The Autoworkers Obama Left Behind

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 29, 2012 08:59 AM

Photoshop credit: Moonbattery As long as Barack Obama insists on spinning fables about the auto bailout, I will continue to call attention to the forgotten victims and sacrificial lambs who got screwed. Yesterday’s UAW pep rally in Washington was another exercise in reality denial. I’ll say it again: The Right needs to forcefully counter the […]

Toughen up, Mitt-ercup; Update: Guess who pushed for Michigan’s open primary? Hint: Rhymes with “snit” and “fit”

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 28, 2012 10:44 AM

Call the waaaaahmbulance. Mitt Romney is railing against Rick Santorum for robocalls calling attention to his TARP bailout support/auto bailout flip-flop. Romney is decrying the robocalls aimed at Democrats as “outrageous” and “disgusting” and a “terrible dirty trick.” Today’s Michigan primary is an open primary. Inconvenient truth: There’s nothing “dirty” and there’s no “trick” in […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 27, 2012 12:36 PM

You’ll recall that I published my first round of Senate GOP endorsements last month. As I wrote on 2/15: “While fiscal conservatives remain split over the GOP presidential candidates, grassroots activists are coalescing around a stellar slate of limited-government candidates looking to reinforce and reenergize the right in Washington.” Here’s another. Clark Durant is running […]

God damn! They’re baaaaaack. Louis Farrakhan and Michael Pfleger, the Jew-bashing, race-hustling Friends of Barack Obama and Jeremiah Wright, reared their heads this weekend.

Lin-sanity: The chink in AAJA’s armor

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 24, 2012 08:54 AM

I’ll get to the ridiculous AAJA “media coverage guidelines” on basketball star Jeremy Lin in a moment. First, some background. I’ve been poking fun of the “Asian American Journalists Association” for more than a decade. The idea of color-coded journalism steeped in identity politics has always grated on my nerves. But no one does a […]
