Do You Smell Something In The Air? Hugo Chavez Does In Copenhagen »

Oh, what a turn of events, and so quickly, too. Remember when Hugo Chavez called Bush “the devil” at another UN meeting? Many of us thought that was hilarious. Here’s the clip as a reminder: Yes, yes, that was mighty funny. Finally, someone was saying what so many of us lefties thought.

International Treaty Could Erode 2nd Amendment Rights »

We have been exposed to an education lately on International Law and the Rule of Law. Everyone has been following the torture memos and some of us have a quaint understanding of how the U.S. signing the treaty at the Geneva Convention forcibly influenced laws that we were required, by the treaty, to add to [...]

brilliant obama: i was three months old during bay of pigs »

(bumped up from early Monday morning) In a follow up to Susan’s earlier post, I wanted to point out an error in Obama’s response to the 50 minute diatribe launched by Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, where he criticized the US for what he called 100 years of terroristic aggression in Central America and denounced the [...]

[Angry Update] Spineless Obama Gets Served, Again »

(Updated and bumped up from late night Saturday, and again from Sunday afternoon.) It’s because I’m new and special!, PBO thinks, that Noriega omitted me from his rant! Today, at the Summit of the Americas, President Obama listened to “a 50-minute diatribe from socialist Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega that lashed out at a century of [...]

Hey Barack, Press Coverage Ain’t Respect »

Aretha sang about it, but Barack can’t find it. R-E-S-P-E-C-T. On every continent, the flashbulbs pop and the ink runs, but President Barack Obama is getting schooled by the world’s leaders and tyrants alike–from Sarkozy to Lulu to Chavez to Kim Jong Il–who clearly neither respect nor fear him or our country. He’s a smooth [...]

Obama Stunts Chavez »

Not Quite a Handshake.       The photograph is meant to tell the story, but at this point there is fresh confusion.  At the OAS confab at Trinidad, POTUS Obama sought out POV-for-Life Hugo Chavez in order to speak in friendship.  The early report is that  Mr. Obama said, “I want to be your [...]

[Updated] Chávez Calls Obama an “Ignoramus” »

Susan’s Notes: Well!!! It’s happened, after all the conjecture the past few days speculating if the two men would meet. Today, they shook hands. From the April 18, 2009 Times UK, “President Obama in historic handshake with Hugo Chavez of Venezuela“: All the conjecture and today’s meeting reminded me of Truthteller’s excellent piece on March [...]

A Little Humor * Late Night & Early Bird Open Thread!* »

My aunt sent this to me today:

The Biden “Gaffe”: A “race” for the soul of the next President? [update] »

Update note by editor: Steve Diamond is a professor of law and expert in global economics. His blog is “Global Labor and Politics.” Just when you had wished you had indeed heard the last of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, it turns out they are publishing a new manifesto described in brief on What [...]

Au so Corrente: the new left McCarthyism »

If they start to foam at the mouth about you I guess what you are saying is having some kind of impact, so the lumping of my work along with others under the title of a recent blog called “Lies, Damnable Lies, and Political Commentary,” should perhaps be viewed as a kind of praise. But [...]
