**Posted by Phineas And you thought the Nanny State’s “war on child entrepreneurs” was over, after the Great Lemonade Stand War of 2010-11.

My oh my. You just cannot make this stuff up: Facing a $78 million budget shortfall, California’s ObamaCare exchange has spent $1.37 million to fund an outreach video featuring exercise guru Richard Simmons gyrating on the floor and hugging a contortionist who is kneeling with his buttocks in the air.

Where is the @NCDemParty on Rev. Barber’s Tim Scott slur?

Posted by: ST on January 22, 2014 at 8:05 pm » 3 Comments

Yesterday, I wrote about the sick Uncle Tom line of attack Moral Monday founder/leader/”spiritual advisor”/ NAACP President Rev. William Barber – NC’s version of Al Sharpton – used on Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina.   Scott, as I noted in my write-up, responded with his usual class, noting that Barber’s line of attack on the […]

I wondered yesterday if Rev. Wright would go off the rails in his first major public appearance in, well, a long time. Sure enough, he did. Via The Washington Examiner: Jeremiah Wright, the former spiritual mentor to President Obama who shouted “God damn America,” was a keynote speaker at a Wednesday breakfast held by the Chicago Teachers […]

Jeremiah Wright. Wright, of […]

The Politico reports this morning that MSDNC show host Melissa  Harris Perry has apologized for a segment over the weekend in which she and her guest panelists – all so-called “comedians” –  used Romney’s adopted black infant grandson to make a “point” about the racial make-up of the GOP: MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry apologized in […]

Words fail. Via the LA Times (hat tip): On the lawn of a Claremont church, just like at many churches at this time of year, cutouts of wise men on camelback head toward a makeshift stable, a meager wooden structure where Mary and Joseph have huddled inside. But instead of an infant Jesus cradled in his […]
