Where’s the civility, I ask you? Was it not just this weekend that former President Bill Clinton warned that words have power, and that in voicing dissent, we should be careful not to get out of hand? And yet, here we have a group of protesters registering their discontent with the government within close physical […]

What ever happened to Separation of Church and State? The White House on Friday announced a “summit on entrepreneurship” to build economic ties with the Islamic world, part of President Barack Obama’s outreach to Muslims. The White House said it has invited participants from more than 40 countries over five continents for the April 26-27 […]

I’ll probably get in trouble with Eric for even mentioning the name of the twit  Meghan McCain, but I am bored and feel like swatting a gnat.   Miss McCain notes in the Daily Beast: So Michelle Malkin successfully rounds out the trifecta of extreme female conservative pundits, following Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter, who believe […]

The one has decreed a new holiday”Cuatro de Cinco.”   Mary Katherine Ham, Weekly Standard, quips: So, Obama, I will not turn your tendency to mispeak (and, then reprimand your Teleprompter) into an international incident, but I will note it with some glee:  Mary Katherine, it is going to a gleeful four years.    Now is really […]

Barack Obama had over two months to plan and then execute his inauguration.  BO’s team utterly failed. Peter Scoblic, Plank:. I cannot even imagine the logistical skill and dedication required to pull off an event of today’s magnitude. And, given the million-plus emotional people I just watched on the Mall via my DVR, much of […]

A 20-year association with a radically leftist, anti-American, racist preacher whom Obama referred to as a spiritual adviser meant absolutely nothing about Obama’s judgment or philosophy, and illustrated only the bigotry of those who dared criticize it. A 20-minute association with one of the country’s most well-liked, mainstream evangelical preachers who happens to support traditional […]

No need to wait for Obama to frame the issue when the Associated Press knows his favorite words already. They are great students of his oratory, after Mary Katharine Ham, Weekly Standard

Steyn at The Corner, regarding Blago selling the Senate Seat of Barack Obama: If my Chevy dealer were selling this Senate seat, he would point out that it’s hardly been used, Barack Obama having barely sat in it. (Muffled laughter) Snark of the day.

The Lions lost again today. Ummm… 47 to 10. That’s a high school Basketball score… which is fitting because it appears to me that the local high school basketball team could beat the Lions at football. The Thanksgiving tradition in the NFL has been to put Detroit on the tube. Why? It’s not like they’ve […]

This is not the Mary Katherine Ham I remember from Townhall.. Ham on BO: Maybe women voters—considered a battleground demographic— would be interested in what the Hope ‘n’ Change ticket might wish to do with their children’s education, and should have information about his past efforts in this vein. Ham, from Weekly Standard. Aside to […]

Imagine if Sarah Palin backed up one of her political opinions with the assertion that it comported with the doctrine of her church. I will wait and wait for Andrew Sullivan to denounce Biden as a Christianist. That’s Ann Althouse, and that’s the BitsBlog Snark of the day.

Like many, I’ve perceived the mainstream media as being in the tank for liberals and Democrats over the years. This year, however, it’s difficult to see them making it through November without collectively purchasing a larger tank. Between the ugliness of their attacks on Governor Palin and the over-flowing juices from their passion for Obama, […]

Bruce McQuain at Q&O: Oliver Willis asks on Twitter: “How many qualified and tested Republican women did McCain pass over for Sarah Palin? “ About as many as the Democrats passed over to pick Barack Obama, Oliver.  Why? LOL… sometimes these things write themselves, don’t they Bruce? It’s true, though; Palin has more executive experience […]

Joyner notes Kevin Drum: It’s a pretty good bet that any law named after a child is a lousy one. He’s referencing “Sarah’s Law” here but he’s right: laws passed in the emotional wake of one very specific crime are bound to be problematic. That’s doubly true if it’s done “for the children.” I tell […]

The Reverend Jeremiah Wright now says he was quoting the Iraqi ambassador when he made his famous “chickens are coming home to roost” comments after the September 11 attacks. Apparently he meant the U.S. ambassador to Iraq because during that sermon, Wright mentioned Edward Peck, who once held that position. Just days after 9/11 Wright […]
