    Reciprocal Courtesy On a Bridge Too Far

    Maybe had the libertarians done a better job of preventing their party from being overrun with libertines — a group of people who couldn’t care less about the size and scope of government as long as their desires for one night stands with a bag of weed and a tranny from 7th and Broadway are unimpeded by government — we wouldn’t be having these issues | Read More »

    Media Matters Helps Prove the CDC Did Cover Up Abortion Data

    It was certainly not intentional, but the leftwing interest group Media Matters for America has uncovered an internal memo from the CDC proving the CDC did in fact cover up and suppress abortion data until RedState revealed the coverup. On Thursday, I reported that the Centers for Disease Control was covering up abortion data. Each year since 1969, the Centers for Disease Control has published | Read More »

    The CDC Coverup Now Turns to Bureaucratic Panic

    “The CDC told us last week there were ‘no plans’ to release the data. The CDC now says it is scheduled for ‘this month’. Did the CDC just not bother looking at the editorial calendar it now tells us is booked ‘well in advance’?” It’s never the action, it’s the cover up.Yesterday RedState broke a significant story which points to the Centers for Disease Control | Read More »

    74 or 35 or More of the Same. The Pledge to Nowhere Comes Back to Bite the GOP on the Bottom.

    “We will put government on a path to a balanced budget and pay down the debt with a plan to … Cut government spending to pre-stimulus, pre-bailout levels saving at least $100 billion in the first year alone.” — A Pledge to America I was roundly attacked for calling the Republicans’ “Pledge to Nowhere” a lot of pablum. Guess what? I was right. The Republicans | Read More »

    Obama Administration Covering Up Abortion Data *Updated*

    Let’s be clear: promoting science isn’t just about providing resources – it is also about protecting free and open inquiry. It is about letting scientists … do their jobs, free from manipulation or coercion, and listening to what they tell us, even when it’s inconvenient – especially when it’s inconvenient. It is about ensuring that scientific data is never distorted or concealed to serve a | Read More »

    Is John McCain Back to Being a Maverick Now?

    In Donald Rumsfeld’s new book, he characterizes John McCain as having a “hair-trigger temper” with “a propensity to shift his positions to appeal to the media.”McCain has struck back saying how happy he is that Rumsfeld was ultimately forced out.Of course this does not change Rumsfeld’s characterization. McCain is, after all, the man who claimed for years to be a straight talking maverick who rode | Read More »

    How The Stupid Party Gets Its Name

    Barack Obama’s Egypt Failure: He’s Becoming Carter Faster Than Carter Became Carter

    Barack Obama’s failure in Egypt has nothing to do with Egypt itself descending to chaos. No American administration has been willing to call Hosni Mubarak a dictator, which he is. And no administration has sought to strong arm Mubarak into a succession plan devoid of kleptocratic relatives.We cannot blame Barack Obama for Egypt collapsing in on itself.We can however blame Barack Obama for failing to | Read More »
