I don’t think The New Republic’s Facebook posting is attracting quite the positive reaction they hoped for: I dunno. It might be worth spending the five bucks just to read the corrections section. Charlie Sykes has two responses to the article at RightWisconsin, here and here. Christian Schneider points out The New Republic missed the […]

Speaking of that Bruce Springsteen rally in Madison today, apparently today’s Tom Sawyer is tired of hearing Born in the USA. (I know I am.) Ann Althouse is reporting that the turnout was rather disappointing for supporters of President Barack Obama. The MacIver Institute reports that the original crowd estimate meant a lot of extra cops (at the taxpaxers’ expense, […]

This one decides to attack blogger Ann Althouse for no apparent reason. By the way, are the Capitol Police worthless or what? (About 6:45 into this video.) The incident happens about 4:00 minutes in on this video. What is it about the left freely tossing around the word, “retarded?” Print this entry

The only tune I can carry is a tuna sandwich. Dave Blaska and the Blaska Choir made their debut in the Capitol yesterday. I understand they are now available for weddings and Bar Mitzvahs. Their performance forced a change in venue for the permitless Solidarity Singers who gracefully exited the stage (left, of course) to perform for the […]

Blogger Ann Althouse gives the thumbs down to William Kristol using Bob Dylan as the theme for an online op-ed. That’s the most pathetic appropriation of Dylan I’ve seen in a long time. Oh, I bet we could come up with worse if we tried. Print this entry

Jake Tapper of ABC News wrote the best “tweet” ever. I am outraged that Johnny Cash supports shooting a man in Reno just to watch him die. #Fauxtrage   Okay, Twitter’s done. Nothing can be said that will ever be said better in 140 characters. Not to worry, though. I’m developing the Owenator that allows […]

There were so many signs at both demonstrations Saturday that it was impossible to catch them all, let alone a decent sample size. However, this sign not only caught my eye… …but it also caught the eye of Ann Althouse, who actually confronted the dim bulb that made the sign. Print this entry

Yeah, yeah, we all heard there was a heckler during the reading of the Constitution today in the House of Representatives when it got to the part about citizenship requirements for serving as President of the United States. Theresa Cao, 48, apparently yelled, “Except Obama, except Obama. Help us Jesus.” The heckler was arrested, thankfully, […]
