I haven't forgotten this GOP abomination . Neither have a group of young Ohioans who have launched a website and campaign to provide their blubbering U.S. Senator some, uh, emotional support. It's called Console George and they're asking people to send tissues to Sen. Voinovich. Hah! The site will post photos of the tissues you... Read More
President Bush's response to a question about Guantanamo Bay at his press conference this afternoon was woefully inadequate, and not just because he flubbed the word "dissemble." While he rightfully criticized Amnesty International's hyperbolic report on alleged abuses at Gitmo as "absurd," I don't think he defended our detention policies and practices vigorously or articulately...

CNN is celebrating its 25th anniversary all week. Here are just a few of the "defining moments" the cable news network won't be toasting: The bogus Operation Tailwind report CNN in bed with Saddam Hussein CNN's Ted Turner mocks his own Catholic employees as "Jesus freaks" CNN-n-Soros Easongate *** Bloggers covering CNN's anniversary events from...

Sometimes, "art" is nothing more than hatred wrapped in vulgarity framed with stupidity hung on a wall. Like many of you, I read the this Drudge-linked story last week describing a vulgar anti-Bush painting that depicted the president getting sodomized by a Saudi over a barrel of oil. There was something missing, though. The online... Read More

A new state report shows the abortion rate in Wisconsin is at its lowest since the state began tracking abortions in 1974, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Wisconsin was one of the states that professor Glenn Stassen said was experiencing an increase in abortions. He later retracted that claim, but his now-discredited conclusions were echoed...

The Washington Post editorial board likes President Bush's proposal to adjust how Social Security benefits are indexed: Bush unveiled the propsosal more than a month ago. The WaPo's comments are welcome, albeit belated. has set up a moving tribute page to honor service members who lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. The company set up the site free of charge and launched it in March. The Guest Book sections are must read. Well over 19,000 Guest Book entries from readers have been posted since the site...

AP neglects to mention the party affiliation of Tennessee state senator John Ford, who resigned after being placed under house arrest in an FBI corruption sting. Hint: he ain't a Republican. (This earlier AP story I linked to posted at the NY Times has now rectified the omission.) Update: Ranting Right Wing Howler does a... Read More

ComScore Media Metrix estimates that Daily Kos had 212,000 unique visitors in April, compared to almost 30 million unique visitors to the New York Times web site. If so, that means had 140 times as many readers as Kos, the most heavily-trafficked political blog. It also suggests that the number of visits at a... Read More
You probably will never see it in any MSM letters section, but you can read it over at Power Line.

Another Republican joins the "maverick" club: Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), the man who defeated Tom Daschle, has announced he will not vote for Bush U.N. ambassador nominee John Bolton. Thune says his opposition is payback for the Pentagon's recommendation to close Ellsworth Air Force Base. Thune now claims that Bolton "is not the best man... Read More
Washington Post media critic Howard Kurtz seems to tell Glenn Reynolds that the MSM is paying too little attention to newly disclosed FBI documents that contained the latest Koran-in-the-toilet allegation: Of course, you probably don't know what FBI papers Kurtz is talking about, because, you know, hardly anyone paid attention to them. Kurtz's employer, The... Read More
You probably haven't heard about the new analysis by the Alan Guttmacher Institute, released Thursday, May 19. The study indicates that both the number of abortions in the U.S. and the abortion rate declined in 2001 and 2002: The full study is available here (.pdf file). In the wake of the report's release last week,... Read More
In this morning's coverage of Koran abuse allegations at Gitmo, the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, USA Today, Boston Globe, Reuters, and Associated Press all mention in their lead paragraph that the Pentagon found no credible evidence that a guard flushed the Koran down a toilet. The Washington Post, on the other hand, does... Read More
Detainee who claimed American guards flushed a Koran down the toilet at Guantanamo Bay sez: "Never mind." *** Previous: - Guantanamo Bay: the rest of the story - Once more, into the toilet - Newsweek lied*. People died.
So much for "comity." And "getting things done." Vote fails 56-42. 3 Dems sided with GOP: - Landrieu, Nelson, Pryor. 656pm. Sen.

Hot political story of the day is out of the Volunteer State.

Just in from AP: Reuters adds: ABC News: So, what does Lt. Pantano plan to do? Right now, he's training troops at Camp Lejeune and hopes to return to combat to serve his country. God bless him. No u
Daily Kos and other liberal bloggers are claiming that newly-released FBI documents confirm Newsweek's allegations regarding Koran-flushing (see "FBI: Newsweek was right"). It should be obvious to anyone who so much as glances at the documents being cited that the FBI was reporting the statements of detainees rather than endorsing or validating those allegations. Immediately... Read More
My new column on a just-published children's book called "Rainbow Party" is up. USA Today's coverage of the book--aimed at 14-year-olds--is here. So, what's a rainbow party? Here's the column intro: Here's a rich irony: I'm writing today about a new children's book, but I can't describe the plot in a family newspaper without warning... Read More
BusinessWeek says Congress and the White House are inching toward a compromise on Social Security. Private accounts will not be part of the plan. Instead, the compromise would include (a) reducing the rate of growth in benefits paid to upper-income beneficiaries (as President Bush has suggested) and (b) sharply increasing taxes on upper-income taxpayers (i.e.,...

Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is shifting his position on abortion, just as George H.W.

The latest Arbitron ratings (you know, the ones Al Franken says aren't available to the public) show that Air Amerca continues to struggle. Don't worry about Franken though. He has back-up plans. Related entries here.
The claim that Power Line failed to acknowledge the provenance of the Schiavo "GOP Talking Points" memo continues to be made even though it is demonstrably false.

Here's the roll call from this afternoon's vote, 81-18. Gerry Daly sez..."Those who were not signatories for the deal, but who voted for cloture now, deserve mockery."
Oh yeah, there it's poisonous dose from Pulitzer Prize-winning liberal cartoonist David Horsey at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer: For balance, recall this. And bookmark embedded reporter Michael Yon's excellent blog.

As I've noted before, many (most?) of the 10 million blogs tracked by Technorati are computer-generated (aka "spam blogs"). AdLand notes, Something to keep in mind the next time someone starts blathering about the existence of "10 million blogs."

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... Read More
