Abortionist George Tiller murdered

The gunman has been arrested. I will reprint Robert P. George's comments, because they most closely mirror mine. Whoever murdered George Tiller has done a gravely wicked thing.  The evil of this action is in no way diminished by the blood George Tiller had on his own hands.  No private individual had the right to […]

Don't pick a fight with the blogs

It's been quite some time since I've watched Bill O'Reilly's show on a regular basis. While I agree with him more often than not, I've been repeatedly frustrated by his failure to do adequate research and his interview of then-candidate Barack Obama was embarrassing. O'Reilly would ask a difficult question of Obama, and then when […]

Playing politics with the Justice Department

Remember back when Democrats cared about the "politicization" of the Justice Department after President George W. Bush fired a handful of U.S. attorneys -- people who serve at the president's pleasure? Well, those days are apparently long gone. From The Washington Times comes word that President Barack Obama's political appointees have overruled career Justice Department […]

Job search continues

On a personal note: I'm still looking for a job. I've got some solid leads, but I'd really like to have some more options before I move forward. On that note, I think a government job might be good. As Jason Pye over at QandO notes, President Obama has said he has "created" 150,000 jobs […]

Checking the racial boxes

Yesterday, President Barack Obama announced the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to replace Justice David Souter on the Supreme Court. Sotomayor is a woman (so now Ginsberg will have someone to go to the bathroom with), a Hispanic, and a lefty -- and those appear to be the three most important things in her selection. Barring […]

Turning on a dime

I haven't commented on last week's dueling speeches between President Barack Obama and former Vice President Dick Cheney. From a purely political standpoint, the fact that Cheney is the one making these sorts of speeches just goes to show you how shallow the GOP bench is on national security issues. As former federal prosecutor Andrew […]

Killing Africans

The U.N. is reversing its position supporting the use of indoor spraying of DDT to prevent malaria in Africa. In 2006, after 25 years and 50 million preventable deaths, the World Health Organization reversed course and endorsed widespread use of the insecticide DDT to combat malaria. So much for that. Earlier this month, the U.N. […]

Emily Gertz is stuck on stupid

Emily Gertz is the "journalist" referenced below who suggested that Representatives Michelle Bachmann and John Shimkus commit suicide because they reject her belief that CO2 is a dangerous gas. A similar "experiment" to the one Gertz suggested would be to put a plant in a clear plastic bag and watch it "suffocate due to an […]

Beware of "journalists" doing science

Courtesy of James Taranto at "Best of the Web Today," comes this hilarious link by a "journalist" covering the global warming debate. Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) (above) on how carbon dioxide is harmless because it's in cola...Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) echoing House colleague Michelle Bachmann's (R-Minn.) recent "harmless gas" routine by saying that CO2 just […]

Acceptance, not tolerance pt. 2

In a post earlier this month, I noted that gay rights organizations aren't interested in tolerance, they demand acceptance. Yesterday, legislation that would make gay marriage legal in New Hampshire faces a veto from a centrist Democrat governor because of gay marriage supporters. How can that be? Simple. To strike a compromise, both chambers had […]
