If you're a conservative writer who dares to point out the downside of government policies that loosened lending standards for first-time minority homebuyers, you're a RAAAACIST. (See, for example, here and here.) But if you're the New York Times wanting to point out how George W. Bush's minority home ownership pandering is responsible for the... Read More
It started long before September 11. It started long before W. Never forget: Memorial stone at Lockerbie, Scotland Arlington National Cemetery The Lockerbie Cairn, through its 270 blocks of red Scottish sandstone, memorializes the 270 lives lost in the terrorist attack on the United States when Pan Am flight 103 was bombed Dec. 21, 1988,...

I've obtained documents sent to a reader in response to his FOIA request regarding the creation of Barack Obama's Change.gov website. It gives you the rest of the story. You'll recall last month that I blogged several questions about the propriety of allowing the perpetual Obama campaign to use a .gov domain name for what... Read More
Christmas wish.
Click here for a photo slideshow of 4-year-old Hannah Garman of Lancaster County, Pa., who was diagnosed with a rare, incurable brain tumor in October. Hannah's mother died of cancer two years ago. Hannah has a Christmas wish and her community is spreading the word: Send her a card. Day by Day's Chris Muir sent... Read More
California AG Jerry Brown promised to uphold the will of the people. Then the anti-Prop. 8 mob reared its ugly head. So, now he's changed his mind. Feel the power of the rainbow-colored fist: More on his brief from LAT: It is the attorney general's duty to defend the state's laws, and after gay rights... Read More
Reader Chris: "Has anyone made a dog chew-toy in the shape of a crap sandwich? Maybe put TARP in big letters on it. I figure dogs and dung beetles are the only ones that would actually enjoy a crap sandwich (oddly enough, I think some CEOs and many politicians would fit into either the dog... Read More
Well, what else did you expect? The crooked corruptocrat governor of Illinois broke his silence and declared his complete and absolute innocence. He's clean as a whistle -- and he's got "personal knowledge" of it. I think I heard Mrs. Blago chiming in: $%^&@! yeah, he's innocent. Pukeworthy: Blago's lawyer playing the kiddie card. "He's...

Some of us saw through Hank Paulson before Crap Sandwich passed. On September 24, I warned about the myriad reasons Hank Paulson needed to be contained. Congress didn't listen. Neither did many conservatives who blindly trusted the Naked Emperor. For those who insist no one could see it coming, well, um, you were wrong. Welcome... Read More
"We as a news organization feel it’s more important than ever to hold the government accountable."
Speaking of lawsuits: The Naked Emperor Hank Paulson and his Treasury Department refuse to respond to Freedom of Information Act requests from Fox Business Network concerning the use of bailout funds. So much for the transparency Paulson pledged to deliver before Congress handed him his crap sandwich. Good for FBN: FOX Business Network (FBN) has... Read More
John Boehner just issued a statement expressing dismay at President Bush's UAW bailout. He called the use of TARP funds for the bailout "regrettable:" “The action today is disappointing news for autoworkers and taxpayers, who deserve better -- particularly from their Congress, which essentially punted on this difficult issue and is gearing up to move...

"I am no more than a college guy."
Ahmed Mohamed, one half of the Goose Creek two, received the maximum sentence yesterday for creating a jihad video that was to be used by Muslim "martyrs" fighting American soldiers in Arab countries. He and his apologists still insist on painting Mohamed as a regular college guy. The judge didn't buy it. Good: Former University... Read More
He already wrote his epitaph. The $17.4 billion bailout he just announced drives the final nail in his coffin. Stuart Varney calls it "a punt with conditions." The conditions are non-binding. It's an expensive joke on taxpayers. Hurling my shoe. *** Disloyalopp at Twitter writes: "Kabuki Bailout Th. Act III - 'Deranged Warlord, grasping at... Read More
My column today responds to the latest attempt by the Lindh family to drum up sympathy for their convicted Taliban helper son. Bill Roggio: "Given what he could have been charged with, he should consider his 20 years a gift. Instead, he is made out to be a victim." *** No mercy for Jihad Johnny... Read More
Sorry for the light blogging. I'm in bed after getting hit with the same awful bug that sent my son to the ER on Monday and behind on filing my syndicated column for tomorrow. Just one of those days! Got a couple of posts for you in a bit. Talk amongst yourselves.
Bill's bills.
After years of pressing the Clintons to disclose their foundation funders, the time has come. As part of Hillary's Secretary of State deal with Barack Obama, Bill Clinton has finally coughed up his donor list. The contributors' list was published today on the Clinton Foundation site here. We already knew the Saudis were funding Billy... Read More
Very sad to hear of the passing of conservative giant Paul Weyrich. Rob Bluey at the Heritage Foundation, which Weyrich co-founded, has the announcement. For those who didn't know, Weyrich had a spinal injury that left him in constant pain and confined to a wheelchair. The physical limitations, however, could not keep him from his... Read More
I'm scheduled to appear on Fox & Friends at around 8:15am Eastern-ish this morning. See ya there!
Heads finally roll.
Finally, something more than a slap on the wrist. Lead Ohio government snooper Helen Jones-Kelley resigned from her job and two of her cohorts were canned as a result of their plundering through Joe the Plumber's records. Good. Glad to see some heads roll. Before the news came down, Glenn Reynolds and I had a... Read More
Sorry.
If you've been following this blog for a while, you are familiar with my legal battle over a video I created criticizing thug singer Akon's lewd on-stage behavior with an underage girl. We won that legal battle. Akon "apologized" in a song called "Sorry" -- and then went on to engage in even more thuggish... Read More
For those of you who are naturalized Americans, and who take the oath of citizenship seriously, this item will make your blood boil.
We're porked.
In response to Operation Three Little Piggies, reader/Photoshopper George of Elegant Memories sends along his submission. My favorite so far. Keep 'em coming. Oink, oink, oink: *** I agree with commenter Tre: "That’s not an accurate picture. It should show three large piglets try to suckle from an emaciated sow." *** Here's how Toyota is... Read More
Watch out. Maybe they should just stay home and play Sock and Awe.
Chicago boyz.
Ah, the Chicago way. So: Governor Blago appoints Obama AG nominee Eric Holder to investigate corruption. Holder receives $300,000 for his legal services. Corruption probe finds no wrongdoing. And, oops, Holder neglects to mention all this on his AG questionnaire. See the questionnaire for yourselves here. Before Eric Holder was President-elect Barack Obama's choice to... Read More
The women of Blago-gate.
Meet Patty, Rita, and Anita. My column today profiles the women of Blago-gate. Meanwhile, Barack Obama is acting like a girl when asked blunt questions about the scandal. Allah's got the vid. Take a cue from the ladies of Crook County and toughen up, buttercup. One more update: Blago's getting ready to spill the beans.... Read More
Top Conservatives on Twitter have launched a new action project targeting the "three little piggies" -- UAW President Ron Gettelfinger, GM CEO Rick Wagoner, and Chrysler CEO Robert Nardelli. I know I've got a lot of fabulous Photoshoppers out there. This one sounds fun. So go and check out Operation Three Little Piggies here and... Read More
Clubby.
President Bush and the Democrats are happily hammering out the final details of the UAW bailout. The union fatcats are laughing all the way to the...golf course. Their gold-plated golf course. Oh, wait, President Bush forgot to mention it. And while everyone's blabbering about "concessions," here's a question: If the auto CEOs have to give... Read More
"I've abandoned free-market principles to save the free-market system." -- George W. Bush Stop me before I hurl a shoe.
I noted early and often that the government's message to thrifty Americans over the last year has been: Stop saving. Start spending. Fools! The Ant and the Grasshopper fable has been turned on its head. The Federal Reserve's move to slash interest rates to nothing is another nail in thrift's coffin. Pay your bills on... Read More
Watch it on YouTube! Writes National Post's Kelly McPharland: "As the Keynesian revival sweeps the policy establishment, here's a fine antidote. It's a video on the Keynesian myths behind the global push to crank up government spending and the size of government to stimulate the economy. In less than 8 minutes, Dan Mitchell, a Senior...

Mileage may not vary.
First, they hand us our Obama-approved tire gauges. Next, they police our odometers. Fresh from North Carolina, here's the latest Nanny State proposal: Monitoring our odometers and taxing us accordingly. Rea
Me, myself, and I.
An impromptu flub would be one thing. But Obama Education Secretary-designate -- and Harvard grad -- Arne Duncan was reading from a prepared text. Guess they teach inventive grammar at Haaaaahvahd. Snort.
Arne + Obama + Annenberg + Everyday Math = Same old, same old.
Arne Duncan. Barack Obama. The Annenberg challenge: E.M. Zanotti connects the dots. I'll add one more dot: University of Chicago Everyday Math. It's the favored curriculum of Arne Duncan's schools. It's the corruption of math education in America, as I've reported to you many times over the last year. This crap math is a good... Read More
Christmas cheer.
Photo via Soldier's Angels Germany Finally, some good news to report. Earlier this month, I noted the awful plight of Linda Ferrara, the soldier's mom whose blankets for the troops and tons of other homemade charitable items were stolen by soulless jerks. The update on an outpouring of good will and donations: Update: Donations for... Read More
Scroll down for updates... What part of N-O doesn't the Bush administration understand? Two headlines this morning: Majority of Public Opposes Auto Rescue Poll Finds Most Blame Industry for Problems, Believe Failure Won't Hurt Economy Administration says it's still working on bailout We will pay a heavy price for the obstinacy of a lame duck....

David Burge of Iowahawk marks five years on the Internet. Thank you for five fabulous years of the most superlative satire in the blogosphere! Make sure to click that link for greatest hits.
Taking care of sick son. Back later. Talk amongst yourselves.
Hey, how's that $1.6 billion American-taxpayer-funded Merida Initiative to control crime and chaos in Mexico working out? Not so well. Not so well. A bad situation keeps getting worse: U.S. anti-kidnap expert kidnapped in Mexico Mexican gunmen have kidnapped a U.S. security consultant who negotiated the release of dozens of kidnap victims in Latin America....

Obama made it official this afternoon, announcing Carol Browner as his designated energy czar along with other "green" nominees. If fiscal conservatives, sound science advocates, and businesses don't raise a stink about Browner's crooked background, they deserve everything that's coming to them.
Sins of omission.
Fred R. Shapiro is a Yale historian. He compiles an annual "memorable quotes of the year" list and has publishes the "Yale Book of Quotations." MSM outlets love Shapiro's lists. Shapiro, you see, is an admitted liberal historian. And the omissions on his authoritative list of quotes are revealing. Topping the list are quotes from... Read More
You can catch me on Neil Cavuto's show around 4:30pm Eastern-ish to talk about Bush and the mocking media's shoe shuffle.
"Not everyone has to believe the same things." Or do they?
I've blogged several times about how the anti-Prop. 8 mob hounded the El Coyote restaurant in Los Angeles over the $100 donation of its longtime manager, who happens to be a practicing Mormon. Now, read this -- a closer look at how the mob ruined the manager's life: A life thrown into turmoil by $100... Read More
It's the PC time of year...
Rudolph Derangement Syndrome I know. It's too early on a Monday for Grinches. These people are so tiresome and joyless, they aren't worth mustering up outrage over -- just pity. Pity the Rudolph-basher: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was almost grounded at Murrayville Elementary School this week after a parent complained about the classic Christmas song’s... Read More
Reason number 99,786 I'm glad I'm not a New Yorker: The Democrat governor is proposing a tax on non-diet sodas -- along with a bevy of other tax hikes -- to cure the state's economic ills. Indigestion: Lawhawk has more on the NY guv's planned spending binge.
"You fight like a woman."
Har. Thanks to Doug TenNapel on Twitter for the reminder. Austin Powers didn't duck as fast as President Bush, but he was quick with the return insult. Would have been grand to see Bush tell the Iraqi journalist he fought/threw like a girl:
Time to light up the switchboards again.
Hey, maybe it's beginning to dawn on them that no really does mean no. Maybe, it's beginning to dawn on President Bush that the public is sick of bailout-palooza. Or maybe his lawyers need extra time trying to justify committing an illegal act by siphoning off TARP funds for the automakers. Whatever the case, it's... Read More
As I'm sure you've heard, a suspicious arson struck Sarah Palin's home church in Wasilla. There were several women working on crafts to donate to needy families for the holidays. Ed has video here. Reader Pat from Team Sarah sends info about a fundraiser to help the church, which suffered upwards of $1 million in... Read More
An unhinged Iraqi journalist fulfills the dream of every MSNBC anchor and NYTimes editorial columnist by throwing his shoes at President Bush during an impromptu news conference in Baghdad. Watch. Thankfully, President Bush was not hurt. *** Snort. Patterico writes: "I think I heard that Iraqi journalist scream 'Don't tase me, bro!' as he got... Read More
The Wall Street Journal calls the rapidly expanding Obama stimulus plan "meatier." Meatier? I think they mean crappier. We've graduated from Crap Sandwich to Crap Super Stuffed Sub. The stimulus boondoggle went from $300 billion to $500 billion to $600 billion to $1 trillion in less than a month. Give me your over/under that it'll... Read More
Toughen up, sweetie.
Awwwww. Rahm Emanuel can't stand the heat. So, he's blaming the media. ABC News says he's "beet red" and "pissed" that he can't go anywhere without someone asking question about his role in Blago-gate. It's a hard-knock life: (link) Toughen up, sweetie. You're from Chicago. Remember? *** Meantime, Blago's chief of staff resigned. But Blago's... Read More
