The video below correctly was termed “cringe-worthy” by Noah Rothman at Mediaite. The cringe-worthy part starts around the 2:30 mark when Melissa Harris-Perry asks the panel for their best race jokes.  (An edited down version is at Newsbusters if you don’t want to sit through it all.) Stop right there. From the “can you imagine…

It is really hard to be both a San Diegan and a blogger. Recently, our Chief of Police casually remarked that if lawmakers play it right, Americans can be completely disarmed within “a generation.” Now, the spokeswoman for the San Diego Sheriff’s Department rails against bloggers! This week the spokeswoman for the San Diego…

Banking Analyst: “Elizabeth Warren’s Preposterous Grandstanding”

Posted by

Thomas K. Brown, a banking industry analyst and investor, writing at BankStocks.com, makes a point similar to what I made in my post, Elizabeth Warren’s heroic Senate demagoguery, that Warren’s Banking Committee YouTube performance was pure political grandstanding without substance or legitimate regulatory purpose. As with her academic work analyzing bankruptcies, Warren took…

Wow.  Just…wow: For decades, hundreds of college players have gathered each year at the N.F.L.’s scouting combine, where their strength is tested, their speed is timed and, in a test to measure their intelligence, they are asked questions like “When a rope is selling 20 cents per 2 feet, how many feet…

The Republicans denounce the sequester as Mr. Obama’s brainchild (though they accepted it as p…
