    From the Mail Bag

    My morning post has set off a firestorm. From: alan@curbking.usSubject: ?Date: June 8, 2012 11:13:39 AM EDTTo: contact@redstate.com I am unsubscribing to your bull shit!

    If Only They Don’t Go Wobbly

    Our Republican Leadership in Washington, D.C. is extremely risk adverse. It is very clear the leadership has convinced itself, despite historic truth, that Newt Gingrich lost his job because of the government shutdown way back when. They do not want to have protracted fights. They want to appear reasonable. They crave the press’s adoration of “grown ups” and “reasonable men.”I expect Barack Obama to capitalize | Read More »
