Unreal: Leftist Professors Trash World War II, With the Help of Big Government


Can you spot the bad guys in this picture? It’s not who you think anymore… Anti-American, anti-military propaganda aimed at the United States’ actions in the Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars, not to mention scores of lesser conflicts and issues involving our armed forces, is nothing new. But all but the craziest of the anti-war [...]

Anti-Semitism Arrows Fired at Glenn Beck Miss the Mark


You haven’t really made it as a conservative until leftists start calling you either a raging bigot or functionally illiterate. Ideally both. It has nothing to do with whether or not you’ve actually done anything bigoted, and everything to do with whether or not they feel you pose a threat to their agenda. But once [...]

Why Shameless Ron Paul Disciple Wesley Messamore Isn’t Worth Any More of My Time


Last month, I wrote a post summarizing the case against Ron Paul. A Paul disciple named Wesley Messamore attempted to refute it at the Young Americans for Liberty blog. I responded here, demonstrating that Wesley’s screed consisted almost entirely of dishonesty, misdirection, and simply ignoring information that was too inconvenient. Curious about how our apologist [...]

Blazing Exciting New Trails for Partisanship: Media Matters Blasts Hannity for NOT Being a Hypocrite


Media Matters: this aggressive, but far less effective Whenever a leftist gets in hot water, you can count on Media Matters to find a way to steer the conversation toward alleged conservative misconduct. Yesterday, they dug past the headlines about Keith Olbermann getting (briefly) suspended for donating to Democrat candidates, and posed the question on [...]

“Tax-Cutter Obama” Revisited: Daily Beast Blogger Sets a New Standard in Leftist Duplicity


The most amazing thing liberals have done is create the myth of a compliant right-wing media with Republicans badgering baffled reporters into attacking Democrats. It’s so mad, it’s brilliant. It’s one kind of lie to say the Holocaust occurred when the Swedes killed the Jews. But it’s another kind of lie entirely to say the [...]

John Avlon Moves the Goalposts to Belittle Tea Party Victories


With the Republican Party winning big in Congress, governorships and state legislatures this week, you just knew the left-wing media would have to find some way to spin the results. In what character assassin David Frum (of course) hails as an “important column,” the Daily Beast’s John Avlon claims to “prove the wingnuts”—that is, the [...]

“Crisis” of the Day: Right-Wing Pundits Are Way Too Successful


Sure, unemployment is expected to rise again and Catholics are getting murdered in Iraq, but forget about all that for now. You see, we’ve got a real problem to deal with: rotten conservatives are making too much money. Newsweek’s latest Power 50 list, which identifies the most financially-successful (and therefore influential) political figures of the [...]

Is Dubya’s Reputation on the Rebound?


As voters headed to the polls yesterday to decide how many allies the current president will have in Congress come January, some have started to contemplate the reputation of his predecessor. Former President George W. Bush’s memoir Decision Points will be released next week, leading the Daily Beast’s Bryan Curtis to take a look at [...]

Maybe the Public Would Like Democrats More if Michelle Obama Went Back to Telling Us How Much America Sucks


Above: Electoral Gold, Guaranteed The big day’s almost here. Tomorrow the American people will go to the polls and let Washington, DC, know just what they’ve thought of the Hope & Change agenda. Many predict the Democrats will lose big, causing leftists to conjure up excuses for the defeat that mean something, anything other than [...]

Disgrace: Hollywood Helps George W. Bush’s Most Famous Fake Victims Rewrite History


A secret agent and her hubby, keeping a low profile. It looks like the new history-rewriting movie Fair Game, starring Sean Penn and Naomi Watts, isn’t enough to satisfy Joseph Wilson and Valerie Plame’s quest to stay relevant. In a fawning, uncritical retrospective on their “victimization” at the hands of the Bush Administration for the [...]
