Judson is upset this week about not being able advertisers for his new newspaper, The North Carolina Conservative. It’s not due to the fact that the newspaper is poorly written; it is due to the fact that he is, once again (*sigh*) a victim of Democrats. Just like when they "forced" him to leave his college because it was allowing … Read More
The rightwing douchebag pundit of the day award goes to Armstrong Williams: Seeking to build support among black families for its education reform law, the Bush administration paid a prominent black pundit $240,000 to promote the law on his nationally syndicated television show and to urge other black journalists to do the same. The campaign, part of an effort to … Read More
Every once in a while, a right-wingnut article comes along so ripe for editorial rape that it would be a crime to let it pass. Here is one such article, from a guy named Mike Thompson, a former chairman of the Florida Conservative Union. Take note of the disclaimer at the top — he doesn’t mean what he is saying, … Read More
Yes, she’s an easy target, but her Amazon Interview is too priceless to miss. Plus, it’s short. Let’s begin. Amazon.com: How important is this presidential election in the larger context of the Republic and its history? Ann Coulter: Insofar as the survival of the Republic is threatened by the election of John Kerry, I’d say 2004 is as big as … Read More
Do NOT miss out on this video of Jon Stewart on "Crossfire". It is clear that he appeared on Crossfire to make a serious point about how unhelpful the media is (and particularly, "Crossfire"). He’s right of course — shows like that often shed a lot of heat, and almost no light, on any given subject. Tucker Carlson lamely tries … Read More
TBogg was wondering why Ann Coulter in her column about the VP debates was so obsessed with John Edwards’ "girly hands". She referred to the supposed feminity of John Edwards’ hands several times. Was Ann Coulter secretly envious of Edwards’ "girlish" hands? Like TBogg, I’m betting so.
In this little essay (post, diatribe, whatever), I am going to write about the smear — the dirty black op of politics. The important thing to realize about a smear is that it is not a search for the truth. Rather, it is an attempt to create innuendo in order to muddy the truth. The goal isn’t to convince, but … Read More
. . . is now too screwy for Sean Hannity and World Net Daily. Time to show her the same door that Ann Coulter went through not too long ago.
. . . Oliver Willis’ site has the video of Michelle "Little Lulu" Malkin getting bitch-slapped by Chris Matthews. It’s wonderful to watch, on so many levels. She is unwilling to answer a simple question put to her . . . about whether or not SHE thinks Kerry shot himself on purpose. Of course, her TRUE answer is "Of course … Read More
Ann Coulter, the witty, vivacious HUMAN EVENTS columnist and best-selling author, was hired by USA Today to offer commentary about this week’s Democratic National Convention, but her first column was summarily rejected late last night. You can read all about it here, including the text of Ann’s column which was rejected (and USA Today’s editorial notes). But the most embarrassing … Read More
Jonah Goldberg at National Review Online shows what a total imbecile he is in this article. The nut says, in a nutshell, that the Geneva Convention is like a contract. And since al Qaeda didn’t sign the contract, the Geneva Convention doesn’t apply to them. Which means, he says, we should be able to torture AQ. Goldberg’s words: If you … Read More
Conservative-Except-When-It-Comes-To-Gay-Issues, Brit-American, and Bush-Excusing pundit Andrew Sullivan is getting more ornery these days . . . and about Iraq. Here’s what he recently wrote: Take the case of Specialist Sean Baker. He was permanently wounded by other U.S. soldiers in a simulated exercize [sic] where his fellow soldiers assumed he was an Iraqi or a terrorist. Here’s what happened: "They … Read More
Before I rant, a smattering of statistics: Number of USO tours done by Al Franken: 4Number of USO tours done by Rush Limbaugh: 0 Number of well-received USO tours done by Al Franken: 4Number of well-received USO tours done by Rush Limbaugh: 0 Just thought I would throw it out there.
