“Government School Quality” Health Care

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

To imagine how horrific the US medical system would be under a Hillary or Obama socialized medicine scheme (we know they don’t like to call it that, but if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…), consider this story from our lucky neighbors up in Canada, where a woman in the Toronto […]

A Different Take on American Energy Usage

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

Michael Novak makes a fascinating point on American Energy — and Invention: Candidate Obama, like so many lefties, seems to believe anything bad about the United States, without even submitting it to critical thinking. He said on May 19, 2008, for example, that 3% of the world’s population (i.e., in his calculation, the United States) […]

Green Grow the Neo-Coms

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

(Hat tip: HR) James Lewis has a fantastic article in American Thinker, How crypto-Marxism won the Cold War. Our comments follow. Today, for the first time in American history we have two — count ’em, two — hard-core Leftists running for the Democrat Party nomination. The Left hasn’t had this kind of chance for power […]

“Appeaser” is thy Middle Name

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

Not content just to appease terrorists, Barack Obama wants to appease other countries who don’t “approve” of American’s lifestyle choices: “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” […]

Saxby Opposes Feinstein/Craig

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

Although we’re still furious at our Georgia Senators, well, we’ve got to give Saxby Chambliss credit for signing a letter opposing the illegal alien farmworker amendment that Democrats injected into the Iraq war supplemental bill. Where’s Johnny? (UPDATE: Johnny Isakson also signed the letter. Thank you, Senator. Our bad.) Build the damned fence.

Johnny and Saxby: Georgia’s Porkers

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

Georgia Senators Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson (standing, on right) initially supported the Shamnesty Bill with Ted Kennedy. One year later, these two embarrassments joined Democrats to pass the pork-laden Farm Bill. With friends like this, who needs enemies? Read Robert Novak’s, The GOP at the Trough: Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, 38 and having […]

“Me thinks he doth protest too much.”

Friday, May 16th, 2008

Many have pointed out that Obama and the Democrat’s faux outrage over Bush’s “negotiate with terrorists” remarks represents a confession of sorts. As Shakespeare put it, “Me thinks he doth protest too much.” (from K-Lo): Obama: “George Bush knows that I have never supported engagement with terrorists . . .” Obama: “I would meet directly […]

Facts are pesky, annoying things.

Friday, May 16th, 2008

Never let petty facts get in the way of the big theory. Facts are such pesky, annoying things that it’s better to just ignore them. It’s taken decades to tune the MSM propaganda machine so that these little, irritating kernels of truth can be effectively marginalized. Ignorance is bliss and feeling good about the environment […]

GOP Crap and Trade

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

This was on the RNC’s website yesterday (hat tip: K-Lo): McCain is dead wrong on the topic of anthropogenic global warming as are Joe Lieberman and Newt Gingrich. Now the national Republican party has decided to embrace the scam. George will has these questions: • You say that even if global warming turns out to […]

Thursday Night Jokes

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

It’s been a tough week, so here’s a bit-o comic relief: (HT: TJ) A man checking into a hotel accidentally elbowed in the chest the woman behind him. He turned to her, apologizing, “I’m sorry, Ma’am, but if your heart is as soft as your bosom then you are going to have a blessed life.” […]

NBC Busted: Global Warming Lies

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

If anthropogenic global warming is wrecking the planet, why are big media proponents resorting to fake footage and lies to make that case? We recently noted how Al Gore used fake footage in his movie, An Inconvenient Truth, and now NBC has been busted fabricating the news with fake global warming footage. Lying to make […]

Barbara Walters taken to the wood shed

Monday, May 5th, 2008

Ooooooh. Walters, in a bid to sell her new 612-page book, “Audition,” is pimping out former U.S. Senator Ed Brooke . . . telling the world that she had a long-term sexual affair with him, while he was married to another woman. … But the man she’s throwing under the bus is 88 years old. […]

Hanson on Obama-Wright

Friday, May 2nd, 2008

Victor Davis Hanson offers his Wright Postmortem on where this leaves Obama. We think Hanson is right-on, but we always think Hanson is right-on. Why the Obama Pass? I think we have sort of reached an impasse on Rev. Wright. Most Americans, I think, accept the following realties. Obama, by what he wrote in his […]

Ridiculously Unrealistic = Not Serious

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

The usual chorus of environmentalists and editorial writers has chimed in to attack President Bush’s recent speech on climate change. In his address of April 23, he put forth a goal of stopping the growth of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2025. “Way too little and way too late,” runs the refrain, followed […]
