    The Fanciful Political Cross Dressing of Charlie Crist

    As the GOP head to Florida, the literal poster boy for trial lawyers in Florida is endorsing Obama. It is not a surprise. Charlie Crist was Barack Obama’s favorite Republican for the longest time. They stood shoulder to shoulder in support of the stimulus.RedState played a great role in helping beat Charlie Crist. Marco Rubio is such an improvementBut I do hope Charlie Crist gets | Read More »

    Alan Rusbridger and the UK’s Guardian Do What British Leftists Do Best: Capitulate

    A week ago the UK’s left leaning Guardian hired RedState co-founder Joshua Trevino to be a regular columnist about American conservatives. Unlike many American publications, the Guardian hired an actual conservative instead of a poseur.But that was too much.The Guardian, you see, is the left’s property. Immediately, some virulently anti-Semitic leftwing activists began an organized campaign against the Guardian because Josh Trevino has a long | Read More »

    Into Our Eighth Year: Welcome to RedState

    I often get credit for being the founder of RedState. Actually, the credit belongs to Josh Trevino, Ben Domenech, and Mike Krempasky. Along the way they added me and put me in charge as each of them took different career paths. Thomas Crown still gets to pull rank and along the way we added Clayton out of necessity and kept him out of friendship. Now | Read More »

    Chairman of the Associated Press . . . Lewinskies Obama . . . Or Something Like That

    You were expecting objectivity? Here’s the Chairman of the Associated Press introducing Barack Obama to an Associated Press meeting:I get the desire to flatter the President of the United States, but really? He might as well have pulled out a blue dress and a cigar.By the way, it is funny to think of the groups that Barack Obama has not deigned to visit and those | Read More »

    On Lance Armstrong

    If you haven’t heard yet, Lance Armstrong has given up on fighting the US Anti-Doping Agency. He’s throwing in the towel. I don’t really have a dog in the fight. I’m never cared much for competitive cycling. But it really does seem horrendous and un-American to me that a quasi-government agency, mostly funded by the government, gets to pretend it is not a part of | Read More »

    Not the Behavior of a Winning Campaign

    The media keeps showing its rear end. Let me just make that clear. If you are a competent reporter, I’m not sure how you cannot be embarrassed by the majority of those in your profession right now covering politics. From Mark Halperin, to Jake Tapper, to Chuck Todd, more journalists are actually now admitting just how pliable the media is when it comes to Barack | Read More »

    This, This, A Thousand Times This

    Finally, someone has seized upon what I think is THE winning narrative in this election cycle.It used to be that if you worked hard enough you could be successful in America. But in Barack Obama’s America, you have to work hard and give to Barack Obama. It’s all about the team you are on, not the work you do.The website Crony Chronicles has put up | Read More »

    Cayman Islands Based Gawker Media Attacks Mitt Romney for Cayman Island Assets

    This is actually pretty hilarious.Gawker, the site that has spent lots of time also ridiculing Sarah Palin and Trig Palin and pretty much writing every other offensive thing you can think of, is now attacking Mitt Romney for having assets based in the Cayman Islands.The Romney camp is gleefully pointing out that Gawker, you may not know, is based in the Cayman Islands.According to Chris | Read More »

    Just a Reminder: Nikki Haley Remains Awesome

    The Myrtle Beach newspaper brings word to conservatives nationwide that Nikki Haley remains awesome.The Governor, who had a series of vetoes overridden by the state legislature because she dared to cut spending, has also wielded her veto pen and seen the legislature back down recently. But, what’s so awesome, is the tears shed by liberals. Get this — she, in the words of the newspaper, | Read More »

    Will Congressman Akin Put His World View Ahead of His Pride?

    The hyperbole from the left over Todd Akin has been disgusting. The man truly believes that children who are conceived out of rape should not be killed. The Bible teaches us that God raised us up from the dust of the earth and stitched us together in our mothers’ wombs. When you believe that, as Congressman Akin does, then it is asking much to tear | Read More »
