Ryan Sorba: To Shun or Not to Shun?


It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of Ryan Sorba, the young conservative who shows off his tough-guy masculinity by trying to make a career out of fighting against homosexuals and gay marriage. If you don’t remember, Sorba is the speaker with a massively inflated sense of self-importance that used his debut at CPAC [...]

Bill Maher Stands Up for America


bill

Liberal host and comedian utters the unthinkable for his progressive pals.

Bill Maher Sees a Difference Between Christian and Muslim Radicals…


Warning: HBO-level language. Hat tip to Andrew Sullivan.
… but he can’t take the point to its logical conclusion.
In the above clip from HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the leftist host and comedian says what so many of his progressive pals cannot:
1. Our American culture is better than the Middle East’s.
2. American Christians who follow [...]

WARNING: Palin Derangement Syndrome Outbreak at the Daily Beast


(Image by David Lunde, hat tip to Michelle Malkin)
Kudos to Daily Beast editor-in-chief Tina Brown for penning an anti-Sarah Palin tirade so vitriolic, I thought there had been a mix-up with her byline and Andrew Sullivan’s.  Well, technically she’s blasting John McCain for allowing Palin to campaign for him, because…uh…it’s Sarah Palin, Personification of Evil!  [...]

The Ever-Expanding Scope of Palin Derangement Syndrome


Meghan Stapleton, advisor and spokeswoman to Governor Sarah Palin, resigned yesterday to spend more time with her family, and we all know what that means: another media feeding frenzy.  A recent Daily Beast interview with Stapleton suggests her departure is an essentially unremarkable development over the normal course of a political career, but that won’t [...]

Andrew Sullivan’s (Sick) Last Paragraph


A couple of years ago, I was a regular (read “daily”) reader of Andrew Sullivan’s The Daily Dish. Andrew, I believed, did a wonderful job blogging about conservatism, the war on terror and, of course, domestic politics.
Gradually, however, my surfing behavior changed. The reason was that while Andrew once was a tremendous representative of British [...]

Daily Dish’s Soup du Jour: The Arab Narrative and Death to America


America will stand or fall with Israel. This assertion is illustrated and justified by the latest skirmish instigated by the too-familiar Andrew Sullivan. The Daily-Dish’s self-proclaimed conscience of a nation of torturers, has demanded that Ronald Radosh, NYC University’s co-author of The Rosenberg File, remove and apologize for his post at Pajamas Media. Radosh, a [...]

Goebbels Rising: “The Daily Dish” Serves Socially Acceptable Anti-Semitism


Romano Amerio began his work, Iota Unum, with this exquisite statement:
“A precise use of words makes for a sound argument.”
Lack of a precise definition of “anti-Semite” is contributing to the blog war now raging over Andrew Sullivan, editor of The Daily Dish, and his understanding of “Jewish influence on American foreign policy.” Picked up by [...]

Jeffrey Goldberg: Leon Wieseltier, Andrew Sullivan and Anti-Semitism – The Atlantic


Here are a couple of observations about Leon and Andrew, based on a more careful reading of Leon’s piece, and a look back at some of Andrew's greatest hits. 1 I don’t mean this as a cop-out, but Chait says much of what I would say, but better. 2 Like Chait, I don’t believe that […]

The obsessive attacks on Palin take yet another morbid turn.
