Andrew Sullivan and the Racial Politics of the Left

    I believe most readers of Redstate are familiar with the writer Andrew Sullivan and the publication, “The Daily Beast”. Mr. Sullivan has been recently noted in the news for his column calling out President Obama after the first Presidential debate in which Governor Romney wiped the floor with the President. Now Mr. Sullivan is back on the liberal reservation with an incendiary column in the | Read More »

    Clinging To “The Precious”: The Loss Of The Obama Presidency

    Who could ever have imagined that the classic author, J. R. R. Tolkien, was able to predict the future? Yet, he could have easily had in mind the 2012 election path of Barack Obama.

    The Relevance of Sarah Palin
