WashPost: Only a Biden Landslide Will Avert Violence and Catastrophe!

September 4th, 2020 8:28 AM

Nice little country you got there. Wouldn't wanna see nuthin' happen to it, like violence in the streets and a constitutional crisis. So better give Biden a landslide—capiche? That's the very unsubtle messsage the Washington Post sent readers today by posting a…

Former Obama Official: 'Can Gay Marriage Defeat the Islamic State?'

June 30th, 2015 2:46 PM
In a column at ForeignPolicy.com, a former Obama administration defense official who "served as a counselor to the U.S. defense undersecretary for policy from 2009 to 2011" has asked: "Can Gay Marriage Defeat the Islamic State?" Rosa Brooks, who "is a law professor at Georgetown University," is serious. Her earnestness and deep ignorance are especially troubling, because it's clear that there…

LA Times Columnist's Farewell: 'Bail Out Journalism

April 9th, 2009 3:55 PM
Is this really what it has come to - columnists lobbying the government for a bailout? Rosa Brooks, a Georgetown University law school professor, wrote in her last column for the Los Angeles Times on April 9 that it is time for a government bailout for journalism because our way of society is reliant on that profession for its survival. "If newspapers become mostly infotainment websites - if…

LAT's Brooks: Obama's Point 'Correct' In Saying Our Troops 'Just Air-R

October 19th, 2008 10:53 PM
What's bothering the Los Angeles Times's Rosa Brooks now? She doesn't like how the McCain-Palin ticket has noted that Barack Obama said on the campaign trail that our troops in Afghanistan are "just air-raiding villages and killing civilians."  Yet Brooks declares that Barack Obama was essentially "correct" when he said this. ("Obama's no troop-hater: Lost in the debate about 'air-raiding…

LATimes Brooks Thinks Russia/Georgia War is Funny

August 22nd, 2008 8:39 AM
The L.A. Times' Rosa Brooks has done it again, taken a serious subject and made an uninformed romp of it. One wonders how the old Georgian lady seen in news photos standing wounded among the ruins of her apartment building, or the Georgian Mother running down the street, infant in her arms, trying to escape Russian tanks might feel about the humor with which Brooks brings to bear upon their…

Weekend Captionfest II

March 15th, 2008 4:07 PM
Appearing on the last episode of Tucker on March 14, 2008, Barack Obama fan and LA Times columnist Rosa Brooks grimaces after claiming Obama "probably wasn't listening" in church when Rev. Jeremiah Wright made his controversial statements.

'He Probably Wasn’t Listening in Church

March 15th, 2008 10:32 AM
I've enjoyed Tucker Carlson's show and can't let it pass into history, as it did last night, without a mention here. MSNBC has said that Tucker will remain at the network as an at-large commentator, and I have a feeling that, liberated from show-host concerns, he might become even more uninhibited in the expression of his quirkily conservative/libertarian views.So let's usher Tucker out by…

Partial Birth Waterboarding

November 9th, 2007 8:02 PM
Liberals wouldn't lift a finger to stop the torturing to death of an unborn child. But put a terrorist [or a baby seal, for that matter] in the block and watch them spring into sensitive-soul mode.Rosa Brooks epitomizes the mindset in her current LA Times column, "Torture: the new abortion." Her notion is that among Republicans, the new litmus test for presidential candidates is not opposition…
