Tweet Here’s the caption I made for “Obama’s got a gun“: I know that all of you can do better than I can, so you should toddle over here, check out what other people have done, and make your own. Then, send me the link or image, and I’ll post it.

Tweet Much is being made of the fact that it’s finally becoming big news that Obama, in Dreams From My Father, “compressed” a girlfriend. That is, he’s acknowledged in his book that some people referenced in the book were “composites.” It’s just that no one realized that at least one of the girlfriends who got [...]
Tweet The Twentieth Century American paradigm for patriotism was our Flag, Mom, and Apple Pie. Obama’s Democrats have now hit the trifecta. We’ve got the flag: We’ve got Mom: And we’ve got pie, courtesy of Michelle Obama, speaking on April 8, 2008: The truth is most Americans don’t want much. Folks don’t want the whole [...]
Tweet Jennifer Rubin has a very good post today about the reasons that the “smart” Obama may be struggling so mightily to be a good president. She offers three basic reasons that may explain Obama’s ineptitude, whether it touches economics, diplomacy, or national security: First, the punditocracy confused credentials with knowledge or smarts. [snip] Second, [...]
Tweet Although the dinosaur media has assiduously ignored the story about Ayer’s authorship of Dreams of my Father, people are beginning to recognize the impact from the combination of Jack Cashill’s articles about the stylistic similarities between Dreams of my Father and Bill Ayer’s writing (similarities too great to be mere coincidence), and a new [...]
Tweet Today, Gerry Charlotte Phelps is celebrating the anniversary of her imprisonment (she was a 1960s college radical). While in prison, she found God and turned her life around. Thinking about her, it struck me that one huge difference between liberals and conservatives is their attitude towards sinners. On the one hand, liberals embrace the [...]
Tweet I grew up in San Francisco in the 1960s and 1970s. I have vivid memories of the brief, highly middle class era right before the hippies came (when houses and people looked liked sets and actors from the Dick Van Dyke Show); of the be-ins in Golden Gate Park; of the incredible human degradation [...]
Tweet As we were driving back to the ‘burbs from an outing in San Francisco today, we saw a rare sight: an older lady nattily attired in furs. Standing near her was a young woman, screaming into the lady’s face. The children were mesmerized. First, they’d never seen furs and, second, the spectacle of a [...]
Tweet I have to admit to screaming with laughter when I finally got around to Bill Ayers’ short-form autobiography for the New York Times, one that sees him classifying himself as just a joyous idealist, frolicking through the 1960s and 1970s — a Dennis the Menace for his times, all good intentions and humorously bad [...]
Tweet I’m on the run this morning, bouncing from one thing to another, but strongly suggest that you read Bob Owens’ interview with informant Larry Grathwohl, who reflects on the Weathermen, their leaders then and now, and what he thinks about the relationship between Bill Ayers and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Tweet We all recognize that, as to the average American, Obama’s friendship with Bill Ayers is a big yawn. Who cares that, as Obama said, Ayers bombed when Obama was 8? Who cares, as Obama refuses to admit, that Ayers has never repented and, indeed, wishes he’d done more? Who cares that Obama’s friend Ayers [...]
Tweet Kathy Shaidle summarizes neatly why Ayers wasn’t then and isn’t now a nice person, and why that latter fact matters vis a vis Obama:
Tweet I had a lovely time last night at a reception on the Bonhomme Richard, and plan on writing about it later today. However, other work calls, so I thought I’d fill this space with recommendations for interesting stuff you may want to read. In no particular order: William Katz, a witty, erudite man who [...]
Tweet The media is working hard to prevent the American people from hearing what comes from the conservatives, whether by ignoring it altogether, or by using selective cut and paste, or by engaging in intentional humiliation tactics (with their opposite number being saved for Obama). Sometimes, though, verbal judo works — which is to say, [...]
