The Other McCain

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

Our Moral Superiors™

This was a comment I wrote on a previous post: Here’s the thing that bothers me: Like anybody else, I’m just trying to work for a living and pay my bills and raise my children. And yet they won’t leave us alone. The Left’s constant war of aggression against “bourgeois … upper-class hegemony,” their implacable […]

Our Oppressed Elite

Because I’m about 1,500 words into another long treatise about feminism that I know I can’t possibly finish tonight, I reckon I should give y’all a little something to laugh at in the meantime. Liberalism is a joke in search of punchline. We have rich white Harvard students protesting racist police brutality, and Ed Driscoll says […]

Why Ferguson?

Riot police on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri. “Fox and CNN viewers witnessed a police car, a car dealership and the local Little Caesar’s Pizza set ablaze, a beauticians’ store looted, a McDonald’s with its windows smashed — and ‘Full circle: Liquor store Michael Brown accused of robbing being looted.’” — Ed Driscoll, Nov. 24, […]

Brian David Mitchell, the perverted self-proclaimed “prophet” who kidnapped Elizabeth Smart, had been a homeless panhandler […]

The Unspeakably Vile David Brock

The latest news from Evil, Inc.: In a major power play that aligns liberal muscle more fully behind the Democratic Party — and Hillary Clinton — the self-described right-wing hitman-turned-Clinton enforcer David Brock is taking over a leading watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. Brock was elected chairman of the group’s board […]

Demons of Left-Wing Paranoia

The top item at Memeorandum this morning was an MSNBC article attempting to inspire fear that last week’s Hobby Lobby court decision could End Democracy As We Know It, or something. Small children and fools may be frightened by such stuff, but if you’re old enough to have followed politics for two or three decades, you […]

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 […]
