Video Update: Israel’s Mishandling Of The Flotilla Confrontation

May 31, 2010
By

Update: Video added below via here. Liberty Pundits has more – see sidebar for posts. Lest anyone think this was Israel's fault.

As an ally, I wish Israel would become more sensitive to America's domestic politics. They could have gone a long way to improve relations, particularly with Obama, with the flotilla...

Will “Blogger” Become A Bad Name?

May 31, 2010
By

A relevant few insights related to this Matt Lewis item. I know for a fact that Palin has a positive view of what bloggers can do when they're interested in accuracy. And she did also hire individuals associated with C4P to officially join her team. So some quotes from her are more...

Captain Arab Meets Whale, Whale Wins

May 31, 2010
By

This is not a new story. And as Powerline points out, it's desire is public relations, not the delivery of supplies to Gaza.

Near the end of his Personal Memoirs, Ulysses Grant paid tribute to the courage of Confederate soldiers, but concluded that "men never fought in a worse...

Byron York On Erick Erickson

May 31, 2010
By

I have a great deal of respect for Byron York. He's been doing great work at The Examiner. And while I appreciate his perspective on this, I think he's being overly harsh, perhaps as a result of a somewhat mainstream media view. That, opposed to a blogger's view.

Why write something he...

Memorial Day Weekend

May 30, 2010
By

The Rolling Thunder motorcycle ride was today.

Somewhat in honor of that, Joan re-visits a childhood of bikinis and bikers. Hey, I saw that movie!

Every summer a group of bikers would descend upon the park for a weekend. My little Catholic girl/river-rat self regarded them with equal parts pious umbrage and redneck...

Obama’s Next Book: The Audacity Of Government Incompetence And Corruption

May 30, 2010
By

Clicking around this AM, it was interesting hearing former Shell Oil president John Hofmeister on CNN talk about why we're forced to drill for oil in deep water. Thank you big government and environmentalists. A little prudent judgment on energy would have made this entire catastrophe unnecessary, or at least easily resolvable in a timely...

Will 40 Days And Nights Of Oil Drown The Left’s Self-Professed Messiah?

May 30, 2010
By

Who says the bible isn't relevant today? Via The Telegraph. I wonder which grandchild of Noah walked in while he was shaving and asked, Grandaddy, have you plugged the hole, yet? Can you say false prophet? I knew that you could!

It was perhaps a fitting end to one of the worst...

CA Palin Investigation Comes Up Empty, But Brown Still Wasting Time And Money On It

May 30, 2010
By

There seems to be a lot of time and money wasting by would be prosecutors these days, especially in California.

Remember when Leland Yee called for an investigation into a Palin speaking arrangement at CSU-Stanislaus, then AG Brown took it up, obviously for political purposes? Well, Brown is continuing his investigation, despite the...

Frank Rich Has An Oil Stain In His Underpants

May 30, 2010
By

Frank Rich is crapping his pants over the oil spill and the result is as unsightly as one might expect. It may be the mother of all of his many progressive hash marks. But while doing everything he can to knock down Bush, conservatives and even Libertarians like Rand Paul, he also reveals...

WH: Carville Doesn’t Understand, As Obama Plays Basketball

May 29, 2010
By

Oh yeah, this is getting good. Obama is cracking wise and headed off to vacation and play some hoops. Meanwhile, that snake-headed hick from LA just doesn't get it. Now, maybe Carville backs down. But the so-called moderate wing of their party is no happier with this WH, than is the...

"'Oh my,' McCain laughs, his voice dripping with jest," in a
refreshingly candid NRO interview that suggests Sarah Palin is now in the driver's seat and her
former running mate in the passenger seat of the jerry-built...

Obama Certainly Has A Lot Of Balls

May 29, 2010
By

Tar balls are funny to Obama, golf balls more important than state funerals, now today it's round ball. For an increasingly incompetent chief exec, Obama sure has a lot of balls. At least he isn't off fund raising for a change.

CHICAGO (AP) — President Barack Obama has begun his hometown holiday weekend by playing...

Did Clinton/Sestak Call Last Two Months?

May 29, 2010
By

h/t JB in email. I recall that Clinton can talk forever, given his first Democrat convention address. But for Clinton to be the be all and end all of the Sestak job offer, his one phone call would have had to last for two months. I suspect that's too much talking,...

Daddy, Did You Plug Your Pie Hole With Tar Balls?

Is Obama a BP bagger?

Yes, it is sad and serious, though I'm more concerned for the impacted lives, than America's wetlands. While tragic, they will survive and replenish themselves. Nature is ultimately more resilent, than are individual lives.

But we mustn't let that stop us from making jokes, apparently. Typical uncaring and...

Will Folks’ History Of Abusing Women

May 29, 2010
By

While this situation doesn't warrant a lawsuit, discovery can be a bitch. That may be especially true for someone like Will Folks, whose blog leaves the impression that women are no better than biatches to be objectified, ogled and perhaps even abused.

A week after Folks was arrested, he denied accusations that he...

Clinton: Unions Use And Manipulate Voters

May 28, 2010

Hey, don't look at me – Bill Clinton said it. Maybe it would have been better if he had gone there to offer Halter a job to save Lincoln, instead? We know he has experience in that regard.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Former President Bill Clinton on Friday urged voters in his home...

Redstate: Letting The Chips Fall Where They May

May 28, 2010
By

Given some comments I've seen, I was thinking of posting a defense of Erick at Redstate, who I also criticized - before waiting to see which way the wind was blowing, btw. Hey, it ain't easy out here. We all screw up at times.

And since some pseudonymous blogger aka Meghan McCain's third boob has...

Redstate Updates Haley Story

May 28, 2010
By

Redstate updates with more on the Nikki Haley story, or non-story. Unfortunately, we don't know for certain, which is what scumbag Will Folks seems to want. Also, see Stacy here.

With apologies to RedState readers (and Dan Riehl who is rather upset about the whole post from this morning), I’ve had no...

Prosecutor Fired For Tea Party Speech: Wanted To Be The Next Sarah Palin?

May 28, 2010
By

Oh, no political motivation here. Stay till the end of the video when the State Attorney says he'd love to have his old assistant back, the one "before she decided she wanted to be the next Sarah Palin." So, how does her speaking to a group put the state's interest in...
