Hillary and That Shoe: The Real Story

A couple of nights ago, as Hillary Clinton started to address a gathering of recycling experts in Las Vegas, a woman came striding down the aisle toward the stage and threw a shoe at her. Hillary, claiming to be unsure what was thrown, called out “Was that a bat?” I don’t think she meant bat…

Why It’s Sad to Watch the Bush/Clinton Friendship

On Monday, a large crowd attending the NCAA championship game in Arlington, Texas between Connecticut and Kentucky took a moment to loudly applaud an image displayed on the large video boards inside AT&T Stadium. It was of former U.S. presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush seated next to each other in one of the…

War And Peace

Burt’s Webcast is every Wednesday at 1 PM Pacific Time. Tune in at K4HD.com His Call-in Number is: (818) 570-5443 It seems like almost every day someone sends me pictures of George W. Bush riding dirt bikes with injured military veterans or greeting returning vets at a Texas airport. Don’t get me wrong, I think…

Listen Up Republicans

The Nooky Follies

When you realize how many political careers and reputations have been destroyed because of sex scandals over the past several years, it’s truly mind-boggling. David Petraeus is just the latest in a long line that goes back at least as far as John Kennedy and includes the likes of Gary Hart, Bob Packwood, Wilbur Mills,…

Bill Clinton’s Million Dollar Speech

I find myself wondering whether Bill Clinton got paid for his speech the other night to the Democratic National Convention. He earns something like $75 million per year from speaking engagements, and charges, depending on what source you believe, between $500,000 and $1 million per speech. I suspect that the speech he gave to the DNC…

The Desperate Campaign of Barack Obama

Romney

I have figured out President Obama’s re-election campaign strategy:  Keep throwing stuff against the wall until something – anything — sticks. The “war on women” strategy didn’t work.  Only hard-core lefties believe Mitt Romney is anti-woman.  And even they don’t really believe it. The “he’s too rich and out of touch” wasn’t resonating with the…
