Lena Dunham, who recently revealed acting as a “sexual predator” towards her younger sister in her book, Not That Kind of Girl, is set to make the children’s book Catherine, Called Birdy, into a film. The book, written in 1994 by Karen Cushman, tells the story of Birdy, a 14 year old girl living in Medieval times, whose father is intent on her marrying a suitor of his choosing.

You can’t involve yourself in long-term shameless, unprincipled pandering to a group unless you have a pretty sizeable amount of contempt for that group, and that is especially true of Democrats with women. The Democrats have now run two consecutive election cycles almost exclusively on opposing a completely fictional Republican “war on women.” Unfortunately, they haven’t got the foggiest conception of what that should entail | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss the economic issues facing the voters this election, how it may impact their choice at the polls and what economic reforms the GOP should make should they control Capitol Hill.
Here in my home state of Tennessee, there’s not much of interest statewide on the ballot. Incumbent Republican governor Bill Haslam and Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN)35% are expected to cruise to easy victories. None of the U.S. House races are expected to generate any huge surprises. Even most of the state legislature races are comparatively quiet. But there are still important | Read More »
When Democrats start to lose power, they start to show you who they really ar. Like totalitarian despots ordering the razing of the city as the peasants take up arm, Democrats have no real use for democracy unless it serves their purposes. The New York Times reminds us of this again. Two of their op-ed contributors want the midterm elections cancelled. Mind you, they were | Read More »
Voters around the country will head into Election Day prepared to end their love affair with Barack Obama. Republicans should be cautious in how they interpret the voters’ mixed signals. First, it is important to understand the president’s delusions. A series of reports have come out that the White House believes Democrats should embrace the president. Never mind that only a month ago White House | Read More »
Unsurprising… Rock The Vote released a public service announcement last month with a parody of Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” that featured public figures who explained why they planned to vote in the midterm elections, but according to public records, a number of them didn’t vote in the last midterm election. At least five who appeared in the PSA — “Girls” actress Lena Dunham, | Read More »

In proving that Godwin’s Law applies to struggling Democrat campaigns just like it applies to the Internet, the Mary Burke campaign has decided to flash some swastikas in some ads that are encouraging people to vote for Mary Burke. Here is the ad in question, and it’s just as ridiculous as you might think it would be: Here’s the basic gist of the | Read More »
Nate Cohn, writing in the New York Times, did his best to put some lipstick on a pig yesterday by suggesting that the impending Republican victory (which he has been busily trying to suggest will not happen) isn’t really bad news for Democrats at all. Cohn’s article is fairly typical of the completely evidence-free wishful thinking I recall our side engaging in during the latter | Read More »
I’m going to admit you into my circle of trust here, by telling you a secret. A Secret of the First Order, like the Unified Field Theory, the God Particle, or the Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything. Ready?
Put another way: “Ladies and gentlemen, please fasten your safety belts and put your tray tables back up into the full, upright position. We are beginning our final approach: our estimated touch-down time will be 72 hours.” Seriously, folks: this is the home stretch for the elections. The polls are highly unlikely to be anything except chaotic noise at this point; the fundamentals of the various races | Read More »
The Liberal Willie Horton Ads Alex Wagner of MSNBC is very happy to see Americans hate one another far more if it helps the Democratic Party win elections more often. Here we see the Lovely and Talented Alex Wagner toting the advantages Democrats gain from accusing Republican Candidates of wanting to shoot more Trayvons and burn more places just like Ferguson, | Read More »
In the classic 1950 Japanese film, Rashomon, Akira Kurosawa tells the story of a crime as seen through the eyes of participants and witnesses, preventing the viewer with a very different interpretation of events. We are seeing much the same in descriptions of what the 2014 elections mean. These descriptions are all predicated on the assumption that the GOP will retain a majority in the | Read More »
