Katty Kay Touts Discredited Study to Promote Government-Run Healthcare

    My apologies to Mark Twain, but God save us from liars, damn liars, and patronizing European journalists, like “BBC World News” Washington Correspondent, Katty Kay. Yesterday on “Meet the Press,” Kay implied that our current system denies Americans “access to a doctor if they don’t have insurance,” and also cited an oft-discredited study in […]

Jon Stewart – License to Lie

  How does Jon Stewart  get away with it?  Night after night he fictionalizes the actions and statements of conservatives, building goofy, moronic straw men which he then tears to pieces in a hyperkinetic frenzy of invective and ridicule.   For example last night, during a recap of yesterday’s Healthcare Summit, Stewart said Rep Eric Cantor […]

Biden’s Reality

    Apparently, now that Iraq is an island of relative sanity within a region seething with murderous hatred for America, Vice President Joe Biden has pronounced it one of the Obama administration’s “greatest achievements.”     Interesting that he should say that, since President Obama wasn’t in office during the darkest and most desperate months […]

Global warming alarmism stifles debate

  This week we witnessed an inspiring testament to the human spirit as intrepid Easterners dug themselves out of their snow-covered houses and driveways in a courageous quest to go on TV and squabble about Global Warming.   As I sat in front of the tube and observed all that fortitude and perseverance spewing about, I […]

Snapping at Palin

  Liberals divide people into two groups.  Those they think are smart and those they think are dumb as a doorknob.      Group 1 is a small, exclusive club, of which Sarah Palin is the latest member.  Group 2 is the rest of us.   Here is where it gets tricky. If you are in Group […]

Live and let live

Why does it bug atheists when others choose to have faith?   I’m scratching my head about that once again, in light of the current kafuffle at the Washington State Capitol Building. Governor Christine Gregoire approved a sign next to Christian and Jewish holiday displays, which states that faith in God “hardens hearts and enslaves […]

Palin’s power to prevail

       Alaska governor, Sarah Palin’s, entry into presidential politics last summer seemed to make Democrats a little, shall we say, defensive.    That was the impression I got, anyway, considering that they immediately declared DEFCON 50 and implemented the only version of the Strategic Defense Initiative the left will ever approve: insults and ridicule […]

Obama world

I was surprised last weekend when Obama justified higher taxes to an entrepreneurial-minded citizen: “It’s not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you that they’ve got a chance at success too… I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” […]

McCain’s motives

I’m worried about, Chloe, our little dog. Right now she is under the table, sleeping on my feet. Fifteen minutes ago she was gazing up at me with an expression of rapt adoration. Soon she will awaken and have a drink of water and then check to make sure the front yard is still there. […]

Mission improbable

These are trying times. Wall Street sunk like an elevator yesterday as the interminable convulsions of the current banking/housing correction grind along.   We’re pretty sure Osama Bin Laden isn’t dead yet – which means he’s still cowering in that cave, waiting for his hellfire missile and wishing he’d never messed with George W Bush. […]

Bill Clinton: Backseat driver

   Last week the Democrats got together for a convention, the theme of which was something like “George Bush Bites Heads Off Bunnies.”  Not surprisingly, former-president Bill Clinton was there, once again loudly trumpeting his successor’s many flaws.     It’s sad, s uch animosity. Clinton and Bush are the same age. In another world they could […]

Carter’s compassion

A while back a concerned group managed to get the plight of a tiny snail-darter before the U.S. Supreme Court, and a brand new dam was nearly torn down – arguably one of the most ludicrous examples of misguided charity in U.S. history.   At least until Jimmy Carter started playing elder statesman, roaming the […]
