Oh My Goodness

I almost made a complete mess of Peter’s monitor after reading this one. Good thing I’d swallowed my coffee before I got to the end of the paragraph. Also in the American Thinker, by Jack Kemp (not that one, the other one): I recently got around to buying the 1996 documentary movie Fire On the […]

Bill's Talking Points Smack Down

Edward Daley at the American Thinker has a nice essay on why Bill O’Reilly irritates the crap out of him, too, and it’s a bit more polished than mine was. Sure, he’s been known to cut off more than a few babbling nitwits who’ve refused to answer his questions directly, but for the most part, […]

Does Anyone Know Who Helen Is?

From yesterday’s White House Press Briefing: Helen, go ahead. Q Why are we killing people in Iraq? There are many men, women and children being killed there.

Oh Canada…

Well, Bush made it, and he still hasn’t been arrested, despite his deep unpopularity. The Beeb had this to say, though, which cracked me up: Canada, used to being virtually ignored in the US, has recently become the new favourite target of right-wing radio talk shows and of the popular, notoriously outspoken Fox News TV […]

The Di Tapes

Sky News is doing one of its “Your Views” on those tapes that I didn’t watch last night. And most of them are the usual “let the woman rest in peace,” but this one guy says: If they were newly-found tapes of speeches by Churchill or John Kennedy they would be broadcast without any argument. […]

Nelson Ascher Is Very Brave

Brazil’s Contribution to the World: On the other hand, driving in my town (and it’s even worse in Rio) is much more of a Hobbesian experience, a war of all against all… As a result, over 40,000 people are killed every year on our streets and roads: as many as those who are murdered with […]

MSM Gets Back Slapped 21 Times

They say repetition is the key to persuasion. This, however, makes me pause. Still angry that they couldn’t deliver their fifteen percent.” Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit, Nov. 3 Considering how crazy their party platform is, I think they did get their fifteen percent.

Just When I Thought It Was Safe To Come Out Again

I managed to keep my pure soul untarnished by avoiding Alexander the Great, and finally felt safe enough to venture out of my gay-free home, when I hear that Ken Mehlmann might be gay. So much for being a Republican. I guess I have to be a Democrat. I mean, isn’t that the point of […]
