  • Let media prostrate fall

    I probably don't need to say it again, but here's an Associated Press photo running on the Drudge Report today: But since we're on the new Locker Room, I might as well post some of the earlier, deifying news service photos (which aren't new to the current president, as I've pointed out before, although his seem to be missing that intentional irony behind the others):

  • Why sloganeering is a poor proxy for leadership

    That’s a point I made in a 2008 column: … the glorious nothing that comprises the substance of Obama’s speeches. When Obama speaks, he tells of an elevated nothing. The Democrat frontrunner lifts his eyes, raises his voice, and describes a visionary nothing. At the peak of his oration,…

  • Freedoms we don’t even realize we have IV

  • Dear President “Together We Thrive” …

    Are you really going to be silent in the face of ongoing death threats against a sitting governor? Really? My God, man. From Time: “Wisconsin’s Governor Wins But Is He Still Dead Man Walker?” (emphasis added — in a headline, no less): The state capitol of Wisconsin had taken…

  • The establishment media’s starkest double standard

    From Sister Toldjah: Double wowsers. Click that link, and read the multiple death threats received by GOP legislators – and the Governor himself – in Wisconsin in the aftermath of the GOP’s determined stand against outrageous union demands. And then marvel at how the national mainstream media has…

  • “Together We Thrive”

    Gracious, I bet Pres. Obama on down to the self-righteous Angry Left in these parts are really going to be upset at these signs from Wisconsin yesterday. Updated, 9:59 a.m.: Oh goodness, I seem to have been mistaken. Turns out, per Politico, that “[t]he Democratic National Committee’s Organizing…
