I caught most of Sandra Fluke’s speech to the DNC. Her tone was shrill and strident. Here is but a sample:
In that America, your new president could be a man who stands by when a public figure tries to silence a private citizen with hateful slurs. Who want to stand up to the slurs, or to any of the extreme, bigoted voices in his own party.
For a moment there, I thought she was speaking of President Obama and Bill Maher.
It would be an America in which you have a new vice president who co-sponsored a bill that would allow pregnant women to die preventable deaths in our emergency rooms.
So first Mitt Romney is responsible for the death of the spouse of a former Bain employee. Now Paul Ryan is responsible for the deaths of pregnant women.
I think of Sandra Fluke as a younger version of DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. So by all means I hope Obama has Fluke stumping for him between now and November. For every person she engages, she will annoy a hundred others.
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?
