Will the Real Newt Gingrich Please Stand Up?
I wince when people hold up Newt Gingrich as an alternative to Mitt Romney. Why? I’ve dissected this short revealing video of Gingrich and Hillary Clinton in front of the cameras back in 2005 making the case for health care mandates. I was able to weed my way through the piles of Newt-speak to find a very candid glimpse of the real Newt. Full video: Gingrich and | Read More »
Is the Political Entertainment Industry hurting America?
Before there was a Rush Limbaugh there was a Roone Arledge. Arledge was the driving force behind “ABC’s Wide World of Sports”. He made even ordinary events like bowling so entertaining even non-sports fans would tune in to watch on any given weekend. ABC’s sports coverage made the other networks look like high school media projects. In the late 70′s ABC put Arledge in charge | Read More »
The Sarah Palin RocknRoll Tour to Save the GOP
The folks at Red State are always soliciting new ideas for rebuilding the party and regaining control of our country. I propose the Sarah Palin RocknRoll Tour to Save the GOP featuring Sarah Palin, the Lt. Dan Band and other commit artists. The tour would consist of a series of dates and venues through out the country of course and the money raised would go | Read More »
It’s time for the Adopt a Congressman Program
It’s great to get our opinions out on RedState and share ideas. It would be even greater if we put those ideas to work. I suggest that RedState (or some other group with the resources) set up an Adopt a Congressman Program (this includes Senators). Yes I can hear the groans already, but let’s think about this for a moment. We don’t have to wait | Read More »
Student fights for free speech
We have to applaud the courage of this young man. A student is suing Los Angeles City College over an incident in which a professor refused to let him finish a speech against gay marriage, according to the Los Angeles Times. The professor allegedly called the student a “fascist bastard” for speaking out against gay marriage. The professor threatened to have the student expelled after | Read More »
Has Obama already failed?
The Financial Times has generally been positive and “hopeful” about our new leadership, but the performance of the Obama Administration has them deeply concerned. They think that the Obama team is a little too “hopeful” and not serious enough. In spite of their overall approval of Obama you can’t miss the subtext of the article. It is the lack of focus and experience they have | Read More »
Fact checking Obama
The AP did a quick fact check of Obama’s presser last night focusing on the the pork and jobs. Obama has been less than forthright with the public and the press conference demonstrated that very clearly. One of the bigger canards the Dems and Obama have been using to cause a stampede among the herd is that this is the worst economic crisis since the | Read More »
A Practical Case for Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin is a “force of nature.” These are not my words, but the words of some die hard feminists like Camille Paglia and others like the former editor of Ms. Magazine or the president of Los Angeles NOW. Paglia, a staunch Obama supporter, had this to say in one of her Slate columns: I like Sarah Palin, and I’ve heartily enjoyed her arrival on | Read More »
