    Greed & Hippies Properly Understood

    About the only thing these hippies, hipsters, senior citizens who never grew up, and college trust funders out protesting can agree on is that greed is bad.

What they either do not understand or choose to ignore is that greed is not a capitalist invention. Greed | Read More »

    The Bloomberg-Washington Post Debate

    The Bloomberg-Washington Post debate was necessary in the same way a child dying or a puppy being run over are necessary in the chaotic misery of the orbit around the center of the galaxy we slowly endure. All remind us that life isn’t fair, there are terrible tragedies, and sometimes bad things happen to us.But we have endured. And if you haven’t thrown up on | Read More »

    Little Lee Fang Whines About Me Stealing The Hippies’ Thunder #iamthe53

    Poor little Lee Fang. He felt the need to respond to the I Am the 53 stuff and, as he does with pretty much everything he writes, he gets a lot wrong. The three jobs Erickson wants you to believe he scraps by on include occasional paid opinion blogging at, a lucrative television contract with CNN, and a radio gig that paid the previous | Read More »

    Romney’s Own Words

    The Perry campaign has a new web ad out. No word on whether it will be used as a television ad, but we can get a sense of the campaign’s punches from this. Mitt Romney’s campaign says Perry is desperate. Given Perry’s polling lately, that could be an angle — though $15 million on hand will help him get back up in the polls. The | Read More »

    Koch, the Democrats, the Hippies, and Hypocrisy

    The Democrats, rallying to the hippies occupying various streets around the country, have seized on a Bloomberg News story about Koch Industries doing business in Iran. The Democrats want every Republican who has ever taken money from the Kochs to give that money back. Except there are a few problems. Such as, other than it being a political hit against some right-of-center billiionaires, the story | Read More »

After filling in for Hannity and then doing my own radio show, I went out and had a beer and quesidilla and then decided to go see George Clooney’s new movie “Ides of March.”I like good political movies. Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, Alexandra, made one of my favorites, “Journeys with George.” Then there is “The War Room” for | Read More »

    You Perry Fans Really Want to Help Him? Get Him Better Videos

    Today we’ve got a new video from the Rick Perry campaign folks. It hits Mitt Romney pretty hard for his environmental record. The message is sound. But the delivery… well… just watch it. I think the Perry campaign was right to snatch up Pawlenty’s video genius for their earlier video. I hope we see more soon from him. Perry’s gubernatorial campaign had good videos too | Read More »
