How about Internet Explorer?These idiots selected the Starbucks (people don't like them, and they're product sucks, but it's everywhere so they win for showing up) of computer technology? Good luck with that.

    Last week, Conservative pundit Ann Coulter told me and a thousand young libertarians that we libertarians are puss- -- well, she used slang for a female body part. We were in Washington, D.C., at the Students for Liberty conference, taping my TV show, and she didn't like my questions about her opposition to gay marriage and drug legalization. "We're living in a country that is 70 percent socialist," she says. "The government takes 60 percent of your money. They take care of your health care, your pensions ... who you can hire ... and you (libertarians) want to suck up...

    Earlier in the segment, Alexander explained the role of the sons: "For a candidate who at times has struggled to connect, the campaign hopes the sons can also help explain some of their father's more idiosyncratic moments." In a preview of the interview on Thursday's Today, Alexander proclaimed: "For a candidate who's been called aloof, even awkward, the Romney boys help highlight their father's human side." NBC's Alexander to Romney Sons: 'Are You Out of Touch?' In one line of questioning in the wide-ranging interview, Alexander bizarrely jumped from asking about their missionary work to grilling them on why they...

    While greeting a Latino audience to support her husbands speech about opportunities for Hispanics, Michelle Obama decided an exotic gown was in order. As President Barack Obama spoke at the black-tie event, the First Lady looked stunning in the strapless raw-silk dress by U.S. designer Chris Benz. She appeared to be inspired by an Amazonian peacock as she sashayed into the Washington Convention Center with matching emerald hued earrings and classic black heels. And Mrs Obama seemed delighted with the Presidents pledge to put more money in the pockets of Latino workers by the look of her ear-to-ear grin on...

    Mitt Romney’s social awkwardness is legendary – and the media is noticing it to the detriment of his 2012 hopes. Romney has caught flak before for his lack of casual ease, lack of social polish, and general banality. But now that the media has taken to writing stories about it, the ‘Romney is a weird, awkward Morman’... threatens to catch and destroy his image, as...from the Washington Post: In formal settings -- news conferences, or Monday night's debate -- Romney is confident and competent. But in casual moments, such as Tuesday morning's retail politics in New Hampshire, his weirdness comes...

    Obama Makes Stop On Way To Afghanistan In Whirlwind Tour Of Middle East, Europe CHICAGO (CBS) A group soldiers serving overseas, including some from the Chicago area, were overjoyed Saturday when presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama visited in Kuwait. As CBS 2's Susan Carlson reports, Obama stopped in at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait before making his first trip to Afghanistan. Camp Arifjan is a major gateway for U.S. soldiers moving into and out of Iraq. The soldiers applauded thunderously when Obama arrived; one of them could barely contain herself as she sported a Chi-town sign. When the cheers settled...

    Norwegian companies insult foreign clients, lose business contracts and are reluctant to expand into new markets because of the poor English language skills of employees and business leaders, according to a new survey. "Norwegians think their English is much better than what it really is," philologist Glenn Ole Hellekjr said. More than half of the Norwegian business leaders in a recently conducted survey admitted that they had insulted foreign business partners because of insufficient knowledge of the English language, newspaper Aftenposten reported Wednesday. The survey, conducted by philologist Glenn Ole Hellekjr on behalf of The Norwegian Centre for Foreign Languages...

    The Washington Post warns of "Pakistan's Awkward Balancing Act on Islamic Militant Groups." But if one looks closely at the actions of Pakistan's president, Pervez Musharraf, it is clear that he has made his choice to side with the West, there's no going back, and he is beyond the pale of reconciliation with his country's lunatic Islamists. The scale has tipped to one side. It is time for Musharraf to explicitly say so and do so, as he'll never appease Pakistan's radicals. Here's an excerpt from the Post: The basic problem for Pakistan's president, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, is that he...

    Congressman Peter King (R- NY) was on the Mark Levin show tonight. He is one of the best guys in the House. He stated what we have been reporting on, that the Democrat establishment is in a very "akward" postion in regard to Israel. On the one hand, there is such a high level of support for Israel in the US that they are forced to toe the line. However, on the other hand, they always side with the Europeans over Bush and for the same reasons that they oppose him on Iraq they should oppose him on Israel too....

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    Bushs giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNMs current thinking is Bush doesnt spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: its a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bushs job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short.

    Genetic testing reveals awkward truth about Xinjiangs famous mummiesM (AFP) 19 April 2005 URUMQI, China - After years of controversy and political intrigue, archaeologists using genetic testing have proven that Caucasians roamed Chinas Tarim Basin 1,000 years before East Asian people arrived. The research, which the Chinese government has appeared to have delayed making public out of concerns of fueling Uighur Muslim separatism in its western-most Xinjiang region, is based on a cache of ancient dried-out corpses that have been found around the Tarim Basin in recent decades. It is unfortunate that the issue has been so politicized because it...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    WASHINGTON - When Sen. Edward M. Kennedy accepts a public service award from former President Bush next week in Texas, awkward moments are bound to buffet the two chiefs of America's most prominent and powerful political families. The liberal Bay State senator has emerged as the harshest Capitol Hill critic of Bush's conservative son, President George W. Bush. Kennedy actually called Bush a serial liar in a blistering speech last month on Iraq. ``It will be the pink elephant just sitting there in the middle of the room,'' Jim McGrath, a spokesman for the elder Bush, said of the simmering...
