    America is roaring back -- with laughter. A fed-up nation with itchy Twitter fingers is bringing down what's left of an insufferably pompous presidency. How? By unleashing the most American weapon of all: the wisecrack. A hilarious barrage of catcalls and insults has greeted Obama's latest debacle, a Soviet-style website called Attack Watch. With its terrifying design of red and black cellblocks, and scary photos of Obama's critics looking like Mafia hoodlums, Attack Watch openly solicits Americans to turn in their friends and neighbors for thoughtcrimes against the president. Before we revel in our countrymen's deliciously rude response, let me...

    Zeppo Marx as Horatio Jamison in the 1930 Marx Brothers Film Animal Crackers. As usual, Zeppo plays straight man to his brother Groucho.Growing up in the pre-cable TV era, our choices of programming were quite limited and local television stations had to rely on old movies and reruns due to the high cost of producing original broadcasting. Even though our selection was limited it was a blessing in disguise. Other than TCM buffs (like myself) and the annual Christmas showings of It’s a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol (the one starring Alistair Sim is the best, by the way),...
  • Bring Down the Duck! Kalb Says WSJ 'Mean-Spirited' to Criticize NY Times Over Leaks

    by Mark Finkelstein July 9, 2006 That didn't take long! Just yesterday I suggested readers keep in mind the MSM's bashing of Pres. Bush on his birthday the next time a liberal accused conservatives of being 'mean-spirited.' Groucho fans will know what I mean when I say: bring down the duck! On last evening's Journal Editorial Report , liberal newsie Marvin Kalb said the magic 'm-s' word in condemning the Wall Street Journal for its criticism of the New York Times. The Journal had run an editorial, Fit and Unfit to Print [subscription required] that both explained why it had...

    On a train ride out of the Northeast corridor between Philly and D.C., I had one of those Jerry McGuire moments. ... You know, the kind of moment where some of the big picture ideas in life really crystallize. Unlike the character in the movie, I was thinking about the future of the conservative movement (not about the life of the uber sports marketing agent). The timing of my “mission statement” was tied to the tough week conservatives had just experienced in the U.S. Senate. We had a double setback of failing to produce a majority in support of a...

    DURHAM -- An official with the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense said the black nationalist organization is providing security for the woman who has accused Duke lacrosse players of raping her. And the organization is distributing recruitment brochures with information about a rally planned near the Duke campus for Monday. The brochures ask, "Had enough of disrespect and racism from Duke University?" The materials contain photographs of Collin Finnerty and Reade Seligmann, the two white lacrosse players indicted and charged with raping a black exotic dancer at 610 N. Buchanan Blvd. the night of March 13-14. "We'll do...

    So, just how boring is John Kerry? According to Wall Street Journal's Wesley Pruden, Kerry is best forgotten if he wants to win in November:“This week Monsieur Kerry is expected to choose his running mate, and the town is buzzing that it might be Hillary. This would fit perfectly into the affirmative amnesia strategy. Monsieur Kerry could stretch his usual summer idyll in France well into the autumn, and if he is elected president he won't have to come back at all. The Clintons will be happy to see to that.” – writes Wesley Pruden, Wall Street Journal.

    Whatever It Is, They’re Against It David C. Stolinsky, M.D. Wednesday, May 14, 2003 I don't know what they have to say, It makes no difference anyway. Whatever it is, I'm against it. – Groucho Marx in “Horse Feathers” Total negativism is an appropriate attitude for Groucho’s zany version of a college president. His ridiculous dance in an academic robe still makes us laugh. But negativism is not an appropriate attitude for citizens of a republic. It is still less appropriate for leaders of a great nation. And it’s not at all amusing. When a small child learns he can...

    Oprah Winfrey is the most powerful woman in America. She decides what makes the New York Times best-seller lists. Her touchy-feely style sucks in audiences at the rate of 14 million viewers per day. But Oprah is far more than a cultural force -- she's a dangerous political force as well, a woman with unpredictable and mercurial attitudes toward the major issues of the day. Her ignorant views and wacky reasoning shape the views of millions. Oprah's latest target: the war in Iraq. In what previews described as an eye-opening hour, Oprah used her bully pulpit on March 18 to...

    Congressional Democrats, led by Minority Leaders Tom Daschle and Nanacy Pelosi, unveiled today there theme song for the next 2 years. "This song really outlines the main pillar in Democratic thinking, and gives our members and candidates a positive message for them to hang their hats on," said Daschle. Pelosi added, "Much like Clinton had "Don't Stop Thinking About (fundraising) Tommorrow" and Al Gore had the Mac(moron)arena, we feel that this song proves that Democrats have moved beyond mere Conservaphobia into outright hatred of morality and common sense.
