To Judge Walker’s defenders; what’s wrong with incestuous marriage?

I have degrees in Biochemistry and Pharmocology and I am currently a medical researcher in a prestigious pharmaceutical company. I pay my taxes, donate significant amounts of money and time to charity and I am an assistant coach with the local minor league baseball team in my neighborhood. I served | Read More »
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 »
On Rubio: Two Names For The Self-Righteous To Remember; Burns and Stevens.
As in Senator Conrad Burns (MT) and Senator Ted Stevens (AK). Both of whom lost their most recent re-election battles in solid Red states exactly because of the Pharisee attitudes on display here by far too many people. So many of us were so concerned with appearing beyond reproach that we completely abandoned the concept of innocent until proven guilty the instant they were fingered | Read More »
Charlie Crist: Where Next?
My belief is that Crist is going to leave the GOP and go Independent on his way to switching to the Democrats in the next four years, perhaps to try and run again for Governor. Which means he’s going to drop out of the race for the Senate and concentrate his attention on making sure Rubio loses. The fact is that, thanks to his SB6 | Read More »
Cui Bono?: When “Attacks” And “Death Threats” Are … Convenient.
If Democrats really want the so-called “Death Threats” and “attacks” on their offices to end, they should simply pick up the phone and call Tim Kaine. Kevin Jackson just leaped to the top of my list of favorite people with this beautiful performance he delivered as he faced off against David Shuster on MSNBC. While David Frum and other PCCs (“Polite Company Conservatives”) would have | Read More »
Left & David Frum (BIRM): If Bill Doesn’t Work, Blame GOP!
As everyone knows, liberals are far from fans of accountability, responsibility, etc. or any other concept that suggests being held to account for their words and actions. A few days ago, Thomas Frank (of “What’s the Matter with Kansas?” fame) writing in his WSJ Tilting Yard column was obviously in a state of high dudgeon at the Texas State Board of Education’s stipulation that High | Read More »
