So, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has a new blog called "Give 'Em Hell, Harry." You can leave comments here. I'd suggest asking Sen. Reid about this story in one of his hometown newspapers, the Las Vegas Review Journal: The money that led to the indictment this week of two Las Vegas pastors and... Read More
John Fund demonstrates why I rarely tune in to network prime-time TV anymore: The libs are using the airwaves to "soften up the country for Hillary."
Via Editor and Publisher: The Inquirer piece requires registration. Here's an excerpt:
You know those New Orleans cops caught looting in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina? Well, according to a New Orleans police spokesman, they weren't looting. They were, well, let's let him explain: Snort. *** Previous: The New Orleans police meltdown Katrina: Can law and order be retored? Katrina: "You loot, I shoot"

Q: What do you get when you wrap the anti-Bush race card in tinfoil? A: Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee blaming the botched Hurricane Katrina response on "minority votes being suppressed." Seriously. Marc Morano has details.
...for Kathleen Blanco. Why? Because she asked them. The Anchoress is fuming. So is Laura Lee Donoho. Ditto that. *** More: The Therapist is not laughing.
***scroll for updates*** After a valiant, hard-fought battle, 9/11 family member Debra Burlingame and countless other Americans who joined her have won the battle to protect Ground Zero from the Blame America crowd.

This morning, Washington will be engaged in more finger-pointing sessions between the feds and La. Gov. Kathleen Blanco. But keep your eye on New Orleans and the unfolding debacle over the meltdown of the local police. As noted yesterday, superintendent Eddie Compass abruptly resigned. If he and mayor Ray Nagin think that will end scrutiny... Read More
My latest column on the Democratic dumpster diving campaign by two of Sen. Chuck Schumer's former opposition research staffers, who abused Maryland GOP Lt. Gov. Michael Steele's Social Security number to obtain his private credit report, is up. (Thanks to Hugh Hewitt for coining the scandal name.) Excerpt: The New York Times has yet to... Read More
I'm scheduled to appear on Fox News Channel's O'Reilly Factor tonight with my investigative blog partner Brian Maloney to talk about our reporting on Air America. It'll be old hat for readers of our blogs, but we're glad for the opportunity to bring the story into the mainstream. Update: Video at The Political Teen. ***... Read More
Couple of items: 1) The New Orleans superintendent of police is resigning in advance of planned tribunals to investigate the alleged mass desertion of hundreds of cops in Katrina's wake. It's about time we saw some local heads roll. Nagin should be next. 2) Michael Brown's testimony before Congress is receiving some rave reviews. Some... Read More

Some sufferers of Bush Derangement Syndrome have grown tired of Fourth Reich analogies. They've Moved On to embracing NY Rep. Charlie Rangel's comparison of President Bush to Bull Connor. (Audio at The Political Teen in case you missed it last week.) Fellow Democrats have done nothing to distance themselves from Rangel's insane remarks. In today's... Read More
Never take the words they print at face value. Ever. You've probably already been doing that for a long time. But now you have the Times' own editors affirming that even they don't take their writers' words as factual assertions--but instead read them as "figurative references." Check out the Editor's Note today explaning away a... Read More
There's lots of buzz about last night's CBS News report on former/not-so-former FEMA director Michael Brown's status: Also significant are Brown's reported admissions of screwing up the federal response: Brown also said Monday he should have sought faster help from the Pentagon after Hurricane Katrina hit, and accused state and local officials of constant infighting...

There's one photo I took at Saturday's anti-war rally that I wanted to highlight separately. Take a look: This Working Assets-sponsored billboard truck, emblazoned with a quote attributed to GOP strategist Grover Norquist, was parked off of Constitution Ave. As raving moonbats passed by, they gasped and booed at the horrific budget-slashing sentiments of the...

Just read it. (Hat tip: Tony in Boulder.)
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... Read More
I spent the afternoon at Sheehanapalooza in D.C. under overcast skies, in a haze of hemp-scented paranoia, steeped with fetid Bush hatred. Am uploading a bunch of photos of moonbats in action at my Flickr site. Here's a sample: The face of the anti-war movement: YEARRRGH! A stylish member of Code Pink Grieving anti-war mom... Read More

You're going to love this. This morning, I posted a follow-up item on DemCreditScam, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee's dirty trick against Maryland GOP Lt. Gov. Michael Steele.

Lots of readers have been e-mailing me about Dyn-O-Gel, an absorbent material that can apparently be used to slow down hurricanes. I thought it was a joke. But apparently, it is real and is just one in an entire line of "environmental absorbent products." Who knew? Background on Dyn-O-Gel's limitations here.
Pork Jerky, Alaska-style Glenn Reynolds, N.Z. Bear and the rest of the pork-busting blogosphere are doing a fabulous job shedding light on all the dripping fat in Washington. I think Alaska GOP Rep.

Just awful: According to AP, the fire may have been tied to evacuees' oxygen tanks: Something for disaster preparedness officials to think about in planning mass evacuations involving patients with medical equipment. Is there... Read More
Via Paul Mirengoff at Power Line, more bad news: Paul points to an excellent and depressing column on Jones and other woeful Bush decisions by the Washington Times' Diana West:
The Washington Post editorializes about the Dems' dirty trick against Maryland GOP Lt. Gov. Michael Steele. The editorial board can't bring itself to just condemn the act on its own without also mentioning that Republicans do bad things, too. But at least the paper has weighed in on the matter: Meanwhile, the Washington Times reports... Read More

My investigative blog partner Brian Maloney... Read More
Lt. Gen. Russel Honore has inspired the Stuck on Stupid blog, which its founder says will be devoted to covering MSM reporters who deserve Honore-type lashings.
