Dede Scazzafava’s decision to drop out of the NY-23 race has evoked a round of name-calling and fear-mongering from the left-wing blogosphere not seen since … Wednesday when the left-wing blogosphere shouted “you lie” at Joe Lieberman and called Lieberman a traitor:

President Obama made a trip to Dover Air Force Base to be present when the coffins of troops and DEA agents were returned from Afghanistan.

I have no problem with it.

One thing I’ve learned in life is that everyone mourns in his or her own way.

Chicago Comes to Honduras

The Obama administration finally got its first foreign policy victory, in Honduras. But it appears to be merely symbolic, with Chicago-style bullying still going on in the background to force Honduras to allow Manuel Zelaya back into power.

The government of Honduras has agreed — subject to conditions —...

The Congressional Budget Office has released its “scoring” of the House health care restructuring bill.

The crowning achievement of Barack Obama’s negotiation without precondition strategy on Iran was Iran’s alleged agreement to ship its uranium abroad for reprocessing. This supposed agreement — which was never as significant as it seemed — was touted as proof that Obama’s approach was correct.

Popular left-wing blogger and supposed Iran-guru Juan...

The drafters and supporters of the 1,990-page health care restructuring bill released by Nancy Pelosi this morning really don’t understand how business works.

I’ve had only a few minutes to look at the bill, but one fundamental and profound stupidity jumped out at me.

The bill defines which businesses are subject to the...

I’m watching Nancy Pelosi’s press conference announcing the final House Democratic health restructuring bill. It’s 1990 pages.

We’ll see what the bill really says once we have time to analyze it, but here’s what we know from prior versions, news reports, and Pelosi’s talking points. The plan is phony and false political...

My home state of Rhode Island is quirky place. We still celebrate Victory Over Japan Day in August, although the name was changed to VJ Day and then to Victory Day, in a nod to political correctness. Now there is a move afoot to change the name of the state for...

Shocked To Find Stimulus Jobs Overstated

Yet another “shocked to find gambling in Casablanca” moment. This time, the AP — yes the AP! — checked claims of jobs “created or saved” by stimulus bill spending, and found that the number of jobs was overstated by a factor of 1 in 6:

But the 30,000 figure is overstated by...

Alternative headline: “Obama Critic Says It’s Gone Too Far.”

Let Obama play hoops and hit the links with the guys. Exactly which high-powered woman is he supposed to set a pick for, box out, or look the other way when she uses the foot wedge? Hillary? Maureen Dowd? Janet Napolitano?

Harry Reid held a press conference Monday pushing an “opt out” public option knowing full well he did not have the Democratic votes to break a filibuster.
