Tater Tots With Russia Sauce

  Simple recipe: 1 fat bald CNN personality with zero self-awareness; Several dozen of his own words; Combine ingredients. Bake for one minute and six seconds.

Georgia on My Mind

  “It seemed like a good idea at the time” is not a strong defense in a murder trial, and the question everybody seems to be asking in regard to the death of Ahmaud Arbery is why Gregory McMichael and his son thought it was a good idea to grab their guns, jump in their […]

Republicans ‘Punch Back Twice as Hard’ With Ad Targeting CNN Elitists

  In 2009, when the Obama administration was trying to ram its agenda through Congress, White House chief of staff Jim Messina told nervous Democrats not to worry about criticism: “If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard.” That line has since become a regular meme at Instapundit — Democrats can’t stand […]
