The Ant and the Community Organizer

Friday, September 26th, 2008

This is pretty funny, in a sad and pathetic kind-of-way. Still, it may be good for a laugh in a week that’s been short on humor.

The “No Regulation” Myth

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

Uncle Tom, Uncle Mom

Friday, September 19th, 2008

Democrats like to remind us how “tolerant” they are. They are the party of “diversity” and “multiculturalism.” If you believe that, you’re choking on the Kool-Aid. To leftists, women and minorities who stray from the rigidly-ideological liberal plantation are sellouts to their “kind”. They are Uncle Toms or, maybe, “Uncle Moms”. For example, Sarah Palin […]

Monday, September 15th, 2008
