The American Political Press’s Psycho Moment
I was too hard on Chuck Todd in my earlier post. I apologize to him for it. My point was not to brow beat Chuck Todd, but many people took it as such. I have to conclude I failed to convey the extent of my point because in focusing as I did on Chuck Todd and his remark, I overshadowed the substance of his remark. | Read More »
Joe Walsh For Congress
Congressman Joe Walsh (IL-08) is the real deal. He is a true conservative of principle. And he will not back down. He not just votes right on these issues, as a freshman member of Congress he has led on numerous Conservative priorities including leading our balanced Budget Amendment fight. Yes there are other Conservative Members like Joe who fight the good fight, and fortunately for | Read More »
If The Election Were Held Today, Mitt Romney Would Win
Just under a month ago, I noted to much criticism that were the election held that day Mitt Romney would lose. The right did not like it, but it was the simple truth. At the time, Romney was flailing about badly without a coherent message. I wrote that he could turn it around, but at that time he had not. Well, who knew Mitt Romney’s | Read More »
Does Obamacare Cover Butt-Kickings?
Ouch. I don’t know how there can still be undecideds out there, but after debate #1, I think there are less of you.

Beating an Empty Chair
We’ve all been critical of Mitt Romney from the beginning of the primary and throughout the general election for his lack of core principles, pale-pastel ideas, flaccid attacks on Obama, and lack of specifics. I have not shied away from pointing out that the Romney convention along with his acceptance speech was a disaster. So what about his debate performance? To paraphrase Michele Obama, this | Read More »
Bam! Slam! Pow! Crash! BOOM!
There was a surreal moment after the debate last night. On CNN, the polling went overwhelmingly for Mitt Romney among debate watchers. Basically two-thirds of the American public who watched the debate claimed Romney won. A majority claimed Romney was with them on taxes, the economy, healthcare, their views of government, etc. He dominated. A CBS poll of undecided voters who watched the debate mirrored | Read More »
Mitt Romney’s operating system has clearly been updated to ass kicker mode. He drew out Barack Obama’s thin skin and petulant side. He wouldn’t look at Romney. He stumbled. He took more time than Romney because he stumbled over his uh’s and um’s. The professor got beat by the Governor. Where the heck did that come from?! James Carville says Romney looked like he wanted | Read More »
Obama’s Talking Points About Tonight
Remember that story the other day about Romney and the “zingers” for the debate? It struck me as more the Obama campaign pushing a story than anything real from the Romney camp. Below are the talking points the Obama camp is circulating this morning to get their surrogates ready for the media discussion. Note their use of the “zingers” bit among other things. Also, let’s | Read More »
Trent Lott Was Unavailable for Comment
I think this Tucker Carlson exclusive is damning. But it is damning not of Barack Obama. Conservatives already knew who he really was and is. The video is damning of the media. The media created the post-racial narrative of Barack Obama. The media invested its energies in it. Sure, they got an assist from the Obama campaign, but it was the media. Tonight, Tucker Carlson’s | Read More »
A Comedy of Terrors (The Latest Halloween Schlock From The Climate Scientologists)
As the epistemological failures of Climate Science become as large and as heavily burdensome as the Texas-sized growth of Antarctic Sea-Ice since 1979, the shrill histrionics of the Climate Scientologists who continue pushing for carbon regulation grow tinnier. Be very afraid, grants, Oops, I mean lives hang in the balance. If you fail to take action, you will die. It’s almost as if you had an alternative to eventually dying anyway.
Now listen carefully, class. The smart guy with the Piled-Higher-and-Deeper is here to condescend to the little guy. His name is Doctor Paul Ehrlich, and he’ll tell you how to vote this election so you don’t have to turn off the idiot box and ponder these things. His sage advice follows below.

The Marriage Question, Romney’s Polling, and Bibi’s Red Sharpie
You know that 50% of marriages in the United States end in divorce right? Every time gay marriage comes up, that data point comes up. Fifty percent of married couples get divorced. If heterosexual couples value marriage so little, why should they stand in the way of gay couples who really will value it as a civil right? You know that evangelical Christians in the | Read More »
Doom, Gloom, and Polls
Both sides in Campaign 2012 have a very unhealthy fixation on daily tracking polls. The media is using the polls as an excuse to not cover the growing disaster in Libya and instead focus on Romney. The right is using the polls as a tool to reinforce their disgust with the media. It is getting so bad, some are even now accusing RealClearPolitics of gaming | Read More »
On Polls and Polling
I do not believe the polls are all wrong. I do not believe there is some intentional, orchestrated campaign to suppress the GOP vote by showing Mitt Romney losing. I actually believe that Mitt Romney trails Barack Obama. I think Republicans putting their hopes in the polls all being wrong is foolish. But I also believe the polls are reflecting a bigger Democratic strength than | Read More »
Before the Rooster Crows
Here is the most profound insight of the week I can give you — in American politics, if a Republican candidate loses, the media blames it on the candidate being too conservative. If a Republican candidate wins, the media credits the candidate drifting toward the center. The only sure fire loser in American politics is the conservative movement, which is remarkable given the amazing success | Read More »
Mitt Romney’s Remarks are Another Chick-Fil-A Moment
Just a few months ago, Dan Cathy of Chick-Fil-A, gave an interview to a Christian publication that asked him about the Chick-Fil-A Foundation’s support of marriage. Cathy defending his position and spoke about his family’s faith. CNN.com picked it up and ran a story that Cathy had come out against gay marriage. In fact, Cathy hadn’t been asked directly about gay marriage, but it was | Read More »
