Both Barack Obama and his mini-me, Eric Holder, felt the necessity of addressing the goony birds who flocked to Al Sharpton’s annual National Action Network, a confab that gives racially inclined extortionists the opportunity to get together and compare notes.

When it was Holder’s turn to bellyache at the dais, he said, “What other Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?”  He was referring to his appearance before a congressional committee a day earlier, at which …

As many of you already know, I refuse to access links or watch videos on my computer.  I have tried to get the word out that although I appreciate my readers thinking of me, I don’t care to spend my time that way.

Recently, I spelled it out for one of them: “Years ago,” I wrote, “ when I was still reviewing movies, the pornographic “I Am Curious Yellow” was the talk of the nation, but I decided I didn’t wish …

Crime Scene

It’s been called to my attention by a few readers – a little too gleefully in a couple of cases – that I goofed when I recently passed along the news that Barack Obama had opened up gas stations in certain urban enclaves that, thanks to a little known section of the Affordable Care Act, were offering free gas to poor people.

Apparently it was part of a satirical piece that had been posted on the Internet and red-flagged by Snopes.  …

It’s no secret that the Left tends to be totalitarian in nature.  Whether it was Hitler’s Germany, Mussolini’s Italy, Stalin’s Russia, Castro’s Cuba or Mao’s China, there’s nothing that pleases a Progressive more than a dictator with his boot on the neck of those they regard as a lower form of animal life: namely, conservatives.

We can now add Obama’s America to the long and dismal list.  Whether it’s using the IRS to punish his political foes; the Justice Department to …

Where does Obama keep finding these guys?  As if Eric Holder wasn’t horrible enough, Obama tried to push Debo Adegbile, whose most notable achievement was keeping a cop killer from being executed, into the Department of Justice, turning it into even more of a sewer than it already was.

Next, he decided to make Vivak Hallegere Murthy, who apparently regards the Second Amendment to be a greater threat to the nation’s health than booze, tobacco and Katherine Sebelius, put together, America’s …

In my book, “67 Conservatives You Should Meet Before You Die,” one of the questions I asked of all my subjects, who ranged, alphabetically, from Ablow, Keith, a prominent psychiatrist, to Zucker, David, a famous screenwriter-director, was which eight people who had ever lived, they would invite to a dinner party.

Being conservatives, it wasn’t too surprising that two people who would never have to pay for another meal if they ever showed up ready to tie on the old feedbag, …

When my dog Angel and I take off on her two daily constitutionals, we merely circle the block.  Under normal circumstances, it would only take me about 10 minutes.  Instead, it usually requires half an hour.  That’s because Angel needs to stop and sniff just about every bush, tree, wall and fire hydrant, we pass.  It was driving me nuts until I realized that my email is her peemail, and God knows I spend far more time dealing with mine.  …

We have heard Obama blathering for so long about seven million sign-ups to the Affordable Care Act being a sure sign of success that, like the audience at a magic show, we have fallen for the misdirection that is the secret of every magician’s sleight-of-hand.

To begin with, we are being asked to ignore the fact that millions who have signed up used to pay for their own health insurance before ObamaCare forced their policies to be ruled null and void.  …

Because it’s so easy and so much fun to belittle politicians, and because the fun isn’t limited to just Republicans or Democrats, we often lose sight of the fact that these folks are not members of royal families who inherit power the way others may inherit a farm or a family photo album.  They actually have to run for office and be elected, even if their names are Bush, Clinton or Rockefeller.

That being said, can you even imagine how stupid …

I don’t recall a time when it was so profitable to be in the polling industry.  It seems as if there’s a new one every five minutes, and most of them, you’ve probably noticed, show Obama cratering at the speed of light.  As a result, Republicans can hardly conceal their glee.  I, on the other hand, look at the numbers and I feel like tearing my hair out.  That is, I would if I had hair.  Instead, I’d settle for …
