Piers Morgan: ‘What a Load of Fatuous Nonsense You Speak, Touré, Don’t You?’

OK, I almost never watch CNN and hadn’t previously had a high opinion of Piers Morgan, but on the other hand, I’d never heard of this Touré character at all, until I saw the Breitbart headline: MSNBC’s Touré Has Epic Race-Baiting Meltdown On CNN So I wondered what the heck this was about.

The Riot Ideology

Yesterday, I mentioned Fred Siegel’s The Future Once Happened Here in connection with the Trayvon Martin case. Siegel’s book is one of those timeless classics — like Christopher Lasch’s The Culture of Narcissism and Thomas Sowell’s The Vision of the Anointed — that I frequently recommend as guides to understanding important social phenomena more deeply.

No Mohawks for Jefferson

Longtime commenter T.R. Sterling sends along this news item as fair warning for my redheaded son: Derrill Rockwell told police he grabbed his rifle, the .22-caliber he kept handy to kill rodents around the house, about 5 a.m. Oct. 5 and walked outside to confront it.

I’d Be All: “Did You Say Something About College Transcripts?”

by Smitty Via Hot Air’s Quotes of the Day: “Following a front-page Wall Street Journal article Thursday reporting that employees at Bain Capital, Romney’s former private-equity firm, were allowed to invest their retirement money in companies the firm acquired through a special share class, the Obama camp is seeking Romney’s old tax returns to see […]

Olbermann’s Career: The First Time as Tragedy, the Second Time as Farce

Huffy self-righteous liberalism is not a rare commodity, and the supply greatly exceeds the demand, so Keith Olbermann’s belief that he had cornered the market on progressive bombast was bound to lead him to a sorry end sooner or later: For nearly a year now, Al Gore and Joel Hyatt have been building their liberal cable news […]

Are Nancy Pelosi And Harry Reid Racists, Or Something?

by Smitty Over at the Daily Caller, I think somebody’s abject, utter, despicable incompetence may be showing:What a gross dereliction of duty. But if you poo-poo the possibility that the Congressional Affordable Care Act (CACA) was a 2,801-page dump taken due to hating a black man in the White House, then you, too, might be […]
