Here’s the chorus:

I want my bailout money
Sweet green cash just dripping with honey
Gotta keep this economy running
I need another hit of my bailout money

The Endive website has obtained a copy of a page from the stimulus plan in which Democrats in Congress hand wrote changes (photo). Dummies. They forgot to include bread. You just can’t trust Congress to do anything right.

Barney Frank has been on a rant over bonuses paid to bank executives. Frank asked one executive: “What is it you’d do differently if you didn’t get a bonus?”

Bank executives are easy targets given the current economic climate. But don’t think Frank and others like him will stop with the executives....

The New York Times is running a profile story on Eric Cantor, Republican congressman from Virginia, and House Minority Whip. By NY Times standards, this is a fairly soft piece; certainly not the hit job the Times has run on other Republicans. Nonetheless, the story should be taken as a first...

The day before the presidential election, when Barack Obama’s victory seemed all but certain, I predicted that I would be able to say “I told you so” about what lay ahead:

When this bubble bursts, I will be able to say “I told you so.” Unfortunately, by that point in time, the...

Good news. Israel opens the border crossing with Gaza — in between missile attacks from Hamas — to allow the export of tens of thousands of carnations. Wait a second, I thought Gaza was a wasteland on the verge of humanitarian catastrophe (along with the U.S.).

But of course, we can’t allow...

Not that McCain, The Other McCain, as witnessed by this post:

[Andrew Sargus] Klein gives us a splendid insight into the central conceit of the liberal mind: Nothing exists — or has existed, or ever will exist — unless it’s funded with federal taxpayer dollars.

Therefore, to oppose federal funding for “the...

The withdrawal of Judd Gregg as nominee for Commerce Secretary has revealed, once again, the nasty side of Barack Obama.

At his news conference, Gregg went out of his way not to criticize Obama, simply explaining that he could not give “110%” in service to Obama, and wishing Obama well. Gregg bent...

Hardly anyone reads Time magazine anymore. I say “anymore” for those people under the age of 40, who are too young to remember a day when Time represented the gold-standard of weekly news publications. If it weren’t for an occasional visit to a doctor’s waiting room, I’m not sure I’d know...

Now I know for sure what Congress and the Obama administration think of us. Reports indicate that the “compromise” stimulus bill will be $789,000,000,000. Why that number? Because it’s not $800,000,000,000. Whew, that makes me feel better. It’s not $800 billion. I’ll buy it.

Think I’m joking? Look at how AP reports...

We are witnessing the disrobing of the Obama aura in a spending-drenched feeding frenzy befitting hungry pigs at a wet, putrid trough. The fierce urgency of now has become the fierce urgency of sow.

Camille Paglia sums up these first three weeks of the Obama era:

The Democratic “stimulus” plan is packed full of all sorts of goodies. Just today, everyone is finding out that someone slipped in a provision to anoint a national health czar. Senator Arlen Specter, one of just three Republicans to support the bill, expressed surprise upon learning about this provision. How do...
