By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2009 12:55 PM

Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, desperate for cash to prop up his bankrupt and broken city, will lease anything. Parking meters. Airports. Now, water. A constituent asks: “Why are we having a fire sale on everything in the city?” Because everything’s for sale in the city… If the parking meter deal put a bad taste […]

The Condensed Liberal Handbook of Racial Code Words by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Thumper the Rabbit’s parents always taught him, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all.” If the left’s self-appointed Omniscient Diviners of True Meaning have their way, conservatives in the public square won’t be left with anything […]

John Kerry’s recycled government slush fund recipe

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 16, 2011 09:27 AM

I first wrote about the progressive infrastructure bank boondoggle last September. Today’s column revisits the recycled government slush fund recipe now being offered by Jawn Kerry. Politico says the costly idea is “gaining steam.” The GOP needs to stop this runaway gravy train in its tracks. Guess who’s enabling the Left? GOP Sen. Kay Bailey […]

Weapon of Massa distraction: Cold showers and hot conspiracies

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 8, 2010 05:34 PM

Don’t trust Democrat Rep. Eric Massa any further than you can throw him. He’s been a progressive zealot and political opportunist his entire career. He’s claimed conspiracy before, is intimately bonded with the nutroots, and climbed the political ladder with backing from the odious, anti-war-hoaxer-embracing Gen. Wesley Clark. What Massa dismissively calls his “salty old […]
