Hey Tommy, What Christmas Gifts Do You Approve Of?
OK, it’s official–I’ve had enough. This whole bruhaha started when former Mike Huckabee campaign chair, Chip Saltsman, gave some fellow RNC members, as a private Christmas gift, a CD of political parodies from the Rush Limbaugh show, written and performed by Paul Shanklin. Because the CD had one track (out of 41 tracks) on it titled “Barack The Magic Negro”, Saltsman promptly was called a “racist” by | Read More »

With regard to front page contributors
There has been a mild aggravation from some readers when I mentioned for probably the tenth time that front page contributors at RedState are all pro-life. It is nothing new. We’ve had this requirement since 2004, the year we came online. I guarantee you that for all the complaints from a very few people, we’d have a heck of a lot of complaints if we | Read More »

Let’s begin taking RedState to the next level

Let’s make Georgia the pilot project. | Read More »
“The Left owns the Internet”
A number of interesting observations have percolated throughout the Interweb in the aftermath of the 2008 election – arguments about the “youth vote”, the “center-right versus center-left,” pushing aside social conservative issues, etc. But one of the most thought-provoking topics receiving attention is the issue of the presence (or lack thereof) of the Right in the online “Web 2.0″ universe.
