Ron Paul Rides to the Rescue in Defense of 9/11 Mosque


For all their whining about how “neocons” allegedly look down upon politicians who believe in limited government, deep down most Ron Paul supporters know we blast the deranged congressman for his radically anti-American foreign policy views, specifically his history of lying on behalf of America’s enemies. He lies on behalf of the Iranian government. He [...]

Pamela Geller Gives Longtime Hannity Guest an Overdue Taste of What He Deserves


While Kirsten Powers’s commentary may have once been believed to have a redeeming quality or two, I doubt anyone held any such illusions about “civil rights” attorney and occasional Fox News guest Michael Gross. The man never attempts to hide his innate nastiness, so it was refreshing to see him confronted by someone not known [...]

Kirsten Powers Puts a Fork in Her Own Credibility


Once upon a time, Fox News political analyst Kirsten Powers had a reputation as a relatively sane, responsible Democrat. Partisan and misleading, yes, but that comes with the territory; at least Powers was less strident and angry than the average leftist—certainly no character assassin. This image has never been entirely true, but yesterday, Powers demonstrated [...]

Hot Post: Guess What? Ann Coulter Is Human!


Editor’s Note: This post was first published on August 22. Every once in a while, media outlets like to publish features on the “shocking” revelation that certain conservative personalities aren’t heartless monsters after all (perhaps out of a desire to appear less one-sided). Today’s example comes from the Daily Beast, where Matt Latimer introduces readers [...]

Guess What? Ann Coulter Is Human!


Every once in a while, media outlets like to publish features on the “shocking” revelation that certain conservative personalities aren’t heartless monsters after all (perhaps out of a desire to appear less one-sided). Today’s example comes from the Daily Beast, where Matt Latimer introduces readers to a kinder, gentler Ann Coulter than they’re used to: [...]

My Hero: Obama Asks WikiLeaks to Knock It Off


Scared about disingenuous foreign troublemakers publicizing government secrets that could get people killed with reckless abandon? Don’t be. The Obama White House is on the case: Press secretary Robert Gibbs says the leak of some 90,000 secret military documents already has jeopardized the lives of Afghans working with the U.S. and its war allies. Gibbs [...]

NRB Film Club: The Force Is With Us! “Star Wars” Finally Comes to Blu-ray


With Blu-ray shifting from high-end frill to mainstream media format, the absence of one particular franchise had been a disturbance in many film enthusiasts’ libraries. Fortunately, this week saw the announcement that that gap will finally be filled—all six Star Wars films are coming to Blu-ray in fall 2011. Aside from enhanced picture and sound, [...]

Please God, Don’t Make Me Side With Lindsey Graham


Especially not on immigration. Anything but that. But given Republican strategist Mark McKinnon’s outraged Daily Beast reaction to Graham’s newfound opposition to birthright citizenship, I guess I have no choice: Has history been forgotten? Republicans freed the slaves. Congressional Republicans passed the 13th Amendment despite nearly unanimous opposition by Democrats. And, Republicans granted citizenship to freed slaves and [...]

I Hate to Break It to You, Libertarians…


But Rand Paul says he isn’t one of you. Sort of. He told Sean Hannity yesterday that he doesn’t really consider himself a “libertarian,” but rather a “constitutional conservative.” But don’t worry; if his new USA Today op-ed is any indication, Paul probably doesn’t mean it: It’s often repeated in stories about me or my [...]

All Bark, No Bite: NewsHounds Tries to Smear Johnny Dollar – Using Me


Back in May, I took apart an empty, shameful attempt to smear Sean Hannity and one of his guests as racists by NewsHounds blogger Priscilla. Yesterday, Priscilla referenced that post in an attack on pro-Fox News blog Johnny Dollar’s Place: On another note, one of Mr. Dollar’s posters appends, after many of his comments about [...]
