Obama’s Syria policy is officially eating its own tail

Things are happening so quickly in northern Syria that it’s been difficult to keep up–and, in fact, I feel compelled to say that I’m writing this late Monday night, so that, if none of it makes sense by the time it posts on Tuesday morning, you’ll know why.

Addressing the Legal Services Corporation at its 40th anniversary… Continue reading Oh, Joe Biden, what the hell?

I’m going to try to embed, but if it doesn’t work blame WordPress, not me: Yeah, that didn’t work. Luckily I found the clip on YouTube, albeit at a lower resolution:… Continue reading Joe Biden is righteous
