    Stopping Sarah Palin

    Much has been made of this story about Republicans attacking Sarah Palin and trying to stop her.There have been some ferocious denials today about it. Many would-be 2012 candidates have denounced it, etc.Here are the facts: there is a significant, though small contingent of heavily anti-Palin forces at the upper echelons of the Establishment GOP in Washington.A good number of them are actually Hill staffers | Read More »

    Assessing Joe Miller

    A lot of people have accused Joe Miller in Alaska of running a “paranoid” campaign. I admit that I’ve thought it.Turns out he has been right to do so.We have the local CBS affiliate in Alaska out to get him — caught on tape no less.We have John Cornyn on TV giving a muddled message about who he supports, forcing the NRSC to come out and | Read More »

    Delegitimizing The Victories: The Politics of the Angry White Male

    “It will be easier for the Democrats to believe in a grand conspiracy that stole the election, than to accept rejection by the American people.” Conservatives will be fighting on two fronts after today. First, Establishment Republicans will be peddling stories, as they have in the past week, that conservative gains in the Senate were really not significant compared to the Establishment pickups.We’ll deal with | Read More »

    This is How ABC News Treats Conservatives

    ABC News was going to have Arianna Huffington and Andrew Breitbart on TV on election night to discuss American politics, etc. Breitbart, at least, was going to be involved in a digital town hall. The television anchors would regularly go into the townhall, talk to the reporters, talk to Breitbart, etc.But the left soiled their collectivist shorts over the idea that the man who brought | Read More »

    An Open Letter to the Freshman Republican Victors

    “Remember, as much as McConnell, Alexander, Boehner, Cantor, etc. did for you, you are more important to them than they are to you. But for you, they would still be in the minority.” I am putting this up the Sunday before the election because in the noise and hubbub after the election it will be drowned out and it is very, very important.

    Leftwing Thumbsuckers and the Politics of Outrage Over Andrew Breitbart

    The left is perfectly fine with George Stephanopoulos being an “objective” newsman on ABC News. The Politico, earlier this year, ran two articles about coordination between then White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, James Carville, Paul Begala, and Stephanopoulos. One article noted the four trade regular phone calls. Emanuel told the Politico the calls “are about what’s happening, what the implications are of what’s | Read More »

    Where Anecdote Is Not Data, But . . .

    We should never confuse anecdotes for data, but I’ve got a funny one.I got called up to New York on the spur of the moment this past week for CNN so I ran out to early voting. I was somewhat stunned by the high number of black voters doing early voting.In any event, I stood in line in front of a black preacher from the | Read More »

FedEx and UPS have been discovering suspicious packages from overseas throughout the day.Luckily, the planes grounded in Philly and Newark had no explosives on them.It is important | Read More »
