Tweet Phyllis Chesler wrote a nice column today reminding conservatives (a) not to Bork Sotomayor (because two wrongs definitely don’t make a right); and (b) to make sure to develop Sotomayor’s understanding of the Constitution and her role as a judge — because, after all, that is what this whole job interview is about. Because [...]

Tweet States don’t like families, but even for a fascist state, “you’re too dumb to parent” seems like a bit of a stretch. Please note that the parent is not retarded in any way. The state just seems not to like her. All I can say that a bureaucratic determination that one is “dumb” seems [...]
Tweet I found a lengthy article in Britain’s Daily Mail reprinting an expose of what we we all could have predicted: the scams that are behind carbon credit trading. Rather than dissect the article myself (lazy me), I sent it to my friend Laer, whose business is providing PR representation for corporations that find themselves [...]
Tweet When you’re pretty darn brilliant already, it can be hard to top yourself. Believe it or not, though, Chris Muir just did. I think this Sunday’s cartoon is one of the best he’s ever written:
Tweet Yesterday, at a swim meet, I chanced upon a copy of the San Francisco Chronicle which is, of course, the major regional paper here in the Bay Area. On the front page was a close-up picture of some angry protesters, and this caption: Health care activists lament single-payer snub. Beyond mumbling to myself that [...]
Tweet On May 29, 2008, I wrote a post about the perverse symbolism and probable foul use to which Obama will put his planned trip to Buchenwald. I’ve since added a short, but rather significant, update to that post. Instead of re-posting the whole thing, I’ll just direct your attention to what I wrote on [...]
Tweet I’m not quite sure if it’s hypocrisy, or if it’s just another disgusting example of liberal opportunism, hence the wishy-washy name of this post. Whatever it is, it sure left me feeling icky. Oh, you’re wondering what the “it” I’m talking about is, right? I’m talking about the magical way in which liberals have [...]
Tweet It’s not just the video that’s good, it’s John Hindraker’s comment about Obama’s tax policies: I think President Obama’s worst weakness is that he is ignorant, not only of economics as an academic discipline, but of business as it is commonly experienced and understood by those in the private sector. This lack of understanding [...]
Tweet Click on over here. I guarantee you’ll thank me later.
Tweet We all know what gangstas wear, because those same clothes eventually ended up being worn by every middle class boy in America: unlaced high tops, falling down pants over plaid boxers, t-shirts with menacing images, and reverse baseball caps. For once, though, there’s a fashion that’s hit both ganstas and middle class kids alike. [...]
Tweet Cretins desecrated the flag that had once draped the coffin of a soldier who died in Iraq. And an ex-Marine who is now a police officer showed the kind of deep respect that helped soften that blow: Not since his son was killed in combat in Iraq has Paul Olson felt so emotionally jarred. [...]
Tweet The one thing we know for sure is that the lapdog media, which considered Reagan’s hair color a matter of top priority, has been discretely silent about Obama’s relationship with the bottle (the dye bottle, that is).
Tweet The facts are what they are, but you’ve got to love the emotion the journalist puts behind this opening paragraph about the newly released Obama photographs: He was tall and stunningly good looking, a guy who could appear pensive and serious one moment and then, with smoke from an unfiltered cigarette swirling around his [...]
Tweet Reader David Foster brought to my attention an article in the World Tribune which says Obama is refusing to give Israel helicopters that it requested: The Obama administration has blocked Israel’s request for advanced U.S.-origin attack helicopters. Government sources said the administration has held up Israel’s request for the AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopter. [...]
Tweet Ted Bromund is worried that Obama, by going to both Buchenwald and Dresden in the same trip is about to do something symbolically awful. Buchenwald, of course, was one of the infamous Nazi labor camps located right in Germany itself. It was not a death camp, and was not used specifically to exterminate Jews, [...]
Tweet I guess we get the politicians we deserve, but it would be nice if Republican politicians would buck up a little. Perhaps this video, which a sixteen year old boy created, would help: Find more videos like this on Patriotic Resistance Hat tip: American Thinker
Tweet I don’t doubt that Sotomayor is smart. What’s questionable is how smart. To the liberals, her Ivy League degrees give her instant crediblity. Let me quote from Ruth Marcus, along with the fisking I gave a few days ago on that particular point: Ditto, with a bit of racism thrown in, the barely sourced [...]
Tweet Austin, Texas, is a great town. It’s beautiful, the people are friendly, and it’s got one of the premier public universities in America. It’s this last that is responsible for Austin’s reputation as the most politically liberal town in Texas. This Progressive reputation goes a long way to explain the pompous idiocy of a [...]
Tweet This is every parent’s nightmare. Mr. Bookworm is still shuddering periodically after having read it. I’m sure the father in the story wishes he were dead — and probably survived only because an Iraq vet who is also a paramedic, coincidentally was on hand to render first aid. A council woman is already demanding [...]
Tweet Obama just told Israel to halt settlements, and at the same time told Palestinians to “increase[s] security.” I’m now curious about something — genuinely curious, not snarky: Prior to today, in his four months as President, has Obama told the Palestinians to stop killing Israelis? I mean, telling Palestinians to “increas security” doesn’t have [...]
Tweet I’m horrible at word play, but those of you who are, and those of you who aren’t, will enjoy the way Rick’s playing with words at Brutally Honest.
Tweet I’m assuming this ad placement was coincidental, but I nevertheless found the juxtaposition of the article’s caption and the ad’s picture amusing:
Tweet Aaaggghhh! No words. Just Aaaggghhh! Okay, changed my mind. Two sentences: Wasn’t it Bill Clinton who claimed oral sex wasn’t really sex? Now look what we’ve ended up with!
Tweet I’ve already read these great Watcher’s Council submissions and cast (or, as my son would say, casted) my vote. I think you’ll enjoy reading them too: Council Submissions Right Truth – Home grown terrorism and the media The Razor – Death To Inclusiveness! Joshuapundit – Jerusalem Day The Glittering Eye – Living Within Your [...]
Tweet Is it just me, or have there been a lot of earthquakes lately?
