From the quips list: I would put Glenn Greenwald calling anyone’s masculinity into question, on par with Greenwald’s Hero, Harry Reid, calling anyone “incompetent”, and for the same reason. I should have put something in there about Dennis Kucinich, I guess.   PHILADELPHIA – Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich questioned President Bush‘s mental health in […]

McQ at Q&O: Seems the only real case of voter disenfranchisement in ’04 may have been perpetrated by the Democrats: Consumer advocate and 2004 independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader sued the Democratic Party on Tuesday, contending officials conspired to keep him from taking votes away from nominee John Kerry. Nader’s lawsuit, filed in District of […]

Look, let’s call this what it is: Saying that Glen Greenwald is a drooling, lying, sock puppeting idiot, is not a political statement.  Provacative, perhaps, and arguably correct, but it’s not political. And that goes for Greg Mitchell, too. See, here’s the thing… the likes of Greenwald and Mitchell, can moralize all they want, and […]

You know,  there are a lot of pathetic sights in this world… and we’ve pointed a number of them out here. But I have to say that this one knows few equals. Even as a Bills fan, I can sympathize… almost.

We recently posted about how the Democrats… particularly those in his home state of Pennsylvania should have had enough long ago, and should start moving to remove him from office.  Interestingly, there’s a number of Democrats looking to do exactly that to Nancy Pelosi, says Michelle Malkin.  Check out the latest Field Poll results in […]

Ya know, there is a certain point at which BDS leaves the world of the slightly mad, and moves into the world of the utterly insane. The KOSacks are pole vaulting over that line, today:  I wrote a diary a short time ago about how the Bush administration helped ruin my marriage.  It wasn’t because […]

Mike Goldfarb at the Weekly Standard: The Wall Street Journal reports on the stunning success of Representative John Murtha in channeling taxpayer dollars to pork-barrel projects in his district, including awards for companies under FBI investigation and others which show no results, as well as many for projects the Pentagon did not request. Johnstown’s good […]

I’ll expect the same outrage for Pelosi’s actions, if not more, that FEMA generated by staging a press conference. The Hill is reporting that Speaker of the House Pelosi (D) is concerned that Republicans will use the Rangel’s “controversial new tax bill ” against them in 2008 that she altered the transcript of said tax […]

Doctor Thomas Sowell points up something I’ve discussed here previously: It is remarkable how many political “solutions” today are dealing with problems created by previous political “solutions.” Three examples that come to mind immediately are the housing -market crisis, the wildfires in southern California, and the water shortages in the west. Congress and the Bush […]

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 —NY TIMES- State Department investigators offered Blackwater USA security guards immunity during an inquiry into last month’s deadly shooting of 17 Iraqis in Baghdad — a potentially serious investigative misstep that could complicate efforts to prosecute the company’s employees involved in the episode, government officials said Monday.

Oooh… interesting. At least to a radio person. I see Boortz is now on 1260/KGIL. I wasn’t aware they’d gone News/Talk. Last I was out there, (early 97) they were running an all- Beatles format. No, I’m not kidding.  Hell, they’ve tried everything over the years on that channel Jazz, for which they claimed the […]

Tony Snow has a firm grip on reality:  On the newspaper business: “The newspapers have to realize that they are a niche market and the one thing they can do better than anyone else is analysis. As a guy who spent the majority of his career in print media and loves writing, it scares me […]
