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! #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! (@yesnicksearcy) December 20, 2013 @OkieMuskogee33 @yesnicksearcy @gmaslsk @SonnyBunch @BuzzFeed Murder's too good for them. What are you, soft on WordCrime? — SquatchPride69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) December 20, 2013 Just in case you missed The Big Thing on […]

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 […]

Slimy Dishonest Scumbag Todd Purdum Compares ObamaCare to Brown v. Board

Ace of Spades dismantles the preposterous nonsense whereby Todd S. Purdum tries to blame Republicans for the failure of ObamaCare. It’s kook stuff: “calculated sabotage by Republicans,” a phrase redolent of Stalin-era Soviet propaganda blaming problems on “saboteurs,” and then totally throwing down the rhetorical gauntlet: The GOP faithful then kept up their crusade past […]
