Theory 2a: #Benghazi-Bimbo Connection

by Smitty Referring to Ann Althouse’s post on the Zombie Bimbo Revival, of course the answer is Hillary. Vanity Fair also stands to gain from the notoriety, and those two own 70% of the poll. However, Monica’s story is the kind of thing that has probably been in the can for a while, waiting for […]

Democrats and the Murder Vote

Ann Althouse was shocked by this quote: “There are thousands of murderers walking around who haven’t been brought to justice…. It’s horrifying.” But how else could Democrats get elected? Jail survey: 7 in 10 felons register as Democrats Maybe somebody should write a book about this . . .  

‘Gender Integration’ = FAIL

This is both hysterically funny and pathetically sad: The Army colonel who wrote an internal email suggesting public affairs officers use photos of “average-looking women” when they need to illustrate stories about female soldiers has stepped down as the leader of an Army study on gender integration. Army spokesman George Wright confirmed on Saturday that […]

Andrew Sullivan’s Psychiatric Evaluation

Ann Althouse calls attention to the latest scientific research by that eminent British physician, Dr. Andrew Sullivan, OB-GYN: “I regard this development as one of the more insidious and anti-constitutional acts of racist vandalism against the American republic in my adult lifetime. Those who keep talking as if there are two sides to this, when […]

Everybody was just horrified by it, and nobody said either (a) that Puerto Rican […]

Occupy Althouse? (The Zero-Sum Error)

There are times when you must choose between gratitude and resentment and, considering how rarely this blog gets linked by Ann Althouse, I’ve decided to be grateful that my thoughts on Professor Erik Loomis provided her and Meade with some laughs. Also, because her post linking my post got linked at Instapundit, I’ll be grateful […]

‘Candyass Blogger’ Update: Free Speech Absolutists Who Banned Mr. Althouse UPDATE: ‘These Are Historical Dildos’

The defense of Professor Erik “I’m a Lumberjack and I’m OK” Loomis is becoming somewhat of a cause célèbre for the progressive community online and in academia. I’m actually working on a much longer piece about this ongoing controversy, based on my own vast experience in saying stupidly offensive stuff that pisses people off. Meanwhile […]

Cecilia Jimenez Unleashes BHO Metaphor

by Smitty Via Althouse, picture worth a thousand words about a topic that has exactly zilch-point-jack worth of originality to offer: Cecilia, of course, was the little old lady who did a special makeover of Jesus. Say what you will of Jimenez’s work. Having been to the Basilica of the Annunciation, which has a full […]
