A Fart Joke for the Soul’s Refinement

I think the fart joke as art needs to be brought back into the mainstream.


Derb on the Future

Derbyshire depresses me.


Elena Kagan Nominated for SCOTUS

Obama has chosen for his nominee one Elena Kagan, Solicitor General. An academic and a Clinton-era flack with precisely zero judicial experience and only a dash of real world legal experience on her resume, she has been working in government for most of her adult life.

Of course, in Washington that is not a black mark on the résumé.


Peggy Noonan on Conservatism

Lopez: What is a conservative? Noonan: Thank you for asking. I think this is something we should talk about more, and something I would urge NR to address with a greater force or breadth. Bill Buckley and his hardy band — James Burnham, Jeffrey Hart, etc. — brought to their task a certain missionary zeal.… Continue reading »


The Rally

I attended the rally this morning and was happy to see it packed to the rafters.  In fact, today is double awesome because I sent an e-mail to NRO and — it must be a slow day — the editor posted it on the site. Just returned from the McCain-Palin rally in Virginia Beach.  It… Continue reading »


VDH on Sarah P. via NRO

Recently, for example, in an exclusive interview with… Continue reading »

Actually, I've contracted out the services of one Charles Krauthammer for this blog, since I am confident that he is miles beyond me in terms of firsthand knowledge of the subject matter in the Gibson-Palin interview.  Taken from National Review Online. I will, upon viewing the rest of the interview, offer my own thoughts.  But this… Continue reading »


More Sarah Palin Defense…Sadly Still Necessary!

Sarah Palin was accused of many things over the week.  One of the less obscene was the notion that she, a prolifer openly opposed to abortion, had hypocritically cut funding for pregnant teens.  As it turns out, that was true!  Sort of.  As always, a partial truth is more damaging than a total lie.  For… Continue reading »


Criticize Obama! When Will All This Racism Cease?

In a recent article on National Review Online, Das Krauthammer strikes Obama full in the face with the flail of righteous consternation: Obama cited Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman as presidents who met with enemies. Does he know no history? Neither Roosevelt nor Truman ever met with any of the leaders of the Axis powers.… Continue reading »
