Goode

Goode Ol’ Boy’s Take on the Quran

God forbid that the first Muslim congressman, Keith Ellison, should be allowed to put his hand on a Quran when he’s sworn in without the likes of Virginia’s Rep.

Hitler and Rummy

Conservative Radio Host Wants Dissenters Detained

Conservative radio personality Mike Gallagher appeared on Fox News on Tuesday to vent his anger at “The View” host Joy Behar for comparing Donald Rumsfeld to Hitler.

Dick Morris: ‘First Black Is Better Than First Woman’

Clinton strategist turned Fox News provocateur Dick Morris brought his peculiar insight to bear on the Hillary Clinton/Barack Obama showdown, claiming: “Obama is in fact a better first than she is. First black is better than first woman in our politics in terms of valuing it.” What reasoning Morris used to make that determination remains a mystery, as he quickly moved on to the multitude of reasons why he feels Obama can’t win, and how he’ll leave the country if either one does.
