Iowa: GOP Island of Misfit Toys

Every day it becomes clearer to me that the state of Iowa is the GOP’s Island of Misfit Toys. What else would explain what GOP presidential contenders have been saying and doing in Iowa? That crop of contenders has been less than stellar. How do they irk me? Let me count the ways. Huntsman: Who? Enough […]


Happy Hanukkah

What do you consider to be the worst holiday song?


Obama lied, people died

It’s time to go down memory lane and we’ll do so by heading over to The White House website: “I’ve come here to Cairo to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world, one based on mutual interest and mutual respect, and one based upon the truth that America and […]


Leftist nuance

We’ve not been fighting and killing the Taliban as enemy, per se: We’re engaged in a reconciliation process. Whether it will work or not is another question. But we are in a position where if Afghanistan ceased and desisted from being a haven for people who do damage and have as a target the United […]


Weep hysterically or we will kill your family members

You can’t help but wonder how many Obama supporters will be doing the same on November 7th. Then again, how many of us will be if he wins?


“violative of the religious liberty assured us by the first amendment to our Constitution”

The Bishop of St. Petersburg in Florida weighs in on Obamacare and the consequences it will have on his diocese: The Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida will be forced to end health insurance coverage for its 2,300 employees if the Obama administration presses forward with its plan to force Catholic employers to cover contraceptives and abortifacients, […]


Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ was another rolicking success. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture: Here are the winning entries: 1) (McGehee) – “Oh God, he’s bowing again!” 2) (Rodney Dill) – “Sorry Mr. President, since the Super Committee failed and the automatic cuts kicked in we’re your new Secret Service […]


Weekend Caption Contest™ – Time Warp Edition Wrapup

The unplanned Weekend Caption Contest™ – Time Warp Edition left me in a bit of a quandary. The photo has already been captioned. Rather than announce a full set of winners, we’ll compare to original winning entry with this weeks most popular caption. Here’s the subject picture: Here is the original winning entry from 2008: […]


Good Riddance!

The citizens of North Korea have received an early Christmas gift. Kim Jong Il is now Kim Jong Dead. What next for North Korea?


What is Santa up to?

Ho! Ho! Ho! What is Santa up to . . . or into? Did the North Pole melt away, or did Santa simply need to cool off? The above photo was taken inside the Oklahoma Aquarium and included in a story published by KTUL.com. According to the story, Santa was in a tank that holds […]


Discovering Christmas

Need some holiday cheer? Then read on. Wizbang! Alien Theater presents . . . I saw a camel recently, and seeing it greatly surprised me. A camel in a zoo or in the Sahara Desert would not be surprising. This particular camel, however, was being led into a building. I thought that I had stumbled […]


Wizbang Weekend Caption Contest™

It’s early Saturday morning and I’ve screwed up the Wizbang Weekend Caption Contest™ this week. I mistakenly posted the wrong photo – one which has been used before. To make amends I’m running the originally scheduled photo in a new contest post. Enter your best caption for the following picture: Winners will be announced Monday […]


“I think he’s a disgrace, I think he’s an embarrassment”

The video below gives ample evidence of Bill Press’ visceral hatred for Tim Tebow.   Listen to Press initially saying that Tebow ought to STFU (Shut The F**k Up) about his faith, going on to call Tebow a disgrace and an embarrassment. You’re quite the class act Mr. Press… quite the class act:


Wizbang Weekend Caption Contest™ – Time Warp Edition

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for the Wizbang Weekend Caption Contest™. Enter your best caption for the following picture. Winners will be announced Monday morning. Update: Due to a technical error on my part, the photo above was mistakenly posted as the photo for this week’s contest. It’s from a 2008 edition of the […]


The Audacity Of Hope

Hope may be audacious, but it has its limits. For one, it’s a crappy method of birth control. For another, it tends to fail catastrophically when it goes up against physics. Which is a lesson that this woman almost tragically learned. She’s one of those #Occupy idiots currently trying to shut down the ports on […]


Wisconsin, The Slave State

Follow this chain of logic carefully:   If you want to be a public school teacher in Wisconsin, you must join the union and financially support it through dues the school collects from you automatically.   If you are a member of the union, you are also expected to support it wholeheartedly and without reservation […]


“Textbook cases of gross lapses in professional ethics and scientific malfeasance”

H. Sterling Burnett is a member of the National Association of Scholars and he’s describing the global warming movers and shakers: Climategate, both 1 and 2, are textbook cases of gross lapses in professional ethics and scientific malfeasance.  To understand why, one must first understand what science is and how it is supposed to operate. […]


This Is What Victory Looks Like

We’ve officially declared victory in Iraq. This morning, the US officially handed over the reins of power to the Iraqi government, and by December 31 every US troop will be out of the country. President Obama wasted no time in traveling to Fort Bragg (cue the irony) to praise the troops — and, of course, […]


This is what a true popular uprising looks like.

For the first time on record, the Chinese Communist party has lost all control, with the population of 20,000 in this southern fishing village now in open revolt.


“Bill Clinton is a model of humility and rational introspection”

Next to Barack Hussein Obama. So says The Anchoress after listening to this: I don’t believe there’s a way to be any more arrogant than that. I just don’t.


Forget voting fraud. Mayor cuts to the chase.

Who needs voter fraud when you can cut to the chase? NBC Connecticut is reporting the following: New Haven Mayor John DeStefano plans to ask the state Legislature to allow illegal immigrants who live in the city to be able vote in municipal elections. Click here to read the rest of the story. Can you […]


This Is What Democracy Looks Like

There’s a petition drive going on in Wisconsin right now, to recall Governor Scott Walker. If enough signatures are gathered, then there will be an election on whether he should be kicked out of office.   I’m going to go out on a limb here and predict the drive will succeed. Not because I think […]


Excusing The Inexcusable

A couple of weeks ago, a guy came out with a book talking about how it sure looked like quite a few members of Congress — including the leadership of both parties — were using inside information for personal gain. This is, of course, contemptible. And it’s even worse when you realize that it’s not […]


“Everyone’s got that special conservative in their life”

I usually get Obama campaign emails but must’ve missed the one Bookworm is highlighting: Friend – Everyone’s got that special conservative in their life. Maybe it’s your dad, who forwards you every chain email about the President’s birth certificate, or your neighbor, who just put up a Mitt Romney sign. Dealing with these folks can […]


Auto Underdogs

Over at Instapundit, he linked to a Popular Mechanics article on “the 100 sexiest cars of all time.” I started reading the list, but DAMN their site is a pain in the ass to negotiate. However, it inspired me — I figured that, on my own, I could pick five cars that I thought were […]
