The Day That Andrew Breitbart & Company Came To Tucson
Cross-posted from the Tucson Citizen Last April, the Tucson Tea Party (TTP) gathered in Reid Park. 2011 had been a rough year for the TTP. Three months earlier, liberals and the media (yes, I repeat myself) made it sound as if Jared Loughner had been a fellow traveler with the Tea Party movement. By April, though, it was clear that the TTP had been unfairly | Read More »
What is the SMART GOP Congressional response to Obama’s recess appointments?
As all of us know, President Obama picked a fight with the GOP this week over recess appointments. The question now is—what’s the smart way to respond? At first blush, I’m in agreement with Ace, from Ace of Spades, posted the day Obama threw down the gauntlet: Basically Obama is running for President and he wants his opponent to be “Congressional Republicans”. Sometimes the best | Read More »
Is there a conservative alternative to Mens Wearhouse?
It pains me to write this, because most of my professional wardrobe was purchased at Mens Wearhouse. However, after reading this, I’m willing to look for another clothing store: Last night, a reporter for the Contra Costa Times and Oakland Tribune photographed a surprising sign in the window of the Men’s Wearhouse Oakland store. The sign reads “We stand with the 99%. Closed Wednesday November | Read More »
Looking for a link to a critical piece of 2004 campaign history—“Ten Ways That Dick Cheney Can Kill You.”
Remember that great picture, “Ten Ways that Dick Cheney Can Kill You?” I do, and I’m dying to find a high-resolution copy of that picture. I’ve Googled it, and I can find a few links—to low-resolution copies. Anyone know where I can find a good one? Moderators, if you want to put my request on hold until the next RS Open Thread, I’ll understand…but I | Read More »
Urgent! UK and US SOF Need To Perform Medical Rescue Mission in Benghazi
Fortunately for us, we now know just where to find the patient. Lockerbie bomber Abdel Basset Al Megrahi will today mark the second anniversary of his release from prison in a safe house with his family. Libya’s under-fire regime has called for any celebrations to remain ‘low key’. Megrahi was filmed last month by Libyan state television appearing at a rally. Despite the fact he | Read More »
Will David Prosser have to go down, in order to restore, ahem, “civility” on the WI Supreme Court?
I’m noticing a “plague on both of their houses” attitude in some of the conservative blogosphere’s reaction to the “Battle in Madison” between Justices Bradley and Prosser. Specifically, I see commentary that implies that BOTH sides are at fault here. Glenn Reynolds, in Instapundit: UPDATE: More details arise in Wisconsin’s “Chokegate.” Justice Abrahamson isn’t coming off too well. But then, who is? Really, if I had | Read More »
Looking for advice—I’d like to track down somone who threatened me online
Looking for advice on tracking down someone who threatened me online. I write a conservative blog on my town’s online newspaper. A commenter wrote that I should be shot. I have the IP address—is there any way I can track down who sent the message? At the very least, if I can put some heat on the Internet provider, I can make the dude’s life | Read More »
If CNN Laughs Out Loud at The GOP Tomorrow Night—I Wouldn’t Blame Them
Remember the 2008 CNN You Tube GOP Presidential candidate debate? I do. Remember the penultimate questioner of the night? A retired military flag officer who questioned the GOP candidates about the subject of gay marraige—definately an uncomforatble subject for GOP candidates. I do. Remember how, even before the program was over!, conservatives had researched this retiree online, found out he was associated with the Hillary | Read More »
It’s important that “Atlas Shrugged” do well this weekend
We all know it’s risky to be a conservative fillmmaker or actor in Hollywood. We all want to see more conservative-friendly (or, at the very least, not-conservative-insulting) movies and TV shows. Well, one way to make that happen is to financially reward those conservative folks in Hollywood in front of the camera, behind it and paying for it. If “Atlas Shrugged” has a good opening | Read More »
I can understand Hillary dissing Fox News—but ROBERT GATES?
Is it possible that the the two most prominent Cabinet officials in the Executive Branch decided to blow off Fox News today. Is the White House playing favorites again with media outlets? There has been a back-and-forth between Fox News and the White House ever since President Barack Obama took his oath in 2009. And the latest episode appears to have occurred on Sunday after | Read More »
