Can Congress stop the Iran deal?
7/14/2015 10:01:10 AM  Ed Morrissey
Now that the P5+1 and Iran have inked a deal that will unleash Tehran from decades of international sanctions, the agreement has to go before the legislatures in Iran and the US. The former is a mere formality; if Supreme Leader Ali Khameini likes the

7/14/2015 8:41:55 AM  Ed Morrissey
“Because of this deal,” Barack Obama said this morning from the White House, “we have stopped the spread of nuclear weapons in this region.” Want to bet? With Iran unleashed economically and militarily, this deal may end up

7/14/2015 8:01:55 AM  Ed Morrissey

Quotes of the day

7/13/2015 9:21:29 PM  Allahpundit
Here’s what occurred to me during the big shootout last night, which, for all its gore, wasn’t half as tense as that long tracking shot last season where Rust Cohle made his getaway from the stash house: This isn’t going to improve.

Video: A return to Bloom County?
7/13/2015 8:41:21 PM  Ed Morrissey
Alas, this may just be temporary, but as creator Berkeley Breathed tweeted out today, it “feels like going home.” A quarter century after the departure of the comic strip Bloom County, Breathed plans to bring readers back to the fanciful

Slate shocked, shocked that ObamaCare didn't fix cost curve
7/13/2015 8:01:03 PM  Ed Morrissey
This is a few days old, but it’s still instructive on how those who have supported ObamaCare will defend it now that premiums have skyrocketed out of sight. Slate headlines the Helaine Olen piece as “ObamaCare’s Bill is Due,” but

"Walking Dead" grumble thread: "Fear the Walking Dead" trailer lookin' surprisingly not too bad
7/13/2015 7:16:01 PM  Allahpundit
To cleanse the palate, an ICYMI from Comic Con this weekend. “Fear the Walking Dead” is AMC’s attempt to franchise TWD, an immense ratings juggernaut. Why give up easy money when “The Walking Dead” is on hiatus when the

Arby's responds to low-level vegetarian outrage with cheeky help line instead of caving
7/13/2015 6:31:05 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
This month, Arby’s introduced a tempting new bacon product to the already generously bacon-infused fast-food market—brown sugar bacon. Arby’s was true to its slogan— “We Have the Meats.” But not everyone is excited that

Webb: Warren-Sanders-Hillary leftist tilt "not my Democratic Party"
7/13/2015 6:01:36 PM  Ed Morrissey
If Jim Webb could be bothered to campaign, he’d make a much more formidable opponent to Hillary Clinton than Bernie Sanders. The Democratic Party has all but abandoned working-class voters in middle America, Webb told Bret Baier yesterday on Fox

New Trump ad: Even my enemies know I'm for real in this race
7/13/2015 4:41:50 PM  Allahpundit
Via Mediaite, a quickie that cost nothing to produce, is destined to end up embedded on thousands of Facebook pages, and proves that Trump knows exactly what his appeal is. Like I said Friday, even if he’s not the most conservative candidate in the

Steel-melting hot take from Rolling Stone: AFL-CIO destroyed Walker … with a press release
7/13/2015 4:01:48 PM  Ed Morrissey
What’s most amusing about this 2600º F take from Rolling Stone over a press release? Answer A: The magazine’s own utter lack of journalistic credibility. Answer B: The greasily obsequious fanboy-ism of Rolling Stone toward Richard Trumka,

Amazon backs Ted Cruz: We've seen no bulk purchases that should keep him off the NYT bestseller list
7/13/2015 3:21:05 PM  Allahpundit
Hard to believe the Times would be so petty in its disdain for Cruz that they’d kick him off the list and then lie about it, especially when, as their spokesman notes, right-wing authors like Glenn Beck and Ann Coulter routinely make the cut. But

Hillary speech: HSBC for we, but not for thee
7/13/2015 1:21:02 PM  Ed Morrissey
After spending most of the year offering little in specifics on any issue, Hillary Clinton gave a major economic policy speech earlier today. She focused on middle-class wages, which have remained stagnant over the last six years of recovery, telling her

All crimes are equal, but some crimes are more equal than others
7/13/2015 12:41:58 PM  Jazz Shaw
I would like to send my thanks to our friend Jim Geraghty at National Review for pointing out something which I’m sure a lot of you have noticed and ruminated upon but really needed to be stated loudly in a public forum. There are definitely

Maybe the GOP needs a No Labels movement
7/13/2015 12:01:01 PM  Ed Morrissey
Republicans have had a number of successes over the last few years, even if the successes have been eclipsed by two national failures in presidential elections. The GOP holds more state-legislature seats now than at any time since Herbert Hoover was

Christie: How many times does the media need me to say Trump's immigration comments were inappropriate?
7/13/2015 11:21:31 AM  Allahpundit
Via RCP, a nice frame for this morning’s data crunch from BuzzFeed: From Monday to Friday of last week, “Trump” was said on the air more than a thousand times combined by CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News, hundreds of times more than
