Open Thread in a Handbasket
Via Gizmodo: . (Click thumbnail for full view.) Dude. What a hell-hole! Apparently Jim Joyce* REALLY should have called Donald “out”. Incidentally I hear Joyce recently endorsed Guatemala as the most “Gates of Hell-free nation on Earth.” When asked what he thought about the hole, he replied “looks safe to me.” I’m just kidding around. In all seriousness, BP could not be reached for comment. | Read More »
NBC anchor to Obama: ‘That ain’t the way this is going to play out.’
Via Ed Morrissey: I got a kick out of President Obama saying that even when the cameras go away we’ll still be there for you. That ain’t the way this is going to play out. If anything, the cameras being here have compelled outside interests – government, BP – to kick this into another gear. With all due respect, the President might have had his | Read More »
“Sestak Job Offer Violated Federal Law?”
Hans von Spakovsky & Cully Stimson have the top story at Human Events this morning: Federal statutes seem to contradict a memorandum from the White House counsel released on Friday that claimed that no law was violated when Rep. Joe Sestak was offered a government post in exchange for dropping out of the Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary against Sen. Arlen Specter. White House Press Secretary | Read More »

Obama to Seniors: ‘Drop Dead’
Robert E. Moffit has the top story today at Human Events: According to surveys, no group of Americans is more skeptical of Obamacare than senior citizens—and with good reason. While bits and pieces of the massive law are designed to appeal to seniors—more taxpayer subsidies for the Medicare drug benefit, for example—much of the financing over the initial ten years is siphoned off from an | Read More »
Megyn Kelly on Joe McGinniss: “Deplorable”
Via Palin Twibe: Anyone who can’t see the creep factor in this either has their blinders on or their blinds closed and their binoculars out. (Lookin like a fool with your pants on the ground.) The smarmy lefties batting their eyelashes and coyly pretending not to see a problem aren’t fooling anyone. Setting up a 24/7 surveillance unit on a politician’s home and family life | Read More »
From GOP.com: Join us in asking the White House tough questions via Twitter by directing them to Gibbs’ Twitter handle @PressSec and using the hashtag #AskGibbs. I’m in. Good times. Do join us, won’t you? The tag is going gangbusters, and even the MSM is getting huffy. Feel free to post your tweets in the comments. (Include the link so people can retweet you.) And | Read More »
Joe Biden to EU: You Got This
The Obama World Apology tour never seems to end, does it? Although over time, it has morphed from apologizing for perceived wrongs committed against poor little rest of the world by mean old America, into simply apologizing for mean old America existing in the first place. At every step this administration eschews the idea of American leadership and declares the virtue of world governing bodies. | Read More »
“Why There Should Be No Mosques at Ground Zero”
Robert Spencer has the top story today at Human Events: Now that it has been revealed that not one, but two mosques are planned for the area around Ground Zero, the supremacist and triumphalist character of this effort is clearer than ever. Is the Muslim population of lower Manhattan so huge that one projected mosque—even one so large as to be housed within a 15 | Read More »
Parking Would Be Difficult, Staying Alive Even Harder.
Dale Robertson is all over the blogosphere this morning. As reported at The Minority Report, Stix Blog, Mediaite, The Washington Post, and most importantly, right here at Redstate, Robertson’s PR flack sent out a press release yesterday touting his new position as Tea Party columnist for the Washington Times (full text below the fold). Yes, the “N-word sign” guy. Yikes. As a result of the | Read More »
Welcome to Diversity University
Listen to the Fox and Rice Experience, up top today at Human Events: FRX would like to wish the class of 2010 and all the college students graduating around the nation over the next few weeks, good luck. Good luck being unemployed. But hey, look on the bright side: now that you’re done draining your dad’s savings dry for tuition payments, you can mooch off | Read More »
Radical Islam? Never Heard Of It.
This is a few days old (ancient in blog years) but it’s instructive nevertheless: . This position is the inevitable refuge: simple denial. Once it becomes clear that a truth cannot be assimilated into his leftist worldview, he simply Ministry of Truths it out of being. There is a lot of whitewashing going on during this euphemism-prone administration, but self-appointed Imam Alan Colmes’ declaration of | Read More »
Coming Soon: Scoring Points Through Activism
Next week, GOP.com will be debuting a new API, the purpose of which is to encourage people to blog, tweet, facebook, tag, tumblr, digg … well, let’s just summarize it as “get their internet on” in pursuit of winning elections. It’s not the first API released by Republicans. The House GOP released the Anywhere API, which allows developers to focus on keeping tabs on big | Read More »

Rules, Glorious Rules!
Citizens, attention! The government makes hundreds upon hundreds of rules every year using a vast network of agencies and bodies and other such wondrous government words.
