Last week, one of our hottest discussions on NewsReal involved the controversy over Bishop Thomas Tobin recommending that Congressman Patrick Kennedy not partake of communion as long as he is a proponent of abortion.
Former Johnson Administration official, Joseph Califano Jr. had a rather chilling op-ed in response to this principled action by the Bishop in [...]

Quick: Cough-Up $10 Billion Bucks


Neither rain nor sleet nor early record snowfall will keep world leaders from the 192-nation UN sponsored Copenhagen Climate Summit next week. And the first order of business: Establishing an emergency fund of, oh, $10 billion bucks or so to ‘jump-start’ the process of saving the world from the dreaded non-crisis of global warming.

Kay S. Hymowitz: What Cornel West and Larry Summers actually agree about, City Journal


Is there anyone in public life more reviled than economic eminence and White House chief economic advisor Larry Summers? Liberals, moderates, women, academics, and now, with his hand in the financial crisis, Middle America: he’s managed to offend them all.

Nancy Pelosi, The Nation’s Flower Girl


 
I think that the best segment by far on “The O’Reilly Factor” belongs to the political comedian Dennis Miller.  He deserves more than the 3 or 4 minutes a week of air time that O’Reilly gives him.
Last night, for example, Miller captured President Obama’s West Point speech perfectly.  Referring to Obama’s rhetorical flourishes covering his plan [...]
