Bob Herbert, There You Go Again….[Updated]

    As some of Redstate’s regular readers are aware, I have previously written diaries about Frank Rich and Nicholas Kristof. Well now, in part three of my series titled “Get to know a New York Times Columnist”, I will dissect Bob Herbert. Yesterday, Bob Herbert wrote a column that I felt needed a response. He started out by complaining about MN congresswoman Michelle Bachman (mind you, | Read More »

    Creeping Creepy Holiday

    Halloween is coming around again and nobody seems to be suggesting that it offends anyone as many suggest every year that Christmas does. No, Halloween is a pagan, nondiscriminating celebration of ghoulishness and death, and so, being an increasingly liberal nation that embraces nondiscriminating ghoulishness and death over righteousness and piety, Halloween has become a member in good standing in our national pantheon of holidays.Once | Read More »

    Is Governor Patrick Thinking of Leaning Right?

    Governor Deval Patrick says people in Massachusetts may freeze to death this winter. Here’s my advice: become a Republican. Republicans created global warming, and we don’t care to fix it. Republicans also want to drill for oil. Could Gov. Patrick possibly be leaning to the Right?

    Red vs. Blue Instead of Blue vs. Gray

    I just had the weirdest thought….this country has not been as divided as it today since the War Between the States, A.K.A. The Civil War, some 140 + years ago. We are not divided over the issue of slavery or states rights like back then. Our divisions today include:socialism vs. capitalismpro-abortion vs. pro-lifeanti death penalty vs. pro death penaltyopen borders with unlimited immigration vs. secure | Read More »

    In Defense of Redstate…..

    In today’s New York Times, columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote an op-ed about how Republicans are trying to “otherize” Barack Obama by playing up rumors of him being a secret Muslim or even the anti-Christ. In his column today, Kristof listed Redstate (along with Jerome Corsi) as one of the Republican institutions that was attempting to “otherize” Obama with the secret Muslim/anti-Christ rumors. Kristof even placed | Read More »

    Who do you really want running our country: Brooks & Dunn or Heart?

    Promoted, with my own observation: you current and former pop stars out there, think for a moment. Do you really think that the McCain campaign minds it when you loudly and explicitly disavow yourselves from him – and, thus, identify yourselves as being for Obama? I mean, you did catch the entire “celebrity” meme, right? – Moe LaneAs yet another indication of the over-the-top Obamania, | Read More »

    Views From The Hill Side

    Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican, Independent or Libertarian and Green Party member this election season, by all means resurrected and for the first time brought forth issues and discussions that in the long run help us shape and reshape our country into that more perfect union our founding fathers visualized 230 some odd years ago.It’s funny how things have a way to come about. | Read More »

    Culture11: Radically Taking on Culture

    Okay so had to have noticed that liberals dominate entertainment, culture and most things that are deemed “cool” in society (aside from guns, motorcycles and other badass endeavors of the sort). And Barack Obama sure isn’t oh-so-close to becoming President because he’s a great leader or has good credentials. He’s where he is because he reached into American culture and – *he got to them. | Read More »

    Frank Rich is an Awful Person

    I’m sure that you all remember the so called “disastrous” Senate race of former Virginia Senator George Allen back in 2006. However, it is extremely difficult to run a successful race of any kind when the mainstream media (particularly The Washington Post) is literally waging a jihad against you, but I digress. Anyway, you all are probably wondering what George Allen and Barack Obama have | Read More »

    Intellectually Excavating Indiana Jones Unearths Epistemological Artifacts

    As a discipline, archaeology examines the artistic and technological remains of various cultures in the attempt to learn more about them. Often from these objects, students learn about more than the subject’s material nature but also insight into the beliefs and paradigms important to the human species at a particular time.

    Dobson moments vs. Evangelical Election Days

    Evangelicals have been the most loyal GOP voters since Ronald Reagan brought them into the party in droves in 1980. They left their previous apathy or Democratic Party allegiance to vote for Republicans based on issues, not instructions from media appointed “leaders.”Given that, I was quite amused at all the teeth gnashing by certain libertarian and/or secular leaning conservatives last winter when Dr. James Dobson | Read More »

    It Was Disney

    So I’ve been out of town the last few weeks. The family and I took a huge road trip vacation in our brand new, cherry red, fuel efficient Chevy HHR. Yes gas is expensive. However, I’d saved up some gas rewards and MyPoints and managed to cover a lot of it. Yes, 12 hotel nights are expensive, but I’ve saved up hundreds of thousands of | Read More »



    The Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts decided that homosexuals should be able to marry. Conservative commentators have had a lot to say about the issue and specifically as it relates to the rights of the various other States to recognize marriage.That flapping and squawking sound you’re hearing is the chickens coming home to roost. Kind of like the swallows coming back to Capistrano. | Read More »

    Some Weekend Cultural Upliftenment – Romanian Lunch Menu

    This is the fish page from a lunch menu, photographed by your humble correspondent this past Monday in Oradea, Romania….(A pity that flickr mucks up images, as the original is much clearer. Be sure to squint in to read the “subtitles” with each item!)Comments are encouraged….
