Baby, It’s Still Prudish Outside

In recent years, the Leftist Legion of Prudery has targeted “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” as inappropriate for public consumption. Now John Legend and Kelly Clarkson are out with a new version in which the man says, “It’s your body and your choice.” The 1940s Frank Loesser tune, covered by countless artists, thus emerges in 2019

No Embracing Terrorists:
A Tale of Two Presidents

Last month, U.S. special operations forces, with military working dog Conan in tow, took down Islamic State boss Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on a daring raid into Syria. “Death of al-Baghdadi happened in spite of President Trump,” headlined an editorial in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, charging, “President Trump took several graceless victory laps Sunday for a

Dog Day Afternoon

As Islamic State boss Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi learned last month, when a military working dog (MWD) shows up at your compound, you might have a problem. While U.S. Special Forces disposed of al-Baghdadi’s praetorian guard, MWD Conan, a Belgian Malinois, chased down the whimpering ISIS boss in a tunnel, where the terrorist blew himself up

Impeachment in the Movies

The Pelosi-Schiff impeachment inquiry has grown ever more complicated and the perpetrators like it that way. The complexity and mysterious cast of characters give the impression that something nefarious must be going on. Those who remain puzzled might find some clarification in American cinema. The closest movie reference to Donald Trump is Paul Newman as

There’s Something About Barry

The 2016 Netflix film “Barry,” starring Devon Terrell, attempted to dramatize the experience of Barack Obama at Columbia University in the early 1980s, even though Clinton factotum George Stephanopoulos, one year ahead, and Matthew Cooper of Newsweek, a year behind, had no memory of the future president there. On that score, the pair had plenty

Willie and the Candidate Jive

Though never a Billy Dee Williams or Harry Belafonte, former California assembly speaker and San Francisco mayor Willie Brown pioneered the practice of poontronage, and one of the first beneficiaries was Kamala Harris. Brown set her up in lucrative sinecures and backed her 2016 U.S. Senate run by telling Democrats such as former Los Angeles

American Soulless Cowards for China

When Houston Rockets’ general manager Daryl Morey tweeted, “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong,” Communist China called a foul. Down came the tweet and Chinese state television axed two NBA exhibition games. NBA boss Adam Silver promptly announced, “We have great respect for the history and culture of China and hope sports and the

Una Equis: The Democrat Ticket That Might Have Been

Last month, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra sued an automobile dealership for false advertising and shady credit practices. This was something of a comedown for a man who has filed more than 50 lawsuits against the Trump administration. As few may recall, Becerra’s AG post is also a demotion for a man once on Hillary

Abortion Dogma Lives Loudly in Pete Buttigieg

In a recent interview, South Bend, Indiana mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg argued that a proper interpretation of Christianity would “point you in a progressive direction.” The implication, obviously, is non-progressives are bad Christians. But there’s more to it. Buttigieg explained, “there’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about

A Soundtrack for the 2020 Democrats

With their prophecies, accusations and personal dramas, the Democratic Party's presidential contenders made for an entertaining summer. Still, what this party needs is some theme music, and the possibilities are truly endless. "Frontrunner" Joe Biden has trouble determining his location, forgets when, exactly, he was vice president, and tells anybody who will listen he’s “not
