Richard Cohen Unleashes His Palin Derangement Syndrome
Richard Cohen, who normally has a column in the Washington Post, has a column in Investors Business Daily. He whines that in her book, Sarah Palin is taking him back to a time when he saw the word “colored” in front of a rooming house in D.C. back in 1952. See, Palin dared to take Michelle Obama to task when the current First Lady said | Read More »
Terror Trial Disaster, But Holder’s DoJ Pleased?
In what has turned out to have been a farce of a trial, a trial meant to prove a political point and having nothing to do with justice, terrorist Ahmed Ghailani was convicted on one count of conspiracy to commit murder, and could receive 20 years to life. The jury found the verminous terrorist not guilty of the remainder of the 280 charges, including all | Read More »
Gov.-elect Cuomo Opposes KSM Trial in NY; Libs Fear the Rule of Law
The Miami Herald: New York Gov.-elect Andrew Cuomo says he’s against trying the professed mastermind of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in his state. This comes a day after that most political of U.S. Attorneys General, Eric Holder, announced he was close to a decision on where KSM is to be tried (this assumes that Holder is still hellbent on trying these terrorists in the | Read More »
Yes, Olbermann. Didn’t watch it. Spoiler alert (if you really care): Allah has the details. There are two Mediaite clips over there, one from what is apparently the beginning of the show (yes, I chuckled), and one from what I gather was the end. Further spoiler alert. In the second clip, he actually is gracious enough to thank Jonah Goldberg, Bill Kristol, and Dana Loesch | Read More »
It Is To Laugh; Community-Based Reality Goes Off The Deep End
Olbermann is back on TV tonight. My response? Meh. I won’t watch him. I expect he will follow Rachel Maddow’s lead and blame Fox News for MSNBC’s policy (Vermont’s socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders wants the government to stop Comcast from acquiring NBC and MSNBC from GE for the same reason). Johnny Dollar does a great job of ripping Maddow and MSNBC a new one (Read | Read More »
If Democrats Would Only Admit Their Hypocrisy…
…but alas, it won’t happen. The Democratic National Committee has recently lent its voice to the false charges being laid against the Chamber of Commerce and American Crossroads, a group that Karl Rove is associated with. Spokesmen at the DNC and Crossroads are engaged in a war of words that started yesterday with DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse: Democratic National Committee communications director Brad Woodhouse is | Read More »
Watch How Sharron Angle Turns a Liberal Into a Blithering Idiot
To answer John Cole’s question at the end of this quite rude rebuttal to a piece by libertarian Tunku Varadarajan (Varadarajan calls himself that), I would say liberals. The key sentence from Varadarajan that Cole takes issue with is this: The big-government Bush Republicans have already been punished;… Cole becomes really incensed: It is almost like he is unaware that McConnell and Boehner and all | Read More »
Obamacare Judge: Americans are the Federal Government’s Serfs
Full Disclosure: I am not a lawyer nor a trained legal scholar. District Court Judge George Caram Steeh, a Clinton appointee, issued a ruling yesterday regarding Obamacare in Thomas More Law Center, et al. v. Obama, et al. (TMLC). Reading through his “judicial” opinion, I got the sense that the most pertinent parts were written by a Democratic political operative, not a judge; it’s the | Read More »
What Rights Have the Moonbats Taken Away From Americans?
I was in a conversation with a liberal and was asked what rights I’ve lost due to moonbats like him. Little does the individual know that it is quite a lot. I’ll list them out in order of the Amendments in the Bill of Rights. By no means is this an exclusive list (that is, I’m sure there are other items I didn’t list).
Krugman: Americans are Slaves to the Federal Government
Sometimes, ya just gotta do it, even if it makes you feel dirty. Reading Paul Krugman that is. Take today’s column; according to Krugman, the money we Americans earn for our work, whether it’s in our own businesses or from an employer, is actually the federal government’s money. How else can one explain this sentence: But these same politicians are eager to cut checks averaging | Read More »
Where the Left’s Logic Takes a Vacation
Both Steve Benen and Matt Yglesias address a particular item regarding Sharron Angle in an interview she did with the New York Times. The exchange: Q. Did Keynesian economics, the stimulus spending, work in the Depression of the ’30s? A. No. And I think history has really proven that to be true. Most economists agree that the thing that really worked, which is a sad | Read More »
Just How Tolerant Is The Left?
As they are always ready to tell everyone, those on the Left say they are morally superior human beings for their tolerance, because if they are in charge, everything will be done correctly. Take the Ground Zero mosque, for instance. The tolerance of those on the Left has gone so far as to extending their support for having the mosque built, at least to verbally | Read More »
Dishonest Hackery By Any Other Name Still Stinks
Lefty Matt Yglesias has a couple of posts that provide some insight into the liberal, statist, progressive mindset: “The Incentive Compatibility of Dictatorship” and “Better Fewer, But Better“. In both, Yglesias attempts to rationalize the topics he wants to discuss. Yet, something bothers me about both pieces. In the end, either Yglesias shows himself to be hopelessly naive (which is understandable considering he seems to | Read More »
What Do You Mean $2 Trillion Plus in Stimulus Wasn’t Large Enough? Get Real
New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has been whining for well over a year that the $787 billion Porkulus (which was rescored by the CBO to $862 billion; plus, neither of these figures factors in the accrued interest for this spending since it’s all borrowed money, so the total will be higher) wasn’t large enough to have fixed America’s economic problems. He did again yesterday | Read More »
Palin Derangement Syndrome at the Christian Science Monitor
Source: HarperCollins/AP Sarah Palin’s new book “America By Heart” is coming out this November. The Christian Science Monitor notes a new “scandal” regarding the cover shown above [note the horrible use of punctuation]: If her first book, “Going Rogue,” had a red theme – which invited the obvious liberal answer, “Going Rouge.” This one, “America by Heart,” has got the gray thing going. Gray sweater, | Read More »
