The Midterm Elections and the Idiot Vote

November 4th is almost here. And since midterm elections are usually a referendum on the sitting president, 2014 ought to be a good year for Republicans. Barack Obama really is immensely unpopular these days, especially in those Red States where Democratic senators are desperately trying to hold on to their jobs. And by now you…

Liberals: An Endless Source Of Amusement

Liberals, I hasten to add, are also an endless source of aggravation, terror and sheer nausea. But, really, if you can’t laugh at them, you not only lack a sense of humor, but even the most basic of coping skills required to survive the current administration. For instance, Joe Biden, who can nearly always be…

Who’s Afraid of ‘Rocky Mountain Heist’?

Free at last! I’m silent no more. Now, the story can be told. Democrats here in my adopted state of Colorado did not want the new political documentary I hosted to see the light of day. They lost. This week, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an emergency injunction declaring that our movie deserved…

Incompetence, Going Viral

No, silly. But if you said global warming, give yourself a green star. As an editorial in the Wall Street Journal…

Maybe if they hadn’t been so busy squandering their massive government subsidies on everything but their core mission, we taxpayers might actually feel a twinge of sympathy. At $7 billion, the Centers for Disease…

Don’t ‘Vote for the Candidate’

There is a noble-sounding attitude that many Americans hold regarding whom they vote for. “I vote for the candidate,” they say. It sure sounds good. Voting for the best candidate, rather than the party, sounds as American as apple pie. But as the Democratic Party has become a doctrinaire left-wing party, this sentiment is no…

“The Attack Of The Cuckoos” and “Ebola & Other Epidemics”

How it is that so many cuckoos escaped from their clocks and have wound up in positions of authority, I will never know. But there’s no getting around the fact that the American symbol is no longer a bald eagle or even Ben Franklin’s preferred turkey, but has been replaced by the Swiss-made cuckoo bird….
