Is Laura Ingraham really a Nazi?

Is Laura Ingraham really a Nazi?
I read something on a Left-wing-QAnon-type blog once that has me tuning into The Ingraham Angle every now and then just to ponder the implication. It was probably nonsense and that kind of lame maliciousness is the reason there’s no Left wing counterpart to the Right’s conspiracy-driven, alternate reality, Q-niverse. Lefties don’t have wild conspiracies... Read more »

Melania Trump, like the rest of us, never understood the meaning of #bebest

Melania Trump, like the rest of us, never understood the meaning of #bebest
One thing that can be said about Melania, perhaps the only generous thing that can be said is that she was a First Lady like no other. The first foreign born First Lady in 192 years and superficially glamorous, Mel (I call her Mel) studied architecture and design at the University of Ljubljana for one... Read more »

Jenna Ryan is guilty AND stupid, an unfortunate combination (for her)
There’s a reason that Texas drawls make people sound stupid and Jenna Ryan may be the poster girl for just that.

A Mr. Richard Feder from Fort Lee, N.J., emailed me the following last week: Is it true that Biden wants to make this country socialist or is that just republican propaganda? Recalling Mr. Feder from Saturday Night Live’s Roseanne Roseannadanna segments, I didn’t take the question seriously. Turns out, Mr. Feder was dead serious. This... Read more »

Kamala Harris will write history, but not all of us will enjoy reading it

Kamala Harris will write history, but not all of us will enjoy reading it
In a perfect world, the election of Kamala Harris to the office of Vice President of the United States would be a joyous occasion. Ah, but for that perfect world. I was planning to vote for Harris in the Illinois primary and felt robbed when she dropped out of the race.  I am truly delighted... Read more »

Ashli Babbitt served her country for 14 years in the Air Force, Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard and we owe her our thanks for her service.

Racism wrapped in specious, disingenuous arguments is still racism

Racism wrapped in specious, disingenuous arguments is still racism
Specious:  superficially plausible, but actually wrong. Misleading in appearance, misleadingly attractive. Disingenuous:  not candid or sincere, pretending that one knows less about something than one really does. John from Arizona sent me the following: The Wichita Horror: 20th Anniversary, by Jack Kerwick.  The piece starts out, In the era of Black Lives Matter when, as... Read more »
