My vote for most bizarre ballot of 2008 (via Minnesota NPR): More snort-worthy goodness: Allah's disputed ballot cheat sheet.
Pocketa-pocketa-pocketa.
Pocketa-pocketa-pocketa. The car of your future, brought to you by Iowahawk. Tire gauge not included.
Everyone knows about the Fannie/Freddie/Democrat minority lending racket. But as I've pointed out several times over the last year, the Bush administration was also guilty of pandering to the crony racial racketeers and exacerbating the mortgage crisis. (Background here, here, and here.) Steve Sailer digs up another depressing example of how Bush pushed the feds... Read More
"He just started shaking and he collapsed."
Scroll down for updates... Whoa. Attorney General Michael Mukasey collapsed while giving a speech at the Federalist Society meeting in Washington tonight, according to AP and Politico. Apparently, he was still receiving medical treatment on stage at the event as of 15 minutes ago -- 10:30pm Eastern. Say a prayer and stand by for more... Read More
For those of you who are sick of spending money at the movie theater supporting Hollywood libs, there's good news. Tomorrow, Robert Davi's critically acclaimed "The Dukes" opens at the box office. The movie website is here. Lisa dePasquale has a review and profile here. She writes: I had the chance to talk to Davi... Read More
Mall rats.
Democrat Gov. Ed Rendell is going to prop up bankrupt Boscov's department stores -- with your money. $35 million smackeroos, to be exact. How long before California Pizza Kitchen and the Cheesecake Factory and Spencer's Gifts and Chuck E. Cheese get theirs? (Oh, and don't worry. I'm still keeping tabs on the Newspaper Bailout Countdown... Read More
Duh.
The Ohio inspector general has finally concludes the obvious. The question now is: Whose heads will roll? Who will be prosecuted? When will the governor apologize for whitewashing this civil liberties scandal? The report: Duh! Also named as improper snoopers: Assistant agency director Fred Williams and Doug Thompson, a deputy child-support director. Charles said his... Read More
Bipartisan wealth redistribution.
Feel your wallet getting lighter? I repeat again: God save us from bipartisanship. Republicans involved in the deal: Bawling George Voinovich and Kit "Borrow - Spend - Repeat" Bond. Ugh: (link) Like I said last week: They will cave. You will pay.
Angel.
Almost three years ago, I started blogging about beautiful Haleigh Poutre. She's the miracle child who was nearly beaten to death by her barbaric stepfather. Hooked to a ventilator in a comatose state, she was then nearly condemned to death by Massachusetts medical experts and the state's criminally negligent child welfare bureaucracy, which hastily declared...

"Key strategic error."
John McCain's fatal screw-up of the bailout bill was a final nail in the campaign coffin. Glenn Reynolds and I discussed this very point on PJTV yesterday. Now, McCain adviser Douglas Holtz-Eakin admits the gobsmackingly obvious: Their aimless, principle-less lurching on the issue was a "blunder." Via Jeff Poor at the Business and Media Institute:...

American Express did it. Now, it's GMAC's turn to wave the magic wand, rename itself a "bank holding company," and go for its bite of the bailout pie: Another applicant: Protective Life Corporation... Protective Life Corporation (“Protective”) PL announces that it has filed a bank holding company application with the U.S. Federal Reserve Board of... Read More
Same old, same old.
The buzz has Barack Obama tapping Arizona Democrat Gov. Janet Napolitano for DHS Secretary. On the surface, it may seem a promising pick. Napolitano made a few pro-immigration enforcement moves in her state -- including declaring a border security emergency and backing some employer sanctions. She riled the open-borders lobby by signing a bill banning... Read More
You can catch me on Fox & Friends this morning at around 7:50am-ish Eastern. In the meantime, here's something to wake you up: Egad! The Headband is back! It really is 1993 all over again.
Scroll down for updates... So, this is "progress?" eHarmony, a Christian-targeted dating website, gets sued by a gay man demanding that the business match him up with a same-sex partner. The New Jersey Attorney General intervenes on behalf of the gay plaintiff and forces eHarmony to change its entire business model. To be clear: The... Read More
Bigot.
Joy Behar of "The View" has the IQ of a rotten tomato, the manners of an ass, the mouth of a street thug, and the chutzpah to declare that "a lot" of homeschooled children are "demented." I guess we should give thanks that she sits around a table kvetching with other liberal women for a... Read More
Don't feed the troll. It is an abject waste of time, energy, and capital to do otherwise. *** Oogebedy-boogedy!
You can catch me on Neil Cavuto's show today on FNC at around 4:10pm-ish Eastern. (Update: Allah's posted the vid clip at Hot Air.) Or you can catch me on PJTV later today talking about "Conservatism 2.0" with Instapundit Glenn Reynolds.
I had prayed before the election that I wouldn't have to pay one more iota of attention to the pork-filled, cut-and-run smear merchant John Murtha. Our prayers, alas, were not answered. Now, this corruptocrat is trying to hide from justice in the Haditha slander lawsuits: A Marine who sued U.S. Rep. John Murtha for defamation... Read More
Testing, testing...
Site Intelligence Group Testing, testing...1,2,3...Testing... So, al Qaeda bigwig Ayman Zawahiri has insulted Barack Obama as a dishonorable black and a House Negro. (Full transcript and audio at NEFA.) B-b-b-but I thought Obama's election was supposed to change the world's attitudes about America! What happened to "The World Wants Obama?" And I thought only us... Read More
Zoning out free speech.
You can stand in front of a church yelling "Mormon scum," but if you pray in front of a taxpayer-subsidized abortion clinic, watch out. Emily L. e-mails: I thought you might find this interesting. NYC is considering legislation to create a 15 foot buffer zone between abortion protestors and the clinics. The legislation would also... Read More
Hubris.
Behold the hubris of an entrenched Republican congressman shilling for the auto bailout. His name is Rep. Joe Knollenberg (R-Michigan) and you'll be happy to know that he lost his re-election bid. Attention, Republicans obsessed with "re-branding" the party and crafting appealing messages to win back voters. Here's your textbook example of how not to... Read More
My first syndicated column of the week today chronicles the insane rage of the anti-Prop. 8 mob that's not on your newspaper front pages or nightly news. The lawsuits are piling up: "Four Bay Area counties are the latest to join the legal fight to try to stop state Proposition 8, a ban on same-sex... Read More
Cult awareness.
It's the 30-year anniversary of the mass murder/suicide at Jonestown. The toll was chilling: more than 900 lives ended, including 305 innocent children. We should never forget the deadly consequences of the cult of personality. A memorial was unveiled today in Oakland: On the 30th anniversary of the Jonestown disaster Tuesday, organizers of an annual... Read More
The more things change...
Back in March, The New Republic lamented that Democrats could only choose one: Clinton or Obama. How wrong they were. The Obama inner circle now includes: Clintonite Rahm Emanuel as Obama chief of staff... Clintonite Deputy AG Eric Holder as rumored Obama AG... Clintonite lawyer Greg Craig as Obama chief counsel... Clintonite chief of staff... Read More
Alaska's GOP corruptocrat has lost his Senate re-election bid. Shouldn't have taken so long. Not surprisingly, the entrenched, pork-stuffed politician refused to concede tonight: Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska was defeated in his bid for re-election on Tuesday. Mr. Stevens, a Republican and a 40-year incumbent, was trailing his Democratic challenger, Mayor Mark Begich of... Read More
I promised a photo of my son's Pikachu cake from last week. Couldn't have done it without my daughter, who happily provided supplemental icing services when my hand conked out. Not the neatest job in the world, but the birthday boy was happy:
Question: How does a RINO secure a position in the Obama administration? Answer: Bash Rush Limbaugh.
It's on.
The wages of "diversity."
The Hispanic National Bar Association has just sent out a press release gently reminding Barack Obama that he owes them -- and they are not going to let him forget it: HNBA Congratulates President-Elect Barack Obama and Urges Appointment of Hispanics to the Federal Judiciary and Executive Branch WASHINGTON, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Last week,...

"you have a clear constitutional duty..."
One of my favorite conservative heroes in the Senate, GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions, tries to rouse lame duck President Bush from his stupor and urges him to exercise his constitutional duties. It's an exercise in futility, but a good try nonetheless. November 14, 2008 The Honorable George W. Bush President of the United States The... Read More
Well, ain't that interesting: The Democrats have decided to let Joe Lieberman keep his Senate chairmanship. I have a feeling the nutroots aren't going to like this lack of Change: Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, the Democrat-turned-independent from Connecticut, was allowed to keep his chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Tuesday despite... Read More
Bok bok.
I watched as much of the Hill hearings with Barney Frank, Maxine Waters, Naked Emperor Hank Paulson, Ben Bernanke, and Sheila Bair as I could stand. Kabuki theater gives me a headache. Most revealing moments: *When stalwart bailout opponent GOP Rep. Jeb Hensarling pointed out that everyone under the sun was applying for TARP funds... Read More
What a lying crapweasel. Asked about the dedication to RFK assassin Sirhan Sirhan and other "political prisoners" in the Weather Underground's "Prairie Fire" manifesto (first unearthed by investigative Internet journalist Zombie), Bill Ayers denies that it's true -- then goes on to express his "regret" for singling out the killer. He concludes by asserting that... Read More
Three words: Stupid people voted. Lots and lots of stupid people.
Foggy Bottom.
So say The Guardian and Drudge. I'm skeptical, but bracing for the worst. Hmmm... Reader Mark M. writes: "I would rather see Hillary as Sec of State for 4 yrs than on the Supreme Court for life." Where do you think she should take her first diplomatic trip? I vote Tuzla! Photoshop credit: Roscoe Karns
In your face. And other body parts.
Watch gay activists hound Christians in San Francisco's Castro district: Even some left-wing blogs are starting to realize this is bad p.r. for their side. From the YouTube user's description of the confrontation, which got physical: After just singing and worshiping God for a while, Roger decided that we should all hold hands in a... Read More
Borrow, spend, repeat.
I'm tuned to C-SPAN, keeping an eye on the Senate auto bailout/stimulus debates. Maryland Democrat Sen. Barbara Mikulski just wrapped up her pitch for another temporary stimulus gimmick -- short-term tax incentives to car buyers. Unfortunately, she got Missouri GOP Sen. Kit Bond to co-sponsor this $2-3 billion feel-good amendment. The details: The U.S. Congress... Read More
Watch your wallets.
Terrific: Barack Obama, John McCain, and Lindsay Grahamnesty are united in their pledge to "fix up the country." I smell a massive foreclosure prevention program coming on, followed by the McCain-Obama Shamnesty 2.0. ***
Things that make you go "?$#@^&!!!"
Media in the tank for Obama? Duh. Criminal illegal aliens still being caught and released thanks to the deportation abyss? Duh. Immigration chaos still leading to the death of innocent Americans? Duh. Open-borders lobbyists demanding Obama give them the amnesty he promised? Duh. Lindsay Grahamnesty ready to work with Obama on immigration? Duh. Maybe I... Read More
Last week, McCain won the “Least Favorite Person on the Right" poll at Right Wing News. This week, John Hawkins at RWN conducted a follow-up poll on bloggers' "Favorite People On The Right." Sarah Palin blew the competition away. Check out the results here.
A reader e-mails: "I am a very loyal fan of your blog and I appreciate all that you do! Attached is a letter from my bank's chairman Mariner Kemper to Henry Paulson explaining why we refused to be bailed out. I am so proud to be an employed at an institution that stands up to... Read More
Tolerance, L.A.-style.
This story keeps getting more pathetic. Diana West first alerted me to the plight of the El Coyote Mexican Cafe, whose manager donated $100 to the Prop. 8 campaign. A mob of gay marriage activists browbeat her into tears and guilt over the contribution. They threatened the restaurant with boycotts and protests. And now, the... Read More
While Republican strategists and Beltway blowhards convene VIP retreats and meetings and save-the-party parties, the road to GOP redemption starts right now. There is opportunity to be seized right now. There is a line in the sand to be drawn. Right now. The first step toward GOP redemption is to stop the automakers' bailout and... Read More
Of human bondage. Mike Adams reports that a College Republican group's sign criticizing "Obama and Socialism" was banned on campus at Pepperdine University. Reprogramming of the young American mind begins now.
"I'll continue my schooling even if they try to kill me. I won't stop going to school." -- Shamsia, 17, victim of jihadist acid attack in Kabul.
Busy with family today. What are you doing? What's on your minds?
The opponents of Proposition 8, the traditional marriage initiative that passed 52-48 in California, are holding a nationwide protest today. Will they control themselves? Or will we see more blacklisting, harassment, and intimidation? Prop. 8 supporters want to know -- as I've wondered -- where the soul-fixers and healers are:
Sorry for the light blogging. I'm frantically making that Pikachu cake for my birthday boy. Up to my ears in Wilton icing. Those Bakugan thingies arrived in the mail today (just in time!). After my search the other day, I thought of an idea. I'm buying a bunch of Bakugan thingies to donate to military... Read More
Bok bok.
The House held hearings this morning on the bailout debacle. Quite a spectacle. Every member wants his/her 15 minutes of grandstanding fame. It's all well and good to express outrage at the Treasury Department and grill Paulson protege Neel Kashkari now. But if the Chicken Littles had kept their heads on before they handed over...
