It can be discouraging to look around at who's running the show these days and wonder "Where have all the grown-ups gone?"

Take heart. There are still some people who are not drinking the Kool-aid. Here's where to find them. I would suggest going gown this list every day and printing off the most recent articles you haven't read to read over lunch.

Michelle Malkin
Michelle Malkin is a feisty conservative bastion. You loved her book "Unhinged" and you can read her columns here.
Ann Coulter

Ann posts her new column every Thursday, or you can browse her past columns.
George Will
What can you say? It's George Will. Read it.
Charles Krauthammer posts every Friday. Just a good, smart conservative columnist.
If you want someone who gets it just as right, but is easier to read, try Thomas Sowell, who just posts at random times.
Jonah Goldbert seldom disappoints.
David Limbaugh carries on the family tradition.

Jewish World Review has all these guys plus lots more good stuff.

Or you can go to radio show sites like
 Laura Ingraham's or Glenn Beck's or Rush Limbaugh's..

If you'd like you can study The Constitution while you wait.

Then there's always TownHall.com, NewsMax.com, The Drudge Report, FreeRepublic.com, World Net Daily, (which Medved calls World Nut Daily), News Busters, or National Review Online.

For the Lighter Appetite

If you have to read the news, I recommend The Nose on Your Face, news so fake you'd swear it came from the Mainstream Media. HT to Sid for the link.
Or there's always The Onion. (For the benefit of you Obama Supporters, it's a spoof.)

Dave Barry's Column
Daryl Cagle's Index of Political Cartoons
About half of these cartoonists are liberal (Latin for wrong) but the art is usually good. (Fantastic, if you're used to the quality of art on this site.)

Or just follow the links above and to the right of this section (you can't have read all my archived articles already). If you have read all my articles (you need to get out more) go to my I'm Not Falling For It section.

Above all, try to stay calm. Eventually I may post something again.

You probably already have, but just in case you haven't, check out Jordan's Eagle Project.

Grown ups
Today is Veteran's Day. This is the day we honor those who have served to protect our freedoms. If you're a veteran consider yourself honored. As a friend sometimes says, "Job well done."

But you didn't come here to hear me extol, praise and applaud. You came here to hear me bash. I will try not to disappoint.

I think I was eight years old. I wrote a letter to Santa Claus. I said that I knew that I didn't deserve it, but I'd like this and this. Then I made sure to show it to my parents. "Here's the letter I'm going to send, just thought I'd run it by you first . . . for no particular reason. Anything I can clear up for you?"

Dang I was clever. So smart. Parents never suspected a thing. Love that modesty thing, stroke of brilliance for an eight year old.

As I look back on that moment I wonder if maybe my parents understood what was going on a little better than that eight year old thought.

Oh, speaking of idiotic juveniles who have no clue what grown up minds understand, Barack Obama is playing budget. Isn't that cute? Little Barack with his little toy money and little banker's hat. Aw, isn't it darling?

He figures we're too stupid to see through his sophomoric tricks. "You want budget cuts? Okay, we'll cut defense. And not just defense waste, critical areas. Huh? Huh? You really want budget cuts? Oh, yeah, and while we're at it, we're going to remove the home mortgage deduction. Oh, geez, I'm brilliant. What a strategist."

What a putz

This is the political equivalent of holding your breath until you get your way.

Fortunately, it's like Oliver North said today: "Obama is incapable of shaping events."

After being chastened by the voters in one of the greatest electoral reversals in American history, the president flew away on the most expensive foreign junket ever taken by an American head of state. But his appearances this week in India, Indonesia and South Korea have made it vividly clear to all that Obama is incapable of shaping events.
(emphasis added)
Victor Davis Hanson wrote about this, calling it The politics of budget cutting.

Even though "politics" is intended as an insult, calling Obama's hissy fit that gives it more credence than it deserves.

2012 cannot come soon enough.

Historic Moments
"Generations from now," (insert dramatic echo) "We will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we . . . "

. . . kicked their sorry carcasses out!

Hey, Obama, you tinhorn dictator, what was that you were saying about punishing your enemies?

Good days
As Rodney Carrington says, I think I'm sharing way too much with you people . . .

I can't decide if I picked a really good or a really bad day to quit swearing. You ever have one of those days? The great line is "I couldn't decide whether to open my eyes or my wrists this morning," but that's never a problem for me. I always opt for homicide over suicide. How stupid is the other option? Someone else is causing a problem so you off yourself? Oh, hell no. I'm sticking around long after the problem is solved.

I just woke up with . . . well, actually it was a clarity, I think. I think the delusions that allow me to function in society were momentarily pulled back and I could see the hopelessness of it all.

So I'm giving myself a pep talk on the way to work, and had myself almost convinced that I would make this a good day. I would focus, my communications would be clear and clean. I would take this state of mind and turn it around and not let it rule me. Real Deepak Chopra stuff.

Then 8:01 a.m. found me sitting in the car, two blocks from work, waiting for a train and listening to the news. They were talking about Obama and how he called up Republican leaders to talk about "working together."

'Working together,' in case you didn't know it, is democrat speak for do it my way. But really, what phrase out of a democrat's mouth isn't? Obama still doesn't get it. Obama needs the "Election is over. I won, you lost, okay? You don't get to talk, you lost" speech that he gave John McCain. What a putz. What a miserable low-life sub-human piece of sewage putz.

As I was screaming at the radio--loud, out-of-control, jugular popping, 'insane person here; someone call the authorities' screaming at the radio--the thought popped into my head "I picked a bad day to quit swearing."

But then it occurred to me, really, isn't a day that has a lot of reasons to swear the best day to quit swearing? What reward to you have if you don't swear on the day when you feel good and everything is going right?

I should be thrilled. We confronted evil and whupped it. Well, almost. Harry Reid? Jerry Moonbeam Brown? What the hell is up with that. 'Joe' e-mailed me soliciting some gloating. All I could come up with was that in my stage in life I am either disappointed or preparing to be disappointed.

Then a good friend pointed out that I was feeling sorry for myself, boo-freakin-hoo, so life hasn't paved your path with perfection. Good thing she caught me before I got to the "I've never failed to disappoint everyone I love" stage.

Anyway, I'm not in a good mood yet, but I am bored with this post (which means I lost you paragraphs ago).
