It’s good to see that Albany has undergone an orderly transition

And has all its gears working, after the terrible tragedy involving Client 9: While it is not surprising that a politician would try to help a beleaguered community institution in his district, Mr. Paterson’s role in helping the hospital during … Continue reading

Writing

I don’t know how it is for other writers, but for me there are moments when subjects that need attention gag me, or lay against me like a slab of cement. They suffocate me and pin me down. I might … Continue reading

First in a series: “Bush” vs. Bush

“Bush” is a creation of the morbid Leftist imagination, a voodoo doll now shaken over the cereal bowl in the morning and over the covers at night before bed, haunting the believers in the pure evil of “Bush” even into … Continue reading

Obtuse

Dull. According to the senior Pentagon correspondent’s front page editorial (cleverly camouflaged with the patterns of a news story) in the New Paltz Times, New Paltz town supervisor Toni Hokanson and, ah, friends (including the senior Pentagon correspondent), are just … Continue reading

The key

In this YouTube video of Barack Obama’s pastor Jeremiah Wright being inteviewed, more than a year ago, by Sean Hannity and Alan Colmes, you will hear Wright make continuous reference to “black liberation theology,” “black theology,” and to the writings … Continue reading

The gift that never stops giving

At least, the gift that never stops giving to James Taranto (first item), who is laid up with a broken leg and needed an uplifting laugh. As usual, John Kerry has come to the rescue.

Krauthammer winnows the Obama speech

The speech, I thought, was an awful and obvious ruse. When the whole story about Obama’s church is out (and it’s not), the speech will be seen, even by its already critics, as worse than its evasions of and misdirections … Continue reading

First comments on “Liberal Fascism” from Beck

Or perhaps I should say the first substantive comments. He’s noting the comments of another blogger and adding some thoughts of his own. I believe he’s still reading the book. The subject here is, of course, Jonah Goldberg’s “Liberal Fascism,” … Continue reading

More about the minister

As I said in the last post, this story has no bottom for Barack Obama. Ronald Kessler writes at the Wall Street Journal: The title of Mr. Obama’s bestseller “The Audacity of Hope” comes from one of Wright’s sermons. Mr. … Continue reading

That well is bottomless

The well I refer to is the one constituted by Barack Obama’s racist pastor and his racist church. There is simply no bottom to it. Obama cannot distance himself from a church he has attended for twenty years. Imagine a … Continue reading

Obama’s Pastor

Judge for yourself. This isn’t a church that Obama wandered into one Sunday and then dozed off during the sermon. He’s been a member of this congregation, and listening to this preacher, for about 20 years.

Is there another shoe?

Spitzer went fast. My gut tells me that there’s gonna be another shoe droppin’. I just don’t believe that there was only one emperor attending meetings at the Emperor’s Club. Just as the Feds followed Spitzer’s money to the brothel, … Continue reading

More about Spitzer

Apparently it was the IRS, monitoring unusual transactions reported to them by Spitzer’s bank, that caught the governor shoveling dough to front companies. The transactions turned out to be sideways payments to the Emperor’s Club. At first, though, the FBI … Continue reading

Hoax?

Is global warming a hoax? Australian geologist Bob Carter, in a four-part YouTube of a talk he gave, makes a pretty good case that it is. In looking at thousands of years of climate history, Carter shows that there is … Continue reading
