Presidential prospects of Gov. Christie stuck in BridgeGate traffic jam
A new Quinnipiac University poll finds that in the wake of Christie administration’s political bulling, New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie’s 2016 presidential prospects are down.

Real Feminism Vs. Realpolitik in Texas
Wendy Davis needs a man like a fish needs a rich bicycle that will pay its way through fish law school and take full custody of its spawn.
(HT: Exjon via Instatpundit.)
Hard luck stories provide emotional cover to incompetent fools. These are the type of bad, faithless people who should not be elected to any office greater than being a local dog-catcher. We discover that as people have begun to delve into the tear-jerking reproduction of Les Miserables being presented as a Curriculum Vita by Texas Gubernatorial Candidate Wendy Davis. The good news story here is that we learn of these inconvenient truths about poor Wendy Davis before she gets empowered to make any important decisions. After all, it probably isn’t wisdom to entrust great power to somebody because you feel sorry for them.

Jerry Cannon (D CAND, Michigan-01 PRI) claims he has an evil twin who hates #Obamacare.
And it’s an evil twin who apparently answers Jerry Cannon’s cell phone. Confused? Yeah, well, so is everybody else: Something funny seems to be going on in a Michigan congressional race. Either a Democratic candidate with national-party backing, challenging Republican incumbent Dan Benishek, has an impersonator with access to his cell phone, or his campaign is pressuring a local paper to edit his quotes.

Tech at Night: Anarchists get caned. Edward Snowden loses on Metadata.
What’s better than anarchists getting arrested for spreading terrorists slogans, including threats? Anarchists getting arrested and caned for the same.
Speaking of people who need arrested, even as Kim Dotcom continues his war on copyright, he’s also going to get into politics in New Zealand. I think we can guess the sole platform element of his party: DO NOT EXTRADITE KIM DOTCOM TO AMERICA.

Groups like Senate Conservatives’ Fund and Madison Project (my day-job employer) pointed out that Lankford has gone along with the establishment leadership in the House on a number of critical votes and that he’d offer more of the same in the Senate.

If you like your concealed-carry permit, you can keep it
There’s a good reason people are growing nervous about the huge amount of information our government is amassing on its citizens. The strange story of John Filippidis should put a chill in the hearts of everyone concerned about protecting their Constitutional rights, especially their gun rights.

The full story has a lot of good information in it, but the lede really says | Read More »

Certain corners of the Internet have been outraged about The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Peter Jackson’s second movie of three based on the book by J. R. R. Tolkien. Most notably, the author’s son Christopher claims the movie ‘eviscerated’ the book. The truth is though, that Peter Jackson had two mutually exclusive goals to set for these movies.
