The New York Times report today on yesterday's 72-25 cloture vote on the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court contains the term: "filibuster." We have the Times filibuster definition courtesy of editorial page editor Gail Collins. When a cloture motion was made to move the nomination to a vote, Senator Frist voted […]

No talent, expertise required

John Hinderaker over at Powerline took a swing at Sunday's jumbo-sized New York Times editorial and smashed it to smithereens. A casual observer would be forgiven for wondering what the fuss is about. If the Times is happy with what the administration is doing, but just wants it to follow a procedure that will yield […]

Angry partisanship

David Broder had an interesting article in Sunday's Washington Post that recounted Tip O'Neill's visit to Ronald Reagan's hospital room after he was shot by John Hinckley. When I reached [Max] Friedersdorf [, Reagan White House congressional liaison,] last week at his retirement home in Florida, I asked him how it happened that Reagan's first […]

Welcome to my new home

Congratulations on making it over here from blogspot. All the posts are here. Comments, unfortunately are not. I understand that WordPress could've brought many of them over, but I didn't start out the process correctly ... well it's a long story. I've also fixed the titles of most of January's posts, the importer brought them […]

Well, the reporter had to have it explained to him

So, it should come as little surprise that he felt the need to explain it to you. The latest Census Bureau report shows median prices for new residences sold in December fell 1.5 percent from the previous month to $221,800. Half of the homes sold for more than the median, the rest for less. Well, […]

Uninformed or a liar?

I watched "Fox News Watch" last night. The program is the Fox News Channel's media watchdog program and is unfortunately only 30 minutes long. If it were longer, I'd probably have even more ammunition proving media critic Neal Gabler, an Eric Alterman acolyte, to be at the very least hopelessly misinformed and at worse a […]

Money for terrorists

There should be no doubt that the Palestinian Authority is a corrupt terrorist organization. It was when Yasser Arafat (condition stable after dying in a Paris hospital) was running things. It was when his Fatah party continued holding power after his death. And it will continue to be now that Hamas -- an organization that […]

Crazy old lady in the attic

Helen Thomas, a left-wing opinion columnist, didn't get called on again in yesterday's press conference. Turns out Bush made a good call, because the moonbat was going to ask a dumb question.

The gift that just keeps on giving

Massachusetts' junior senator, John Kerry, has come out urging a filibuster of Judge Samuel Alito. It's going to be interesting to see how the New York Times editorial page characterizes Kerry's move, since by their definition a filibuster is occuring right now. And if the Times changes their definition to fit the political calculus of […]

"Debating" Alito

The Senate isn't really debating the qualifications of Sam Alito to sit on the Supreme Court so much as they are speechifying. I watched a couple hours of the Senate yesterday and have C-SPAN2 on now and I think everything that can be said about Alito has been said -- it's just that everyone hasn't […]

I had a ruptured ectopic pregnancy in the state of Tennessee one month ago. At no time was I refused care and at no time was anyone restricted from saving my life, even though my baby did die. This is misinformation that could prevent women from seeking help. https://twitter.com/whitehouse/status/1617254668488278017

The White House @WhiteHouse

In states where abortion is restricted, doctors live in fear of being thrown in jail for simply doing their job.

Dr. Zahedi-Spung shares her story as we call on Congress to protect reproductive freedom for the people of America.
