Generic genericism.

Very nice boilerplate article on “science journalism. Which reminded me of the omni-Oscar winning trailer:

Masterful mashup.

In the comments, D.J. requested the magic number of 1.21 gigawatts.  Which reminded me of a nifty site. It’s not a colossus like the lolcat community, but it’s pretty freakin’ sweet. How It Should Have Ended. You’ll probably have to … Continue reading

Clyburn the projectionist.

James Clyburn, the House Majority Whip, is trying to whip up a frenzy.  He’s claiming that if Republicans get a Congressional majority, they’ll bury Obama under subpoenas.  If only.   Clyburn also burbled the word “gridlock” like it’s a bad thing.

The only way to respect a Democratic politician is ignorantly.

Good article, hopefully not optimistic, on America’s U-turn from socialism, right here. But it taught me that Harry Truman, who I’d never disliked, believed union membership should be mandatory.  I will beyotch-slap Truman for that, should he ever dare face me. I know that … Continue reading

When you’re in a hole, stop digging.

The Democratic Congress is probably opting for its least stupid choice.  Given that most of the media is leftist propaganda, doing nothing for a month and a half might actually allow the Ass Party to recover a few points in the polls.

Let’s test the tax raisers’ resolve.

Here’s a jaundiced viewpoint on coming taxes. Democrats scream against “tax breaks for the rich!”  That includes not extending previous tax cuts. Fine. Let’s phase out Social Security benefits for the rich.  If you’re already a multi-millionaire, you don’t get … Continue reading

There are city mice and country mice.

Obama’s definitely a city mouse. And of course science has told us all about those city mice.
