Rule 5 Sunday

by Smitty Rule 5 Sunday salutes Gary Coleman and Dennis Hopper. May the Almighty rest their souls. Memorial Day is the other substantial occasion before us. The liberals are particularly amusing at times like this, as they pause from hating America to admiring actual courage to put action behind love of liberty. After the holiday, […]

Dave Weigel, Joe McGinniss, Jesse Griffin and the Palin-Hater Next Door

I consider David Weigel a friend, and have often praised him as one of the best young reporters in Washington. But Weigel’s “See-No-Evil” attitude toward Joe McGinniss, who moved in next door to the Palin family to work on his anti-Palin book, seems absurdly naive.

Dan Riehl to Will Folks: ‘How Would You Like to Become the Next Jesse Griffin?’

Readers who fondly remember the takedown of anti-Palin blogger Jesse “Gryphen” Griffin will want to pay close attention to Riehl World View next week, because Dan Riehl isn’t a guy who makes idle threats: Nikki Haley can speak for herself. . . .

Fatuous Moron Jeopardizes Recent Advances

by Smitty I’m not sure which foot fits the title shoe more fully: Sestak or Folks. Will can argue the idiocy of youth. Sestak merits novel-length treatment. How about we do an FMJRA instead, and save the post-mortem on the second most famous Joe for another post? That’s All, Folks For reasons Stacy will have […]
