    Name the missing word in the following sentence from tonight's Associated Press report on the current situation at the University of Missouri: "On Friday, the now-former chancellor issued an open letter decrying racism after a swastika smeared in feces was found in a campus dormitory." The obviously missing word is "allegedly," as in, "was allegedly found." That word is also missing in sentences found in three separate reports at the New York Times. On October, 24, the Washington Post unskeptically accepted the recounting of the incident in a report shortly after it — ahem, allegedly — occurred. There's a really...

    The addition of Pete Rose to the Fox Sports 1 broadcast team has definitely served its purpose for the still building sports network. Whether he's criticizing Josh Donaldson for not playing through a possible concussion, or bonding with Alex Rodriguez over not being liked, Rose manages to get people talking with just about every pregame or postgame appearance. Now we have to include videobombs in Rose's act. During the eighth-inning rain delay in Friday's ALCS Game 6, Rose had the internet talking and immediately creating memes after momentarily popping up in C.J. Nitkowski's live shot.

    Its awkward enough when your toddler goes into meltdown mode in a crowded store or on an airplane; the dirty looks and side eye from strangers can be pretty unnerving. But what do you do when the crying fit happens in the White House in front of the President and First Lady of the United States?

    The father of one of the girls accused of brutally stabbing a school friend to pay homage to an eerie horror story character, apparently encouraged his daughter's sick obsession by proudly posting a sketch the 12-year-old drew of the scary figure on Instagram. Morgan Geyser, 12, drew the sinister stickman, inspired by an online ghost story about a ghoulish child killer called Slender Man, on a napkin and left it in the family home while she was out with her parents were out for dinner. But far from being alarmed by the disturbing sketch, Morgan's father Matt seemed to find...

    Ok so some guy I work with (who's a moody gay & screamed "Racist, Obama-hating, Tea Bagger" at me one day) just sent me an email asking me to explain why the GOP Senators voted against "women's rights in the year 2010 by voting against the Paycheck Fairness Act". I must admit, I heard about this awhile ago. It seems to me there were all sorts of little diddies in this bill that made it poorly written so there was god reason to be against it, but I can't rememeber the specifics. I'd love to shoot this guy down so...

Included in Cook's reasons for leaving, according to Daily Finance reporter Jeff Bercovici, was that Yahoo would not allow him to write about Free Republic "hosting child pornography." The Salon.com article that was linked to support that claim actually stated that Free Republic did not host child pornography.The offending Daily Finance passage now reads:"... On similar grounds, he was prohibited from writing about the conservative website...

    MILWAUKEE (AP) -- For students entering college this fall, e-mail is too slow, phones have never had cords and the computers they played with as kids are now in museums. The Class of 2014 thinks of Clint Eastwood more as a sensitive director than as Dirty Harry urging punks to "go ahead, make my day." Few incoming freshmen know how to write in cursive or have ever worn a wristwatch....

    Mike's post yesterday about the NAACPs recent goals to distract from Obamas failures by leveling charges of racism is a great compliment to this one by Bob Owens. Bob describes how Think Progress, a blog founded by the George Soros insidious group The Center for American Progress (CAP) (and a very influential group inside the Obama administration), is putting out false propaganda to paint the Tea Party as racist. Days after the NAACP passed a resolution calling all Tea Party members as racist. (h/t Gateway Pundit) Think there is no coordination going on with this White House? Do you remember...

    (CNN) -- During a speech at an event called "Freedom Fest," former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin warned Tea Party activists that while government spending was a bad thing, conservatives should not go too far and start calling for reductions in the military budget. While Palin told the crowd in Norfolk, Virginia, "Something has to be done urgently to stop the out-of-control Obama-Reid-Pelosi spending machine," she also told them, "We must make sure, however, that we do nothing to undermine the effectiveness of our military." Palin's speech touched on a historic problem for the conservative movement. Ever since conservatives embraced a...

    There's a hole in the bottom of the ocean. Unemployment is still near 10 percent. There are two wars underway. And what are conservative pundits fretting about? That this year President Obama won't be laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day. The liberal watchdog outfit, Media Matters, has been keeping track of this latest right-wing meme: - Glenn Beck says, "Obama is skipping out on a Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington Cemetery because he'll be in Chicago on vacation. I'm sorry, I don't ever, ever question the president's vacation. I...
