NRB Book Club: Christopher Hitchens on Horowitz and Humor


It sounds like a cliché. “If Hitchens didn’t exist,” wrote Ian McEwan, “we wouldn’t be able to invent him.”
I’m looking at Christopher Hitchens’ latest book. On the front-cover he’s smoking and (my guess) sending secret smoke signals to neo-conservatives. And yet, in the world of politics, no-one appears more complicated than Christopher Hitchens because of [...]

Israeli Nuclear-Armed Subs Off Iranian Coast


Israel’s three nuclear weapons-armed German submarines are going to be sent to the Gulf as an act of deterrence to Iran. In fact, they aren’t even hiding that objective. The Times Online report about this is obviously the result of a calculated leak. The hint is here:

Could Bristol Palin’s New PSA Unintentionally Encourage Abortion?


On the campaign trail, Barack Obama famously told a Pennsylvania audience that if his daughters had sex as teenagers, he wouldn’t want them “punished with a baby.”
The message was clear: babies ruin your life.
Later that year, Rebecca Walker described how her mother, author Alice Walker, has a similarly skewed perception of motherhood:

Obama’s Richest Nation Wouldn’t Get a Loan at My Bank

From Lori Ziganto’s latest article at Right Wing News
Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar are an utter embarrassment to my gender. I find them offensive, as a woman. Idiocy, in action:

From NewsBusters:
On HLN’s Joy Behar Show on Thursday, Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg gave a racial explanation for Chris Matthews’ recent “I forgot he was black” remark [...]

FLDS Mental Burqa: National Geographic & Every Woman’s Right to Be Slave


If Elissa could change anything, she wouldn’t have made that special meal for her ten brothers and sisters, and her three mothers.
