If average intelligence is the standard…

Courtesy of “Best of the Web Today,” comes this gem from the courtroom of U.S. District Judge Audrey “average intelligence” Collins. “A federal judge struck down President Bush’s authority to designate groups as terrorists, saying his post-Sept. 11 executive order was unconstitutionally vague, according to a ruling released Tuesday,” the Associated Press reports: The case […]

Lindsay Lohan, known equally for her “acting” and hedonistic partying, has released a letter of condolence that she sent to the family of deceased director Robert Altman. Hollywood stars like Lohan have publicists, right? Maybe the publicist should hire a copyeditor before allowing Lohan to display her “writings” in public.

Virginia is for nutjobs

First you had Virginia’s incumbent Sen. George Allen “macaca” himself out of office with the help of an overzealous Washington Post. Now you’ve got that same state’s Sen.-elect, Jim Webb, embracing his inner jackass. At a recent White House reception for freshman members of Congress, Virginia’s newest senator tried to avoid President Bush. Democrat James […]

Please see important update at the bottom of this post. If you haven’t seen the movie “End of the Spear,” it’s out on video and you should pick it up. The film about four Christian missionaries who were brutally killed by the Waodani tribe of Ecuador focuses mainly on the Saint family. One of the […]

There’s been a brouhaha in some of the right-wing media criticism sites over a move to describe Iraq today as being in the throes of a civil war. (See here, here and here.) Personally, despite the disconcerting level of violence that is going on in the Sunni-triangle area of Iraq, I don’t think that it’s […]

Just got back from seeing the latest James Bond flick. Sunday night is the best time to go — I shared the theater with two other people — it’s almost like having your own private 80-foot big screen television set. Anyway, Casino Royale is possibly the best Bond film ever. Yes, I’ve seen them all. […]

The useless Saudis

Denver Post columnist David Harsanyi had an excellent column last week that I didn’t want you to miss. Luckily, Colorado Attorney General John Suthers isn’t Jewish. Or a woman. Or gay. The clown princes and oligarchs of Saudi Arabia don’t take kindly to those kinds of people in their midst. Then again, Christians, Hindis, Buddhists, […]

It will be curious to see if the media in the coming days gives Rep. Charlie Rangel’s “members of the military only join because they can’t get a good job” comments similar play to Sen. John Kerry’s “the troops are stupid” slur. On “Fox News Sunday” this morning, Rangel had the following to say : […]

Channeling my inner loon

Posted · Add Comment

Whenever some nutjob threatens a Supreme Court justice or some other assorted liberal politician (yes, I’ve purposefully conflated some judges with political operatives — because they act that way) the loons on the left lay blame on talk radio or the right-wing blogosphere. Curiously, these same people are untroubled by the hate and bile from […]
