Science Breakthrough!! Men and women choose mates differently
Science. Do we love it or what? Men’s and women’s ideas of the perfect mate differ significantly due to evolutionary pressures, according to a cross-cultural study on multiple mate preferences by psychologists at The University of Texas at Austin. The study of 4,764 men and 5,389 women in 33 countries and 37 cultures showed that sex differences in mate preferences are much larger than previously | Read More »

Understanding the Vichy Republicans
Yesterday, I wrote that McConnell’s pre-emptive surrender on the Planned Parenthood defunding fight in order to maintain peace with the Democrats made him equivalent to a modern day Neville Chamberlain. With the news that McConnell is actively engaging Democrats in a joint effort to defeat the defunding fight and avoid the showdown, it is apparent that the more apt historical parallel is actually Philippe Pétain, leader | Read More »
You’d Have Thought Me a Conspiracy Theorist
If I told you in 2008 that Barack Obama would negotiate a deal that he acknowledges will fund terrorism, you’d have thought me a conspiracy theorist. If I told you in 2008 that Barack Obama would lecture Christians on the crusades and call a growing army of Islamic radicals “junior varsity,” you’d have thought me a conspiracy theorist. If I told you in 2008 that | Read More »
In Which Jim Galloway Needs To Learn The Google
This afternoon, our fearless leader, Erick Erickson, appeared at the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission’s National Conference. Erick was a part of a panel discussion hosted by Russell Moore, the president of the ERLC (and author of what appears to be an excellent new book titled “Onward: Engaging the Culture Without Losing the Gospel”).

George Allen, Macaca, and The Infantile Hypocrisy of the “Heavily Edited” Defense
Ask any leftist to defend the monstrosities that are contained on the Center for Medical Progress videos about Planned Parenthood, and they will immediately retort that the videos are “heavily edited.” Go on, I dare you to try it and find a liberal who doesn’t immediately leap to that canard. It cannot be done, for they know nothing else to even say about the damning | Read More »
Heb, Jillary and the Billionaire Straddle
Democracy can be a nasty business risk. It has to be managed. You can manage a risk in four ways. You can assume it, avoid it, transfer it or mitigate it*. A business leader assumes risk by remaining politically neutral. They avoid it by not doing business in ways potentially impacted by political meddling. They transfer it by selling assets or industries that are impacted | Read More »
Barack Obama uses wit and charm to woo Iran agreement critics
If you ever had any doubt about how small, petty and inconsequential a man was Barack Hussein Obama, let that doubt be dispelled after the small-minded, petulant defense of his surrender to Iran. Instead of a sales pitch, an appeal to bipartisan harmony of the type sought by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% when being furiously buggered by [mc_name name=’Sen. Harry Reid | Read More »
The August Recess and the Planned Parenthood Fight
Conservatives need to treat the 2015 August recess the way they treated the 2009 recess. In 2009, conservatives overwhelmed townhall meetings to demand opposition to Obamacare. This year, conservatives need to get out in force and demand Congress defund Planned Parenthood, even if it means a government shutdown. You need to show up in force because all lives matter, even those of children in the | Read More »

Hey, GOP, Governing Is Not Surrender
Hanlon’s Razor states: Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity. Ben Domenech has a must read in today’s Transom that highlights this and dovetails with Leon’s excellent takedown/analysis of the current iteration of Failure Theater the Senate, under Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54%‘s flaccid leadership, has performed on the Planned Parenthood scandal. “They don’t give a damn about governing.” | Read More »

Mitch McConnell Promises “Peace in Our Time”
Butchers are killing unborn children and selling their parts for money and your tax dollars are going to the company that employs them. Not to worry, though, John Cornyn is not going to let this interfere with the Senate calendar, and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% is not going to let it inconvenience the operation of optional government services: Senate Majority Leader [mc_name | Read More »
THE DONALD Is No Longer A Risk. He Is An Issue.
If you ever attempt to manage anything complicated you will have to figure out what to do about risks. Risks can be roughly defined as things that could go wrong and give you a problem. Once they do go wrong, they become issues. Then you have a problem on your hands. The political leadership of the GOP has failed at risk management. They now have | Read More »
