I have some very exciting news: I have found my long-lost identical twin. It’s amazing, really. Like me, my twin grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area during the 60s and 70s. Like me, my twin went to UC Berkeley and found Leftist antics revolting. Like me, my twin now does conservative commentary, with lots of self-deprecating parentheticals peppering observations about the illogic, hypocrisy, and mental sterility of the Leftist intellectual universe. And like me, my twin is short (or at least, claims to be short). Okay, I’ll admit that there are a few differences.

CONGRESSMAN JAMES CLYBURN: “This young African American woman, I might say”

In a classic example of the media accepting the terrorist´s ideas that Israel is the bad actor in the Middle East, The New York Times had an interesting way to describe the more than 150 rockets that Palestinians have launched on Israeli civilians over the last week or so. The Times wrote that those attacks were "called rocket attacks" by Israel as if the Israeli´s were simply making unsubstantiated claims about the attacks.

In a sort of schizoid report on MSNBC, The New York Times both admits that the now second place cabler is liberal, yet on the other hand claims that it the first such example in television history.

I´m not yet ready to buy completely what Andrew Bocevich is selling... but I´m more than ready to give his goods a good gander:

For instance, why did it take until the 1960´s for the final Civil Rights law to be passed? Because it took that long for the Dems to throw in the towel on segregation. They blocked anti-lynching laws in the 1920´s and 1930´s, they threw blacks off the land in the New Deal, but by the 1950s, the Republicans were able to enforce Brown v. Board of Education (Little Rock) and pass two civil rights laws.
