McCain and Graham Claim to Speak for Conservatives on Libya
Whenever we attempt to evince bold distinctions between ourselves and the Democrats, Lindsey Graham and John McCain can always be counted upon to muddle those distinctions. Foreign policy, in particular, is a subject in which voters struggle to perceive clear differences between the parties. Consequently, we must repel the rapturous support for the so-called Arab Spring emanating from Obama’s tag team of favorite Republicans. Back | Read More »
Dozens of Republicans Vote for Handouts to Big Labor
Yesterday, the House passed the largely non-controversial Military Construction/Veterans Affairs Appropriations (MilCon) bill for FY 2012. Unfortunately, it is these non-controversial bills which provide a safe haven for meretricious policy initiatives through the rapid fire amendment process. While everyone was focused on presidential politics, the House passed an amendment forcing government contractors to use labor unions on federal construction projects. Oh, and like most bad | Read More »
Jon Huntsman for Mike Bloomberg’s Vice President!
Around election time, conservatives are always confronted with the arduous task of sifting through candidates who propagate meretricious right wing talking points in an effort to conceal their faux conservative record. Thankfully, this election cycle, to a certain extent, has given rise to an anomalous level of veracity. Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are unambiguously communicating to conservatives that they are not ‘one of the | Read More »
It’s Obamacare, Stupid
Many establishment conservatives are agog with joy over the grand sellout of a budget deal. They feel that John Boehner was the real winner in the debate. The problem is that they are all focusing on the dollar amount of the discretionary spending cuts. They are forgetting the 800-pound gorilla in the room; Obamacare.

Mr. Trump – You’re Fired!!
I congratulate BigGator5 for bringing Donald Trump’s total dishonesty to my attention. It both disgusted me, and reminded me that after posting this categorical rejection of Mike Huckabee as a potential GOP Presidential Nominee, I had to be fair when I blogged in anger. Thus I will dispense some more justice. Mr. Trump, get a haircut. You’re fired!

GOP Credulously Chooses Incremental Conservatism to Combat Perennial Socialism
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”~ Ronald | Read More »
Six Republicans Sign Letter Demanding Ethanol Subsidy Extension
From the diaries by Erick. To quote my friend ‘Ironman’, “If an uncontested re-election doesn’t give John Thune the political courage to say no to BP and the ethanol robber barons, then he has no business getting near the White House when the successor to Obama needs to stop trillions in red ink.” ————- The ethanol mandates are one of the most regressive socialist interventions | Read More »
