LANCE VERSUS THE LOSERS

My column in today’s American Spectator discusses the latest chapter in the “get Lance Armstrong” movement. Many hoped Armstrong would be left alone after the FDA dropped its expensive and futile investigation: But this was not good enough for some of Armstrong’s antagonists. Travis Tygart, the CEO of the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), issued [...]

VIDEO: WARMISM DEBUNKED … HARD

As I pointed out a few months ago,  the Church of Warmism is gaining converts even in once respected organizations like the AMA, which has declared global climate change a major threat to public health. These true believers are not big on objective data, of course, so they will not be moved by the following video. [...]

YOU SAY YOU WANT A REVELATION?

Not about health care, of course, but too sweet to ignore: John Lennon was a closet Republican, who felt a little embarrassed by his former radicalism, at the time of his death – according to the tragic Beatles star’s last personal assistant. Predictably, this has already brought down a tsunami of personal attacks (from The [...]

SPRING VACATRON

FYI—-The sporadic posting during the past few days is due to my sojourn in and around Vancouver. I took the following shot of the North Shore range from Burnaby Mountain and, as you can see, the scenery is vastly superior to the Canadian health care system:

JOSHUA GOLDBERG

I wasn’t lucky enough to know Joshua personally, but I’m one of the many beneficiaries of his work at Lucianne.com and BlogsLucianneLoves. I remember how excited I was the first time an Ldotter posted one of my op-ed pieces at Lcom and continue to be grateful for the exposure he gave my humble blog via BLL. And [...]

BLACK DEATH CAUSED BY CLIMATE CHANGE?

Yep. That’s what I said. According to to Ulf Buentgen, the bubonic plague was made possible by climate change. Oh, I almost forgot. It also caused the fall of Rome: Periods of climate instability overlapped with political turmoil, such as during the decline of the Roman empire, and might even have made Europeans vulnerable to [...]

VIDEO: CHRIS MATTHEWS IS NOW A BIRTHER?

In one of the dumbest moves by a politician in decades, Hawaii’s new Democrat governor has spontaneously pledged to produce Barack Obama’s original, long form birth certificate. Why this bonehead wants to re-open this issue now is anyone’s guess, but it has caused confirmed Obots like Chris Matthews to ask, “Why not put [the original] [...]

KFC HITS BOTTOM ACCORDING TO NOW

The health-conscious ladies at the National Organization for Women are not amused by the latest promo cooked up by the guys over at KFC. The venerable chicken chain, it seems, is using buns to promote its bunless sandwich: Women on college campuses are being paid $500 each to hand out coupons while wearing fitted sweatpants with ‘Double Down’ in large letters [...]

DID YOU KNOW THAT OUR MOST SUCCESSFUL PLAYWRIGHT IS A CONSERVATIVE?

Yep. In an industry dominated by cocktail-party progressives, David Mamet (author of my favorite contemporary play), is an outspoken conservative and advocate of the free market: [Mamet] caused widespread consternation two years ago when he published an essay in the Village Voice called ‘Why I Am No Longer a Brain-Dead Liberal’ in which he announced [...]

VIDEO: OILY CLOWN DISRUPTS BP CIRCUS

If I were a betting man, I’d give odds that this woman is connected to the Dems in some way and that this scene was orchestrated in advance. At any rate, she turns a charade into an outright circus by shouting “you need to go to jail? at Hayward (via MEDIAite): Does he need to [...]
