Possibly Drunk Rutgers Economist Susan Feinberg Whines To Susan Crabtree Who Is Hard Up For A Story
What happens when a whiney drunk liberal economist runs to a whiney lefty former journalist hard up for a story of something on something to salvage her reputation? You get salacious nonsense like this from Talking Points Memo. Horror of horrors, a possibly drunk and possibly crazy left-wing economist Rutgers named Susan Feinberg, and her husband who she probably calls her partner, saw Representative Paul | Read More »
Is Barack Obama Obfuscating the Cause of the Shutdown?
“The Democrats are so invested in the right to murder children they’ll let, to use the Democrats’ own rhetoric, old people starve.” The leftwing partisans are in full spin mode now after weeks of privately hoping for a government shutdown (though I have wanted one too). For a taste of the spin, go to Talking Points Memo. According to Talking Points Memo, Barack Obama and | Read More »
Amazing: A View Inside the Josh Marshall Echo Chamber
This one just makes me laugh. Josh Marshall, Editor of the left-wing “Talking Points Memo,” writes, “A year ago, no one took seriously the idea that a federal health care mandate was unconstitutional.” Maybe on the left, but on the right it was a fundamental argument. In fact, just before Christmas one year ago, the Senate Republicans voted unanimously that the individual mandate was, in | Read More »
Is Alan Grayson A Republican Now?
Well now, only a few days ago Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo was crying in his beer about all the violence and threats of violence. He said, “No one who is even remotely honest can pretend that anything about this is bipartisan in character. The Right and yes the national Republican party has been stirring this pot for months.” From Josh Marshall’s own website | Read More »
Josh Marshall and the Democrats are Rubber. We’re Glue. Except For Our 30 Story Tall Rock Throwing Giant.
“As incitement goes, I find “they want you to die” just a teensy bit more blood-thirsty than “read the bill,” but maybe that’s just me. I don’t do “dog whistles” and code words.” If the left burns down their own straw men, can we have them arrested for arson? That seems to be where we are headed. Josh Marshall and the Democrats have descended into | Read More »
Silly Brian Beutler, It’s God, Not Mother Nature
Over at Talking Points Memo, Brian Beutler chronicles the follies of the Democrats and health care. Joe Lieberman has gone back to Connecticut in advance of the blizzard. This leaves the Democrats needing Republican votes to get back to health care. At the end of the article, Brian writes, “[D]on’t be surprised to hear a new Republican talking point: Even Mother Nature hates health care | Read More »
ZOMG! Pray?! No Way! Repent of This Nonsense You Christofascists.
Last night, 17,000 19,298 people joined Senator Jim DeMint and me on the telephone to talk about several Senate races. Talking Points Memo makes this the lead story this evening. And what is one of the key take aways? Yours truly asked activists to not just donate to candidates but . . . wait for it . . . to pray for candidates too. Scandalous. | Read More »
In Which I Am Validated By the Left as a Consequential and Influential Person
As I mentioned earlier today, Talking Points Memo intended to do a hit job on me and I failed to cooperate. Their reporter, who used to write obituaries and cover corn dog eating contests for a small newspaper, decided she wanted to be an activist and left for pastures further left. Today, after I failed to cooperate, TPM released its hit job in which they | Read More »

Deborah Honeycutt, BMW Direct, and a misunderstanding of direct mail programs
A lot of Democrats are making a big deal out of this. Any conservative who has ever done a direct mail program is reading all the reports and scratching their head wondering what the big deal is. In fact, the only reason this is somewhat of a story is because the FEC has required a change in accounting methodology that now deepens the disclosure requirements | Read More »
