Senator Cruz just voted Yea for cloture On the Cloture Motion to Proceed to H.J.Res. 59
ok, this was a question Samsara asked in comments to the frontpage post – at 1pm today the Senate voted for cloture on the CR, and the story says it was unanimous.

16 Reasons Hillary will lose – IF …
Myra’s diary is basically a give up and let’s go home kind of attitude and I think it’s because there’s a ridiculous urge on our side to basically put blinders on and avoid thinking outside of the box. So let me reply point by point to her arguments and show why all of them are basically wrong. 1. Social movements? social movements are bogus. Email, | Read More »

Well, I’ve had an awesome summer. Got the job, got the girl, spent a lot of time outside, including a trip to Texas to see some cousins and went wading near Perdenales Falls but oh my was it HOT.

proud to be a RINO
I just realized that “Republican in Name Only” is actually something a conservative should embrace. Far better to be a RINO than a CINO. (Conservative in name only).

where is the social conservatism at CPAC?
I’ve been following a few people on twitter at CPAC and they haven’t really mentioned social issues yet. Is there anyone covering it for RedState or on Twitter I should follow?
