    Lindsey Lohan Republicans

    I love Marc Thiessen columns at the Washington Post like I love moon pies and Coca-Cola — a most excellent combination of fine dining in the South.His column on Lindsey Lohan Republicans is no different. The fact is that Republican leaders in the House are looking toward a compromise on earmarks that would fall short of a total ban. Those advocating such a compromise say | Read More »

    What Was Before Is Again

    The New York Times ran an article over the weekend that the House of Representatives is still not in the hands of the GOP. A Newsweek survey came out with an oddity of a generic ballot answer. Gallup has been jumping all over the place.Had I a show, I’d say “roll the tape.” Instead, you’ll have to settle for this.Here’s Charlie Cook’s review of the | Read More »

    A few points to consider as you wake up

    The ‘One Nation’ rally happened this weekend. The majority of the crowd was bussed in by union groups and other leftwing groups.

Tea party groups and Glenn Beck did not on | Read More »

    The last time Harry Reid ran for the Senate the Las Vegas Review Journal endorsed him.Not this time. Nevada’s largest newspaper has gone all in with Sharron Angle. In its endorsement, the newspaper deemed the election a clear choice between Angle, who supports limited government, and what it described as Washington’s big spending and partisan bickering.The editorial says Reid hitched his fortunes to President Barack | Read More »

    John Thune’s Tan Is Starting to Resemble Toast

    Let’s be honest for a minute. John Thune is a great United States Senator from South Dakota. But the only reason people talk about him for President is because he’s a good looking guy in a city full of lesser looking people, is tall, and has an attractive wife.Other than that his greatest accomplishments are doing nothing. But he gives a great talk about biennial | Read More »
