Credit where due. I wish we had a lot more of this from the Speaker.

Commander in Chief

Former Bush Administration White House Press Secretary Dana Perino has a new book out. I heard her interviewed yesterday on the Hugh Hewitt radio show and she is, as fans of FOX’s “The Five” know, amazing — beautiful inside and out. The book sounds like a great read and an example of how to […]

How Do You Spell Hypocrite? M-S-N-B-C

The valiant class warriors over at MSNBC have a very taxing problem on their hands:

MSNBC’s hosts and guests regularly call for higher taxes on the rich, condemning wealthy individuals and corporations who don’t pay their taxes or make use of loopholes. But recent reports, as well as records reviewed by National Review, show […]

Killjoy is Here

One Panel of Truth

O Captain My Captain

I had the flu yesterday. Part of that involved going through my DVR and watching — for the second time — NFL Network’s show “Roger Staubach: A Football Life”. This is the greatest hour of television this year. They don’t make many like him — cliche, but true. The show will make its way […]

Narrative and Truth are not Synonyms

Stephen Carter, a Yale law professor, has a great op-ed up at Bloomberg View comparing the CIA “Torture Report” and Rolling Stone’s non-rape rape story.

A fascinating side event to the furor over the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report on the treatment of post-Sept. 11 detainees has been the debate over the […]

Bum Steer? Her Heifervescence!

In many ways Texas Monthly, is a typical liberal rag (but it is our liberal rag), but every so often they produce great articles on some aspect of Texas culture or history. One of their constant high points though is the annual Bum Steer Awards issue. It is a bipartisan romp through the rough […]
