On a much more somber note: as of this morning, the death toll from Hurricane Ian has risen to at least […]

BY ALEXANDER BOLTON | THE HILL For Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), killing Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-W.Va.) permitting reform bill was personal. McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, looked like he’d been hoodwinked when Manchin announced a deal with Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on the Inflation Reduction Act.

Editor’s Note: There is a quote from the novel “A Time to Kill” from the lead character Jake Brigance, who happens to be an attorney, when he states that the death penalty is not used enough…. that the crime plus the criminal should be ruled together. This is one of those times. The father who was shot dead by a stray […]

Original Post  “You’re a homophobe, now buy my product” is not the best sales pitch in the world, but when you’ve got nothing else you go with it because when you’re as dumb as a hammer, everything is a nail. That’s a confusing and convoluted opening sentence, but I wrote it on purpose to illustrate a point – leftists hate […]

Erick-Woods Erickson So, to start, can I just say the reactions to me tweeting about this story are a bit nuts. I don’t think I’m supposed to carry water for anyone. But people on the right are infuriated that I’m not standing by their man. People on the left are infuriated that I am not throwing Walker under the bus. […]

Good morning, it’s Wednesday, October 4, 2017, a date celebrated by Colorado-trained newspaper men and women of a certain age — such as myself — with a tip of the fedora, a swig of Coors at the stroke of noon, and nostalgic and stilted tough-guy lingo. On this day in 1880, the great Damon Runyon was born. His hometown was […]
