Happy Fathers Day

I spent the afternoon with the family and treated everyone to a lunch at the Prado in Balboa Park. The meal was excellent and was definitely a step above the typical fare that the Hoy clan consumes. After returning to my parents' casa, we watched the local news, which reminded me of why I never […]

Dixie Twits

When Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines announced to a British audiance a couple years back that she was "ashamed" that President Bush was from Texas, the same state that produced her, country music stations stopped playing their songs and some even organized CD-destruction-fests reminiscent of those that accompanied the revelation that Milli Vanilli were […]

What Eric Wynalda said

When the U.S. Soccer team lost earlier this week to the Czech Republic, I was disappointed. The Americans played lazy and uninspiring soccer. Today's game was a mirror image with the U.S. forcing the action on the Italian side of the pitch, even when they were down 10 men to nine. They still ended up […]

Pop a cop

The Associated Press is reporting that a grand jury in Washington, D.C., has refused to indict Rep. Cynthia McKinney for punching a Capitol Hill police officer. Remember, they're intrinsically better people than you.

WWHD?

I'm reading a transcript of yesterday's on-air debate between radio host Hugh Hewitt and The New Republic's Peter Beinart when they have this exchange over What Would Harry Do? HH: And I think Harry Truman would agree with that. I don't think Harry Truman would ever agree to the International Criminal Court, do you? PB: […]

Told you so

It's such an old, lame joke that it doesn't even cause you to crack a smile anymore when you hear it. How can you tell when a politician is lying? His lips are moving. Earlier this week Brian Bilbray was sworn in to replace disgraced Congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham and it didn't take him long […]

Headline of the day

When Germany defeated Poland 1-0 in the World Cup on Wednesday, you knew that there were going to be many oppportunities for good headlines. Of course, FARK is usually the place to go: Germans smash through Polish defense. Again.

Slander and dishonesty

Maybe I shouldn't have been so hard on New York Times columnist Paul Krugman for being a dishonest in many of his columns over the past five years -- he's merely a product of his environment. The Times editorial page is perhaps the most dishonest of any in the nation. I've pointed out before how […]

More antidiscrimination law vs. freedom of religion

Matthew J. Franck has a brief note over on National Review's "Bench Memos" blog on another case that pitted civil rights law against freedom of religion. The good news: freedom of religion won. In that light, here’s a good-news story: last week a panel of the Third Circuit held that Ursuline Academy, a girls’ Catholic […]

Your money's still good

A sane district court judge in San Francisco of all places has tossed out Michael Newdow's latest lawsuit claiming that "In God We Trust" on legal tender is, well, illegal. Newdow claimed that by using coins and currency bearing the phrase, he is forced to carry religious dogma, proselytise and evangelise for monotheism. You know, […]

Why, one must ask, was the suit against Biden's student debt wipe “inevitable”?

Was it because the Biden admin is in flagrant violation of the law, and because *everyone* in America knows it?

Not in Waldman’s view, apparently. | @charlescwcooke
