    Today's the official launch date for my new book, Unhinged: Exposing Liberals Gone Wild: I had fun with this one (wait 'til you see the back cover) and think you'll enjoy it--or, if you're on the other side of the aisle, you'll enjoy hating it. (Brian Maloney and Instapundit have more on the flame wars. Thanks, gentlemen.) The fabulous Roman Genn did the front-cover illustration. Left-wing lunatics provided the endorsement blurbs on the back cover. My intrepid researchers, Lisa de Pasquale and Floyd Resnick of New York Close Protection Services, dug up many of the photos featured inside the book's...

  • 'Jail Me' Judy: I Like Dowd & Dirty Maureen, Too

    Embattled New York Times reporter Judith Miller responded to catty colleague Maureen Dowd's snippy column with a seven-point rebuttal sent by e-mail, New York magazine is reporting. What were Miller's first words? "I like you, too" — a direct attack on Dowd's now-infamous lead, "I've always liked Judy Miller." The flamethrowing Dowd used the sugarcoated line before she trashed her colleague as a seat-stealer and for her "tropism toward powerful men," before calling for her resignation. But the magazine shows today it's Dowd — rather than Miller — who has earned her stripes as a red-haired temptress. Along with her...

    October 26, 2005 -- PISTOL-packing Joe Mantegna is blasting a chink in the politically correct armor of some Hollywood heavyweights — he says they love to own and shoot guns. The "Joan of Arcadia" star says that such left-leaning showbiz types as Steven Spielberg, Leonardo DiCaprio and playwright David Mamet are all avid shooters. "Lots of guys in Hollywood love to shoot," Mantegna, a longtime gun sportsman, tells Fade In magazine. "But they ain't gonna talk to you."

    A driver for the Rev. Al Sharpton led Ellis County sheriff's deputies on a nine-mile chase at speeds up to 110 mph before state troopers stopped the car, authorities said. The driver was rushing Sharpton to the airport after his visit with anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan on Sunday at her camp outside President Bush's ranch in Crawford. The car carrying Sharpton and two other passengers was clocked doing 110 mph in a 65 mph zone on Interstate 35 in Ellis County in North Texas, said Lt. Danny Williams. The car ignored deputies' attempts to stop it and continued speeding and...

    To parents concerned about public education leftist bias: here is the exact content of an email I just sent to my kid's freshman History teacher. I welcome any comments in case I receive a backlash from the principal, to whom I cc'ed in on the message, and possibly the teacher himself:Hello Mr. ____: I am ____ ____'s mom. He shared some things from your class presentation today that concerned his father and me. He said you stated, upon displaying an image on the overhead projector of a person crying, that the man was reacting to the assasination of a Kennedy...

    Ex-President Bill Clinton said Monday that he had to assure world leaders that there was nothing seriously wrong with America after the Congress impeached him in 1998. "During that time, a lot of world leaders would ask, 'What is going on? Is this serious?'" he told New York magazine. "I kept assuring them that nothing bad had happened to America," he recalled, "but that we periodically went through spasms." Interviewed while traveling in Africa, the ex-president claimed, "Africans saw [my impeachment] for exactly what it was: an abuse of power." "They got it here," he insisted. The magazine noted that...

    Ex-president Bill Clinton now says he would have taken out Osama bin Laden before the 9/11 attacks – if only the FBI and CIA had been able to prove the al-Qaida mastermind was behind the attack on the U.S.S. Cole. "I desperately wish that I had been president when the FBI and CIA finally confirmed, officially, that bin Laden was responsible for the attack on the U.S.S. Cole," Clinton tells New York magazine this week. "Then we could have launched an attack on Afghanistan early." "I don’t know if it would have prevented 9/11," he added. "But it certainly would...

    NEW HAVEN — A two-hour animal rights demonstration on the Green Monday sparked outrage instead of sympathy from the public. "This is the most racist thing I’ve ever seen on the Green. How dare you," roared Philip Goldson, 43, of New Haven at the protest organizers at Church and Chapel streets. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, a national animal rights group, posted giant photographs of people, mostly black Americans, being tortured, sold and killed, next to photographs of animals, including cattle and sheep, being tortured, sold and killed.

    Hello ladies. I am writing to initiate negotiations for a legal settlement that I think will be in the best interests of ASU feminists. When I saw your website, I felt immediately sexually harassed as I read the following quotes: "A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle." - Gloria Steinem "Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult." - Charlotte Whitton "Sure God created man before woman. But then you always make a rough draft before the final masterpiece." - Anonymous

    AL Franken says 20,000 poor kids and old people weren't the only victims of an exec who allegedly arranged a Bronx charity's mega-buck "loan" to Air America. "About three weeks into the life of Air America, I became an involuntary investor — I stopped being paid," Franken told listeners yesterday on WLIB (1190 AM). It was the first time the all-liberal network's biggest star addressed at length a controversial $875,000 loan from the disgraced — and now de-funded — Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club. Since The Post first reported the story on July 30, Attorney General Eliot Spitzer announced...

    As more comes to light about Diane Griego Erwin, the former Sacramento Bee columnist, the more revealing and instructive the story becomes. It is a story we mentioned in a recent Media Monitor, but much more has come to light. In one sense, it is another validation for the New Media, specifically the blogs; and for another, it shines a light on problems related to diversity in the newsrooms, when diversity strictly refers to skin color. It also spells potential big trouble for the Sacramento Bee editor, Rick Rodriguez, the new president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors (ASNE)....

    RANGEL'S SOLICITATION Rep. Charles Rangel has written to lobbyists who represent corporate interests before the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, where he is the ranking Democrat, asking for contributions from $1,000 to $10,000 "to underwrite" his 75th birthday party. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and retired Gen. Wesley Clark will address the event starting at 6 p.m. Aug. 3 at the Tavern on the Green in Manhattan. "I would like to be able to list your name on the invitation," Rangel said in his solicitation. He admonished the lobbyists to "fax the attached response sheet back to my office as...

    "A solemn undertaking" by the Allies Monday June 30, 1919The Guardian The formal end of the world-war was reached at twelve minutes pat three on Saturday afternoon, when the German delegates signed the Peace Treaty in the splendid Hall of Mirrors, where the German Empire was proclaimed. The German delegates, led by Herr Hermann Muller, the Foreign Minister, signed first on the invitation of M. Clemenceau, and were followed by the representatives of 26 Allied and Associated nations in alphabetical order. The Chinese alone among the belligerent Powers withheld their signature from the treaty. Their request that the question of...

    Washington ( - The woman who managed the 2000 presidential campaign of Democrat Al Gore urged fellow liberals at the Take Back America conference to work hard "over the next 523 days and take back America and give [Vice President] Dick Cheney and the rest of those creeps their one way ticket back home." But Donna Brazile, who was clearly speaking about the November 7, 2006 election, confused both her mathematical and political calculations. As of Wednesday, there were 524 days until the 2006 election; and regardless of the election results, Cheney's term as vice president isn't due to expire...

    Ex-president Bill Clinton is backing away from the deal he made with Independent Counsel Robert Ray four years ago, which required him to admit that he gave false testimony under oath to a federal grand jury. In an explosive interview with NBC's Brian William broadcast Wednesday night, Clinton insisted that articles of impeachment passed by the House in 1998 - which included the accusation that he lied under oath - were false. "The charges that the House sent to the Senate were false," Clinton claimed for the first time since signing off on his 2001 plea bargain with Ray. "So...

    WHY IS ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ALMOST universally seen as a left-wing issue? A lively debate within the "environmental community" makes one reason clear. Many professional environmentalists want it that way. Sound evidence--and the actual needs of environmental protection--come second to that agenda.This debate began with the release last fall of an essay called "The Death of Environmentalism" by two long-time environmental activists, Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus. Later published with periodic follow-on comments in the online magazine Grist, the piece has become must reading among environmental types. It attempts to explain what the authors see as the 30-year decline in the...

Bush at a John Kerry fund-raiser, told Air America's "Politically Correct" host David Bender: "My party abandoned me. There's no other way to say it: they put their tails between their legs and they ran. I've closed my eyes to the party. I haven't turned my back on them, but I no longer feel comfortable saying that I feel like I'm represented by them. Until people can stand up for what's right in the face of whatever...
