    Michelle Obama’s thesis embargoed until after the election? posted at 3:56 pm on February 19, 2008 by Allahpundit Send to a Friend | regular view Eh, I hate these stories. For one thing, they invite you to treat someone’s college thesis as though it’s a Rosetta Stone (or Rosebud) to their entire mentality. More than that, for it to be relevant you have to believe they haven’t evolved/matured politically at all since college. We went through a round of this with Hillary a year ago to no effect, but at least she was a candidate. Can’t say I’m real jazzed...

    I am safe on the plane now. On the way to Los Angeles International Airport this afternoon, I thought I was about to be murdered. In the run-up to a weeklong business trip, I called the car service I've been using for years to pick me up at my home. The driver arrived promptly at 1:30 p.m., the arranged time. The ride to the airport started out just fine. The driver began making small talk. I noticed he had a Jamaican flag on his dashboard, so I asked if he was Jamaican. He said he was, and he asked if...
  • New Orleans Mayor Says Racism Hampering Recovery

    (AP) INDIANAPOLIS -- The mayor of New Orleans blames racism and government bureaucracy for hampering the city's ability to both weather Hurricane Katrina and recover from it. Ray Nagin is convinced things would've been different had the storm hit Orange County, California, or Miami Beach. And he's telling the National Association of Black Journalists that the storm exposed what he calls "the soft underbelly of America as it relates to dealing with race and class." In his speech, Nagin also suggested that state and federal officials would prefer New Orleans remain a smaller city. It now has just over half...

    In an interview, Young was asked whether he was concerned that Wal-Mart causes smaller, mom-and-pop stores to close. ``Well, I think they should; they ran the 'mom and pop' stores out of my neighborhood,'' the paper quoted Young as saying. ``But you see, those are the people who have been overcharging us, selling us stale bread and bad meat and wilted vegetables. And they sold out and moved to Florida. I think they've ripped off our communities enough. First it was Jews, then it was Koreans and now it's Arabs; very few black people own these stores.'' Young said he...

    The lieutenant governor and the mayor of Los Angeles, both Hispanic Democrats, have received threats amid a national debate over immigration policy, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Monday. Schwarzenegger told reporters about the threats against Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante during a news conference in his office Monday. Other elected officials of Mexican heritage have also received threats, Schwarzenegger said, but he did not name them.

    October 5, 2005 -- THE producer at the center of last year's "Memogate" scandal at CBS News says she was derailed by a vast right-wing conspiracy. The producer, Mary Mapes, is one of four CBS staffers fired last January in the wake of the scandal. She is convinced she was the victim of a group of loosely associated Internet bloggers "with a harsh political bent" who pounced on CBS News minutes after the airing of the now-infamous Texas Air National Guard story on "60 Minutes 2" in September 2004...

    I wonder if the rules on this forum are applied equally? Several weeks ago I was denied posting privileges because I jokingly advocated a "plan b" in fighting the so far failed war on illegal immigration. My "plan b" was to have border guards retreat to within 200 yards of the border and while fitted with night vision goggles simply drop any illegals attempting to gain access to America. Now frankly I am not concerned with the fact I was denied posting privileges for a day(reason given was "advocating violence")but I wonder if the folks who post pictures of exploding...

    First, this is NOT an April Fool's joke. I am leaving Free Republic. Over the past two years, civility and thoughtful discourse has vanished from this site, replaced with demands for ideological conformity that are straight out of Stalinist Russia or China's Great Cultural Revolution, and unrelenting uncivility if said conformance is not forthcoming. This trend began with the California recall election, where certain posters were allowed to flame the living beejezus out of those who didn't wholeheartedly support Tom McClintock, or thought that he wasn't running a campaign capable of winning. It extended into the Keyes campaign last year,...

    Six months ago, Free Republic was riding high, and I was proud to be a part of it. It was coming off having blown the cover off of Dan Rather’s use of forged memos against the President. The President was well on his way to winning re-election. It was a great time to be a Freeper. However, things have changed. It started with the justifiable removal of ALIPAC. I supported that move by Jim Robinson, but the ugliness directed towards Alberto Gonzales. He was accused of everything under the sun, and Senator Mel Martinez was viciously attacked for speaking Spanish...

    NEW YORK — First, Martha Stewart declared she is used to hard work and is not afraid of prison. Later, in an interview with ABC News, the homemaking expert repeated that she would be able to handle it and compared her plight to that of anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela. "I could do it," she said, according to excerpts released by ABC late Friday. "I'm a really good camper. I can sleep on the ground. There are many, many good people who have gone to prison. Look at Nelson Mandela." Stewart's confident demeanour was strikingly different from her attitude in the...

    Genes 'to blame for infidelity' Some people may be genetically programmed to be unfaithful, a scientist claims. Professor Tim Spector, of the Twin Research Unit at St Thomas's Hospital, London, says sutdies of twins suggest a genetic component to infidelity. If one of a pair of women twins has a history of infidelity, the chances her sister will also stray are about 55 per cent, he claims. And the tendendy for the pair to be either faithful of unfaithful is strongest in identical twins, who have the same genes, he says. In general he claims the proportion of women as...

    CINCINNATI -- Imagine it's a special day at school, and you're asked to leave because of what you're wearing. That's what happened to a 13-year-old girl at Holy Family Catholic School in Price Hill on the day of her May crowning and graduation pictures, WLWT reported. "I don't think nothing was wrong with the dress," eighth-grader Dannielle Fuqua said. But she was told otherwise because the dress was too revealing, according to the principal. "I was crying until I got home, and I was still crying when I got home," Fuqua said. Added her mother, Kathy Meyer: "They said Dannielle's...

    DELAND -- Proclaiming to be the anti-Christ, a 28-year-old man confessed to killing three Jehovah's Witnesses in their West Volusia home and was charged with their murders Friday. Volusia County Sheriff Ben Johnson said Javier Orlando Carrasquillo's mother told investigators her son had made a "pact with the devil" to sacrifice human life. Since then, Leida Rivera has been in a safe house awaiting her son's arrest. The Sanford man, who often lived on the streets, told investigators he suffered from schizophrenia, according to sheriff's reports. He said his only reason for killing the family of three -- fellow Jehovah's...

    The Psychology of Junior Sniper Lee Malvo by Michael J. Hurd The defense psychiatrist for the D.C. sniper, Lee Malvo, claims that Malvo was unable to distinguish right from wrong. In other words, he didn't know that it was wrong to shoot innocent people at gas stations and department stores. Why not? Not because he was psychotic or schizophrenic, meaning completely out of touch with reality (in which case he would not have executed these shootings so competently). Instead, we're supposed to believe that he was so "pathologically loyal" to the elder sniper John Muhammad that he couldn't help but...

    Howell Raines said the publisher made him do it. Raines said he wouldn't have resigned as executive editor of The New York Times five weeks ago, but publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. told him it was time to go. Raines' account on Charlie Rose's PBS-TV show last night contradicted Sulzberger's initial statement that Raines and managing editor Gerald Boyd "concluded that it was best for The Times that they step down. With great sadness, I agreed with their decision." As Raines recalled the exchange, Sulzberger said to him, "I don't think we can calm this place down. ... I'm asking you...
