Chuck Norris, Conspiracy Theorist

What are the true patriots of the U.S. of A. to do when a bona fide Muslim-sympathizing, Constitution-shredding president signs a mysterious and probably anti-American “executive order” granting sinister “privileges, exemptions and immunities” to the France-based International Police Organization—aka Interpol? Enter Chuck Norris, onetime “Texas Ranger,” martial arts movie star and amateur conspiracy theorist, stage right.

National Review Columnist: Women’s Suffrage Bad for Conservatism, Society

Right, so Kathleen Parker, columnist for the National Review (now officially a Buckley-free zone), didn’t really divulge on Monday’s “Colbert Report” exactly who in the White House wrote her secret e-mails to commend her for declaring Sarah Palin to be unprepared to head to the White House in any capacity.

Buckley Bails on Pup’s Rag

Christopher Buckley has resigned from his father’s magazine, with the help of a stiff boot to the rear, thanks to his recent endorsement of Barack Obama.
