God Bless America. Jeff Flake is In!
Jeff Flake is running for the Senate. He’ll be my first campaign contribution for the 2012 season. I know some of you are not fans of Flake’s because he sided with McCain on immigration. But I have to tell you, that he is so uncontrollable and, other than that issue, so much one of us, I’ll forgive him that. His score card for the Club | Read More »
Let Me Pre-Emptively Endorse Jeff Flake
Senator Jon Kyl (R-AZ) is throwing in the towel and retiring from the Senate. Much speculation will be had over the next few weeks about who to endorse and who to support. Let me be up front and just say I endorse Jeff Flake for the United States Senate. Now . . . now we just need to get him to run. Details. Just a | Read More »
The President’s Speech and Killing Sarah Palin
What was billed as a “memorial service” in Arizona last night was more of a pep-rally and celebration of life. It was complete with sloganeering, bumper stickers, and t-shirts. It is what was needed. What’s more, Mr. Obama gave a stunning rebuke to his own base who’ve engaged in a horrific blame game all week. But at a time when our discourse has become so | Read More »
The Blame Game and my Tirade
So Cornell Belcher, as I mentioned earlier, wanted to accuse the tea party movement and the right of being much more vitriolic than the left. That kind of set me on a tirade. With great demand from many of you, CNN was kind enough to get the video into an embeddable file. Here now is my tirade:
“Whether you believe it or not, here is the reality: beyond us is a world we cannot see with our eyes — a world of very real angels and very real demons, of a very real God and a very real devil. ” I am tired of talking about the Arizona shooting. The left has done its best to try to pin it on the | Read More »
Only 33% believe ‘harsh political tone’ had anything to do with Arizona shooting
Most Americans, 57 percent, believe the tragic shooting in Arizona isn’t connected to politics. That’s the result of a new CBS News poll which found only 32 percent of respondents aid the harsh political tone had something to do with the shooting. The poll of course found a partisan divide: Republicans — 69 percent said rhetoric was not to blame; 19 percent said it played | Read More »
The Left Puts a Bullseye on the Right
If this weekend has taught us anything politically, it’s that the left is not interested in facts. Once a template has been established, no amount of evidence is going to usurp their idea of how and why certain events have transpired. After the Discovery Channel hostage situation, Media Matters grabbed the mantle of leadership and advised against jumping to conclusions: Today they have some more | Read More »

I’m going to make a political point now
For those still attacking Sarah Palin for daring to use the word “targets” and maps against Democrats, including Gabrielle Giffords, please note that the DLC and DCCC, the D is for “Democratic”, also had maps with targets in earlier years. Likewise Markos Moulitsas of the Daily Kos targetted Gabrielle Giffords himself. The self-serving attack over the use of maps and the word “target” is both | Read More »
Prediction: Clarence Dupnik will lose his next election.
Via Ace of Spades and Mediate, here’s is Tuscon Sheriff Dupnik’s… sub-optimal… interview with Megyn Kelly. Pay close attention to his commentary at about 5:15, where he implicitly blames the attempted assassination of Congresswoman Giffords on the Chinese.
The extreme rhetoric should stop here
In the wake of the tragic shooting in Arizona there has been a lot of talk about the “tense political climate” and “extreme rhetoric.” Sadly, all that talk and the left’s determination to blame the right for the evil act committed by an apparently deranged young man has required that we do more than offer prayers condolences to victims and their families. Instead, we have | Read More »
The Media & The Shooter
“The tea party movement won in November. Winners don’t go on shooting sprees.” This morning we pray for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, her family, and the other victims of the heinous violence in Arizona. It should not be, but the media, under the guise of “a full exposition” of the evil in Arizona, is back to subtly and not so subtly pinning the blame for the | Read More »
The Blame Game and Prayers Begin
Editorial Note: This morning, prior to this news, we were running a caption contest on this cartoon. We have suspended that contest and removed the cartoon from the front page. — Erick —————————– A terrible tragedy today. Rep. Giffords of Arizona was gunned down and, though early reports were that she is dead, the hospital is confirming, as of this writing, that she is alive | Read More »
Meet Ruth McClung (R CAND, AZ-07).
This interview actually took place last week, but got delayed due to personal considerations that aren’t really relevant to the AZ-07 race. Ruth is a bona fide rocket scientist facing Raul Grijalva, who is mostly known for trying to drive up Arizona’s unemployment rate in a fit of, bluntly, pique. Oh, yeah: Grijalva also aids and abets pro-terrorist organizations. Ruth and I had a chat | Read More »
Ruth McClung (R CAND, AZ-07) Moneybomb.
I’m in the process of processing for tomorrow morning the interview I had with Ruth McClung a couple of hours ago, but (via Instapundit) she’s doing a moneybomb right now: she’s aiming for $100K and has gotten $77K so far. The theme is “Goodbye. Grijalva” – and goodness knows that such a thing would be absolutely swell. Raul Grijalva, of course, is the legislator so | Read More »
