Posted by  ▪  April 3, 2012
Ah, Facebook.  Via The Shark Tank: Jew hate is nothing new, but within the Democratic National Committee, this is clearly unchartered territory. DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s ol’ staffer and newly named the DNC’s Jewish Outreach Liason Dani Gilbert refers to herself an her fellow khevre (khev’∙reh) as “Jewbags.” Oy Veh! Can you…

Obamaworries

Posted by  ▪  April 3, 2012
The normally supportive commentariat is not happy, for a variety of reasons: My law school classmate Ruth Marcus, WaPo, Obama’s unsettling attack on the Supreme Court: “I would lament a ruling striking down the individual mandate, but I would not denounce it as conservative justices run amok.  Listening to the arguments and…

From seeking justice to obstruction of justice

Posted by  ▪  April 3, 2012
I will grant the Martin family enormous deference in the way they interact with the media.  They lost a child.  Whatever the facts of this case end up being, they lost a child.  Whatever the legal outcome ends ups being, they lost a child.  They are doing what parents are supposed to…

NY Post outdoes even itself

Posted by  ▪  April 3, 2012
This article at the NY Post about Chris Christie’s visit to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem fairly is characterized as “one long fat joke.” New Jersey Gov.

In all other elections we just vote. In this election we vote bitterly. From reader Carroll, spotted in Tucson the other day:
 

Hey Obama, know what else those unelected judges have?

Posted by  ▪  April 2, 2012
Aw, a bunch of unelected judges may have a different view of the Constitution than Barack Obama, and may overturn a law passed by Congress. That never has happened before. The thing is, those judges may not be elected, and may not have any divisions. But they have one thing, long memories: The other thing…

Noted photo-analyst blogger now just seeing what he wants to see

Posted by  ▪  April 2, 2012
There are going to be a lot of people beclowning themselves in the rush to judgment to convict George Zimmerman before the facts are known. With every new piece of information, proclamations are made that the information destroys Zimmerman’s claim of self defense, only to have to walk back those proclamations or…

Ann Coulter’s fragging

Posted by  ▪  April 2, 2012
Ann Coulter’s Romney-promoting long ago went far beyond Romney promoting, into cheap shots against the Tea Party movement and just about anyone who was not on Team Romney.  Much like the caustic Jennifer Rubin, insulting the people Romney will need to unite behind him seems to be Coulter’s schtick. My prior posts from this…

Are we really doing that well?

Posted by  ▪  April 2, 2012

Not equal opportunity mockers

Posted by  ▪  April 2, 2012
Hollywood constantly has its thumb on the political scale. Whether it’s late night talk show hosts, SNL, or sitcoms, the political pressure always heads in one direction: Sunday’s episode of “Mad Men” — the popular drama about an ad agency in the 1960s — gave a nod to the current political scene, with…

How easily the public is manipulated

Posted by  ▪  April 1, 2012
How sad is it for us as a society that Al Sharpton, of the Tawana Brawley hoax and Crown Heights/Freddy’s Fashion Mart riots, is leading protests calling for civil disobediance if George Zimmerman is not arrested immediately (and then will call for civil disobedience if the charges are not serious enough, or…
