Helen Thomas: Jews Go Home– To Germany!


After decades of deranged and hateful commentary, Helen Thomas may have finally crossed a line that will cost her her job… (what IS her “job” anyway?)
RABBI DAVID NESENOFF, RabbiLive.com “…any comments on Isreal?”
THOMAS: Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine…
NESENOFF: So where should they go, what should they do?
THOMAS: Go home
NESENOFF: Where is [...]

Nothing to See Here, Folks: Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 50


Keith Olbermann, who ran approximately 943,347 stories on how Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, Dick Cheney and probably even George W. Bush should go to prison because—as it turned out—Richard Armitage “leaked’ the name of a CIA bureaucrat whose husband had already listed her in Who’s Who, Friday night had this response to the revelation that [...]

Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War
Already being recognized as perhaps the classic novel of the Vietnam War.  I would argue that it is also a Great American Novel, somewhere between Philip Caputo and Thomas Wolfe for literary merit, though it’s unpretentiousness and clean reading style may keep some of the literati from recognizing its [...]

War May not be Like the Movies, but Quit Blaming John Wayne


It’s become the new cliche. Every Memorial Day, a teacher/historian/columnist or such has to think of something to say, and inevitably we hear a phrase something like, “War is not like a John Wayne movie.” OK, but who the heck ever said war was like a John Wayne movie? Life is not like many movies. Even [...]

While Finding Nemo, Chris Matthews Loses His Mind


Liberals like to accuse Ronald Reagan of confusing facts with the movies.  But Baby Boomer liberals constantly define situations by movies.  Chris Matthews was recently warning about “Seven Days in May” coming true, spinning some wild conspiracy theory about the military and the Tea Party.
But as he got excited about the BP oil spill, Chris [...]

NewsReal Sunday: Apocalypse Now, Matthews’ Meltdown Part 2


Chris Matthews can’t let simple laws of physics get in the way of a good rant this week.  After calling for the execution of BP execs for not putting men on the ocean floor, he tried to make the oil spill a religious issue with the Rev. Jim Wallis, the liberal evangelical flavor of the [...]

Matthews’ Meltdown: Execute BP Execs Like the Chinese Would?


Apparently former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn isn’t the only Obama admirer with an affinity for Maoist methodology.
On Hardball Monday night, Chris Matthews began a week long rant about the BP oil spill that had him calling for the imprisonment of the whole BP board, possibly their execution, and for the President to nationalize [...]
