In the 1989 movie, “When Harry Met Sally,” there is a famous restaurant scene in which Sally (Meg Ryan) and Harry (Billy Crystal) are having lunch when the subject turns to sex, and Sally feels called upon to prove that women can fake orgasms. Harry doesn’t believe it, so Sally starts to moan and groan and thrash around in her chair, seemingly oblivious to her surroundings. When the waiter approaches an elderly woman (director Rob Reiner’s mother, Estelle) and asks …

I fully grasp why some people object to the way I tend to hop from topic to topic. They would prefer if, like all the other pundits, I stuck to one subject. The truth is that I, too, would prefer it that way. However, at the rate at which the world displays its insanity, even with three or four articles a week and half a dozen or so items in each one of them, I keep falling behind. So try …

Just when you think every actor is a narcissistic nincompoop along comes Sir Ben (“Gandhi,” “Schindler’s List”) Kingsley, who sadly observed that Europe never grieved over the Holocaust. Asked if he thought it could ever happen again, he said, “Of course,” noting that Hitler once asked “Who remembers the Armenians?” referencing the first holocaust of the 20th century when 1.5 million Armenian Christians were slaughtered by the Islamic Turks.

Relating a personal anecdote, Kingsley reports that he was on the set …

Barack Obama keeps telling us that the overwhelming majority of Muslims are wonderful, peace-loving, people who oppose terrorism. I would love to believe that, but I only have his word for it. And by now, I believe we all know what his word is worth.

All the evidence happens to point in the opposite direction. Although most Muslim nations are dictatorships run by royal families or mullahs, we have seen free elections on occasion. In so-called Palestine, the people elected Hamas, …

It seems that Brian Williams is a victim of his own pathology. It’s not as if anyone put a gun to his head and told him to lie about events in Iraq. But he didn’t want to be dismissed as merely an observer. He wanted to be seen as heroic.

We’d all like to be seen that way, but he was willing to lie for the glory. In fact, he was so desperate that as a member of his town’s volunteer …

Okay, I wasn’t on the Titanic. But had I been born 40 years earlier and had my parents been English and decided to sail to America, I could have been on the doomed ship.

Apparently that is the sort of thing that passes for the truth in certain liberal circles. So when Brian Williams, the NBC news anchor, claimed for years that his helicopter had been shot down in Iraq, he was merely channeling his inner Hillary Clinton, who insisted in …

Taking a page from Obama’s playbook, Al Jazeera America (and how is that for an oxymoron?) has banned such words as “extremist,” “Islamist” and “jihad” from its broadcasts, suggesting it may soon be an all-music network.

In explaining the rationale for all this pandering to terrorists, an AJA executive said, “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.” I didn’t catch the fellow’s name, but it might have been Michael Moore, Bill Maher or Josh Earnest.

Speaking of the sleazy, slick-haired Maher, …

Not since Santa Claus was in short pants has anyone been as generous as Obama when it comes to bestowing gifts. But unlike Santa, Obama insists on rewarding those who have been naughty and turning into Scrooge when it comes to those who are nice.

Although all it would take to bring about immigration reform is for Obama to build a 21st century fence along our southern border, he keeps it as porous as possible because he wants the nation flooded …

Lawmakers Convene For Opening Of The 114th Congress

As many of you know, I have long trumpeted my support of Scott Walker in the 2016 presidential race. I regard it as a surplus of riches that we Republicans will get to decide between the governor of Wisconsin and several other first-rate candidates, whereas the Democrats seem to be stuck, like prehistoric animals finding themselves knee-deep in the tar pits, with two left-wing dinosaurs named Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren.

One thing for certain is that there is much that …

The source of the title is Yogi Berra, the Hall of Fame Yankee catcher and part time pundit. And never have his words been truer than they were on January 20th, when Barack Obama delivered his penultimate State of the Union address.

Because I feel it’s my duty, I actually watch these snoozearamas every year. But I can’t tell you what a relief it is to realize I only have to sit through one more with Barack Obama at the podium.
