NANCY PELOSI: CAFETERIA CATHOLIC EXTRAORDINAIRE

There’s a lot about Nancy Pelosi I don’t get.  First, I have no idea how this woman got to be where she is today.  It’s frightening to me that she’s actually second in line to the Presidency (after Joe Biden).  If the Republicans win back the House in November, I’ll be absolutely thrilled that she’ll […]

FOR WHOM SHALL WE MOURN?

I’D LIKE TO THANK BERNARD GOLDBERG FOR PUBLISHING THIS ARTICLE ON HIS WEBSITE.   I WAS THRILLED WHEN I LEARNED IT HAD BEEN PUBLISHED AS I’M A HUGE FAN OF HIS.  IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN THOUGHTFUL COMMENTARY, CHECK HIS WEBSITE AT www.bernardgoldberg.com.  June 23, 2010 If you can, think back to a year ago this week.  […]

MY MAIDEN AUNT WAS A LESBIAN?

Elena Kagan, Solicitor General and former Dean of Harvard Law School, has been nominated by President Obama to fill the seat on the U.S. Supreme Court previously occupied by […]

FOOLS ARE LIKE OTHER FOLKS AS LONG AS THEY’RE SILENT

Helen Thomas is on my list “Why Do They Have a Job?”  Now that she doesn’t have a job, perhaps I should take her off my list.  I’ll think about it.  But I have wondered about her for years.  The fact that this woman has had a job all this time was something I didn’t […]

ASK ME IF I CARE

June 1, 2010 First, let me welcome all of you to my new website!  I think the most difficult part of the launch was deciding on which topic to choose first.  There’ve been so many stories in the news lately which have me shaking my head and saying, “I don’t get it,” but I had […]
