Fast Food No More: How The SEIU & Union Front Groups Want To Occupy Your Big Mac
With union bosses once again clamoring that they are ‘in crisis,’ union bosses are looking to expand their membership into areas that have been traditionally immune to unions. For the last several months, union-supported fast food workers have been staging “impromptu” strikes throughout the country. Like the union-supported Occupy movement before it, the fast-food workers’ efforts are being coordinated by media-savvy professional organizers employed by | Read More »

We get this sort of hype from partisans regularly. Many Democrats have been going through it about Texas. Remember the Senate guy who was | Read More »
The Importance of Virginia
Yesterday, the AFL-CIO declared it was going all in in Virginia to get Terry McAuliffe elected. The AFL-CIO has massive amounts of money and, should McAuliffe win, as Jim Geraghty, I, and others have noted, the media and liberal Republicans will claim conservatives cannot get elected. Ken Cuccinelli, as the Attorney General of Virginia, was the first State AG to go to court opposing Obamacare. | Read More »
The Obamacare Throwdown – Let’s Not Be Gutless Wonders
Let me be blunt. If you are opposed to using the Continuing Resolution to de-fund Obamacare because you are afraid that conservatives and the GOP might take the blame in the media, then you are a political coward.

Dana Carvey, The Rodeo Clown and The Head On A Stick
You had to feel for the poor guys over on the set of Game of Thrones. They had this scene where King Joffrey took his girlfriend Sansa on a tour of all the heads he’d recently severed,* but were short a few plastic masks to paint up as decaying cadaver heads. They couldn’t seem to locate any Jerry Brown of Arnold Schwarzenegger faces so they were forced, against their better judgment**, to use a facial likeness of President George W. Bush. It’s amazing how accidents happen. It wasn’t anything, you know, political. And who can forget how hilarious Dana Carvey used to be. “A thousand points of light!” he’d intone in his most mocking imitation of a President in the middle of his re-election campaign. But this was “comedy.” He wouldn’t do that to influence any voters, now would he? It’s all in good fun you Crazy Wingnuts, so lighten up.
Now we get to the amusing goings on over at the Missouri State Fair. It seems a rodeo clown there came up with the idea of running around in front of an angry bull wearing a Barack Obama Mask. It wasn’t hilariously funny. Better than Letterman’s jokes about A-Rod knocking up Sarah Palin’s children between HGH injections, but not on a level with vintage Dana Carvey SNL. The Left was of course tolerate and patient. They deiced to just let the lowbrows do their “Dance of The Sloping Foreheads.” It’s just comedy they reasoned. It can’t hurt anyone. Oh Wait….

No Way in Hell Will I Support Nancy Mace
People keep asking me about Nancy Mace running against Lindsey Graham. At the RedState Gathering, people wanted to know why she wasn’t on the agenda. Well, by the time it became an issue, the agenda was full, but even had it not been full I would not have asked her to speak. I have said for a while that conservatives eager to beat the establishment | Read More »
