The Left Doesn’t Get Palin’s ‘No Apologies’ Tour in Israel


While the official faces of Left-Wing America are walking the tight-rope over to the dark side of the anti-Israel movement, Sarah Palin is making the Star of David a fashion statement for which she refuses to apologize. Last week, Glenn Beck outlined the litany of anti-Israel comments and actions taken by President Obama and his Administration over the [...]

Expanding on Libertarian Tunnel Vision… Now Islamic Gender Apartheid


Calvin Freiburger had a great post the other day about Rand Paul’s Civil Rights Act troubles.
Calvin nailed it:
More importantly, the affair crystallizes a key difference between conservatism and libertarianism.

The Ben Shapiro Show is Top Notch!


I’m not a talk radio conservative in any shape or form. It’s not that I don’t recognize the talent and important of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck. Rather, it’s just not my style.

In Defense of Sexual Freedom


Dirrrty girl Christina Aguilera has given up half-naked floor humping and even the fictional Carrie Bradshaw recently traded in her Sex and the City escapades for marital bliss. Apparently, there’s something terribly wrong with these developments.  There’s a “new backlash against casual sex,” says Jessica Grose in her latest piece for Slate, a “new wave [...]

Commentary: George Will Knocks it Out of the Park


by Peter Wehner The Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) gathering this weekend included some odd moments, some odd speakers, and some odd outcomes. But it also included some fine moments and impressive speeches — especially one fantastic address by columnist George Will.

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.
