Christopher Hitchens breaks out the flame-thrower. Ouch: A highly irritating expression in Washington has it that “hindsight is always 20-20.” Would that it were so.

Just a heads-up: I’ll be guest-hosting The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News Channel tonight at 8pm Eastern. Hot topics: The Tenet fallout, the DC madam, and more. Tune in!
I can’t get this woman’s cry for help out of my head: Jim Hoft and Robert Mayer both sent the video and have extensive posts on the ongoing spring crackdown by the Iranian mullahcracy.

The crowds at […]

Time magazine has a retrospective and profiles of the key figures, from Rodney King to Daryl Gates to Reginald Denny and the LAPD officers. Thug Damian Williams, caught on tape beating Denny to a bloody pulp, is in jail […]
Ask Bay Area drivers: Fire can melt steel. Also happened in Houston yesterday. Will Big Ro blame Bushco for that one, too? Chuck Simmins needles the Truthers some more. Unfortunately, conspiracy-mongering pays: On “The View,” Rosie’s unpredictable nature kicked the show’s ratings up about 18 percent since last year and moved it to fifth place […]
The Daily Mail reports that Sony’s official promotion party for “Gods of War II” featured naked girls, bacchanalia, and a bloody, decapitated goat: I shudder to think how Sony will promote “The Godfather: The Don’s Edition.” Yikes.
