Scofflaws and Submarine Sandwiches

ask yourself why Sarah Palin guesting on NBC’s Today (Toady?) Show is getting exponentially MORE press coverage than this story? Continue reading

A Streetcar Named Reform

The Supreme Court has (predictably) expanded police powers broadly, ruling broadly in a case involving strip searches and jail visits, to expand all police’s rights to strip searches (including cavity searches) of anyone for just about any violation — including, as Justice Breyer notes in his dissent, a traffic offense:… Continue reading

NPR Screws the Pooch

Anything about Foster’s financial fostering of the creepy Daily Caller, whose Tucker Carlson and his soulmate Andrew Breitbart were working in tandem at the time of the latter’s demise? No, but we DO get this: Friess also makes frequent calls for more civility in politics, and more unity. Continue reading

Satan’s Big Week

“This is the electronic equivalent of someone writing a letter to the editor,” John Coffee, a professor at Columbia Law School, said in an interview. “You are rewarded by publication, not by payment.” Continue reading

Putting the ‘cad’ in and taking the ‘bra’ off of ‘Abracadabra’

The “feminist” voice denouncing Bill Maher’s “misgyny” is one of the most misogynistic groups, arguably, to ever put on their culottes one shaved leg at a time.

we need to focus our anger on gutless state legislators who talk tough and pass stupid and dangerous laws against women, against public safety, against science and education, against regulation and voting rights, against common sense and reason … Continue reading

The Fundamental Madness of Eddie Munster

The notion, implausible and fantastic on its face, is that the “free market” — which is to say, untrammeled greed — will benevolently lift all of Mankind on the backs of selfish Supermen — the Howard Roarkes and John Galts — who will benevolently move industry and civilization forward because it pleases them to so do.

‘Dumb Frankenstein’ Premieres, Starring Sarah Palin

Yes, the shocking lack of respect for the dead is, perhaps, a hallmark of Breitbartia, but one would think that the corpse would be allowed to cool before “reanimating” it, in a sort of club-footed attempt to mimic the iconic “Hope” poster of President Obama by Shepard Fairey. Continue reading
