  • New year, but the chattering class' ennui already kicking in

    Jewish World Review ^ | Jan. 6, 2005 | Bernadette Malone
    Out with Homeland Security for 2004, in with Social Security, declared the liberal and silly Washington Post on the front page of its Style section on New Year's day. That kind of elitist foolishness — the ennui the chattering class holds for the War on Terror and the cat-and-mouse games that never seem to produce Osama Bin Laden, weapons of mass destruction, or terrorists on Air France flights — is exactly what typifies the Democratic Presidential field. Enough diddling around in Tikriti spider holes, they complain. Eighty-seven billion dollars for what, they ask? Bush is embarrassing Americans abroad with all...
  • Mark Steyn: How the West will win and continue to deny it

    The Sunday Telegraph (U.K.) ^ | 01/04/04 | Mark Steyn
    Two years ago, in The Telegraph, I suggested that the massed ranks of naysayers predicting doom and gloom for America should make a New Year's resolution to stop doubting George W Bush's resolution. Alas, they failed to heed me, and as a result the traditional New Year predictions column is a mite trickier than it used to be. Never mind events that have not yet occurred: we now live in a world where there is no agreement on events that have already happened.For example, last year I thought the Americans won an amazing military victory in Iraq; the European media,...
  • Neil Cavuto: 2003 -- The year of the optimist

    This is the time of year journalists begin comprising their list of big events. The stories that shaped our lives and the individuals who shaped those stories over the past year. I'm not really big into lists. I have a hard enough time remembering what I had for breakfast. I am big into big picture things; sometimes dopey things, but for me, meaningful things. When I look back on 2003, I will remember not just a war or a captured tyrant, I will remember a theme. For my money, in my mind, and in my heart, this was the year...
  • The left's year of living in lunacy

    IT used to be difficult keeping track of the left. They came in more categories than could be found on supermarket breakfast cereal shelves: you had your Stalin Death Crispies, your Maoist Flakes, your Anarcho-Syndicalist Bix, your Socialist Bran, your Third Way Brits, your Commie Loco Pops, your Environmentalist Wheat Bubbles. TIM BLAIR writes. And that was before you busted them down to their various factions-within-factions – Labor Feminists Against Fast Cars and Molluscs, perhaps, who would be the sworn enemies of the Anti-Mollusc and Rapid Car Collective of Labor Wimmin. After September 11, however, the global left gathered into...
  • Most 'spiked' stories of 2003

    World Net Daily ^ | 12/30/03 | Staff of World Net Daily
    Continuing in its annual year-end tradition, has compiled its list of the most "spiked" stories of the past year – those major news events of 2003 that went either unreported or underreported by the mainstream media. Of course, almost every news organization presents a year-end retrospective replay of what each considers to have been the top news stories of the previous 12 months. But WND's editors have always found it more newsworthy to publish a year-end compilation of the important stories most ignored by the establishment press. WND Editor and CEO Joseph Farah has sponsored "Operation Spike" every year...
  • 2003 — the year we lost the war in Iraq

    Ah, 2003, 'Twas a year that saw Al Sharpton running for president and Charlie's Angels running full throttle, although not at the box office. We lost the Concorde, Bob Hope, Katharine Hepburn, Gregory Peck, Art Carney, and Mister Rogers, but found Elizabeth Smart. SARS frightened us in the spring, Monkey Pox gripped us in the summer, and Mad Cow Disease has paralyzed us, or at least beef-eaters, upon winter's descent. Herein, a look at the year of the 95 Democrats seeking the presidential nomination and the 9th or so installment of Lord of the Rings. Maybe it just feels like...

    <p>As we look back on the year 2003 in America, it is clear that many things remained the same. Broadway fell back on revivals, "Gypsy," "Wonderful Town," etc. (again) and Hollywood on blood and guts "Master and Commander," "Cold Mountain," etc. (again). The same names, Tom Clancy, Danielle Steel, etc. were on the fiction bestseller lists.</p>

    The Invisible Liberal Award for Camouflaging Ideology First Place “The rap on Dean is that he’s like Dukakis and Mondale and McGovern. Well, McGovern was a liberal, but we had an issue and that was the war. Dukakis was no liberal and neither was Mondale. Both of them had several people to the left in those primaries. It was what the Republicans did to them once they got the nomination that made them seem to be liberals in both cases.” – Former NBC and CNN reporter Ken Bode on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show, August 10. [72 points] Runners-up: “When...
