The liberal Village Voice and I agree: the New York Times' real estate dealings stink.

The key questions that curious radio... Read More
It has been 10 days since I first posted on Cindy Sheehan, and after sticking my neck out and taking massive amounts of ongoing abuse and ridicule for giving her the scrutiny she deserves, I am more than happy to let others pick up the slack.

Bill at INDC Journal, accuses me of "shoehorning science and medicine in order to fit an ideological agenda, misrepresenting risk and utilizing hyperbole" because I "hyped" the deaths of four Californian women who used RU-486, the abortion pill.

Unhingedness all around us. Some nutball drove his truck through an anti-war display of crosses down at Camp Cindy Sheehan. Nice to see the far Left finally outraged about the desecration of crosses. Don't seem to recall their outrage about this or this or this, though. Or, of course, this. *** Update: A closer look... Read More
A few weeks ago, I spoke to conservatives at the Young America's Foundation annual student conference about immigration and national security.

The state and federal probe follows... Read More
Ted Frank at Overlawyered has an update on the ridiculous case of the woman who cried "racism!" and sued Southwest Airlines because an airline attendant said "Eenie, meenie, minie, moe; pick a seat, we gotta go" over the intercom. Really.
The ACLU and other civil libertarians don't seem to mind if a public swimming pool sets aside time for the exclusive use of Muslims. But they'll scream holy hell if a city swimming pool enforces a dress code that requires everyone, including Muslims, to wear a swimsuit. Update: Reader Scott L. quips... And Robert Spencer,...

The kill-me-first dress code is dead. It's good news for air marshals who exposed this reckless bureaucratic idiocy last December. Via the Washington Post: The dress code for federal air marshals has been modified, apparently relegating a fashion spat to the back of the Homeland Security closet. The issue of what the marshals wear when... Read More

Wretchard at... Read More

The Washington Post reports... Read More
You have to scroll all the way down to the 18th paragraph in this front-page Washington Post article, but there it is--an acknowledgement that Cindy Sheehan has changed her account of her first meeting with President Bush, which occurred two months after her son's death in April 2004: Sheehan's shifting account of her meeting with...

Liberals say they want women to be taken seriously in the arenas of government and public policy. They claim they want women to be judged based on their ideas, not their physical appearance.
