Even Slate’s Feminist Blog Finds The ‘Binders’ Meme Stupid
Even Slate Magazine’s feminist blog, Double X, which was co-founded by Hanna Rosin, who recently authored The End of Men, thinks the “binders full of women” meme is stupid. Amanda Hess wrote on October 17 that she “agree[s] that Romney’s positions on health care, contraception, and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act will do nothing to help women…binders stocked with intelligence on top-shelf female candidates, though? | Read More »
A Wide Electoral/Popular Vote Split Won’t Happen
There is an emerging narrative percolating throughout the political world; the prospect that Romney could win the popular vote but lose the Electoral College. The theory is predicated on the seemingly contradictory data between state and national polls. National polls seem to show Romney with a consistent 2-4% lead, while state polls show the candidates tied or Obama slightly ahead in Ohio, Iowa, and Wisconsin. | Read More »
Swingometer: Gallup Party ID figures predict solid Romney win
We always talk about the independent, swing vote in elections because those tend to be the persuadables. But party ID numbers matter as well, because those partisan voters tend to split better than 90/10 for their party.
It is for that reason that Gallup’s new partisan ID split, one that mimics what Rasmussen has been saying all along, predicts nothing less than doom for the Democrats, and a solid, national win for Mitt Romney this year.

Cheap Tricks and One Night Stands
If you needed further proof about just how much the President has cheapened the Presidency, consider his latest ad, which not only compares voting for him for the first time to losing virginity, but also ridicules those who might not want to lose their virginity to just any politician. This is the peer group peer pressure people across the political aisle have complained about in | Read More »
Does the Obama Campaign have to report this Rolling Stone interview as a donation-in-kind?
I realize that more eyeballs are seeing this post than have seen the last dozen issues of the hyper-political Rolling Stone. For the 99.999999% of America that doesn’t touch the magazine with a thirty-nine-and-a-half-foot pole, here’s a list of the questions that Douglas Brinkley asked President Obama for the latest issue.
Then again, you know what? Forget “donation in kind.” Rolling Stone should be booked on prostitution charges after this printed romp in the sack.

Tech at Night: Cybersecurity and the imperial presidency
We’re still in wait and see mode on what the Obama administration will try with respect to cybersecurity, but of course they’ll use every news event as justification. Here’s the problem though: Attacks like the Iranian attack on Saudi Arabia prove that businesses must use best practices, but government regulation will only hinder industry from keeping up with the latest. Regulation is too slow. Government is too restrictive, and not accountable enough.

Live Action Advocate Exposes Planned Parenthood’s Botched Abortions and Cover-Ups
Lila Rose, of the Live Action Advocate, has released a video exposing Planned Parenthood’s negligence in the death of Tonya Reaves, who bled to death in a botched abortion at one of their clinics. Additionally, the video contains recorded phone conversations with Planned Parenthood employees lying to would-be visitors about the health risks involved with an abortion procedure at clinics that have had medical emergencies | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Potemkin Bipartisanship
One of the major reasons why Mitt Romney was able to make such rapid inroads against Barack Obama in their first debate, and why poll after poll shows that independent voters have turned decisively against Obama, is that Romney was able to lay bare the hollowness of Obama’s claims to bipartisanship. And given the Obama record of the past four years, there is no reason | Read More »
Obama’s Hubris Will be His Undoing
Barack Obama has lost North Carolina and Florida. His ground game is at near parity in early voting with the GOP, the GOP is more energized, and he is going to lose both. But he will not stop spending money in those two states and redirect the resources to Ohio, which is now a must win state for him. He will not do it because | Read More »
ROMNEY WARNS PUTIN or “I Vill Transmit Dis to Vladimir II”
When Barack Obama chose to send a message to Vladimir Putin this spring at the 2012 Nuclear Security Summit in Korea, he couldn’t have know the mic was on as he conveyed words meant to be privately relayed to the Russian strong man. If a Republican President had done what he did on that day in March the US media would have never let it go and the | Read More »
Is It ‘Revenge of the Soccer Moms?’
This election will be decided by women. That’s what the experts say, which is why the left-wing and the Obama campaign were so adamant in driving the wedge issues of abortion and contraception to consolidate their support. During the Democratic National Convention, abortion was front and center. As I’ve said ad nauseum, it was Abortion Fest 2012. The only thing missing was an addendum to | Read More »
Playing With Horses and Bayonets
The debate last night was very boring. I’m enthused about voting Barack Obama out of office and I think Mitt Romney will win this election, but I definitely see why people probably switched off the debate to watch Monday Night Football or the San Francisco Giants game. In all, polls show that President Obama pulled ahead of Governor Romney, but this is the least important | Read More »

At Lynn, Mitt Wins Safe Debate
Governor Romney played it safe, but did enough to secure the win in the final debate at Lynn University. In playing it safe, however, Governor Romney did leave some notable issues on the table. For example, Romney had opportunities to attack the incumbent president’s position with respect to the tragic and preventable deaths in Libya and the faux video excuse propagated to the American people | Read More »
Tech at Night: The danger of the Consent Decree era; Prepare for whining from the anti-copyright anarchists
Haven’t heard about the Cybersecurity Executive Order in a while. Maybe they’re getting talked out of it at the Obama White House? Or maybe they’re hoping to sneak it in just before Romney is inaugurated?
Meanwhile, FTC locks down yet another firm under consent decree, in this case Compete.com. Regulating the world beyond statutory authority through the back door. That’s what the consent decree era means.

Correcting Obama’s Debate Comments on the United States Navy
Earlier this evening in the Third Presidential Debate Mitt Romney raised legitimate concerns about the current and shrinking size of the United States Navy. The President responded snarkily by saying that size does not matter because we have these these “things” called Carriers that “planes can land on” and these “things” that go underwater. This pathetic attempt at rebuttal by Obama is quite simple. The | Read More »
