Meet the New UN Boss, Same as the Old UN Boss


The title of today’s post refers, of course, to the lyric from The Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” Those of you who watched last week’s Super Bowl halftime show probably heard the preserved corpses of Roger Daltry and Pete Townshend perform it. Every person in the crowd seemed to know that line. And yet, the [...]

Don’t Run, Sarah! Newsweek Assesses Palin’s Electoral Prospects (Again)


Two parts predictable, one part probable: Newsweek’s Daniel Stone takes a look at Sarah Palin’s Tea Party Nation convention speech and determines her unable to win a national election.  Shock!

New York Times thinks 2.6% is a lot


In a recent piece that should have engendered far more mockery than it did, the New York Times proclaimed that “talk radio, a largely conservative format, turns out to have fewer fans than previously thought.” You see, broadcasters are switching over to a new ratings measurement system, one that’s high tech and automated as [...]

The Left’s Puppets Turn on Lieberman


Joe Lieberman is the latest target of the left’s “isolate, humiliate and eliminate” strategy. The Independent Senator from Connecticut is held by progressives as solely responsible for the defeat of the public option and Medicare expansion. Now they are trying to get him out of office, and have pulled out their secret weapon (wait for [...]
