Useful idiot?

Allahpundit over at HotAir characterizes Rep. Ron Paul as a “useful idiot” because Paul said on CNN: “They’re terrorists because we’re occupiers!” regarding the attempted Christmas Day jihadi airline bombing. Useful? Nope. I don't think he's useful to anyone. Idiot? Check. For the record, Allahpundit notes that Paul also has his facts wrong. According to […]

Remember when

Bush caught all sorts of crap for that one from the media. That was then, this is now. TEEING OFF: A half-hour after President Obama vowed to catch the terrorists behind a plot to blow up a plane on Christmas, he arrived at 10:40 a.m. at the Luana Hills Country Club, where a golf course […]

Anatomy of a slur

The Chicago Tribune’s Clarence Page is feeling some heat for using a sexual slur to describe the Tea Party movement. Like many of his brethren in the largely liberal mainstream media, he feels that because some early Tea Party movement members were ignorant of the sexual connotation of the slur, it’s OK for him to […]

Hoystory reads

I just finished two Clive Cussler books to wrap up this extended holiday weekend (the first one I’ve had in a decade and a half). The first was “The Wrecker” the sequel to the exciting “The Chase” introducing us to the character of Isaac Bell, the top agent with the Van Dorn Detective Agency. Like […]

What would “broken” look like?

On Christmas day, an al Qaeda-linked terrorist attempted to blow-up a passenger plane destined for Detroit. The “suspect,” Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab, apparently had explosives sewn into his underwear which he tried, but failed, to detonate. Let’s debunk one bit of leftist dogma right off. Abudulmutallab was not poor and uneducated. Like the vast majority of […]

Blood is thicker than lots of money

Former President Jimmy Carter, author of the excreble “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid” has had a conversion experience. Former President Jimmy Carter apologized for any words or deeds that may have upset the Jewish community in an open letter meant to improve an often-tense relationship.

Magic scissors

Nearly 20 years ago I wrote a letter to the editor of Cal Poly SLO’s student newspaper, The Mustang Daily, in response to a pro-abortion rights column wondering at the existence of “magic scissors.” Back before partial-birth abortion was a widely known and widely used term, abortion-on-demand supporters were still making the case that abortions […]

Thomas Frank to conservatives: Drop dead

The Wall Street Journal’s house liberal Thomas Frank, like many on the left, has taken a look at the media landscape and decided that the MSM has too many conservatives. This is a terrible time for newspapers, but the solutions suggested over the last year by the deep thinkers of the floundering industry give one […]

But the doctors were so sure … Pt. 2

Last month, I mentioned the case of Rom Houben who was believed to be in a persistent vegetative state for decades, but was in fact conscious for much of the time. One commenter noted that Houben was using “facilitated communication,” i.e. a therapist was helping Houben use a keyboard to communicate, and Houben's consciousness may […]

You know, it’s starting to be old hat bashing Politifact for its partisan “analysis” of various politicos’ statements, but this one is particularly outrageous. The target is GOP Rep. Mike Pence of Ohio Indiana and his “half true” statement is this: "To use money from the TARP fund in the manner that is being discussed […]
