    You Will Be Made to Care

    You Will Be Made to Care

    Promoted from the diaries. Here in the diaries at RedState, several years ago, I had an encounter with a reader who penned a diary that he did not care about gay marriage as it would never affect him.

    Regarding Disqus

    I want to update the community on Disqus and our use of it.What you must understand first is that we have a growth plan for RedState over the next few years and we needed to push our redesign forward now, before election traffic, because up until the redesign launch RedState was crashing every day.

    Sherrod Brown?s Attack Ad Hypocrisy & David Brock’s Dog Collar

    “Does a guy who wears dog collars in pictures with Barney Frank really want to make a political issue of other men’s . . .” In Ohio?s Senate race, incumbent nut case Sherrod Brown recently complained on his website about all the outside groups running ads against him. And why not? Brown?s average polling lead on my friend Josh Mandel is roughly within the margin | Read More »

    Chairman of the Associated Press . . . Lewinskies Obama . . . Or Something Like That

    You were expecting objectivity? Here’s the Chairman of the Associated Press introducing Barack Obama to an Associated Press meeting:I get the desire to flatter the President of the United States, but really?

    On Lance Armstrong

    If you haven’t heard yet, Lance Armstrong has given up on fighting the US Anti-Doping Agency. He’s throwing in the towel.I don’t really have a dog in the fight. I’m never cared much for competitive cycling. But it really does seem horrendous and un-American to me that a quasi-government agency, mostly funded by the government, gets to pretend it is not a part of the | Read More »

If you are a competent reporter, I’m not sure how you cannot be embarrassed by the majority of those in your profession right now covering politics.From Mark Halperin, to Jake Tapper, to Chuck Todd, more journalists are actually now admitting just how pliable the media is when it comes to Barack Obama’s | Read More »

    This, This, A Thousand Times This

    Finally, someone has seized upon what I think is THE winning narrative in this election cycle.It used to be that if you worked hard enough you could be successful in America. But in Barack Obama’s America, you have to work hard and give to Barack Obama. It’s all about the team you are on, not the work you do.The website Crony Chronicles has put up | Read More »

    Cayman Islands Based Gawker Media Attacks Mitt Romney for Cayman Island Assets

    This is actually pretty hilarious.Gawker, the site that has spent lots of time also ridiculing Sarah Palin and Trig Palin and pretty much writing every other offensive thing you can think of, is now attacking Mitt Romney for having assets based in the Cayman Islands.The Romney camp is gleefully pointing out that Gawker, you may not know, is based in the Cayman Islands.According to Chris | Read More »
