Obama Smacks Around Pat Robertson’s Crew

By |July 30th, 2007|

Video above by Max Blumenthal As a person of faith, I get incensed when Democratic elders start talking about how so many of us are afraid of religion and that we are reticent to address spiritual issues.

It’s the Politics, Brookings

By |July 30th, 2007|

How in the world can you write an op-ed talking about winning in Iraq after only visiting Sunni areas in that country? Then to top that omission, to then trumpet winning in Iraq because we're making military progress? Memo to O'Hanlon and Pollack, it's the politics that is keeping the pot on boil, boys. Here [...]

Defining a Partisan

By |July 29th, 2007|

This is just weird, not to mention wrong. In the blogosphere, pillorying Hillary Clinton is a full-time sport. Her slightest remark, such as a recent assertion that the country needs a female president because there is so much cleaning up to do, elicited this sort of wisdom: "Hillary isn't actually a woman, she's a cyborg, [...]

Impeach Gonzales

By |July 28th, 2007|

From the New York Times: President Bush often insists he has to be the decider — ignoring Congress and the public when it comes to the tough matters on war, terrorism and torture, even deciding whether an ordinary man in Florida should be allowed to let his wife die with dignity.

Cleavage Friday!

By |July 27th, 2007|

Good grief. Robin Givhan's ridiculous Clinton cleavage artcile has suddenly made her lamely defensive. She wasn't talking about Clinton's cleavage. It was all about her "neckline." Uh-huh. Yeah, and the media wasn't really talking about John Edwards hair either. He's been the poster boy for How the media can run away from issues in order [...]

It’s Called Fratricide

By |July 27th, 2007|

The government's unraveling story of Pat Tillman's death just keeps getting worse. The more truth that escapes their grasp the more obvious this story becomes. You can call it "friendly fire" or fratricide, but it all comes down to the same thing. The cover up of a soldier's death. ESPN's Mike Fish is a good [...]
