29th Olympiad

I didn't watch the opening ceremonies -- I'm a sports fan, not a "ceremonies" fan. That's one of the reasons that the Olympics, as broadcast by NBC, is too often a disappointment. When they have the World Cup half way across the world, they air the games whenever they actually occur -- whether that's in […]

An inconvenient boat

Al Gore's got a new houseboat named "Bio-Solar One. Yes, BS-1. I can't make this up. The boat is a custom-built Fantasy Yacht built specifically for Gore by Bill Austin of Sparta, Tennessee. According to Austin, the engines are bio-diesel fueled and Gore can expect to use about two gallons an hour to cruise Center […]

Obama's energy "plan"

Sen. Barack Obama's energy plan gets a brutal reality check from The Washington Post editorial board today. The Post first assails Obama's plan to do a meaningless swap of light-crude for heavy-crude in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and then they really lay into him. Meanwhile, thanks to high crude oil prices, energy companies are, indeed, […]

Ezra Levant "acquitted"

Ezra Levant, former publisher of the ex-Western Standard magazine was acquitted on "discrimination" charges for having the audacity to publish the infamous Muhammed cartoons.

Keith Olbermann's dishonesty

I made the mistake of pausing for about 3 seconds as I flipped past MSNBC earlier this evening. Olbermann was talking with Jonathan Alter and noted (correctly) that the gas tax holiday Sen. John McCain and Hillary Clinton had supported was a gimmick. On the other hand, Olbermann noted that Sen. Barack Obama's "increased" (not […]

Obama sees the light

No, I'm not talking about the heavenly light that emanates from his mere countenance. On Friday, Sen. Barack Obama said that he would be open to a compromise that would allow "limited" offshore drilling as part of a package of other alternative energy solutions. Is it a flip-flop? Yes, but so was John McCain's abandonment […]

Weighing the candidates

I was asked the following question a couple of weeks back and I think everyone deserves an answer: "Is there anything you think John McCain's done wrong or Barack Obama's done right?" Things I think McCain's done wrong -- in no particular order: His continued opposition to drilling in ANWR. McCain-Feingold (campaign finance "reform") McCain-Kennedy […]
