The only thing more hypocritical than Terry McAuliffe? The Lefties now supporting him.
There’s some raised eyebrows at some of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s donors: specifically the detail that 78% of his funding in the last quarter came from out-of-state donors. Looking at the donor list, I note that some of the folks involve include: Terry’s father-in-law Richard Swann, who is probably best known for being president, back in the day, of the infamously failed American Pioneer | Read More »
No, This Isn’t an April Fool’s Joke…
I have to admit: I am a little skeptical of some major news stories on April 1st. After all, there’s always the chance that it could be an April Fool’s joke, like this story from April 1st of last year that ran on the BBC announcing that the world had exploded. So, it was with this in mind that I did something of a double | Read More »
Let me explain why Henry Repeating Rifles advertises on MSNBC.
Background: Don’t tell us that Al Sharpton and MSNBC are hypocrites? Noooo!! The Reverend Al opened his show by praising President Obama’s efforts to promote tougher gun control laws. But 28 minutes into the show, a commercial appeared for, of all things . . . Henry Repeating Rifles. Go to Henry Rifle’s website and you’ll find one rifle described as “big, brutal and beautiful” and | Read More »
The coming Democratic hypocrisy about their coming NON-divestment from Bain Capital.
Let me summarize this NRO article by Deroy Murdock: Democratic (specifically, Barack Obama’s) rhetoric about Bain Capital has not particularly stopped Democratic-aligned organizations from investing with it. This includes groups like government employee pension funds ($1.56 billion since 2008), universities ($at least 425 million between 1998-2008), ‘center-left foundations and cultural establishments’… and my personal favorite: the California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CSTRS), which has invested $1.25 billion with Bain Capital.

The startlingly unconscious bigotry of NYT’s Steve Almond.
The following is a list of the insults, negative potrayals, and generally offensive rhetoric found in this NYT article by liberal Steve Almond calling for… more civility from liberals. Sean Hannity represented the bane of American civic life: a blow-dried blowhard paid to vilify his enemies and incite his imbecilic fans… his bullying…an escalating right-wing fanaticism…conservative folly…all the mean, manipulative things those people say…He’s just | Read More »
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed hates Bain! …Except the parts* that are helping *him*.
This Bain thing is getting weird. And by weird I mean “self-immolating for Democrats.” Point: [Atlanta Mayor Kasim] Reed said on NBC’s Sunday political broadcast he was alarmed by the internal Democratic skirmish over whether or not President Barack Obama should attack his GOP rival’s business career, likening the prospect of campaigning without the volley to fighting “with one hand behind his back.” “[F]or Democrats | Read More »
Barack Obama and The Hypocrisy of Choom.
Let me just lay this out for you. Barack Obama smoked a lot of pot in high school and college. To the point of having a ‘Choom gang’ dedicated to smoking the stuff. I don’t particularly care about that. Obama has since become a standard tough-guy politician on the War on Some Drugs*. I care somewhat about that, but it’s something that happens with a | Read More »
Barack Obama’s convenient Wall Street hypocrisy.
I just had it forwarded to me that Barack Obama is doing a 2 million dollar fundraiser today with Tony James, who is the head of the Blackstone financial services group. So… why should you care? Well, two reasons: first off, in February of this year Tony James criticized anti-Romney ads that attempted to demagogue Romney’s relationship with Bain Capital. James felt that they were | Read More »
Tech at Night: Q&A with with Steve Scalise on Retransmission Consent; Snyder backs Marketplace Fairness Act; Lieberman-Collins gets opposition
Technical note: This was written Friday night, but due to technical difficulties at RedState, was only posted Saturday afternoon I know many RedState readers are big fans of Jim DeMint, so in my coverage of the Retransmission Consent debate, I’ve focused on him. However he’s not the whole story. This Congress, due to the TEA party-driven Republican majority, it’s been the House where our major | Read More »

Les Miserables II
“Once I was in the state legislature, I was teaching, I was practicing law, I’d be traveling,” he said. “And we didn’t have the luxury for her not to work….” (HT:CNSnews) OK. So Hillary Rosen inserts foot in mouth up to knee and requires immediate medical evacuation as far away from a live microphone as possible. That’s OK, we get it. She, like Huey “The | Read More »
Barack Obama: STILL not paying women as much as men?
Via @mkhammer comes this latest example of Do As I Say, Not As I Line-Item Budget from the Obama administration. Executive summary: the Obama administration is allegedly paying its female staffers roughly 18% less than its male ones. I’m using the term ‘allegedly’ because the original report did not separate out staffers by gender, forcing “some assumptions to be made based on the employee names” | Read More »
Barack Obama denounces himself over gas price attack ads.
Statement (Via Jim Geraghty’s Morning Jolt): “Every time prices start to go up – especially in an election year – politicians dust off their three-point plans for $2 gasoline. They head down to the pump, make sure a few cameras are following them, and start acting like they can wave a magic wand and you’ll have cheap gas forever. Sound familiar?” Obama said. Oddly enough, | Read More »

Occupy DC throws smoke bomb at White House… AND WAS NOT MADE TO RETREAT?
Just for calibration… back in April of 2009 I attended the DC Tax Day Tea Party; and one of the more interesting moments of that day was when a box was found to have been thrown over the White House fence, causing the US Secret Service to pretty much push everybody out of Lafayette Park. Never knew who threw the box (obviously, nothing in it), | Read More »
The Revolution will be coordinated from pricy hotels.
But never mind that, Comrade. Surely it must be understood that oversight of the glorious proletarian class struggle against the capitalist bosses and their running-dog international banker lackeys requires a full effort from those chosen to speak on behalf of the workers, yes? And since the Struggle has reached a critical moment, the stresses on, and expectations of, those individuals so chosen are at their | Read More »
