The Other McCain

You Stay Classy, LGF

Left to right: Jason Mattera, Michelle Malkin, Jim Hoft and me covering the Democratic National Convention, August 2008. Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit is one of the nicest guys in the blogosphere and when he got sick this summer, I was happy to help by guest posting at his site. However, I had no idea […]

Hey, Has Anybody in Virginia Noticed That Terry McAuliffe Is a Lying Scumbag?

Well, he’s a Democrat, and I would have called Terry McAuliffe a “lying scumbag Democrat,” but that would be kinda redundant. Anyway, the latest polls show the lying scumbag is actually leading the race for governor of Virginia, and maybe everybody’s too distracted by the lying scumbag Democrat in the White House — “Red line? […]

‘It’s Only Ever an Issue If …’

“. . . the politician is Republican,” says Jim Hoft, speaking in particular of polygamy, but you could apply it to many “scandals.” John Kennedy’s father was arguably pro-Hitler in the 1930s, but you don’t hear much about that, do you? Bobby Kennedy authorized J. Edgar Hoover’s wiretaps of Martin Luther King Jr., another subject […]

California Broke, Blames Redmond, Threatens #Occupy Road Trip In The Name Of ‘Fairness’

by Smitty The state of California woke up in a gutter after a two-week bender, to discover that there isn’t enough room left on the plastic to make it to the end of the fiscal year. “It’s not fair,” said California. “2011 really sucked, and so I partied a little bit over the MLK weekend. […]

Usefully Dealing With Birtherism

by Smitty It’s really cool of The Donald to go all high dudgeon about the birther nonsense this late in the presidential term. Dealing with it in a useful way, in contrast, is Arizona, whose ‘fool us once’ measure goes to the Senate. As with checking for valid ID at a polling place, checking for […]

I Dig Getting Paid, But Which Is Cheaper: Five Months Pay Lost, Or ObamaCare?

by Smitty Again cribbing the Mighty Instapundit, “I’ll believe it’s a crisis when the people telling me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis.” Up to the plate steps Michele Bachmann, and the baseball (not to mention the foppish excuse for a pitcher cluttering the mound) weeps in fear: “Because of this discrepancy […]

More On Lindsey Graham (Don’t Speak Those Four Words Too Quickly)

by Smitty Gateway Pundit stands at the brink of a pit and peers over at a US Senator ignoring the First Rule of Holes. It wouldn’t be so bad if Graham wasn’t in an elected office. Like a flag burner or torcher of anyone’s scripture, Graham should be allowed to make a colossal ass of […]

Why Does It Shock Us That GE Paid No Taxes For 2010?

by Smitty So GE paid not taxes last year, per Gateway Pundit quoting the NYT. This really is nothing new. As Ancient Commenter Jesus of Nazareth noted: of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? —Matthew 17:25 Really, this situation is problematic only if […]
