10 Liberal Limericks for 2013

In clear violation of op-ed protocol, this week I’m suspending prose and having a little good, clean, limericky fun at liberals’ expense because – well, because they just make it so darn easy. (Warning: Some are bad and others worse. Side effects may include groaning, nausea, vomiting and involuntary eye-rolling.)

Here they are in no […]

Is Christmas Dead Yet?

(Minutes before this posting, I read Erick Erickson’s for today on Townhall.com: “Why December 25th?” Though Mr. Erickson’s argument is entirely different in detail, the reader will find that its thrust is identical to mine.)

December 25 isn’t really a celebration of the winter solstice: our would-be neo-pagan brethren are as misinformed about that as […]

Joseph BH McMillan Reviews The God Argument: The Case against Religion and for Humanism, by AC Grayling.

The best I could say about The God Argument is that it is just another contribution to the singularly undistinguished tradition of the ‘thoroughly mediocre … utilitarian Englishmen’ who walk ‘clumsily and honorably in Bentham’s footsteps’. It also has that ‘small-soul smell’ of the ‘socialist dolts and flatheads’ in their drive for the ‘animalization of […]

Homosexuals Get Duck Dy-Nasty

When I saw the headline yesterday about how “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson had commented on a certain sexuality-defined group, I wondered how long it would be before he got the “treatment.”
