Just a reminder that The Command Post will be opening its chat room tonight at 8:45pm. I will try to stop by, but my 4-year-old is wired and I may be away from the TV and computer, ensconced in a princess castle loft bed reading Junie B. Jones, during much of the debate. CNET has […]
CBS News isn’t the only one failing to disclose the political activism of purportedly ordinary Americans fearful of the return of a draft. NBC News has its own Beverly Cocco. His name is Jeremy Tor. Here’s the full transcript of the draft-mongering segment that ran on NBC Nightly News last night: TOM BROKAW, anchor: One […]
I always wondered what people were talking about when they praised Cameron Diaz’s comedic skills. Now, I get it. The goofy actress was hysterical on Oprah yesterday! Laura Ingraham read Cam’s comments on her radio show this morning and Drudge posted a transcript excerpt this afternoon: Ms. DIAZ: We have a voice now, and we’re […]
Bill at INDC Journal, pit-bull blogger extraordinaire who nabbed interviews with CBS News staffers over their scare-mongering draft story, is all over this. Check his blog for frequent updates if you haven’t already. Jeff at Protein Wisdom adds more here.
The media cheerleading here in the D.C. area over the Expos deal is nauseating. I have nothing against baseball. I have everything against taxpayer-funded sports statism. (A commendable exception to the media slavering over this government rip-off is the Washington Times, whose scathing editorial today is dead-on.) Way back before I knew what a blog […]
Meet Peter Darling.
My pre-debate column is here. Snippet: This isn’t a race for prom king or “Jeopardy!” champion. It’s a race for leader of the free world. For other perspectives before tomorrow’s big event, see Keith Burgess-Jackson on style/substance. He also has interesting thoughts on liberal frustration. David Limbaugh dissects Kerry’s unlikeability and examines Al Gore’s advice […]
The Post wins hands down. Update: Ace of Spades, one of my must-reads every day, has much more on the Times’s reporter Philip Shenon. Unbelievable.
There they go again.
John Fund’s new book, Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy, just arrived in the mail from Encounter Books. (Here‘s the intro.) And it couldn’t have come at a better time. Voter fraud is breaking out all over: In Tennessee, a temporary employee of the left-wing group Tennessee Citizen Action is being investigated for […]
Just heard Washington Times reporter Bill Gertz tease a disturbing story on FOX News a few minutes ago. He said he’ll have a piece in the paper tomorrow about a Delta flight to Salt Lake City, Utah, that was diverted last week when a laser penetrated the cockpit. He reported that the pilot was injured […]
The Washington Times reports on an alleged meeting between suspected al Qaeda operative Adnan Shukrijumah and the savage El Salvador-based gang, Mara Salvatrucha: A top al Qaeda lieutenant has met with leaders of a violent Salvadoran criminal gang with roots in Mexico and the United States including a stronghold in the Washington area […]
Daily Kos discusses a Families USA report asking whether families have better health care today than they did four years ago. The report cites all kinds of grim statistics, such as rising health insurance premiums and an increase in the number of Americans without insurance. My health insurance is much less generous than it was […]
In the LA Times, former blogger Billmon writes that bloggers have sold out. His thesis is that “[a]s blogs commercialize, they are tied ever closer to the mainstream media and its increasingly frivolous news agenda.” I was particularly interested in his argument that “a charmed circle of bloggers” is gaining “larger audiences and greater influence,” […]
Washington Times: Mexican official seeks open border Which prompted one poster on Free Republic to respond: How come he can’t find it? Everybody else in his country can. Here, courtesy of the Eggle family, are some photos in case the government official, the Mexican Foreign Ministry’s institutional liaison for northern border affairs, needed some direction: […]
Oh, my Gawd. The story in the New York Times about John Kerry’s Chinese assault rifle fraud is so pathetically funny that I have to quote it in full (my comments added): No Assault Rifle for Kerry, After All By JODI WILGOREN Published: September 27, 2004 Senator John Kerry’s campaign said yesterday that Mr. Kerry […]
Katherine Mangu-Ward at the Weekly Standard covers the blogs that have been covering Kerry’s crazy expat sister in Australia.

My friend Mike Fumento shares his insights on Rathergate here and points out that CBS has relied on mentally unstable sources before.
For three years, Steve Sailer has been pointing out that the much-ballyhooed Hispanic vote isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. For a long time, he was pretty much the only one making this argument. Now, as he points out on VDARE’s new blog, a demographer at the Brookings Institution agrees with him. According to […]
David Broder, the elite of the liberal media elite, shows in the Washington Post that MSM journalists still don’t get it: We don’t yet know who will win the 2004 election, but we know who has lost it. The American news media have been clobbered. So far so good, but keep reading. In a year […]
A few days ago, I blogged about stupid Democratic scare tactics. Now, here’s a not-so-bright one from the RNC that has been making the rounds on liberal blogs and an AP report titled GOP Mailing Warns Liberals Will Ban Bibles. Steve Clemons has a photo of the front and back of the flyer. Clemons notes: […]
That’s the title of this must-read piece in Front Page magazine by Robert Spencer. Here’s the intro: “Each of us was raped by between three and six men….One woman refused to have sex with them, so they split her head into pieces with an axe in front of us.” This happened in Darfur, from which […]
Jack Douglas Jr. of Kinght-Ridder reports: During a single phone conversation with Lockhart, Burkett said he suggested a “couple of concepts on what I thought (Kerry) had to do” to beat Bush. In return, he said, Lockhart tried to “convince me as to why I should give them the documents.” As sharp-eyed reader Mark Landers […]
Hey, everyone’s talking about Security Moms again. There’s this article in the San Francisco Chronicle (reprinted in today’s Manchester Union Leader and elsewhere). There’s this Associated Press report on John Edwards’ efforts to woo women voters by promising “We will do absolutely everything that needs to be done to keep this country safe.” And this […]
