‘The People’s Seat.’
This was easily the most important thing said at yesterday’s Brown/Coakley debate. (Via American Glob; H/T The Other McCain; see also Nice Deb.) There’s a reason why Brown raised 1.3 million dollars in just over 24 hours (and over 1 million in 24 hours) yesterday; it’s because the Massachusetts Senatorial race reeks of entitlement. The major reason why Brown is able to be in a | Read More »

State Senator Scott Brown won the Republican primary with 90% of the | Read More »
Ted Kennedy, Pro-Lifer
An observant reader notes that my description yesterday of Ted Kennedy’s support for legal abortion as “lifelong” is an overstatement. In fact, early in his public career, even Ted Kennedy had not yet embraced the casual cruelty of his party towards the defenseless unborn; indeed, Kennedy’s rhetoric in those early days, displays genuine compassion for the defenseless unborn. Given Kennedy’s centrality to Democratic strategy on | Read More »
The Kennedy Institute for Screwing our Troops
I guess it could also be the ‘Kennedy Institute for Screwing our Servicemembers’ or KISS, but, whatever. The Times is reporting that: Senators diverted $2.6 billion in funds in a defense spending bill to pet projects largely at the expense of accounts that pay for fuel, ammunition and training for U.S. troops, including those fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to an analysis. Earmarks | Read More »
A Legislative Flip Flop Outrageous Even By Massachusetts Standards

To prevent this from happening, the state legislature, led by the Democrat | Read More »

Liberals Signal The Next Step For Obamacare….I Mean Kennedycare
Democrats have been known to say and do just about anything in order to deceive, exaggerate and plain old lie their way into getting the American people to fall into their legislative traps.

The Democrats under his leadership have established | Read More »
A Legacy We Can Live Without
The forces of the left are now trying to argue that Senator Edward Kennedy’s death is another, new, powerful reason that we must pass H.R. 3200 (or something like it) as a tribute to the “great Senator”, or as his last great legacy, or something else equally foolish. They even want to rename the bill in his honor (something that I expected to actually happen | Read More »

There is no shame in allowing a day for the | Read More »
