Georgia Congressman Claims He Didn’t Know Much About Planned Parenthood Before Voting to Give Them Money

The vote was to implicitly allow Planned Parenthood to fund abortions. As Congressman Deal explained Monday night: Politicians who vote to give your money to abortion providers can spin it anyway they like, but taxpayer dollars for one service frees up money | Read More »
Did the Federal Government Cause the BP Oil Spill?
Step back for a minute. It is a “known fact” that BP’s actions and handling of the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon caused the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

SB. 1070′s Stay Of Execution
I know there is a great deal of anger and frustration out there… amongst the 70% of you who are racists that believe immigration laws should be enforced… about Federal Judge Susan Bolton’s willingness to be bought by Obama and the Holder DoJ, but all I can do is laugh…and I mean gut-wrenching, jiggly mid-section guffaw. Seriously…relax people, get some popcorn and consider the pretzel | Read More »

Right Online Post-Game
It was Vegas, baby. Right Online 2010 was a spectacular event. While the nutrooters frittered away their time listening to Van Jones preach green socialism, or on the casino floor playing African-American-jack and Poker(orim), we denizens of the online right were listening to serious policy discussion, getting tips on building our social networks, and pouring ice all over audio equipment for fun and profit. There | Read More »
Some interesting details from last night’s primary: Rep. Mary Fallin won her gubernatorial primary and is well on track to flip the governorship from Democrat to Republican this fall. The voters apparently decided to forgive her for TARP; it doesn’t look like they’re quite ready to forgive Lt. Governor Jari Askins for being a Democrat. It’s that kind of year. Rep. Dan Boren (D-no-seriously, OK-02) | Read More »

Judd Gregg, Kent Conrad Push Massive Tax Increases in Lame Duck Session
Cross-posted from Liberty Central. Obviously, balancing the federal budget is a worthy goal – an extremely important one, in fact. Congress has massively increased spending, to the point that the United States is projected to run inordinately high deficits for years to come. The problem is one of historic proportions. It would be a welcome change if this Congress were to consider a package of | Read More »
Dudley’s lead confirmed
From Unlikely Voter: We’re now at three polls in a row, counting the new Rasmussen, that show Chris Dudley ahead of John Kitzhaber in Oregon. Even without a third party candidate mucking up the poll, the Democrat just can’t pull ahead.

Ezra Klein of the Washington Post Urges Democrat’s Engage in “Power Grab”
Yesterday, in the Washington Post, Ezra Klein argued for Democrat Senators to use their power to abolish the filibuster. Ironically, Ezra Klein in 2005 argued that the same tactic when used by Republicans was a “power grab” and an abuse of power. Place Klein’s Washington Post column of 2010 next to the Klein column of 2005 and one might conclude that Klein is a partisan hack. | Read More »

Being a liberal means never having to say you’re sorry [Updated with a note from Ezra]
Back in 2005, when the GOP kept getting frustrated by Democrat filibusters, the GOP came up with what they called the “constitutional option” to end the filibuster. Democrats and the media referred to it as the “nuclear option.” Well, fast forward to today and lefty Ezra Klein is all in favor of the constitutional option.*
