Chris Matthews can’t let simple laws of physics get in the way of a good rant this week. After calling for the execution of BP execs for not putting men on the ocean floor, he tried to make the oil spill a religious issue with the Rev. Jim Wallis, the liberal evangelical flavor of the [...]
On his TV show Glenn Beck railed against the thug tactics employed by the Service Employees International Union and other left-wing activists against Greg Baer, a Bank of America executive. (no video; transcript)
This is what happened: hundreds of angry, loud, purple-shirted SEIU members and National People’s Action activists showed up at Baer’s house in Maryland. They caused a ruckus, [...]
Just to prove to David Swindle that I take his injunctions against time-wasting debates seriously, I am going to open with a skill-testing question.
I walk into Tiffany’s—flush with blogging income–and purchase their very reasonable 18k Gold Paloma’s Marrakesh Bangle (inspired by the intriguing patterns of Morocco) for $4,950. Later I discover to my horror that [...]

I first “met” Ladd Ehlinger Jr. last year, when his movie Hive Mind came out on DVD. No shrinking violet, Ehlinger contacted me. After all, I wrote a lot about talk radio, right? Would I be interested in getting a copy of his latest flick about what would happen if a radio talker like Glenn [...]
I don’t yet know if New Jersey’s new governor Chris Christie is “The One” Glenn Beck and a few million of his closest friends are looking for–i.e. a latter day George Washington – but I’m definitely liking what I’ve seen so far. The clip below is from a recent press conference in which Christie utterly [...]
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.
Even when I was a leftist I couldn’t get into Air America when it debuted. There’s something about the medium that [...]
