From Journalism to Politics

Following up on yesterday's announcement that former ABC News reporter Linda Douglass (who most recently worked for National Journal) had taken a job as a senior adviser/spokeswoman for Sen. Barack Obama's campaign, there's some reporting that raises questions on what sorts of disclosures Douglass should've been making in the weeks and months leading up to […]

Schumer's bad math

New York Sen. Chuck Schumer last month: "Oil price goes through the roof and what does the president do? He takes out the old saw of ANWR," said Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY), speaking at a rebuttal press conference. "ANWR wouldn't produce a drop of oil in 10 years, and it's estimated that if they drilled […]

Magical Unicorn Power

I spent $55.55 today to fill up the gas tank on my car. It's gotten to the point where I'm spending about $200 a month on gas due to my 66 mile roundtrip daily commute. Pretty quickly it's going to get to the point where I crash a few nights a week at the Hoy […]

Students across the nation are once again going through that rite of passage known as graduation. Unfortunately for too many (and one is too many), what they get in a commencement speaker is someone far too interested in politics and not in the students they come to campus to address and inspire. In the interest […]

You need a program to keep it straight

Then: OK, so Iran is a "tiny" country that doesn't pose a "serious" threat to the United States.

"Prince Caspian" continues the adventures of the Pevensie children in Narnia, this time called back by the title character to help restore Narnia and reclaim his throne from his usurping uncle.

Dealing with Iran

Here's John McCain's remarks on Barack Obama's prospective Iran policy. Before I begin my prepared remarks, I want to respond briefly to a comment Senator Obama made yesterday about the threat posed to the United States by the Government of Iran. Senator Obama claimed that the threat Iran poses to our security is “tiny” compared […]

There's a 10 a.m. in the morning

I've been awake for over an hour. I took my car into the dealer to get it checked out. A couple of times in the past few days the warning light for the electronic stability control system has gone on -- so I'm going to have them check it out. It only seems to have […]
