Democrats are tripping over the conspiracy theory that Barack Obama was not born in Hawaii and that there is a cover-up by Hawaiian state officials, among others, who falsely have issued a “certificate of live birth.” On the one hand, Democrats and supportive blogs push the issue to the hilt to...

One of the joys of blogging under your real name is getting e-mails like this:

The meeting at the White House yesterday between Barack Obama, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and James Crowley (with Joe Biden as the fourth wheel) has been dubbed the “Beer Summit.” Perhaps a better name would be the Thanksgiving Summit (emphasis mine):

Freddie Med. Never has a phrase better summed up the danger of Democratic plans to have the federal government run the health care system.

Blogger and media professor Jeff Cohen argues at HuffPo that the reason Obama’s health care plans are failing is that the liberal netroots are not pushing hard enough for a full-blown, nationalized, “single-payer,” “one nation, one plan” style medical system:

Obama Hits The Wall

A Democratic pollster is quoted as saying that “this is a president who needs a vacation.” Obama is making a big push on everything all the time, but the polls are moving against him.

If Obama were an endurance cyclist, we’d say he was bonking or hitting the wall. Anyone who has...

Will Newsweek ever stop trying to get attention by declaring things coming to an end?

First it was the end of Christian America. Then the end of the recession. Now the end of monogamy as the basis for socially acceptable relationships, in a lead article captioned:

“Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun,” so said Noel Coward.*

You know the Democrats are sensing a loss of momentum, and increasing resistance to their plans to ram through changes the American people do not want, because they have brought out the big smear that opposition to Barack Obama is racist.

The most pathetic is TPM, in its post Obama-Haters Becoming...
