A modern miracle

Posted by  ▪  March 13, 2012
I asked for a good coffee mandate, and reader Liz delivered, with this photo and an e-mail with the suject line “The need for coffee”: And I think we need lots of it! The picture was taken on 3/8/2012 on I-94 westbound from Detroit. I think I was west of Ann Arbor by…

Pallywood never dies

Posted by  ▪  March 12, 2012
It just never stops, as reported by Israel Matzav, as this photo is going viral via Twitter but the child was hurt in an accident several years ago, not killed by Israelis, and for the kicker, it was circulated by a U.N. employee: More on Pallywood:  Another Pallywood hoax exposed, again.

Romney has trouble distinguishing “frontrunner” from “weak frontrunner”

Posted by  ▪  March 12, 2012
Mitt Romney is a weak frontrunner, anyone who thinks otherwise is not being realistic. But he is the frontrunner. Yet Romney seems not to be able to distinguish the two. And that is part of the reason why he is a “weak” frontrunner.

A Coffee mandate leaves me unsatisfied

Posted by  ▪  March 12, 2012
There’s a lot of talk today about imposing a coffee mandate on employers, including Mormon institutions which oppose the use of caffeine, because of the health benefits of coffee. Not enough. It must be a “good coffee” mandate. We have something here that’s free and they call “coffee,” but the lab tests have not…

The Derrick Bell thing has them worried

Posted by  ▪  March 12, 2012
The Breitbart video of Barack Obama embracing Prof. Derrick Bell, one of the founders of critical race theory, has been dismissed as a dud and failure. But the dialogue about how that narrative fits into Obama’s campaign tactics — something I explored on Day 2 of this blog — must have the Obama campaign…

Gawker more acceptable than conservative talk radio for advertisers?

Posted by  ▪  March 12, 2012
Gawker Media’s websites, particularly its flagship Gawker website, are notorious gossipers. Gawker in many ways is an equal opportunity attacker, but two of its highest profile stories were sexualized attacks against conservative female politicians. Wonkette, known for going after Michelle Malkin, Sarah Palin and other conservative women, was started by Gawker Media but spun…

Liberal seeds of doubt on Limbaugh boycott likelihood of success

Posted by  ▪  March 11, 2012
If you only read Media Matters and Think Progress, you’d think Rush Limbaugh was on the verge of losing his radio empire because 50 or more advertisers “dropped” him. While Limbaugh has lost some important advertisers, it appears that many of the advertisers dropping him never advertised in the first place, and…

The Trivialization of Joe Continues

Posted by  ▪  March 11, 2012
Joe the Plumber is back and this time he is fighting for keeps, a place in Congress. What can he expect this time from the main stream media? If the past is any guide, a pretty rough go and then some. Think of the Christine O’Donnell treatment on steroids. Joe is used…

Rick Santorum’s Higher Ed Crusade, cont.

Posted by  ▪  March 11, 2012
I’ve railed against the racket that higher education has become on this page before. I think more people should be able to abstain from going to college and I think the government should stop “helping” students. That being said, I also think Rick Santorum’s populist revulsion towards academia is based on faulty…

“No taxation without rubberization”

Posted by  ▪  March 11, 2012
Mark Steyn views the Fluke fiasco from Down Under: The brave middle-aged schoolgirl had the courage to stand up in public and demand that someone else pay for her sex life…. …. No taxation without rubberization, as the Minutemen said. The shot heard round the world, and all that…. No, the most basic issue here is…
