Ted Nugent and His Conservative Media Enablers

Ted Nugent, the gun-toting rocker with a big mouth, has done it again.   His latest rant, not surprisingly, is about his favorite target, Barack Obama.  This is what he recently told guns.com: Barack Obama is a “Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel” and a “gangster.” Even if you ignore the communist and gangster rhetoric, Nugent…

Are You a Member of the Flat Earth Society?

I once said that I care about the planet as much as the next guy, unless the next guy is Al Gore.  Update:  make it, unless the next guy is Al Gore … or John Kerry. Kerry, you may have heard, just said this about what used to be called global warming until it got…

Here’s what he said: “… there is a Republican base of voters for whom compromise with me is a betrayal. And that — more than anything,…

I Take Full Responsibility — Now Leave Me Alone!

Now that Benghazi is back in the news with a Senate report saying the deadly attack was “preventable” and blasting the State Department for lax security that led to four Americans being murdered, I’ve been wondering:  Where is Hillary Clinton?  Why isn’t she out there commenting on the report?  It’s like she’s disappeared. Then it…
