Jonah Goldberg on UCSD’s Hypocritical Script


Jonah Goldberg has a valuable new LA Times column with more thoughts on David Horowitz’s recent encounter with pro-jihad sentiment at UC San Diego.  We all reacted with disgust (though not surprise) at Jumanah Imad Albahri’s words, but how did her school’s administration take it?  Goldberg decided to find out:
I asked UCSD, via e-mail, whether [...]

Summing Up Obama (So Far)

It’s still a legitimate question: Who is he?

Gutierrez’ Undocumented Answer—Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 43


If you are Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) this has to have been a great couple of weeks. The whole Arizona kerfuffle is a gift from Quetzalcoatl to any demagogue who appreciates the value of a highly emotional issue, especially when it comes to burying facts and logic in large amounts of noise.

It is both accurate and more palatable than the term “neo-communism” which I have applied to the hard left. But given the twenty-year political partnership [...]

Enough With This “Epistemic Closure” Crap


Should reporters who believe that most of America is stupid and insane be in the journalism business? Let’s consider the question.
Take left-wing journalist Marc Ambinder of the Atlantic. He’s not bad at his job. His insights are often worthwhile and occasionally wise. Yet Ambinder sometimes writes things so foolish that one might expect to read them at [...]

The Glenn Beck Program Welcomes … Naomi Wolf?


Third wave feminist Naomi Wolf knows how to speak the Tea Party language, peppering her conversations with talk of tyranny, freedom, the Constitution, and the Founders. And she knows how to appeal to the conspiracy-minded fringe.  But if she’s going to succeed in her quest to latch onto the Tea Party movement, she’ll need access [...]
