    Is Ryan Lizza An Idiot or Willfully Distorting Christian Theology?

    From Ben Domenech’s excellent Transom, I found out some news I did not have when I wrote yesterday about Ryan Lizza’s The New Yorker article where he got major, substantive facts wrong.One of the things Lizza did was tie Michele Bachmann to Francis Schaeffer and Nancy Pearcey, who Lizza opined are “dominionists.” Well, Schaeffer may be dead, but Nancy Pearcey is very much alive and | Read More »

    Ezra Klein vs. the Dictionary

    Ezra Klein is the twenty something leftwing hack who has never had a real job in the private sector beyond the lefty think tank and pundit shops in DC.

    When Smart People Write Dumb Things

    Whether you agree with Bill Keller of the New York Times or not, the man is not dumb. Whether you agree with Kathleen Parker or not, she is not dumb. Same with Ryan Lizza at the New Yorker. Yes, they may be center-left (or depending on who you talk to, center-right for Parker) and yes, Lizza is arguably more than center-left as is Keller. But | Read More »

    Politico’s Mike Allen: From McCain’s Senility to Perry’s Stupidity

    This is par for the course for the Politico.Mike Allen and Jonathan Martin are fixated on whether Rick Perry is too stupid to be President.Back in 2008, the same Mike Allen wondered if John McCain was going senile and making him unfit for the Presidency.This is rather typical of the Politico, which would rather be first than be right. Let me just repeat what I | Read More »
