SEND GEORGE VOINOVICH A TISSUE

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 31, 2005 04:45 PM

I haven’t forgotten this GOP abomination . Neither have a group of young Ohioans who have launched a website and campaign to provide their blubbering U.S. Senator some, uh, emotional support. It’s called Console George and they’re asking people to send tissues to Sen. Voinovich. Hah! The site will post photos of the tissues you […]

IN DEFENSE OF GUANTANAMO BAY

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 31, 2005 03:10 PM

President Bush’s response to a question about Guantanamo Bay at his press conference this afternoon was woefully inadequate, and not just because he flubbed the word “dissemble.” While he rightfully criticized Amnesty International’s hyperbolic report on alleged abuses at Gitmo as “absurd,” I don’t think he defended our detention policies and practices vigorously or articulately […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 31, 2005 08:29 AM

CNN is celebrating its 25th anniversary all week. Here are just a few of the “defining moments” the cable news network won’t be toasting: The bogus Operation Tailwind report CNN in bed with Saddam Hussein CNN’s Ted Turner mocks his own Catholic employees as “Jesus freaks” CNN-n-Soros Easongate *** Bloggers covering CNN’s anniversary events from […]

SPECIAL REPORT: A CLOSER LOOK AT ANTI-BUSH “ART”

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 31, 2005 05:12 AM

Sometimes, “art” is nothing more than hatred wrapped in vulgarity framed with stupidity hung on a wall. Like many of you, I read the this Drudge-linked story last week describing a vulgar anti-Bush painting that depicted the president getting sodomized by a Saudi over a barrel of oil. There was something missing, though. The online […]

WISCONSIN: ABORTION IS RISING FALLING

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 31, 2005 05:09 AM

A new state report shows the abortion rate in Wisconsin is at its lowest since the state began tracking abortions in 1974, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Wisconsin was one of the states that professor Glenn Stassen said was experiencing an increase in abortions. He later retracted that claim, but his now-discredited conclusions were echoed […]

WAPO: SOCIAL SECURITY INDEXING REFORM “MERITS SERIOUS CONSIDERATION”

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 31, 2005 05:08 AM

The Washington Post editorial board likes President Bush’s proposal to adjust how Social Security benefits are indexed: IS PRESIDENT BUSH advocating cruel cuts in Social Security? Consider these calculations by the Urban Institute’s C. Eugene Steuerle: Government-provided retirement benefits for the average couple retiring in 1960 amounted to $195,000. Today, that amount has grown to […]

WHAT LIBERAL MEDIA? OPERATION TENNESSEE WALTZ EDITION

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 29, 2005 08:19 AM

AP neglects to mention the party affiliation of Tennessee state senator John Ford, who resigned after being placed under house arrest in an FBI corruption sting. Hint: he ain’t a Republican. (This earlier AP story I linked to posted at the NY Times has now rectified the omission.) Update: Ranting Right Wing Howler does a […]

REALITY CHECK

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 27, 2005 02:37 PM

ComScore Media Metrix estimates that Daily Kos had 212,000 unique visitors in April, compared to almost 30 million unique visitors to the New York Times web site. If so, that means nytimes.com had 140 times as many readers as Kos, the most heavily-trafficked political blog. It also suggests that the number of visits at a […]

“MOST LIKELY TO ASSASSINATE BUSH”

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 27, 2005 10:52 AM

From Widefield, Colorado, the latest addition to the anti-Bush assassination chic file (hat tip: reader Angela C.): High school yearbooks were recalled so that administrators could black out a joke caption under one student’s picture: “most likely to assassinate President Bush.” Mesa Ridge High School officials recalled about 100 yearbooks earlier this month and had […]

BOLTONBLOGGING: ANOTHER REPUBLICAN BOLTS

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 27, 2005 10:11 AM

Another Republican joins the “maverick” club: Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), the man who defeated Tom Daschle, has announced he will not vote for Bush U.N. ambassador nominee John Bolton. Thune says his opposition is payback for the Pentagon’s recommendation to close Ellsworth Air Force Base. Thune now claims that Bolton “is not the best man […]

Kurtz: FBI docs got too little attention?!?

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 27, 2005 07:57 AM

Washington Post media critic Howard Kurtz seems to tell Glenn Reynolds that the MSM is paying too little attention to newly disclosed FBI documents that contained the latest Koran-in-the-toilet allegation: I don’t contend that these FBI papers, unearthed in an ACLU lawsuit, get Newsweek off the hook. But you’d think they would be getting more […]

THE GREAT ABORTION-IS-RISING HOAX

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 27, 2005 06:39 AM

You probably haven’t heard about the new analysis by the Alan Guttmacher Institute, released Thursday, May 19. The study indicates that both the number of abortions in the U.S. and the abortion rate declined in 2001 and 2002: The Institute estimates that 1,303,000 abortions took place in the United States in 2001—0.8% fewer than the […]

WHAT IS IT WITH THE WASHINGTON POST?

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 27, 2005 06:29 AM

In this morning’s coverage of Koran abuse allegations at Gitmo, the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, USA Today, Boston Globe, Reuters, and Associated Press all mention in their lead paragraph that the Pentagon found no credible evidence that a guard flushed the Koran down a toilet. The Washington Post, on the other hand, does […]
