E.J. Dionne: Some Lies Are More Equal Than Others


George Orwell’s Animal Farm taught us that while all animals are equal, some animals are more equal than others. Now, we have E.J. Dionne (whose…unique…brand of logic and argumentation Tim has noticed and argued with since his days at the Ball State Daily News op-ed page) to tell us that all broken campaign promises are [...]

Washington Post Columnist Renders a Curious Paen to the Past


Well, the holidays are over, we’re back from vacation, and we know you all missed us. So you know what that means. That’s right, the Birkels are back. We’re rested, ready, and raring to go. So, without further ado, on to what you came here for.
With more and more Democrats sticking fingers in the air [...]

Fun with Semantics at ThinkProgress


Semantics–the study of meanings and interpretation of meanings-can be fun. Take, for example, the liberal blog ThinkProgress. On its website, the blog proudly touts that it is “a project of the Center for American Progress Action Fund. The Center for American Progress Action Fund is a nonpartisan organization.” Yet, in the very next paragraph, they [...]

It has always been a source of amusement to us that many leftists love to quote Orwell and use “Orwellian” as one of their favorite anti-conservative insults. Yet day by day they perform activities that seem ripped straight from the pages of Orwell’s works. [...]

Alan Leshner’s Playground Comeback to Climategate


By now, hopefully you are all up to speed on Climategate–the faking of research data to support the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis and its accompanying hysteria. Of course the scientific establishment, with its clear interest in perpetuating that hysteria and the lucrative funding it provides, had to strike back at some point. The talking point [...]

A Spoonful of Saccharine: If You Can’t Change Reality, Mock It


Rachel Maddow took a moment from her busy, busy schedule Wednesday night to mock Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). She did so, because he said something that hits perhaps just a little too close to home for leftists like Maddow who believe in the transformative power of government to fix all our ills.
McConnell had [...]

A Spoonful of Saccharine: Geopolitical Realities No Barrier to Maddow Blaming Bush for All Problems


By now, you’ve all seen President Obama’s speech, wherein he agreed to send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan (though most definitely not a surge of the kind used in Iraq and suggested by many for quite some time now, we are assured). Now, Rachel Maddow often tries to walk a peculiar line in which she [...]

A Spoonful of Saccharine: Maddow’s Continued Blindness to Irony, Hamsher’s Continued Inability to Let the Past Go


Last night’s special live post-election Rachel Maddow show was about as one would expect: Maddow and her guests touched briefly on the election results, and then jumped right into the pre-arranged leftist talking points. You know the ones: this election in no way reflects on Barack Obama. This election is not a precursor to 2010. [...]

A Spoonful of Saccharine: Maddow’s Alternate Reality Redefines “Fringe” Ever Larger


Watching the Rachel Maddow Show, it’s quite easy to wonder if the receivers in her brain are tuned to quite a different reality from the one the rest of us inhabit.
Take, for example, her continued commentary on the NY-23 House race. That would be the race in which the Republican candidate, Dede Scozzafava, was so [...]

A Spoonful of Saccharine: Maddow Again Cheers America Getting Weaker


Last night, Rachel Maddow spent a good deal of her show crowing over the death of a “military boondoggle” – though really, when has a leftist like her ever labeled military spending as anything but a wasteful “boondoggle.” The program she refers to is the F-22 Raptor, what was supposed to be the backbone of [...]
