We’re Wasting a Safe Senate Seat on This Guy?
How do you take a state Romney carried by 23 points with 116 of 120 counties and turn it into a dead heat? Ask Mitch McConnell. Kentuckians are not happy with Obama. Amidst the war on coal, even 40% of Democrats voted against Obama in the presidential primary. They overwhelmingly supported Romney in the presidential election, even though his persona was not exactly a great | Read More »
Finger Lickin’ Frauds
John Cornyn went on radio yesterday with Chad Hasty (on twitter: @chadhastyradio) on Lubbock’s NewsTalk 790 AM KFYO. When asked why he took his name off Mike Lee’s letter about defunding Obamacare, John Cornyn said he did so because of a Congressional Research Service report on the implication of Mike Lee’s strategy.There’s just one problem.

We had been online four years at that point.To my surprise, several hundred said yes. So we met in Atlanta five years ago this weekend. The first weekend in August ever since we have met.

The godless Take a Plunge into the Bizarre
The Freedom From Religion Foundation’s newest target (using their renewed infamy to delve deeper into the bizarre) are quotes from famous people. That’s right. Abraham Lincoln shouldn’t have mentioned God in his speeches. Thomas Jefferson’s lauded quotations need to be whitewashed of their religious references.

Should Matt Lewis Stop Making His Titles Questions?
Matt Lewis thinks conservatives should not primary Mitch McConnell. His title asks the question, “Should conservatives try to oust Mitch McConnell?” instead of giving his answer “No, Conservatives Should Not Primary Mitch McConnell.”I guess this is for page views.In any event, Matt thinks conservatives should leave Mitch McConnell alone and instead help guys like Tom Cotton run against a Democrat in Arkansas.

Almost every American family was dramatically affected by the Revolutionary War, Civil War, and World War II. Yet, despite their enormous sacrifice, the past few generations have diminished the greatness | Read More »
