Coakley's Desperate Low Blow

Coakley’s Desperate Low Blow


Probably better than anyone, Reverend Jeremiah Wright captured the dynamics of what’s been going on with the U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts during the past few weeks. Remember the “Right” Reverend’s clownish imitation of Hillary Clin… Read full post »

The Election in Massachusetts Is Over

Moot in Massachusetts 


Definition of anticlimax:  the result of the January 19 election in Massachusetts for the successor to Ted Kennedy in the United States Senate.


The keeper of the Kennedy flame, Martha Coakley, with a spectacular display of political clumsiness, has manage… Read full post »

Obama's Unhappy New Year

Obama’s Unhappy New Year


It was the worst of times; it was the worst of times.


The fallout from the saga of the Boxers Rebellion on Christmas Day hardly requires elaboration. Obama and his happy band of incompetents changing their respective, if not respectable, stories on an almost… Read full post »

Why Do Liberals Hate Bill O'Reilly?

Why Do Liberals Hate Bill O’Reilly?


Bill O’Reilly is often a rude bully.  On the other hand, he’s clearly more intelligent and nuanced than that automaton, Sean Hannity, and he’s clearly more moderate than that lachrymose loudmouth, Glenn Beck. Indeed, on most issue/… Read full post »

Janet Napolitano: Weak or Missing Link?

Janet Napolitano:  Weak or Missing Link?


Although it is tempting to conclude that Napolitano’s apparently inconsistent statements regarding the Christmas terrorist attack mark yet another disastrous performance in her short career as the country’s Secretary of Homeland Security… Read full post »

Obama-Hei: Necktie or Lei

In a few minutes, President Obama is to address the nation about the Delta terrorist attack and, perhaps, the violence in Iran.  As usual, he is reacting to crises rather than anticipating them.

Janet's trial balloon makes it highly unlikely that he will try to defend to any extent the current… Read full post »

The Delta Attack: Dumb and Dumber

The Delta Attack:  Dumb and Dumber


Let’s face it:  our latest terrorist is not the brightest bulb on the block.  Even with the unintended assistance of an incredibly slothful security system, he managed to make noises only slightly more frightening than a bowl of Rice Krisp/… Read full post »

Alan Grayson Lives!

Among the more amusing sights on this site during 2009 was the glorification of one Alan Grayson, a representative from Florida, who made a big splash excoriating congressional conservatives on the subject of health care. The fact that Grayson was subsequently forced to express regret over his rabid… Read full post »

Doing Nothing Is Not an Option

Doing Nothing Is Not an Option.  Really?  How about when 57% of Americans prefer that non-option over turning medical care over to the government?

How about when an even greater percentage of Americans disapprove of Congress generally?

The dirty deals that have characterized this week's leg… Read full post »

Beck and O'Reilly: Partners in Crime?

Something very strange happened this week concerning the critical vote of Ben Nelson on the Senate healthcare legislation.

 With his typical hysteria, Glenn Beck announced on his December 16 Fox News telecast that after receiving the information from three sources, he was obliged to report thatRead full post »

Obama in Oslo: Wising Up or More Waffling?

Obama's acceptance speech in Oslo strongly suggests that he is finally getting a grip on the dynamics of the world scene and the Islamic threat that dominates it.  Most significantly, he seems to realize, finally, that the key to achieving national fervor at home is to tap into the outrage that… Read full post »

Obama at West Point

As Obama droned on in his bloodless academic style—the watching-a-tennis match-from-the-net eye directions, the irritatingly predictable voice drops at the end of each sentence—the nation and the world got a pretty good measure of the man who not only would be president, but who actually… Read full post »

Obama: A Case Study in Indecisiveness


Obama:  A Case Study in Indecisiveness


It is axiomatic that a candidate’s challenge is to muddle for the middle so that the requisite votes can be obtained for a victory.  Being all things to all people generally works in a political campaign.


But having come… Read full post »

One Turkey Pardons Another

I wouldn't be as forgiving of what Obama is doing to this country.  I guess the real turkey is a Democrat.

I received only spotty reports of what went down with "Uncle" Tom Turkey, but I got the impression that the Obama pardon was being attributed to his daughters' aversion to… Read full post »

Obama Bends Again

Among all the socialist advisors to the President, can't he find someone who knows something about protocols to be followed when meeting foreign figures? 

 We know that Obama on his own hasn't a clue about these things.  Why should he?  It's not a big issue at Harvard Law School,… Read full post »

Thank God Obama Is So Deliberative

Following in the ample footprints of the lady in New York 23, Abdullah ditto is withdrawing from the approaching run-off election in Afghanistan.  If I remember correctly, this election is the very same as that identified by no fewer than two Obama henchmen as the event that required resolution… Read full post »

Obama--Our New Captain Queeg?

Obama's vacillation on the pressing issue of troop levels in Afghanistan and a host of other issues where he has betrayed campaign promises and avoided important decisions in favor of pursuing photo ops and other self-aggrandizing occasions raises the issue of whether ou… Read full post »

Scozzafava's Heroic Sacrifice

In an earthshattering political move, yet to be reported on S or OS (hmm), Diedre Scozzafava has terminated her campaign for House representative for the 23rd Congressional District in New York State.

 This is a really WOW moment, for only two days ago, Ms. Scozzafava and her Democratic opponent… Read full post »

Gay Pride--Legitimate or Undeserved?

The Myths of Gay, Female, and Black Pride


There is certainly no shortage of oppressed minorities in contemporary American life—gays, women, and blacks are certainly high on the list.


Each minority has had its champions, persons who have courageously and notoriously fought for ration… Read full post »

Joe Lieberman--My Hero

From the beginning of the last, or at least most recent, presidential campaign  (after all, even a klutz like Obama can't halt the ongoing electoral process--indeed, his cowardly clumsiness makes its future workings especially critical to the health of this country), I thought that McCain a… Read full post »

Obama: What Kind of Fool Am I?

Obama:  What Kind of Fool Am I?


Today’s broadcast of Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, son of the very liberal and iconic Mike Wallace I believe, demonstrated just how ludicrous is the claim by Obama and his advisors that Fox is not a real news network.


After an in-depth inte… Read full post »

Leibovitz is overrated. A much less lauded photog would have asked the President to put on a jacket for Christ's sake and would have more cleverly balanced the whites, blacks, and greys to avoid a pictorial display that is a virtual metaphor for segregation. Also, it's so clutchy as to be… Read full post »

Obama gets recommendations from his generals as to how to avoid failure in achieving the Afghanistan objectives Obama himself set months earlier.  He asks for it to be kept under wraps for awhile so he can think it over.  To explain the unexplainable, Rahm Emanuel and John Kerry announce "s… Read full post »
