The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Ace Spanks Weigel

Spanks him hard over his defense of Alex Sink. Here’s the question: Why is it so important to be fair to Alex Sink? Oh, because Alex Sink is a Democrat. The media must be fair to Democrats. The media must never assist Republicans in “swiftboating” Democrats. Alex Sink made a gaffe — a clear, obvious gaffe […]

In Which @AceOfSpadesHQ Becomes a First Amendment Cause Célèbre

One June 4, 2012, Ace published a blog post that began, “I’m writing a post about what’s happened to Ali Akbar.” That post was cited by Brett Kimberlin as “evidence” that Ace was part of a vast conspiracy. Now, it’s like a latter-day Dreyfuss case: Convicted bomber Brett Kimberlin’s federal lawsuit against bloggers and journalists […]

Liars Gotta Lie, Failures Gotta Fail

Thanks to The Lonely Conservative for inspiring the headline: I have just seen a motion to dismiss Brett Kimberlin’s ludicrous federal RICO suit — Kimberlin v. the Universe, et al. — as regards the defendants whom Kimberlin has failed to serve, and this motion includes the following beautiful words: Plaintiff Has Failed to Serve Anonymous […]

Ten Years of AOSHQ Awesomeness

Ten Years of @AceofSpadesHQ, with Integrity Like Paul F***ing Anka! http://t.co/s9VD6dsJrn #tcot — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) December 30, 2013 Back when I was working the national desk at the Washington Times, I’d read Ace of Spades and say, “Wow. That looks like fun. He’s writing about politics and making dirty jokes. I could do […]

In Which @AceOfSpadesHQ Expresses an Unexpected Distaste for Blood

Anyone who ever says anything that offends any group should be murdered. @AceofSpadesHQ @gmaslsk @SonnyBunch @BuzzFeed — Yes, Nick Searcy!

Ace Hates Him Some Spider-Man

Our hero battles an evil franchise that possesses sinister powers of luring dumb 13-year-old boys to the local multiplex: Apparently they’re making so much money with bad Spider-Man movies they’ve already greenlit sequels for 2016 and 2018. I guess that’s the ultimate in movie properties — if you can make $750 million with a bad movie, […]

Idiot Liberal Sees Feel-Good Story, Decides We Need Moral Improvement

Make A Wish Foundation Gives 5-Year-Old Leukemia Survivor His Dream: Being Batman for a Day Awww! You would think everyone’s natural sympathy would overwhelm their critical capacity, but fear not: Idiot Liberal™ is here! Happy for #SFBatKid, but can’t help but wonder if this would happen for a kid who isn’t white. Let’s put energy […]

The Shocking (But Actually Predictable) Stupidity of ObamaCare Bureaucrats

Ace of Spades gave the “Flaming Skull” alert to a quote from a Washington Post article about the ObamaCare botch that had been included in a summary by Megan McArdle at Bloomberg. On Twitter last night, Ace seemed genuinely astonished by this. But really, who had any illusions that a bunch of liberal bureaucrats were […]
