It was a good day. [Some of the below was in a comment I posted to another Redstater’s diary.] Bob McDonnell and Bill Bolling formally kicked off their campaign for Virginia’ governor and lt. governor in Annandale. Nice turnout, which the Fairfax GOP numbered at 700.

Reluctant Schoolmasters: Small Businessmen Will Educate the Elite at the Expense of the Poor
I think those of us who are small businesspeople will avoid taxes, recover and rebuild and even prosper quite nicely. But it is a darned shame that those of us who know how to make money must change hats for the next 2-4 years and act as schoolmasters to the new administration. Immanuel’s remark about ‘not wasting a crisis’ showed such deep cynicism and insensitivity towards | Read More »

As Noel Sheppard of NewsBusters.org noted on March 1, the skin mag published a piece claiming that Santelli was part of a vast right-wing conspiracy to protest Obama’s socialist policies.

A roundup of today’s Tea Parties.
Glenn Reynolds has two very large links (here and here [the latter being the main page; the link’s goofed up for some reason]). See also Hot Air, Michelle Malkin, the Repurblican, Gateway Pundit, GayPatriot, Riehl World View, Ace of Spades, and a whole bunch of others for details.

It’s been a few days since we were energized by Rick Santelli going off on Obama from the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Stock Exchange, but there is still an untapped groundswell of discontent and resentment in this country for the policies and agenda that Obama and his administration are bringing down on America. I think that the media missed the boat on its analysis | Read More »
