my foam flecked frenzy over fictional facts
Is the best defense always a good offense? Eric Boehlert (a Salon editor who now writes for Media Matters) is getting a lot of attention in the blogosphere right now because of the ferocity of his defense of the MSM's...Comment Posted By Classical Values On 22.12.2006 @ 10:36
Republican perverts menacing the nation's youth?
I'm a bit confused by the huge fuss over the Foley scandal, because while what he did (sexually suggestive flirting with a page) was inappropriate, this jerk was caught and he resigned. While Foley's conduct was a reprehensible breach of...Comment Posted By Classical Values On 1.10.2006 @ 22:09
All eliminationist rhetoric is not equal
I'd like to examine what I consider to be a textbook example of genuine eliminationist rhetoric. (As opposed to the highly questionable variety discussed by Rick Moran.) I found the above picture at post by Tammy Bruce titled "Hezbollah Among...Comment Posted By Classical Values On 26.07.2006 @ 09:47
Coulter war against conservative values?
Via Pajamas Media, James Joyner has what I guess should be called an Ann Coulter roundup, and Ann doesn't seem to have too many friends in the right-of-center blogosphere. Whether it's just her shtick or a form of trolling, conservatives...Comment Posted By Classical Values On 7.06.2006 @ 22:25

Partisan political war?
Unless I am reading him wrong, Professor Bainbridge seems to think that success in the Iraq war should be measured by whether it benefits partisan (in this case conservative) politics:The conservative agenda has advanced hardly at all since the Iraq...Comment Posted By Classical Values On 22.08.2005 @ 22:37
Carnival 149 (and the politics of poetry)
The 149th Carnival of the Vanities has been posted at Pratie Place. Host Melinama does an admirable job with innumerable posts, many of which are political in nature -- this despite the fact that she doesn't like political blogging: I...Comment Posted By Classical Values On 27.07.2005 @ 11:15
Itsa, Itsa .... Bonfire!
ItsaPundit is home to this week's not-to-be-missed 103rd Bonfire of the Vanities. Host "Puppy Blender" (where have I heard that?) begins with a disclaimer: No actual puppies or hobo's were hurt during this, but, it can cause carpet tracks and...Comment Posted By Classical Values On 21.06.2005 @ 12:02
