The art of interviewing

On Fox News Sunday this morning, just as occurred last week, Democrats attempted to defend the Obama administration’s decision to read the Christmas Day bomber his Miranda rights after only 50 minutes of interrogation. This week it was Rep. Chris Van Hollen and NPR commentator Juan Williams who attempted to peddle the theory that U.S. […]

A Kinsleyan gaffe

A gaffe, according to editor and columnist Michael Kinsley, is when a politician accidentally tells the truth. President Barack Obama made one yesterday when he did a Q&A with the House Republican conference – one no one seemed to notice. THE PRESIDENT: Tom [Price, R-Ga.], look, I have to say that on the -- let's […]

Belated SOTU thoughts

Yes, I watched the State of the Union speech Wednesday night. After suffering through 70 minutes of it, I was presented with a dilemma. I could blog about a speech that everyone and their mother had already blogged about or I could play Mass Effect 2. Mass Effect 2 won. I did make some comments […]

Partisanship defined

This sort of behavior is just bizarre. ow partisan can Congress get? Here's an instructive example from today: The Idaho Wilderness Water Facilities Act. You've surely never heard of it. It's an extremely obscure and non-controversial piece of legislation regarding certain water uses in two areas of Idaho wilderness. It has the support of both […]

Talk about a good start

I’ve just started reading Stephen Hunter’s latest novel, “I, Sniper” and it has perhaps the best opening pages of any book in recorded history.

More speech

Earlier this week, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that when the First Amendment says “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech” that it actually meant that. At issue was a movie made by Citizens United – a corporation – that attacked Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Because Citizens United is a […]

So much for the “reality-based community.” Here’s The Nation editor Katrina vanden  Heuvel in The Wall Street Journal offering advice to President Barack Obama in the wake of the Democrats’ loss of their 60-seat supermajority in the Senate on Tuesday. And here's a no-brainer: After a year of being knifed by the GOP at every […]

The man is not this stupid

At least I hope he isn’t. STEPHANOPOULOS: Robert Gibbs was saying that you were surprised and frustrated by the vote [in Massachusetts to elect Republican Scott Brown]. Is that accurate? OBAMA: Well, I think not last night, but certainly I think a lot of us were surprised about where this was going, about a week […]

Your laugh for the day

UPDATE Had to swap out the video because some moron added some bolshevik storytelling graphic to it and ruined it. This one appears to be unadulterated.
