Military officers resigning over policy differences is a bad idea
Last week it was reported that Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn was urging general/flag officers in the US Armed Forces to resign if they disagreed with Obama over policy: During a question-and-answer portion of the forum, a service member urged Lamborn to work with his congressional colleagues in both parties to “support the generals and the troops in this country despite the fact that there is | Read More »
White House: Will no Democrat ask us to fire this meddlesome AG?
This is what we in the business call a hint . Over the course of four and a half years, no other member of President Obama’s cabinet has been at the center of so many polarizing episodes or the target of so much criticism. While the White House publicly backed Mr. Holder as he tried to smooth over the latest uproar amid new speculation about | Read More »
Surely You’re Joking, Dr. Chu!
The creation of a incredible mythology for departing Sec. of Energy Steven Chu is underway. Incredible, as in “lacking credibility”.

Time for Attorney General Eric Holder to Resign
The Wikileaks debacle is the latest proof that Eric Holder has no understanding of the dangerous times we live in. His ineptness, as head of the Department of Justice, is putting our nation in a vulnerable position. Earlier this week, the Wikileaks website jeopardized our nation’s security and diplomacy by releasing hundreds of thousands of U.S. State Department documents. The same site put our troops | Read More »
General McChrystal-Insubordinate or Sending a Message?
The recent Rolling Stone article that exposed General McChrystal’s dissatisfaction with the Obama administration has caused quite a ruckus. It still remains to be seen, at the time of this writing, whether the General will be fired or resign due to the indignation of his Commander in Chief. The general consensus appears to be that the General was reckless in his speech and lowered his | Read More »
Charlie Wrangled: to step down as Ways & Means Chair.
UPDATE: OH MY GOD HE’S GOING TO GO DOWN SWINGING THIS IS THE GREATEST THING EVER. Ahem. Charlie Rangel emerged from a closed-door meeting in Nancy Pelosi’s office Tuesday night to declare that he’s still the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee and hasn’t agreed to give up his gavel – even as some media outlets were reporting that he’d done just that. Karma. | Read More »

Let’s all meet Kevin Jennings. His official title is: Assistant Deputy Secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools at the U.S. Department of Education.

Breaking News: Van Jones has resigned as “Green Czar”
MSNBC and FoxNews.com are reporting this tonight. Few details as yet. Story now up at Foxnews.com (h/t izoneguy) Interesting time to be turning in one’s resignation – midnight Saturday night, on a holiday weekend. I guess this gives the MSM a chance to not report it again… UPDATE #1 Ironically, the first info to trickle out seems to be from the Washington Post, who ignored | Read More »
Palin to Andrea Mitchell: ‘You’re not listening to me’
Gov. Sarah Palin granted interviews to the legacy media yesterday, and each outlet added its own spin to its presentation of the story. One thing is obvious from watching the various videos and reading the stories: they don’t get it. Palin had to scold NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, for instance. “You’re not listening to me,” she admonished the ditzy reporter after Mitchell asked the governor a | Read More »
Exploding the ‘she abandoned her post’ meme
In the wake of Gov. Sarah Palin’s announcement that she will resign her office before the end of the month, she has been the target of considerable crtiticism from the punditocracy on both the left and the right who sneer that “she abandoned her post.” John Podhoretz says the charge is disengenuous: Strangely, neither of these commentators, nor anybody else for that matter, accused, say, | Read More »
If Sarah Palin had intended to make media heads collectively explode, she couldn’t have planned it better. She called a press conference on short notice, then announced that not only would she not seek a second term as Alaska’s governor, but she intended to resign later this month. All that would remain for her to do is pop some Orville’s, sit back and enjoy the | Read More »
So long Sarah
via TVguide.com I take it back. Her announcement I hoped was a political move. That was my initial reaction. Perhaps, it was optimism getting the better of me. But I was wrong. She’s gone. She’s really, truly gone. Over the last two hours I’ve been searching for every shred of information I can find. Here’s what I’ve come up with – nothing. If she was | Read More »
Practical Reaction in Action
The Wall Street Journal is asking for the heads of Chris Dodd and Barney Frank. I think we the people ought to start clamoring for it, too. I see the market tanking and am watching like everyone else. My opinion is that the market is panicked because no one seems to be doing anything about the government corruption that everyone by now knows is the | Read More »
