  • Just a little insight into the country the Democrats are screwing over to pander to unions.
  • Pot arrests are way up in NYC. But I’m sure giving this people a pointless damaging drug conviction is accomplishing something.
  • This has got to be one of the dumbest things I’ve read. The Yanks spent five hours digging up a Red Sox jersey a worker buried in their new stadium. I’m with Jim Baker.

    Before I go on the following rant, I just want to make sure I have my facts straight. You’re telling me that a couple of weeks ago, a large corporation authorized the demolition of recently completed construction to remove a piece of cloth from a non-load-bearing area of their new facility? Let me check to make sure this actually happened. OK. Now, let me check the calendar. Son of a gun, it says right here that it’s 2008.

    You realize what this means, right? It means we are no better at gauging cause and effect than the brother-in-law of the guy who discovered fire. We have, in spite of technological developments that might argue otherwise, no more right to the high ground of logic than the fellow whose job it was to select the proper virgin to be dumped into the volcano to appease the rumbly god therein. We might have gotten over the notion that the world is flat, but that’s probably the best thing you can say about us.

    Five hours with jackhammers, folks. Five hours! That’s not counting the time it took to remediate the damage, either. Please don’t tell me it’s “all in good fun,” either. Good fun is spending $50 to hire an actor to dress like a wizard and put a pretend curse on the other team. This, on the other hand, is the work of people determined to undo what they believe to be a palpable threat to the well being of their enterprise. I have to know: did the Age of Reason bypass the Bronx?

  • The biggest porker in Washington? Why, Hillary Clinton, is that you?
  • The gross incompetence of the Bush Administration continues to boggle the mind.
  • Can there really be any doubt that Media Matters is nothing but a part of the Clinton machine?
  • Karl Rove admits stress positions are torture. At least for Americans.
  • A very original proposal backfires. I think, however, that if he shags the babe in the picture, he’ll think it was worth it.
