This is a follow up to my earlier post about the findings by a social psychlogist that there is a “statistically impossible” skew in the percentages of social psychologists who self-identify as liberal and conservative, reflecting a pervasive bias against conservatives throughout the social sciences.

Paul Krugman helps us out in understanding...

Robert Gibbs will be leaving the White House soon to carry on his buffoonery elsewhere(ish). But, before he leaves, take a moment to watch this video from Politico that lists everything he isn’t. Take a moment to appreciate that he was Barack Obama’s communications chief during...

I found two great pieces on the State of the Union address last night (I read the leaked version but didn’t bother finding a TV to watch):

State of the Union speeches are typically unimpressive and unmemorable. Last night’s address by President Obama was in that tradition. While his delivery was...

Peter Thiel has been making a splash lately by calling higher education “the next bubble.” In a fairly recent Wall Street Journal article, he went as far as to say “Liberals […] blame our education system, but liberals are the last ones to fix it, just wanting to throw money [at...

Ed Koch, former Mayor of New York City, has come to the defense of Sarah Palin regarding her use of the term “blood libel” to describe the malicious and false accusations that Palin’s electoral target map contributed to the Tucson shootings (emphasis mine):

This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:

I confess to not knowing who Herman Cain was until the other day, when he announced he was forming a presidential exploratory committee.  I had heard his name, but I didn’t know anything about him. ...

The nation’s “debt ceiling” will need to be raised early in the next Congress to accomodate the new reality of trillion-dollar-plus annual deficits.

The possibility that the Republican House will refuse to raise the debt ceiling is the favorite topic of discussion in the media and by the Obama administration.  There seems...

Charles Krauthammer has lambasted the mainstream (i.e. liberal) media for its obsession with Sarah Palin.

That goes double for liberal entertainers and academics, and triple for the left-blogosphere, which is nuts-in-the-head (that’s a precise medical term in A...

Although Obama signed the Treaty...

I posted earlier about how left-wing bloggers deliberately misrepresented a statement issued by Eric Cantor’s office about a meeting Cantor had with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. 

Glenn Greenwald accused Cantor of pledging allegiance to Israel over the U.S., and Greenwald’s accusations were amplified with accusations by other left-wingers that Cantor...

The Daily Beast and Newsweek are getting married.  How fitting.  The epitome of the new-age left-wing journals which masquerades as quasi-news organization is acquiring (let’s not kid around that it really is a merger of equals) with the dinosaur of left-wing opinion journals which — at least for the past decade...
