Lois Lerner’s Emails Are to Obama as the Missing Watergate Audio Was to Nixon
Lois Lerner’s emails are gone. Her hard drive crashed and the IRS wants us to believe a scenario that they would never believe if it happened to you. They claim her emails are not salvageable. There is no backup apparently. They waited until Friday afternoon to tell the world. Expect the press to ignore it and gloss it over. The circle of jerks in the | Read More »
On the Importance of Sticks
You’re probably not reading this website unless you were already aware that earlier this week, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost his primary to a guy almost no one had ever heard of, even among the subset of people who follow politics closely. A lot of ink has been spilled examining the reasons for Cantor’s defeat, whether it did or did not have to do | Read More »

Iraq continues to melt down. Kurdish peshmerga have seized the city of Kirkuk. Kirkuk has long been a point of contention between the Iraqi government and the Kurd minority because it was originally Kurdish, depopulated and recolonized by Arabs under Saddam Hussein, and it is the center of Iraq’s northern oil producing region. Mosul, which feel earlier in the week to ISIS, is the capital | Read More »
House Conservatives Are a Caricature
News has come out this afternoon that Raul Labrador will take on Kevin McCarthy in the bid to replace Eric Cantor as Majority Leader. Good. Someone needs to. Conservatives need to have someone in each position so that the other men cannot take on the veneer of being conservative. Give them no room to pose. Marlin Stutzman and Labrador are proving their worth as conservative | Read More »
Thad Cochran unaware Eric Cantor lost his primary and supports Obamacare
It has been noted by outside observers that Thad Cochran seems to have a tenuous grip on his surroundings. Whether it is the onset of dementia or simply and elderly man losing his touch on the day to day we don’t know. But his shaky grip on reality has been on display for a while. For instance, Atlantic reporter Molly Ball reported this: I followed | Read More »

Was Immigration Important in Eric Cantor’s Loss? Yes and No
Was immigration the biggest factor in Eric Cantor’s loss? Much of the post mortem analysis of the primary election in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District has focused on immigration as the issue that allowed political neophyte Dave Brat to beat the House Majority Leader. But was it really the most important issue in the race? Actually, no, it was not.

Gun Grabber Michael Bloomberg Spends $250,000.00 to Get Thad Cochran Re-Elected
Hey Mississippi. You know Michael Bloomberg right? He’s the guy who wants to take your guns away. He’s the guy who created a non-profit group to agitate against the second amendment. He’s the guy spreading lies about the number of school shootings in the country. Michael Bloomberg is also the guy who just gave a pro-Thad Cochran Super PAC $250,000.00. Gun grabbing Michael Bloomberg is | Read More »
Al Qaeda On The Run – From People Even More Savage Than Themselves
During the electoral silly-season that was 2012, Presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney predictably clashed on Foreign Policy. Candidate Romney felt compelled to argue that America should keep troops in Iraq and trust the Russians about as far as we could throw them. Barack Obama disagreed with this assertion with his customary dismissive arrogance. His flunkies at OFA* expressed this sentiment on Twitter in | Read More »
Social Conservatism and Poll-Driven Values
Social conservatism has long been considered one of the three “legs” of the 3-legged stool of conservatism (along with fiscal and defense conservatism). There are a number of facets of this “branch” of conservative thought, including how we think about and set policy around issues involving marriage & family policy, abortion, education, crime & punishment, and other related topics. The Republican party has long held | Read More »
Thad Cochran loves him some pork… in a Biblical kind of way
Any doubt that doddering, semi-somnolent Thad Cochran was a true lover of pork was put to rest yesterday. According to the Hattiesburg (MS) American, Cochran said: he grew up playing in the country, picking pecans and doing “all kinds of indecent things with animals” in the area. That is one helluva an admission, even in this day and age. Assuming, arguendo, that Cochran was being | Read More »
Comedy Central Daily Show more trusted for news than MSNBC
As I’ve long suspected, MSNBC is a failed comedy that takes itself too seriously. Its trust rating as a news organization has been surpassed by Jon Stewart’s Daily Show. Here we have Comedy Central, a real comedy network, trusted more than MSNBC, a fake comedy network posing as news.

In a bizarre interview, the Sudanese man who claimed to be Meriam Ibrahim’s brother and accused her of apostasy (becoming a Christian) at her trial tells CNN that “potions” turned her into a Christian. He also claims that she is “bewitched.”
Nevertheless, he says that “if she refuses [to recant her Christian faith and return to Islam,] she should be executed.”

National Seersucker Day comes back to Congress, thank God.
No, I am not joking about either half of that title. Today, Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) announced that National Seersucker Day has been formally reinstated. A bipartisan Capitol Hill tradition, Members of the House of Representatives typically wear Seersucker on Wednesdays and Senators wear it on Thursdays. The tradition started in 1996 by Trent Lott, and continued until 2012. That year ninnyhammers in the Senate | Read More »
