A lot of folks are commenting today on how great a guy Les Miles is. Which is totally awesome. We frankly need more great guys like Miles in football just as much as we frankly need less guys like Nick Saban. Miles is funny, eccentric, and has some pretty cool plays. However, Miles had one job this summer: fix the damn offense. Nearly every source … Continue reading Yes, Les Miles Deserved to be Fired
I’m tossing this up from The Washington Post because it’s absolute truth. People need to realize this and stop forcing teacher:student ratios of more than 1:20, because it’s just hurting students. Every now and then someone in education policy (Arne Duncan) or education philanthropy (Bill Gates) or the media (Malcolm Gladwell) will say something about why class size isn’t really very important because a great teacher … Continue reading The Class Sizes Are Too Damn High

Hillary Clinton has no plans to visit the state at all, and has chosen to continue fundraising instead. She is far enough ahead in the polls that she believes she can … Continue reading My Piece on a Trump PR Victory…
Gonna start posting these regularly up here. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Friends is a weekly conservative web show that features me, Bill McMorris of the Washington Free Beacon, Neal Dewing of the Fifth Estate podcast, Jeff Blehar of the Decision Desk HQ, and John Tabin of wherever he’s writing this week. It’s a show where alcohol and politics collide in a beligerant manner. And … Continue reading The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Friends: Says Who? #BATF
I’m actually writing this while in the air. Coming home from the RedState Gathering (which was awesome, by the way), I got to the Denver airport just in time for United Airlines to text me that my flight from Houston to Baton Rouge was cancelled. Apparently, the storms in south Louisiana are still bad enough. So, I was wondering what in the hell I was … Continue reading Well, this sucks…
