CBS blew it in not picking Ferguson to replace Letterman
Craig Ferguson is a class act. He's also the wittiest, funniest-on-his-feet, and best at putting a guest at ease of anyone I've ever seen do a talk show. I've been looking forward to snarky (and increasingly unfunny) left-winger David Letterman's retirement...

McCarthyism: the Left's default position
Herein Dennis Prager explains why the Mozilla purge needs to be the occasion of that rarest of occurrences- a boycott by those on the Right. He also explains an essential difference between the Right and the Left: that for the Right, McCarthyism was an isol...

Despite the hype, it was just your average lunar eclipse
"Blood moon," my hemorrhoids . At least in downtown Des Moines, this morning's lunar eclipse was a burnt orange a little darker than the piping on the Bears' uniforms. Maybe Texas Longhorn orange. Which is about average for a lunar eclipse. I've seen a coup...

"Progressive" fundamentalism.
No, Paul Krugman. Facts most certainly do not have a liberal bias. And yes, people who disagree with the Left have the same rights as the Left does. Sorry, but's that's kinda the basis for our system of government. Interesting, though, how much the "progres...

It should have been Ferguson, the best interviewer and spontaneous comic ever to host a talk show. Instead, CBS has replaced a snarky left- winger with another snarky left-winger. I'll still catch the last five minues of The Late Show in order to make sure to see Craig's monologue. But that's it.
