    Bob Corker, Craven Moron

    Bob Corker, Craven Moron

    It is difficult, in this hyper partisan era, to find areas of agreement between the chattering heads on the right and on the left. However, one thing that almost everyone can agree on is this: The Corker-Cardin Iran bill is an especially moronic display of political cowardice, even for modern day Senators. The first major problem with the Corker-Cardin bill is that it serves absolutely | Read More »

    And Now for some Stories that Have Nothing to Do With Baltimore

    And Now for some Stories that Have Nothing to Do With Baltimore

    All the news seems to be focused on Baltimore these days, with lots of commentary about the riots and/or the news coverage thereof. So I thought it would be good to have some coverage of some stories that have absolutely nothing to do with Baltimore whatsoever – just completely unrelated things that do not at all pertain to the civil unrest there at all. First | Read More »

    Rubio vs. The Field

    Rubio vs. The Field

    In sports, whenever there is a prohibitive favorite that has to compete against a crowded field (especially in sports where the outcome is hard to predict), a popular game sports talkers like to play is to play “Prohibitive favorite vs. the field – who would you pick?” For example, in the NCAA basketball tournament this year, Kentucky was a roughly even bet to win the | Read More »

    Tell the House to Pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

    Tell the House to Pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

    Thanks to the craven capitulation of Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) 58%, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) 82% and others, the House failed in February to pass an abortion bill that enjoys support from 60% of the American public. However, the House is considering rectifying this error and bringing the bill back up for consideration. It’s time to hit the phones and | Read More »

    Jeb Bush is Not Ready for Prime Time

    Jeb Bush is Not Ready for Prime Time

    Way back when the Scott Walker campaign was first getting going and was stealing a not inconsiderable amount of momentum from the Jeb Inevitability Tour, he took a trip to England as part of his actual job as governor of Wisconsin. While there, he was asked a stupid and pointless question about evolution, which he refused to answer on the grounds that it was irrelevant | Read More »

    “Police” Accidentally Shoot Unarmed Man in Tulsa

    "Police" Accidentally Shoot Unarmed Man in Tulsa

    This is a pretty terrible story out of Tulsa. The incident occurred a couple of weeks ago when police were chasing an unarmed suspect on foot. The suspect in question had been caught and corralled by the police and was on the ground when he was shot. The official story by the Tulsa PD is that the officer in question meant to reach for his | Read More »

    Who Is this Person in the #WalterScott Shooting Video?

    Who Is this Person in the #WalterScott Shooting Video?

      UPDATE: Per Greg Pollwitz on Twitter, this officer is named Clarence Habersham. I will be submitting an open records request for Officer Habersham’s Incident Report today; however, I expect probable stonewalling. Some members of the legacy media who are covering this story should demand to see this report as soon as possible. Only public pressure will cause the North Charleston PD to release this information. | Read More »

    Why Do Sabrina Rubin Erdely’s Rape Stories Keep Falling Apart?

    Why Do Sabrina Rubin Erdely's Rape Stories Keep Falling Apart?

    As of this moment, we are now up to three stories about rape that Sabrina Rubin Erdely has written that would not pass responsible journalistic muster. The most prominent, of course, being the now-withdrawn and discredited UVA hoax, the second being this story about “Billy Doe” in Philadelphia, and the third being her story about Petty Officer Rebecca Blumer. Sabrina Rubin Erdely is trying to | Read More »

    South Carolina Police Officer Charged with Murder After Shooting Unarmed Man in the Back

    South Carolina Police Officer Charged with Murder After Shooting Unarmed Man in the Back

    Here is a story that once again demonstrates that the most important public service you can perform is to record the police at every opportunity. I was first alerted to this story by Ace, who has a portion of the video at his site. A longer version of the video is available at the New York Times, who apparently were the original recipients of the | Read More »

    Sabrina Rubin Erdely’s OTHER Possibly Fake Rape Story

    Everyone I spoke to in connection with this investigation was crystal clear that at no point did Sabrina Erdely or Rolling Stone ever contact them whatsoever, even to ask for background information. This is exactly the same lapse in journalistic standards that doomed the UVA story and ultimately led to its retraction. The fact that it occurred in this story is indication of a systemic problem with Rolling Stone and Sabrina Erdely’s reporting, not of a single lapse in judgment.

    Surprise! The Rand Paul Store Blatantly Caters to the Paranoid

    Surprise! The Rand Paul Store Blatantly Caters to the Paranoid

    Well, surprise surprise, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 87% is officially running for President. However, in the category of actually surprising news, Paul’s basic argument for his primary candidacy is… that he’s the most electable candidate in the field. Seriously. Paul gave a sneak peak into what his message will be in a pre-announcement video that has been prominently featured on the influential conservative | Read More »

    And on this Day, America Returned

      It has been a long, cold winter. Over the last five months, we have braved unusually bitter temperatures, unusually bitter disappointments with our government, discord in the world at large, and the emergence of Meghan Trainor as a thing. But today, as we emerge from yet another unusually late brutal national cold snap, people all across America will begin a ritual. They will wake | Read More »
