    Duck Dynasty is one of our favorite television programs. Obviously, we are not alone. Duck Dynasty has been a ratings success for the A&E television network. It averages 14 million viewers an episode. The question the main stream media should really be asking is - why? Maybe, just maybe, if they paid attention, they might learn something about this wonderful Nation and the longing in the human hearts of real, regular folks. Perhaps if political observers paid attention, they might actually recognize a growing resistance movement... I am tired of the agendas of the Cultural Revolution winding their way into...

    Dennis Rodman, 52, has been named GQ's No. 1 least influential celebrity of 2013. The former basketball player, who has visited Kim Jong Un in North Korea, was the top pick in the magazine's third annual list of the least influential celebrities. The list also includes twerking pop star Miley Cyrus, President Barack Obama, and celebrity chef Paula Deen. Rodman said this week he's preparing to return to North Korea late next month for an exhibition basketball tour. The magazine said Mr. Obama came in at No. 17 on the list because "nothing gets done."

    As Cortney pointed out, the media still considers the President Obama to be a "celebrity" rather than the leader of the United States. According to the magazine GQ, however, Obama is not even that good of a celebrity: he landed at #17 on their annual list of the 25 Least Influential People. Here's what the magazine had to say about the president: 17. President Obama He can blame Republicans in Congress all he likes and get away with it because congressional Republicans are the worst.

    You need to read the full interview to appreciate how much of a non sequitur this question was. He's going back and forth with the author, Michael Hainey, about the standard post-election fare --- Obama, 2016, his biography --- and then, out of nowhere, "How old do you think the Earth is?" It's not organically part of the conversation but suddenly there it is, and Hainey doesn't follow up on it. It has a distinct check-the-box feel to it, as if either he himself or his editors wanted to make sure that the question was asked but weren't particularly interested...

    I was sitting in a waiting room this week when I picked up the June issue of GQ magazine. There really wasn’t much worth reading save for the June “Letter From the Editor,” authored by GQ Editor in Chief Jim Nelson. Nelson began his letter by lamenting that he’s always being called for jury duty; that he always seems to be chosen to actually serve on juries; and that he always hates the experience. The night before his last appearance for jury duty, Nelson wrote, he “said a prayer to baby Jesus…asking him to use his baby Jesus powers and...

Urbahn e-mails that the briefings in question were not routinely sent to Rumsfeld, and that Rumsfeld considers the cover slides "harmful and counterproductive to the war effort."

    In late November, George W. Bush went on the political offensive over the state of the war in Iraq. Determined to get his groove back after weeks of being pummeled by revitalized Democrats, Bush delivered a major speech outlining his “plan for victory.” Democrats, smelling blood, carefully plotted their response. The party’s Senate leadership decided that Senator Jack Reed of Rhode Island would deliver their rebuttal. As a former member of the Eighty-second Airborne who had opposed the war from the start, Reed had the perfect credentials to remind Americans about Bush’s mismanagement of the war and of the grim...
