Did I say “massive fail”? Isn’t this like a horse designed by a committee?

There have been some pretty awful Olympic mascots, but these have to be the worst, androgynous one-eyed freaks of nature.

You be the judge of the design of Wenlock andMandeville:

The bullying by Congressional committees of various unpopular industries has taken on warp speed.

But in a very disturbing new tactic, Congressional Democrats specifically are targeting a sponsor of conservative media shows, particularly the Glenn Beck Show, on a flimsy pretext:

I was waiting for this ruling, because I could not stand living in a world where it was illegal to wear baggy pants so low that your ass showed.

The lesson being learned by the left-wing blogosphere from the sputtering Glenn Beck boycott and the Van Jones Affair is not that political arguments should be won on the merits, and in the hearts and minds of the public.

No, the lesson being learned is that Democrats and the nutroots do not...

I told you this was coming. Two weeks ago I predicted that when Glenn Beck returned from vacation, he would go on the offensive against Van Jones and the others behind the boycott of Beck’s Fox News show.

A group called Color of Change is putting pressure on advertisers to stop running ads on the Glenn Beck show on Fox News because Glenn Beck said mean things about Barack Obama. Apparently several advertisers, including Geico, Sargento Cheese, and others, have succumbed to the fear.
