Soledad O’Brien on the way out at CNN?
Well, that’s the way looks from my front porch anyway. She’s been taking lots of lumps lately and word has it that her bosses are tired of being embarrassed by her vacuous behavior. Look for election night to be her final fling. Replacement??? Hey, thanks for asking. If Obama wins, they’ll be looking for a conservative so they can claim “balance”. First choice David Brooks | Read More »
It’s the polling folks.
Promoted from the diaries by Bill S Today, Gravis Marketing released a poll showing Obama over Romney 45.2% to 44.3%. Brown is up over Mandel 43.9% to 43.0%. Democrats up less than a point in both races and Romney is boots on the ground in Ohio. So, what to make of this? Well gosh, thanks for asking. If you’ll recall, I went on a rant | Read More »
Turns out maybe “guns” weren’t the problem in Colorado.
Interesting story that won’t be reported in the media-that-used-to-be-important. Just a tad of background. The Colorado shooter was a graduate student at the University of Colorado. He dropped out of school, acquired some guns and explosives and booby trapped his apartment and shot up the theater, killing and wounding a bunch of folks. The immediate reaction from the left was there are too many guns | Read More »
Harry Reid is a pedophile.
I got that from a reliable source who made me promise not to reveal his name. But he knows. Honest. Now I’m sure some would expect me to back up this claim with some of those “fact” thingys or maybe a link or two. Well, given that I’ve promise anonymity for my source, not happening. Just Google “Harry Reid pedophile” there are 1.79 million hits. | Read More »
Just in case you’ve forgotten what an honorable President looks like…
It’s no secret I was not a fan of George W Bush’s domestic policies or a bunch of other stuff. But I’ve always held him up as a fantastic example of good man, a caring human being and I expect he’ll easily be remembered as our best “former-President”. Here’s the latest example of his humanity and please hang in there until the end, it’s not | Read More »
Hmmmm, looks like ANOTHER oopsie in Wisconsin for the Left.
And this one could be a BIG one. As you will recall, after getting the hay bashed out of their heads last week by Scott Walker, two memes came out of the election. The first, “we was outspent”, I deconstructed here. The second, “yeah but Obama is beating the pants off Walker” crumbled today. Let me be clear, I don’t put a whole lot of | Read More »
Social conservatives aren’t.
The people who claim the mantle of leadership in the so-called social conservative movement are going to war against conservatives, those who actually believe in small government, freedom, individual responsibility and individual accountability, again. Erick hit the nail on the head early this year when he noted Rick Santorum is a big-government pro-lifer. So are the Catholic Bishops and so, according to the account in | Read More »
Walker wins with Koch money!!
Open letter to The Left and their Union Thugs… The “money” meme in this particular race is stupid to the point of insanity. The Democrats and unions and the muddled media have been pounding this single issue for well over a year. Cowardly elected Democrats ran across state lines to block the vote on Walker’s reforms. It was front page headlines all over the state | Read More »
Great news is building in Indiana!
From IndyStar.com… A new poll shows Treasurer Richard Mourdock building a commanding lead over Sen. Richard Lugar. The Howey/DePauw Indiana Battleground Poll, conducted by two prominent Republican and Democratic pollsters, shows Mourdock with a 48 percent to 38 percent lead over Lugar. [...] The poll was conducted April 30 to May 1 of 700 likely voters by Republican Christine Matthews of Bellwether Research and Democrat | Read More »
Rick Santorum. Glad you’re gone, don’t come back.
Rick Santorum. Big government pro-lifer. And maybe even not so much on the pro-life thingy. We’ve been deluged by hundreds of pathetic posts defending Rick Santorum’s “conservatism. Thankfully his campaign has been suspended and don’t have to read that stupid crap anymore. There is talk of “Santorum ’16″ but after today that claptrap will hopefully die a metaphorically violent death. From DC Caller today… | Read More »
A Mighty Warrior Has Gone Home.
From his website… LANSDOWNE, Va., April 21, 2012— Evangelical Christianity lost one of its most eloquent and influential voices today with the death of Charles W. “Chuck” Colson. The Prison Fellowship and Colson Center for Christian Worldview founder died at 3:12 p.m. on Saturday from complications resulting from a brain hemorrhage. Colson was 80. A Watergate figure who emerged from the country’s worst political scandal, | Read More »
The final embarrassment. April 24.
Rick Santorum looks like he’s toast. A month ago he was even in Wisconsin and up by double digits in Pennsylvania. Last night he got blown out in Wisconsin based on the Republicans who voted – he did manage to get close when you include the crossover Democrats who voted for him. A week ago he was down to two ahead in Pennsylvania. And that’s | Read More »
Good for Sarah Palin! *** UPDATE: Comments from McCain! ***
THIS has the potential for absolute greatness. Remember Katie Couric? Yeah, the one who got fired because she couldn’t turn around CBS News. You’ll remember that she was the “star” of the “Today” show, well, according to the Washington Post.. Katie Couric, the former sweetheart of NBC News’s “Today” show, is going to co-anchor ABC News’s “Good Morning America” next week, which will most likely | Read More »
Santorum is wrong on his “manufacturing zero tax”.
I’ll cut to the chase, Rick Santuorm is not only a big-government pro-lifer, he’s part of the reason we’re overrun with government. Santorum is trying to sell the idea that he’s some sort of “conservative” and lots of fools are buying it. He does have a strong record on issues that are near and dear to the hearts of the so-called Social Conservatives, but if | Read More »
A question for Social Conservatives…
We’re seeing a number of commenters and a diarist or two insisting they won’t violate their principles and cast a vote for serial womanizer Newt Gingrich. I wasn’t real happy with the idea of Newt being President when he announced, for a whole variety of reasons, though his personal relationship issues were pretty far down on the list. But we’re where we are today, | Read More »
The beginning of the end…
or at least the end of the beginning, of abortion on demand. And, it’s been initiated in two VERY blue states. Some personal background. I’m ardently pro-life and have been involved in the movement for well over 30 years. I also am a firm believer that there is next to nothing that a President can do to stop abortion, beyond a minimal impact with Executive | Read More »
Lamar Smith is a pathetic weasel.
You can find all the details about Smiths in-kind work for the MPAA with SOPA in Neils diary, but I just found an update courtesy of Instapundit and TechDirt: Despite the fact that Congress was supposed to be out of session until the end of January, the Judiciary Committee has just announced plans to come back to continue the markup this coming Wednesday. This is | Read More »
Hmmm. Interesting results over there…
At HotAir… A little background first. I think it’s common knowledge that I don’t like “candidate specific” polling this far out and I absolutely hate internet polls. So, I will be making no claims about the efficacy of this one. But it’s interesting nonetheless. HotAir tends to be home for lots of fans of Sarah Palin. I’m not accusing HotAir of being biased or being | Read More »
So here’s a new standard for stupidity…
From WBALTV.com, we bring you [drum roll please]… This would be Otis Rolley Otis Rolley is a candidate for Mayor of Baltimore. You guess which party. Otis Rolley is dumber than a box of small rock. That’s rock singular. Small rock singular. Multiple rocks would overwhelm his intellect. If elected, he could give Shiela Jackson Lee a run for the dumbest elected official in the | Read More »
Time to elect a RINO.
But he’s not running, a victim of his ability to put both feet in his mouth on the national stage and the self-righteous stupidity of one segment of the Party. I recall the frequent epithets hurled at Mitch Daniels when he was considering getting into the fray, and often as not “RINO” was the least of the accusations. From the Washington Times yesterday… As Washington | Read More »
