Commence Act 3 of the GOP’s Planned Parenthood Failure Theater

Commence Act 3 of the GOP's Planned Parenthood Failure Theater

Imagine our surprise. The standalone bill that Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58% promised as a sop to the dumb pro-lifers failed, exactly like everyone knew it would, ...

Coming to a market near you: increased food costs, thanks to California bureaucrats

My native California is suffering the single worst recorded drought in the state’s history. Today, the drought crisis is so severe the some municipal governments are facing the prospect of no water at all. Literally none. Now, it might be easy and maybe even a little emotionally satisfying for you to disregard this as the Golden State’s singular problem. Don’t. Most of the vegetables, fruits | Read More »

Feckless Liberals Discover a Use for Amy Schumer

Even as a fairly voracious consumer of stand up comedy, I have never been a huge fan of Amy Schumer’s schtick. It’s not that I find Schumer offensive; offensive comedy done well (see, e.g., Anthony Jeselnik) can be quite entertaining and willfully suspending your sense of outrage is a prerequisite to enjoying almost any stand up comedian. I just don’t think she’s very funny, when | Read More »

Ted Cruz Has Earned a Second Look From Us All

I like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% a lot as a Senator, but I have never been a huge fan of his candidacy for President – at least until now. Generally speaking, I prefer governors to Senators, and I have an especial wariness for first term Senators. Additionally, I have questions about Cruz’s ability as a coalition builder and I know that | Read More »

Government Slowly Kills the Private Sector – And Blames the Victim for Its Sputtering Demise

One of the advantages Big Government advocates have in their efforts to end the private sector – is the size of the victim. A $17-trillion-a-year economy is so huge – it almost always takes a lot of time to dismantle. It’s like taking down those giant oliphants in the “Lord of the Rings.” Our economy can take a LOT of government arrows – and continue | Read More »

The Curtain Rises Today on Act 2 of the Planned Parenthood GOP Failure Theater

Now you’re looking for the secret, but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking.  You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. By now the way the GOP does pretty much everything in the Senate has become as formulaic and predictable as a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. In Act 1, some Republican Senator – usually | Read More »

A Good Thing Messed Up By Pollsters

I support having the top ten Republicans on the main debate stage. I think if you put all of them on the stage — the 16 to 2000 declared candidates — you learn nothing and accomplish nothing. Fox News (one of my employers) and the RNC deciding to use a polling average and put the top ten in the main event is not a bad | Read More »

Even In Politics Not Everything Is Political

I have seen a number of Republicans and even some Christian evangelicals in the past seventy-two hours make the case that the Republican Party should avoid a government shutdown to stop Planned Parenthood. In fact, a few have said the fight against Planned Parenthood is just another ideological fight and government does so much more and depriving Planned Parenthood of any money will not stop | Read More »

How to Stop Planned Parenthood

The U.S. Senate will vote today on a bill to defund Planned Parenthood and to stop forcing taxpayers to fund abortions and the barbaric sale of baby organs. Unfortunately, this bill won’t be signed into law. Even if enough Democrats support it to overcome a filibuster, President Obama will veto it. That is why the new Republican Congress must refuse to fund Planned Parenthood this | Read More »
