Tony Bennett: Wonderful Artist, Political Lunatic

Feb 7, 2013 6:13 AM PT

86 year-old Tony Bennett is in the news again, this time for uttering yet-another bit of left-wing lunacy. Yesterday, in a press conference loaded with anti-Second Amendment celebrities wearing their prescription-less "smart" glasses, Bennett claimed that gun ownership would turn America into Nazi Germany. Even though, you know, one of Hitler's early chess moves towards the "Final Solution" was to confiscate guns from Jews.

Back in 2011, although he later apologized, and in the heart of our mourning the ten-year anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Bennett blamed America for 9/11.

No more Obama "dream team"

Feb 7, 2013 5:57 AM PT

The nomination of Sally Jewell of REI to lead the Department of the Interior yesterday was probably the least controversial of President Barack Obama's Cabinet picks--and that's saying something. While he loaded up on experts and egos in his first term, most of the most talented Obama veterans have left already--and few of the Democratic Party's true stars seem to be eager to make themselves available. It's possible that the Clinton alums are waiting for 2016, but that is only a partial explanation for the dearth of willing and available talent.

(Michelle) Obama beats (Sara) Netanyahu

Feb 7, 2013 5:42 AM PT

The contrast in leadership styles between President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has tended to favor the latter. However, there is one area in which Obama has bested his rival ally: fashion. More precisely, it is Michelle Obama that has trumped Sara Netanyahu, according to the media.

The Jerusalem Post reports that the Israeli press is in an uproar over a largely see-through, skin-tight, black lace blouse that Mrs. Netanyahu wore on a TV program. Verdict: "Sara Netanyahu is no Michelle Obama."

Chess outrage

Feb 7, 2013 5:21 AM PT

In response to MD Senator plays chess during testimony on new state gun-grabbing law:

He's playing chess during gun control hearings?  A simulation of military combat and political upheaval?  A game the MSNBC brain trust would doubtless condemn as coded racism, given the color of the pieces and board?  A game that promotes religious intolerance by naming one of the pieces after a Christian religious office?  A game in which the fat cat corporate Queen gets to do just about anything she wants, while the 99-percenter pawns are marched off to die in a rich man's war?  To the fainting couches!

Rick Santorum for President in 2016? HUH!

Feb 6, 2013 10:16 PM PT

Rick Santorum tells Greta Van Susteren he's talking about running in 2016. Given his poor showing in the 2012 primaries, does anyone think he's a viable candidate? Social conservatives did not even vote for him in sufficient numbers. Staying in the race doesn't mean you have a chance. Just means you're still running.

A Mea Culpa as Two Members Leave Westboro Baptist Church

Feb 6, 2013 10:08 PM PT

Westboro Baptist Church, the organization infamously known for picketing soldiers' funerals and its "God Hates Fags" slogans, has lost two of its members.

Sisters Megan Phelps-Roper and Grace Phelps-Roper, the daughters of Brent and Shirley Roper and granddaughters of minister Fred Phelps, recently left the church and have been staying with their cousin, Libby Phelps Alvarez.  Alvarez herself left in 2009.
