    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 »

    Creationism and Smart People Gone Stupid #EERS

    I’m not sure when so many smart people became so stupid, but suddenly as a Christian who believes in creation, Kathleen Parker, Bill Keller, Ryan Lizza, and others want me to know I think the world was created 6500 years ago, not the 4.5 billion or so years ago I’ve always thought.What is making so many smart people so stupid.We’ll get into that tonight and | 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 »

    When Will Newt Say When?

    One of the saddest spectacles of the 2012 season is seeing Newt Gingrich, who for so long was the ideas guy of the right, run out of steam.American Solutions, his once much heralded organization, is now shut down. Newt left the organization to run for President and it could not keep the lights on without Gingrich there.But Gingrich seems to be having trouble keeping the | Read More »

    PolitiFact Proves Yet Again It Is a Left Wing Attack Machine With Nonpartisan Veneer

    “Politifact’s fact is nothing more than their left-wing hypothesis disconnected from and ignoring every data point that doesn’t help them make their case.”As a general rule of thumb I heard somewhere, fact checkers don’t check facts. Fact checkers exist to put an objective, nonpartisan veneer on whatever some reporter wants to say. And when fact checkers take it upon themselves to be arbiters of truth, | Read More »

    Jon Huntsman’s Legitimacy: A Near Sexual Fantasy for Some on the Left

    At what point does Jon Huntsman’s campaign begin to look like a sexual fantasy for the some lefties in the media and the left in general and not like a Presidential campaign? At this point I think. His only useful purpose has become being the pin up Governor that the left can fixate on, breath lustily at, and whisper “if only the Republicans were like | Read More »
