    From the Mail Bag

    The atheists and twinkie eaters at Media Matters, also known as the Westboro Baptist D.C. Branch, are enraged that I dared mention Jesus and the absence of discussing him in the debate over Arizona. For a great taste of it, you should check my twitter feed. But having just received this, it gives you a good taste of the Godless: From: Karl Schneider Subject: F**k | Read More »


    The Blame Game and my Tirade

    So Cornell Belcher, as I mentioned earlier, wanted to accuse the tea party movement and the right of being much more vitriolic than the left.That kind of set me on a tirade. With great demand from many of you, CNN was kind enough to get the video into an embeddable file. Here now is my tirade:


    Suddenly the Media is Concerned About Tone

    Last night on John King USA I tried very hard to keep my blood from boiling. Cornell Belcher, a very good guy, tried to claim that the right’s history of rhetoric is worse than the left’s.I’ll meet you half way on that, just for the sake of argument, and say the left and right can at times be equally vile, but only for the sake | Read More »

    Jonathan Pollard

    I have known Jennifer Rubin for a while and really like her, but I am terribly befuddled about her Washington Post blog “Right Turn.” It has descended into advocacy of getting the traitor Jonathan Pollard out of prison.First, I have no idea why that has anything to do with coverage of conservatives and secondly, I think she’s gone a bridge too far now.Certainly there are | Read More »

    What’s Missing

    “Whether you believe it or not, here is the reality: beyond us is a world we cannot see with our eyes — a world of very real angels and very real demons, of a very real God and a very real devil. ”I am tired of talking about the Arizona shooting.

    Thought for the Day Open Thread

    When John F. Kennedy was assassinated, one of the first thoughts of many was that it was an ultra-right winger who did. Turned out to be a Karl Marx fan.When Congresswoman Giffords was shot, immediately the media wanted to discuss heated rhetoric and the tea parties. Turned out the shooter is a Karl Marx fan.Prior to Ronald Reagan’s attempted assassination, many lefties were very vocal | Read More »

    Are RNC Committeemen Even Listening?

    I wonder if Republican Committeemen are even listening to the Republican grassroots. Or do they just think they know best? That’s what they thought two years ago. They thought the RNC needed a black man as the face of the Republican Party to take on Barack Obama. They thought the consultants knew best.Now look at where we are. Maybe, just maybe, if the Republican Committeemen | Read More »

    I’m going to make a political point now

    For those still attacking Sarah Palin for daring to use the word “targets” and maps against Democrats, including Gabrielle Giffords, please note that the DLC and DCCC, the D is for “Democratic”, also had maps with targets in earlier years. Likewise Markos Moulitsas of the Daily Kos targetted Gabrielle Giffords himself. The self-serving attack over the use of maps and the word “target” is both | Read More »
