Attack of the demon baby

The pointless and forgettable remake of "Carrie" released last fall was accompanied by a truly awesome publicity stunt, in which a coffee shop was rigged to simulate a telekinetic rampage by an enraged teenage girl. Jan 15, 2014 11:55 AM PT

Income inequality and crony capitalism

National Review has an article from James Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute in which he offers suggestions for the Republicans to swipe the "income inequality" issue, by highlighting how political connections and favoritism account for much of that growing gap between rich and poor: Jan 13, 2014 1:16 PM PT

Movie review: 'Lone Survivor'

It's tough to criticize the plot of a movie that faithfully recreates real events.  What happened, happened.  The storyteller's role becomes editorial - deciding where the narrative begins and ends, choosing a viewpoint for the unfolding events, infusing a documentary chronicle with soul and meaning.  This is particularly challenging when the movie's title gives the ending away.  We know how "Lone Survivor" will end.  It's up to director Peter Berg, his cast, and the screenwriters to help us understand what it means.

Democrat senator pressures Colorado officials to revise ObamaCare cancellation numbers

There's a big controversy brewing in Colorado, where staffers for Senator Mark Udall (D-CO) are accused of leaning hard on the state Division of Insurance to revise its tally of insurance policies canceled because of Obama's Big Lie.  Udall is personally on record repeating the Big Lie himself, falsely assuring the people of his state in 2009, "If you have an insurance policy you like, a doctor or medical facility that provides medical services to you, you'll be able to keep your doctor or your plan."  Jan 11, 2014 2:48 PM PT

What Chris Christie didn't know

It's a bit rich to hear Obama apologists in the media rip Chris Christie for not knowing what his subordinates were up to.  President Turnip spent the last five years insisting he doesn't know anything about anything.  Every scandal supposedly came as a gob-smacking surprise to him, and he didn't learn about any of them until he checked his morning paper the next day.   Jan 10, 2014 7:00 AM PT

Now THIS is what a scandal frenzy looks like

It's not as if the media completely refuses to cover Democrat scandals.  It's that they never assemble into the kind of piranha feeding frenzy that immediately erupted over Chris Christie's bridge scandal.  In fact, you'll be very hard pressed to find any major Democrat "scandal" identified instantly using that word.  If you're a Democrat, and most especially if you're Barack Obama, you'll get much more neutral headlines that refer to the raising of questions, or perhaps the allegations of critics, who might even be identified as simply "Republicans" rather than "critics" if the press is particularly eager to immediately frame the issue as a partisan slap fight.

This economy isn't going to get the medicine it needs

After President Obama toddled forth to once again extol the amazing stimulus powers of perpetual unemployment welfare - a stimulus that has been completely undetectable for the past five years, but Democrats assure us it will kick in any day now - people who don't wear leftist ideological blinders wrote a number of columns explaining what we should be doing.  As Donald Lambro pointed out, we know what works, just as we know Obamanomics doesn't: Jan 8, 2014 11:01 AM PT
