    No Time to Go Wobbly: It’s Time to Follow the New Iron Ladies Into Battle

    As the two prepared for the first Gulf war, Margaret Thatcher famously told George H.W. Bush “this is no time to go wobbly.” Well, I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to believe that we are now fully engaged in a political war for the very future of our nation.

    They called Nikki Haley a whore. They called her a raghead. Now they better start practicing calling her Governor.Nikki Haley came within a percentage point or two of avoiding a runoff for the Republican nomination in South Carolina.

We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers so I know whose ass to kick.” No seriously. Read it again. “I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar. We talk to | Read More »

    Even Government Propaganda Can’t Save Obamacare

    Your federal tax dollars are being used to send out this fancy Medicare brochure (PDF) to tout the glories and benefits of our Dear Leader’s health care deform plan.If a Republican had done this, Henry Waxman would be demanding an investigation while drafting articles of impeachment.

The benefit of a RedState Gathering is pretty simple — candidates who show up pay their own way and commit to hanging out, not just talking down to you from a stage. It’s cheap. It’s grassroots. It’s a | Read More »
