Last week, we launched Twitchy.com -- a ground-breaking Twitter curation/aggregation site staffed 24/7. On Friday, we scored our first Drudge Report link with a Twitchy exclusive story on liberal actress Cher's rampage against conservatives. Our Android mobile app developed by Ed Burns is available here. iPhone and iPad apps will be rolling out shortly. Here's... Read More
Nutroots hero Michael Moore sent the state of Connecticut a boycott threat and demanded that voters there recall Joe Lieberman over health care. His Tweet: One itty-bitty problem: Connecticut has no recall mechanism. In fact, as Caleb Howe explains: Beclowned!
Photoshop: Another Black Conservative Michael Moore: Champion of the working man...except when hiring his own film crew. Hire as he says, not as he hires. (Hat tip - JWF)
The left-wing propagandist Michael Moore is working on his next project -- a documentary about America's financial collapse. He's trolling Daily Kos and Twitter in search of whistleblowers, and has posted a solicitation on his website. I think it's fairly safe to assume he won't be grilling Barney Frank, Maxine Waters, Franklin Raines, Chris Dodd,... Read More
Sickos.
Oh, what lovely conditions we have to look forward to should Hillary Clinton and Michael Moore get their way: Record numbers of Britons are travelling abroad for medical treatment to escape the NHS - with 70,000 patients expected to fly out this year. And by the end of the decade 200,000 "health tourists" will fly... Read More

Henry Gomez at Babalu Blog led an anti-socialist blogburst this week to counter Michael Moore's anti-American, pro-Cuban health care crockumentary. Claudia 4 Libertad strikes back: Ask any Cuban who has recently left the island (because they can’t talk freely about this inside of Cuba) about their health care system and they will tell you that...

We put up our latest Hot Air Vent, tackling Sicko, on YouTube. You can watch here: Variety reported yesterday that Moore won't debate Tom Delay on ABC News. He was originally scheduled to debate former Rep. Billy Tauzin: Delay titled his blog post, "Sicko is Scared-o." Looks like Moore isn't the only one running scared.... Read More
Out with Sicko. In with Pinko. Cuban bloggers strike back.
Anti-communist blogger Babalu reworks Michael Moore's Sicko logo--and he and his anti-Castro blog mates will be doing special Sicko blogging next week. Don't miss it.
Crockumentarian Michael Moore heads to the Beltway. Time for a reality check-up.
Michael Moore is in Washington today for a screening of his crockumentary, Sicko. What's alarming is not his pre-school level of comprehension about the health care market and pharmaceutical industry--but the fact that so many share and swallow his uninformed views. The NYPost's Kyle Smith has a devastating review here. An excerpt: Regardless of whether... Read More
Cuba is decrying the "censorship" of crockumentarian Michael Moore. Yeah, Cuba is decrying censorship: No, this is what the "imperial philosophy of censorship" looks like. Independent journalists imprisoned in Cuba:
Michael Moore is playing martyr to full effect in advance of the premiere of his latest crockumentary effort. He reportedly faces a US Treasury Department "probe" for taking ailing Sept. 11 rescue workers to Cuba for a segment in his upcoming health-care documentary "Sicko." Posted on his website this morning: The message goes on to... Read More

Jules Crittenden discovers a left-wing war plan--from Michael Moore.
Lifter? On Tuesday, Michael Moore published a much-heralded "letter to disheartened conservatives." He was so proud of his manifesto that he turned it into a petition--which now has more than 17,000 signatures. It goes on like this: Dear Conservatives and Republicans, I, and my fellow signatories, hereby make these promises to you: 1. We will... Read More
I'm hanging it up for the night, er, morning. Unlike Michael Moore in 2004, however, I will not be staying in bed for three days in a catatonic state. I will not need PEST shock therapy. I will not move to Australia. A moonbat reader e-mailed a taunt earlier this evening: The GOP lost. Conservatism... Read More
The New York Times tries to temper the Democratic exuberance it has been stoking for weeks. Flashback to Oct. 21: And now, Nov. 7: In most midterm elections, an out-of-power party picking up, say, 14 seats in the House and five seats in the Senate could call it a pretty good night. But for Democrats... Read More
John Hinderaker notes Victor Davis Hanson channeling Unhinged: The Democrats have not elected congressional majorities in 12 years, and they've occupied the White House in only eight of the last 26 years. The left's current unruliness seems a way of scapegoating others for a more elemental frustration - that they can't gain a national majority... Read More

(Click on image for full-size PDF, page 5): Bush-is-bloodthirsty verse? Check.... Read More
Michael Moore issues threats. A moonbat slips into Fox News. Ace rips the Times, which heralds the non-existent "irate moderate." Cynthia whines (scroll down for video and more video in tears), Neal Boortz rejoices, and we pay tribute to the crackpot from Georgia. So long, sister:

***scroll for updates*** After the 2004 election, so many American liberals came down with depression that medical professionals coined a new phrase for their unhinged condition: post-election selection trauma (or PEST). One wonders what malady Canadian liberals will contract after they lose at the polls in today's election. Meddling Michael Moore is already in the... Read More

Durbinization alert: Tons of readers are e-mailing me about NBC News anchor Brian Williams' comments tonight in which he apparently compared the Founding Fathers to modern-day terrorists.

They just won't give up. When Bush-bashers have no substantive criticisms to make, they resort to Michael Moore's "My Pet Goat" strategy.

(Correction:... Read More

Chalk it up to sleep deprivation, but I honestly feel a wee bit sorry for John Edwards.

The Hollywood activist Laurie David, the wife of Larry... Read More
