    With a hat tip to my friend Charlie for the title, you might have noticed Rick Santorum is now a declared Presidential candidate.The buzz on his announcement has been, to be charitable, non-existent on the series of tubes known as the internet.

    Stand with Heritage

    The crisis we conservatives have been warning the country about for decades is upon us. It is happening in this generation . . . in this Congress . . . and the results could be catastrophic.

Most, if not all, have in passing mentioned the issue.But the time for mentioning the issue in passing is over. The Dow Industrials have fallen. The Fed wants to print more money. Obama is gutting NASA’s space mission to socialize healthcare and fund global warming nonsense. | Read More »

    Mike Haridopolos Needs To Put Whatever He Uses On His Hair Into His Spine

    This is embarrasing. This morning, Haridopolos got thrown off a Florida radio show for going wobbly on the Paul Ryan Medicare plan, including not wanting to say yes or no on whether he supports it. Then, his campaign issued a press release, which you can read below the fold. The key nugget of which is this line, “I absolutely support the goals of the Ryan | Read More »
