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 »

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 »
Could the Supreme Court Create a Titanic Shift in Electoral Politics?
(From the diaries…bill s) Amid the recent spate of Supreme Court decisions as they wind up this term lost in the discussion is a potentially blockbuster case they accepted for review for the October 2015 term- Evenwell vs. Abbott. It, in fact, has the potential to change politics for years to come, perhaps generations. This “controversy” dates back to a 1964 decision- Reynolds vs. Sims- which established | 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 »
Open Letter to a Liberal Professor
(From the diaries…bill s) The heart of this entry is a letter I wrote in response to one specific liberal professor who made the mistake of attempting to embarrass me for holding conservative views. First let me share a little back-story. It was an online course on American Government, one that made use of a message board for class discussion and student interaction. After introductions | 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 »

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 »
