The Other McCain

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

Kirsten Gillibrand’s Phony ‘Courage’

Kirsten Gillibrand is a Democrat and a liar, but I repeat myself. In her new book, she claims that male Senate colleagues sexually harassed her, but refused to name names, which means either: A. The harassers were Democrats, and Gillibrand is protecting these sexist swine for partisan reasons; or B. She’s lying. You can believe […]

Steyn Distills Obama To < 10 Characters

by Smitty Emphasis original: The Obama Doctrine – “Don’t do stupid sh*t” – has been rendered in non-PG version as “Don’t do stupid stuff”. But it should be more pithily streamlined yet: Don’t do. I guess one major value added by the Obama Administration is that we’ve more or less seen an operational test of […]

Question For An Office Holder

Dear @BarackObama: If it's OK for you to say ISIL is not Islamic, does that justify those who say you're not Christian? R, C @instapundit — 'Teahadist' h/t@DMat (@smitty_one_each) September 11, 2014 Spake Bobo: I think a president should always be saluted when they go against their natural inclinations. His inclination is not to use military force. It’s certainly […]

Violence, Foreign and Domestic

Americans demand that action be taken to deal with two grave threats, radical Islamic terrorism and NFL running backs: The N.F.L. remained on the defensive Tuesday as questions mounted over its handling of the domestic abuse case involving one of its star running backs, Ray Rice. Commissioner Roger Goodell went on national television to address […]

Obama Is All: “Ha ha, Holland! I Got A 35% Approval Floor, And I’m Not Even Named After A Foreign Country”

by Smitty Via Instapundit, the excellent Daniel Hannan, emphasis mine: Snobbery is not confined to any party or faction, of course. What seems far more common on the Left, though, is the need to find some inert, subjugated, grateful mass to champion. At first, that mass was supposed to be the industrialised proletariat. But, when […]

Nobel Peace Prize Winner

“Obama: Anatomy of a World Leader,” by Alex Gray (detail) There seems to be some confusion about President Obama’s “foreign policy.” At times, it has been alleged that he actually has a policy, but these allegations have never been substantiated. My perception, after watching this administration’s actions for the past five years, is that the […]

Don’t Even Bore Me, Webb

by Smitty Via Breitbart: Democrat Jim Webb, the former Virginia Senator who has been coy about a potential 2016 presidential run… Given the debacle that the VA GOP has become with the McDonnell trial, I’m about a third of the way toward forgiving Webb for switching parties in ’06, and the whole macaca-quiddick debacle. However, […]

It’s Almost As Though They Have A Script Sitting In Wait, Or Something

by Smitty Larry2 at Instapundit There seems to be a pattern: unarmed young black guy is shot, there is a vast media outcry over the young “honor student’s” death, family provides photos of the dead guy taken when he was 11 years old, well before he had opted for the ghetto thug look, it comes […]
