David Frum: Forget McCain; save the Senate for the GOP
From Allahpundit over at Hot Air. There are many ways to lose a presidential election. John McCain is losing in a way that threatens to take the entire Republican Party down with him. Here’s the link to Frum’s article in the Washington Post. The Post, FYI, just ran an article by another conservative refusenik, Kathleen Parker, this past Friday. Funny, but I don’t recall the | Read More »
Is the Obama campaign enabling credit-card fraud?
This Powerline story seems big to me—is it? Is the Obama campaign knowingly receiving illegal contributions? Yesterday one of our readers reported the results of an experiment he conducted. Read on From “Who is John Galt” I’ve read recent reports of the Obama campaign receiving donations from dubious names and foreign locales and it got me wondering: How is this possible? I run a small | Read More »
I’ve figured out what Kathleen Parker’s up to!
You know—the conservative anthropologist, who comes on camera frequently to explain to CNN’s on-air talent the behavior of these peculiar species known as “conservatives” or “Republicans.” David Gergen is getting stale—time for a fresh, new face up there! I can almost hear the National Geographic theme music in the background. Read on… In today’s Powerline John Hindraker calls for conservatives to expand the parallel media | Read More »
Have the social conservatives quit?
I have to conclude that the social conservatives have quit. Politically, that is, for the 2008 election. Is that right? Am I missing something? Here’s why I say that. 1) Colorado—home of Focus on the Family—appears to be heading Democrat this year. That leads me to presume one of two things: a) The social conservatives in Colorado lack the strength to swing the state to | Read More »
Memo to the American Jewish Community: If you want to make amends…
I, for one, tire of the many snubs the American Jewish community routinely throws at Republicans, conservatives and evangelical Christians. If my ethnic and spiritual homeland had the nickname of being the “one-bomb” state, I’d think twice about snubbing the allies I did have. I, for one, consider the rude disinviting of Sarah Palin one more in a long line of snubs. If the American | Read More »
If we can’t sing Heart’s “Barracuda,” then let’s build…er write our own!
I remember a story about why Wal-Mart created its own soft drink brands. As the story went, Pepsi and Coca-Cola tried to gouge Sam Walton. Sam responded by making his own soft-drink brand for sale at Wal-Marts. If Hasbeen…er, Heart won’t let the GOP use their song titled “Barracuda,” then fine. We can write our own. Read on We have John Rich, of Big and | Read More »
One more reason to walk away from the Washington Post:
Many of us savored last night’s NFL Hall of Fame induction. For thousands in Canton, and millions around the DC area and the world, time slowed down a bit last night as we watched Darrell Green and Art Monk enter the Hall of Fame. This morning, I went to washingtonpost.com to continue savoring the moment. It appears I’ll have to go elsewhere. The powers-that-be at | Read More »
Kirsten Powers embarasses herself in today’s NYPost
In this article in today’s NYPost, Democrat Kirsten Powers calls the netroots “dumb” for obsessing on FISA. She opens her critique with this paragraph: ASK passers-by on any street in America what their top issue is for the upcoming presidential election, and they’ll all answer the same thing: the Foreign Service Intelligence Act. Powers complains about the “extreme lack of self-awareness on left-wing activists’ part.” | Read More »
