Al Franken To The Rescue

 

Since last week, the political news has been dominated not by the Bob Menendez corruption trial, not by the fight to pass tax reform in the House, which happened Thursday, not by the rather stupendous accomplishments of the president and his team during his Asia trip — including bailing out three UCLA basketball players who […]

Diagnosing Virginia, And Other Items Hither And Yon

 

There is no way to sugarcoat what happened in Virginia on Tuesday night. Ed Gillespie’s 54-45 loss to dippy Democrat Ralph Northam was an injury — particularly coming as it did on the heels of a calumnious insult in the form of the Latino Victory Fund ad which dropped a week before the election branding […]

Out Of Control

 

Let us understand who Devin Patrick Kelley was. He was a high school loser whose classmates, reached after Kelley’s mortifying killing spree in a Baptist church southeast of San Antonio, roundly slammed him as an unhinged misfit. Kelley was a militant atheist who regaled his Facebook friends with anti-Christian bigotry so intense that many parted […]

The Flaking Establishment, and Other Items Hither and Yon

 

First, an apology — this column won’t delve into Thursday’s red-hot revelations that it was Hillary Clinton and her minions who commissioned Fusion GPS to dummy up and distribute the infamous “Pee Pee dossier” from which most of our recent political horrors surrounding Trump-And-The-Russians have come. I did a quick summation of that on my […]

Toxic Femininity

 

Since the election of Donald Trump to the White House a little under a year ago, the interwebs have been awash in complaints and “analysis” by our postmodernist betters on the subject of “toxic masculinity” and what a threat it poses to our general harmony. And yes, “toxic masculinity” is an actual thing. Or better […]

Trump Sticks an Executive Order in Obamacare

 

It’s a shame that despite Republican control of the White House and, allegedly, both houses of Congress there has been, curiously, no legislation passed to repeal Obamacare. This despite a unanimous promise by every Republican since 2010 to do precisely that. No political party has been so futile in its efforts at fulfilling a fundamental […]

The Hollywood Putz

 

This week the rest of the world found out what his victims in show business already knew, which is that movie and TV mogul Harvey Weinstein is an atrocious beast of a man, a cad and a tyrant whose prominence in his industry is brilliantly instructive as to the reason why it turns out such […]

Scalise Is Back! Plus, Items Various and Sundry

 

My viewership of 60 Minutes has been all but nonexistent for more than a decade, but that changed Sunday. On Sunday Norah O’Donnell had an interview with House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who made a dramatic return to the public stage last week after spending several months in recovery from a bullet wound to his […]

#TakeAKnee?

 

Before we get to the meat of this column, which I’ll admit I’m just stealing from an unknown source who posted it on social media earlier this week, a few quick points. First, by now the NFL’s #TakeAKnee controversy is probably already growing long in the tooth and so I apologize if I’m belaboring it. […]

A Bunch of New Stuff and Bad Actors

 

Michael Bennett is going to be the death of the NFL. I’m not kidding. This guy is going to destroy the league’s fan base, because nobody has the stones to stop him — not in the Seahawks’ front office, not the in the NFL’s league office, not at the TV networks who pay billions of […]
