Best Rant at CPAC–By a British Exchange Student
I am thoroughly enjoying myself at CPAC 2010. As well as being informative, invigorating, and exhilarating, a group of 10,000 people including a lot of students makes a great mix of personalities. There are people here not only from the US but many from Canada, Ireland, England and several other countries as well. Speakers have been revved up. Especially Boehner, Rubio, and Herman Cain.

CPAC 2010: An Event to really irritate the Libs
Live, from the Bloggers Lounge, it’s CPAC 2010! I have had the distinct privilege to be able to attend CPAC 2010 in DC. What an absolutely amazing experience it has been so far, and we are only 3 hours into the event! This is gonna be a real barn-burner. Because at least 10,000 Conservatives are expected to attend, I am assuming a lot of teeth-gnashing | Read More »
Dockery’s Campaign Website suffer DoS Attack
Florida Senator Paula Dockery’s campaign web site, www.peopleforpaula.com, was hacked within 24 hours of her press announcement for filing a bill that would prevent legislators from voting on issues that would personally benefit themselves or their relatives. Dockery (R-Lakeland), a candidate for the Governor’s seat being vacated by Charlie Crist (running for US Senate), and who has developed a reputation as an anti-corruption/pro-taxpayer crusader as well | Read More »
PATHETIC: NRSC Attempts to Take Credit Away from Grassroots for Brown Surge in MA
From the diaries . . . How sad. Apparently, without the help of NRSC’s crack campaign team, Scott Brown may never have had a chance at victory today. It wasn’t the tea parties, or the grassroots anger at Washington, or Scott Brown’s courage to stand against Obamacare in the bluest of states… No, it was the GOP establishment in Washington that “quietly” engineered this win. | Read More »
Has the GOP learned its lesson? Reclaiming a conservative, not Republican majority
Tomorrow Republican Scott Brown seeks to claim victory against what once was thought of as a shoo-in coronation of Massachusetts Democrat Martha Coakley. Tomorrow we being to reclaim the idea that conservatism, even in Massachusetts is preferable to Obama’s all powerful state. We have run in many ways, the perfect candidate, Scott Brown, White Knight of Massachusetts. All of you know that I love to | Read More »
My call to the NRSC…nothing but SPIN SPIN SPIN
Lady: How may I help you? Me: I was just on the NRSC website and was wondering why certain Republican candidates for Senate weren’t listed. Lady: What?? I’m confused, what are you talking about? We have everyone listed there. Me: Then why isn’t Marco Rubio listed as a GOP Candidate for florida on the website? Lady: Oh, well in Florida’s case the NRSC has already | Read More »
What a Year for Republican Candidates…
…especially in the Senate races. I don’t have a whole ton of time to get this down, so this is going to be a bit quick and dirty. Here’s my main thought: How unbelievably politically bad for President Obama would this headline be, E-Day Plus One: Mark Kirk Wins Obama’s Senate Seat in Shocker Well, it wouldn’t be nearly as bad as if Kirk picked | Read More »
Defending Erick Erickson
False claims of race-baiting have no place in civilized society Nor on the front page of Race42012 It is with great sadness that I am compelled to write this column defending Erick Erickson of Redstate.com against false charges of “pulling the race card”; “race-baiting”; and of being a “race pimp.” Those are fighting words where I come from, and so, after following the Biblical step-by-step | Read More »
Conservatives fight like the brave 300, now where is our Leonidas?
As promised, your favorite Black Conservative returns with a vengeance to the blogging world, like Sarah Palin, EPU, David Hinz, janis, bsimpson, Gamecock, AceInTx, and all of my blogging friends proud to be conservative and not Republican. I took a non voluntary break due to my inability to prevent ordering gaps in my internet service, only to find that the political world is turning upside | Read More »
Gathering a head of steam…
Hat tip to the Weekly Standard Blog. Here’s the cover of the latest National Review… Marco’s got a real shot, from John J. Miller’s cover story…The primary is closed, which means that only registered Republicans can participate. Turnout probably will be low, which increases the importance of conservative activists. Rubio also has started to attract national attention. Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina and former | Read More »
Crist Trying To Tempt Rubio Into A House Seat?
The race for the Florida Senate seat is getting interesting. Charlie Crist has sent applications to three people for the interim appointment. One of them is Republican Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart, which is surprising. People were expecting a placemat, but Diaz-Balart is an actively engaged and elected politician. An appointment would seemingly end his political career. Second, Diaz-Balart’s district overlaps Marco Rubio’s state district. According to | Read More »
This is a man to support! marco2010
Friday was a night I will remember for many years to come. I had that rarest of experiences. I met a statesman. I got to shake his hand, look in his eyes and see his heart. I got to see the love that he has for his country and it’s people. No, it wasn’t George W. Bush, though I think he had much of that | Read More »
Racist? Uh, no.
Well, I knew it would happen, but I still am an idealist. I thought that perhaps, in our tolerant transparent America we could go through the hearings for a nominee for Supreme Court without cries of racism. But once again I am disappointed. So I guess I need to address this issue, since I have been called a racist (and a bit worse) for questioning | Read More »
My Apologies, Sen. Cornyn. The NRSC-Crist Endorsement Was Brilliant!
Several months ago, I made my first political contribution to the NRSC. I promised the telemarketer who called that I would contribute $X for every GOP senator who voted against the TARP bill. Last month, the same telemarketer called again for more money. I basically told them to take a hike because I was furious that Sen. John Cornyn and the NRSC had endorsed Florida | Read More »
Moderates circle the wagons…for Charlie Crist. What are they afraid of?
The putative leaders of the Senate Republicans, Senators McConnell, McCain and Cornyn will be in Florida soon to raise money for Charlie Crist. “Florida’s Republican Governor Charlie Crist is getting a big boost for his U.S. Senate bid from a bevy of GOP A-listers. Helping to raise money for Crist in Washington are Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) chairman Sen. | Read More »
