Ammo for the activist: Wikipedia’s climate entries shaped by…A Green Party activist!
Greetings Redstate Activist. Looking for just the right Christmas present for that earnest, naive voter who fears that Earth is overheating, due to the evil pollutants created by capitalism and the breath of Dick Cheney? Courtesy of Canada’s Financial Times, I have just the thing: an eye-opening expose. What’s the most widely-used reference source today, especially among tech-savvy young people? Wikipedia of course. So, if | Read More »
Once again, we conservatives get kicked in the teeth
Rush Limbaugh got treated unfairly, because no one—the NFL, the media—feel they have an obligation to treat him fairly. If you’re on CNN, what’s the downside of lying about Rush Limbaugh’s quotes? A tut-tutting critique by The Cleaner Howard Kurtz on Reliable Sources? After which, it’s all forgotten because The Word is out among the chattering class to drop it and move on. Sadly, I | Read More »
Chris Muir’s Present To David Axelrod, Chris Matthews and TPM…
…the image of John Boehner as a shameless junketeer. Why is this bad? I can think of two ways, off the top of my head: 1) Very few people know John Boehner, and even fewer have yet to form an opinion of him. 2) If the House GOP hopes to make significant gains in 2010, it will need a leader the public thinks it can | Read More »
Why can GOP staffers respond to Redstaters’ comments on their bosses’ front page stories here?
Ref. mbecker’s RedHot today about GOP leaders’ drive-by/drive-away-and-don’t-look-back postings here…I agree to some extent with mbecker. Sorry for not putting this in the comments section of the appropriate Redhot diaries—those comments are closed (for now). I certainly want the leadership to keep posting here. That adds value to this site, and it gives us a chance to respond directly to GOP leadership’s thoughts and opinions. | Read More »
To what extent does Palin have to pay those legal bills herself?
From what I can tell, Palin’s legal bills stemming from this incessant stream of ethics charges are over half a million dollars. If she has to pay those bills herself, instead of the state of Alaska, IMO that’s reason enough to quit. So, in the interest of helping to focus the discussion, what’s the answer to this question: Is Sarah Palin personally responsible for seeing | Read More »
Submit your suggestions—what evidence can we cite for WaPo’s pro-Obama bias
Ever watch Veggie Tales? Sure you have. Especially if you have kids. On one of the show’s episodes, in which Larry the Cucumber plays Sherlock Holmes and Bob the Tomato plays Dr. Watson, two other vegetables play the roles of London constables guarding a crime scene. Whenever Holmes and Watson try to approach the crime scene, those “constables” always say “Move along…nothing to see here.” | Read More »
GO MOE, GO!!!! Let the thing be pressed
Sorry, this will be short—but you posted your bit about Politico’s attempt to whitewash Playboy’s you-know-what list in a Redhot. This is really a comment…but you can’t comment in Redhots. So…anyhoo. I am so VERY glad that you don’t plan to let this drop. Enough is enough. If we stand here and let them slap our faces, and all we do is turn the other | Read More »
What say you: Is electing Rubio in FL worth losing a GOP Senate seat elsewhere?
Over the past week, I’m sure that many of you have seen me take Senator Cornyn’s side in the Crist-Rubio endorsement debate. Specifically, I’ve pointed out the difficult questions that Cornyn must tackle, given, (a) his specific responsibilities as NRSC chair and (b) the overwhelming constraints he faces leading a 40-seat GOP coalition. I’m disappointed that, IMO of course, many Redstaters seem to be ignoring | Read More »
MSM—Pelosi has put you on the clock…what will you do?
I have to give it to CNN, for once. Last night they gave a pretty good smackdown to the Speaker and her Mini-Me trio (Hoyer, VanHollen and that other underling) who played the role of Motion to her Denny Terrio in that faux press conference she staged. The real question is…MSM, will you do what the Speaker wants and drop it? Or, will you do | Read More »
Are NYCers worth fighting for? Sometimes, ya gotta wonder…
Because of the anti-terror campaign George Bush and Dick Cheney waged after 9/11, New York City residents (and the tri-state area surrounding it) were spared a repeat of the horror they went through that awful September day. No repeats of the months-long series of funerals, day in and day out. No need to once again sift through mountains of rubble and dust to look for | Read More »
How many Redstaters will be at the GI Film Festival?
It’s in Washington DC, the weekend of 16 and 17 May. Perhaps some of us can meet up?
Are Axelrod and Emmanuel planning to distract us—by throwing us Murtha to eat?
Have you noticed that CNN has shown a lot of interest in John Murtha’s porkbarreling recently? Wasn’t Murtha contemplating retirement one or two election cycles ago? Isn’t it likely that he’ll leave the Congress within a few years anyway? Isn’t his district pretty safe for the Dems? I.e., if Murtha turns out to be too toxic to keep around, isn’t it a pretty safe bet | Read More »
If you want to know why al Qaeda lost in IZ and AF…
it’s because they thought that all American men were like THIS guy ,Jeff Zezelny (sp?—but, who really cares?) of the New York Times. Mr. President, in your first 100 days, what has surprised you the most, enchanted you the most, humbled you the most and troubled you the most? enchanted you the most? Was this a presidential press conference, or a prime-time episode of Dr. | Read More »
How will Axelrod neutralize the Tea Party movement? By playing left tackle
(Apologies in advance to all left-handed quarterbacks. For you, please mentally substitute “right tackle” for “left tackle” as you read). On Wednesday, the Tea Party Movement will make its biggest splash to date. David Axelrod and his team know they can’t stop it. They can’t destroy it. So, what CAN they do. Neutralize it. How will they do that? Make the Tea Party organizers feel | Read More »
Keep talking about Obama’s bow to the Saudi King
We need to keep talking about it. And talking about it. And talking about it. The media wants to drop it. They don’t see it as a big deal. For us, when we see the American flag, our eyes well with tears of pride. For today’s typical MSM reporter, the sight of our flag makes his eyes roll in disdain. The president of the US | Read More »
Should Dick Cheney be quiet? No, No and No again
I won’t put links in this diary, because I’m pretty sure most of the regular readers of this blog know what I’m referring to: an article in The Hill which said that some House Republicans want Dick Cheney to mute his critcism of the Obama administration. Their concern: Cheney is so unpopular that his image drags down the image of the Republican Party nationwide. I | Read More »
Another plank for the GOP 2010 platform: We will NOT disregard the Constitution
Remember the Dems’ plan to give DC a voting seat in the House? One of the many objections raised to that—the US Constitution doesn’t allow for that. Now,Powerline points out another interesting tidbit of Democratic Party respect for our Constitution: an article that points out that the provision in Porkulus that allows state legislators to bypass their governor and accept Porkulus money is most likely | Read More »
Jackson Diehl abuses his responsibility as an MSM leading voice
The Deputy Editor of the Washington Post editorial page—i.e., the section of the paper that speaks FOR the WaPo—uses this column to further misperceptions about the real threat Afghanistan posed to us after 9/11. The man surely knows better. I mean, after all, he is a leader on the editorial page of the signature newspaper in the capitol of the world’s only hegemon. He can’t be | Read More »
Rush—invite David Frum on your show
Obviously, the Dems are looking for ways to divide the Republicans, so we can’t mount an effective response to Obamanomics, Obama health care, Obama…well, everything. In the Army, we call this a “spoiling attack.” You attack your enemy, but your goal is NOT to destroy or even defeat him with one blow. Your goal is to disrupt him so much that he can’t effectively attack | Read More »
The clock is ticking on Porkulus—what can we, and the GOP Congress, do? OPEN THREAD
In the interest of using this site to generate ideas that motivated people—i.e., us—can execute, I hereby start this diary entry. Contributors/Moderators—feel free to override this with an article of your own.
