I knew I shouldn’t have looked back. I have not read Jennifer Rubin in weeks. She has become so odious in her Romneyquest that reading her posts is like sipping poison; it doesn’t kill you but it makes you nauseated. Every time I read one of her insulting pieces it reminds me of the…

on what basis would sex-selective abortion be regulated? I previously highlighted the problem, When A Woman’s Right To Choose Results In Fewer Women – In The U.S. Via James Pethokoukis comes this article about the spread of sex-selective abortion in the U.S.,  Unwelcome import: Sex selective abortion: I’d read with dismay about people us…

The big headline for the past several days has been that an audio expert hired by The Orlando Sentinel, Thomas J. Owen, had concluded that the person screaming for help on the 911 tape when a neighbor called in was not George Zimmerman because voice biometric analysis of the scream could only find a 48%…

Somewhere. If so, and if there are results, at some point I’ll get around to it.  (As I’m writing, Romney wins big in MD)(and also, Wisconsin, now) In the meantime, some updates from prior topics (and maybe some new): Details on the plane crash which killed the founder of Neptunus Lex.  (original post)  And…

Piers Morgan interviewed crime writer Patricia Cornwell as to how critical forensics — such as bullet distance and trajectory — will be. Since no one, except perhaps the investigators, has that evidence so far, anyone who is speculating on what happend is just speculating. The transcript is here, and includes a segment with…

Ah, Facebook.  Via The Shark Tank: Jew hate is nothing new, but within the Democratic National Committee, this is clearly unchartered territory. DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s ol’ staffer and newly named the DNC’s Jewish Outreach Liason Dani Gilbert refers to herself an her fellow khevre (khev’∙reh) as “Jewbags.” Oy Veh! Can you…

The normally supportive commentariat is not happy, for a variety of reasons: My law school classmate Ruth Marcus, WaPo, Obama’s unsettling attack on the Supreme Court: “I would lament a ruling striking down the individual mandate, but I would not denounce it as conservative justices run amok.  Listening to the arguments and…

I will grant the Martin family enormous deference in the way they interact with the media.  They lost a child.  Whatever the facts of this case end up being, they lost a child.  Whatever the legal outcome ends ups being, they lost a child.  They are doing what parents are supposed to…

This article at the NY Post about Chris Christie’s visit to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem fairly is characterized as “one long fat joke.” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made a huge impression at Israel’s Western Wall yesterday during his first official overseas trip as head of the Garden State. Christie, wearing a yarmulke…

Aw, a bunch of unelected judges may have a different view of the Constitution than Barack Obama, and may overturn a law passed by Congress. That never has happened before. The thing is, those judges may not be elected, and may not have any divisions. But they have one thing, long memories: The other thing…

There are going to be a lot of people beclowning themselves in the rush to judgment to convict George Zimmerman before the facts are known. With every new piece of information, proclamations are made that the information destroys Zimmerman’s claim of self defense, only to have to walk back those proclamations or…

Ann Coulter’s fragging

Posted by
4/2/2012 at 2:10pm
Ann Coulter’s Romney-promoting long ago went far beyond Romney promoting, into cheap shots against the Tea Party movement and just about anyone who was not on Team Romney.  Much like the caustic Jennifer Rubin, insulting the people Romney will need to unite behind him seems to be Coulter’s schtick. My prior posts from this…

There’s pretty much doom and gloom all the time in the right blogosphere. Most of the bloggers I follow are having a hard time staying away from sharp objects as we glance towards November and the possibility of the teflon president tefloning his way towards a tefloned personal popularity by the tefloning mainstream…

Hollywood constantly has its thumb on the political scale. Whether it’s late night talk show hosts, SNL, or sitcoms, the political pressure always heads in one direction: Sunday’s episode of “Mad Men” — the popular drama about an ad agency in the 1960s — gave a nod to the current political scene, with…
