National Review is reporting a fire in a Senate office building. No word yet if Harry Reid has blamed it on global warming.

A human exclamation point.

Apparently before last night’s Democratic Presidential Debate, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton spent the day chugging triple espressos:   With several Red Bulls as a chaser:   And an hourly regimen of crystal meth:   However the crash came before the debate’s end, causing her to lose focus. Unwittingly, she previewed her most common pose if • Read More »

Trick or Indulgence!

Sure, while the rest of the world does the popular thing and celebrates Halloween tonight, my family will quietly observe Reformation Day in our usual way: We’re going around all the houses in our neighbourhood and tacking up copies of Luther’s 95 Theses on the doors of all the houses that look Papist. And then • Read More »

Look left

We’ve added a link to Project Valour IT on the sidebar, and in honor of ExUrbanJon’s time in The Silent Service, it links to the Navy’s fundraising team. Take a moment and throw in a couple of bucks to a very, very worthy cause.

Will the Coming Finnish Hegemony begin with the brutal subjugation of Minnesota? When three of Finland’s most popular musicians, including one described as that country’s Bruce Springsteen, arrived for a recent tour in Minnesota, they expected a quick trip through airport customs. Instead, immigration agents at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport subjected them to more • Read More »

“Voters are showing the highest level of confidence in some time that we’re winning the war against terrorists. I take this as part of a growing realization that we’re making progress and achieving some success in Iraq. That’s not a story a lot of people in mainstream media want to report, but it appears to • Read More »

According to the Democratic Underground, Bush is to blame for everything that’s gone wrong in the world. From global warming to love handles, it’s all his fault. It’s time for the Democrats to tap into the frustration and defeatism and channel it into song! – To the tune of “Be a Pepper” – I vote • Read More »

Hunting Dog Shoots Man (wait, dogs are hunting us now? – Ed) DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A hunter is recovering after he was shot in the leg at close range by his dog, who stepped on his shotgun and tripped the trigger, an official said Tuesday. James Harris, 37, of Tama, was hit in • Read More »

Via Ace Of Spades comes the amazing story behind the story of G.I.

… and kill them! 410 years old, and some university research team dredges it up and kills it, just so they can say they found the world’s oldest (formerly) living animal. Nice job, guys.

An Exurban Jon Update.

Since our posting of “Digging for Foer,” an infographic by blogger Exurban Jon that we published in a October 26 article, we have continued our investigation into the post’s veracity. On Friday, for a brief period, a few of our ideologically driven commenters posted questions investigating Exurban Jon’s claims. Among those questions were allegations that • Read More »

Life during wartime

October 29, 2007 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Life during wartime | Filed in: Kevin, Movies, Politics.

“The Man From Plains”, a documentary of Jimmy Carter directed by Jonathon Demme, made just $10,753 in seven theaters this weekend. While some may question Demme’s skills as a director because of this poor showing, I think he’s shown he was the best man for the job. After all, he did do a movie called • Read More »

National (Re-) Public (-ican) Radio

While we rightfully tag Hugh Hewitt here for his incessant cheer-leading for the Romney campaign, Hugh’s show on Friday was a prime example of why his show is still the smartest one out of all center-right right radio shows.  His interview with Walter Russell Mead was informative, restrained, enlightening and relied on the exchange of • Read More »

“Remain CALM!” update

Apparently, Mitt Romney has hit the panic button. Huckabee has replaced him in the national polls, kicking Romney to fifth place (ouch!), and is surging in Romney’s “locked up” state of Iowa. How to reverse the damage? Send in Tagg Hewitt (Hugh’s doppelgänger) for another round insisting that it is only a two-man race. As • Read More »

Saturday Movie Blogging – Tombstone

October 27, 2007 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Saturday Movie Blogging – Tombstone | Filed in: Kevin, Movies.

“I’m your huckleberry.” Val Kilmer gives the performance of his career as the almost-dead Doc Holliday in this great re-visiting of an American legend, and look for stellar performances from Powers Boothe, Sam Elliot and Michael Biehn as well. And I was shocked to find out this year that George Costamos, the director, actually took • Read More »

The left has many political fora to vent their collective spleen (Democratic Underground, DailyKos, etc.), while the right has very few. (And let’s face it; some of them are just nuts.) To solve this dilemma, a new conservative forum was created last month called GoPachy.com. It’s like D.U., but for sane people. Check it out, • Read More »

An endorsement Hillary doesn’t want and an enemy Rudy can brag about. Deroy Murdock has the details: “I hope Hillary is elected in order to have the occasion to carry out all the promises she is giving regarding Iraq,” said Ala Senakreh, West Bank chief of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, a Palestinian terror group. • Read More »
