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

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

George Will and Erick Erickson predict near certain loss in the presidential election. George Will: “[T]here would come a point when… conservatives turn their energies to a goal  much more attainable than… electing Romney or Santorum president. It is the goal  of retaining control of the House and winning control of the Senate.. …

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…

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. As you will see in our video report from the scene, when Andrew Breitbart arrived at the Sears Centre, he…

I only spoke once with Andrew Breitbart. He reached out to me, and we spoke by phone.  The topic is not important, but I was shocked that he even knew who I was; but as I’ve come to learn, Andrew seemed to know who everyone was in the conservative blogosphere.  He…

When it mattered in the period between the South Carolina and Florida primaries, Drudge was all anti-Newt all the time, promoting falsehoods about Newt’s history with Ronald Reagan and assorted other Romney campaign themes. Now Drudge is being nice to Newt, with this banner linking to a post at HotAir about Newt…

If free health care costs so much, maybe it’s not free.  Just don’t tell it to the yutes. I’m guessing this is from a doc’s car.  From Linda, who e-mailed this photo with the subject line “nothing extra special …” About this sticker – except it’s continuing relevance.. Parking lot of Heritage Medical office building,…
