AFL-CIO Prez Trumka on the Employee Free Choice Act aka “May I Fill the Card Out for You?”


Hey, don’t trouble yourself. Let me just sign that union card for you.
Richard Trumka, current president of the AFL-CIO, cares about you, the American Worker. He cares so much that he is going to stop those dirty employers from forcing you to have a secret ballot. Until I heard him speak, I never realized a [...]

Red Eye Is So Awesome That They Found a Way to Make David Shuster Tolerable, Even Amusing


Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld is, in my refined and sophisticated opinion, one of the best and most underrated programs on television.  The in-jokes, ironically formulaic production, and all-over surreal quality are simply perfect at 3 a.m., plus the Gregalogue is consistently profound yet snarky.  They’ve even had some really good guests lately, like John [...]

Lord of the Rings Commentary by Howard Zinn & Noam Chomsky


If we were living in Middle Earth what would Zinn and Chomsky’s political commentary sound like?
McSweeney’s presents the unused DVD commentary recorded by Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky for The Fellowship of the Ring (platinum series extended edition, natch):
Chomsky: A terrible thing the Orcs do here, isn’t it? They destroy nature. But again, what have [...]

State of the Union: Lame Duck Rising


Even Obama, Biden and Pelosi seemed bored during the State of the Union Address. Obama couldn’t even gin up enough energy to discuss “Gitmo”. But it does not matter what he said. It’s all over for his presidency.

The Democrat Party now understands just how bad they blew it in 2009. This is good for the [...]

mcCHRYSTAL’s METHod of war:


The enemy will never submit to anything other than Islam or to our deadly force. It’s not surprising that General McChrystal was hand picked by Obama, a man who isn’t comfortable with the word “victory.”  We haven’t even begun to fight against Jihad and this “soldier” doesn’t have any more fight left in him. What a disgrace.

Daniel Pipes: Why I Stand with Geert Wilders – National Review Online


Who is the most important European alive today? I nominate the Dutch politician Geert Wilders. I do so because he is best placed to deal with the Islamic challenge facing the continent. He has the potential to emerge as a world-historical figure. That Islamic challenge consists of two components: on the one hand, an indigenous […]

Jeff Jacoby: Reclaiming the People’s Seat – The Boston Globe


IT REALLY is the people’s seat, and yesterday the people took it back. But in electing Scott Brown instead of Martha Coakley to replace the late Ted Kennedy in the US Senate, Massachusetts voters did more than hand the GOP its most improbable and thrilling come-from-behind victory in a generation. They did more than embrace […]

Leg Thrills and Spine Chills With Chris Matthews Part 5: Empty Words Create Little Monsters and Grownup Nightmares


My son-in-law, Travis, had what I like to call a “reality attack” while attempting to discipline his two-year-old daughter Pearl. Pearl, like most little girls, holds her Daddy’s heart in the palm of her hand. Like most toddlers, she is a formidable force of boundless energy and relentless willpower.
As the young scamp ran past her [...]
