So, Pat Buchanan–substituting for Joe Scarborough again on MSNBC–read a prepared statement tonight regarding Lawrence O’Donnell’s abominable behavior toward John O’Neill last week. “Lawrence O’Donnell is and has been a valued contributor,” Buchanan said, however he “crossed the line” and was “disrespectful to you the viewer.” What about how he behaved toward O’Neill?!? Not a […]
The transcript is up. Here is a small taste. It doesn’t do justice at all to the screamfest that took place, but you’ll get the idea if you imagine O’Donnell chopping at the air with a rhetorical hatchet a la Jack Nicholson in The Shining: O’DONNELL: …You know the truth is what got them out […]
Arthur Chrenkoff spots a telling case of Kerrypocrisy: Remember when John Kerry described the Coalition of the Willing in Iraq as not a “genuine coalition” but “some trumped-up, so-called coalition of the bribed, the coerced, the bought and the extorted”? If you do, you might be surprised to learn that Kerry’s policy to attract back […]
Medpundit writes: it’s been my experience that most physicians are willing to work with their patients to get those bills paid. Some physicians will accept work in kind – carpentry, landscaping, lawn mowing, etc. or even produce. More commonly, they’ll agree to small payments over time. I have a patient who has been paying me […]
This weekend the story was Kerry’s lies about what he did as an anti-war activist following the Vietnam war. Last night it was Kerry’s lie about meeting all the members of the U.N. Security Council. This morning I mentioned Kerry’s alarmist claim that 95 percent of cargo coming into the U.S. is uninspected. Now Robert […]
According to Drudge, John Kerry repeats an oft-used line in an interview with Katie Couric today to show he’s tough on homeland security: Well, I do know that America will be safe. Under my leadership. Because we’re gonna not allow 95 percent of American containers to come in uninspected.” Kerry and his minions use the […]
The San Francisco Chronicle has a morbid story on the latest in gangsta fashion.
Joel Mowbray has the scoop on John Kerry’s fable about meeting with United Nations ambassadors before the October 2002 vote to authorize the use of force in Iraq: U.N. ambassadors from several nations are disputing assertions by Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry that he met for hours with all members of the U.N. Security […]
Catching up on my blogroll reading, there’s a disturbing report from Julie at Drink This about her personal experience with voter fraud at the polls in Los Angeles. She’s looking for advice on how to deal with an apparent thief who used her name to register as a Democrat. The story is here. *** Also, […]
The gentlemen of Power Line are absolutely right: What happened to Ann Coulter last week was not funny. Leftists greeted the news that two men attacked her during a University of Arizona college speaking event with glee, ridicule, and misogynist gloating. (Dan Flynn notes that this isn’t the first time Coulter has been physically attacked.) […]
Thanks to everyone who sent along birthday wishes and pumpkin pie recipes last week! We tried one with fresh pumpkin–using 1 medium sugar pumpkin–and another with canned pumpkin: I preferred the taste of the canned pumpkin pie, but you can’t get into the spirit of the season without going through the ritual of scraping out […]
Thanks to David M for pointing out a rotten link in my Lawrence O’Donnell post. Apparently, the blogger at “Dave’s Blurbs” has a rude habit of filching other people’s blog entries and passing them off as his own. That’s not blogging. That’s plagiarism. Knock it off. Update: The fake blogger’s site has been taken down.
John Kerry has been using the supposedly tragic plight of Lori Sheldon, a Pennsylvania mother of two daughters, to show us all how heartless and cruel the Bush administration has been to working families. Get out your hankies. Not. The New York Times reports: Ms. Sheldon took her husband, John, a ground crewman at the […]
Better late than never, I guess.
Mommypundit has some invaluable insights on why Kerry is a dawg.
There isn’t one. The New York Times reports: Most countries contract with several makers, in part to avoid critical dependence on any one supplier. And though countries other than the United States had placed orders with Chiron for a smaller part of their vaccine needs, no other country was so dependent on the Liverpool factory. […]
Policymakers on both sides of the aisle are buzzing about the latest idea to expand the federal government’s role in health insurance (New York Times, “Momentum Builds for U.S. Role in Paying Highest Health Costs“). Evidently, there is an emerging consensus among Beltway health policymakers that it’s not enough that the feds provide or subsidize […]
Something unbelievable just went down on MSNBC’s Scarborough Country. Lawrence O’Donnell screamed at John O’Neill for two segments as substitute host Pat Buchanan hopelessly tried to moderate. O’Donnell interrupted O’Neill every few seconds, repeatedly called the Vietnam veteran a “liar” and a “creep,” and sneered, scowled, and shouted at the top of his lungs about […]
Here’s an article about the millions of Australians who were given a contaminated polio vaccine in the late 1950s and early 1960s (“Millions given infected polio vaccine“): Australia’s leading experts on the virus, which is known as simian virus 40 or SV40, have found traces of it in human tumour cells and are calling for […]
There’s a new report quoting a Honduras homeland security official blowing the whistle on al Qaeda recruitment of Central American gang members, who can easily slip through our southern border. Oscar Alvarez’s critics say he’s concocting the threat to justify tough crackdowns on gangs and smugglers. But as the article notes: A spokesman for Mexico’s […]
More foreign support for John Kerry, this time an apparent endorsement from the Army of Ansar al-Sunnah. He just keeps racking them up. Update: Godless Americans give Kerry the thumbs up. (Someone tell me this is a joke!)
^&*$%#@$%^#! Sorry for the spleen-venting so early in the morning, but read this from the AP, headlined “Bush wants intelligence bill free of immigration provisions:” The White House yesterday asked Congress to reject an attempt in the House to place illegal-immigration measures in an intelligence reform bill. The Bush administration wants “an effective bill that […]
In a last-ditch bid for battleground votes, John Kerry got a hunting makeover. Here’s the AP photo of his goose hunting trip in Ohio hot off the presses: He wisely ditched the bright orange vest… …and the one-eyed stance… But gun owners and outdoorsmen in Ohio still aren’t buying it. “I like my guns, and […]
“I will bring my faith with me to the White House and it will guide me.” – John F. Kerry, Oct. 20, Xenia, Ohio Where are the church-state separatists now?
In the Washington Post: The Kindness of a Stranger My husband, an Army captain who was in uniform, our young daughter and I went to a restaurant near Potomac Mills for dinner Oct. 15. When it came time to pay the check, our waiter informed us that another patron had picked up our tab. I […]
