Being a liberal means never having to say you’re sorry [Updated with a note from Ezra]
Back in 2005, when the GOP kept getting frustrated by Democrat filibusters, the GOP came up with what they called the “constitutional option” to end the filibuster. Democrats and the media referred to it as the “nuclear option.” Well, fast forward to today and lefty Ezra Klein is all in favor of the constitutional option.*

Schadenfreude Hour: Mississippi Democrats Implode
My friend Kingfish brings word of the implosion of the Mississippi Democratic Party. It is in full scale meltdown because the Chairman of the Mississippi Democratic Party’s wife struck up an affair with an elected Democrat. Jamie Franks, the state chairman, is getting divorced from his wife. His wife has been having an affair with Mike Scott, the school superintendent in Lee County, MS and | Read More »
The Facts About the Bush Tax Cuts
A lot of the media and all of the Democrats seem to forget one simple fact about the Bush tax cuts: they were passed in response to a recession occurring as George W. Bush and Dick Cheney entered office. Moe Lane wrote an excellent post about the impact of the Democrats not extending the Bush tax cuts, but what about what they actually did. We | Read More »

Does Georgia Right to Life Now Support Embryonic Stem Cell Research?
I am guessing Dan Becker and Georgia Right to Life are just fine and dandy with embryonic stem cell research. They don’t like Karen Handel funding cervical cancer screenings, but they love them some Nathan Deal despite his support for a Henry Waxman backed piece of legislation funneling $500 million to the abortion industry explicitly for abortions. Well, Nathan Deal also signed on to NANCY | Read More »

Why Tiahrt Matters
A millimeter. A centimeter. An inch. They are all measures of distance. Even the smallest of them measures some distance. Our job this year as conservatives is to put some distance between us and the left. In doing so, it is our job to push the Senate Republican to the right. Every inch counts when dealing with 100 senators and 40 or 50 Republicans. Every | Read More »
Taxation Without Representation
On this day in 1764, James Otis, Jr., a Massachusetts lawyer, published his thoughts on taxation, coining the phrase “taxation without representation” in the process. Consider this an open thread.

Georgia Right To Life Supports Candidate Who Voted For Abortion Funding
Hypocrisy, thy name is Georgia Right to Life. Today, Georgia Right to Life attacked Georgia gubernatorial candidate Karen Handel for funding Planned Parenthood when Handel chaired the Fulton County Commission in Georgia. The funding had actually been approved before Handel got there and the money was designated for cancer screenings with Planned Parenthood doing the cancer screenings instead of the county.

Your money? The government’s “income”
There was an interesting comment made on the floor of the United States Senate yesterday. I first noticed in from Senator Jim DeMint’s twitter feed. DeMint tweeted, “Sen. Dorgan just said a vote for tax cuts is a vote to ‘reduce this country’s income. To Democrats, it’s the government’s money. Not yours.” Really? I mean it wouldn’t surprise me, but we rarely hear the Democrats | Read More »
