1) When elephants crash land Recently, I brought up an example of how Professor Barry Rubin handled a mistake. First he admitted it. Then he explained the forces involved. His behavior showed a few things. 1) He is serious about what he has written. 2) He respects his audience’s intelligence. Neither of these qualities can…

Mia Love rocketed to stardom in 2012. When she was featured here on January 9, 2012, almost no one had heard of her and she was given almost no chance of winning the Republican nomination. With the help of the conservative blogosphere, including many of the larger blogs like Hot Air and Instapundit,…

From The NY Post, ‘Linen King’ could get three years for illegal gun: Prosecutors today said they will recommend no less than a three-year sentence for Bardwil — owner of Bardwil Home, the country’s biggest table-linen company — for possessing an illegal gun in his E. 51st Street apartment in January. Bardwil is…

Some myths live on regardless of the facts, and when it comes to Sarah Palin, they live on with a fury. Palin’s speech at CPAC today set off a tirade by a film critic for New York Magazine Bilge Ebiri: If Sarah Palin didn’t exist, some sick, sadistic fuck would have had to…

Saturday Night Card Game (“Big Boy” says “boy” and race card players go wild)

And now I rise to the defense of one Christopher James Christie: George W. Bush nicknamed him “Big Boy.” This dust-up is so stupid and pathetic it makes my head hurt. You see, when you call a black man a “boy” it’s a racial pejorative. When you merely use the term “boy” as an…

Everything that’s wrong with the corruptocracy known as Los Angeles is contained in this L.A. Times report about the departure of Tim Leiweke as head of Anschutz Entertainment Group—and there’s little doubt, given how the details were spaced out in the 1,000-word story, that reporters David Zahniser and Kate Linthicum didn’t…

Sarah Palin takes CPAC by storm

Posted by
3/16/2013 at 2:06pm
Just yesterday the dimwits at Politico were writing her off in their usual demeaning terms. I don’t expect she’ll be a candidate again, but today she took CPAC by storm, playing an important role outside the Republican Party structure in saying what needs to be said and motivating an important part of…

The sick BDS movement, Leftist-Islamist coalition, and anti-Israel academic movement are frequent topics here. There is good news — despite all the hoopla and vitriol, these miscreants have made no progress with American public opinion. Via Times of Israel: Americans’ sympathy for Israel is at a 22-year high, according to Gallup figures released on Friday,…

The Obama Administration puts up a forest of shiny objects that can make important developments hard to see. While  Obama’s Press Secretary Jay Carney stresses over who-did-what on the cancellation of White House tours, conservative firebrand Tammy Bruce has been sounding the alarm on some developments in Asia that may have far…

Wild stuff going on: BREAKING: Obama White House Describes West Bank as Part of Israel, yeah, you know, that place where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.  Money line: “The Dead Sea Scrolls, one might say, are written by settlers.” Most pretentious and self-unaware statement ever (okay, maybe not ever, but when you…

I have been covering California’s hate-late relationship with gun rights. The reports have included the fact that gun control groups have target our state for enhanced activism, and that San Diego’s Chief of Police has stated that Americans can be disarmed in a generation. Now, it seems some of our citizens have been…

I should have gone away these few days of the CPAC conference in a deep sea diving bell.  CPAC has been a disappointing spectacle to watch from afar, in more than one way. I can’t tell you what it’s done for others, but for me it’s been a real downer, notwithstanding a few good speeches.  I…
