    American Stalin: Alan Grayson And His Views on the Anti-Defamation League, the Military, and Other Things

    You might well say it is extreme hyperbole to call Alan Grayson an American Stalin. You would be right. But it is no different than what Alan Grayson, in extremist, hyperbolic lies, is doing to his opponent Daniel Webster.As has been well documented, Grayson attacked Bill Clinton Daniel Webster for getting academic deferments from Vietnam and then failing his medical exam, thus denying him the | Read More »

    Unlike 1994, They Saw This Year Coming

    “When you are ten points down, you don’t take the A team off the field in the final quarter and replace them with the B team unless you know you are going to get clobbered anyway.” Last night on CNN, Gloria Borger pointed out that the Democrats tell anyone who will listen that they were prepared for this year. Unlike 1994, the Democrats say they | Read More »

    Lisa Murkowski Profits in Office

    When the obituary is finally written on Lisa Murkowski’s political career, one of the key points will be her land deal.Many people, even in Alaska, have not heard about it, but it gives us a glimpse into everything wrong with Lisa Murkowski and why voters rejected her.USA Today has a helpful rundown on the story, which is old, but which has some new interesting facts.Basically, | Read More »

    Connections and Disconnections on the Pledge to Nowhere

    Jonah Goldberg makes a great point at the Corner related to me and my stance on the Pledge to Nowhere. I like and respect Erick Erickson, but after watching the Sunday shows you would think he represents somewhere between 25 and 75 percent of the conservative movement, given the rather absurd prominence his anti-Pledge remarks have been given. Everywhere you turn, we’re told that there’s | Read More »

    I Have A Better Pledge Suggestion

    If I may, I have a better pledge suggestion for the House Republicans. And to keep them happy, they can even make this pledge without mentioning earmarks.Here goes:We, the House Republicans, pledge to do only these things and limit ourselves to doing them in such a way that if normal, non-lawyer Americans cannot comprehend our actions as deriving from one of these then we shall | Read More »

    Perhaps the Most Ridiculous Thing to Come Out of Washington Since George McClellan

    The House Republicans’ “Pledge to America” is out. A thrill will run up the leg of a few Chris Matthews’ types on the right. As Dan noted on Twitter, the Contract with America was 869 words and this is 21 pages. The Contract told you everything you needed to know about how a Republican Congress would be different from a Democrat Congress after 40 years | Read More »

    Orrin Hatch Embraces His Future as a Scalp Collected by the Tea Party Movement

    The Senate Republicans are so upset with Lisa Murkowski for losing her primary then running as a write-in candidate that they have kept her on as ranking member of the Energy Committee.Yes, you read that right. Murkowski will now cause the GOP to spend resources in Alaska they otherwise would not have to and the Senate GOP is repaying her by leaving her as the | Read More »

    The Illusion With America

    The House Republicans are set to unveil the Contract with America Part II, which we already know based on history will be more an illusion than substance. We also know, based on early word about what is in there, that it will be an unmitigated spectacle of wasted opportunity. There will be good points we will all love. But what will be missing will make | Read More »
