#Metaphor: Academics Sign Their Own Death Warrants by Defending Loomis

It’s a formula: [Thing you’re angry about] [epithet] [Republican you blame] [obscenity] [heinously violent death wish] #metaphor @jimmiebjr — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) December 19, 2012 For example: “Barbara Walters should be eviscerated by machete-wielding crackheads! #metaphor” — bingo, you’re a tenured [email protected] — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) December 19, 2012 Professor Erik “Head on […]

‘Through a Plate Glass Window’: How Liberal Media De-Legitimize Dissent

Patterico did a post yesterday about the “Accuse the Accusers” strategy that I meant to link and discuss at length, but I didn’t get around to it because new outrages were piling up quicker than I could keep track. In just the past couple of days: Stephen Crowder got sucker-punched in the head by Michigan […]

“We’ll Fight Again Tomorrow”

— by Wombat-socho The post title, of course, is from Michelle Malkin’s morning after column, which was a bright torch amid the gloom of Obama’s victory. Indeed, conservatives must stand tall, resist the siren songs of “moderation” and “compromise” and continue to present America with a choice, not an echo. We must take note of […]

Obscure Ex-Starlet @SophiaBush Sticks Her #LadyParts Out on Twitter, With Hilariously Predictable Results

Civility™ is getting so complicated, I just can’t keep up with all the new rules, in the same way I have trouble keeping track of which former starlets actually count as “celebrities.” Last night, after I filed my American Spectator column about the debate — strategically, a win for Romney — I was kind of […]

Actor Jake Gyllenhaal, the […]

Will Ryan Hold Biden Accountable?

Michelle Malkin reminds us of something: Remember when President Obama bragged about Joe Biden’s fiscal discipline cred in 2009? “To you, he’s Mr. Vice President, but around the White House, we call him the Sheriff,” Obama warned government employees. “Because if you’re misusing taxpayer money, you’ll have to answer to him.” Fast-forward to 2012. Call […]

Why, David Frum?

This is just embarrassing. Grant that he’s already burnt a lot of bridges behind him in an apparent quest to become the Most Famous Republican Who Hates Everything About Republicans — a tough competition with Peggy Noonan these days — but did David Frum really have to go after Michelle Malkin? As Ace of Spades points out, […]

Tamara Holder: Should Malkin Get Laid In The Marital, Or Amb. Stevens Sense?

by Smitty The Lefties just keep it classy, but we should press for elaboration: does Tamara Holder think that Michelle Malkin’s spouse is inattentive, or, alternatively, does Holder mean ‘laid in a grave’? Stay classy, @tamaraholder: Tells Imus on FBN that “I need to get laid.” I’m happily married with two children. You? — Michelle […]
