Media Scrambles to Obscure Mass Murderer Omar Thornton’s Racism


It is an oft-repeated cliché that tragedies bring out the best and worst in people. Among the Liberal media, of whom the worst can generally be expected, each tragedy represents a new challenge to impose —however tortuously—a politically correct interpretation that is at least superficially credible. One can readily appreciate therefore that Omar Thornton—a disgruntled [...]

Hot Post: Shirley Sherrod – Media Pulls the Emergency Brake


The “context” around Shirley Sherrod continues to unfold—much to the dismay of the media (like the profoundly cognitively challenged David Gergen below) who only a few weeks ago were issuing hagiographies on her behalf. Despite the best efforts of all the king’s men it is becoming increasingly evident that the more one gets  to know [...]

Timothy Geithner – Prosperity Is Just Around the Corner


I don’t know when they are planning the next revival of “Annie” but I think Timothy Geithner would be fabulous in the lead role.  Not only does he have that perpetual look of earnest, optimistic, cluelessness so essential to the part, but by the time the financing is in place, he will probably be available.
Consider [...]

The Daily Caller Reveals Spencer Ackerman as the Thinking Man’s Thug


What is necessary is to raise the cost on the right of going after the left. In other words, find a rightwinger’s [sic] and smash it through a plate-glass window. Take a snapshot of the bleeding mess and send it out in a Christmas card to let the right know that it needs to live [...]

Mr. Connor’s thesis [...]

Why I’ll Be at Glenn Beck’s 8/28 Restoring Honor Rally


A recent rant by a New Black Panthers minion , and the not-so-subtle threats embedded in a follow up interview by its chairman (extensively covered by Glenn Beck and ably put into historical context by NRB’s David Swindle) should forever settle the question as to whether African-Americans enjoy equal opportunity to engage in the same [...]

Robert Reich – a Recession is a Terrible Thing to Waste


It’s an oft repeated truism that those who won’t learn from the mistakes of history are doomed to repeat them. While this is undeniably true for most of us at one time or another, there remains a special class of people—largely resident within the beltway—who have elevated it to an art form.

Come Let Us Reason Together As We Smack Down Glenn Beck


I don’t know about you but nothing says Fourth of July weekend to me more than watching a couple of guys, ostensibly on different sides of an issue, throw Nerf balls at each other in hopes of making it look like a fight. Thus the recent clash of the titans between Conor Friedersdorf and Matt [...]

Teaching Your Neighbours To Be Seen and Not Herd


For no apparent reason, other than everything he has inflicted on the country, Barack Obama’s poll numbers continue their brisk slide toward “draft Joe Biden” territory. In the absence of any real mystery as to why the president is plummeting down this particular laundry chute, one is left only to ponder what on earth is [...]
