Ubiquitous Malevolence

If everyone was basically good, if we lived in Utopia, Wikipedia would work. But since politics exists, it doesn’t. They might have a date or an established fact you can get anywhere else, but it’s not a source for objectivity on hot topics. Wait, if Wikipedia is only good for information I can get anywhere else, doesn’t that mean it’s effectively pointless?

Political Prisoners

CNS News reporters very astutely asked Press Secretary Jay Carney, “Is that a campaign event or a presidential event?” To which Carney said, “Negative. That is an official event.” Official, huh? “So it is being funded by taxpayers in battleground states?” Asked the reporter.

Give Me Mo Brooks

U.S. Representative Mo Brooks (Rep. AL) took on MSNBC news anchor Contessa Brewer today. This is priceless. For the full interview in context, go here. Brewer was trying to explain to Rep.

Well, That Would Require Articulate Republicans

Its seems as though politicians these days, on both sides of the isle, have become less and less articulate. Perhaps it’s because they have less and less good things to say… Anyway, Obama gave another speech yesterday concerning the national debt and, as you can expect, lots of stuff came out of his mouth without […]

Rulers Without Measure

The likelihood of Elena Kagan’s approval by the Senate is high, not because she’s qualified, but because she knows the right people, talks the right way and has the right mannerisms. While the people in Washington are often — and correctly — called “the ruling minority,” Angelo M. Codevilla with the American Spectator‘s latest issue […]

I am usually excited to read the latest Forbes magazine. Normally it is full of insight from experts in numerous fields.

Que Sarah, Sarah?

As you probably know, Sarah Palin stepped down from her office as Governor. She may have stepped down, but was that goodbye Sarah, Sarah? Many think not. Some suggested that she’s coming back, that her stepping down was so that she can rev up for more. And I wouldn’t be surprised, she doesn’t seem to […]
