Souter to retire

Stealth Justice David Souter will retire. Souter got his seat on the Supreme Court by snookering President George H. W. Bush with an assist from Warren Rudman. If you're wondering just how radical President Barack Obama's views are, just wait to see who he nominates.

Is the luster coming off?

Earlier this month I noted that the Associated Press' "Fact Check" feature was more critical of President Barack Obama than Politifact.com's when it came to whether or not the increased cigarette tax violated Obama's pledge not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000. On Obama's 100th day, the AP came out with another […]

Glass houses, stones

This is funny: Dear Mr. Olbermann, While General Electric, the parent-company of your MSNBC network, was negotiating a $126 billion taxpayer-funded bailout, you signed a new contract raising your salary from $4 million to $7.5 million annually. You have used your show as a platform to call for the resignation of corporate executives accepting excessive […]

HD-DVD to Blu-Ray switch

I follow tech news pretty closely, but I had missed this news for all of you who, like me, picked the wrong horse in the HD-DVD/Blu-Ray battle. (After the Betamax fiasco, really, who could blame me when Sony came out with another proprietary format that was more expensive and provided only a nominal benefit over […]

Billions wasted

President George W. Bush's last mistake as he left the White House was his decision to use TARP funds -- under what authority no one knows -- to keep GM and Chrysler afloat until the Obama administration could come in and decide what to do. It appears as though the Obama administration is going to […]

Specter's switch

Earlier today Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter decided to join the Democratic party. The standard joke appears to be: "So what's new?" Specter has been increasingly at odds with rank-and-file Republicans -- especially where it matters -- in his home state. Numerous polls showed Specter upwards of 20 points down in a GOP primary matchup against […]

Disproving the 9/11 conspiracy theories

The same government that did this, could never achieve what the conspiracy nuts claim they did on 9/11/01. Workers and residents evacuated themselves from several downtown Manhattan buildings Monday morning after a low-flying Boeing 747 was spotted above the city's skyline. The aircraft was a White House plane taking part in a government-sanctioned photo shoot, […]

Monday's must-reads

President Obama is below the Mendoza line on his transparency promise. Of the 11 bills he's signed into law, only one has met his five-day public comment requirement. Anthony Watts takes note of a statement by Rep. Henry Waxman on global warming and carbon emissions. “We’re seeing the reality of a lot of the North […]

George Stephanopoulos, useful idiot

On ABC News' "This Week," host George Stephanopoulos interviewed Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and demonstrated appalling incompetence. STEPHANOPOULOS: President Obama says that's exactly what he wants right now. He says he wants a new beginning in a relationship with Iran. He sent a message to the Iranian people on the occasion of the Nowruz holiday […]

Items of note

UPDATE! This post has been updated! First off, Norah O'Donnell is a moron. Evidence: Second, the Democratic machine in Washington State successfully stole the 2004 gubernatorial election there from Republican Dino Rossi. The state has settled intrepid blogger/citizen Stefan Sharkansky's public records lawsuit for $250,000. The lawsuit stemmed from my December 2004 request for a […]

The pattern among critics of the DeVos regs that powerful political leaders (Biden, Cuomo, now Stringer) deserve the due process that these same figures seek to deny to random college students remains something to behold.
