Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet made weekend headlines with his noble declaration that he’ll stand by the Demcare takeover — even if it means losing his job. Since he was already well on his way to losing his seat thanks to his reckless vote for generational theft and bogus government job inflation, where’s the sacrifice? This […]
Palin-bashers of pallor.
I don’t care about Adam Lambert’s sexuality. What he did at the American Music Awards was just gross. More to the point: It was certainly not “music” or “entertainment.” It sounded like kittens being boiled in hot oil while a kindergarten class pounded on ’80s synthesizers and a Rock Band drum set. Egad, this is […]
“Their assessment is negative.”
No, it’s not a joke: One of the world’s most famous children’s toys, Barbie, has been given a makeover – wearing a burkha. Wearing the traditional Islamic dress, the iconic doll is going undercover for a charity auction in connection with Sotheby’s for Save The Children. More than 500 Barbies went on show yesterday at […]
Don’t mean to give you more indigestion on a Saturday night, but thought you should see this from The Hill: Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine)…is still in talks with President Barack Obama regarding her final vote on the legislation. Snowe said that she spoke to Obama while he was aboard Air Force One en route to […]
Saturday in the Senate: Cash for Cloture; Reid gets 60; Update: 8:15pm Eastern cloture vote – 60-39; Voinovich absent; Dems invoke Teddy Kennedy; Reid: “Ted would be happy.”
Weekend at Harry’s.
Tuition hikes and custodian layoffs were the latest excuse for a UC Berkeley campus tantrum. The San Francisco Chronicle called the student takeover of Wheeler Hall an “occupation.” In the old days, dyed-in-the-wool libs would practice civil disobedience and accept their punishment. In the Age of No Consequences, Berkeley students demand that they be allowed […]
Attorney General Eric Holder, Team Obama’s Dirty Dozen (get your trading cards here) I’ve been pounding on corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder’s brazen conflicts of interests and terror-friendly law firm work. Now, the Washington Times has the exclusive on a DOJ recusal list that looks to be the tip of the iceberg: The Obama Justice […]
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti Eric Zimmerman at The Hill has new details on mismanaged federal DOJ grants to ACORN and its affiliates: ACORN and its affiliates received $200,000 in Justice Department grants between 2002 and 2009, according a report issued today by the department’s Inspector General. No DOJ grants went directly to ACORN, but a […]
Payoffs from A to Z.
Attorney General Eric Holder, Team Obama’s Dirty Dozen (get your trading cards here) I mentioned this event in my Fort Hood column last week — and it went as nauseatingly as expected: Corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder flew to Detroit last night to pay homage to Arab-American/Muslim grievance groups and to reassure them that he’s […]
Scroll down for updates…Balzano and other SEIU executives in Allentown PA quit over Boy Scout thuggery… Photoshop credit: American Power My column today provides context for the SEIU bullying of Boy Scouts in Allentown, Pa.

David Hamilton is a hard Left, former ACORN fund-raiser and abortion radical who was rated “not qualified” by the ABA. Now, via LifeNews, he is federal judge: The Senate voted today 59-39 to confirm a pro-abortion federal judge President Barack Obama appointed to become a new appeals court justice. David Hamilton, of Indiana, is the […]
“You guys make a pretty good photo op.”
We’ve had Bush Derangement Syndrome. Cheney Derangement Syndrome. Female Conservative Derangement Syndrome. And Palin Derangement Syndrome. But this week, the blogging world saw the first definitive case of Palin-Induced Psychosis suffered by the Atlantic magazine’s Andrew Sullivan. It’s not a pretty sight. Watch him completely unravel here and here. Jules Crittenden provides a road map […]
On Monday, I spotlighted SEIU thuggery in Allentown, Pa., over a Boy Scout’s volunteer work. SEIU’s Nick Balzano threatened to file a grievance when a teenager pursuing his Eagle Scout badge contributed too much free labor clearing walking paths and improving his neighborhood. The story, first published in The Morning Call, was picked up by […]
We’ve made the “rejected RNC/GOP solicitation form” a regular feature here at MichelleMalkin.com. Now, it has inspired a new genre. Reader Laurie in Pennsylvania e-mails: Hi Michelle, I totally ripped off your RNC membership form rejection idea with the constant requests my husband gets to join AARP. (He belonged for one year in 2002 and […]

Population control has always been behind the green agenda: The battle against global warming could be helped if the world slowed population growth by making free condoms and family planning advice more widely available, the U.N. Population Fund said Wednesday. The agency did not recommend countries set limits on how many children people should have, […]
Democrat Rep. Dianne DeGette of Colorado is leading the charge to keep abortion funding in the Obamacare/Pelosicare government health care takeover bill. She is fuming over the exercise of political speech by leaders of faith who oppose government abortion subsidies. She wants to shut them up: [DeGette] also said that religiously-affiliated groups like the U.S. […]
I’d be burning the phone lines right now if I were an Ohio taxpayer: Ohio taxpayers are right in the middle of the civil rights lawsuit that Samuel Joseph — “Joe the Plumber” — Wurzelbacher has filed against three former state employees, charging that they illegally accessed his confidential information through state databases. Ohio Attorney […]
Obama’s double-talk on dissent.
