Well, that’s what the National Enquirer is ‘reporting”. The object of his supposed affection? Web Filmaker Rielle Hunter. The angle, here, of course, is that he’s cheating on his cancer stricken wife. Personally, I don’t figure the Breck girl has that kind of moxie.  That’s just me… but I don’t believe the story for a […]

Longtime readers will understand that it’s fairly rare for me to dive into the realm of sports.  At least, within the confines of the blog.  That alone will hip you to the idea that when I do so here, there’s something special going on. Check Jerry Bronkowski from Yahoo Sports, yesterday: CONCORD, N.C. – NASCAR […]

By way of Boortz, let’s check out another ‘offended Muslim” story. ┬áMuslim students at the University of Toronto demanded halal food on their campus. Fine. The school gave in and gave them a long-awaited halal option at an on-campus restaurant. The new menu started May 29th and made all chicken and beef certifiably halal. Despite […]

There could hardly be two more vapid individuals on the face of the planet, save possibly Al Gore.  (yes, that’s a “fat joke”) So it […]

The flip-flopping has started already? CANTERBURY, N.H. (AP) – Hillary Rodham Clinton called Barack Obama naive when he said he’d meet with the leaders of Iran without precondition.

George Soros, d.b.a. Think Progress, has his knickers is a twist because Fox dared to suggest that Al Gore has done little for world peace.  So what has Gore ever done to promote world peace?  TP goes so far as to list their purported criteria for the Nobel Peace Prize: The prize for peace was […]
