Andrew Sullivan Hearts Islamic Martyrs


When it comes to Israel and its genocidal enemies, Andrew Sullivan is a master of moral equivalency. The man has it down to an art form, sort of like the way that children enjoy playing with their food. “Look, mommy, my Alpha-Bits say ‘I hate Israel’!” “Yes, we know, Andrew. We forgive you now for [...]

“Iron Man” and the Cultural Contradiction of Liberalism


My former colleague Elizabeth Ames has a sharp and provocative piece up at FoxNews on the Left’s contradictory view of capitalism. She cites the example of the recent “Iron Man” movie sequel, whose hero, Tony Stark, is the kind of high-living capitalist that the big-government Left typically reviles. As Elizabeth puts it, “Tony Stark exemplifies [...]

Obama Takes A Spill


President Obama would have us believe that his administration has been in charge from Day 1, addressing the catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.  He said at his first solo White House press conference in nearly a year that:
I take responsibility. It is my job to make sure that everything is done to shut [...]

The Balanced, the Unbalanced, Social Media and Talk Radio


A brand new study from the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism offers  media buffs plenty to chew on.

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, [...]

Palin Stuns Media: All Border States Should Have Arizona Immigration Law


Former Governor of Alaska and the most prominent conservative woman in America, Sarah Palin, once again succeeded in taking her left-wing enemies in the media by surprise. How, you ask? Well, not only did she have the courage to defend Arizona’s tough new immigration law on an appearance earlier today on Fox News, but she [...]

Sarah Palin, Susan B. Anthony & the Problem with Partisan Feminism


Susan B. Anthony and Sarah Palin
Ann Gordon, editor of The Selected Papers of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, and Lynn Sherr, the noted biographer of Susan B. Anthony, have co-penned an article lambasting Sarah Palin for her speech before the Susan B. Anthony List, a prominent pro-life group. The gist of their article [...]

Obama Administration Promoting ACORN in India


President Obama has been helping his former employer ACORN — in India, of all places.
As I wrote at The Daily Caller, President Obama’s ambassador to India, Timothy J. Roemer, has lent his name and the prestige of the American government to ACORN India’s efforts to agitate among rag-pickers in Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay). Roemer used [...]

Palin Nails It: the American Apologists Have Never Met a Bill They Have Read


Sarah Palin sometimes has impeccable timing.  Today she posted on Facebook that:
the American Apology Tour continues.
That is both true and unfortunate of course and you can read her post in it’s entirety here.
But the interestingly ironic aspect is that Ms. Palin’s frustration with the O Team ignorance is nicely juxtaposed with another progressive posted jaw [...]

Fact-Checking Made Easy, Just Don’t: Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 48


Is it just me or does Olbermann increasingly resemble the dweeb at the back of health class making phlegmy snickering noises during the sex ed movie? This seems particularly pronounced when he attempts (and the operative word here is “attempts”) to stick needles of knee-slapping satire into his favorite voodoo dolls. Monday night it was [...]
