Jul 28, 2014 11:41 AM PT

The question of whether Keith Olbermann is a sexist has finally be resolved by no less an expert than Keith Olbermann.

You may recall that Olbermann has previously made sexist comments about Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin and S.E. Cupp. Olbermann eventually apologized for those attacks but only after he was called out in public. And according to Michelle Malkin, Olbermann didn't apologize to her directly.

Vox: Hamas Uses Human Shields so Israel Should Stand Down

Jul 17, 2014 4:37 PM PT

Vox's Max Fisher has a story today which acknowledges that, yes, Hamas is a group of terrorists using human shields, including children, in its war against Israel. But why, Vox asks, does Israel insist on fighting back.

Only the people responsible can know for sure why Palestinian militants would use civilian buildings, but any real possibility is bad. Maybe militant groups use civilian buildings like this UN school simply because they don't mind the danger this creates for the Palestinians they claim to protect. Maybe it's because they are hoping that the rockets will be safer in a UN school because Israel won't want to bomb it, which means using Palestinians kids and teachers as human shields. An argument you hear from Hamas's harshest critics is that they are hoping Israel will target the schools, thus rallying people to their side.


Here's the thing, though: while incidents like this force Israel to decide between bombing civilian structures or allowing Hamas to use those structures as rocket storage depots, it does not actually force Israel to choose to bomb civilian buildings. It is entirely within Israel's power to not bomb civilian buildings.

NBC News Fails to Blow Border Crisis Back On GOP (So Far)

The news outlet had hoped the rest of the media would join them in making the border crisis as big of a problem for Republicans as it currently is for President Obama. The ploy was to attack the GOP for not handing Obama the $3.7 billion blank check he asked for to "fix" the crisis.

What you earn vs. what you 'deserve'

Jul 7, 2014 2:58 PM PT

In response to ''USA Today' Knows Nothing About the American Dream:

If you'll permit me a bit of drive-by cross-linking, this is part of what I was talking about earlier with the "Takers who are also Makers" post.  Part of the dependency process is convincing people that they "deserve" far more than they earn, which makes them resent the people who already have those things... and fills them with rage at anyone who suggests they should work hard to get what they want.
