Let a million conspiracy theories bloom. But color me intensely curious about their reasoning for this very strange call. One of the first teams of heavily armed police to respond to Monday’s shooting in Washington DC was ordered to stand
Forget I said anything: RT @Team_Shep: U.S. SECRET SERVICE: MALE THREW FIRECRACKERS OVER WHITE HOUSE’S NORTH FENCE LINE, SAYS THERE WERE NOT SHOTS FIRED REUTERS — Fin Gomez (@finnygo) September 16, 2013 Below the original post, which is now retracted.
In response to One Year Later: Why We Were in Benghazi: Great article, John. Over at my blog, I wrote: Mickey Kaus had an interesting metaphor for explaining odd news coverage. He suggested that sometimes one can feel the presence
In response to Another Syria conspiracy: I believe Assad or his goons gassed those people. I don’t buy Assad’s claim that it’s “illogical” to drop gas weapons where his troops were located. Of course they were located there. They were
Debbie Wasserman Scultz: Actually, Dozens of Countries Support Us In Our Syria Strike, But It's a Secret So I Can't Tell You Who
Bush had the tangible help of dozens of countries — some troops, some medical personnel, some airlift and refueling support — and the on-the-record support (even if not always backed by tangible contributions) of more than 40 countries in his
…that T-Bone had high cheekbones, suggesting some Cherokee blood. I like how at the end Cory Booker’s shadowy, mysterious friend T-Bone “just disappears into the streets” like Bruce Banner at the end of a Hulk episode. Goodbye, Hulk. Thank you
In response to Bradley Manning Will Live as a Woman Named Chelsea: … of the newest plot twist in season 4 of Homeland.
Via @johnekdahl. It’s breathtaking. My breath was literally taken for a moment when I saw this. What can you say? There’s simply nothing to say. The thing proves itself, as they say in law. Res ipsa loquitor. So @washingtonpost, what
I don’t know how you guys are missing out on this. So far you guys have missed the Christian Nation study and review guide (with homework questions, no really) and also the Christian Nation teaser trailer:
Apparently a real publisher, W.W. Norton, put out a book called Christian Nation, which is… well a novel, supposedly, for some definitions of “novel.” It’s an alt-history book which postulates that Sarah Palin became President in 2009 or so. (McCain
In response to Rodeo Clowns of America Unite! : Just wanted to quote this again: “Disagreeing with speech is one thing. Banning it and ordering citizens into reeducation classes for mocking a liberal leader is another,” said Stockman. “Liberals have
San Diego Hooters: It's Important That Our Restaurant Maintain Standards, and That Means We Won't Be Serving Mayor 'Fingers' Filner
This just in from the executive director of the San Diego Republican Party: Bob Filner will have to find somewhere else for quality chicken wings served with blue cheese and tasteful cameltoe. Well that’s just fine, but that’s just a
In response to The Internet and the Decline of the Post’s News Monopoly: I put that as if I’m challenging you, John. I’m not. I was taken with your statement– Freed from the tether of a physical publication, newspaper’s
In response to 10 Secrets to Seduce a Politician? Et tu, Jane Pratt?: That’s truly terrible. It’s terrible personally because most of us had some kind of early hero. I don’t know who mine would be. I guess this would
I’m filing this under “Culture” because there is no specific category for “Dumb.” Enjoy the Free Beacon’s SuperCut of Krystal Ball stating that everything an MSNBC liberal might say is “exactly right.” Or Absolutely Right. Sometimes she changes it up
No one saw that coming. Doctor Who insiders call the choice “provocative,” but note that the show has “essentially done the same thing for forty years and so it would be good to express some new themes, like molesting strangers.
This guy has a lot of errant tongue action. Her cheek? What? “That is deviant and just plain wrong,” a convicted tongue-pervert just emailed me to say. So it’s official — cheek-tonguing is just weird. He’s all over the map
Shhh. Don’t wake the media, I just got them down. Look at them sleeping there. They look like angels. Team 10 partner KPBS is reporting that a second woman has come forward to publicly accuse San Diego Mayor Bob Filner
I remember the week both of these immortal films came out. Did you remember that? Die Hard released July 15, 1988; Midnight Run five days later, July 20, 1988. Without question, July 15-20, 1988 was the greatest five day period
Incredible: Democratic Assemblywoman Says SIX Women Approached Her Complaining of Filthy Filner, But She Never Pressed the Matter, and Says Filthy Filner Shouldn't Resign
I don’t know why I said “Democratic assemblywoman” in the headline; “Democratic” was obvious from context, wasn’t it? The moment a “feminist” starts defending a serial sexual assailant, you know the parties involved. Via FoxNews (broadcast), here’s the story: Two
Format: Mr. Sharpton and Ms. Jeantel will take turns bewildering each other. First person to seven points wins (win by two). MSNBC Normally: A bus accident MSNBC Tonight: A train derailment into the scene of a bus accident, and also,
It’s freaking me out. It’s like the Spider Walk in The Exorcist but weirder.
Just When You Thought "Reality TV Couldn't *Possibly* Get Any Better!," Bang!, Right There, It Goes and Exceeds All Previous Expectations
Do you like TV? Do you like social media? Do you like the pretend fame that social media promises? Do you like watching socially-bent people struggle to engage in small-talk?Well then, let me ask this: what if there were were
The New York Times Declares Obama Has Lost “All Credibility” on “Accountability and Transparency;” Have They Overreached? Have They Overplayed Their Hand?
Do not be deceived; as Sexton pointed out, liberals have collectively decided that empty shows of emotional “outrage” are a worthy substitute for actual consequences for the guilty party. All people have to do is say “I’m outraged” three times,
