Barry Soetero (a.k.a. “Obama”) gave a rousing bit of speechifying to EPA employees a couple of days ago, in which he noted that “I want to say thank you to each and every one of you, because the EPA touches on the lives of every single American every single day.” For once, he was telling the truth; he just […]

  • Miss Uncongeniality May 22, 2015
    There it was—the classic Hillary charm. Close to a month had passed since the Democratic frontrunner answered questions from the press.

It had some technical daring, sure—the hallucinatory ballet sequence at its conclusion strained the boundaries […]

    Maryland Governor Larry Hogan says the $150-million-per-mile cost of the proposed Purple light-rail line between Bethesda and New Carrollton is “not acceptable.” The Maryland Department of Transportation thinks that it can reduce the cost by 10 percent, but that probably isn’t enough, considering that Hogan wants it to be “dramatically lower.” Hogan promises to make […]
