Daily Pundit Is Just Insufficiently Cynical Regarding Donald Trump

by Smitty Bill Quick’s analysis is true as far as it goes: I’ve been thinking about this ever since Trump rode the White Horse of conservative hatred for open borders and scamnesty to the top of the polls, and in the process, spread terror and loathing throughout the GOP establishment. I mentioned a couple of […]

REVIEW: ‘Lightning Fall’ By Bill Quick

by Smitty He emailed me a review copy, but I was having none of that: I wired myself the Kindle version onto the ‘droid phone for my plane flight home yesterday. As an author, Quick befits a smart phone format well: kinetic prose from right out of the gate, plenty of characters, even pacing. Quick’s […]

@DailyPundit, Optimist At Large

by Smitty But since [the re-election of Rep. Boehner as Speaker] just a squabble over the leadership of the minority faction of the Ruling Party, none of this has a great deal of meaning in the larger scheme of things. No matter who is in charge of the GOP faction, everything will continue to go […]

Thursday Is Mary Jo Kopechne Day; Would Government Health Care Have Been A Good Investment For Her?

by Smitty Roughly three weeks shy of 343 years to the day after ersatz naval architect Ted Kennedy proved conclusively that a ’67 Olds does not a submarine make, but with the right name you can still be the Lyin’ of the Senate, the PPACA decision arrived, in a flurry of prestidigitation that defies reasonable […]

‘Supidity’ Indeed. In Mathematical Terms, It’s Like Saying 2+2=3

by Smitty Bill Quick is taken aback at the postulated indifference toward the gay Green Lantern comic from DC: Why? Because mom and dad are such freaking idiots they think their kids will catch the dread gay disease from reading a comic book? I’m gobsmacked. This is the same Lefty media that brought you, in […]

Is Mr. Quick Arguing Against Freewill?

by Smitty Are we really having this argument? Is it your contention that homosexuality is a choice? If so, I disagree. I would further contend that the weight of scientific evidence is on my side of the disagreement, leaving you in the position of arguing that something RSM might call a “neutral objective fact” is […]
