The Artist Known As Victor Davis Hanson

It has been said, and I believe it, that if most people can do something, it should not be considered art. Well in this column by Victor Davis Hanson, witness an artist at work. True art inspires deep thought and appreciation, and this one did it for me.

Is Al Franken's team joking?

To see a picture of a ballot that Team Franken (Democrat) is challenging, check this out from The American Spectator, via the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Does anyone really wonder what the voter's intent was on this ballot, aside from a blind person feeling for ink?

Will there come a day when more than half of the people in the country do away with such obvious bullshit artists, electorally speaking? I'm not sure, but I hope so. Yes, the Democrats are a bad joke. Unfortunately, it seems, most people don't really care, as long as the government promises them something.

The Media Satirizes Itself

It is a sacred tenet of the lunatic left that the "corporate media" is biased against Democrats. Seriously. They believe that. Well, I'm not saying that Jon Friedman of CBS Market Watch belongs in that group, but this article about how Barack Obama can "win over the media" really makes me wonder what he was watching during this last election cycle. Here's a breathtaking taste of media self-parody:

The worst thing Obama can do right off the bat is gain a reputation for complaining about his coverage in the media. He should accept it, much as he did during the campaign against Sen. Hillary Clinton, then versus McCain. Obama took the high road, time and again, and it paid off. The Washington media will appreciate it when he grants interviews and holds press conferences. But Obama will thrive in the spotlight when he shows that he's in charge -- not the pesky reporters.
