Too much of that Guinness beer, I guess. Or a teleprompter glitch? Or maybe he was going for one of those ASCII-style emoticons? Leave your best theory. *** […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 24, 2011 09:58 AM

Never mind… SEIU bosses got their members and local citizens in Hastings PA all worked up about an evil shale driller in their neighborhood.

The Israeli Navy turned back her S.S. Moonbat. Alas, her Islamofascist-boosting journeys are far from over. Over the last week, she appeared on state-run TV in […]

Adult Baby Syndrome

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 20, 2011 09:32 AM

In 1996, entitlement reformer Pete Peterson asked, “Will America Grow Up Before It Grows Old?” The answer, sadly, is still a big fat toddler-screeching, “No!” *** Adult […]

Hollyweird, meet reality. The WSJ has a must-read op-ed exposing how liberal comedian Stephen Colbert’s campaign finance gag blew up in his face.

Gingra Din

By Doug Powers  •  May 19, 2011 10:43 AM

**Written by Doug Powers Thanks to Newt Gingrich’s spokesman Rick Tyler and his soaring, epic defense of the besieged candidate, we have a sequel of sorts to Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem, Gunga Din.
