    Congratulations Reince Priebus

    He’s not the guy a lot of tea party activists wanted nationwide, but I’ve been inundated with calls from ardent defenders of his this past week from Wisconsin who say he was a significant player in the profound turn around up there.That so many have called this week to support him — people who are authentically and unquestionably grassroots — is encouraging.Congratulations to Reince Priebus, the | Read More »

    The President’s Speech and Killing Sarah Palin

    What was billed as a “memorial service” in Arizona last night was more of a pep-rally and celebration of life. It was complete with sloganeering, bumper stickers, and t-shirts.It is what was needed.What’s more, Mr. Obama gave a stunning rebuke to his own base who’ve engaged in a horrific blame game all week.

    Jonathan Pollard

    I have known Jennifer Rubin for a while and really like her, but I am terribly befuddled about her Washington Post blog “Right Turn.” It has descended into advocacy of getting the traitor Jonathan Pollard out of prison.First, I have no idea why that has anything to do with coverage of conservatives and secondly, I think she’s gone a bridge too far now.Certainly there are | Read More »
