By Michelle Malkin  •  January 28, 2010 01:02 PM

Every Senate Democrat voted to raise the debt limit to $14.3 trillion. The vote was 60-40 on straight partisan lines. Let me repeat that — and let it be repeated loudly and often: Every Senate Democrat voted to raise the debt limit to $14.3 trillion. That’s $45,000 per American. Here’s the roll call vote: Can’t […]

White liberal TV host can’t stop talking about president’s skin color

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 28, 2010 11:18 AM

‘Fess up, my liberal friends and readers. Are you not now completely mortified by the continued Archie Bunker ruminations on race by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews? Still stuck in the ’60s babbling about the Kennedy administration, his patronizing attitude toward President Obama makes Harry “Negro dialect” Reid and Robert “Kleagle” Byrd look like hip, young 21st […]

The shout-outs Obama forgot

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 28, 2010 09:47 AM

Reader Karen raises a good point about President Obama’s missing shout-outs last night: Greetings from Tampa, Fl: No one in the media has brought up the ultimate snub from Pres. Obama during his speech last night. He gave a shout out to Michelle Obama- twice, Joe Biden- once, but to the two officers who brought […]

Tinseltown’s favorite Marxist historian passed away after a heart attack yesterday while traveling in Santa Monica, according to the Boston Globe: Howard Zinn, the Boston University historian and political activist who was an early opponent of US involvement in Vietnam and whose books, such as “A People’s History of the United States,” inspired young and […]

Zzzzz: Two not-so-sharp responses to Obama’s SOTU

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 27, 2010 11:50 PM

Obama was supposed to set a “new tone” in Washington tonight. Don’t think he meant the tone to sound like snoring. Janet Napolitano should have brought her Snuggie to the State of the Union Address. Here she is putting the “nap” in Napolitano: (hat tip: Cristy Li) Harry Reid forgot to drink his Red Bull, […]

Two sharp responses to Obama’s SOTU

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 27, 2010 10:39 PM

Va. Gov. Bob McDonnell is giving a terrific counter-response to Obama’s spend-all, do-all State of the Union address. He is drawing on the Founding Fathers and talking about the need to restrain government. “The federal government is simply trying to do too much.” Speech excerpts here: JOBS “Good government policy should spur economic growth, and […]

SOTU open thread: Blame the lobbyists! Fund high-speed rail boondoggles! Spending freeze plan met with near-silence, laughter; disses SCOTUS in front of SCOTUS

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 27, 2010 07:40 PM

Scroll for updates/liveblogging… We’re an hour and a half away from President Obama’s Swagga Recovery Speech. He’s going to get his mojo back, we’re told, by acknowledging missteps — and then dumping the blame on lobbyists. Seriously. I know a lot of folks are organizing SOTU drinking games. But I don’t need the headache. This […]

Secret AIG bailout docs leaked; Update: Bernanke on the hot seat

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 27, 2010 04:54 PM

Eeenteresting. About a week ago, the SEC agree to cover-up bailout documents for AIG until 2018. The documents relate to the backroom bank bailout payments at top dollar to AIG counterparties — which know-nothing Tim Geithner was grilled about today on the Hill. The leak comes as Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke heads to the Hill […]

Climate Change Republican Lindsey Graham’s cap-and-tax retreat

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 27, 2010 03:09 PM

The Massachusetts Miracle wasn’t just a wake-up call for Democrats. It was a wake-up call for Big Government Republicans, Business-As-Usual Republicans, McCain Republicans, and Climate Change Republicans. Lindsey Graham is all four, of course. In October, he penned an enviro-nitwit op-ed with John Kerry signing on to the Democrats’ massive cap-and-tax plan. He’s singing a […]
