By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2009 04:36 PM

The White House etiquette czar gives its seal of approval to Alan Grayson’s verbal diarrhea. President Obama was in Florida last night and praised Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson as an “outstanding member of Congress.” But even Democrats are embarrassed by Grayson’s crude rhetoric: Republicans and Democrats slammed Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) for calling Linda Robertson, […]

Tinker Bell coopted by U.N. eco-zealots

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2009 10:55 AM

Soon to be the new mascot of the Democrats’ cap-and-tax push, Disney’s Tinker Bell was tapped by the United Nations this week to serve as an “Honorary Ambassador of Green.” This is not an Onion parody: The United Nations Monday named Disney character Tinker Bell an “Honorary Ambassador of Green” to help raise children’s environmental […]

The state opt-out mirage

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2009 10:11 AM

Doug Powers takes a closer look at Harry Reid’s state opt-out sop. There’s no there there: I haven’t seen this section of the bill, but one thing is certain: It will be easier to get Michael Moore through the eye of a needle that for states to opt out of Obamacare. There will be countless […]

Look what Scozzafava’s favorite ACORN front group is up to now

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2009 09:13 AM

The Working Families Party, an ACORN front group whose ballot line Newt Gingrich-endorsed radical leftist Dede Scozzafava has embraced on multiple occasions, is up to no good again. The NYPost reports: The labor-backed Working Families Party has engaged in “an audacious scheme to violate the law” to help the party’s favored political candidates get elected, […]

Two helicopter crashes in Afghanistan took 14 American lives earlier today. In Colorado Springs today, Staff Sgt. Glen Hale Stivison Jr. was laid to rest.

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2009 02:55 PM

Capitol Hill awaits a 3:15pm Eastern press conference from Harry Reid, who is reportedly set to announce his public-option plan amid uncertainty over Democrat support: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid this afternoon will announce his decision to include a government-run health care plan, or “public option,” in the health care bill he brings to the […]

Cartoon of the day

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2009 01:38 PM

Newt and Dede sitting in a tree, erasing lines between “R” and “D” (TobyToons via RedState): The latest Club for Growth poll on NY-23 shows conservative candidate Doug Hoffman continuing his surge over the liberal Democrat and the radical leftist “R” in the race. (Caveats: Sample size is small and CfG is pro-Hoffman. Still. Hoffman’s […]

The Chicago way: “Why are we having a fire sale on everything in the city?”

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2009 12:55 PM

Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, desperate for cash to prop up his bankrupt and broken city, will lease anything. Parking meters. Airports. Now, water. A constituent asks: “Why are we having a fire sale on everything in the city?” Because everything’s for sale in the city… If the parking meter deal put a bad taste […]

FLOTUS plays the woman card to sell Obamacare

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2009 10:41 AM

Here’s the First Lady’s latest video pitch for Obamacare aimed at women: Nope, still no mention of the mother of Dontae Adams, one of the minority patients on Chicago’s southside shipped out of the University of Chicago Medical Center under the patient-dumping program spearheaded by Mrs. Obama, Valerie Jarrett, and David Axelrod. FLOTUS skates again. […]

SEIU leads new banking shakedown campaign

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 25, 2009 11:25 PM

At the annual American Banking Association conference this weekend in Chicago, the SEIU army spearheaded an angry mob protest against major financial institutions who have taken federal bailout funds. It was the usual left-wing Kabuki theater. If the protesters were sincerely mad about the government bailouts, they’d be yelling on Capitol Hill and in front […]

Video: Laura Ingraham calls out Charlie Gibson’s ACORN ignorance

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 25, 2009 09:48 PM

On ABC News this morning at George Stephanopoulos’s This Week roundtable, fellow Fox News contributor and conservative radio talk show host Laura Ingraham took Charlie Gibson to task for his ignorance of the ACORN scandal (which, you’ll remember, a condescending Gibson said he thinks the MSM should “leave to the cables.”) Brava. Keep calling them […]

She doesn’t have the votes

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 23, 2009 12:01 PM

Photoshop: Ray D. Know your failure, Nancy. And own it: Speaker Nancy Pelosi counted votes Thursday night and determined she could not pass a “robust public option” — the most aggressive of the three forms of a public option House Democrats have been considering as part of a national overhaul of health care. Pelosi’s decision—coupled […]

If you like Medi-fraud, you’ll love Obamacare

Dear GOP: If you don’t like “Chicago-style politics”…

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 23, 2009 09:41 AM

So, the GOP leadership is waking up to Team Obama’s “Chicago-style politics.” Here’s GOP leader John Boehner condemning the White House heavy hand. I was in the Windy City last night for the United Republican Fund’s 75th anniversary. URF is committed to electing conservatives to office and I was impressed with the number of fresh, […]

Mortgage tax credit fraud by illegal aliens? Shhhhh…

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 22, 2009 04:59 PM

Whenever I have noted illegal alien mortgage fraud over the years, I’ve been smacked with the RAAAAACIST card. Wonder if the Inspector General for Tax Administration is going to get mau-mau-ed by the open borders lobby, too. Shhhhhh: The rush to implement a tax credit for first-time home buyers opened the program up to potential […]
