The Proper Response To Liberal “Blood-Libel” Faux-Outrage UPDATE: Note to Erick
There is an unfortunate tendency by Conservatives, particularly on TV, to acquiesce – sometimes without really being conscious of it – to false premises put to them by liberals, either simply for the sake of argument so they can move on or just simply because they want to get along. An example is Michael Steele nodding along to D.L. Hughley saying the GOP Convention looked | Read More »
What Does Jared Lee Loughner Say About The State Of American Politics?
It must be really frustrating being a liberal journalist and/or blogger today. Increasingly, they’re seeing their chance to politically profit from the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords fade away. First of all, after spending all that time and energy to plant the idea in the minds of the American people that Jared Lee Loughner was specifically instructed by Sarah Palin to pick up a gun and | Read More »
Are Liberal Journalists And Bloggers Trying To Have Sarah Palin Assassinated? In A Word, Yes.
From the moment John McCain unveiled her as his choice of running mate in 2008, Sarah Palin has become a hate-figure to vast swathes – and all evidence points to – a significant majority, of the Left. Her very existence inarguably sends liberals, from the tonier and sophisticated precincts where New York Times journalists congregate to the scatological feverswamps of the DailyKos, into paroxysms of | Read More »
Message to GOV. Mitch Daniels: Man The @#%! Up.
H/T: fmaidment. Maybe I’m the only one, but my impression from everything that’s been said and written about Governor Mitch Daniels (R) of Indiana from the time he was George W. Bush’s OMB Director has always been that of a steel-spined budgetary genius with mad cost-benefit analyzing skillz. So, one could imagine my surprise when I read this; INDIANAPOLIS | Bills filed in the Indiana | Read More »
DADT Repeal is just the beginning …
Everyone acknowledges that gays have served and are serving today in the Armed Services. The fact that they have had to keep their sexual preferences to themselves made the difference – i.e. two gay male soldiers serving in close proximity with each other – who might even find themselves attracted to each other – would likely not even know that the other is gay, so | Read More »
CT GOV: Bag of Uncounted Ballots “Found”
UPDATE [H/T: Ace]: CT voter fraud caught on video … … Mayor Jason McCoy has obtained a video that was taken inside a polling place in Bridgeport and shows a poll watcher warning a poll worker not to mix unofficial ballots with official ballots. She ignores him and he is escorted away. There are additional charges: Some voters were given more than one ballot Other | Read More »
Democrats and Union Officials Miraculously “Finding” Lost “Ballot Boxes In Their Car Trunks
This happens in every close election. It happened in Washington State in the 2002 Gubernatorial Rossi-Gregoire race – Rossi won the first and second recounts, with King County Democrats finding more and more votes until Gregoire finally won – on the third recount. At which point, WA newspapers began calling on Rossi to accept the “results” and concede. They tried to get car trunk ballots | Read More »
Message of the Day
VOTE No matter how Dark Blue or Deep Crimson your district and state – Vote. No matter how far ahead or behind the Republican is in the polls – Vote. It’s really simple; we win, they lose. Ain’t no shame in running up the score. We’re aiming for EVERY SINGLE SEAT. Vote. Important Update: If you’ve voted already – either absentee or early voting – | Read More »
No More (Norm) Colemans.
Senator Al Franken. Senator. Al. Franken. If that doesn’t grate or demonstrate just how badly the GOP screwed up during the Bush Administration then I don’t know what else in politics does. But, thankfully, after just four years, voters have apparently seen just how bad a miscalculation it was to put all the levers of power in Democratic hands, and the GOP looks set to | Read More »
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 »
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 »
