The Confederate flag battle has at last been won.
It’s finally been relegated to a history museum.
The move is symbolic,
But it belies the logic:
We got rid of the flag, but not the gun.
Samuel Johnson said it 240 years ago: “Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.” Rudolph Giuliani proved it last week at a fundraiser in New York for Wisconsin Gov.

Where was all of this squawking after the invasion of Iraq?
Did he care about the THOUSANDS of dead Americans?

The hits just keep on coming. After a week of pummeling by the Obama campaign over the Romney campaign’s conflicting record about Mitt’s exit from Bain Capital — did his control over the company end when he “retroactively retired” in 1999, before it outsourced thousands of American jobs overseas, as he claims now, or in […]
Sarah Palin is so desperate to convince people not to watch “Game Change,” the HBO movie about her disastrous run as the vice presidential nominee in 2008, that her PAC created a spoof of the movie’s trailer.
