Obligatory: Rush apologizes for use of those words

Posted by  ▪  March 3, 2012
Rush Limbaugh posted this statement (h/t HotAir): For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week.  In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke. I think it…

Saturday Night Card Game (Repeat after me: “The Shirley Sherrod tape was not misleading”)

Posted by  ▪  March 3, 2012
With Andrew Breitbart’s death this week, one of the most persistent falsehoods has resurfaced, the claim that the original tape released of Shirley Sherrod’s speech to an NAACP Chapter was misleading or defamatory in that it did not reveal that Sherrod’s discrimination against a white farmer was long ago, that she ended up…

It’s all coming together this week, the absurdity of the entitlement state where everything must be subsidized: It works for me, GM laying off 1300 due to low Volt sales:
 

Food fight in the culture war

Tolerance.  The concept could be a bumper sticker. But if so, it would not be welcome on the campus of Northeastern University, which just banned Chick-fil-A from campus. From The Boston Glove via TaxProf (h/t Instapundit): Northeastern University said yesterday that a Chick-fil-A fast-food restaurant will not be coming to campus, after the college’s…

From previous photographer Zach: Wanted to send along another submission from the mountains of NC. I took these in the parking lot of the American Legion post in Hendersonville, NC. Thought the one was particularly relevant considering the Ted Kennedy reference and the prevalent excuse for the outbreak of grave dancing punditry…

The world has gone mad

Posted by  ▪  March 2, 2012
U.S. soldiers who accidentally burned Korans to be charged, ““For the soldiers, it will be serious — they could lose rank.” Feels like a good night for a White House document dump.  Yup, something in the air. Ted Kennedy too conservative for today’s Dem party?  Not sure, he did rent the whole thing…

How long until Obama says Georgetown is acting “stupidly”?

JWF has some background on the Georgetown Law student who is challenging Georgetown’s contraception policy.  She went to the law school knowing the university’s policy, and per JWF, intending to challenge it. Unfortunately, Rush walked into this one without seeing the set up, and now the student gets the obligatory call from…

So Close to Right

Posted by  ▪  March 2, 2012
An eighth grader in upstate New York has ruffled some feathers with an essay that casts the public school system as modern slavery. I wish I hadn’t clicked on the hyperlink, because – at face value - she seemed so right. Public schools discriminate based on geography under threat of imprisonment and their machine…

David Frum’s ghoulish attack on Breitbart

Posted by  ▪  March 2, 2012
Upon hearing of the death of Andrew Breitbart, Breitbart’s Twitter nemesis Eric Boehlert of Media Matters sent a respectful and classy tweet: Even Media Matters itself, with whom Breitbart sparred almost daily, issued a respectful statement: Media Matters has a long history with Andrew Breitbart. We’ve disagreed more than we’ve found common ground, but…

Man against the mob

Posted by  ▪  March 1, 2012
This is a classic. The story and a longer video are here. On Saturday, September 18th, Glenn Beck and Andrew Breitbart headlined an event entitled “Right Nation 2010,” held just outside of Chicago, Illinois.
