Historically, State of the Union speeches leave no trace. Their impact on presidential approval ratings is nil. Their utility, therefore, is in what they reflect about the presidential character and the presidential course. Last night President Obama gave a speech that was at times quite eloquent, and on occasion rhetorically empty. But at all times [...]
The attempted Christmas Day destruction over Detroit of Northwest Flight 253 by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is fading from public memory as a fortunate near-miss. This incident should not fade from view. As more information emerges, the picture it paints about the antiterror mindset of the current U.S. government is—there is no other word—scary. Last week [...]
If anyone would want to spin a new narrative and forget her past, it would be Bristol. Every story about her is marred by the taint of professional ne’er-do-well Levi. Who wouldn’t want to start fresh?

Oh, Hollywood! Never have so many been paid so much for so little worth. Their lack of rational thought astounds even me sometimes, and I have very low expectations. In fact, I propose a new term to replace the ickier bathroom version: Stone for Brains. Oliver Stone, that is, the man who never [...]
When I first read that Rush Limbaugh was in the hospital, I did a quick look at “tweets” with his name as keywords. What I found was a disgusting collection of death wishes. Of course, anytime a major figure might be staring death in the face there will always be a soulless group who wish [...]
Unbelievable. The state-run media have truly outdone themselves this time. National Public Radio’s editorial board apparently decided that completely alienating at least 55% of those who fund it by dehumanizing us was a smart move when they made a video called How to Speak Teabag. You just have to watch it to understand what an [...]
