The Obamacare Throwdown – Let’s Not Be Gutless Wonders
Let me be blunt. If you are opposed to using the Continuing Resolution to de-fund Obamacare because you are afraid that conservatives and the GOP might take the blame in the media, then you are a political coward.
It’s as simple as that.

Victory: “No Atheists in Foxholes” Article Reinstated on Chaplain’s Website
Angry atheists bizarre arguments and incendiary tactics were once again exposed and soundly defeated as a military chaplain’s blog post has been reposted on a base website.
The inaptly named Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), an anti-Christian organization headed by Mikey Weinstein, makes it its mission to antagonize military chaplains for doing their duty. Weinstein has compared Christians serving in our military to al Qaeda and repeatedly refers to Christians in uniform as “monsters who terrorize.” A few weeks ago, MRFF demanded that an article detailing the historical context of the phrase “no atheists in foxholes” be removed from a military chaplain’s website.

The Gross Double Standard In Clowngate
While Clowngate rages, St. Louis City Treasurer made a racially-charged, offensive remark via Twitter about those who disagree with President Obama. Jones then spent working hours on Monday arguing with those who objected to the remark. When pressed by my staff about said remark, St. Louis City Mayor Francis Slay’s office replied that he will not comment, other than to say that Jones “is entitled | Read More »
Dana Carvey, The Rodeo Clown and The Head On A Stick
You had to feel for the poor guys over on the set of Game of Thrones. They had this scene where King Joffrey took his girlfriend Sansa on a tour of all the heads he’d recently severed,* but were short a few plastic masks to paint up as decaying cadaver heads. They couldn’t seem to locate any Jerry Brown of Arnold Schwarzenegger faces so they were forced, against their better judgment**, to use a facial likeness of President George W. Bush. It’s amazing how accidents happen. It wasn’t anything, you know, political. And who can forget how hilarious Dana Carvey used to be. “A thousand points of light!” he’d intone in his most mocking imitation of a President in the middle of his re-election campaign. But this was “comedy.” He wouldn’t do that to influence any voters, now would he? It’s all in good fun you Crazy Wingnuts, so lighten up.
Now we get to the amusing goings on over at the Missouri State Fair. It seems a rodeo clown there came up with the idea of running around in front of an angry bull wearing a Barack Obama Mask. It wasn’t hilariously funny. Better than Letterman’s jokes about A-Rod knocking up Sarah Palin’s children between HGH injections, but not on a level with vintage Dana Carvey SNL. The Left was of course tolerate and patient. They deiced to just let the lowbrows do their “Dance of The Sloping Foreheads.” It’s just comedy they reasoned. It can’t hurt anyone. Oh Wait….

No Way in Hell Will I Support Nancy Mace
People keep asking me about Nancy Mace running against Lindsey Graham. At the RedState Gathering, people wanted to know why she wasn’t on the agenda. Well, by the time it became an issue, the agenda was full, but even had it not been full I would not have asked her to speak. I have said for a while that conservatives eager to beat the establishment | Read More »

Peggy Noonan and @barackobama’s unconscious* assumption of privilege.
Peggy Noonan is quite the humorist. This is the reason many people don’t like ObamaCare. It’s also part of why people wind up making fun of the president at state fairs. (On that, everyone should breathe deep and remember, as the noted political philosopher Orson Welles once put it: “It’s the business of the American people to take the mickey out of the president.” It’s | Read More »

Congressional Outreach for Today and Tomorrow
Accountable Congress has done amazing work chronicling all the town halls and opportunities to reach out to members of Congress over August. Few groups have performed as well as them in documenting activities. They should serve as a model for every other group out there in getting this data out to Americans. It is very clear that members of Congress, regardless of party, do not | Read More »

Missouri Republicans, upset over charges of racism against Sen. John D. Ashcroft (R-Mo.), are circulating a 1960 photograph of Gov. Mel Carnahan (D) in blackface makeup performing a Kiwanis minstrel show. | Read More »
