Goodness

Over on the “Et Tu?” blog, Jen made a post about a month ago that I wanted to address (I know, I know; I’m a procrastinator; I’m working on it). The post was titled “Why I’m a better person now that I’m a Christian.” Here’s some of her explanation: …when I heard people say things like, “I’m a better person More …

Tag, I’m It

I’ve been tagged with a meme, but don’t worry; I have access to the finest doctors money can buy. Seriously, though, Jen at Et Tu? has tagged me with a book meme. She doesn’t think I’ll respond, but I’m so touched by being tagged (Ha!) that I don’t see how I couldn’t. Here’s what I’m supposed to do: 1. Pick More …

Things I Can’t Believe No One Is Talking About

I try to follow the news pretty closely, but this presidential campaign has got a couple of glaring issues that I haven’t heard anybody talking about, and I don’t know why. 1) Barack Obama’s name. Isn’t this a crippling disadvantage for him? In this day and age, in the midst of a global war against militant Islam, does anybody really More …

Another Reason to Say Thanks to Ronald Reagan

Because he whupped the commies, we now enjoy a plentiful harvest of hot Russian babes. So says Anne Applebaum in Slate, and I’m inclined to agree with her. Unusual beauty, like unusual genius, was considered highly suspicious in the Soviet Union and its satellite people’s republics. This doesn’t mean there weren’t any beautiful women, of course, just that they didn’t More …

Who’s the Opposition Party, Anyway?

You’ve heard of the opposition party making a response to the State of the Union address, but have you ever heard of conservatives making a response to the address of a Republican president? Well, here you go: I didn’t watch the SOTU, because they’re all just, “Blah blah spending billions more blah blah the nation’s children blah blah sweeping reforms More …

Steyn Strikes Back

The New York Times recently wrote a series of stories about the supposed epidemic of veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan who become crazed murderers. The story was linked and debunked here by Powerline, and even better, mocked by Mark Steyn on thee pages of the Times itself: Thus, with declining deaths in theater, the media narrative evolves. Old story: More …

Welcom to the Party, Pal

Are the Democrats finally (finally!) starting to figure out that the Clintons are scumbags? Ed Morrissey thinks maybe so: This does show that the Clintons have started becoming a liability among the elites. That could drive better coverage of their deceptions and smears from the media and expose them in a way that never happened during their years in power. More …

Shapely American Supports Troops

We all love to rip show business types when they do something stupid or spout a bunch of anti-American asininity, so let’s also praise them when they get it right. Scarlett Johansson recently paid a visit to U.S. Marines in Kuwait as part of a five-day USO tour of the Gulf region. Good for her. And hey, look who’s left-handed. More …

How Many Five Year Olds Could You Take in a Fight?

You know you’ve always wondered. Now, thanks to the miracle of the internet, you can finally know: How many five year olds could you take in a fight? It’s the first time I’ve ever been asked if I have any experience fighting swarms, so I’m not sure how accurate it is. But here’s my result below, and I’ll be wearing More …

Look Out, Those Religious Types Are Everywhere

Well, this is interesting: a big, color-coded map of the biggest Christian denomination in every county in the U.S. This gives rise to all kinds of questions in my mind, the first one being, What’s up with that pocket of Baptists in southwest Nevada? Are they hanging out near Las Vegas, waiting for happy hour, and hoping no one will More …

Tom Cruise, Scientology Evangelist

Well, here’s that Tom Cruise Scientology promotional video you’ve been hearing so much about. It’s professionally done, well lit, crisply edited… and he still looks as crazy as an outhouse rat. I’ve heard Christians say that they wish their fellow believers showed the same kind of fervor as adherents of other religions (Jehovah’s Witnesses, libertarians, Red Sox fans, etc.) But More …

The Death of Old Media is a Suicide

Steve Boriss writes on how the media establishment planted the seeds of their own demise during Lewinskygate: Unlike Watergate, journalists failed to do something that may now prove fatal to the Old Media. They never clearly condemned the president’s sexual relations as “wrong.” Nor that Clinton lied to them about it. Nor the credible allegations made by Paula Jones, Kathleen More …

Chaos!

Well, this is great; yet another different winner of a Republican primary. If there’s anything I enjoy in politics, it’s chaos. Seriously. If you think political uncertainty is bad, just compare it to the forgone conclusions that were elections in the old Soviet Union. Here’s hoping that Thompson wins in South Carolina and really makes a hash of things. Update: More …

Models for Christ

As in, fashion models. For Christ. I kid you not. I’d cut and paste some of the text from their website, except it’s one of those excruciating flash-only sites (good pictures, though). Instead, I’ll quote from an article I found on belief.net: Since its 1984 founding in New York, Models for Christ has sought to bring faith to fashion – More …
