Why DE Republicans Should Vote For Mike Castle.
By and large, I heartily despise GOP “moderates.” Most especially “moderate” Republicans that allow themselves to be used as a foil against other Republicans so the media can cast the party as being full of “extremists” with them being the only ones who are “reasonable” in the caucus. My posting history for the past five years on RS is proof of that. So what about | Read More »
NJ Dems finally catch a break …
The Democrats and their media friends in the state of New Jersey finally have something to celebrate. The Christie Administration finally made a misstep – and a somewhat big one considering the price tag – $400 million of Federal education money. The background is that the state applied for Race To The Top funds and only lost out to Ohio thanks to the failure to | Read More »
Perry v. Schwarzennegger: A Proposition
A judge-proof marriage amendment (I think). Whereas marriage in the state of [state] is recognized as providing the best and most stable environment for the procreation and upbringing of children, only marriage between a man and a woman, who do not share the same parent or parents, and none of whose parents share the same parent or parents, and neither of whom is a parent | Read More »
Progressive *snicker* Brilliance: Burn A Confederate Flag At A Tea Party
Over at Josh Marshall’s far Left Talking Points Memo blog, they’re all giddy over the latest bright idea to issue forth from the progressive mind; call Tea Partiers racists! Well, no … they already do that – they know Tea Partiers are racists and that the many people of other races who attend Tea Party rallies and speak on stage either are the product of | Read More »
To Judge Walker’s defenders; what’s wrong with incestuous marriage?

Chris Christie: *Shredding* The Script
I give you (once again) The Honorable Governor Christopher James Christie of New Jersey. More here … One of the more pernicious developments of the past two decades has been the widespread acceptance of the Beltway proposition that there was something fundamentally wrong with disagreement in politics. That a failure to achieve a consensus or “Bipartisanship” on any given issue is a sign of a | Read More »
PA-12 05/18/2010 Turn-Out Percentages: D (62) – R (34) – I(4) … or why Tim Burns lost.
Maybe I missed it but in all the analyses of PA-12 that appeared on RedState afterwards, I don’t think I saw anyone mention the fact that PA-12’s Independents constituted only a tiny 4% of the electorate last week. I think that, more than anything else explains the Critz victory and its magnitude. Jay Cost highlights this rather emphatically … This is a hugely important point to | Read More »
SB 1070: Making Democrats Put Their Money Where Their Mouths Are …
One of the more annoying features of American politics is the fact that the Left is hardly ever made to put their money where their mouths are, to put up or shut the **** up. So they feel free to adopt moral poses that they never have to back up with meaningful action because they almost never get confronted on it. Take SB 1070, the | Read More »
In Praise of Governor Chris “Kratos” Christie.
In the four months since Chris Christie was sworn in as the 55th Governor of the state of New Jersey, he’s earned himself a few nicknames and prayers for his death. “Governor Krispy Kreme” or Governor Bully by his Leftist detractors on most NJ websites where they congregate. A liberal Newark Star-Ledger columnist prefers the double-entendre of Governor Wrecking Ball. Admirers, including George Will, have | Read More »
Winning the battle on SB1070
Former Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY) may not have been a conservative’s idea of an ideal Senator from a state as Deep Red as Wyoming but he was right; “An allegation unchallenged is an allegation believed.” Republicans still seem to not get this very simple idea; you cannot cede the information battlefield to the other side and expect to keep a lead, much less win. Which | Read More »
