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

Our Long National Nightmare Is Over

By which, of course, I mean Monday. It’s now 12:01 a.m. ET Tuesday, and so I kept my vow not to say a word about Re-Coronation Day. Others who chronicled the event now have stains on their pants from the orgasmic gush. Chris Matthews emitted his usual effusion of idiocy, and over on the Third-Place […]

Tee Hee Hee: Stacy’s Cousin Makes Hawkins’s 20 Most Annoying Libs List

by Smitty I should like to meet Maggie Moo some day to assure her that, while bearing her no personal animosity, this blog finds her ideas emblematic of how jacked up her generation and this country are: 18) Meghan McCain: The GOP and Meghan McCain have the same sort of great love we’ve seen between […]

Reading Meghan So You Don’t Have To

– by Wombat-socho The right half of the blogosphere owes an enormous debt of gratitude to Betsy Woodruff, William F. Buckley Fellow at the National Review Institute, for she has done something few of us would have the courage to do. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, for our sake Ms. Woodruff took upon herself the vile, […]

Meghan, You Ignorant Slut

“Last week, I went on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show PoliticsNation to talk about extremism in the Republican Party. As a socially liberal Republican, this happens to be a topic I know a lot about. On the show, I told Sharpton that many Republicans treat me like a freak, especially the extreme-right members of my party. […]

Wake Up Meghan McCain, I Think I’ve Got Something To Say To You

by Smitty We’ll let the Rod Stewart reference die at the title, but really, Meghan: The moderate Republicans, like you and the notorious Brooks, are precisely the reason that Constitutional conservativism has taken so long to re-assert itself. You see, Maggie, you can’t make peace with what is wrong in the name of ‘moderation’.  In […]

Asking the Important Questions: Why Does Gillian Anderson Want Me to Blog About Her Teenage Lesbian Affairs?

Yes, it’s been a week since my last Instalanche and, while I sincerely doubt that Professor Glenn Reynolds would want to encourage such absolutely shameless link-baiting, I’m otherwise mystified as to why any attractive celebrity would make this kind of confession: Gillian Anderson, the actress best known for playing agent Dana Scully on ”The X-Files,” has admitted […]

What America Really Needs Today: Meghan McCain Talking About Her Boobs

There are many important news stories I could be blogging about today. The latest polls show a statistical dead heat in the Alabama and Mississippi GOP presidential primaries. Greece has officially defaulted on its debt. Israel has reportedly delayed a military strike on Iran. My ego tells me that there are thousands of readers checking their RSS […]

Meghan McCain: An Essay on Decadence

Ace of Spades called attention to this memorable pearl of wisdom folly by the notorious embarassment to the Republican Party: This purposeful and conscious disparagement of knowledge is rather breathtaking, coming as it does from someone whose grandfather and great-grandfather were both four-star admirals in the U.S Navy and who, one supposes, could not have graduated from Annapolis without […]

Maggie Mac Moves Mouth,
Mad Monsoon Materializes

by Smitty Meghan McCain, the daughter of Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain, often refers to herself as a Republican, but rarely as a “conservative.” And on Wednesday night’s broadcast of “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” she suggested former President Ronald Reagan would fall in line with her — especially on the issue of same-sex […]

Bitter Fruits of a Bitter Seed: Envy, Feminism, Maureen and Meghan

HOLLIS, N.H. Time constraints have improved my ability to ignore Maureen Dowd. Many months now often elapse between my ever bothering to notice anything she’s written. Today, however, Pete Da Tech Guy called my attention to Ms. Dowd’s unseemly assault on Rick Santorum’s family. And then Pete sat down and wrote a rather stunning contrast […]

Greetings From the Granite State!

MANCHESTER, N.H. My flight arrived late at Boston’s Logan Airport, and I ought to demand a refund from AirTran because their advertised in-flight WiFi service was out of order, which no one seemed to notice until the passenger in Seat 30D — that would be me — asked the flight attendant about it. Of course, […]
