From the Mailbag: Don’t be like this in ten years edition.

With Three Ongoing Wars What Ever Happened to the Anti-War Movement?
By Myra Adams Despite the jubilation over the death of Osama Bin Laden, our nation’s overstretched and under-appreciated military will continue to be actively engaged in three undeclared wars — Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Libya. Perhaps Bin Laden’s demise will usher in new questions for President Obama about the present and future of our international entanglements. In the meantime while casualties and costs continue to | Read More »
HBO’s Palin Derangement Syndrome
In 2003, Charles Krauthammer coined the term, Bush Derangement Syndrome, defined as “the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency — nay — the very existence of George W. Bush.” By 2008, the syndrome progressed into Palin Derangement Syndrome. And in 2011, HBO caught the bug… Hollywood Republican

Breitbart Calls Hollywood to Task
At his Big Hollywood blog, Andrew Breitbart wonders the same thing many of us have been over the last eight years. How is it they can ignore the deaths of thousands of Americans on 9/11 and twist things to demonize a President they personally hate? Many of the celebrities that were central to demonizing and making life impossible for President Bush for eight loathsome years | Read More »
Bishop to Attack Bush in Inaugural Prayer for Obama.
As part of the Prayer for Barack Obama: Give him a quiet heart, for our Ship of State needs a steady, calm captain for these times, not a fierce warrior who knee-jerk reacts to every real or perceived threat. Nice to know that we’re going to start the new Administration off right: which is to say, with a petty slam against the previous one… Moe | Read More »
Think Progress notes an attempt to physically harm the President of the United States in Iraq and its commenters come out of the woodwork to express their approval and satisfaction. Ah, tolerance. Note, of course, that Think Progress is the propaganda arm of the Center for American Progress, which is working to facilitate transition issues for Team Obama (its president, John Podesta, is heading up | Read More »
Dumbest. New. York. Times. Editorial. Ever.
Demolished here. I read it and I think I am going to have an aneurysm. It’s amazing that Gail Collins is still employed by the Times after writing an article filled with complete claptrap.

On Congress’s Own Kangaroo Court
Yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee held a kinda sorta almost impeachment hearing for President Bush. The atmosphere was summarized perfectly by one witness: “I am really astonished at the mood in this room,” commented one witness, George Mason University School of Law professor Jeremy Rabkin. “The tone of these deliberations is slightly demented,” Rabkin said. “You should all remind yourselves that the rest of the | Read More »
