Not newsworthy: NY Times’ two FEMALE star columnists ( Maureen Dowd & Gail Collins) take a pass on Jill Abramson’s firing
Well, so much for the sisterhood..It seems that the “war on women” is being choreographed, by, well…women. The biggest story in years about the MSM concerns the kerfluffle at the New York Times about executive editor Jill Abramson’s firing. The “Old Grey Lady” has two star columnists, Gail Collins ( who for a number of years was the editor of the editorial page) and the | Read More »
Bill Clinton is too old to be elected president and hello!!!….. he and Hillary are the same age.
Let’s assume, just for the purposes of this diary.. that Bubba’s political career had somehow paralleled that of California’s governor Moonbeam, Jerry Brown. That is, Clinton did not win the 1992 nomination, and after years of chasing women and trying to make some money, he’d run for governor of Arkansas again ( and yes, yes, I know that Arkansas has absolute term limits – this | Read More »
Resolved: No federal civil service employee should ever again get a bonus. Period.
Quick introductory note: When I pen a diary on Red State, it’s most always about a topic with which I have some knowledge and/or expertise. So let me state up front, and very clearly, that I have ZERO knowledge of the federal civil service system, especially its pay structure. Rather, I’m hoping this will elicit comments from those who can speak accurately on the | Read More »
Erick: What about Delvis Dutton for Georgia’s 12th CD..check out the guy’s ad.
The other day. Erick posted his Georgia picks here: http://www.redstate.com/2014/05/09/my-georgia-picks/ He didn’t recommend people in every race. I know very little about local Georgia politics..but in the 12th CD, to beat Dem John Barrow…who somehow manages to survive again and again, a state senator named Delvis Dutton is running for the GOP nomination. Please check out his ads, they’re 15 second gems….with a great tag | Read More »
OMG!!!Eleanor Clift loses her mind: Chris Stevens wasn’t murdered, he died of “smoke inhalation.”
Just when you think it couldn’t get any crazier, it does. Eleanor Clift, the shrill harridan apologist for the left, on “The McLaughlin Report” today, somehow, I surmise, trying to defend Hillary, opined that Stevens’ death was an unfortunate industrial accident: Next she’ll tell us that the 30o girls in Nigeria weren’t kidnapped by Islamic terrorists..they were actually just out on a school field trip, | Read More »
It’s the Democrats, NOT Republicans, who are about to make the same huge mistake over Benghazi as they did with Clinton’s impeachement
As the Benghazi investigation heats up with the appointment of a Select Committee in the House, Democrats and the MSM are tripping over themselves in hand-wringing displays of concern for the GOP, reminding everyone how previously Republicans supposedly overplayed their hand, regurgitating ad nauseam the factoid that in the 6th year the President’s party ALWAYS loses seats’ excepting of course, in 1996, when the Democrats | Read More »
Has Chris Christie been emasculated by Bridgegate?
A very small group of left wing students and faculty forced Condi Rice to withdraw as commencement speaker at Rutgers. Actually, when the university officials refused to forcefully stand up for academic freedom, Rice chose to gracefully withdraw, rather than create a scene that would detract from the commencement experience for the vast majority of students and their families. Just in case you hadn’t noticed, | Read More »
Lois Lerner’s so called “waiver of her 5th amendment rights” was staged, to delay the investigation
I’m watching the House Rules Committee hearing, as they get ready to vote a contempt citation for Lois Lerner. It’s obvious that Lerner, likely in cahoots with other officials at the IRS and the Obama White House, staged the entire scene in order to grad out, and delay the investigation, while attempting to allow the Democrats to demean, denigrate, and diminish Issa’s investigation. Consider. Lerner | Read More »
It appears David Dewhurst can’t get elected dogcatcher in Texas: He’s about to lose his primary…again!!
Schadenfreude, dept of….. My, my, my..how have the mighty fallen…… David Dewhurst, two years ago was busy looking for a home in Washington DC, expecting to be the next senator from the great state of Texas.. Well, that didn’t turn out too well, now did it? Dewhurst, the consummate RINO, was forced into a run-off, and then lost to Ted Cruz. And, oh yeah..he spent | Read More »
First take: Trey Gowdy will be the 2016 GOP VP nominee
One of the joys of making early-on, (and some might say outlandish) projections; is that if you are correct, you’re a genius – if you’re wrong, no one remembers what you said a long time ago. With that, let’s look into the future. John Boehner, bless his heart, has FINALLY done something right, announcing that he will appoint a Select House Committee. Even better, though | Read More »
