Mark Udall, Among Other Incumbent Democrats, Wants To Distance Himself From Obama. And I Can’t Blame Him
As I am sure most of you know by now, Mark Udall jumped through hoops, ducked, dived, and down right evaded questions from CNN’s Dana Bash on whether he would want President Obama to campaign with him in Colorado for the 2014 midterm elections. I must admit, Udall was masterful in his ability to not answer a simple yes or no question. Admittedly this is | Read More »
Mark Murray Was Right. Just Not How He Meant It.
I have long thought that most members of the Washington Press Corps go home at night to a cardboard box full of wine and lip print stained press clippings of Barack Obama. Mark Murray, the senior political editor for NBC News, reinforces that image.After the State of the Union address on Tuesday night, Mark Murray tweeted: Obama’s ending on Remsburg wasn’t just a story about | Read More »
RS Interview: Rep. Tom Cotton (R CAND, Arkansas Senate).
Arkansas, of course, is prime pickup territory for the GOP these days: incumbent Democrat Mark Pryor is considered to be in serious trouble by… well, pretty much everybody and it’s just not a good cycle for Democrats in general. We talked to increasingly-likely Republican candidate Rep. Tom Cotton earlier today about the race, and what he plans to do to win it: Rep. Cotton’s site | Read More »
Open Thread: Everything is a Metaphor
In closing out the State of the Union address President Obama told a story about a hero, a combat veteran who served proudly during 10 tours and was nearly killed in that service. His name is Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg Obviously this was all a metaphor about Obama growing up in Hawaii, attending Harvard, eventually becoming President of the United States, and the myriad | Read More »
Small Businesses Don’t Add Jobs Because Government Makes Doing So Stupid.
Monday, I paid a couple of hundred dollars to the Internal Revenue Service for a penalty on a penalty that in turn by law I should never have been assessed. I employ myself, one full-time secretary, and one part-time paralegal (part-time because my health insurance company requires that I give every employee with over 20 hours of work per week insurance because they want a | Read More »
Radio is Awesome
Just wanted to share. I really am blessed and I thank you all for your prayers and encouragement. I just got off the radio, having gotten behind the microphone at 4pm yesterday afternoon. Weather and traffic in Atlanta are horrible. As I was signing off at 4 am, there were still thousands of people stranded on the road unable to get home. Many of them | Read More »

The Surprising Adventures of Baron Obamahausen
Sitting in Middle Georgia tonight, the snow poured down muting all the sounds outside. I did not watch the President’s State of the Union. I read the transcript. I had read — not skimmed it — before the President had even gotten to “My fellow Americans.”I smelled an awful stench as I read through the speech. At first I thought the speech must be in | Read More »
The Tea Party Response to the State of the Union
Mike Lee has the honor of delivering the Tea Party response to the State of the Union tonight. It’ll be far better than the Republican one, I assure you of that.You can watch it right here at RedState too.
My Fellow Americans . . .
The President of the United States will address a joint session of the United States Congress tonight at 9:00 p.m. I am not sure any of us even need to watch it. Most of us read Das Kapital in school. Consider this an open thread.
Hiding Behind Euphemisms and Terms
The response to my thank you note to Greta Van Susteren has been a fascinating study in the comfort people take behind euphemisms and terms.”Outrageous,” “graphic,” “over the top,” and “hyperbolic” have all been used today to describe my thank you. Why? Because instead of using the word “abortion” to describe that which Wendy Davis supports, I actually explained what that procedure is.Good luck trying | Read More »

Leave Us Alone
Tonight, Barack Obama will stand before the Parliament of Whores in Washington, D.C. with Chuckles and the Orange Man behind him and, in more ways than one, say, “Ask now what you can do for your government, but rather ask what your government can do for you.” You know what the government can do for me? Leave me the hell alone. They can’t get us | Read More »
A Very Sincere Thank You to @Gretawire
Greta Van Sustern wishes you to know I’m a creepy jerk. She does not know who I am and thinks no one should listen to me. I appreciate her letting someone she’s never heard of who she thinks should not be listened to live rent free in her head.But I must sincerely thank her.Wendy Davis believes it is perfectly acceptable to crack open a child’s | Read More »
