In her latest book Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America (which I’ve yet to read, though it’s parked on my Wish List), Ann Coulter details how the elements of mob mentality are also the central elements of the progressive worldview.

Obama: America Would Be Great If It Wasn’t So Lazy

| September 29, 2011 | Comments (3)

Is Barack Obama trying to tank his re-election prospects? I only ask because It’s the most plausible reason I can imagine for why he would go on the campaign trail and talk trash about Americans. Mr. Obama, in an interview with WESH-TV in Orlando, said his administration has been tough on the country’s trading partners [...]

Our Problem is Too Much Freedom, Says the Super Smart Guy.

Peter Orszag, the former Director of the Office of Budget and Management in the Obama administration, thinks we have entirely too much democracy. According to him, we need lots of commissions and panels that will just do things for us, without all that messy voting and debating and gridlock. In an 1814 letter to John [...]

They chose these targets — the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the White House — because they [...]

It’s good to see that the Democrats have fully embraced the message about civility in political discourse they ever so subtly shoved down our throats like you’d shove a pill down the throat of a sick dog. We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you [...]

Ezra Klein: Professional Left? Me? Perish the Thought!

| August 18, 2011 | Comments (2)

I know I pick on Ezra Klein, who blogs professionally for the Washington Post, quite often, but it’s only because he deserves it. As I’ve shown, he has a tendency to take a basic left-wing talking point, wrap it up in a softer shell, paint it with a couple plausible-looking statistics (if he’s feeling energetic), [...]

Let Us Look Back at the Calm, Rational Rhetoric of the Debt Ceiling Circus

| August 1, 2011 | Comments (24)

Now that the debt ceiling circus is all over but the voting and back-slapping, why not look back at some of the well-considered and not-at-a-batspit-crazy statements made by certain influential members of the left over the past few days.
