What Jon Stewart Didn’t Ask Jimmy Carter

Former President Jimmy Carter was a guest on the Daily Show recently and when the subject turned to Paris and Islamic violence in general, Mr. Carter said this about root causes: “Well, one of the origins for it is the Palestinian problem. And this aggravates people who are affiliated in any way with the Arab…

The other day, one of my liberal friends posted one of those sharable, meme images featuring a quote from comedian Stephen Colbert on her Facebook page. It has become a fairly popular quote – one that I’ve seen posted a number of times over the past couple of months: “Global warming isn’t real because I…

Islamic Terrorism by Any Other Name …

More than a million people turned out. More than 40 presidents and prime ministers were there. It was, as the New York Times reported, “the most striking show of solidarity in the West against the threat of Islamic extremism since the Sept. 11 attacks.” But President Obama did not go to Paris.

High Noon in Hollywood …

For the past few days I’ve been thinking a lot about who bothers me more – the little psycho with the $2 haircut who runs North Korea or the liberal weasels in the entertainment industry who don’t have the guts to say, “Hey Kim, bite me! We’re running the movie about you … and if…

A few years ago, First Lady Michelle Obama was a guest on David Letterman’s show. She told a humorous story that night about a trip she had taken to a Target store. Dressed somewhat in disguise in hopes of avoiding detection and drawing a crowd, she shopped the aisles until one of the other shoppers…
