Allah says, under a headline reading: Wildfire victims getting what’s coming to them, says Carlin No need for grandiose outrage here. He’s been saying stuff like this for decades. In fact it’s a core part of his act, which is why he’s allowed to skate. I offer the clip not as fodder for indignation but […]

Billy Beck, talking about Jenna:   My current conclusion: I have no real way of knowing what happened down there. In “the Information Age,” that’s a very remarkable fact. Don’t be so surprised.  Once people become dependent on “information” wasn’t the next logical progression that somebody would figure out how to manipulate it to their […]

Beck […]

I’m hearing the Disney folks are now into Martial Arts movies. They’ve managed to dig up some distant cousin of Bruce Lee to star in their first effort… “Honey, I Shrunk the Dragon”.

—  WASHINGTON — George W. Bush, despite all his recent bravado about being an apostle of small government and budget-slashing, is the biggest spending president since Lyndon B. Johnson.  In fact, he’s arguably an even bigger spender than LBJ. Well, David, they share one other major thing in common… they were both wartime Presidents. I […]

Well, now… no WONDER Foer was keeping so silent. Michelle says it very well indeed: I repeat Ace’s distillation for those who have only superficial knowledge of this scandal: Remember: TNR Hid The Existence Of This Phone Call From The World. To paraphrase the Clintons: It’s the cover-up, stupid. And TNR’s sliming of The Weekly […]

Joyner points up an AP story which labels Philadelphia Washington and Dallas as the places where the least attractive people in the United States congregate. I wasn’t even aware there was a contest.  And attractiveness, is such a subjective thing to measure.  Was it really that slow a news day, that they needed to cough this […]

Sounds rather like a forthcoming football game, doesn’t it? Interestingly, this little subtext drama gets played out in the sports venue of each city. (Sigh) I haven’t even attempted to cover the fires in SouCal. I’m simply not equipped for the task. So I’ve not said much if anything at all about the goings on, […]

If you’re the president, do you visit southern California under these circumstances?  Mark Finkelstein over at Newsbusters points out that President Bush’s going, at least as far as we know right now, but points out that no matter what happens, no matter what he does, if he goes or does not, the left is going […]

Megan McArdle: Ezra and Brian are complaining that it’s hard to get anything done these days: I think it’s almost certainly wrong that we’re not overwhelmed by the volume of tragedy in the world — there’d have to be something genuinely wrong with you to be able to absorb the current moment in some coherent […]

You’d like to think that one place our nations laws would be respected would be in the Halls of Congress.    Not if you are a democrat, who planned to flout our nation’s immigrantion laws by using illegal aliens as props.   Martin Kady, Crypt,  has the sordid detail: Democrats knew they were embracing the touchy subject of […]

If ‘immigration”  is as hot as subject in the selection of our next President as I think it will be, Fred Thompson has just won not only the nomination, but the election, as well.
