Is Liberalism Exhausted?

Jonah Goldberg,   Canaries are not very formidable birds, but they have their uses. For instance, coal miners learned over a century ago that when canaries gag and drop dead at the bottom of the cage, it’s a sign that maybe there’s something wrong with the air in the mine. MSNBC is not a very formidable […] Continue reading →

 Conservative Republicans urged House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner not to capitulate in a fight with Democrats over President Barack Obama’s immigration policy that threatens a partial Homeland Security shutdown later this week.

Obama is a good BS’er, but he’s a terrible liar

David Harsanyi, It’s pretty simple. If you lie, lie about the right things.  It’s not difficult to imagine a pro-choice candidate winning the presidency.
