Kaufman may seem himself credentialed, as a film journalist and critic, to make ignorant projections at black conservatives or to claim scandal or incomplete fact when the facts are there. However, to quote another black conservative, Thomas Sowell, “credentialed ignorance is still ignorance”.

It is very rare to find someone who has defied the normal outcomes of political life by taking on corruption, making transparency a cornerstone of his or her agenda, and calling out the crony capitalism and crony corporatism that is so pervasive in today’s politics by actually fighting all of these ills from the inside.

This time, Clarke’s target is this exchange between Gov. Palin and Sean Hannity (quoted from his post): Hannity: The price of oil is going up [...]

In a Compass piece last Sunday in the Anchorage Daily News, Larry Wood breathlessly declared that AGIA is dead. In fact, he thinks any pipeline to the Lower 48 is dead. Apparently no one told the Denali pipeline team. Poor BP and ConocoPhillips haven’t figured out that a pipeline to the Lower 48 is a [...]

Yesterday, our prayers went out to Dan Fagan as his father struggles with cancer. Today, the gloves come off again. Fagan has a new screed at the Alaska Standard which really should be included in any case study of Palin Derangement Syndrome (PDS). A clear symptom of PDS is the tendency to ascribe base political [...]
