    I Think CNN.com Badly Mischaracterizes This Site

    I tried to ignore this piece at CNN.com by Tom Cohen, but given how it continues to crop up in my inbox from people on both the left and right, I think it is worth responding to.I reached out to my friends and colleagues over at CNN.com to tell them I thought both I and RedState were being badly mischaracterized.

    Um . . . Heck Yeah We Are the Latter

    The hand wringing continues about the 2012 loss. This time it has moved to “conservative media.” Included in the Buzzfeed article is this: John Podhoretz, the editor of Commentary and a prolific tweeter, rejected the notion that Obama’s reelection represented a failure of the conservative media. But he said that as the GOP tries to widen its tent in the coming months and years, conservative | Read More »

    Is It Time to Roll Up the Welcome Mat Here?

    Barack Obama won the election. He did not win by stealing the election. Voter irregularities always happen. It is one reason we support voter ID rules. But even in the worse scenario of reports out there, there were not enough tales of voter irregularities to matter nationwide. This is another benefit and built in safeguard of the electoral college. Barack Obama won. He won by | Read More »

    Mitt Romney Promise to a Special Forces Dad on election eve

    We are privileged to pass on this “Thank you open letter to Mitt Romney”  “Dear Governor Romney.  Thank you for coming to Morrisville, PA this past Sunday.  After your remarks as you went down the line shaking hands with those who had stood there 5 hours to get a front row spot, I am the one who got your attention by saying ‘My son is | Read More »

    KRAUTHAMMER’S “The Choice” — Historic Conservative Survival and Liberty or…

      Brevity with a clear message is the essence of intelligent communication. Through a historical lens, Krauthammer points out, in concise terms, what this election may mean. Tuesday will offer either a “turn around” for America, and thus renew as Reagan put in 1964, “the last best hope for man on earth,”  or in a downward spiral American freedom and growth may become nothing more than darkness at | Read More »

    Regarding Disqus

    I want to update the community on Disqus and our use of it.What you must understand first is that we have a growth plan for RedState over the next few years and we needed to push our redesign forward now, before election traffic, because up until the redesign launch RedState was crashing every day. It might not have been noticeable to you, but each day | Read More »

    Redesign Open Thread

    Comments, complaints, and thoughts about the redesign? Put them here. We’re still working. It was my call to put it up live haints, boogers, warts, and all otherwise we’d just keep tweaking and never get it up.I take responsibility for that. So have at it here. I’ll monitor this thread.
