Obama’s intangible cost-benefit analysis.

With a cost-benefit analysis system as obtuse and intangible as this, what’s the point of having one? Ah, but that indeed is the point, and exemplifies everything that is wrong with liberal government — all things are executed using the basis of immeasurable metrics. Here’s the Wall Street Journal commenting on President Obama’s recent executive […]

The final nail in the “blame Palin” coffin.

Oh, wait, can I say coffin, or might that instigate a mass murderer into action? The mainstream media’s “blame Palin” crosshairs map has just about died a natural death despite a few blatant liberal mobilizers, the vast majority of the American public being far more rational and reasonable than the vast majority of New York […]

Sheriff Doofus attacks Limbaugh, urges Fed commission on “civility.”

Give. Me. A. Break. [ABC News] The Arizona sheriff investigating the Tucson shooting that left U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords critically wounded had harsh words today for those engaging in political rhetoric, calling conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh “irresponsible” for continuing the vitriol. … “The kind of rhetoric that flows from people like Rush Limbaugh, in […]

Beating the dead horse, but…

Here’s Jay Nordlinger: Even before Bush was elected president, the kill-Bush talk and imagery started. When Governor Bush was delivering his 2000 convention speech, Craig Kilborn, a CBS talk-show host, showed him on the screen with the words “SNIPERS WANTED.” Six years later, Bill Maher, the comedian-pundit, was having a conversation with John Kerry. He […]

If the MSM won’t do their job others will.

Here’s an interesting note found by Atlas Shrugs. It’s another example of the Mainstream Media (MSM) becoming so caught up in acting as paid agents for the Democrat Party that they miss the forest for trees. We’re to believe that through some strange osmosis person A says something “inciting” that in turn causes person B […]

Emanuelites politicize Tucson mass murder.

“Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you couldn’t do before.” — Former Obama White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. Here’s Glenn Reynolds: Those who try to connect Sarah Palin and other political figures with whom they disagree to the shootings […]

Many examples of liberal hate rhetoric.

Nothing displays the blatant hypocrisy of the liberal intelligentsia like an act of mass murder. There’s many examples to choose from in the wake of the attempted assassination of Gabrielle Giffords, but take this gem by The New Yorker’s George Packer: …for the past two years, many conservative leaders, activists, and media figures have made […]

Fort Hood shooter? Don’t jump to conclusions. Tuscon shooting? It’s Sarah Palin’s fault!

Great commentary by Byron York: On November 5, 2009, Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at a troop readiness center in Ft. Hood, Texas, killing 13 people. Within hours of the killings, the world knew that Hasan reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar!” before he began shooting, visited websites associated with Islamist violence, wrote Internet postings justifying Muslim […]

Americans have become the Yangs of Star Trek.

Here’s the Cato Institute’s Roger Pilon. But first, do you remember the old Star Trek (nerd alert: The Omega Glory) where Kirk, Spock, McCoy and a hapless red-shirted security guard beam down to a planet where the inhabitants, calling themselves “Yangs” and “Kohms,” short for Yankees and Communists, have been warring for centuries? A renegade […]
