Supreme Court Justice David Souter has announced he will retire at the end of the current term. The biggest mistake John Sununu ever made was vouching that Souter would be a “home run” for conservatives. Now, we’ll get an out liberal as opposed to a stealth one. Is it Harold Koh’s lucky day? Gah.
“AMC, you magnificent channel!”
Sarah Palin is now using Twitter (AKGovSarahPalin), and I see she’s increased about 100 followers just in the time to write this sentence. Update: Maybe the governor will be doing some Tweeting about her upcoming appearance on American Chopper. I think I’ll go to the Sturgis rally this August… ya know, just in case. Update […]
Tea, Mr. President?
Drool Bucket Award.
Open thread for all of you intrepid rightwing extremists with strong enough stomachs to endure President Obama’s 100-day television extravaganza this evening. I will be drinking SWAGGA juice and waving my tea bag at the television set. *** Fun fact: A reporter for the financially ailing New York Times gloats that the Fishwrap of Record […]
You know, I thought that slavering piece about Barack Obama’s “hipness” was rock-bottom. I was wrong. In case you ever have a need for an emergency emetic ASAP, just watch this CNN “report” on Barack Obama’s “SWAGGA:” Via TVNewser. Can’t wait for the Obama SWAGGA-thon tonight. How long before someone calls me RAAAAACIST for saying […]
The “official apology” on the White House website would appear to have a mistake in it: Somebody needs to tell the White House to stop referring to the flight that buzzed Manhattan as “Air Force One.” The plane only gets that call sign when it’s carrying the president. Or… was it? /ConspiracyFodder
Omri Ceren takes a look at CNN’s tally of Obama’s gaffes and finds — surprise! — that there are many, many items missing. Attention, CNN: Meet Don Surber. And meet Bob Newman.
The White House has an official photo page at Flickr. Why am I guessing that the “open comments” feature will soon be disabled? While we’re at it, since the White House Flickr page is a “caption this photo” rich environment, we should be able to get a little fun out of this picture of Obama […]
Shooting down “misleading” labels
(Photoshop credit: Nice Deb) My syndicated column commemorates Barack Obama’s 100 days with the Scare Force One story as a take-off point. Imagine if this fiasco had happened under George Bush’s watch. It would have made the Left’s incessant carping over the “fake plastic turkey,” Mission Accomplished banner, and My Pet Goat incidents look like […]
“The auctioneer, who had a pacemaker according to associates, began to collapse and was later taken to a local hospital.”
She was yet another in a long line of tax-troubled Obama nominees. Worse, she lowballed the amount of campaign cash she received from infamous abortion doctor George Tiller. And yet, the two, pro-life GOP Senators from Kansas both voted for her confirmation. Kathleen Sebelius is your new HHS Secretary by a vote of 65-31: GOP […]
…three non-residents pleaded guilty to voter fraud charges in Ohio today. The Palestra.net, which did incredible work documenting all the election shenanigans, has the story. More from the Columbus Dispatch. Sorry for the “distraction.” Move along…
I wrote two weeks ago about transparency killer, Ron Sims, who has been tapped by Barack Obama for the No. 2 position at HUD and said that I hoped “someone on the committee is talking to the folks who have fought the real Ron Sims in his own backyard.” Last week, blogger Stefan Sharkansky of […]
Anybody up for another game of “One of these things is not like the other”?
What a way to cap off 100 days in office, huh? Using military resources for a cheap photo-op. Scaring the pants off the public. Exploiting 9/11 imagery for self-aggrandizement. Keeping secrets and causing mass panic. Um, can you imagine if a GOP administration did this? Can you imagine?! Here is what President Obama said about […]
Barking up the wrong tree?
Bill Steffen is the Chief Meteorologist for WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Living 30 miles or so east of Grand Rapids, I see Bill’s forecasts on occasion — most often at this time of year, when severe spring weather is rolling through. But Steffen, an over 30-year meteorology veteran, has made some fine contributions to […]
