Phil Robertson quotes the Bible in an interview with GQ and humbly emphasizes that it is God that judges man, not him.  He’s kicked off his own show, despite A&E’s history of forgiving controversial reality stars.  Ethan Krupp, Obamacare’s pajama-clad poster boy, was accused of racism and anti-Semitism and proudly describes himself as a “liberal • Read More »

If you were unfortunate enough to watch KPNX’s 6:00 news show yesterday, you would have been treated to one of the most blatantly pro-Democrat “stories” of the year running as their lead story. Apparently, according to CNN, 2013 won’t be known as the year that the IRS was used as a weapon of political chicanery • Read More »

Remember, we’re the hate-filled mysgonists racist homphobes who pre-judge people by where they live. Liberal Democrats never, ever do that.  What, never?

Rob Long writes TV shows for a living, and he’s good at it. He’s also a conservative, so when he talks about the realities of reality TV, we should listen.  A&E will cave. Some weasel-worded press release will go out, some oddly-constructed sentence about “faith” and “love” and some other stuff is probably right now • Read More »

It was never a question of “if”, it was only a question of “when.” Phil Robertson, one of the stars of the hugely popular “Duck Dynasty” show on A+E television, has been suspended indefinitely from the show for “anti-gay” remarks he made in an interview with GQ. “It seems like, to me, a vagina — • Read More »

How many people on this stage are just blathering on without saying anything meaningful? If you said “One” (Obama), you’d be wrong.  “A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a “fake,” the national director of the Deaf Federation of South • Read More »

How self-absorbed do you need to be to take a picture of yourself and two buddies at a funeral for one of the most-respected leaders of the modern era?  Unlike other times when Obama inserted himself into the commemoration of other people (or the biographies of other Presidents) this latest example of our President’s fascination • Read More »

The Magical Negro is typically but not always “in some way outwardly or inwardly disabled, either by discrimination, disability or social constraint,” often a janitor or prisoner. He has no past; he simply appears one day to help the white protagonist. He usually has some sort of magical power, “rather vaguely defined but not the sort of thing one • Read More »

Wired.com rips the Obamacare website a new one.  “In a story published yesterday, CNBC quotes an anonymous insurance industry source as saying that little more than 125,000 people managed to enroll for health insurance through Healthcare.gov through the end of November.

Reality be damned, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathryn Sebelius has pronounced the Obamacare website “mostly not dead.” Except, of course, it isn’t. Weeks of frantic technical work appear to have made the government’s health care website easier for consumers to use.
