Whatever would we do without Senior Political Analysts to tell us that we are “no doubt” reassured by how “very comfortable” our President was last night?

Quick, say the word “Orion”. Did you get it right, with a long “eye” sound in the middle of the word and the stress on the second syllable? Of course you did. What are you, the President of the United States? The idea that led to the founding of Orion Energy Systems received a presidential […]

Well, of course this exists. For the past two years, several hundred left-leaning bloggers, political reporters, magazine writers, policy wonks and academics have talked stories and compared notes in an off-the-record online meeting space called JournoList. This goes a long way toward explaining the strange synchronicity of news stories and blog entries and activist involvement […]

James Pethokoukis hit the nail right on the head today. There was a lively exchange last night on The Daily Show between Jon Stewart and CNBC’s Jim Cramer, in which Stewart hammered Cramer and the network for being subservient to Wall Street and not alerting viewers to the coming meltdown. Cramer and the network can […]

This quote from one of Stacy’s posts seems a perfect introduction to another announcement: By slow and imperceptible degrees, like a vine climbing a wall, a stultifying artificiality has crept into American intellectual life, which is governed by a set of unspoken rules that prohibit engagement on terms that are honest, honorable and manly.

President Obama Removes Politics from Science by Adding More Politics to Science

Here’s an interesting headline from today’s Washington Post. Obama Aims to Shield Science From Politics I’d say his aim is off a bit. The Post is being terribly deceptive in reporting what the White House says the President will do as opposed to what his order will really do. If the President really wanted to […]
