Ding dong the week is dead, the week is dead. All hail Dorothy!

The Only Known Video of Mark Twain

Filmed in 1909 by Thomas Edison using the motion picture camera he invented. It shows Mark Twain at age 73 playing cards with his daughters.

Why Ann Coulter Drives the Left Crazy
Kathy Shaidle makes the valid point that most of what Ann says would hardly be controversial if say PJ O'Rourke or Don Rickles had said it. Yet the left is frothy with hatred of her and has a cottage industry of books ridiculing her. So what's the deal?

Well her biggest offense is being a woman. The left considers all women and minorities its natural clientele. White men are basically written off. So when an attractive and smart conservative woman appears on the scene, the left sees them as a sex traitor and goes apoplectic. It's really about mindshare since the left's worst fear is that they will lead others off the plantation. So of course they have to be destroyed.


Was the 'Racist Tea Party Attack' all a setup?
Well it sure looks that way. The McClatchy article uses as a source a HuffPo article that didn't appear until later. And Rep. Cleaver is now backing away from his story of being spit on. So the whole Pelosi march across the street seems to have been a planned setup with a pre-arranged story planted in the media. However the Tea Partiers didn't follow the script and no attack happened. But that didn't matter since the stories were already written.
