If CNN Laughs Out Loud at The GOP Tomorrow Night—I Wouldn’t Blame Them
Remember the 2008 CNN You Tube GOP Presidential candidate debate? I do. Remember the penultimate questioner of the night? A retired military flag officer who questioned the GOP candidates about the subject of gay marraige—definately an uncomforatble subject for GOP candidates. I do. Remember how, even before the program was over!, conservatives had researched this retiree online, found out he was associated with the Hillary | Read More »
It’s important that “Atlas Shrugged” do well this weekend
We all know it’s risky to be a conservative fillmmaker or actor in Hollywood. We all want to see more conservative-friendly (or, at the very least, not-conservative-insulting) movies and TV shows. Well, one way to make that happen is to financially reward those conservative folks in Hollywood in front of the camera, behind it and paying for it. If “Atlas Shrugged” has a good opening | Read More »
I can understand Hillary dissing Fox News—but ROBERT GATES?
Is it possible that the the two most prominent Cabinet officials in the Executive Branch decided to blow off Fox News today. Is the White House playing favorites again with media outlets? There has been a back-and-forth between Fox News and the White House ever since President Barack Obama took his oath in 2009. And the latest episode appears to have occurred on Sunday after | Read More »
What would Machiavelli the Tea Partier Do In Wisconsin Today?
Today should be a glorious day for personal responsibility and public sanity in Wisconsin. Yes, the Tea Party cavalry will ride into Madison. I doubt there will be many union counter-protesters…they’re not getting paid to protest today, like they were this week by being “sick.” So, the Tea Partiers should have the streets largely to themselves. If I were Machiavelli, and I were a Tea | Read More »
Does Keith Olbermann write logic textbooks for Pima County’s community colleges?
If Fox News is a propaganda machine, then it misleads its viewers. Fox News is a propaganda machine. Therefore, Fox News misleads its viewers. If you are a student in Pima Community College this year (southern Arizona, whose major city is Tucson), you’ll see this argument listed as an example of a hypothetical syllogism. (A syllogism having a conditional statement for one or both of | Read More »
Art Jacobson, TucsonCitizen.com blogger, furthers meme that Tea Party is to blame for Gifford’s shooting
Okay, here we go: Follow this link to “The Data Port”, written by Art Jacobson, a TucsonCitizen.com blogger. Art is a thoughtful guy, but very liberal. Unfortunately, he has posted a link to and an excerpt from Joan Walsh’s Salon column, a column that implies that Tea Party rhetoric led to Giffords’ shooting. Art made no rebuttal to what Walsh said. I’m presuming that Art | Read More »
LOTS of new Democratic Voters Show up in AZ—What A Coinky-Dink!
This is an unsurprising development in the southern Arizona congressional races—CD7 (McClung V Grijalva) and CD8 (Giffords V Kelly). I realize this may not qualify as original research, but I wanted to make sure people knew about this. The Yuma Sun is reporting that two organizations — Mi Familia Vota and One Vote Arizona — submitted more than 3000 voter registrations in Yuma County, and | Read More »
Ruth McClung Targeted By Brand New TucsonCitizen.com Blog
“Tucson Progressive” is one of the newest citizen bloggers that’s been added to TucsonCitizen.com. She’s only been on the “air” less than two weeks, and already she’s picked out a prime target—Ruth McClung. What a coinky-dink. Ruth McClung starts making serious inroads against Raul Grijalva, in a district designed to favor a Democrat—and a new blogger pops up and starts unloading on her. In the | Read More »
Calling on all conservative commenters—send some help to Tucson and “Fort Buckley”
Greetings, Redstaters—smagar here. Some of y’all are aware that I run the “Fort Buckley” blog on TucsonCitizen.com. I think of it as a conservative outpost in liberal country. (Tucson is a pocket of blue in an otherwise very red state). TucsonCitizen.com (or TC.com) is an online reincarnation of the old Tucson Citizen newspaper, which folded nearly two years ago. The new online version offers a | Read More »
Wait—I thought Republicans HATED Latinos? Apparently NM didn’t get Dolores Huerta’s memo…
Looks as if the Land of Enchantment might elect a—GASP—Hispanic Republican governor! Republican gubernatorial candidate Susana Martinez’s lead over Democrat Diane Denish has grown to 10 points, and Martinez has also reached the all-important 50 percent threshold, according to a new poll conducted for her campaign. The poll, conducted Sept. 11-13, had Martinez leading 50 percent to 40 percent. The survey of 600 likely voters | Read More »
The possible “Tea Party Express” path to a filibuster-proof Senate…in 2013?
I can’t imagine Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint and the Tea Party Express are indifferent to the Senate. More to the point, I’m presuming that they, like most of the rest of us, recognize the need to have a filibuster-proof Senate at some point in the near-future, in order to REPEAL Obamacare. So, if Sarah Palin and Jim DeMint and the Tea Party Express are willing | Read More »
Jay Cost on the DE GOP Senate Primary: If you want to repeal Obamacare in the future, vote for Mike Castle now.
Jay Cost, who came to my attention when he started blogging at Real Clear Politics, is IMO one of the clearest and deepest thinkers on the nuts-and-bolts of politics on the street today. Check out his “Horse Race” blog, and you’ll see what I mean. Jay now blogs at Weekly Standard; from there he weighed in on the Castle/O’Donnell race in DE. He sides with | Read More »
Arizona Democrats are playing in the CD8 GOP primary—AGAIN!
In the summer of 2006, I was surprised to see the Democrats running TV ads…in the GOP primary. The ads targeted a candidate (whose name escapes me and Google can’t find) who was the GOP’s preferred successor for the retiring Jim Kolbe. Perhaps those Democratic ads in a GOP primary helped: the targeted candidate lost the primary. The primary winner, Randy Graf, turned off enough | Read More »
Didn’t J. Christian Adams RESIGN HIS JOB over the New Black Panther controversey?
If so could someone please tell Andrew Alexander, the WaPo’s ombundsman? If someone takes the major step of giving up their job, so that they can speak out on an issue, I’d think that gives that person at least some measure of credibility, don’t you think? So, shouldn’t you mention that when you’re raising questions about someone’s credibility. To the whole online world?
Ammo For The Activist: Take Back the House, So We Can Investigate the Gulf Cleanup Failures
Paul Rubin’s WSJ Op-Ed proposes some damning answers to one of the summer’s Biggest Questions: Why is the Gulf oil cleanup taking so long? As you’ll see, the reasons for the delay relate directly to Democratic Party policy and interest group preferences. And the people, wildlife, waters and fauna of the Gulf are paying the price. Someone should investigate. With the current Democratic administration and | Read More »
THIS is objective reporting? MSM, is that what you think? Is that what you expect us to think?
If so, you’re stupid stupid stupid. (Emphasis added) Palin headlines Va. rally alongside Allen, North Associated Press 06/27/10 10:05 AM EDT NORFOLK, VA. — Sarah Palin is speaking at a Norfolk rally for conservatives, with two heroes of Virginia’s Republican right serving as warm-up acts. The former John McCain running mate who bailed as Alaska’s governor to prosper politically and financially on the talk circuit | Read More »
If Palin is warming up to Kathleen Parker, that move is a bit too cute for me
Apparently, the Palins are now reaching out to Kathleen Parker. If they are…well, thanks for nothing, Sarah. Y’all remember Kathleen Parker? The conservative columnist who, in the middle of the 2008 Presidential campaign made a oh-so-noble-but-totally-implausible call for Sarah Palin to drop out of the race—again, right in the middle of it!—because she wasn’t qualified. Palin was supposed to say that she’d decided to spend | Read More »
“Glee” just showed us how prescient John Nolte really is
Nolte, the editor-in-chief of Breitbart’s Big Hollywood blog, is one of the harshest critics of Hollywood for its liberal bias. One thing Nolte really dings Tinseltown for: the cheap anti-conservative shots spread throughout TV and movie scripts. You’re sitting there, watching a movie, having a good time losing youself in the story line and enjoying the characters when BAM! Some character makes a cheap, uncalled-for | Read More »
Ace is right: give no charity to people who don’t deserve it
I got a chuckle out of this story on Gateway Pundit, which made it appear that President Obama needed a teleprompter to address an elementary school class. Ace of Spades—the place where I saw the story originally—posted a clarification…as well as a retort that I think we should use, over and over again in the months ahead. Update: Apparently the teleprompter was set up for | Read More »
Does anyone know if Brown has poll watchers lined up for Tuesday?
A great, great movie is Martin Scorcese’s Gangs of New York, a story about 19th-century New York City. I’m reminded of Boss Tweed’s bit of wisdom from the movie—it doesn’t matter how many people vote, what matters is who counts the votes. I’m guessing (fearing, actually) that it will be mostly Democrats counting the votes on Tuesday. And checking voter IDs (if they even do | Read More »
