To @DrewMTips And @charlescwcooke: Honestly, It Really Doesn’t Matter
I am watching the back and forth between Drew M and Charles C. W. Cook and I think to myself, who cares?! Both of you are right and both of you are wrong. And for the same reason, you both don’t get it: It doesn’t matter anymore. Charles C. W. Cook is right that McConnell and Boehner has been the voices of reason, but he | Read More »
Whither or Wither The House Democrats?
A subtle change has occurred in The House of Representatives. Some Democrats and some Republicans have decided to back away from the pork barrel one last final time. This happens every two years and usually doesn’t inspire much in the way of notice. Yet to see which Democrats have decided or may be deciding to call it a career is to finally have some hope | Read More »
Jesus Saves. Senator Pryor Tries To Score On The Rebound.
I’m remembering the 2007/2008 GOP Primary Season. It works well for those seeking a suitable method to self-castigate that leaves fewer marks than flagellation in a penitent’s closet. There was a long-shot candidate, Governor Huckabee from Arkansas, who had the vile audacity to mention his faith in an advertisement. There was a partial shot of a window in the spot that was designed to make us think of a cross. The Stephanopoulos Set reacted to this in the manner in which Gothic Fiction suggests any self-respecting Nosferatu would and reminded us all of how fascism would come to America wrapped in a cross and a flag.
If Senator Pryor were to occasionally open that Bible he holds up as a talisman athwart impending electoral doom, he would have to be struck by the verity of Ecclesiastes 1. Given the background story of Mike Huckabee’s rise in the Iowa Caucuses, it reminds me that indeed there is nothing new under the sun. Pryor reaches out to Jesus, in his moment of greatest need, as he comes to the existential realization that Media Matters just isn’t going to save him in his reelection race in Arkansas.

The Worst Thing about the Census Bureau, Unemployment Rate Conspiracy Theory
Boy! The pollsters sure taught Barack Obama a thing or two! If the election happened tomorrow, do you know who would beat him like a rented farmer’s mule? Mitt Romney! Of course, there’s a catch. The election was a year ago, and Mitt was the mutt that just didn’t quite have the sniff when it counted. Could this be the sign that the Progressives are finally on the way down from their hubris-laden perches of power and influence? It could be, but I have my skeptical doubts.
Yesterday we learned shocking news. Over 100 million Americans have signed up at healthcare.gov! Gappedo couldn’t build enough Pinocchios to rate this on the Washington Post lie scale, so we’re calling it a gaffe. It also comes on the heels of a less amusing foray into the domain of amateur male bovine scatology. It seems the US Census Bureau’s September 2012 Unemployment Report may have been a foray into the magical world of statistical engineering. The NY Post tells us the following:

Election 2014: Are Democrats Bailing On Obamacare?
The 2012 Supreme Court decision declaring Obamacare, aka the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, constitutional should have put the issue to rest. Only, it isn’t. Only, Republicans in Congress are still bristling at Chief Justice John Roberts’ unexpected deciding vote in favor of the president’s signature legislative accomplishment. Only, after more than 30 votes in the US House to repeal the federal takeover of America’s healthcare | Read More »
Sen. Mark Pryor Tackles The Tough Issues
While Washington is awash in scandal and news broke that Democrats wanted the IRS to probe tax-exempt political groups, Mark Pryor is talking about… football… grilling… and his favorite movie. Sounds about right for someone who is looking to hide his liberal voting record from constituents.
Scandals Bode Ill for Dems
Jonathan Weisman and Matthew Wald write in The New York Times, “Since last year’s elections, Republicans in Congress have struggled for traction on their legislative efforts, torn between conservatives who drove the agenda after the 2010 landslide and new voices counseling a shift in course to reflect President Obama’s re-election and the 2012 loss of Republican seats in the House and the Senate.” Enter the | Read More »

Hit them Hard and Hit them Now
Seems like the D.C. Repubs are at a loss for direction. The MSM has boxed them in and like lemmings they are charging full speed ahead over the cliff to their extinction. WHY????? 1. MSM’s influence over low information voters??? 2. Hollywood desensitizing???? 3. Public education ruled by unions bent on their own benefit versus the students???? The list goes on but what do we | Read More »
