The Other McCain

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

The One Percent

Matthew Continetti recounts the luxurious lifestyle of two top liberal lobbyists in Washington whose marriage went kaput: The stories begin in the fall of 2001. She was in her early thirties, working at a trade association, and on the rebound. Her second marriage had just ended. A friend, Dorothy Robyn, a Democratic policy wonk, suggested […]

#UniteBlue In Which @7serf7 Denies Being Convicted Felon Bill Talley

Background: In April 2013, liberal blogger Matt Osborne — someone I hate nearly as much as he hates me — wrote a long post exposing the fact that Bill Talley, who had been an activist in the #UniteBlue progressive online group, had recently pleaded guilty to multiple felonies, including possession of child pornography. Osborne’s “burn […]

Slaves of the Progressive Cause

Liberals are stupid. We know this. Samuel Johnson knew this, too: “No man but a blockhead ever wrote, except for money.” If you’re smart, you can figure out how to get paid to write. If you’re stupid, you’ll be a liberal journalism intern like Charles Davis: I was 21 years old when I took out […]

Idiot Liberal Sees Feel-Good Story, Decides We Need Moral Improvement

Make A Wish Foundation Gives 5-Year-Old Leukemia Survivor His Dream: Being Batman for a Day Awww! You would think everyone’s natural sympathy would overwhelm their critical capacity, but fear not: Idiot Liberal™ is here! Happy for #SFBatKid, but can’t help but wonder if this would happen for a kid who isn’t white. Let’s put energy […]

Richard Cohen and a Plate Glass Window

It probably seemed like a good idea: Trash Iowa, trash the Tea Party — an easy day’s work for a Washington Post columnist, and hey, why not throw in a cheap shot at Sarah Palin for good measure? . . . Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah (considered to the right […]

The Humor-Impaired @MaxBlumenthal and His Hamas-Loving Gang of Thugs

‘How Dare You Quote Me, Haters?!’

There is a phenomenon on the Left — especially among academics and other “intellectual” types, including feminists — where they become so used to living within cocoons of like-minded sympathizers that they don’t realize how weird their ideas seem to normal people. And so, when somebody outside the cocoon takes notice and quotes their deranged […]

The Lee Harvey Oswald Democrats

Lee Harvey Oswald, arrested after an August 1963 pro-Castro protest “The alienated radical suffers from feelings of helplessness and insignificance and, unable to find satisfaction in ordinary life, seeks to vindicate himself — to prove that he is a person of historical importance — by grandiose gestures on behalf of fringe ideologies, savagely lashing out […]

Virtue by Proxy, and Thoughts About Books That Liberals Have Never Read

Republicans “can’t stand the fact that a black man is in the White House!” That’s what a studid liberal shouted at Joel Pollak, and I could name, off the top of my head, two dozen books that liberal has never read. Ronald Reagan once said that the problem with liberals is not that they are […]

‘Puerile … Progressive Hackery’: @BrianBeutler and Our Moral Superiors

Donald Douglas at American Power: Brian Beutler’s more recent piece on “the right’s black crime obsession” is one of the most puerile pieces of progressive hackery I’ve ever read. Beutler’s simply yapping incoherently in the mode of holier-than-thou leftist claptrap. Please read the whole thing, because Dr. Douglas is not just a blogger but an […]

An Entirely Random Observation About Etiquette and Dead Jew-Haters

Remember: One should never speak ill of the ugly dishonest Jew-hating dead. — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) July 20, 2013 There are occasions when good taste requires that polite people say absolutely nothing about the latest news. Just in case such an occasion should ever occur (he says, in an entirely random and coincidental way), […]

What Can Elspeth Reeve Teach Us?

The Pervert Party: Democrats for abortion had a Texas girl hold a sign declaring: ‘If I wanted the government in my womb, I would f*** a Senator.’ Liberalism is like a Swiss Army knife, a versatile tool that makes it valuable as a substitute for whatever its users otherwise lack. If you are stupid, but […]
