  1. This Is Getting Ridiculous — If It Wasn’t Already

    This item from on Time’s absurd report on Guantanamo, along with the absurd statements from the usual suspects.
    First question: how did Time Magazine get an interrogation logbook that was never meant to leave Gitmo? There needs to be …

  2. Michael Jackson and More: It’s Not What You Make, It’s What You Spend

    As a follow-up on my post talking about It’s Not What You Make, It’s What You Spend, here are two real life examples from the news today: First we go to Michael Jackson (everyone’s talking about him, so I might

  3. You are on…the Global Frequency

    Another failed WB pilot has been loosed from the grip of failure…and in this case, kids, I have to tell you, the WB is completely out of its mind for rejecting this one.

  4. Porn Star Mary Carey’s Dinner with President Bush

    Maybe I’m the last blogger on earth to hear that former California gubernatorial governor and porn star Mary Cary is scheduled to have dinner with President Bush tonight, but no one is going to accuse Rusty Shackleford of not…

    Who Will Guard the Guards?

    First of all, let me express my thanks to the guest bloggers who filled my shoes while I was gone. They did a great job. I am back in the saddle and boy do we have alot t o talk about.
    The most famous of all anonymous sources…

  6. Ping This!

    Take a seat before you read this (I don’t want anyone falling over dead from shock.) Now that I’ve upgraded to MT 3.17 I’ve decided to fix the problems I was having a couple of months ago that resulted in…

  7. Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Email – Beware

    I received an email today that got me thinking. You may have received the same email. The history of this tomb, and the 3rd United States Infantry (The Old Guard) deserves an accurate history, as well as the fact that we don’t need patriotism based on…

    Bush to Unveil Stunning New Border Defense Plan

    President Bush is working on the last details of a dramatic new immigration plan that promises to cut down illegal border crossings to near-zero levels. The plan has caused shock among critics, who note the softness on this issue from both sides of t…

    Kerry’s 180


    Yes folks, it’s that time again. And guess what? After all the smoke and mirrors, the situation with Kerry’s 180 is pretty much the same.

    Kerry, free your 180! The whole thing!

    While Kerry claims to have signed…

  10. Cowboys – best dressed poor people in the world

    This WSJ story about Rick Link, modern day cowboy, is really interesting. Les Krantz, author of the “Jobs Rated Almanac”, rate “cowboy” as one of the lowest rated jobs one could have, based on income, stress level, physical demands, potential for j…

    Journalists using powers for good or evil?

    Granted, the whole WMD thing didn’t turn out as we thought it would. There is evidence, though, that WMD-stuff was used and present in Iraq prior to the start of the invasion, but just because you can’t find your wedding ring doesn’t mean your wife …

  12. How Hot Is It?

    It is hotter than a virgin on prom night
    It is hotter than a well digger’s ass
    It is hotter than Michael Jackson in the ball pit at Chuck-E-Cheese

  13. Sigh

    On NPR’s Morning Edition today they had a story about HIV/AIDS and the new statistics that show that over 1 million Americans are infected with HIV/AIDS. This is good in some ways because AIDS is no longer the automatic death sentence that it once was…

    Caption me

    … and a big hi to the OTB people.

  15. The Apology Discussion Continues

    Scott Gosnell of Pros and Cons isn’t too impressed with the Senate’s apology.
    As a matter of theory, I don’t disagree with Scott on the types of apologies engaged in by the Senate. However, as a practical matter, I think that there…

  16. CT is Big Pimpin

    I stepped off the plane today at DCA, refreshed from my comfy first class seat on the flight from Charlotte. I hopped the near-empty shuttle bus to the Hertz Five Star #1 Club Gold counter and was promptly placed in…

  17. The Protocols of the Elders of Al-Jazeera

    I would ordinarily have included this story from Nickie Goomba’s Blog in Tuesday night’s Funny Stuff roundup, except it’s not a spoof. In essence, Egyptian Historian Zaynab Abd Al-Aziz claims the 9/11 attack was faked as part of a scheme…

  18. Significance

    Let me make it clear that this is more gamesmanship than serious statistical analysis, due to the comical paucity of the data set. I do not think these data provide meaningful support for the hypothesis that Republican presidents help the US economy ou…

  19. Daily Read Board

    The key news stories of the day.

  20. ACLU demolishing the Los Angeles Seal

    Help us fight the ACLU in court to stop this outrage and get the old seal back. The meaning of the cross is historical, not to promote a religion. Everything on the old seal represent a part of Los Angeles’ history. The cross represents the im…

  21. And the Left Wonders Why the Country Thinks They Are Anti-Military?

    Hillary Clinton and the Democrats have a problem. Hillary joined the Armed Services Committee in order to establish some military cred for her 2008 Presidential run. But her peeps on the Left keep popping out of the closet to prove…
