    Feckless Liberals Discover a Use for Amy Schumer

    Feckless Liberals Discover a Use for Amy Schumer

    Even as a fairly voracious consumer of stand up comedy, I have never been a huge fan of Amy Schumer’s schtick. It’s not that I find Schumer offensive; offensive comedy done well (see, e.g., Anthony Jeselnik) can be quite entertaining and willfully suspending your sense of outrage is a prerequisite to enjoying almost any stand up comedian. I just don’t think she’s very funny, when | Read More »

    Ted Cruz Has Earned a Second Look From Us All

    Ted Cruz Has Earned a Second Look From Us All

    I like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% a lot as a Senator, but I have never been a huge fan of his candidacy for President – at least until now. Generally speaking, I prefer governors to Senators, and I have an especial wariness for first term Senators. Additionally, I have questions about Cruz’s ability as a coalition builder and I know that | Read More »

    The Curtain Rises Today on Act 2 of the Planned Parenthood GOP Failure Theater

    The Curtain Rises Today on Act 2 of the Planned Parenthood GOP Failure Theater

    Now you’re looking for the secret, but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking.  You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. By now the way the GOP does pretty much everything in the Senate has become as formulaic and predictable as a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. In Act 1, some Republican Senator – usually | Read More »

    The Cringing, Servile Search for Head Pats from Liberals

    The Cringing, Servile Search for Head Pats from Liberals

    There is a piece that is making the rounds on the liberal side of the Internet today that concerns the Planned Parenthood videos. I am not going to link the piece here because I view it as either a transparent attempt to curry head pats from liberals and/or the media, or a dangerously naive missive that is tremendously damaging to the pro-life cause. Either way, | Read More »

    The Stammering Non-Defense of Planned Parenthood

    The Stammering Non-Defense of Planned Parenthood

    Because they are the favored ideology of the American legacy media, liberals are not often called upon to mount a strenuous intellectual defense of their institutions and beliefs. As a result, they are spectacularly bad at doing so, on the rare occasion that one of their institutions actually faces a grave threat. Never has that been more apparent than during the current Planned Parenthood scandal. | Read More »

    The Center for Medical Progress and Our Broken Rule of Law

    The Center for Medical Progress and Our Broken Rule of Law

    The ongoing Planned Parenthood scandal is a fascinating story that has a lot of facets that illustrate many disturbing aspects of American society. Although it is difficult to do so, I’m going to ask readers here to set aside the horrifying aspects related to abortion and the sale of baby parts for a moment to focus on one particular aspect that has largely gone unnoticed. | Read More »

    Time for the GOP to Crap or Get Off the Pot

    Time for the GOP to Crap or Get Off the Pot

    Anyone who has known me for longer than about 30 minutes knows that I am a Boston Red Sox fan. After the collapse in the 1986 World Series, that experience was, for about 15 years, an unmitigated experience of misery and the addition of reasons for Red Sox fans to nurse their massive inferiority complex with respect to the New York Yankees. However, beginning in | Read More »

    The GOP Senate is Not On Our Side

    The GOP Senate is Not On Our Side

    We have reached the point where a clear majority of sitting Republican Senators do not deserve your vote even in the general election. I say this because, quite simply, they have demonstrated time and time again that they are not on our side. Instead, they are on their own side. The priorities that these nattering, out of touch buffoons have embraced are so far out | Read More »

    Politifact vs. Facts (and Rick Perry)

    Politifact vs. Facts (and Rick Perry)

    Over the last few years, a number of (allegedly) non-partisan fact checking organizations have come out that purport to provide a neutral analysis of the claims of politicians. I’m at a loss as to what function these organizations are even supposed to provide – at least over and above what you could find for yourself through competent use of Google. In reality, of course, they | Read More »

    The 20 Most Unlikable TV Characters of the Last Decade

    The 20 Most Unlikable TV Characters of the Last Decade

    This isn’t the sort of thing we do here normally but, what the heck, it’s Sunday, and I’m bored. Plus, I’ve watched a lot of TV over the last ten years. So when I woke up this morning at 5:00am to deal with a fussy baby, and the idea for this post popped into my head, I decided to run with it. So here we | Read More »

    Blake Hounshell and the Fake Objectivity of the Modern Press

    Blake Hounshell and the Fake Objectivity of the Modern Press

    There are a lot of news stories that happen from day to day when the press somehow manages to come to a consensus that what has happened is a Bad Thing. For instance, when Donald Trump released Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) 44%‘s personal cell phone number, the tone (and sometimes outright content) of mainstream reporting indicated that Trump had done a Bad | Read More »

    Harper Lee and the Fake Persecution of Mewling Feminists

    I haven’t been following the latest round of controversy surrounding Harper Lee’s authorship of To Kill a Mockingbird; this isn’t even an area of hobby study of mine and so I choose not to make a fool of myself by wading into these waters. I will assume that Lee wrote To Kill a Mockingbird until someone comes forth with what I consider to be convincing evidence to | Read More »

    Trump and the Abdication of Responsibility

    Trump and the Abdication of Responsibility

    So we now have to accept that we live in a world where Donald Trump is, right now, leading in the GOP polls. It goes without saying that Donald Trump is, as a result, an absolute embarrassment to the entire GOP electorate, in that he gains popularity even as plays twitter troll with all the talent and finesse of an adolescent prep school boy. Yes, | Read More »
