Fear and Kia in Kentucky

Fear and Kia in Kentucky

As I write this, Stacy McCain is somewhere west of Fairmont, W.Va., heading toward Clay County, KY to commit acts of journalism related to the apparent murder of Bill Sparkman. He’s probably traveling light — a bottle of Mad Dog and a carton of Winstons in the seat next to him and Steppenwolf blasting from […]

Apparently the blogosphere is alight with the fires of the armies lining up to fight the next Battle for Conservative Purity. The subject this time is Glenn Beck, the guy who has never, ever claimed to be either a conservative or a Republican, but whose popuarity among both is undeniable. Really, the subject tends to […]

I’ll bee offline for the next few hours. I’ve been invited to a reception — no, a gala reception — for Michelle Malkin and I don’t think they have WiFi where I’ll be going. If I get the chance I might fire off a tweet or two. Otherwise, I’ll have a few photographs and some […]

I had planned on writing a long post with my real opinion of Ted Kennedy after his funeral (which, at this point, seems to be going on longer than Wagner’s Ring cycle and is as likely to end with mighty Valkyries whisking him off to Democratic Valhalla). However, that won’t be necessary because Stacy McCain […]

I think the lesson we can take away from this is if you’re going to throw a blogger a bone, make sure it’s the right bone. Speaking of bones, Stacy’s on the trail of another anonymous left-wing denizen of crazytown who boned herself (quite a trick!) by thinking that hiding behind a flimsy web of […]

Take a Little Humor Test, Republicans

Here’s an interesting question: And speaking of “issues,” let’s have an informal poll. Please read the following statement aloud: A major problem of the Republican Party today is that in recent years the GOP has attracted too many humorless self-important blowholes who take everything literally and who only want to talk about “issues.” Do you […]

Look, I know we bloggers are still scum-sucking muckrakers who ramble on about infomercial guys and football teams, but a few bloggers are real, honest-to-God journalists. How about putting the credit where it belongs, guy? By the way, if you want to be as informed as it gets on the story of how a weasel […]

Well, you don’t say. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin tells POLITICO that widespread blogosphere reports about a possible divorce from her husband, Todd, are “made up.” If you’ve been reading this blog, you would have already known that, straight from the pit bull’s mouth. Mike Allen is a bit behind the curve on this story, […]

Now doesn’t this just sound tantalizing? Just got off the phone with Dan Riehl, with whom I’m co-blogging a project about anti-Palin blogger “Gryphen,” a/k/a Jesse Griffin, Anchorage kindergarten teacher. Given the serious nature of this story, Dan has decided to seek legal advice before publishing, a decision in which I concur. You say you […]

Journalism is really easy when you don’t worry about such silly things as confirming your sources. MONDAY, AUG. 3, 2009, 4:34 P.M. – Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and husband Todd “went at it like crazy” Sunday evening at their home in Wasilla, according to one source familiar with the couple’s rendezvous. “Man, I don’t […]
