Remain Calm Democrats, All Is Well

 

An Animal House, all-is-well quality colored Nancy Pelosi’s Thursday press-conference postmortem of her party’s Tuesday defeat in Georgia. “We reduced by 20 points what the advantage had been in that district for the Republicans,” the minority leader, imagining Democrats playing horseshoes or hand grenades, declared. “This is good news for us.” If losing a race […]

Democrats Blame the Victim

 

Leading Republicans graciously, and rightly, let Democrats off the hook for one of their party’s zealots opening fire on GOP congressmen on Wednesday. Leading Democrats showed their appreciation by blaming the shooting on Republicans. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi ended the 24-hour era of good feelings on Thursday by slamming Republicans as “sanctimonious” in their […]

Comey Is Not Trump’s Homie

 

James Comey put the bureau in bureaucrat at Thursday’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearings. We think of FBI agents as courageous. Comey came across as cowardly, a word he used to describe his dealings with the president. Perhaps it now takes a bureaucrat to attain the highest of heights in the bureau. Comey faulted former attorney […]

Sgt. Pepper @ 50

 

It was 70 years ago today that Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play. The Beatles released Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band a half-century ago today in the United States.

“Thank you for providing documentation in support of your claim of having received a Purple Heart Medal,” the Veterans Administration informed an ailing William Manchester three years prior to the prolific author’s death that provided the sad coda to 2004’s Memorial Day Weekend. “Unfortunately, the documentation you provided is not sufficient for us to make […]

Now he sounds like a Martin Dies Democrat. “President Trump, in a reckless and dangerous manner, has revealed highly classified information to the Russians at a meeting in the Oval Office,” Vermont’s junior senator declared this week, “information that could expose extremely important […]

The Bayou Taliban

 

America slowly replaces its memorials with amnesials. The transformation means America necessarily becomes another place with hardly anyone the wiser. If “amnesials” do not ring a bell, not to fret. They are designed to make you forget. The city of New Orleans — the oft-flooded place and not the train with 15 cars, 15 restless […]

Rex Tillerson Translates ‘America First’ to Foggy Bottom Bureaucrats

 

Rex Tillerson confronted the Trump administration’s greatest obstacle to its foreign policy this week. The faceoff took place not in Damascus or Pyongyang but Foggy Bottom. “Now, I think it’s important to also remember that guiding all of our foreign policy actions are our fundamental values: our values around freedom, human dignity, the way people […]

More Guns, Less Crime Redux

 

People who hate gun violence should move to a community with a high rate of gun ownership. That’s the counterintuitive takeaway of a new analysis of murder in the United States. John Lott’s Crime Prevention Center looked at violence in the U.S. Most murders take place in two percent of counties. More than half of […]

Killing O’Reilly

 

Do we live in Idiocracy or Anchorman? The fall of Ron Burgundy Bill O’Reilly suggests the latter movie. His stiletto-heeled pursuers shocked, shocked — yet another movie analogy — reaction to cable the talker noticing them for their appearance indicates that we live in the former. The headlines — “New Bill O’Reilly Accuser Said He […]
