  • Why Vladimir Putin Needs to Show Alaska Some Love

    Tell us how you really feel, Vladimir Putin. The Russian leader, who recently annexed Crimea from Ukraine, dissed Alaska today in his annual marathon question-and-answer session. Asked by a Russian woman if the U.S. state could be his next conquest, Putin seemed disinterested in adding it to his growing empire. "What would you need Alaska for?" he asked, adding that Russia already has enough cold territory. Russia sold Alaska to the United States in the 19th century for $7.2 million in gold.
  • Americans increasingly prefer Democrats on healthcare: Reuters/Ipsos poll

    Yahoo! News ^ | 4/14/14 | Gabriel Debenedetti - Reuters
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats' plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after...
  • Mourning Their Idiot: Liberals Are Seriously Exaggerating the Loss of Colbert 'The Character'

    Newsbusters ^ | April 15, 2014 | 07:12 | Tim Graham
    One of the tender mercies of Stephen Colbert's ascension to the "Late Show" set at CBS is his shedding of the faux-conservative "high-status idiot" character. To conservatives, this "Colbert" has never seemed authentic or sustained cleverness -- how many times can you say you don't read or even like books? It mostly marks the deep ruts of liberal arrogance in their own mental superiority. Colbert has perpetually had trouble staying inside this character, always winking at and mocking it more than inhabiting it. To liberals, abandoning this thin charade is far too much sincerity for an ironic age. They love...
  • Putin violates treaty; invades Ukraine. Obama responds; invades Nevada, seizes cattle, surrenders.

    Does anyone find it strange that Putin chooses to invade the Ukraine? When he does, Obama chooses - in the face of a labor participation rate of just 68% (real unemployment of 32%) - to allow the invasion of illegals across the southern border and the embassy in Libya. He then gets angry, sees that some real theocratic domestic terrorists are getting ready for some real action (Mormons ranching cattle) and decides to invade Nevada. "This isn't over. The American people can't just break the law and get away with it." -Harry Reid They say politics isn't funny? Didn't Marx...

    Photos from the home of White House Press Secretary Jay Carney that accompany a Washingtonian magazine puff piece this week have caused a bit of a stir online after enterprising reporters and bloggers had a closer look. Take a look at the first one: First of all, what kind of family are they feeding there? That's enough food for a small platoon. I see three people in that picture. Three people evidently preparing to go into hibernation. But secondly, and more interestingly, check out the posters in the background.

    Sarah Honig ^ | Sarah Honig
    No devotee of Yes Minister, yesteryear’s BBC’s classic, can forget St. Edward’s Hospital – that spanking new cutting edge facility that had no patients or medical personnel. Nonetheless, St. Edward’s hustled and bustled, a veritable hive of activity and creative energy. For 15-months since its much-ballyhooed inauguration, an administrative staff of 500 bureaucrats filled the hospital’s offices, pushed papers and generated red tape. Sounds exaggerated? A bit over-the-top for real life? Not really. John Kerry’s peace project, for example, replicates the parody’s blueprints with mind-blowing precision. It is for diplomacy what St. Edward’s was for health care – an incredible...

"It’s not dead,” Barbour said of amnesty efforts in the U.S. Congress, according to the Texas Tribune. "Work is being done on this. I can’t look you in the eye and say I know it’s going to succeed, but there is clearly a path to success.” Barbour argued that amnesty would be good for the country and the only reason why Republicans are not supporting it is because it is politically dangerous for them to do so....

    Christian Post, CP Opinion ^ | April 9, 2014 | Ron Hart
    It has been interesting to watch Putin gain in popularity as he outwits Obama. Since he invaded Crimea, Putin's approval ratings in Russia have gone up 10 points. In another of his historic "firsts," Obama has done what no other president has done: make Putin look better. As the Obama administration argues over which symbolic, empty gestures it plans to use next, Putin smiles (or sneers, I'm not sure which; with him, it's a creepy yet subtle distinction). Russia caught Obama off guard. Prior to the invasion of Crimea, ....

The network has gone wall-to-wall with coverage of the missing plane — not with actual news, but with hours and hours of speculation, some of it downright outrageous.

But not once in the 12-plus minute love letter to Letterman did anyone find time to mention the liberal slant that Letterman brought to the Late Show. Ironically, in the subsequent segment Scarborough lambasted Harry Reid for, among other things, lying in claiming that Mitt Romney over a period of ten years hadn't...

Seeing as its March Madness and Kentucky and Louisville are set to play in an epic Sweet 16 matchup on Friday night, it seemed like the ideal time to run a campaign ad incorporating Kentucky’s strength on the hardwood as part of the state’s great success. However, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell made one, tiny mistake during the 100-second commercial. It didn’t feature Kentucky. It showed Duke celebrating its 2010 National Title.

They even brought in Al Sharpton for support. Sharon Coolidge of the Cincinnati Enquirer tweeted coverage of the event, and it seemed to be the same tired arguments that have been repeated endlessly, until she reported this: Sharon Coolidge‏@SharonCoolidge Melowese Richardson, convicted of voter fraud and then released early from prison, called to stage for a "welcome home."
