The Other McCain

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

Fake Singing, Real Tyranny

Beyoncé lip-synched “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Obama’s inaugural. She’s as real as Manti Te’o’s dead girlfriend. Meanwhile, Harry Reid — who hasn’t passed a budget in four years — is threatening to turn the U.S. Senate into North Korea with himself as Dear Leader. Isn’t this the part of the story where the barbarians storm the city gates […]

Anthropomorphic Lint Blames GOP

by Smitty Harry “Dingius Maximus” Reid remains among the worst politicians ever to beset this country. Breitbart: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) on Friday blamed Republicans for the poor August jobs report in which 96,000 jobs were added and the unemployment only went down to 8.1% because 368,000 people gave up, lost hope, and […]

When Liars ‘Win’

Nothing should enrage honest people more than to see liars succeed through their skill at deceit — or, as often as not, to see liars succeed because so many people have become indifferent to truth, as in the case of the media’s favorite phony “expert,” Ryan Holiday. When liars succeed, this represents the triumph of […]

Harry Reid’s Financial McCarthyism: ‘I Don’t Think the Burden Should Be on Me’

The top Senate Democrat evidently believes he can make outrageous accusations based on anonymous secondhand “sources” and then require the accused to disprove his accusations: Earlier this week, Harry Reid revealed why Mitt Romney is refusing to release more tax returns: He didn’t pay taxes for an entire decade! It almost sounds too crazy to […]

… And the Pulitzer Prize for Recycling Second-Hand Rumors From HuffPo …

. . . goes to the Washington Post: Mind you the Washington Post isn’t citing an unnamed source that has talked to them, they are reporting that someone else (Harry Reid) claims that an unnamed source said something. I don’t claim to have been in this business all that many years, but I know enough […]

Democrats? Cynical? You Don’t Say!

“You can blame the whole mess on cynical Democrats like Harry Reid, who could have raised the debt ceiling while in control of Congress last year. But they simply didn’t want to, preferring to play politics with the nation’s finances instead.” — The Rhetorican, “A debt deal has been reached”

McConnell Says ‘Very Close’ to Deal on Debt-Ceiling Agreement With Obama UPDATE: Reid’s Bill Fails Senate Vote

UPDATE 1:25 p.m. ET: The Senate just held a cloture vote on Harry Reid’s bill which, as expected, failed to get the 60 votes necessary to end debate and proceed. The vote was 50 “aye” and 49 “no.” So much for Reid’s bill being the “only game in town,” huh? UPDATE 2:15 p.m. ET: Here’s […]

VIDEO: Harry Reid Exposed; Democrats Filibuster Their Own Debt-Ceiling Bill! UPDATE: Republicans Reportedly Reach Compromise Deal With White House

I could scarcely believe it when Michelle Malkin blogged this earlier: Democrats spent more than 24 hours refusing to call a cloture vote on Harry Reid’s own debt-ceiling bill. Cloture — the motion to end debate and bring a measure to a vote — requires 60 votes and, if such a vote falls short of […]
