Putting the security back in air travel, by Muchael J. Totten, New York Post: Security officials should pay less attention to objects, and more attention to people. The Israelis do. They are, out of dreadful necessity, the world’s foremost experts in counterterrorism. And they couldn’t care less about what your grandmother brings on a plane. […]

Dumbo’s Direction, from Eugene Robinson, RCP: For what it’s worth, my advice for Obama is to forget the Republicans.  Not literally, of course — the new House leadership is going to make itself hard to ignore. But ultimately, it’s the president who sets the agenda, and who ultimately is held accountable for America’s successes and […]

Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) too stupid to be Senator: More than just retransmission consent ailes our television markets. We need new catalysts for quality news and entertainment programming. I hunger for quality news. I’m tired of the right and the left. There’s a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say […]

Alvin Greene for President, if we run him, the blacks will vote for him.  from Meredeth Shiner, Poltico: “I’m the next president,” Greene said. “I’ll be 35 … just before November, so I was born to be president. I’m the man. I’m the man. I’m the man. Greene’s the man. I’m the man. I’m the […]

Newt boots it, or why Newt Gingrich should never again run for public office. Gingrich is the political version of Glenn Beck, a better than average mind sabotaged by the chronic problem talking before thinking.  Gingrich’s latest Beck moment, from David Brody, CBN News: President Obama has had an amazing career. He’s gone from State […]

Dumbo’s delusions, Barack Obama is, at best, a very ordinary man, with a very extraordinary ego, from Ralph R. Reiland, Pittsburgh Tribune: That might be the problem at the White House. U.S. Rep. Marion Berry, D-Ark., made public President Obama’s answer to conservative Democrats, worried about the unpopularity of ObamaCare in their districts, when they […]

Newsweak ponders if the presidency has grown too big for one mere mortal: Can any single person fully meet the demands of the 21st-century presidency? Obama has looked to many models of leadership, including FDR and Abraham Lincoln, two transformative presidents who governed during times of upheaval. But what’s lost in those historical comparisons is […]

Dumbo miffed, by Carol E. Lee, Politico: Asked by CBS’s Chip Reid about complaints heard from other leaders during the summit, Obama shot back: “What about compliments?” He appeared thin-skinned about the characterizations of his time at the summit, saying that nobody wrote about leaders setting the stage for financial regulatory reform at the last […]

Let me provide you a data point. Over the weekend I made a run in my tractor trailer from the Rochester area to Windsor Locks, Connecticut. Roundtrip ended up being as close to no matter to 600 miles .  The tolls for this exercise were just a hair under $130.00. Now, certainly, the trucking company […]

In a Pajamas Media article I wrote just after Obama was deified: Indeed, it is Obama who apparently is doing the most in terms of recognizing (the far left’s bleeding anti-Bush vitriol notwithstanding) that Mr. Bush didn’t do that bad of a job after all. He’s adopting the vast majority of his anti-terrorism and economic […]

We’ve had a spot of bother with the plug-ins normally used here.  One of them updated, and crashed the entire system , probably on Friday.  While you were able to see everything that we’ve written to that point, some of us if not all of us were unable to access the control panel.  Therefore, we […]
