Well, the reporter had to have it explained to him: So, it should come as little surprise that he felt the need to explain it to you.The latest Census Bureau report shows median prices for new residences sold in December fell 1.5 percent from the previous month to $221,800. Half of the homes sold for more than the median, the rest for less.Well, duh.

Uninformed or a liar?: I watched "Fox News Watch" last night. The program is the Fox News Channel's media watchdog program and is unfortunately only 30 minutes long. If it were longer, I'd probably have even more ammunition proving media critic Neal Gabler, an Eric Alterman acolyte, to be at the very least hopelessly misinformed and at worse a liar.On yesterday's show, Gabler claimed that there

Money for terrorists: There should be no doubt that the Palestinian Authority is a corrupt terrorist organization. It was when Yasser Arafat (condition stable after dying in a Paris hospital) was running things. It was when his Fatah party continued holding power after his death. And it will continue to be now that Hamas -- an organization that has as its primary goal the complete destruction of

Crazy old lady in the attic: Helen Thomas, a left-wing opinion columnist, didn't get called on again in yesterday's press conference.Turns out Bush made a good call, because the moonbat was going to ask a dumb question.

The gift that just keeps on giving: Massachusetts' junior senator, John Kerry, has come out urging a filibuster of Judge Samuel Alito.It's going to be interesting to see how the New York Times editorial page characterizes Kerry's move, since by their definition a filibuster is occuring right now.And if the Times changes their definition to fit the political calculus of the moment, I'll be firing

"Debating" Alito: The Senate isn't really debating the qualifications of Sam Alito to sit on the Supreme Court so much as they are speechifying. I watched a couple hours of the Senate yesterday and have C-SPAN2 on now and I think everything that can be said about Alito has been said -- it's just that everyone hasn't yet had a chance to say it.Sen. Hillary Clinton's speech yesterday was

Editorial writers in need of a clue: The New York Times editorial page is urging a filibuster of Judge Samuel Alito. Of course, since by the the Times' own definition only one vote is needed against cloture for a filibuster to occur, they'll likely get it.Frankly, the Times' histrionics on this issue just goes to show you how truly out of touch they are with "mainstream" America. And by "

This is why O'Reilly drives me mad: The loudmouth doesn't do his homework: "[Justice Ruth Bader] Ginsburg was unanimously confirmed, I mean it was 98 to nothing."No, it wasn't. It was 96-3.

Turley's failure to practice full-disclosure confirmed: Earlier this month I posed a question about whether or not Georgetown Law School professor Jonathan Turley was practicing full-disclosure in his television appearances attacking the NSA surveillance program.When the New York Times broke the NSA surveillance story, Turley went on some Fox News program -- I don't remember which one -- and

You gotta be kidding me: ABC News's chief investigative correspondent, Brian Ross, has broken an incredible story about an ethics scandal rocking the Supreme Court. (via Volokh)At the historic swearing-in of John Roberts as the 17th chief justice of the United States last September, every member of the Supreme Court, except Antonin Scalia, was in attendance. ABC News has learned that Scalia

A mirror for the lady: California's "moderate" senator, Dianne Feinstein, had this to say today on the 10-8 party-line vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee on future Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito.Sen. Dianne Feinstein (news, bio, voting record), D-Calif., said things are different from when the Senate considered Breyer and Ginsburg, who were confirmed 87-9 and 96-3 respectively. "There was

Is Miramax trying to bury a pro-soldier movie?: I saw "The Great Raid" when it was in theaters. Though it wasn't the greatest WWII movie of the past decade, it was a solid film that cast American soldiers in a positive light. The film was shot in 2002, but sat on a shelf until last year. There was a lot of grumbling that with the Iraq War going on that Hollywood liberals weren't particularly

End of the Spear: I just got back from watching "End of the Spear" in the theater. It's an excellent, moving film. Frankly, I'm even more befuddled now, after having seen the movie, than I was before at the complaints of some reviewers that the film is prosletyzing, preachy and in-your-face religious. Frankly, I can't imagine making a movie about missionaries that has less preachiness to it. It

A number: Three Republicans voted against Ruth Bader Ginsburg for the Supreme Court. Nine Republicans voted against Stephen Breyer for the Supreme Court. Twenty-two Democrats (50 percent of Dems in the Senate) voted against Chief Justice John Roberts for the Supreme Court. Between 30 and 40-some Democrats will likely vote against Justice Sam Alito.On Fox News, former Democrat Sen. Dennis

Surprised?: The San Diego Union-Tribune editorial page has been tacking in a more center right direction for the past couple of years, but not so far that they don't support a qualified candidate for the Supreme Court. Today's editorial on the Democrats and their Sen. Chuck "Credit Report" Schumer-led ideological litmus tests for judges includes some interesting bits from California's "moderate"

USA vs. Canada: I went to the game this evening between the U.S. and Canada men's soccer teams. The game ended in a 0-0 tie. The biggest news of the night was soccer phenom Freddy Adu's first appearance on the men's national team, making him the youngest man to ever play for the team. Though he only played for a few minutes, he didn't do much in that time -- as evidenced by the scoreless tie.I

Paul Begala vs. Deborah Howell: Paul Begala is a former Clinton hatchet-man. Deborah Howell is the Washington Post's ombudsman. I pit them against each other because something that Begala said this morning on "Meet the Press" conflicts with something Howell wrote in today's Post.First, Begala on the Abramoff scandal:Mr. Abramoff is a movement, partisan Republican. There's no evidence in all of

Understandable mistake: San Diego State's basketball team has been so bad for so long that last night marked the first time in its history that they managed to defeat BYU three times in a row. SDSU swept BYU last season and in their first meeting of this season, and just a few minutes into the game the outcome of this one was never really in doubt.So, it was understandable, really, when

End of the Spear: I plan on seeing "End of the Spear" Monday night, but decided to check out some of the reviews for it over at RottenTomatoes.com, a review aggregator. Needless to say, that hostility toward Christian and religious content isn't limited to Hollywood studios, but also appears to run rampant among movie critics. "End of the Spear" has an average rank of 5.5/10 and the box office

Please, please, please: More and more Democrat senators are coming out against Judge Samuel Alito for the Supreme Court. Their reasons are myriad, shallow and downright silly. The Wall Street Journal is keeping a running tally of the Democrats here. Thus far only Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska has said he will support Alito.Here's hoping that fewer than five Democrats (and Vermont's Jim Jeffords, an

Payola: I saw last week that Scripps Howard News Service had sacked Michael Fumento after he failed to disclose that Monsanto had spent $60,000 to help fund a book that he wrote back in 1999. Fumento finally responded to his firing Thursday, and I must confess that I'm underwhelmed by the entire scandal.Before I go any further, I believe Fumento should've disclosed in his article that Monsanto

Yes, but: John Hinderaker over at Powerline notes that when the New York Times is leaked a document by someone antagonistic towards Democrats, that they suddenly find their ethics policy and describe the whistleblower leaker and his/her motivations.A copy of the report was obtained by The New York Times from someone sympathetic to the Barrett investigation who wanted his criticism of the Clinton
