Porn Industry Wants 5 Billion Dollar Bailout

Good News: No Al Gore in Obama Administration

“Former Vice President Gore does not intend to seek or accept any formal position in government,” Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider said. “He feels very strong right now that the best thing for him to do is to build support for the bold changes that we have to make to solve the climate crisis.” Finally, some good news. Al Gore will not be the Climate Czar for the Obama administration. Let me be the first to say Thank Goodness.

Happy Birthday to Michelle Malkin

I just wanted to take a quick second and say Happy Birthday to Michelle Malkin. As many of you who read The College Politico regularly know Michelle Malkin is a major source of news and perspective for me.

Plus Michelle is doing almost exactly what I hope to do in my career, producing insightful, vivid, and clever commentary that cuts to the heart of

What is wrong with Christopher Buckley?

First the absolutely idiotic endorsement of Obama… because Buckley thinks Obama will suddenly and basically without reason turn to conservatism. Then he has the balls to take it one step further and complain that the resignation he offered to the National Review was accepted. What a jackass (seemingly in more than one way these days)… Here’s some advice Christopher don’t offer to resign if you don’t want to resign. (Photo courtesy of Steve Giralt)

Don’t they get that image is… well, everything?

Seriously. What was one of Sarah Palin’s aides thinking when they described her two day trip to Arizona in order to prepare for her upcoming showdown with Joe Biden as “Debate Camp”.

When you have a candidate whose biggest criticisms are that they are too young and inexperienced how can you refer to them in such an informal way when talking to the media? If you want to refute those

Congress finally gets oil drilling right, by doing nothing.

It took forever but Congress has finally caved and will not stop new drilling for off-shore oil. Good news I’d say. But, of course, as anybody who knows anything about government can tell you, there is still a mile of red tape to get through before anybody can actually go and actually drill for oil offshore. The biggest problem is in getting congress to pass a revenue sharing bill which cuts the states in on the money that drilling will enevitably bring in. Until then its doubtfull that the states will allow any drilling… But I’m hopeful. After all this
