#FollowFriday Open Thread
Teh Twitter. Once felt dumb to email about phone calls. Then came blogging email. Then tweeting blogs. And now, I’ve CALLED about tweets. Circle of dumb. 9:59 PM May 2nd from TweetDeck … and now I’m blogging about calling about tweeting about blogging about emailing about calling … sigh. Twitter had a lot to do with the successful pushback on the Playboy article and the | Read More »
“Caption This” Contest: Letterman
From now until Father’s Day, Redstate will be running a series of contests on the front page. We’re giving away a copy a day of the book The Ultimate Man’s Survival Guide by Frank Miniter. The Upper East Side metrosexual may be good at cocktail chat, but a real man knows how to fight off alligators, create a tourniquet out of a t-shirt, and rescue | Read More »
Old Man At CBS Fixates On Sex With Teen Girls, Audience Delighted
(This story has been updated below) Has Chris Hansen ever been a guest on Dave’s show? Just askin. Fresh from calling Sarah Palin a slut and joking about her 14-year old daughter being raped and impregnated in front of a bemused stadium, David Letterman thought it would be hilarious to follow up by calling her a prostitute: Letterman’s pursuit of Palin and her daughters has | Read More »

A Climate of Hate
From the time the Warren Commission report cited it for fostering the assassination of JFK up through the recent murder of an abortionist in Kansas, the left loves to writes about and decry what they refer to as a “climate of hate.” Lately little more than code for “conservatives are talking,” the phrase “climate of hate” is ubiquitous, both in traditional media and on the | Read More »
The Playboy Article (NSFW)

New Silicon Graffiti Video: “21st Century Schizoid Mad Men”
. Ed Driscoll highlights an important theme here. (No, not just because he features ME!! in the video.) The increasing comfort that the unfailingly anti-American left feels in spreading political messages through any and all available media is disturbing. Remember Pennsylvania State portraying vets as unstable idiots? And who can forget CNN’s Susan Roesgen trashing tea partiers? (Or all the other reporters trashing tea party | Read More »
Rewriting the History of the History Channel Ads
Somebody is lying. This is an update to my previous story regarding the anti-American ads designed by Ogilvy & Mather. I mentioned in that article that History Channel parent A&E Television Networks has been issuing cease & desist letters to websites and others who were running the Ogilvy designed advertisements that featured the History Channel logo. This afternoon, I found one website which has already | Read More »
CLIO Removes Ogilvy Ads Pending “Investigation”
This is a follow-up to my earlier story regarding the anti-American ads created by the Johannesburg office of Ogilvy & Mather. Sometime late last night, Ed Driscoll noted that the ads in question had been removed from the CLIO Awards page. I contacted CLIO again and here is their official statement on the removal of the ads: “The CLIO Awards have removed the advertisements from | Read More »
History Is (Re)Written By The Winners
… or at least, by the ad agencies. The History Channel is a generally well-respected brand in the United States. The shows routinely make “water-cooler” conversation at sites like Redstate. Indeed, the sister networks like The Military Channel are staples among conservative viewers, as anyone who spends any time around conservatives and veterans is well aware. So you can imagine my surprise reading an article | Read More »
Dance of the Sugarplum Failure
(Thanks to @vermontaigne for the title) . I keep seeing people like Markos asking why Republicans are suddenly interested in who is responsible for “torture”. That the Speaker of the House just accused the CIA of lying to Congress goes right past them. No surprise. That the Speaker just can’t get her story straight, or even spit it out in complete sentences, doesn’t move them. | Read More »
Teh Twitter – Open Thread
Teh Twitter. Yeah. I’m hip. What of it? Let me tell you something about Twitter. Despite the many humor blogs you’ve seen written, most people on Twitter are not sending Tweets (yes, that’s really what they are called … sigh) highlighting every mundane detail of their lives. “About to eat chicken” … “Eating Chicken” … “Done with Chicken” … “Remember the part where I was | Read More »
What’s the Difference Between Obama and his Grandma?
She’s dead. No? Nothing? How about: You know, I heard Obama was the 20th hijacker but missed his flight because Larry Sinclair just “couldn’t seem to finish.” What? Too much? You know you’re laughing in your head. Let me tell you something I’ve observed in comedy. When a comedian follows a harsh joke with a comment about going too far, it is normally because it’s | Read More »

President Newspeak Wants A Cookie
. The left and the press (but I repeat myself) are falling all over each other in their haste to congratulate Obama and his manly response to the pirates. A retch-worthy visit to the comments section of left blogs reveals revolting mission-accomplished-gasms and endless reposts of photo fakes featuring Obama being cool or hip with the words “I Got This” adoringly emblazoned upon the savior | Read More »
