Anatomy of a smear.
Remember Ashley Todd? She was the young Republican hate crimes hoaxer who carved a backwards "B" on her face and tried to blame it on an Obama supporter last fall. I took a lot of crap from from my own commenters for doubting her fishy story straight out of the box. At least you guys... Read More
My column this week: There's no polite way or time to say it: American college and universities have become coddle industries. Big Nanny administrators oversee speech codes, segregrated dorms, politically correct academic departments, and designated "safe spaces" to protect students selectively from hurtful (conservative) opinions—while allowing mob rule for approved leftist positions (textbook case: Columbia...

Nancy Pelosi's daughter, Alexandra, is getting a lot of attention for her documentary about evangelical Christians, which airs tonight in less than an hour on HBO. Allah has video of her appearance last night on Hannity and Colmes here. She joked that evangelicals refer to HBO as "Hell's Box Office"--a sound-bite-friendly gag line that she... Read More
Mark Gavreau Judge in Christianity Today:
The witch hunt against the Marine who performed "Hadji Girl" continues. Military lawyers are scouring their books for a reason to punish Cpl. Joshua Belile: Look at this "fair and balanced" headline from our "friends" at the London Times:
We name the top five MSM heavy-breathers over at Hot Air. The NY Slimes earned the Number 3 spot (thanks to Sanctuary for the photoshop): Unfortunately, we finished this show before Andrew Sullivan labeled America a "rogue nation" today. Yeah, he did. Someone get him a paper bag. (Hat tip: Allah Pundit) *** Update: Jeff... Read More

Question: Who believes "M.C.?" According to an article in yesterday's New York Times, a young Guantanamo Bay detainee identified as “M.C.” claims he was “suspended from hooks in the ceiling for hours at a time with his feet barely missing the floor, and that he was beaten during those sessions.” M.C. also claims he was...

You know everyone's gonna have one--the winners/losers list. Might as well get started. Feel free to add. Winners: Swift Boat Vets Losers: Lawrence O'Donnell, Chris Matthews, Mary Mapes, insert every other Swift Vet-hating media elitist here Winner: Hillary Clinton Loser: Terry McAuliffe Winner: Zell Miller Loser: Tom Daschle Winner: Florida Gov. Jeb Bush Loser: Florida... Read More
In the LA Times, former blogger Billmon writes that bloggers have sold out. His thesis is that "[a]s blogs commercialize, they are tied ever closer to the mainstream media and its increasingly frivolous news agenda." I was particularly interested in his argument that "a charmed circle of bloggers" is gaining "larger audiences and greater influence,"... Read More
Powerline's servers went down yesterday after they got a Drudge Report link to one of their posts on Forgerygate. I had similar difficulties a few weeks ago, despite the laudable efforts of my web hosting company. The Drudgealanche phenomenon is a wonderful thing to experience but it is also a problem--one that is likely to... Read More
Andrew Sullivan's "pay for my bandwidth" pledge drive has inspired several imitators. The Spoons Experience writes: Laurence Simon kicks off the Give Your Money To Anyone But Andrew Sullivan Project. His goal: to "help make the world a better place (for everyone but Andrew Sullivan)." IowaHawk comments on the high cost of bandwidth: As you... Read More
Apropos of Andrew Sullivan's latest pledge drive to pay for increased bandwidth expenses, Wunderkinder wonders why Sullivan's bandwith is so darn expensive. In an earlier post, Wunderkinder wrote: By comparison, Sullivan raised somewhere around $120,000 from his readers last summer. A previous pledge drive raised $79,020. Sounds like someone's getting ripped off. In other news,... Read More
Via Drudge, we learn that European scientists are trying to grow an affordable AIDS vaccine in genetically-modified plants. You might think this is good news, but not everyone thinks so. So upset are environmentalists in Europe that the crops will probably have to be grown in South Africa, where the threat of sabotage is lower.... Read More
