Up in smoke?
And I didn’t let him get away with it.
Bill Maher’s witch hunt — and the missing context for O’Donnell’s remarks; Update: O’Donnell responds
Narcissism. Blackmail. Distortion. All wrapped in his trademark smirk of pallor. Yes, it’s tired old liberal “comedian” Bill Maher trying to get Senate GOP primary candidate Christine O’Donnell to come on his show by baiting her with a brief video clip in which she mentions having “dabbled” in “witchcraft” and hung around people who practiced […]
One of my favorite CPAC moments: Meeting Col. Bud Day, the nation’s most highly decorated soldier since General Douglas MacArthur, and Vietnam veteran Bob McMahon of the Vietnam Veterans Legacy Foundation The Hot Air team spent the past three, jam-packed days and sleepless nights covering the Conservative Political Action Conference–meeting countless grass-roots activists, catching up […]
Fight the power Source: NYSun The New School gave the nation’s preeminent moonbat academic a rousing reception. He returned the favor by trashing the college’s president, former Senator and Vietnam War veteran Bob Kerrey as a “mass murder and serial killer.” Via the NYSun: An ethnic studies professor from the University of Colorado, Ward Churchill, […]
Three quick items–make that four: 1) Once again, I say good riddance to Lincoln Chafee: Two days after losing a bid for a second term, Sen. Lincoln Chafee said he was unsure whether he would remain a Republican. Chafee lost to Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse in a race seen as a referendum on President Bush and […]
My nominee: Bill Maher as Steve Irwin.
Lurch falls flat Lots of people are e-mailing me John Kerry’s remarks on the Bill Maher show last Friday and suggesting he has a Bush assassination fantasy. I don’t think so. He was lamely trying to riff off a metaphor. Not bloodthirsty. Just really, really dumb. Judge for yourselves. Warning: It is extremely painful to […]
It’s out today. Read it here (PDF file). Pirate Ballerina, the blog that was central to pushing the story forward, has analysis and points to the bottom line of the report: While we are unanimous in finding that Professor Churchill’s research misconduct is serious and that we should express the degree of that seriousness through […]
Much has been made of the rabid Left’s online swarm that shut down the Washington Post’s blog comment section. The comments seemed comparatively tame to me. Maybe I’ll copy off Chapter 6 of Unhinged and send it off to the WaPo ombudsman and her editors to help them feel better. Meantime, the moonbat manipulation of […]
She. Is. Mad. I think you will get a kick out of my latest, Unhinged-themed column: “Who are you calling angry?” Intro: Janeane Garofalo, left-wing actress-turned-Air America radio host, is a miserable woman. Last week before the holidays, she turned up on cable TV. No, not to count her blessings but to rant against conservative […]
You’ve no doubt heard or read of the scurrilous tabloid allegations being made by anonymous attackers about President Bush. Unhinged Bush haters are gleefully embracing the National Enquirer story and trashing the president. That is to be expected. It comes with the territory. But what Bill Maher did to exploit the smear story on Friday […]
Sen. Mary Landrieu reiterates her threat to punch President Bush. And Bill Maher says Republicans need anger management?
Counterpunch, a widely-read left-wing political newsletter edited by Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair, published a rambling interview the other day with America’s nuttiest professor, Ward Churchill. It seems I’ve gotten under the blithering professor’s skin. When the interview first appeared, Churchill was quoted accusing me of “blatant plagiarism” (screenshot via Shock and Blog) and […]
The nuttiest professor’s fragging comments, blogged here three days ago with a big hat tip to the diligent folks at PirateBallerina, are now on video at Trey Jackson’s. The Denver Post (which properly credits PB; good for them) reports that Churchill is, naturally, defending his latest smear. Controversial University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill says […]
He just doesn’t shut up. Fortunately, the vigilant bloggers at Pirate Ballerina continue to track the nutty professor’s bloviations. At a forum on “conscientious objection and resistance to military recruiters” in Portland on Friday, Churchill seemed to suggest support for fragging–troops murdering their own on the battlefield–as an effective anti-war tactic. PB has transcript excerpts […]
Meet Timothy Shortell, Brooklyn College’s recently-elected chairman of the school’s sociology department: Shortell received 7 out of 12 faculty votes to secure his new position, despite (or perhaps because of) crackpot online rants comparing Karl Rove to Joseph Goebbels and attacking religious people as “moral retards.” It says something that students are more outraged at […]
I received an interesting e-mail recently from Jory Weitz, the casting director of Napoleon Dynamite. Haven’t seen that movie yet, but my hubby loved it. Anyway, Weitz is now making a documentary all about the word “f**k” and “its effect on our everyday lives.” Yes, “F**k.” The Sundance people and elite movie critics are going […]
Well, Teresa Heinz Kerry’s subdued act didn’t last long did it? By now, you’ve all read Her Highness’s condescending remarks about our First Lady Laura Bush. Teresa’s boneheaded ““apology” was even worse than the initial comments. Teresa managed to snub not only millions of teachers and librarians and Mrs. Bush’s 22 years of work as […]
I’ll be discussing my book in an in-studio interview on the John and Ken show (KFI Los Angeles) at 5 pm Pacific time today. I’ve been a John and Ken fan since they worked in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on WOND-AM. They moved to Southern California around the same time I did. I’ve been on […]
