Well, yes

According to The Hill, Rep. James Clyburn when told of the Republicans' latest offer on the supercommittee to reduce the budget deficit complained “Do we look stupid?” he told The Hill after leaving a meeting with Democratic members of the panel. “I mean, I don’t know, maybe we do. I certainly am not stupid.” I […]

Can’t stop the stupid

There are far too many regulators and there are far too many idiots who get jobs as regulators. I can’t make this up. EU bans claim that water can prevent dehydration Brussels bureaucrats were ridiculed yesterday after banning drink manufacturers from claiming that water can prevent dehydration.

You can’t negotiate with stupid

Rep. James Clyburn is one of the Democrats on the so-called super-committee tasked with identifying $1.2 Trillion in savings before Nov. 23. Chris Wallace interviewed him on “Fox News Sunday” this morning and viewers were treated to these whoppers. WALLACE: Well, that's a problem right there, 10 days out, that the Democrats don't have a […]

Maybe he’s a creep

I didn’t get to watch the video of the Gloria Allred press conference with the woman who claims that GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain had sexually assaulted her, so I can’t speak to whether I found the woman’s claims to be persuasive. It’s possible Cain’s a lecherous cretin. It’s possible that people are lying in […]

Double standard

I’m not surprised. I spent 15 years in newspaper newsrooms up and down the left coast. I knew they were populated by and large by the American left. The political theory typically ran from the far, far left to the center left, with an occasional “a pox on both your houses” libertarian here and there. […]

A brief word on Cain

The media coverage this week of allegations that Herman Cain sexually harassed some women back in the ’90s are so devoid of details and incriminating facts so as to be less than useless. What we know is that Cain allegedly did some thing or things that made a couple women uncomfortable. If that’s the standard […]

Yet another dishonest fact-checker

Glenn Kessler of The Washington Post pens a doozy has he tries to whitewash Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s racist, eugenicist past. I could spend weeks ripping into Kessler’s misdirection, obfuscation and penchant for defining words in the most obtuse fashion, but Mollie Z. Hemingway at has already done it.

High-speed rail a slo-mo disaster

When last we visited California’s high speed rail plan, the powers that be had decided to start the line between Corcoran and Borden (combined population: 25,000) at a cost of $4.15 billion with $2.25 billion of federal funds. As I noted at the time: So, the state’s going to spend $4 billion it doesn’t have […]

Force of habit

She apparently just got used to stealing from the taxpayers, she didn't realize it's only legal if you use the state's taxing power. Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi has been charged with felony grand theft after allegedly being caught by security officers stealing nearly $2,500 in clothing from a San Francisco Neiman Marcus store. The 45-year-old Castro […]

Starting to watch the Wheel of Time and they screw with it 60 seconds in, suggesting the Dragon Reborn might be a woman. That could never work in the world Robert Jordan created.

Marcus Arbery, father of Ahmaud, who was senselessly murdered, had every reason to give an angry & vindictive speech, & he would have been applauded for doing so

Instead he affirmed his faith in the Kingian vision of racial equality, and in so doing restores our faith in America
