Message for Meg Whitman: Go on Offense. Now.
The best way past a “scandal” for a Republican is through it. Take a day or two – no more, no less – to think it through, find a line of attack and go on offense. If George Allen had done that instead of trying to plead, ignore and then cower his way past the “macaca” incident, we’d not have the tragedy of both Senators | Read More »
The Democrats’ Appropriate New Logo
I’ve designed a logo here and there (for friends and family) and one thing I’ve always kept in mind in that line is the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) principle. In other words, “less is more” – the less complicated, the easier it is to remember, the better for the brand and for the customer. But sometimes less is just less. Take the Democrats’ (please!) | Read More »
O’Donnell Won Round One. It’s Time To Help Her Win Round Two.
[haystack edit-go HERE to help her where she needs it most…] I didn’t have many (or any) good things to say about Christine O’Donnell … but that ends now. The woman, whatever her faults, has to be given credit for having something that has been sorely lacking in the GOP’s Senate Caucus; Guts – with a big scarlet capital G. So finally, I do have | Read More »
AP: Sharron Angle “is Anti-Anything Latino”
You know what would really shake things up for the Angle campaign? A little push-back against the Press that ends up with a solid hit on Harry Reid. In fact, if she could make this SOP with every little hit piece that comes along, I’d bet she’d see a leap in her numbers. For example, NR’s Jay Nordlinger’s eye recently fell on this gem of | Read More »
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?
Hello. My name is William Corman Phillips. I am a 32 year old white male. 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 »
