Is 2010 finally over? It must be, because the 111th Congress is gone at last.

Marines don’t need to be told to man up, because they perfected the concept in 1775. Two Marine Commandants — Gen. Jim Conway and his successor Gen. James Amos — both stood fast against the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law prohibiting homosexuals from serving openly in the military. But the hyperlibs and RINOs of Congress believed themselves better judges of the effect of DADT repeal.
The repeal may be a supersecret strategery to help win the Afghanistan war. Thanks to WikiLeaks, we know the sexual proclivities of many Pashtun men, who apparently embrace a liberal interpretation of Islam as well as each other.
Long will historians ponder why — upon the repeal — the first communication from the Senate Majority Leader was to a creature of unknown biology known as Lady Gaga. The only discernible connection is that Army Pfc. Bradley Manning — accused of passing hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks — reportedly copied them onto rewritable Lady Gaga music disks. Manning is enthusiastically gay, but we will refrain from speculation of any connection between or among him, Senator Reid and Lady Gaga.
The Kabuki troupe performing security theater at airports have yet to stop a would-be terrorist, but they have determined how Superman’s x-ray vision benefits him when he isn’t out fighting crime. Some of the TSA goons selected former “Baywatch” babe Donna D’Errico for personal naked x-ray screening and, according to the lady in question, she observed them chuckling furtively at what they saw.
I’m pretty sure that the TSA fondlers will not be able to touch a woman’s padded bra and tell if it’s padded with cotton or PETN, the explosive du jour among the bad guys. We have enough money to put TV’s up in all the Wall Marts to show Big Sis warning us to say something if we see something, but not enough to train screeners to do it as the Israelis do. I’ll say something: stop performing security rituals that don’t make us safer, fire Janet Incompetano and train profiling screeners to keep the underwear bombers off my next flight.
Thanks to the greatness of the American people, voiced through the election by the Tea Party Movement, there is hope. As Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke of his Dem colleagues at the end of the 111th Congress, “If they think it’s bad now, wait till next year.”
Now that’s a promise that must be kept. Happy New Year.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
