Boston Bombing Speculation

| April 16, 2013

After a full day of thinking over the events of yesterday, I believe I know who perpetrated the terrible bombing in Boston, and just as importantly, why. I believe the evidence will ultimately show that the bombing was carried out by agents of the Amanda Marcotte Uterine Liberation Front (AMULF), in a clearly successful effort […]

Quote of the Day, the “You Didn’t Build That” Edition

| July 27, 2012

I’d lately been meaning to dig this one up from the archives, prompted by recent campaign developments, but I’ve been busy.* Fortunately, Instapundit and his readers deliver: Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work […]

Naming (Un)conventions

| July 9, 2012

Smitty over at The Other McCain notes that it might, just might, be a bad idea to name your kid(s) randomly. Throwing darts at a map, pulling Scrabble letters out of a bag, and picking names out of the police blotter section of the newspaper are all recipes for massive failure. Do you really want […]

One might be tempted to think that of all countries, Germany would be the one with a heightened sense of toleration and accommodation of Jewish religious rites. OK, perhaps not. Mark Steyn: A German court has banned the circumcision of boys for religious reasons: The regional court in Cologne, western Germany, ruled that the “fundamental […]

There’s a word for that.

Georgetown co-ed: Please pay for us to have sex … We’re going broke buying birth control: Craig Bannister at CNSNews.com did the math — and discovered that these co-eds, assuming they’re using the cheapest possible contraception, must be having sex about three times a day every day to incur that kind of expense. If you […]

Quote of the Day

Ace nails it: This aspect of the Paul agitation — seeking power without going through the bothersome step of ever securing permission — infuriates me. It’s always these games with rigging polls, caucuses, straw polls, etc. There’s an arrogant contempt of democracy here. “Infuriates” is the right word for it. The most rabid followers of […]

Marco Rubio, Birthers, Citizenship, and Presidential Eligibility

| October 22, 2011

So, color me shocked, the Washington Post ran a hit piece against Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL). Weak and easily refuted, the only thing surprising about the story is that they chose to run it now instead of waiting until he becomes a presidential contender, which he surely will be some day.* The story wasn’t terribly […]

The fact that the former General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union now controls the “.eco” top-level domain should tell you everything you need to know about the modern environmentalist movement. Green on the outside, red on the inside.

Inside the Mind of the Far Left Fringe

| July 25, 2011

There’s a saying that’s floated around for a few years — I wish I could properly attribute it — that states, roughly, “those on the Right think the Left is wrong, while those on the Left think the Right is evil.” Nowhere is this more evident than at the online sewer populated by the fringiest […]

I beg to differ.

Burger King CEO Bernardo Hees sort of put his foot in his mouth while speaking of his days in Britain, saying: … there were few distractions to put him off his studies. “The food is terrible and the women are not very attractive.” Having never been over there, I can’t speak to the quality of […]
