New species: Moonbatus Stalkus

Tuesday, January 31st, 2006

Cindy Sheehan got booted out of the State of the Union address this evening. Anyone following this moonbat stalker shouldn’t be surprised. Here are some pics: Chatty Cindy Buh-bye Moonbat At least she showered, combed her hair, and put on some decent clothes for her little mission to the State of the Union address. Whatever. […]

Moonbat of the Day

Monday, January 30th, 2006 has this ridiculous piece on a Democrat challenger for Congress, Coleen Rowley, who has Photoshopped a picture of her opponent, John Kline, as a Nazi in uniform. Check out a snapshot of the web page here. Notice the text to the right of her name: Ethical Decision-Making? Maybe she’s waiting to be elected before […]

BB&T Takes a Stand

Thursday, January 26th, 2006

I bank with BB&T and have thought about changing, but an article in today’s Washington Times may make me change my mind. The title of the article is BB&T Opposes Eminent Domain, and here’s a quote from the CEO: “The idea that a citizen’s property can be taken by the government solely for private use […]

Pedophile decked by Dad

Thursday, January 26th, 2006

The Sun-Sentinel has this story on a man who decks a school aide accused of molesting his daughter (and other girls) at school. Given recent cases of pedophiles receiving light sentences, if any, for their awful crimes, one can hardly blame this guy. If the school worker is convicted, all charges on Dad should be […]

Hoorah Canada!

Tuesday, January 24th, 2006

Congratulations to Stephen Harper for leading his Conservative Party out of the woods yesterday. Not surprisingly, as the campaign wound down and the liberals began to panick, Paul Martin, the current Prime Minister, stole a page from Herr Schroeder’s playbook, accusing Mr. Harper of being an “American-style” conservative. I didn’t follow this election too closely, […]

And the Winner is…

Saturday, January 21st, 2006

powerlineblog is reporting the winner of the Miss America pageant…and, the winner is…Miss Oklahoma. Damn. I mean, congratulations, but we were hoping for Miss Georgia who is, simply put, a babe. John at powerline was likewise inclined: Personally, I liked the less-tall-and-skinny Miss Georgia, who played the piano well and turned out to be the […]

No one remembers Abraham Lincoln’s agricultural policy

Amazingly, it was 25 years ago today that Ronald Wilson Reagan was inaugurated as the 40th President of the United States. On this occasion, check out What Reagan knew by Richard Reeves at Reagan, a stubborn and determined old man not greatly interested in learning anything new, instinctively understood the presidency in important ways […]

Missile Meets Khabab. Khabab Meets Virgins.

Thursday, January 19th, 2006

As we blogged here, it appears that the US missile strike in Pakistan took out Midhat Mursi al-Sayid Umar, better known as Abu Khabab al-Masri. For a better understanding of who this terrorist was (prior to his untimely meeting with a missile fired from an unmanned Predator drone), read Al Qaeda’s Mad Scientist by Dan […]

I-ran (and Stuck my Head in the Sand)

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

We have blogged here and here on the awful choices we face in dealing with Iran and the nuclear aspirations of its mullah leaders. In today’s Washington Post, Charles Krauthammer’s op-ed piece, entitled The Iran Charade, Part II, rightly mocks the feckless efforts of Britain, France and Germany to convince Iran to halt its nuclear […]

These New Lips Are Made For Smoking

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

Europeans like to laugh at us Americans for our teetotaling, zero-tolerance approach to life, be it smoking, drinking, religion or fitness. At the same time, we Americans derive great humor from the unwashed, condescending, smoking Europeans. Of course, these are bad and (to a large degree) outdated stereotypes. Well, here’s a story out of France […]

The Saddam-Al Qaeda Connection

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

We’ve written on the recent article by Stephen Hayes on the Saddam-Al Qaeda links here and here. But, there’s much more to this connection than Hayes documents in his excellent article. Don’t miss Thomas Smith’s article, The Saddam-Al Qaeda Connection, on the many connections between the dictator and the terror networks targeting the West. Last […]

Gore to Star in Brokeback Mountain Sequel…Alone

Tuesday, January 17th, 2006

This is funny. I can only add that Al Gore is perfect for this role given his oft-proven ability to screw himself. Gore to Star in Brokeback Mountain Sequel…Alone: by Scott Ott (2006-01-17) — Former Vice President Al Gore, who won the popular vote in the 2000 presidential election, yesterday made another in a series […]

Ham-handed Dems didn’t lay a glove on Alito

Sunday, January 15th, 2006

Check out Mark Steyn’s latest, Ham-handed Dems didn’t lay a glove on Alito: Even smear tactics require a certain plausibility. When you damn someone as a big scary mega-troubling racist misogynist homophobe and he seems to any rational observer perfectly non-scary and non-troubling, eventually you make yourself ridiculous. The boy who cried “Wolf!” at least […]
