There was a time, a long time ago, when modern liberals understood there were enemies abroad as well as enemies overseas. My political heroes in my teens and twenties were men like Democratic senators Sam Nunn and Joe Leibowitz Leiberman and New Republic editor Marty Peretz, men who understood that freedom abroad and freedom at • Read More »

Last week, the Congressional Budget Office released its assessment of Obamacare’s impact on the jobs market, and the message it sent to the few remaining supporters of the law was brutal.

There’s a lot of variety in these new bills: Some of them appear to advance gun rights in Arizona, some don’t really affect the status quo in any meaningful way, and some try to repeal the gains that gun rights have made in the past few years. Senate Bill 1063: Allows people to carry guns in • Read More »

… I’m afraid Chuck Schumer might be on to something here.  Schumer will argue that Democrats must defend popular government programs such as extended unemployment benefits and student loan subsidies to persuade Tea Party voters that they can benefit from federal programs. “The average Tea Party member, like the average American, likes government run Medicare, • Read More »

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.

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? Well, hardly ever.  A Washington state lawmaker said Sunday he was just engaging in some sports trash talk when he called the state of Arizona a “racist wasteland.” Democratic Rep.

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 »

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.
