WBBM-TV is reporting: CHICAGO (CBS) ? You may have seen him stubbornly standing up to an invasion of evil robots this summer in “Transformers,” but if you were in downtown Chicago early Sunday, you may have seen him stubbornly standing up to security guards at a local Walgreens. Chicago police say actor Shia LaBeouf was […]

From the UK comes word that Santa has been ordered to slim down. Santa is being told to shift the pounds before Christmas – because the obese saint is failing to set a “good example” for children. The traditional children’s hero, best known for feasting on mince pies left out on Christmas eve, has always […]

OK, winter is coming, time to get the player going. I was amused to see a rather unique record label… Real World Records… (Since we’re Politics from the Real World, here) while snaking my way through the used record isle the other day.   The label, as I gather it was founded by Peter Gabriel.  The […]

Summer has been so damned busy, I’ve not had much time to do any serious reading, except when we were camping. Some summers are like that. [bookcover:1400054206] With winter coming on up here…(We’re expecting snow, here, come Thursday) I’ve started the reading list where I left off, where I’d just started Godless, by Ann Coulter. […]

I was interested to see Blue Crab Blvd commenting on the possibility of Rosie O’Donnel showing up at MS-NBC: The Melted Steely Knoll Troll and the Mouth That Roared Lies together at last. Obviously, MSNBC is trying to corner the moonbat market. Yeah, well, thing is, they’re certainly not going to do much ratings damage […]

Well it is if you are a democrat.   Has  Jenny Ballantine become the symbol of the democrat party? Ann Coulter: via J0hn Hawkins, Right Wing News. “If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat president.

The natives are restless, over at the house of Kos: I want to stand by and watch it all blow up. I want the dollar to plunge to worthless paper. I want the stock market to implode. I want the economy to plunge into chaos. I want the Chinese to call in all the debt […]

Billy Beck makes a point that I made yesterday: Doug Mataconis links and quotes Radley Balko on the latest rumblings among the savages: “This is why ‘spreading democracy’ is such a foolish foreign policy objective. There are lots of places in the world where we don’t particularly want a democracy. What do we do, now […]

I spoke the other day about Voter Fraud, Motor Voter, Spitzer, and the Democrats ,and their plan to give driver’s licenses to illegals in order to facilitate that vote fraud. I see John Edwards has started touting a plan similar to the one Spitzer has been trying to foist off on us. We’re told that the excuse for […]

Gerry Willis , in the Los Angeles Times,  attempts a tortured defense of the practice of abortion: But is abortion murder? Most people think not. Evangelicals may argue that most people in Germany thought it was all right to kill Jews. But the parallel is not valid. Killing Jews was killing persons. It is not demonstrable that […]

Michelle notes that to get the story of what’s happening in Iraq, you need to turn to the newspapers… in Austrailia. IT is whispered about at the margins of meetings, and discussed in Washington parties where rumour is passed around with the wine and canapes. It even appears, fleetingly, to be fact. “The day nobody […]
