From the Mail Bag
From: Sidney Stern “firstname.lastname@example.org” Subject: Eric Ericsson Mark Sanford Date: February 18, 2013 4:38:58 PM EST To: “email@example.com” One weasly, smarmy, pathetic little hateful man, backing another conservative Hippocrate. Every little right wing Hippocrate gets as many new chances as they need, by just saying God forgives me, and the flock buys in. So Pathetic, but so predictable for people who have no thought process. | Read More »

Karl Rove Concedes To Tea Party, Finally Approves Of Rand Paul
Karl Rove would have you believe that he’s been a lifelong Rand Paul supporter. Rove recently opined that the party needs “fewer Christine O’Donnells and more Rand Pauls.” I distinctly remember Karl Rove’s dislike of Rand Paul during Kentucky’s senate primary. My emphasis: Republicans have also recruited good candidates for their open seats. New Hampshire Attorney General Kelly Ayotte is competitive, as are Ohio’s Rob Portman and | Read More »

Politico’s Emily Schulteis Misses a Few Key Details About Bobby Jindal
Politico reporter Emily Schulteis proves today why journalism is a dying and biased industry. She bought the spin of a Louisiana political hack who actually worked for Kathleen Blanco – a politician Jindal ran against and practically forced out of office. In fact, in quoting Bob Mann, Schulteis never even mentioned that his former boss, Kathleen Blanco, was driven from office by the looming Jindal | Read More »

Ted Cruz: The Paradigm Shift We Need
If a man is judged by the quality of his enemies, Ted Cruz should be a national hero. Over the past few days, The New York Times and Politico have run stories describing Cruz’s first 6 weeks in office as combative and McCarthy-like by his enemies. Let us use this as an opportunity to take a victory lap for helping to elect this great patriot. | Read More »
NYT upset about attacks on Bob Menendez. But they want him gone, too.
I have to agree with Hot Air Headlines, here: the New York Times seems more upset that a bunch of Republican and right-leaning groups have gotten Senator Bob Menendez (D, NJ) in trouble over his various and sundry shenanigans than it is in the shenanigans themselves. “We’ve never sent a Democrat to jail,” said Ken Boehm, the chairman of the group, the National Legal and | Read More »
