Ace of Spades is wrong about Trump Damaging Himself, here’s why

Screwtape: It sounds as if you supposed that argument was the way to keep him out of the Enemy's clutches. That might have been so if he had lived a few centuries earlier. At that time the humans still knew pretty well when a thing was proved and when it was not; and if it … Continue reading Ace of Spades is wrong about Trump Damaging Himself, here’s why

Answer: They hate her so much that they praise George Bush and the Bush family

Question: How much does the media, particularly MSNBC hate Sarah Palin? Norah O'Donnell makes a good point that President Bush's book has a broader historical appeal but you are having the Morning Joe table talk up Jeb Bush and the Bush family in order to favorably compare them to Sarah Palin. I am an unabashed … Continue reading Answer: They hate her so much that they praise George Bush and the Bush family

Gone with the Bush

Back in Aug of 2009 I ran this chart of Vietnam vets against the war on Google news in a story of how Vietnam vets against the war decided not to back up Cindy Sheehan's protest against the Obama administration: Funny how they dropped off the radar in Jan of 2009.

Because their infected PC couldn’t hit the net…

I spent most of the day over a relative's house, so when I got home I just crashed staying up long enough to start a backup, so I totally missed the president's speech.

We knew that he said what he … Continue reading The Anchoress Nails it…

John Podhordez gets to the heart of the real scandal concerning ground zero

The fact that it is still an empty lot almost 10 years later: We're just three weeks shy of the moment, nine years ago, when the landing-gear assembly from the plane that hit the South Tower smashed through the roof and two floors of 45 Park Place, which housed a Burlington Coat Factory.

Taking: “It’s all Bush’s Fault” to a new level

If you want to make a list George W. Bush's friend and allies in the media it likely doesn't include Maureen Dowd, Eugene Robinson or Peter Beinart.

The thing that makes the George/Laura Bush visits the troops story…

...so devastating to the White House is the contrast with the with the Michelle Obama's trip to Spain. Powerline nails it. He's a good man.
