By Michelle Malkin  •  April 27, 2011 10:41 PM

News out of the Windy City tonight: Chicago’s Cardinal Francis George has at long last suspended prog nutball Rev. Michael Pfleger. Pardon my language, but it’s about damned time. The Chicago Tribune reports: “Citing what he called threats from the Rev. Michael Pfleger to leave the church, Cardinal Francis George has removed the outspoken priest […]

The birth certificate circus

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 27, 2011 12:01 PM

Over the last two and a half years, I’ve taken a lot of heat from birthers right here in my own blog comments section, on the radio, and in my e-mail box for warning about the lurch into fringe conspiracism — a penchant shared by Trig Truthers, 9/11 Truthers, and birthers.

Wisconsin Watch: Partisan calls from…a hospital?; Plus: UW fake sick-note doctors to “face penalties”

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 26, 2011 05:25 PM

Well, how did this happen, hmmm? The Wisconsin GOP reports that Democrats in the Dairy State are “using a fraudulent tactic to harass and intimidate constituents who favor recalling Democrat Senator Dave Hansen of Green Bay.” Somehow, calls are being placed in the name of “Bay Care Aurora” — a local hospital — by left-wing […]

Dear NPR: What’s so funny about death threats?

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 26, 2011 03:19 PM

Remember those misdirected death threats from unhinged anti-Koch addicts that Doug Powers spotlighted last week? Refresher here. Well, government-sponsored National Public Radio — erstwhile guardians of civility — apparently found the death-threat misdirection amusing. A segment last Friday on NPR’s Morning Edition made light of the plight of Iowa businessman Dutch Koch — no relation […]

Is Chris Matthews Writing Headlines at Politico These Days?
