LOOK WHO REALLY CARES ABOUT VOTER FRAUD

By thisistwitchy  •  April 30, 2005 03:58 PM

Following up on David Gelernter’s excellent LA Times column on the Dems’ Infantile American Principle… Efforts to require valid photo ID upon voting–the horror, the horror!–continue to be stymied by the “Count Every Bogus Vote” lobbyists on the Left. Playing the scare-the-poor-and-old-people card, Democrat governor Jim Doyle of election fraud-riddled Wisconsin just vetoed a measure […]

“IT COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO ANYBODY”

By thisistwitchy  •  April 30, 2005 12:53 PM

This is a tragic story of a freak accident, compellingly written by a former Seattle Times colleague of mine, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Tomas Alex Tizon. Puts all your petty gripes in perspective. Also makes you appreciate the best of what journalism can be–gifted reporting and compassionate story-telling, from the lede graf to the ending that […]

WHO’S IN A FAMILY?

By thisistwitchy  •  April 29, 2005 11:00 PM

Lots of buzz in New England and from parentbloggers about this book: The book, “Who’s in a Family?,” teaches preschoolers about “multicultural contemporary family units” including nuclear, intergenerational, mixed-race, and lesbian and gay arrangements. David Parker, father of a 5-year-old boy in Concord, Mass., was arrested Wednesday at his son’s kindergarten over a disagreement about […]

LIBERTY RISING

One of my favorite anti-Moonbat antidotes, Protest Warriors.com, has a cool new documentary online about their battle with the Left last summer. They’ve put a half-dozen movies together on DVD. Check ’em out.

THE WASHINGTON POST’S HEADLINE HYPE

By thisistwitchy  •  April 29, 2005 11:59 AM

From today’s Washington Post Corrections section: The headline on an April 28 analysis about ethics allegations against House Majority Leader Tom DeLay overstated the opinions expressed by legal experts. The experts said that DeLay is in danger of being declared in violation of House rules, but they did not characterize such a finding as “likely.” […]

LOOK WHO’S DEFENDING THE RICH NOW

By thisistwitchy  •  April 29, 2005 11:11 AM

The left side of the blogosphere has gone into full-blown spin mode regarding the effects of President Bush’s Social Security indexing proposal. Here’s Josh Marshall: let’s state specifically what this to-some-sexy-sounding proposal offers: steep benefit cuts for all but the lowest income Americans and meager increases in benefits for them. It’s hard to see how […]

THIS DAY IN HISTORY: SA-I-GU

By thisistwitchy  •  April 29, 2005 10:20 AM

Thirteen years ago, thugs and morons in southern California terrorized law-abiding business owners and citizens and sent Los Angeles up in flames. Coddling apologists still insist on referring to the L.A. riots as “civil unrest” or the “disturbance.” Korean-American shopkeepers in particular will not soon forget. Meanwhile, one of the most famous hate-mongers to emerge […]

SQUASHING THE “THERE’S A WAR ON” MEME

By thisistwitchy  •  April 29, 2005 09:39 AM

I was going to comment on this curious post at Instapundit, which seems to take an uncharacteristically rude slap at Kathryn Lopez of NRO for simply noting House passage of the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act (apparently such measures are reckless and unnecessary diversions because there’s a “war on”), but Ace of Spades already nailed […]
