One of the more entertaining traits of liberals is their unflinching desire to Balkanize the United States into a loose amalgam of racial and ethnic grievance groups. Unhappy with the existence of only two sexes, liberals have now created “sexual orientation” so that the psychologically disordered can be celebrated. Probably nowhere is this more rigorously advocated than in K-12 education where liberals dominate the institutions | Read More »
Over at the Weekly Standard,,Maria Santos asks, “Can You Spot the Differences” among the seven Republicans running to replace retiring Rep. Spencer Baucus in Alabama’s sixth congressional district. According to Santos, Debates between the candidates “barely matter” because the candidates “support essentially the same things” and “even recite many of the same tropes.” That may be, but as we pointed out last month there are | Read More »

Yesterday brought the announcement that a handful of corrupt Ohio Democrats had been indicted for being, well, corrupt. And it also brought us another energetic round of “Name That Party,” a parlor game in which a corrupt official is arrested or indicted and we, the contestants, try to find a hint of which party to which they belong.

This looks like a question that must now be asked. First, it looks like Pat Roberts, the NRSC’s candidate in Kansas turns out to be a Virginia resident. But this question must be asked, in particular, about Thad Cochran, the NRSC’s candidate in Mississippi. I should stop and say it is also worth asking because anytime a conservative the NRSC does not support does something | Read More »
The New York Times paid its editor, Jill Abramson, less than the prior editor. She raised the issue. A few weeks later she was fired.
