Big Bird Backfires on Obama.

A year ago even the liberally-slanted Politifact had to agree with Republican Sen. Jim DeMint criticisms that Sesame Workshop (i.e., Sesame Street) was a prime example of taxpayer waste and subsidy abuse. At that time DeMint pointed out that Sesame Workshop made about 2.5 times its profit than its production costs, and, “from 2003 to […]

Senators propose swapping Google with “Panel of Experts.”

I was ROFL, as they say or rather tweet/text, when I read the part where senators recommended replacing Google search formulas with a “panel of experts.” I mean, if that doesn’t sum up everything that is wrong with the government I don’t know what does. Has any government panel of experts ever solved anything? (Example, […]

Protesting the government they’re demanding.

Here’s a great commentary by Jonah Goldberg (from his G-file e-letter) on the OWS movement: As I mentioned in the Corner, I love this story about the fraying tensions among the Occupy Wall Street crowd. Aside from the general schadenfreudtasticness of it all, I found this bit to contain some fascinating contradictions. Apparently some of […]

Protesters on wrong street.

Beyond the Occupy Wall Street crowd playing the part of the “useful idiots” of organized socialist, national socialist (i.e., Nazi)  and communist parties, you’ve got a massive number of economically-ignorant, naive or at minimum mis-educated youths who seem unaware that they’re protesting the wrong street: Instead of occupying Wall Street they should be occupying K-street, […]

PETA’s latest non-sequitur.

SARASOTA — Following an apparent shark attack in the Bay area this weekend, the animal rights organization PETA has announced plans to run an outdoor advertising campaign attacking a recent Bay area shark attack victim. The organization plans to promote an ad that shows a human “drumstick” hanging out of a shark’s mouth, next to […]

Bachmann fumbles.

You know when you’re watching a football game, and the spunky, sprite running back is twisting and juking, amazing the crowd, and all of the sudden, at the worst possible moment, the running back fumbles, giving momentum to the other team, and then the coach sits the distraught player down for the rest of the […]

Team Obama REALLY doesn’t get it.

Just yesterday I posted that the Obama cult demonstrates an increasing disconnect from and disregard of economics, but this example of disrespecting the American public takes the cake. [Associated Press] Secretary Steven Chu came out swinging Friday against a House bill that would repeal a 2007 federal law effectively outlawing older forms of incandescent bulbs—an […]

Wisconsin Democrats against Democracy.

I don’t know which group is more unconscionable, the Wisconsin state Democrats or that state’s unions. The former group actually fled the state rather than participate in a vote on Wisconsin governor Scott Walker’s proposal to have state workers become financial participants in retirement and health care costs (something that every private sector Wisconsin citizen […]

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 […]
