    Barack Obama the Birther

    Barack Obama accusing the Chamber of Commerce of laundering foreign money and putting it into the election this year is as crazy as the Birthers demanding to see his birth certificate having convinced themselves Obama is a foreign born manchurian candidate.I largely agree with Glenn Reynolds on this. Obama is raising the specter of foreign influence in the election so his base views the 2010 | Read More »

    I Endorse Tom Tancredo for Governor of Colorado

    If you have not read Nightwister’s post you need to.If the Republicans in Colorado get less than ten percent of the vote in the gubernatorial race, the Colorado GOP will lose its privileged position in Colorado as a major party — a designation that gives it automatic ballot access.This will tremendously impact down ballot races in Colorado long term.At a time when the GOP is | Read More »

    On the Battle Between Midgets vs. Tigers

    “When the book is written on Election 2010, the media will mock the O’Donnell candidacy, but whether she wins or loses she will be a hero in my book.” In the battle between midgets versus tigers, the midgets can win. But a few of the midgets must sacrifice themselves to distract the tigers.First of all, yes, yes I know it should be midgets versus lions, | Read More »

    BREAKING: DSCC Sending Reinforcements to Delaware for Coons

    Is the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee a bit concerned about the potential impact of the Tea Party in Delaware or have the Democrats completely written off Carol Shea-Porter running for New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District?I ask because the Democrats have sent the lady who was on the ground running operations for Carol Shea-Porter’s congressional bid to Delaware to be the Field Director for Chris Coons | Read More »

    David Frum and the Limits to Deviancy

    NewsReal Blog has done an investigative piece into one of its former writers. The writer, Alex Knepper, now writes for David Frum.Alex Knepper is a 20 year old adult who wrote longingly of CHILF’s. You, like I, probably have no idea what that is. If you know what a MILF is (NSFW, but you can google it), substitute the “mother” for “child”.What makes this relevant, | Read More »

    Barack Obama Is ‘A Threat to Our Democracy’

    “[U]nlike the Chamber of Commerce, the Obama campaign most likely accepted into its campaign coffers donations from foreign individuals and never returned the money.” When you’ve hung around with so many people who idealize communism and socialism and loath the United States, you tend to develop an inner-Soviet voice. Barack Obama sure has.He let it slip with Joe the Plumber and Obama’s talk of wealth | Read More »

    The Passion of Melanie Cross

    Like me, Melanie Cross is a graduate of Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law. Like me, Melanie Cross more likely than not had Congressman Jim Marshall as a law school professor.In 2006, Melanie Cross and her husband Ray held a fundraiser for Jim Marshall in their home and contributed $1,000.00 to Marshall’s congressional re-election campaign. Between 2006 and now, Melanie Cross became a | Read More »

    Paying Off the Dead

    This is nuts. The Social Security Administration sent  about 89,000 stimulus payments of $250 each to dead and incarcerated people — but almost half of them were returned, a new inspector-general’s report has found. The kicker is that the stimulus legislation did not include a provision for the Social Security Administration to automatically pull back the money so, in some cases, the money is sitting | Read More »

    Murkowski Yet Again Profits In Office

    I’ve documented before how Lisa Murkowski profited in office through a land deal in which she increased the value of property by directing a federal earmark to build a short road to the property for several millions of dollars.Well, she’s done it again. This time by voting for TARP.Turns out Lisa had substantial investments in several of the companies that benefited the most from TARP. | Read More »

    John Salazar Votes With Nancy Pelosi 97% of the Time. He Says He Never Does.

    With a hat tip to Jim Geraghty we can see just how bad it is for Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats right now. John Salazar, Congressman from Colorado, is being attacked for voting 97% of the time with Nancy Pelosi. NINETY-SEVEN PERCENT. His Republican challenger, Scott Tipton, is tied with Salazar in a race that two years ago Mr. Salazar walked away with. So how | Read More »

    What’s the Point of Obamacare Then?

    To stop all the fussing by major American corporations about the devastating effects of Obamacare, the Obama administration is going to give a bunch of waivers to major corporations so they don’t have to comply with the law.What’s the point of the law then?The reality here is that this will perpetuate Obama policies in furtherance of John Edwards’ two Americas — those with the connections | Read More »
