When Rush was away for a couple of weeks on his Honeymoon, I was bitterly disappointed that Mark Steyn did not fill in as guest host, especially since he’s the only guest host that’s ever worth listening to. In fact, it seemed that Steyn had been a little off the radar lately, and I was [...]
Yes, we have now manged to reach the point where blogs – yes blogs – are considered too time consuming and unhip for young adults. A study has found that young people are losing interest in long-form blogging, as their communication habits have become increasingly brief and mobile. Tech analysts say it doesn’t mean that [...]

For some reason this is news. Well seeing as how Chuckles has been reduced to a readership of ten sycophantic ball lickers, a brand re-organization makes sense. I find it highly amusing that the same people that branded LGF a hate site a few years back are now embracing Chuckles, but such is life in [...]
I am proud to announce the formation of a new blog, dedicated to American History up to the time of Reconstruction. It is called Almost Chosen People, and features Don McClarey of the American Catholic, Dale Price of Dyspeptic Mutterings, frequent commenters Mouldfan and G-Veg, and former Political Spectrum co-blogger GipperClone. I will be mainly [...]

I fully admit that this is a relatively petty concern, but it involves a pet peeve of mine. I do most of my blog reading through a blog aggregator, namely Google Reader. For those who don’t know, using Google Reader (and there are many other similar aggregators, such as bloglines) you can read all of [...]
My good friend and former co-blogger mouldfan has started his first solo blogging venture. Mouldy is the most reasonable person I’ve ever met from the other side of the political aisle, and I’m not merely damning with faint praise. I’m glad he’s finally started blogging again. Check it out – but play nice.
The amazing thing is the guy who wrote this: Obama’s considerably to the right of me when it comes to these questions: If it were up to me, the top marginal tax rate would be OVER 100% as it was for a breif period under FDR, and I’d use the money to repair the damage [...]

Christopher Blosser at First Thing’s First Thoughts blog has a comprehensive roundup of all the commentary on Caritas in Veritate.
So much to blog about, so little time. Here are a few links from around the net. -Fr. Z has the must-read post of the day: The Problem with Toning Down the Rhetoric – and Why We Probably Won’t Do It. This part is so on the money I need to paste it here. QUAERUNTUR: [...]
I wanted to alert you all that I will be blogging at First Thing’s First Thoughts blog. My first post is up here. For the most part, I will not be cross-posting between here and First Things, so you’ll have to check it out each and every day, which you really should anyway because it’s [...]
So much good stuff out there, I just have to link to it all. Or just the best of the best. Dale Price absolutely smokes yet another ridiculous America editorial. I really, really hope I never get on Dale’s bad side. A pair from The American Catholic. First, Eric Brown explores the issue of women [...]

Evidently I have angered the gods of google by suggesting that google searches will not solve all the world’s problems, because now it seems that every google related web gizmo is busted. I would do a happy dance about not being on a google blogging platform, but internet karma can be a bitch. Update: It [...]
I’m not one for decrying modern technology. I chuckle at angry old men who wave their fists at new fangled thingslike the interwebs. For example, Tom Knott beclowns himself with a meandering, pointless “sports” column that just sounds like a guy ranting about time passing him by. That being said, I can’t help but think [...]
And I didn’t even vote for myself. Please make your way over to the Crescat for voting. I make no official endorsements, but I do have a few regular thoughts that could have just the right (southern) appeal. After all, as an American Catholic, I’m definitely pro ecclesia, even if that makes me one of [...]

Is there any blogger who does a better job of cutting through the bs and getting right to the heart of the matter than Jeff Goldstein? I’m going to violate certain rules of good blogging etiquette and quote his entire rant. in my experiences dealing with the politically engaged leftist who visits this site (not [...]
I’ve been nominated by the Crescat in the category of “Best Catholic Political Blog that is not the American Papist” for the 2009 Connonball Catholic Awards. Yeah, I don’t know what they were drinking either, but I am appreciative of the shout out.

The crankywife has started her own blog. It’s decidedly unpolitical, so take a look at String, Stitches and Stains. And there’s a picture of the baby there, so you have to click on the link in order to see it.
Over the past few weeks Sydney Carton has been documenting the anti-Catholic bigotry that has been displayed by a few commenters over at the otherwise excellent Hot Air blog. Today, Donald McClarey at The American Catholic posted on this problem, and I will just add my voice to their chorus. I also agree with Donald’s [...]
The problem with most conspiracy theories is that five seconds of consideration will render them implausible. But gee, it was a friend of a reliable friend, so it must be true.
John Derbyshire has gotten together with fellow agnostic/atheistic/secular whatever conservatives to create a new blog. As thoroughly fascinating as this blog will no doubt prove to be, I don’t think quoting Thomas Jefferson is really a way to convince other conservatives that you’re onto anything particularly insightful about conservatism.
