Classes and Tides

Back in the 1980s, it was fashionable for the left to scoff at Reagan’s economic notion that a rising tide lifts all ships. Liberal economists and politicians sneeringly referred to “trickle-down” economics as a justification for the rich to keep the poor poor. Every responsible economist knew Reagan was right, but the left in America…

Clinton Sabotaging Clinton

Bill Clinton is famously jealous, selfish, petulant, and subversive. He and Hillary haven’t really lived as husband and wife in over a decade. Bill’s eight years in the White House left a void where most presidents leave a legacy. He’s best known as the president who turned the evening news rating from TV13 to TV-MA.…

Snot-clobbered!

Democrat presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, seen here explaining to an African-American toddler why black men should not be president, had her sinuses cleared by fellow Senator, Barack Obama, in the South Carolina primary on Saturday.      Clinton, once considered the inevitable nominee, appears weak and wounded headed into the February 5 Super Tuesday primaries.   The…

Depression Just One Symptom of Liberalism

Democrats are more likely to be depressed than Republicans, while independents (also know as “stupid people“) fall somewhere in between. In a recent WSJ-MSNBC poll, Democrats displayed pathological levels of depression: Among Republicans, 52% now expect a recession; 76% of self-identified Democrats do. Independents — the swing voters who could tip the election — are…

Pride and Petulance

After Democrat leaders, Barack Obama, and Newsweek pointed out that former President Bill Clinton’s behavior has been un-Presidential, self-serving, and full of lies, Bill Clinton became more prideful and more petulant than ever. I am amazed at the depths of Bill Clinton’s abhorrent behavior, but I’m equally amazed at Democrats’ shock that their former hero…

Scarlett Johannsen: Forgivable–and then some

I understand that Scarlett Johansen’s remarkable, incredible, indescribable attractiveness came with a  heavy dose of anti-Hennessy knee-jerkism.  I forgive her.For one thing, she’s desirable like a mattress after a 72 hour day.For another, she spent a long day with our heroes in the Middle East.  Blackfive has the video.  (Get your rewind finger ready.)  

Where’s Hennessy?

Sorry, folks.  I’m paying attention to the world in between client meetings.  I have my most significant client in town. I am heartbroken that Fred Thompson ended his race.   I am discouraged that he had to end it. The only Reagan conservative–well, Reagan-style conservative–in the race is gone.  My best to Fred and his…

Economy of Swine

America, and the world, could be looking at the worst recession since the ’70s and early ’80s. (Coincidentally, the last recession began simultaneously with the end of an 8 year presidency.  The one before that was pretty close, too.) I remember that era. Only the unions and the remnants of employer-worker loyalty saved my neighbors from…

Obama Calls Bill Clinton a Liar

In an interview certain to shock Democrats who believe Bill Clinton a paragon of truthfulness and honesty, Democrat candidate Barack Obama has accused Bill Clinton of lying, according to ABC News. “You know the former president, who I think all of us have a lot of regard for, has taken his advocacy on behalf of…

Looks, Brains . . . Well, Looks

Hollywood has more airheads than the candy aisle at a convenience store.  Some of the stories, though, are better than others.  Case in point:  Charlize Theron. “We went to Turkey. When we got over there, we rented a car and we drove all the way to Budapest. By the time we got to Budapest it…
