Fret Not: The Clinton/Warren 2016 Ticket Will Fix The VA Health Care Problem

by Smitty Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has long touted the VA system as the epitome of government-run healthcare. “Exhibit A for the advantages of government provision [of healthcare] is the veterans administration, which runs its own hospitals and clinics, and provides some of the best-quality healthcare in America at […]

Can the #Benghazi Spinners Win?

If you’re going to win a spin war, you’re going to need some better answers than “I don’t know.” Lanny Davis, who spent years spinning for the Clinton administration, certainly knows this. I remember Davis’s role in helping shape the administration’s media message on the Lewinsky scandal, and so when Davis was brought in to […]

Vote Sodom/Gomorrah 2016!

by Smitty You can despise Greenwald all you like, but I have the puke-coming-out-my-nose feeling he’s spot-on here: How do you feel about the early presidential jockeying? Hillary is banal, corrupted, drained of vibrancy and passion. I mean, she’s been around forever, the Clinton circle. She’s a f_____ hawk and like a neocon, practically. She’s […]

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 […]

A Twitter-Length Play For Your Attention

Benghazi: A Hole in the Tick-Tock

Tick-tock: Journalism jargon for a story that recounts events in chronological order, as if accompanied by the soundtrack of a ticking clock. Last summer, at the request of American Spectator editor R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr., I spent several days trying to get the White House Press Office to answer a simple question: The President of […]

Hollywood Pedophilia Scandal: Did Democrats Know About Gay Donors?

After Thursday’s report about director Bryan Singer, I got an e-mail tip from a reader that led to this American Spectator article: Allegations that a film director raped a teenage boy could impact fundraising for Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, whose close ties to Hollywood’s gay community are potentially implicated in the scandal. Bryan Singer, the […]
