Congressional Black Caucus Beclowns Itself Again, Wants Sheila Jackson Lee for SecDHS
No, this is not a joke. With Janet Napolitano leaving the office of Secretary of Homeland Security at the end of August, the search has been on for her replacement. One of the early candidates to replace her was rumored to be Congressman Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, the ranking member and former chair of the House Homeland Security Committee. As a black Democrat on the | Read More »
Is “IRS” The New “N-Word”?
There is nothing, nothing, in politics more infuriating than the Democrats’ relentless use of racial division to cement the kind of thinking Courtland Milloy illustrated in his latest Washington Post column. The ever-expanding list of things that are considered racist to criticize so long as Obama is president is perhaps the most absurd manifestation of this line of thinking. Nearly all of these fail “the | Read More »
How Mitt Romney Can Strip President Obama Of His Teflon Coating
There exists a fairly significant number of voters who will support Barack Obama in 2012 regardless of what Mitt Romney says or does. There is a somewhat smaller population that will almost indutiably support GOP Candidate Mitt Romney. What remains in the middle will care about both what Mitt Romney says and what he does not say.

It’s silly season, I know. But that doesn’t mean we need to tolerate left-wing nonsense thrown at our candidates. If you’re familiar with his stump speech, Newt Gingrich routinely argues that Obama is a food stamp president and he’d be a paychecks president – that his economic plan would get more people to work so they wouldn’t be stuck relying on government aid. It’s one | Read More »
Only One Card Left In Her Deck
Yes, I know what you are going to say… “Stop giving her attention and she will go away.” The problem though, is that she has proven that she will not go away even when ignored. Why would she, she has “Olby” to give her liberal ideas (a.k.a. name calling) a platform. With the easy pickings for cartoon ideas that appear every time she opens her | Read More »
Voter ID and Voter Contempt.
It is hard to imagine a more demeaning statement about black America than labeling demands that all voters show a photo ID anti-black. – Dennis Prager (HT: National Review) Wow! Talk about the soft bigotry of low expectations. Democrats across America have risen en masse to fight Voter ID laws. Their talking points all read in a depressingly similar fashion.
