“Please, please arrest me,” says an illegal alien who has been here 17 years and wanted to submit herself to federal custody to get on the road to citizenship. Yes, really. Uncle Sam’s answer: Um, no. Yes, really. Via KETV in Omaha, Neb: A Schuyler woman who has lived in the United States for 17 […]

Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti Wanna get depressed instantly? Read this. And an even more depressing reminder: Only 14 Senate Republicans opposed Obama’s massive expansion of the national service boondoggle. God save us from bipartisanship.

“A Reading Guide to the Senate Bill’s Backroom Deals”

I’ve been keeping tab on the Demcare backroom deals over the past several months (see Beltway Christmas: Cash for corruptocrats; Cash for Cloture: Demcare bribe list, Pt. II; and The Demcare bribe list). Now, the Senate Republican Policy Committee has compiled “A Reading Guide to the Senate Bill’s Backroom Deals.” Keep it handy: The White […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 25, 2010 11:22 AM

Ladies and gentlemen, I call your attention to the key passage in unrepentant Climate Change Republican John McCain’s Senate floor statement yesterday on cap-and-trade. Note well (hat tip: Edward John Craig/Planet Gore): Let me say to my colleagues, I am proud of my record on climate change. I have been all over the world, and […]

Blowhard-a-thon at Blair House: Health care summit open thread; Update: Alexander calls out Dems on reconciliation; Obama to McCain: “We’re not campaigning anymore;” Obama’s thin skin is showing; Slaughter bemoans dead lady’s dentures; Boehner: “Dangerous experiment”

Scroll down for liveblogging… Six entire hours of President Obama pretending to listen to the Republicans talk about the health care reform alternatives his press shop denied existed…even as they linked to those proposals on their own website. Whatevs. Here’s the video embed in case you have an urgent need to watch Oba-kabuki during your […]

Gesture politics: Repealing the antitrust exemption for health insurers

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 25, 2010 09:33 AM

Here’s the roll call vote in the House last night to repeal a longstanding antitrust exemption for health insurers. So, how exactly does this help families struggling with health insurance costs? Not much. USA Today makes the gesture politics clear: “I’m proud of my colleagues on both sides of the aisle for standing up for […]

Lights! Cameras! Health care Oba-kabuki!; Update: WH excludes governors, state legislators; hey, how ’bout Stupak?; House GOP attendance list

Scroll for updates… Photoshop credit: Reader iPOTUS I posted this perfect Oba-kabuki photoshop last week, but it’s worth re-posting as the curtains open on the Great Bogus “Bipartisan” Health Care Summit. As noted earlier this morning, everyone’s favorite GOP Senate collaborator with the big government Dems, John McCain, will in the middle of the action. […]

Re-branding the government: Obama, TMP, and logo-mania

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 24, 2010 10:56 AM

I’ve gotten tons of e-mails over the last several days regarding the new Obama-fied logo for the Missile Defense Agency (it was unveiled last fall). If you go to the DOD/MDA’s website here, you’ll see both the new logo at the top and the old logo at the bottom. Old: New: Free Republic first noticed […]

A failure of GOP imagination

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 24, 2010 09:55 AM

I’ve already made clear: John McCain is the problem with the GOP. And he’s trying to install his mini-mes as congressional candidates across the country. Yesterday, Mitt Romney lined up with He That Ails the GOP: Romney, the former Governor of Massachusetts released a statement today, saying it would be “hard to imagine the United […]

Corruptocrat Eric Holder’s national security cover-up

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 24, 2010 09:07 AM

My column pounds again on Eric Holder over his jihadi lawyer stonewalling. Question: Where’s Mass. GOP Sen. Scott Brown? Remember when he made this one of his key campaign agenda items and carried the banner on the issue during his election night speech: “And let me say this, with respect to those who wish to […]
