Bud-Day

Farewell to an American warrior and patriot — for whom uncommon valor was a common virtue.

The Times Finds A Lone Crazed Assassin


The New York Times’ front page profile today of professor Amy Bishop, who allegedly executed three University of Alabama Biology Department colleagues after being denied tenure, appears to be an exhaustively reported piece based on “numerous interviews with colleagues and others who knew her.” It portrays Bishop as violent and [...]

The New Attack on Palin? Associate Her with John Edwards


Today marks a new turn in the obsessive attacks on Sarah Palin: associating her with John Edwards.
In the New York Times Timothy Egan sees them as a pair of ethically similar “grifters” using populism to con the American voter–“playing to outrage while taking care of themselves.” In Egan’s view, both [...]

Three Blind Mice: Zinn, Chomsky, Bin Laden


Every so often we experience what Jung called synchronicity—the sudden perception of a possibly meaningful pattern in apparently unrelated events. I had one of these moments myself last week.
The first element was the passing of Howard Zinn.  I believe as much as the next guy that every man’s death diminishes [...]

Harry Reid Gets Dealt the Race Card


Harry Reid is the shame of the Senate.  And it hard not to bathe in schadenfreude at the hammering he is now getting over an interview he gave to John Heilemann and Mark Haperin during 2008 for their new book Game Change in which he enthused that Barack Obama was electable because he was “light [...]

Sullivan Suck Up Watch: Obama the Un-Bush?


Yesterday, Andrew Sullivan served once more as low level public relations officer for the administration when he pretends to buy the White House spin that Obama has heroically spoken out about the underwear bomber in a way that shows how much he means business and marks him once again as the “un Bush.”
After seeing Janet [...]

Where Andrew Sullivan’s Head Is


A brief addition to yesterday’s post on Andrew Sullivan’s current avocation as Barack Obama’s  pooper-scooper.  I noted that Sullivan had fecklessly praised the President’s admirable “reticence” in avoiding the serious condemnation of Iran’s mullahs for their murder of protestors in the streets.  By Sullivan’s twisted logic, Obama’s shameful silence had a golden lining: preventing Ahmadinejad’s [...]

Andrew Sullivan Unhinged


Andrew Sullivan seems increasingly unhinged these days. The creepy, Torquemada-like obsession with Sarah Palin continues as he rummages through her book in a deranged act of explication de texte, functions as a one man birther movement laying out loony speculations about the owners of the canals out of which Trig and Tripp emerged, and continues [...]

America’s Health Care Precipice


Barack Obama told the press today that the U.S. stood “on the precipice” of a health care bill.  Either the White House telepromter was on the blink today, or Obama, giddy from in his own in-house version of grade inflation, was so anxious to get that B+ he told Oprah he [...]
