Last week rightbloggers remained occupied with the recent D.C. scandals, which some of them expect to result in the President's impeachment; they even have a March on Washington and a shady poll to give them hope. We expect they will result in some sort of impeachment, if only of certain people's ju ... More >>
After the gruesome murders of children and teachers by Adam Lanza in Newtown, Connecticut, apparently mostly performed with a Bushmaster AR-15 ("the civilian version of the military's M-16 and M-4," says the New York Times, "a logical choice for anyone whose goal is to kill a lot of people in a shor ...

When actor Andy Griffith passed away last week, President Obama gave a brief condolence statement ("A performer of extraordinary talent, Andy was beloved by generations of fans and revered by entertainers who followed in his footsteps"), on which Weasel Zippers commented, "JERK: President Obama Reme ...

Hope you folks had a good Pride week. Rightbloggers didn't, much. For one thing, last week anti-same-sex-marriage heavyweight David Blankenhorn finally gave up the fight. And with more states (and President Obama!) on the SSM bandwagon, rightbloggers' traditional hatred of homosexuals looks like les ... More >>
What a horrible year it's been. There's been something to annoy everyone, and everyone took full advantage: The health care bill, the Tea Party, the BP spill, the Ground Zero Mosque, the Glenn Beck and Jon Stewart rallies, the Republican Comeback, the enhanced TSA patdowns, WikiLeaks -- and every bi ...

The reviews are in, and Sex and the City 2 looks like the season's biggest critical bomb. Though the film drew a decent crowd in its opening weekend, it was lambasted by critics both highbrow ("almost avant-garde adventure in aimlessness" -- Wall Street Journal) and low ("Sucks in the city" -- New ...

In the latest round of health care town hall protests, rightbloggers.... Hold on a second. Isn't this August? Though we are new to this journalism racket, it's our understanding that August is the height of the "silly season" -- that is, per Wikipedia, the time of year "typified by the emergence ... More >>
The independent autopsy is over, and Dr. Michael Baden has determined that Kung Fu actor David Carradine's death was not a suicide after all. (That was the original conclusion by Thai authorities when they found him all trussed up last week; later came the auto-erotic asphyxia scenario.) The next st ... More >>
Hmm. The presumption was suicide, but now it is being suggested that David Carradine's death might be homicide, or just a good time gone wrong. Police in Bangkok say the now-famous curtain cords were tied around Carradine's neck and genitals, suggesting auto-erotic asphyxia. A Thai forensics specia ... More >>
Obama's nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court has stirred some interesting debate, but we who follow rightbloggers will forever remember it for the reaction of National Review's immigration expert, Mark Krikorian. It's as distinctive as Roman Hruska's defense of G. Harrold Carsw ... More >>
The Vermont legislature approved same-sex marriage. The Governor vetoed it. Now the legislature has overridden his veto, making Vermont America's first legislatively-decided gay state. Hurrah! Iowa made us feel inadequate with its unanimous Supreme Court gayness, but Vermont has struck back for coas ... More >>
