Howard Stern Praises Gutfeld and 'The Five'

Confession: I've always been a fan of Howard Stern.  I read his books when I was in high school.  I saw the movie.  I did a brief stint as a morning show radio host.  The funny thing is that I didn't really ever listen to the show.  I just liked him.   Jan 16, 2014 12:19 PM PT

My Interview with's Brandon Darby

From time to time I do a feature at Townhall called the De Pasquale's Dozen.  I ask free-market minded writers, politicians and entertainers to talk about their non-political interests and pop culture obsessions.  My inspiration, Andrew Breitbart: Jan 13, 2014 3:25 PM PT

My Golden Globes Predictions

Will Amy and Tina joke about not making jokes about a movie about slavery?  Will Lena Dunham's dress make her look frumpy and then indignant about being called frumpy?  Will I watch the entire thing despite the fact that Bruce Campbell was snubbed (again)?  Will the weather dominate the awkward red carpet banter?

VA Dem Compares 'Tea Party Republicans' to 'Violent Offenders'

I saw this ad this morning while watching the Today Show.  It's from Jennifer Wexton, who is running for a State Senate seat in a special election in Loudon County, Virginia.  Democrats have found a winning strategy in painting Republicans as anti-women.  As I've said before, our biggest problem isn't that Democrats keep using this strategy, but that it keeps working with women.  Changing the tide will require work beyond voter outreach and "Women for ____" bumper stickers.  We need to change the fact that the pro-choice/pro-abortion view is the default position for women.

A Schism in the Atheist Church

It didn't take long for the "atheist church" to succumb to in-fighting.  It seems they can't even agree on whether to use the word "atheism."  From CNN: Jan 6, 2014 3:00 PM PT

My Interview with Director and 'Burn Notice' Editor Zack Arnold

Over at I do an interview feature called the De Pasquale's Dozen that asks interviewees to take a break from politics and talk about their life and pop culture obsessions.  This week's interview is with Zack Arnold, the editor of my favorite show "Burn Notice," which ended this year.  He is also the brother of's John Nolte.  From my Townhall article: Dec 21, 2013 4:15 AM PT

The Twitter Bubble and the Culture of Outrage

Over the last several months I've been checking out of the political chatter on Twitter more and more.  It seems like every day there is a daily outrage that dominates the Twitterverse.  A reporter said something stupid.  A President tweeted a photo of a silly looking man in a onesie.  A debate on the race of Santa.  A reality TV star (or cook) makes in-eloquent comments.  A reality TV star (or cook) gets fired.  The outrage du jour is exhausting.
