Charlie vs. Charlie: Education!
Charlie VS. Charlie: Education! We all know Charlie Crist used to be a Republican. We also know he is now running for Governor of Florida as a Democrat.

Rick Perry: Flip-Flopper (Updated)
A profoundly dishonest narrative about the Republican presidential field has taken root in the blogosphere. Mitt Romney, we’re told, is the smooth-talking phony whose conservatism is mostly fraudulent, while Rick Perry is the “conservative of conviction” whose only real shortcomings concern presentation. Though this narrative depends on several disingenuous attacks on Romney, it must be admitted that Romney is far from ideal, and his actual | Read More »

Obama Administration HALTS Prosecution of USS Cole Bomber?
Wasn’t it Obama who said: “It’s time to better protect the American people and our values by bringing swift and sure justice to terrorists…” So why is it that a year later, Obama is not just delaying “swift and sure justice to terrorists”… but bringing it to a screeching halt?

Hope and Change and Culture and Civility
In our super-secret Contributor’s Conclave, we were discussing a certain Presidential candidate of notorious metrosexual proclivities, who had the bald effrontery to wear flip-flops with a blazer and slacks. And the question quite logically was asked: “This guy is supposed to bring culture and civility back to the White House?” To the best of my knowledge, Obama has promised Hope and Change, rather than culture | Read More »

Obama Tells Us What He Won’t Do
From an AP wire story, we hear that Senator Obama believes the US economy is in recession. If you’re in business or you follow business, your response is likely to be “No [excrement], Sherlock.” What frustrates me no end, however, are statements like these, which are being spun as His Highness’ “most definitive” statements yet on the economy: “I have little doubt that we’ve moved | Read More »
