His friends and colleagues can’t believe their “peaceful” community activist friend would do such a thing. Time for […]
As if California GOP Senate candidate Carly Fiorina’s massive bailout-supporting economic advice for John McCain wasn’t bad enough (reminder from yesterday’s column: “In California, McCain’s PAC supports former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina – a celebrity name with deep pockets of her own, massive media exposure, and a checkered business record. Fiorina served as the economic […]

Help! I’ve fallen from civil rights relevancy and I can’t get up.
My syndicated column this week: THE CULTURE OF “BITCHES, NIGGAS, AND HOS” Let’s stipulate: I have no love for Don Imus, Al Sharpton, or Jesse Jackson. I repeat: A pox on all their race-baiting houses. Let’s also stipulate: The Rutgers women’s basketball team didn’t deserve to be disrespected as “nappy-headed hos.” No woman deserves that. […]

Looking for a late-night laugh? Check out the fulmination from Ned Lamont’s nutroots gal pal, Jane Hamsher, sputtering about her blackface debacle.

It’s those damned “right-wing Republicans:” I sincerely apologize […]

The New York Times discovers the moonbat reverse-diet plan in a piece titled “As a tactic, starving is found wanting:” Saddam Hussein ended his 19-day hunger strike last Wednesday with a meal of beef, rice and Coca-Cola, but he had little to show for his starvation.
