Krugman Whines: ‘Where Have All the Grown-ups Gone?’
December 9th, 2021 9:25 AM

Bob Dole (R-KS) to pontificate how “his life story also reminds us of a time when public figures were supposed to show some sense of responsibility — to possess basic decency, to…

September 13th, 2016 4:35 PM
CNN International host Christiane Amanpour was at it again on Monday night in flashing her far-left ideology as she used her eponymous show to angrily maim critics of Hillary Clinton and (a select few) in the media as sexist for raising questions about her health and hiding the pneumonia diagnosis and unwilling to let “a girl have a sick day or two.”
USAT, WashPost Rewrite History, Give Clinton All Welfare Reform Credit
August 22nd, 2016 5:50 PM
On August 22, 1996, President Bill Clinton signed the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act, aka "welfare reform," into law. Writeups today at USA Today and in the Washington Post would make readers believe that credit for this accomplishment belongs entirely to Bill Clinton, and that it was his advocacy that brought it all about.

Daily Kos Contrasts Old-School GOP With New ‘Bats**t Crazy’ Versio
July 26th, 2014 7:45 AM
Liberals like to opine that righty Republicans of the fairly recent past, such as Barry Goldwater, William F. Buckley Jr., or even Ronald Reagan, were nowhere near as wild-eyed as the Tea Party crowd. In a Tuesday Daily Kos post by the mononymous Hunter, it was Bob Dole (granted, no one’s idea of a movement conservative) who represented the party’s rational “old guard”…

PBS Anchor Mourns the Good Old Days of Penny Candy and 'Moderate' Repu
April 26th, 2014 7:07 AM
There are few things more predictable than liberal TV news anchors pining for the good old days when moderate Republicans voted for tax increases (like the 1990 budget deal) or expanded Medicare coverage (George W. Bush, 2002).
Notice they don’t warmly recall when Democrats voted for the Reagan tax cuts or B-1 bombers and aid to the Nicaraguan rebels. Those Democratic “sellouts…

With Grover Norquist’s help, Bill Maher once again made a fool of himself Friday evening.
