Saturday Night Snore

Susan Estrich It wasn’t even funny. When I heard that “Saturday Night Live” was finally going after President Joe Biden, I was almost relieved. It’s about time, you know. With approval ratings below Trump’s, at least according to some polls, and COVID-19 and inflation both raging, only a liberal press turning itself into pretzels could…

Our bigfoot-prints on social media

Fromma Harrop From the moment many of us leave the womb, images of our infant selves get posted on Facebook and other social media. Once out and about, they become part of our permanent digital footprint, often soon to be joined by photos at every stage of life — crawling, first steps, puppy hugging, first…

Republicans and Democrats are capable of blowing it in November

Otherwise, it would be easy to conclude that nothing has changed. The case involved a…

Battlin’ Biden sends Sleepy Joe to the sidelines

David Shribman March came early this year for President Biden. He came into 2022 like a lion. The danger for him is that he may find himself going out like a lamb. The 46th president started the year more like Fighting Bob than Sleepy Joe. Fighting Bob was Robert La Follette, elected to the Senate…

The great Epstein cover-up, Part 2

Ann Coulter Last week, we reviewed our ruling class’s strange lack of interest in Jeffrey Epstein’s child molestation ring, in which so many of them played a part. The media cover-up is second only to the government cover-up, with prosecutors delivering loss after loss in cases they’ve been forced to bring (by the police and…

Smart progressives should love Elon Musk

Fromma Harrop Nearly everything Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted about Elon Musk was wrong. Scratch the word “nearly.” Everything was wrong. Last month, the senator from Massachusetts tweeted, “Let’s change the rigged tax code so the Person of the Year will actually pay taxes and stop freeloading off everyone else.” Some background: The founder of Tesla…
