […]

Stop the presses, call all the anchors in from vacation, and cancel prime time, folks. There’s big news afoot. The muckraking website TMZ has allegedly unearthed a Carrie Prejean sex video. Now, if you’re one of the bazillions of people who don’t know who Carrie Prejean is and couldn’t care less about the presence of a […]

Dan Collins cuts all the way to the quick on Boobiegate. The grotesque spectacle of homosexual judges of heterosexual beauty standards claiming that they are the ones who have a right to define what is beautiful for straight men–and really the equally grotesque spectacle of Olbermann pretending to be some form of journalist–demonstrates perfectly Jeff’s […]

It is, apparently, far too much to ask that the religion writer for Newsweek know a bit about religion. Actually, that’s not fair. Miller knows quite a bit about religion. Alas, the religion she knows about is one she made up right on the spot that just happens to fit perfectly into the strawman she’s […]

Not content to bully old women and Mormons, the more mouthy proponents of Prop 8 decided to lay an assault on music and the theater. I give you: “Proposition 8, The Musical”. I present it to you as an object of ridicule and not much more. If there’s a good point, it’s hidden behind Jack […]

National Review, on the bigotry and violence of the Proposition 8 supporters in California: The outbreak of attacks on the Mormon church since the passage of Proposition 8 has been chilling: envelopes full of suspicious white powder were sent to church headquarters in Salt Lake City; protesters showed up en masse to intimidate Mormon small-business […]
