Everyone calm down, the Gillette ad is just fine

A new commercial from Gillette opens with audio of chattering news reports about the #MeToo movement, bullying and "toxic masculinity." A narrator says in a sonorous (and masculine) voice: "Is this the best a man can get?" — a variation on the company's 30-year old motto. Published January 15, 2019

The @#%&* Democrats just can't stop with the profanity

Far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib last week went on a profanity-laced tirade against President Trump. On just her first day in Congress, the Michigan Democrat spat out some vile bile against the president. Published January 8, 2019

George H.W. Bush: Four perfect eulogies for an incredible life

How do you take a man — a 94-year-old man, a man who spent his life in service of his country, enlisting in the military at 18 years old to serve in World War II, where his plane was shot down and he barely escaped capture, a man who went on to become a congressman, an ambassador to China, a CIA director, a vice president and the 41st president of United States — and sum up his life in a 90-minute memorial?

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, 75, said, "I think it's totally appropriate for people to look at me and say, if I were to run for office again, 'Well God darn, you're old.' Well chronologically, I am old."

2020 Dems are a pathetic pack of losers

Yes, 2020 is right around the corner, people. Once we get past this midterm election in two weeks, it's a flat-out blitz to Election Day 2020. Sure, no one cares (seriously, NO ONE CARES!), but that's never stopped politicians from running for the White House before and, unfortunately, it won't stop them now. Published October 23, 2018

The Democrats' case against Kavanaugh is falling apart fast

First, let's dispose of the tales of the two accusers of Brett Kavanaugh who came out after flaky California college professor Christine Blasey Ford claimed that the Supreme Court nominee sexually groped her 36 years ago when he was 17. This won't take long. Published October 2, 2018

This image released by Simon & Schuster shows "Fear: Trump in the White House," by Bob Woodward, available on Sept. 11. The book has set off a yes-no war between author Bob Woodward and the president. (Simon & Schuster via AP)

Woodward's book: Another work of non-fiction fiction?

In his book "Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA 1981-1987," Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward wrote about a deathbed conversation he had with CIA Director William J. Casey. President Reagan, a Republican, was at the time in the throes of the Iran-Contra affair, and Mr. Woodward just happened to get Casey to admit that he had known about the diversion of Iran arms sale money to the Contras.

Hey, social justice warriors! Leave Tiger Woods alone!

Tiger Woods is a professional golfer. He hits a little white ball around a lush green golf course for a living. And he's arguably the best to ever play the game. So why are the social justice warriors of the world suddenly trying to embroil him in some sort of political turmoil? Published August 28, 2018
