In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

Netanyahu Heckled From the House Gallery

Wait a second. I thought Michelle was in London. Very cool customer. Could he be having a more successful trip, at least PR wise? Forget the article I wrote for POLITICO today about Jeb Bush being the best GOP candidate. Any chance someone could put together a birth certificate saying Netanyahu was born in New Hampshire?

Obama Quaffs a Pint of Guinnesss

I used to bartend in an Irish bar. Guinness is an acquired taste, and I think he’s only had it once or twice before. I doubt he likes it one single bit. And I’m not sure if I ever served an American woman a pint of Guinness, so she definitely doesn’t like it. I mean, look at that face.

President Obama: Meet this Sweet Old Woman

Not saying this represents mainstream Palestinian opinion. But I do remember the celebrations on the West Bank after 9/11. And I do think it’s the leading edge of what Israel has to deal with. Thanks to one of our readers, Shofar, for providing this.

Give Me Five Gallons of Obama Regular

Are you full up with Obama? Would you like to fill up with Obama? Looks like the owners of this gas station in South Carolina have opted out of the usual price war with their neighboring competition and decided instead to gain market advantage by branding their outfit with the president of the United States. Boy, and the guys next door probably thought they’d performed

Bob Gates Signs Up for Gutsy Call

Et tu, Gates? Appearing last night on 60 Minutes, which is becoming the go-to forum for the Obama propaganda machine, Defense Secretary Robert Gates joined the legions of on-message Obamaites shouting that the president had made a “gutsy call” by deciding to kill America’s Public Enemy #1. I like that he seems barely able to say the words, like they’d been planted in soil that

The Call of the Gutsy

Granny Jan has the goods on the supposed non-politicization by the White House of the Bin Laden kill. As this video makes abundantly clear, the national security staff was co-opted into political work. They and other Democrats were given talking points, and marching orders. Politicizing national security and this moment of national triumph and healing. Gutsy call, David Plouffe! Here’s the evidence: Granny Jan blogs

Condi Rice Manhandles Lawrence O’Donnell

Thought you might like this video Condoleezza Rice taking on MSNBC’s new Senior Obnoxious Host Lawrence O’Donnell. She gives a spirited defense of George W. Bush’s Iraq policy. Compelling viewing. Thanks to one of our readers, Granny Jan, for noticing this. She blogs at Granny Jan and Jihad Kitty. And to Brietbart TV, where she found it. Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and

Oy! Not That One, This One!

A parody of Obama’s campaign video has about THREE TIMES as many views on YouTube as the actual video itself. As Ben Smith notes over at POLITICO, this may be sign the political energy is circa 2010, not 2008. As of this writing, the parody has some 869,000 views, while the campaign video has about 287,000. To be fair, the parody was released Friday. But
