Dem 08 candidates: Losers and snoozers

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 30, 2006 09:11 AM

I haven’t been overly thrilled with the GOP presidential candidates so far, but it looks like the other side has it worse. Wes Clark seems like he’s ready to jump in again–prompting James Joyner to observe: Interestingly, the Democratic field looks to be shaping up as Hillary Clinton versus a bunch of folks who have […]

Sitting down with evil

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 30, 2006 08:08 AM

Read Andy McCarthy: So now comes James Baker’s Iraq Study Group, riding in on its bipartisan white horse to save the day. The democracy project having failed, this blue-ribbon panel’s solution is: Let’s talk. Let’s talk with our enemies, Iran and Syria. Let’s talk with terror abettors as if they were good guys — just […]

Letters to Ahmadinejad

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 29, 2006 08:37 PM

Americans are responding to Ahmadinejad’s letter calling for “dialogue.” Jason Smith: “Sorry, Mahmoud, but converting to Islam under the threat of beheading and carrying out a new Holocaust are not at the top of our to-do list.” Smash does a rewrite. Robert Spencer compares the calls of Muhammad and Mahmoud. Allah Pundit: “Long story short, […]

Blabbermouth NYT: Help! Help! Help!

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 29, 2006 12:00 PM

Rebuffed by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the NYTimes puts out a desperate editorial this morning asking someone, anyone–paging Nancy Pelosi!–to help protect them from accountability for protecting illegal leakers and reporters accused of tipping off terrorist charities: A journalist’s ability to protect the identity of confidential sources has been further eroded by the Supreme Court’s […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 29, 2006 09:29 AM

Jihad sympathizers run amok in Australia: A SIMULATION exercise in which Year 11 students played Arabs and Israelis has been dropped by NSW schools after parents complained it was creating racial tension and painted terrorists in a sympathetic light.

Debunking open-borders myths

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 29, 2006 09:23 AM

Via Mark Levin, these exit poll results yielded some interesting results that will be ignored by open-borders lobby: Exit polls suggest Latino voters deserted the Republican candidates at nearly twice the rate of non-Hispanic whites during this month’s congressional elections, the Pew Hispanic Center said on Monday. But the conventional wisdom that Hispanics were turned […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 29, 2006 12:06 AM

Two simple, little reminders about the things that matter most. The first is from the Times of London: “Mother in coma laughs at her children’s jokes.” A mother of two who has spent two years in a coma has started chuckling at her children’s jokes. It was the first sound Andrea Brushneen, 31, had made […]

A federal judge did what?

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 28, 2006 10:38 PM

U.S. District Judge Audrey Collins seems to have just shredded the president’s authority to designate terrorist groups: (hat tip: John Stephenson) A federal judge struck down President Bush’s authority to designate groups as terrorists, saying his post-Sept. 11 executive order was unconstitutionally vague, according to a ruling released Tuesday. The Humanitarian Law Project had challenged […]

Michael Kinsley sneers at the Internet

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 28, 2006 10:32 AM

What a waste of time and space Michael Kinsley’s latest piece of superficial snark is: Social networking sites such as MySpace (for which Rupert Murdoch paid $580 million last year) are vast celebrations of solipsism. “My interests are music, girls, sports, clothes, cars and oo did i forget to mention girls,” writes Lex, a featured […]
