On a clear day, you can’t see Obama.

“I wanted some distraction after my father passed,” she said, as she applied my makeup, “so my best girlfriend and I went on a trip to Turkey.”
“Oooh, scary,” I said. “Look what happened to James Bond in Turkey in Skyfall.”
“Actually we loved it,” she said. “Until something bad happened.”
“What was that, if I may dare ask?” I asked.
(Remember we were in a video recording studio with a prompter girl and a director/cameraman.)
“My friend’s ex husband killed their two children and then himself,” she said, fighting back tears.
“ARE YOU KIDDING?” I asked. “THAT IS HORRIBLE. IS THAT REALLY TRUE?”
“He was mentally ill, plus he was in the middle of a divorce with her and they were fighting about child support. He had always had problems. He thought 9/11 was some sort of government conspiracy.”
He had mental problems? There’s a shock. Wow. That changed everything.
We finished the recording but we were all in a state of deep, deep sorrow. What a story. What an amazing, horrible story. Apparently, he drugged the kids, both teenagers, then shot them as they slept, then shot himself. He left an angry note and a bag of pennies in his safe deposit box.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking. “Didn’t the wife know him well enough not to leave her kids with him while she visited Turkey?” I guess not.
I drove home in a very roundabout way because Laurel Canyon, my usual route, was blocked off because of an accident involving a motorcycle policeman. It took over an hour to get home.
I slept for a good hour, and in my groggy state, when I awakened, I could not recall where I was or who I was. I guess I never know the answers to those questions.
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.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
