Glenn Beck had a terrific show today, a basic lesson in the reality we inhabit. If you didn’t see it, watch it tonight. The first segment took off on Patrick Kennedy’s pious blather about how we should all be civil. Beck showed the contrasting images of leftwing fascists behaving violently in Pittsburgh and peaceful tea [...]
That was snarky, I know. But given how hard it is to keep up with the latest “progressive” “goodthink” without my Left Wing Decoder Ring (I had to pawn it when my Z.O.G. check bounced…), I trust you’ll forgive me.
Media Matters‘ Jamison Foser manages to out-snark me anyway. With unconcealed contempt, Foser blasts two Washington [...]
Naomi Wolf, Lucy Semiyan Mashua
I have a little follow-up to my run-in with Naomi Wolf over the sexiness of the burqa.
As our readers will be familiar, Wolf went on a political pilgrimage to Morocco, Jordan, and Egypt and found a thriving sexuality behind the veil.

Speaking to Morning Joe’s Willie Geist, Hazlett described Moore as some kind of modern-day Robin Hood. Moore’s main problem with capitalism, she explained, is that it enables “the top 1% of the wealth pyramid” to own “95% of [...]
NewsReal Sunday: Pots and Kettles: Maddow and Schaeffer Call Evangelicals “Village Idiots” Who Must be Excluded from American Political Life
If your Evangelical Church had a business meeting today, Frank Schaeffer, son of Christian philosopher Francis Schaeffer and owner of the world’s biggest daddy complex has an expression for what went on there—The lunatics running the asylum.
Using the pretext of a dubious poll question about whether Barack Obama is the anti-Christ, Rachel Maddow used guest [...]

Last week, the George Soros-funded, self-styled media watchdog group Media Matters for America sent out an urgent fund raising email, which read in part:
