What Provokes Outrage On The Online Left
A few weeks ago, the Washington Post decided to once again insert itself into Virginia’s elections with its vaunted “macaca” maneuver and help its chosen candidate over the finish line. For those who don’t know, to “macaca” (.verb) is when a news outlet seizes upon a gaffe by a politician it doesn’t like and then repeatedly pounds on it day after day, week after week | Read More »
The WAGOP Has A Democratic Sleeper Agent On Its Executive Committee.
Via Ace, I saw this quote in his “Top Headlines” sidebar by by the proprietress of “It’s Only Words” – who should be one and the same as this lady here, and thought it was one of those brilliant things you’ve always thought of but never quite found the right words in which to express it. Nuance is the mantle intellectuals like to don when | Read More »
Bob McDonnell’s “Macaca” Moment – And How He Can Get Past It
2006; Senator George Allen is running for re-election against former Republican Jim Webb. Despite the polls everywhere showing that the GOP was going to have a very unhappy Election Night in a few weeks, Allen was comfortably ahead and already planning his next six years in Washington DC representing the Commonwealth of Virginia. Then he (as he says), derisively referring to a video stalker working | Read More »
The MSM’s Suddenly “Concerned” About Presidents Being Portrayed As Hitler …
Recently, the MSM has been all atwitter and fretting about the “harsh tone” of the debate on President Barack Obama’s quest to nationalize the American healthcare sector. In apparent shock, they shriek that the President is being portrayed with a Hitler mustache at Town Halls and protests. David Gregory had some guests on Meet The Press to discuss this “unique“, “unprecedented” turn of events. PS: | Read More »
I’m Disappointed With Sarah Palin’s Reaction To Letterman’s Attack On Her Daughter(s).
No. I haven’t suddenly become afflicted with Vichyism and become a “moderate.” I fully expect that, as David Letterman increasingly comes under fire, the Left’s pet Republicans, i.e. the Davids Frum and Brooks, Meghan McCain, Kathleen Parker and newly minted “moderate” Peggy Noonan would explode unto our screens to come squarely down on David Letterman’s side – chiding Palin for “overreacting” and warning her that | Read More »
John Ziegler, MSNBC, the GOP and the Democratic Media.
Please take a look at this interchange between John Ziegler and Contessa Brewer on Barack Obama’s MSNBC. (H/T: crippy) John Ziegler just demonstrated the picture-perfect attitude to take towards the “reporters” and “anchors” at any and all of the Democratic networks; ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, etc. Some variant of disdain, contempt or somewhere in between. No liberal-talking point assertion or premise should be left | Read More »
NY State Senate: Defection A Serious Miscalculation by Hiram Monserrate
Moe wrote about Hiram Monserrate back when the story broke about his Christmas-time attack on his girlfriend with a broken beer bottle for having another man’s business card in her purse. The woman needed 20 stitches around her eye. In reaction, the brand new incoming NY Democratic Senate Majority closed ranks around their man and one of their number, State Senator Eric Adams, went so | Read More »
Advice for a “moderate” Republican who voted Obama over McCain.
This is in response to gsy987 here, complaining that the GOP needs to adjust itself to make “moderates” more comfortable. Of course, his advice, like that of David Frum, Rick Moran, David Brooks, etc. is that we jettison social conservatives and demand less loyalty of “moderates” toward the party. My father here is exhibit A right now in everything that is wrong with the Republican | Read More »
The Committeeman Project: Alabama → Arkansas
Update (05/14/2009): A little change; I’ve decided to concentrate the number of precincts per county first and the number of currently serving Committeemen in each county before drilling down to the precinct level. What is the Committeeman Project? Read all about it here. Achance’s comment here neatly captures one of the whys of what we’re doing; returning control of the GOP back to the base | Read More »
Rebuilding the GOP: The Committeeman Project
I firmly believe today that former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell’s Conservative Resurgence Plan was the best thing to come out of the race for the RNC Chairmanship earlier this year. With its focus on precinct-level organization, it not only provided the best blueprint for rebuilding the Party in locales where it has completely collapsed but also the often neglected aspect of strengthening it | Read More »
ACORN’s Bag Of Dirty Tricks
This could be a liberal letting the cat out of the bag prematurely (i.e. “loose lips sink ships“), or a conservative cleverly parodying ACORN types and giving us a heads-up on what to expect from the Left today. As you may know a bunch of redneck traitors are planning a protest on April 15th involving waving around a few tea bags and demonstrating mild irritation | Read More »
Left-Wing Groups (ACORN/HuffPo “Reporters”) Planning To Infiltrate/Sabotage Tea Party Rallies
I remember some time last year, mortified Texas Republicans found themselves having to explain how it was that they granted a vendor selling campaign pins saying; “If Obama is President will we still call it the White House?” space at their convention. All over the blogosphere, the Left went nuts with joy; and remarkably echo-chamber like talking points “See? See?!” they shrieked in smug elation | Read More »
Fratricide And Ted Stevens
Yesterday (and I swear I had no idea what was coming down the pike the next day), I responded to a comment by one of Redstate’s more clever mobies (he is clever because he avoids the blam stick by carefully limiting himself to one comment per month or so). Yil, of course, was trying to plant the meme that former US Attorney Chris Christie, the | Read More »
The Campaign To Bankrupt The Palin Family
From just September till now, Sarah Palin has accumulated a personal dept of over $500,000 in legal fees defending herself against fake/false/frivolous ethics charges. That’s Five Hundred Thousand Dollars. A group of Alaska liberals, with the apparent cooperation of members of the Alaska Democratic Party have been filing ethics charge after ethics charge against Sarah Palin. The aim? Not to get her impeached and booted | Read More »
Why Allowing Open Homosexuality In The Military Is A Bad Idea.
NOTE: Was responding to this and it got too big. A friend of mine in the Army explained to me once, why the bulk of servicemen from the top officers to the lowest enlisteds are against the allowing of open homosexuality in the Armed Forces. Primarily, it was unit cohesion, and he gave me an explanation, that I thought made sense. Unit cohesion depends upon | Read More »
My Beef With Michael Steele
Who is your GOP precinct committeeman? Your GOP county chairman? Your county’s representative(s) on the state’s central committee? What if you’re looking for any local upcoming Republican Party events in your county or district? What if you want to host one such event yourself? What if you want to organize with other Republicans in your locale in support of a reform-minded conservative Republican running for | Read More »
On Rush VS Obama, I Beg To Differ …
Unfortunately, I have to disagree with EPU and everyone else that the Democrats picking Rush as their current target for destruction now that Dubya is back in Crawford for good “can’t possibly end well” for them. I personally think it can, and that actually, if things continue the way they’re going, we’re going to find ourselves talking about how to mitigate the damage somewhere down | Read More »
Cao VS Vitter? Really?
Newt Gingrich is right. Republican campaign consultants are probably the dumbest, most short-sighted unimaginative pedestrian minds working in politics today. And, in hindsight, even while acknowledging the great job he did in 2004, I think I’ll lay some of the blame at the feet of Karl Rove as one of the major reasons why in recent years with his 50+1 strategy. On the surface, it | Read More »
Racist Gives House To Black Woman. Rent Free.
[H/T: HotAir] Liberals in academia, media, and entertainment have one particular unshakeable belief; all Republicans are racists. You can be a life-long member of the NAACP. You can be married to a black woman. You could have spent ten years in Africa running a clinic providing healthcare to orphans. It doesn’t matter – the instant you register as a Republican and declare an interest in | Read More »
RE: Jindal to Give State of the Union Response
The decision to give it to Jindal to deliver the response to President Obama’s address to Congress is an uncommonly good one – I wouldn’t have thought it would ever occur to the fossilized mind-set of the GOP leadership; someone must have dropped IQ pills in Boehner and McConnell’s water. Hopefully the effect would last for a while. But credit where credit’s due. This was | Read More »
