For weeks, Chris Matthews– along with the rest of the mainstream media– has been promoting the idea that the Arizona immigration bill is aimed at all Latinos. On “Hardball” Friday, while talking with turncoat Republican (the only good kind) governor Charlie Crist, Matthews revealed he suspects this of Republicans because that’s how he lumps people together.

Chris Matthews and Charlie Crist got so slobbery over each other Friday night that all reason and historical perspective was shed quicker than clothes in a parked car with Sam Cooke singing Don’t Know Much About History on the radio. CRIST: The 14th Amendment should stay the way it is …That’s the way it’s always been. [...]
Here is the way the Left lies. Take something that’s an only slight distortion, then build from there until the end result has no relation to the truth. Then, as the line goes from The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, reprint the legend, over and over and over.

Lately, conservatives have started to join that bandwagon, to show they are not reflexively against defense cuts. This is a mistake.
The pride and patriotism stirred by the Blue Angels pays [...]
Yesterday, John Guardiano’s post protesting Col. Ralph Peters’s supposed “cheap shots” at Petraeus, is far more personally pointed than anything Peters said on Bill O’Reilly’s program.
Col. Peters (who supported the “surge” in Iraq) is skeptical about nation building in Afghanistan, correctly pointing out that you can’t “rebuild” something that has never been built.
The key [...]
When I wrote movie reviews for about 15 years for a midsized (then) daily newspaper, I often heard the wisecrack, “I read reviews, then do the opposite of what they recommend.” The polite people would add, “Except for you, of course.”
Perhaps the best illustration of the gulf between popular and elite opinion was the 2008 [...]
