I see stupid people

In the movie "The Sixth Sense," the 9-year-old boy, Cole Sear, said: "I see dead people."

My gift is I see stupid people.

Murdoch defends NBC's lies

The New York Post is the runt of Sir Rupert Murdoch's media litter. I doubt it makes money for News Corporation but no one else wants it, and closing it would be messy.

The Post editorial board supports Trump, but over the weekend Murdoch evidently big-footed the board and ordered -- likely indirectly -- an editorial slamming the president.

Trump's chief of staff schooled the press last week after a series of nonsense stories about his being frustrated with President Trump.

John Kelly is a retired Marine general. He could be lobbying for some defense contractor or fly-fishing in Idaho right now.

Not only did Hillary greenlight a smear campaign against his accusers, but she mobilized Hollywood to come to his defense.

In so doing she enabled Harvey Weinstein and hundreds of other sexual predators by making it more difficult for victims to speak out.

George Lopez booed -- the swamp is draining

President Trump's attacks on the media, the NFL, and others are not impulsive -- but part of a strategy to reverse 60 years of cultural deterioration.

In draining the swamp, the president has to cut off its main tributary: the media.

Cowboys ratings down 23%

America's team is now America's apologists, and fans are walking away.

Or changing channels.

Make Congress's prescriptions public record

In his last run for the Senate, Robert Byrd could no longer control his arms. They flapped like wings. His staff called it benign tremors. He died mid-term,

Inquiries about his health went nowhere.
