Everybody Hates Piers Morgan

The petition to deport Piers Morgan is now nearing 90,000 signatures — which is what I’d call “a good start” — and this groundswell of antipathy to being lectured by a smarmy Brit on CNN has now reached America’s youth, including Michael Butler at The High School Conservative: Piers Morgan “has a case of the sads” […]

Fleet Street to Be Neutered?

Ungrateful Limeys!

The British press and politicians are having an Olympic field day at Mitt Romney’s expense, with assistance of U.S. media. Never mind that we twice bailed them out against the Huns, eh? Maybe they’re still pissed off about us sending them Madonna.

Making ‘Anglo-Saxon’ Scandalous

The English-speaking world shares a culture as well as a language, and the term “Anglo-Saxon” has long been employed as a shorthand designation of this culture, for good or ill.

Sarkozy Discovers His Open Right Flank

Because it is my habit to ignore smelly foreigners (and let’s face it, they all stink), I pay little heed to the troubles of French politicians.
