by Smitty At Breitbart, emphasis mine: When asked whether it was inappropriate for former SEALs to speak out, as some on the left have alleged, Zinke answered, “If the veterans can’t speak out, who can? I think it’s a duty of every veteran and every citizen to be actively involved in our political process, especially [...]
Is Elizabeth Warren Willing To Go Deeper Than ‘Diving Klaxon’ Kennedy’s ’67 Olds To Win Back ‘His’ Seat? Why, Yes.
by Smitty Via Instapundit, we have a Boston Herald editorial wherein Pseudajawea the Motorcyle Godess tries to say that, because Todd Akin (R) said Something Dumb, and all Republicans think alike, and Scott Brown is (OMG!) a Republican, that Scott Brown is liable for Todd Akin’s comments: “Scott Brown and other Republicans want to pretend [...]
by Smitty I disagree here: How government became a deviant subculture is a story of good intentions gone awry. We tried to avoid government abuse by replacing individual responsibility with detailed rules and objective legal proceedings. Never again would officials play favorites or indulge personal prejudices. Government would be an efficient assembly line. I assert [...]
by Smitty . . .and Barack Obama’s policies screw us relentlessly, then: can he claim 0% unemployment? Just a random thought triggered by this. Terms like ‘expert’, ‘industry’, ‘job’, and ‘worker’ really are watered down these days. Just ask Jeff Goldstein.
by Smitty I can’t force the video to begin at 1:30, but Tommy Chong* serves up the basis for a ‘Bainers’ theme song: Red State: It is well established that Mitt Romney left Bain to go salvage the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. It is also well established that his name remained on some SEC [...]

by Smitty As I was joking on Twitter earlier: Instapundit holding M-16 after bizarre nuclear accident at Oak Ridge shrinks him by 50%: lonelyconservative.com/2012/06/brett-… @rsmccain #SadButTrue — Chris Smith (@smitty_one_each) June 27, 2012 He has also noticed the S.A.L.V.E. project, which can also be purchased in dead tree format here.
When terrorist Brett Kimberlin was convicted of multiple felonies in 1981, he could have been sentenced to 230 years in federal prison. Convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin’s failed attempt to silence bloggers who tell the truth about Kimberlin’s criminality will be the subject of a court hearing Tuesday morning in Montgomery County, Maryland. Kimberlin, who in 1981 [...]
. . . has any event in the history of Western civilization been more significant than the forthcoming publication of Professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds’s The Higher Education Bubble. This 56-page booklet, the 29th in the brilliant Encounter Broadside series, has been breathlessly awaited for months, in expectation that it will revolutionize our nation’s education system. [...]
Rebecca Traister’s Idiocy: Too Late for National Offend a Feminist Week? UPDATE: She Keeps Losing Arguments With the Voices in Her Head
Instpundit brutally pimp-slaps a Washington Post columnist who evidently doesn’t understand that a succubus, by definition, cannot be “sex-averse.” Alas, National Offend a Feminist Week ends on Mother’s Day, and I didn’t see Rebecca Traister’s column (linked at Althouse) until the annual festival of patriarchal oppression had elapsed. Sigh. If only there were some good [...]
Having been raked over the coals on Twitter by a young blogger upset by my curmudgeonly rant, now I find Instapundit categorically disparaging the entire notion of journalism as a profession: It’s pathetic, and embarrassing. And yet they still pretend they belong to some sort of learned profession with special privileges and responsibilities, when really [...]
by Smitty Driscoll links Harsanyi, “Obama supports same-sex marriage, cites states’ rights”: Which begs an obvious question: If Obama has endorsed federalism and believes that states have the right to define marriage, then why doesn’t he support the ability of states to extricate themselves from Obamacare? Why don’t states have the right to dictate their [...]« go back — keep looking »
