Nothing quite like insulting our closest ally. Great job. Britain’s mistake was sacrificing its soldiers to help us in Iraq and Afghanistan. Gordy should have seen it coming once Obama sent back the statue of Winston Churchill. If Gordy wanted the red carpet treatment, he should have spent more time bad...

David Brooks, columnist at the New York Times, announces that “Barack Obama is not who we thought he was.” Thanks for nothing, Mr. Brooks. You cheered Obama into office along with all the other enlightened “moderates” and now you tell us this:

I saw a reference at Brian Leiter’s Law Report blog touting an article that might be “perhaps the best thing to happen to law schools since U.S. News?” Others are citing this potentially ground-breaking piece, including the Wall Street Journal law page, and the TaxProf Blog.

Proof Obama’s Fear Mongering Hurts The Economy

Obama’s fear mongering is well documented. Crisis, catastrophe, “since the Great Depression” and similar terminology are part of the plan to push through Obama’s agenda. But do the words cause economic harm, or are the words merely a reflection of a declining economy? In other words, which came first, the economic...

What is it with this President? Obama has an obsessive need to find enemies against whom to campaign. When Obama’s presidency is over, hopefully in four years (but likely eight years) there will be two sets of psychologists: Those who provide therapy to the American population which has seen its life...

A delegation of Hollywood stars, headed by Annette Bening, is traveling to Iran to open a dialogue on behalf of the Obama administration:

Thirty-eight years ago, a ping pong team sent by US president Richard Nixon to Beijing opened the door to Communist China. February 27, 2009, president Barack Obama launched...

The internet is abuzz with photos of Pork Brains In Milk Gravy, allegedly the “worst food product ever.” I beg to differ with these pundits, who obviously have not heard of The Testicle Cookbook: Cooking With Balls, by Serbian chef Ljubomir R. Erovic, who dedicates the book:

An article at American Thinker lays out a chart showing how Obama won the election by overwhelming Republicans. The author compares Republicans to Ethiopian spear-carriers who, under an onslaught by Italian mechanized troops, didn’t know what hit them. I like the analogy, but I don’t like the chart:

An Obama spokesman has just announced that the likely “downpayment” on Obama’s plan to expand health insurance coverage over the next decade will exceed $1 trillion. That’s above and beyond what presently is paid through medicare and medicaid.
