Politics in Comedy
Yesterday, I wrote about comedy in politics, and where the line between comedian and punditry is. Now, let’s flip the subject: at what point does politics crossover into comedy’s territory? Over the last few years, efforts have been made to make sure that comedy, like all forms of entertainment, is made to be politically correct. This is a Herculean task for the PC Crowd, because of | Read More »
NYT’s @arappeport & @steveeder obediently vomit up American Bridge Lefty oppo.
The New York Times is being fed stories by American Bridge. …Yes, I know. It’s like catching your aunt picking her nose.

Unbearably White Salon Writer Exposes GOP *Wink Wink Nudge Nudge* Politics
Scott Timberg over at Salon is a white guy, which makes this piece over at Salon so odd. He is claiming Rick Perry’s use of a country rap song (that is about Rick Perry and was used to kick off his election) is some sort of cultural appropriation that the Republican Party likes to use as some sort of, and now I’m quoting Timberg because | Read More »
Breaking: Marco Rubio Does Not Abuse his Influence
In the process of writing a shamefully petty hit piece on Marco Rubio, the New York Times has actually done Marco Rubio a great service, by painting him in a great light especially as compared to Hillary Clinton. You see, in the course of breathlessly reporting that Marco Rubio has had 4 traffic tickets over the last 18 years, the NYT inadvertently revealed at least | Read More »
Emma Sulkowicz: Martyr of Frauds
It’s hard to imagine that Emma Sulkowicz wants to be anything other than a martyr. She wants to go down for a cause, and her first piece of “art” is definitely going to get her there. The “art” in question? It’s a performance piece that she says is not a re-enactment of the rape she made famous that likely didn’t happen. Despite the fact that | Read More »
Should Marriage In Alabama Only Be Recognized As A Private Contract?
Ramsay Bolton Morality Conquers America I read things every so often that leave me believing all that is good about America will die a slow, hideous death in the ditch like a drunk or stoned transient experiencing the final liver collapse. Our culture and way of life are under a deconstructive assault and the traditionalists manning the ramparts athwart this invasion | Read More »
Marcus Luttrell: Navy SEAL and American hero to you. “Sweaty bodyguard” to the left.
When Governor Rick Perry announced he was running for president there were two bearded men standing behind him: Marcus and Morgan Luttrell. Marcus Luttrell was (as much as you can ever use the word “was” in this context) a Navy SEAL and the sole survivor of Operation Red Wings. His story was made into a bestselling book and popular movie called Lone Survivor. Perry has | Read More »

Hillary’s high risk faux primary race
So Linc Chafee is in the race. This brings the number of contenders up to four. You have an embittered, kleptocratic and entitled Social Security recipient; you have a sex-obsessed, corrupt septuagenarian Socialist; you have a big city machine Progressive; and you have the Wonder-Bread-and-Velveeta pragmatist. Of this crew, the only one that is a real contender is Martin O’Malley. But the real reason this | Read More »
Last women wash out of Ranger School
The Army, ever servile to the latest political fads emanating from the Pentagon, opened the US Army Ranger School to women candidates in the class that began on April 20. The first-ever Army Ranger School with female students opened on Monday with 16 of 19 female soldiers passing the initial physical fitness test, as the Pentagon continues to assess which new combat roles women should | Read More »
Anti-Somethings Are All the Rage
Lately it seems the growing number of fashionable “anti-something” campaigns are more about attempting to establish that it is you who are the only one against the spotlighted subject matter. This has become very clear with things such as the anti-gun violence and anti-rape campaigns. Oh, congratulations! You’re against sexual assault and violence with a deadly weapon? 99.99% of us are, unless you’re the actual | Read More »
Comedy in Politics
If you’ve ever studied theater (or if you’ve ever been drunk in New Orleans at or around Mardi Gras), then you are familiar with the masks of drama. They are the two masks you see side-by-side, one laughing and one crying. Drama dates back to the late fifth century BC, with both comedy and tragedy being created around the same time. Comedy itself has changed | Read More »
Vermont Discovers the Joys of Federalism
It’s pretty safe to say that Vermont is the most hippie-infested state in the union. Thanks to some idiomatic political history, Vermont has a higher percentage of voters who are too far left for even the Democratic Party than anywhere else in the country – as evidenced by the fact that Vermont has an avowed Socialist elected as one of their two Senators, and they | Read More »
Lincoln Chafee Runs For President
America’s Blacksmith President? Lincoln Chafee is in! He is running for President! For the first time in centuries, a man who has worked professionally as a blacksmith* is gunning for The White House. The Republic is saved. He is running as the last vestige of the old, Liberal Northern GOP. If you wondered what had become of the Progressive Wing | Read More »
Rick Perry Enters the Arena
Today in Dallas, TX, Rick Perry will declare his candidacy for the President of the United States. It is his second time. Last time, Perry’s announced at the RedState Gathering in Charleston, SC in August of 2011 and surged quickly in the field to first place with almost a third of the Republican primary voters ready to back him. But several bad debate performances marginalized | Read More »
