PARENTBLOGGING: THE CHOKING GAME?!

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2005 04:40 PM

I’ve noticed a recent spate of unfathomable stories like this one. Apparently, the “choking game” is now a youth fad. See also here and here. (I’m sure there will be readers writing in to tell me it’s been around for ages and I have nothing to worry about–been there, done that.) What I want to […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2005 07:41 AM

So, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has a new blog called “Give ‘Em Hell, Harry.” You can leave comments here. I’d suggest asking Sen.

THE NEW ORLEANS POLICE MELTDOWN

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 28, 2005 10:23 AM

This morning, Washington will be engaged in more finger-pointing sessions between the feds and La. Gov. Kathleen Blanco. But keep your eye on New Orleans and the unfolding debacle over the meltdown of the local police. As noted yesterday, superintendent Eddie Compass abruptly resigned. If he and mayor Ray Nagin think that will end scrutiny […]

CHUCKAQUIDDICK: WHERE’S THE MSM?

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 28, 2005 09:04 AM

My latest column on the Democratic dumpster diving campaign by two of Sen. Chuck Schumer’s former opposition research staffers, who abused Maryland GOP Lt. Gov. Michael Steele’s Social Security number to obtain his private credit report, is up. (Thanks to Hugh Hewitt for coining the scandal name.)

BULL CONNOR IS THE NEW HITLER

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 27, 2005 09:58 AM

Some sufferers of Bush Derangement Syndrome have grown tired of Fourth Reich analogies. They’ve Moved On to embracing NY Rep. Charlie Rangel’s comparison of President Bush to Bull Connor. (Audio at The Political Teen in case you missed it last week.) Fellow Democrats have done nothing to distance themselves from Rangel’s insane remarks. In today’s […]

HOW TO READ THE NYTIMES

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 27, 2005 09:08 AM

Never take the words they print at face value. Ever. You’ve probably already been doing that for a long time.

WHO’S AFRAID OF GROVER NORQUIST?

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 26, 2005 10:15 PM

There’s one photo I took at Saturday’s anti-war rally that I wanted to highlight separately. Take a look: This Working Assets-sponsored billboard truck, emblazoned with a quote attributed to GOP strategist Grover Norquist, was parked off of Constitution Ave. As raving moonbats passed by, they gasped and booed at the horrific budget-slashing sentiments of the […]
