John "Chutzpah" Edwards

It takes an enormous amount of gall to be Democrat presidential hopeful John Edwards. Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards told a labor group he would ask Americans to make a big sacrifice: their sport utility vehicles. The former North Carolina senator told a forum by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers in Lake […]

A crumbling consensus

Courtesy of QandO, which is celebrating its fourth anniversary, we have this story from Daily Tech on what the scientific consensus is on anthropogenic global warming. In 2004, history professor Naomi Oreskes performed a survey of research papers on climate change. Examining peer-reviewed papers published on the ISI Web of Science database from 1993 to […]

The gift that keeps on giving

This post has been updated. The New York Times editorial board is a partisan, ideologically homogeneous cadre of elite leftist thinking -- not that there's anything wrong with that. The problem is that their partisanship often takes the truth out into the alley out back, beats the tar out of it and leaves it bruised […]

Filner's foot

San Diego-area Rep. Bob "I'm a congressman, I can do whatever I want" Filner addressed the annual convention of the American Legion today. Filner, I think, stuck his foot in his mouth, but I think most are too kind to point it out. Filner advocated more mental health care for members of the military returning […]

Whose ox gets gored?

I was always a big "Bloom County" fan growing up. I loved the idea of pear pimples for hairy fishnuts and the torrid affair between U.N. Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick and Bill the Cat was hilarious. When cartoonist Berkeley Breathed made political points, he was never as overbearing and unfunny as Garry Trudeau's "Doonesbury." Breathed is […]

But there's another question

Chicago's Episcopal Diocese has nominated a lesbian priest who's in an (by definition) extramarital relationship with another woman to the rank of bishop. The real question is this: Is she a Christian or a Muslim? Nowadays it's a question you have to ask.

Resign now

Sen. Larry "Wide Stance" Craig should resign his seat. Craig's statement today on his Web site was the wrong one, seeing as how it is not a resignation. The good news: Republicans are asking for an ethics investigation of one of their own. That's a refreshing change from the impulse to cover for one of […]

Something fishy going on

The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign is getting a lot of money from a very unlikely source. One of the biggest sources of political donations to Hillary Rodham Clinton is a tiny, lime-green bungalow that lies under the flight path from San Francisco International Airport. Six members of […]

She's got a future

Lauren Caitlin Upton, third runner-up in the Miss Teen USA contest, has a bright future. Well, there's a reason they call it a beauty pageant and not a quiz bowl.

BDS and Bill Moyers

Bill Moyers, who has spread his left-wing ideology for decades courtesy of your contributions to the Public Broadcasting System, is a hateful, despicable little man. And I may be putting it much too nicely. A little over a week ago, in the wake of the announcement of the resignation of presidential adviser Karl Rove, Moyers […]

@ZebraFactCheck @PolitiFactBias The majority of posts I saw talking about the 1% were noting the accurate 40% stat. It's telling PolitiFact went searching for the claim they could swat down as "false," rather than fact-checking the accurate claim as "true." Reminds me of this exchange https://twitter.com/fact_meta/status/1431378857798488068

@kentorianu @ZebraFactCheck @PolitiFact Since there's concern about bad faith arguments, I'll make it simple.

Vaccinated people can spread variants. True or False?
