You knew there’d be some hiccup with the latest cable news phenomenon, but I wouldn’t have guessed it’d be this: After the network announced that Sarah Palin would host a special Thursday called “Real American Stories” — featuring an interview with LL Cool J, among other celebrities — the rapper hit back on Twitter claiming they […]


Via NRO, Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Ten) goes after the attachment to the health care bill: “Up to now, 15 out of 19 million student loans were private loans, backed by the government,” Alexander says. “Now we’re going to borrow half-a-trillion from China to pay for billions in new loans. Not only will this add to […]


You’d best reconsider: Police said the customer crawled out of his car and into the drive thru window to get his fish sandwich, after slapping the McDonald’s employee in the face. “His Filet-O-Fish was taking too long at 4:30 in the morning,” said South Brunswick Police Detective Sergeant James Ryan to NBCNewYork.

I made the rather silly decision, in retrospect to include the tag “sex clubs” in the Hypocrisy post. Next thing I know, I have a comment asking who David Vitter is. I thought, hmm, “I wonder who this person is?”  Well, I clicked on the link to her site, and it turns out, she runs […]

A February RNC trip to California, for example, included a $9,099 stop at the Beverly Hills Hotel, $6,596 dropped at the nearby […]


This dog really seemed to know what he was doing:


I’ve been weighing whether to post this, as it doesn’t really fit in with most of my blog. Then I remembered that bit about not caring about all that anymore. Below is something I wrote in response to Frost’s famous poem on one of TNC’s threads. I can’t take credit for thinking up the idea […]


Apparently the right to vote is, indeed in the Constitution, contra legendary Emerson professor Mike Brown. According to the greatest legal mind of our time: In addition to energy production, which she called one of her favorite subjects, Palin was focused on getting people out to reverse what she called the leftist direction of the […]


Just checked them out for lunch. They had a new style of chicken on the sample display. Peach with a smokey barbeque sauce. Pretty good, but I don’t know if I could handle a whole burrito of it. The down? The Beef Birria burrito I did order was very, very heavy on rice. All the […]
