Great story: From the Wall Street Journal on Pentagon reporter Raymond Cromley. It's well worth a read.
What you didn't know about the GOP: Republicans are cold, heartless, kitten-drowning bastards -- each and every one of them. New York Times columnist Paul Krugman uses the current Third World tour that U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill and U2 lead singer Bono are on to point out that if you're in the GOP, you […]
An honest liberal: The New York Times' Nicholas Kristof has an excellent article in today's paper. It's an excellent article, mainly because Kristof echoes a point I made earlier. One reason aggressive agents were restrained as they tried to go after Zacarias Moussaoui is that liberals like myself ï¿½ and the news media caldron in […]
Alert! Gloria Allred is an idiot. She was on "Alan Keyes is Making Sense" tonight and argued that it was an invasion of privacy for an FBI agent to listen to a speech at a public rally or to surf the Internet for terrorism-related sites. When they get the transcript up, I'll link to it.

This is about some of his defenders -- Krugmanites. Now, not all Krugmanites suffer from this disability, but last week's Krugman piece brought two […]
What's scarier than Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin wrapped up into one? Well, if you're a liberal, Attorney General John Ashcroft is much, much scarier. I'm ashamed I didn't catch it earlier, but last week San Diego Union-Tribune columnist James Goldsborough takes his turn at liberals' favorite whipping boy. In […]
Barone hits a home run: U.S. News & World Report columnist Michael Barone points out that the Saudis are not friends to America, but enemies. On a related note: The recent Saudi PR campaign failed miserably. The fact that the Saudis even felt the need to run those PR brings to mind a little Shakespeare: […]
