Newt for President? I Don’t Know – And Neither Do You


Another presidential race is around the corner, so tradition demands that we ask: Will Newt Gingrich run? As usual, the former Speaker of the House is non-committal.  The Daily Beast’s Lloyd Grove just sat down with Gingrich to see if he could discern anything more definite:
“We are looking at it very seriously,” the erstwhile Republican [...]

NRB Book Club: Andy McCarthy’s New Book, The Grand Jihad


Michelle Malkin has some thoughts here.

Sarah Palin Brings Out the Hypocrisy of Jessica Valenti & the Feminist Left


Sarah Palin is the feminist Left’s favorite target. It seems strange to anyone not entrenched in a radical, extremist feminist agenda. Feminists once fought for equality between the sexes — the right for women to vote, giving women a fair chance to go to college and get a job without fear of discrimination, [...]

Elena Kagan: A Cookie-Cutter Leftist Nominee


It’s official: Solicitor General Elena Kagan is President Barack Obama’s second nominee to the US Supreme Court.  Today on the Daily Beast, Peter Beinart revisits Kagan’s anti-military zealotry over “don’t ask, don’t tell”—unsurprisingly, it doesn’t bother him enough to oppose her confirmation (though he does offer an intriguing nugget about administration allies offering to help [...]

Amateur Hour in Left-Wing Activism


Leftist tea-party smears are getting desperate—so desperate, in fact, that they’re now deploying a crude variation of “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”  The other day, the world trembled in fear at the awesome might of Jason Levin’s “Crash the Tea Party,” a group of moonbats who publicly announced their intentions to infiltrate Tax [...]

Are the Tea Party crashers harmless goofball pranksters, Saul Alinsky-inspired schemers, or would-be storm troopers breaking up political meetings? Time will tell.
Michelle Malkin has identified the creator of the [...]

This just in from the “I Can’t Tell The Good Guys From the Bad Guys” department –  (photo of al-Maliki and Ahmadinejad above from Michelle Malkin’s website):
Gunmen wearing the uniforms of Iraqi army soldiers invaded a village south of Baghdad on Good Friday, rounded up at least thirty-one Sunni Muslims and killed twenty-four of them.  [...]

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!  [...]

David Frum vs. the Right’s Company Men


David Frum is being criticized and mocked by some prominent conservative thinkers and journalists for engaging in substantive argument and debate. It’s hard to imagine that William F. Buckley, Jr. ever would have countenanced the criticism and derision to which Frum is now being subjected.
