Back in the good old days when Barack Obama was only a candidate, I seem to recall his disparaging poor white peasants who were seeking to assuage their misery by clinging to religion and guns.
Flash forward to today when Obama's total inability to lead has put him in deep trouble… Read full post »
Obama Learns the “New” Math
Significant schadenfreudic pleasure can be derived from observing the reaction of Obama supporters to his latest capitulations relating to health care reform.
Hold on, his supporters say. He won the election (as he is prone to remind us), he h/… Read full post »
I'm not sure I ever respected Hillary Clinton more than when she dropped the facade and told a reporter what she thought of a question about what some man would think about a problem clearly in the lap of the Secretary of State. (The fact that due to translation difficulties, the… Read full post »
Michael Vick kills again!
At his press conference this morning, Michael Vick showed that his killing days are not over. The damage he did to the English language and to the cause of formulating thoughts into verbal expression that is remotely suggestive of human origin made his dog attack/… Read full post »
It is doubtful that O'Reilly will ever be able to top tonight's show.
Expose: Obama's lie about AARP support and the plant of a child of an Obama operative in the latest town meeting. Dick Morris joined in just for fun and to plug his new best-seller, which, along with O'Reilly's… Read full post »
I'm beginning to have a bit more faith in the latter.
Did I not read here recently that the heads of News Corporation and GE had reached some sort of cease fire in the cause of their mutual best interests?
Well, if they did, Bill O'Reilly certainly hasn't heard about it. … Read full post »
Many have characterized those who have attended recent public meetings designed to promote Obama’s plans to “reform” the country’s health care system as mercenaries enlisted to carry out a concerted Republican scheme to discredit and/or destroy Obama.&… Read full post »
The usual village idiots are now claiming that the reception Dems are getting at town meetings is not "spontaneous" but rather "manufactured."
The truth is clearly the former, but it's important that the audience not overplay its hand by being so vociverous as to limit the ability of the speake… Read full post »
It just shows to go you. If you publish an article which is so blatantly partisan, so psychotically motivated, and so downright stupid, it will attract attention.
For the first time, I've heard Salon mentioned on a major news media. Here I'm talking about Salon itself, not it… Read full post »
You would think that providing the occasion (dare I say stimulus?) for the leader of the free world to reveal himself as a trigger-happy fool would be enough for any teacher and cop, but apparently not. According to Crowley, he and the professor have planned future meetings in venues less augus… Read full post »
It is quite common to come across a movie or play wherein the long-suffering wife receives a last minute notice from hubbie canceling a planned vacation on the grounds that the husband "can't get away." Wives from Blondie to Lucy are told, in no uncertain terms, that the demands of e… Read full post »
I think I've figured out the true cause of OS hatred for Fox News, and it has nothing to do with politics or journalism. It's the unrelenting good looks of its women contributors. Their beauty frustrates the men who have to settle for so much less and it inflames the women… Read full post »
Obama Lives Up to What His Resume Promised
As unsettling as they have been, the first six months of the Obama presidency should surprise no one who carefully and impartially reviewed his qualifications for one of the most important jobs on the planet. The key features of that resume are a/… Read full post »
Obama's little speech on health reform was remarkable for several reasons:
No teleprompter; he read from notes. Looked better.
No reference to the CBO assessment which is putting a major spanner in the works by contradicting Obama's assumptions as to cost and savings.
No opportunity for questio… Read full post »
The Jackson Memorial
As the Dow steadily tumbled, a rather remarkable show was put on in Los Angeles’s Staples Center. Despite every promise of a mawkish group groan to commemorate the career of Michael Jackson, a group of true professionals presented an event which was, in the main/… Read full post »
Palin Unbound: How Palin’s Resignation Can Become the Best Thing For Her and for Her Country
Regardless of whether Sarah Palin has resigned in personal pique or in long-range presidential pursuit, the resignation has great positive potential for both her and for the United States.&n/…
The latest example of OS's and its favorite contributors' lack of grip on reality is the post of Sheriff Smith suggesting that GOPers are somehow lacking in political maturity.
How this accusation can be hurled in light of Obama and his totally jejeune administration boggles the mind. Obama is… Read full post »
The good governor of South Carolina should resign from all committee memberships, from all governorships, from all lodges, and from the local PTA, and then he should shut the fuck up!
If you put your pee-pee above your political responsibilities, you're toast. In my view, Clinton the great copu… Read full post »
The Relative Unimportance of Democracy
This week’s events in Iran focus attention on some fundamental issues relating to the hallowed concept of democracy. Those who are preoccupied with the legitimacy of the recent election there are, I believe, going off on an unproductive tangen/… Read full post »
We Need a Spokesperson for the Iranian Demonstrators
There’s lots of criticism about Obama’s reaction to the mess in today’s Iran. Too strong (Baby Bear), too tepid (Papa Bear), just right (Mama Bear).
Before deciding how to react to something, one needs to know wh… Read full post »
Obama’s Policies and Philosophy Are the Country’s Biggest Health Problem
Two key elements of Obama’s approach to social problems are redistribution of wealth and the related notion that society’s producers are to be targeted rather than treasured.
Both of these des… Read full post »
Female, Black, and/or Gay: So What!
There seems to be a growing trend to regard minority status, or alleged minority status, as some sort of claim to superiority or special treatment.
Let’s talk about only three: female, black, and gay.
