    Sen. Barbara Boxer wants to add a new element to the Keystone XL oil pipeline debate: its effects on health. The California Democrat claims negative health effects from the proposed pipeline's development were ignored by the State Department's environmental impact review. "The Environmental Impact Statement was woefully inadequate when it came to exploring human impacts of the pipeline," Boxer said Wednesday at a press conference held with Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) and anti-Keystone XL activists and environmentalists. She said Keystone will add pollutants to the air that will increase the likelihood of peopel getting cancer or heart disease. "I do...

    Hey, did you hear the one about the disappearing “Nigerian email scammers”? They’ve “become a lot less active lately” because they’ve “all been hired to run the Obamacare website.” That’s Sen. Ted Cruz, folks, on his Reactionary Real America Victory Tour Monday night, and he’ll be here all week, maybe all decade. Tip your waiter!Declaring that our first black president’s signature policy achievement is being run by “Nigerian email scammers” is GOP dog-whistle politics at its finest. Of course, Cruz wasn’t just going for cheap laughs at the expense of the Affordable Care Act. He knows it’s a short hop...
  • Obama Court Nominee Can't Tell A Motive From An Excuse

    President Barack Obama's nominee to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals evidently doesn't know the difference between a motive and an excuse. Judge Robert Chatigny, a federal court judge based in Connecticut, was picked by the president despite a judicial record which includes trying to bully a convicted serial killer's attorney into delaying his client's execution despite lower court rulings and the client's own instructions, Or perhaps he was picked because of such an attempt at judicial activism.
  • Richard Belzer Unloads a ‘Heil Hannity’ Salute on Fox News (Richard Belzer "BELCHER")

    Sean Hannity invited radical-left actor Richard Belzer to his "Great American Panel" on February 13, and Belzer was hardly returning the honor. After Belzer tried to play professor and suggest that Reaganism was Hobbesian and "antitheticallly opposed" to John Locke and Jefferson, he raised his hand to interrupt, and then decided to offer his other arm in a "Heil Hannity" salute. When will lefties stop comparing conservatives to Nazis? Here's how Belzer greeted Sean's discussion of the "We're All Socialists Now" cover of Newsweek: SEAN HANNITY: The headline is we're all socialists. This is the single biggest spending bill in...

    Lots of people love this movie of course. But I’m convinced it’s for the wrong reasons. Because to me “It’s a Wonderful Life” is anything but a cheery holiday tale. Sitting in that dark public high school classroom, I shuddered as the projector whirred and George Bailey’s life unspooled.

    John McCain chose the supremely under-qualified Sarah Palin as his running mate partly because she is a woman. If you have a problem with that, you're a sexist. She talks incessantly about being a mother of five and uses her newborn, Trig, who has Down syndrome, as a campaign prop. If you wonder how she'll handle all those kids and the Veep job too, you're a super-sexist. "When do they ever ask a man that question?" charges that fiery feminist Rudy Giuliani. Indeed, Palin, who went back to work when Trig was three days old, gets nothing but praise from...

    The Mike-and-Leo activist double-bill hit Cannes this weekend, as Michael Moore and Leonardo DiCaprio each unveiled new films they referred to as "calls to action." Moore earned tears and cheers from a standing-room only crowd with his new documentary, Sicko, focusing on the failures of the American health care system. Separately, DiCaprio, the star of Titanic and The Departed, talked up his new documentary, The 11th Hour, on the failing health of the planet. Moore's last two documentaries, Bowling for Columbine (2002) and Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) have become two of the most successful documentaries in history (Fahrenheit 9/11 earned $122-million...

    Appearing on Bloomberg News, Sen. Hillary Clinton: "Well I've heard from a number of my friends and I've certainly clarified with them any misunderstanding that anyone had, because I disagree with General Pace completely. I do not think homosexuality is immoral. But the point I was trying to make is that this policy of Don't Ask, Don't Tell is not working. I have been against it for many years because I think it does a grave injustice to patriotic Americans who want to serve their country. And so I have called for its repeal and I'd like to follow the...

    A leading philosopher, who has been compared to Bertrand Russell and Jean-Paul Sartre and praised by Noam Chomsky, says Palestinian "terrorism" is a moral response to Israeli ethnic cleansing. Ted Honderich, a professor of philosophy at University College London, plans to take the same message to the Edinburgh International Book Fair on Thursday, where tickets to hear his speech have already sold out. The philosopher plans to begin his talk at the Opus Theatre with a close look at definitions of terrorism, particularly when it applies to Palestine and the expansion of Israel outside its 1967 borders. He concludes it...
