If you come for an American Hating Bomb planting terrorist…

...you come for all of us faculty at the University of Illinois: In a proposed resolution, highly-regarded professor Elliott Kaufman suggested that the Faculty Senate ask the board to reconsider its decision, one he said was a conflict-of-interest and "inappropriately influenced by personal and political comments."

Charles Johnson surprises even me…

...you know I've always assumed that some traumatic personal effect had a lot to do with Charles Johnson's volte fache over the last couple of years.

Just because you have the right to do something…

...that doesn't mean it's either smart or honorable. This strikes me as troubling. Not because Petraeus is wrong; on the contrary, I think he is probably right.

History, e.g. the homicidal response to the Danish cartoons and … Continue reading Just because you have the right to do something…

The Bigots of the 30’s would be so proud of Harvard…

...moving back to the old Jew Hating days of yesteryear. There is a pretty clear pattern here--again, assuming that the five nearly-simultaneous sales of shares in Israeli companies were not coincidental. Harvard is happy to do business with oppressors--real oppressors, that is--as long as there is enough money in it. China and Saudi Arabia have, … Continue reading The Bigots of the 30’s would be so proud of Harvard…

...really I do, but the news of the day doesn't allow it. Example from Ruby Slippers: An early look at Schneller’s nominating petitions, which are still being reviewed by pa2010.com iin full, shows that Schneller couldn’t have gathered the required 4,200 signatures without help from Democrats. Schneller himself collected only about 3,200 signatures. Almost all … Continue reading You know I keep wanting to get off of the Bainbridge topic…

And Tea party fans would care about this because?

TPM has a great suggestion for liberals who can't seem to actually prove that Tea Party members are in fact racists, show up at Tea Party events with Confederate flags.

Gee in the middle of a War a group chooses to release…

...a bunch of classified documents in the hopes of derailing the effort. So on Morning Joe we have a panel of people all against the war commenting on it. (In fairness the entire regular panel is against the war anyway so they would have to have a guest on to defend it.) Is there outrage, … Continue reading Gee in the middle of a War a group chooses to release…

The NAACP beclowns itself

The NAACP is now debating a resolution to condemn the tea parties as racist. They have suddenly conveniently taken their webcast off the air in the middle of the debate, just after a NAACP member suggested to change the resolution to read "some" instead of all Tea Party members are racist...to protect Obama. If they … Continue reading The NAACP beclowns itself

And Miss Attila continues to fight…

With a pair of post highlighting first the great esteem the media holds R.L. Hymers, Jr, a snipit: ["Linda"]: “I’ve seen him, personally, hit someone repeatedly in the face.

Will Folks and the too high price

I plan this to be my only post on the Will Folks issue: Folks is finding out what others have discovered.

Some things in … Continue reading Will Folks and the too high price

I would give my public opinion of the person who keeps hacking the Lonely Conservative…

...but decorum, and my mother pulling on my ear prevents me from employing the richness of the English language to insult a person, who for whatever reason has the mental capacity of a medieval skin disease combined with the decorum of a piss boy in the court of Alfred the Great, in a way to … Continue reading I would give my public opinion of the person who keeps hacking the Lonely Conservative…

It’s nice to see the AP Prove me wrong…

...about this: Opponents of the fiscally conservative tea party movement say they plan to infiltrate and dismantle the political group by trying to make its members appear to be racist, homophobic and moronic.

Answer: It’s so transparent that even Kathleen Parker doesn’t fall for it

Q: How transparent was the betrayal of the pro life cause by Bart "I'm a faithful Catholic, Really!" Stupak? When Kathleen Parker isn't willing to spin for you the game is over: Stupak, too, knew that the executive order was merely political cover for him and his pro-life colleagues.
