Poor Ken Salazar

Colorado's Jr. Senator, Democrat Ken Salazar, was in the inenviable position on the Senate floor this afternoon of being the designated "objector" for Senate Democrats. Yep, that's right. There now exists video of a Democrat voicing opposition to drilling off the outer continental shelf and ANWR even if the price of gas at the pump […]

Keep talking

For someone with a Harvard Law School degree, Sen. Barack Obama's sure got a bad case of the stupids. Regular tune-ups + proper tire inflation = All the oil off the outer continental shelf + Alaska Thats so incredibly not true that it's jaw-dropping.

I blame global warming

Yes, an earthquake hit southern California shortly before noon Tuesday. It was magnitude 5.4. Yes, most of us noticed it. No, no one got hurt. No, nothing was damaged. We've been through it before. It'll happen again. There was no reason for the news channels to run all-quake, all-the-time for the next three hours. The […]

Preach it, brother!

Brother Gerard Baker of the Times of London has this reading from the book of the Obamessiah. And it came to pass, in the eighth year of the reign of the evil Bush the Younger (The Ignorant), when the whole land from the Arabian desert to the shores of the Great Lakes had been laid […]

Contributing to the Obama is a Muslim canard

CNN's Christiane Amanpour is a complete moron. Her question at yesterday's joint press conference between the Obamessiah and French President Nicolas Sarkozy was the height of stupidity. Do you remember when your elementary school teacher told you there was no such thing as a stupid question? She was lying to you. There is such a […]

Greasing the doorways

Occasionally I'll come across someone who's boasting about this or that and I'll say, jokingly, that I'm going to go and grease the doorway so we can get their ego out the door. I'm not sure there's enough grease in the world for Sen. Barack Obama. From an interview with CBS News' Lara Logan: Logan: […]

It was a weak field for @PolitiFact's "Lie of the Year" readers' poll this year, so I wrote in a suggestion.

The suggestion may not be original with me, so apologies to anyone who specifically suggested this one before.

🧵Please indulge me more on this topic: Yesterday's Bloomberg article misrepresenting Thune's comments on entitlement reform is part of a broader issue:
Most media coverage of Social Security, Medicare & unsustainable debt has long been narrative-driven and, yes, dishonest. (1/)
