Illustrated Edition

The Bookworm Beat 11/19/17 — the illustrated edition

There’s something for everyone (at least everyone with sound common sense, an informed mind, and a good brain) in my latest illustrated edition. I had a post I wanted to write today, but haven’t yet figured out how to do it without violating someone’s privacy. So, while I wrestle with [Read More]


Katha Pollitt writes the feel-good article of the week

I’m not usually a person who revels in Schadenfreude, but I have to say that a primal scream from Katha Pollitt against Trump-land is incredibly gratifying. Katha Pollitt didn’t set out to write a feel-good article. In fact, she feels terrible — but it’s the reasons behind her feelings that [Read More]

Angel of Grief Weeping Angel Illustrated Edition

The Bookworm Beat 11/5/2017 — the illustrated edition and open thread

Even on sad days, the illustrated edition proves that the Left never slows down in its headlong rush into deep (but occasionally laughable) insanity. Before showing you the illustrations for this illustrated edition, I want to say that my thoughts and prayers are with the Texas shooting victims, their family, [Read More]

Frederica Wilson

The Bookworm Beat 10/23/17 — the Frederica Wilson illustrated edition

Here’s a Frederica Wilson collection of illustrated commentary, along with a bunch of other wise and wonderful posters for the discerning conservative. The rest of these Frederica Wilson posters poke fun at her looks. I don’t usually poke fun at people’s looks, because it’s something over which they have limited [Read More]

Bookworm Beat

The Bookworm Beat 9/15/17 — the illustrated edition and open thread

This Bookworm Beat doesn’t have a huge collection of illustrations but what it has are damn fine. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll laugh some more. I’ve been paying bills and taxes, and plowing through Hillary’s What Happened? — and I’m really not sure which task is most distasteful. All I [Read More]

Illustrated edition

The Bookworm Beat 8/28/17 — the illustrated edition and open thread

Between Antifa riots, Act II of the Civil War (the famous Battle Against The Statues), and the Arpaio pardon, there’s a lot of good material here. And last but most certainly not least, if you haven’t seen Dave Chappelle’s famous “black white supremacist” skit, you must watch it. High level [Read More]

Illustrated edition Melania and Michelle

The Bookworm Beat 5/23/17 — the illustrated edition and open thread

It’s another superb illustrated edition, with thought-provoking posters about politics, social issues, and foreign policy. You won’t want to miss it. This is first and foremost an illustrated edition post except . . . before you even look at these posters, please read Victor Davis Hanson’s “Regime Change by Any Other [Read More]


Bookworm Beat 2-7-17 — “Still crazy after all these days” political posters

The great thing about the Leftists’ continuing mental breakdown well into the third week of President Trump’s administration is that they contribute endless material to great political posters. Looking at these posters, no wonder I’m viewing every day of the Trump presidency as better than any birthday. He’s imperfect, of [Read More]


Bookworm Beat 12/24/16 — a Christmas round-up of posters on current issues

To begin with, you see above these words a reminder that, because patriots of old were willing to spend an unusually cold Christmas day in 1776 crossing an ice-filled river, hiking on freezing country roads, and fighting, all while ill-clothed and ill-shod, America got the best Christmas gift of all: [Read More]
