Democrats Overplay Their Hand

 

I live in the southwest corner of Connecticut, one of the bluest states in the nation. But despite the influx of New York liberals that have ruled the roost here for the last forty years or so, a great many of my neighbors are down-to-earth, common sense folks. Although daily exposure to toxic propaganda has […]

Singin’ the Blues

 

Ah, nostalgia! Merriam-Webster online defines it as “pleasure and sadness that is caused by remembering something from the past and wishing that you could experience it again.” And so it was that I experienced an acute pang of pleasant wistfulness as I watched Hillary Clinton’s hair-tossing attempts at school-girlery when trying to explain her way […]

Jolting Joe?

 

It has been an important hallmark of the conservative movement during its 50-year run to point to the steady decline of Western Civilization; to a broad disrespect for the rule of law in general, and specifically in the areas of religion, education, and government. But many current conservatives bristle at the idea that this decline […]

King of the Monsters

 

Some years ago, I predicted the coming bomb that was the 2008 remake of the classic 1939 comedy, The Women. I wrote at the time: In 1939, nearly all of the major characters in The Women, even the saintly Mary Haines at the end, were the antithesis of American womanhood — aggressive, self-centered, catty, materialistic […]

Democrats’ Snoopy Dancing

 

The other day I came across an article on CNN entitled, “Why are Some Democrats Running Away from Obamacare?,” a truly comical piece that would be even funnier were it not mere cheerleading disguised as analysis. And cheerleading is desperately needed as Democrats approach the midterm elections. But running on Obamacare? Do these people live […]

Hollywood’s Real Heroes

 

Going unnoticed amid this week’s entertainment news — the various selfies and jokes of jester-in-chief Barack Obama — came news that, according to a Harris poll, John Wayne is currently the seventh most favorite actor in America. Yes, you read that right. And while it’s true he was mostly the pick of conservatives and the […]

The Real Bullies

 

A few years ago, I was privileged to hear Justice Antonin Scalia speak at my husband’s alma mater, Iona College. On display, among other things, were the wit and wisdom that have made Justice Scalia perhaps the most indispensable conservative in America. And he wowed the audience of mostly college kids, telling them that, contrary […]

Replay It Again, Bud

 

In a few weeks my beloved New York Yankees will once again take the field for another opening day, one that brings many changes. Gone are the suspended Alex Rodriguez, the glorious game-ender Mariano Rivera, and my personal favorite, Curtis Granderson, who has made the cross-town trip to the New York Mets. Gone too, after […]

View From the Couch

 

Having been forced into a prone position following surgery two weeks ago, I was necessarily bound to recumbent furniture and was therefore a captive audience of the Boob Tube for nearly ten days; which for me, consisted mostly of Turner Classic Movies, old sitcoms on TV Land, and the Sochi Olympics. Now, already being a […]

A Really Big Show

 

Fifty years ago this week, the Beatles first appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, giving America its first taste of what became known as The British Invasion. As a little girl, I remember the excitement surrounding this appearance; in fact, my parents let my five brothers and sisters and me stay up “late” to watch […]
