Welcome to the real world, Teach! I take that back — in the real world the lot of ‘em probably would have been fired for this stunt, but I do appreciate the irony: teachers skipped school to protest, ostensibly because they didn’t want to lose money… and doing so cost them money: The Port Washington-Saukville […]

Hard to believe it’s been 31 years since the Miracle on Ice. I was 13 years old and I remember the game wasn’t even aired live on TV — it was tape delayed — I watched it later in the afternoon. I suppose it was a given that the Russians would put the US through […]

At what point does this “new tone” start? For the left, never — for the rest of us it was supposed to start weeks ago. Here’s the latest example of a liberal’s idea of toned-down rhetoric: Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) fired up a group of union members in Boston with a speech urging them to […]

Do you have an overwhelming urge to drop some firecrackers in that thing just to scare the sith out of them? (h/t Weasel Zippers)

Your chances of being run over by a fleeing Democrat have increased fifty-fold this month alone. First, Wisconsin Democrats ran from the job they were elected to do, and now Indiana Democrats are following suit: Seats on one side of the Indiana House were nearly empty today as House Democrats departed the the state rather […]

A lot of people have trouble understanding why some Americans who are being lectured on health and told why they should skip vacations make a fuss when those issuing the decrees violate them constantly. I often note the “for thee but not for me” hypocrisy too. However, I didn’t say a word when Drudge linked […]

It’s probably too much to hope for that “the crackhead” wins, isn’t it? Today’s the day Chicagoans both past and present select a new leader, but Rahm’s got such a comfortable lead that maybe the dead can remain sleeping: With the 82nd anniversary of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre safely behind them, Chicagoans will go […]

Me neither — but one of Wolfgang Puck’s restaurants in DC is offering exactly what the Obama’s had when they went out for FLOTUS’s birthday. Obviously the food is healthy and low-fat, consistent with the “Let’s Move” health campaign. Just kidding. Here’s what you’ll get for $85 a person: First Course Spicy Tuna Tartare, Sesame-Miso […]

It’s Presidents Day, and do you know what that means? Well, sure, mattress sales — but this is also a day where I look around at some of the people who might have ended up as president but thankfully never did. Tied at the top of the list with Al Gore and Mike Dukakis is […]

Ah, the great lessons on civics, morality and ethics that Wisconsin teachers are imparting on school kids this month… That photo is linked from this Tweet from a pro-union person at the rally, who writes, “Group of doctors here signing notes for absent teachers.” Nice. I think we’ve found our first Obamacare czars — ones […]
