So, Hillary’s donated her college speaking fees to charity? OK…produce the evidence ( and one obvious reason why she’s lying)
Hillary’s book tour cum White House campaign try-out isn’t going as well as expected. Stung by comments about her wealth, and her inability to relate to the concerns of the common folk, she’s managed to elevate “foot in mouth disease” to a new level. Let’s call it “CMS” for “cankle in mouth syndrome.” So she’s now claiming, as reported by the AP, that she has | Read More »
Whither the Democrat party post 2016?
I know, I know….we haven’t even had the 2014 elections yet. People succeed because often they have the ability to think ahead, into the future, to see just over the crest of the hill, or around the corner. The same hold true with politics. Barack Obama was elected in 2008 promising to “fundamentally transform America.” It’s possible he may instead end up “fundamentally transforming the | Read More »
So, would it really be THAT bad if we don’t win the Senate in November?
(from the diaries by streiff) The latest election results in Mississippi have generated considerable anger among conservatives. The tactics of the GOPe are disgraceful; there’s no question about that. And some are saying that it’s time to play hardball..Republicans in Mississippi should either NOT vote in the Senate race, or even better ( or worse, depending on one’s perspective) vote for the Democrat. That would | Read More »
Red State Contest: Guess the date that Thad Cochran announces his retirement. Tie breaker: guess the excuse…er, reason
OK, we’re all gnashing our teeth today. Democrats in Mississippi decided who will be the next Republican senator from the Magnolia state. Obviously, we need to change the rules, and end this open primary idiocy. However, no reason we can’t have a little fun along the way… Therefore, a little contest for all you politically astute Red Staters.. GUESS THE DATE THAT THAD COCHRAN ANNOUNCES | Read More »
Observe the utter stupidity of Darrell Issa gavelling Trey Gowdy to be quiet.
Gawd….will we EVER learn anything? If you saw the IRS hearings last night, one thing was obvious: Trey Gowdy OWNED Koskinen. Gowdy was magnificent. Here’s the video. Watch..watch it again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Avfm2urqdHM And at the end, we are forced to witness Issa gavelling Gowdy down, as his time has expired, as he is skewering Koskinen. I don’t fault Issa here..as Chair he is charged with seeing | Read More »
Moe, Larry, Curly and Shemp: a.k.a. Barack Obama, Joe Biden, John Kerry, and Chuck Hagel
By all accounts, Oscar Wilde should be enjoying a resurgence in popularity inside the Beltway. His observation that “life imitates art” is proving to have legs, as evidenced by the clowns now running the US government. Those of us who grew up with the “Three Stooges” are crying in our beer and/or oatmeal as we observe the inmates running the asylum. And before anyone question | Read More »
Thinking the unthinkable: What if this administration really doesn’t have a clue?
Insults are as old as politics. And they’re bipartisan; applied equally by one side against the other: “They’re total idiots.” “They have no idea what they’re doing.” “Miserable failure” ( remember that one? repeated ad nauseam by the Democrats during the Bush years). “The inmates are running the asylum.” Take your pick. But as we consider the present state of our nation and planet, we are | Read More »
A huge opportunity ( and test) for the MSM: Mississippi newspapers and TV stations must force a debate between McDaniel and Cochran
OK, we’re into a run-off in Mississippi, (unless Cochran decides to concede). This contest has huge implications, both for the GOP and for the country, and has garnered massive national media attention. But, surprisingly ( or not) the candidates did not debate once. Cochran declined every opportunity to do so, amid several reports that questioned his alertness and vitality. So we’re presented with a SIX | Read More »
Was Bergdahl’s exchange Obama’s attempt to “wag the dog?”
Most Americans, as they learn more about Bergdahl’s desertion, and the incredibly high price Obama paid to exchange him, are scratching their heads, and wondering “Why?” and “What were they possibly thinking?” Actually, there is an answer…a very simple one. THEY ARE INCREDIBLY STUPID AND INEPT. Occam’s razor tells us that when we have several different theories, the simplest one is most often correct. Or, | Read More »
A question for Chairman Priebus: Why isn’t the 2014 Republican Leadership Conference being livecast?
Since RNC Chairman Priebus often graces Red State with his comments, I thought I’d attempt to engage him in a brief dialogue. In case you hadn’t noticed, the 2014 Republican Leadership conference started yesterday in New Orleans, and continues through Saturday. Here’s the website: http://rlc2014.com/rlc2014/ There are some superb speakers: Bobby Jindal, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee,Alan West, Rick Perry, to name a few…. So why | Read More »
