By Michelle Malkin  •  January 14, 2009 10:36 AM

The National Taxpayers Union and Citizens Against Government Waste team up to counter the pork-crazy mayors marching on Washington for their chunks of the stimulus — Generational Theft Act of 2009 — pie.

(Photoshop via Doug Ross) Eddie Haskell Brooks by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 New York Times columnist David Brooks is the Eddie Haskell of the Fourth Estate.

Graphic via FoxNews.com The latest GOP 2012 debate starts at 9pm Eastern tonight on Fox news. GOP Rep. Thad McCotter dropped his quixotic, redundant bid today (really, how many pro-bailout, pro-health care entitlement expansion Republicans do we need in the race), so he’s off the schedule. Taking his place: Libertarian Gary Johnson. Yep, another quixotic, […]

(Photoshop via Doug Ross) The last time I blogged about David Brooks’s bloviations, I opened by asking: “How much of a tool is New York Times columnist David Brooks?” Brooks answers the question himself in his latest column: I’m a sap, a specific kind of sap.

PBS to conservative blogger: Help us. Conservative blogger to PBS: Buzz off

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 1, 2010 02:54 PM

The following e-mail arrived in my mailbox this morning from taxpayer-supported PBS — home of Obama sycophant and drool bucket-carrier David Brooks and Palin-basher/Obama cheerleader Gwen Ifill.

Sen. Coburn: Our watchdog

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 16, 2009 09:42 AM

Wrecovery.gov! It’s a good thing the White House can’t fire GOP Sen. Tom Coburn the way it fires inspectors general for blowing the whistle on waste. He’s doing the job no one else in the administration is allowed to do — telling us the truth about porkulus fraud and abuse. While Bozo the VP Joe […]
