Did Fred Hiatt Change the Mission and Just Not Tell Anyone?
Conservatives have come to expect liberal organizations to hire purported “conservatives” to cover the conservative movement in a way that self-affirms liberal notions of conservative neanderthal-ism. But there is a problem in Jennifer Rubin covering conservatives at the Washington Post. According to the Post’s ombudsman, Patrick Pexton, editorial page editor Fred Hiatt hired Rubin “to be an opinion blogger who would appeal to conservatives and | Read More »

The crux of the article is the title — even critics of the safety net increasingly depend on it.The article profiles a number of people who take advantage of the federal social safety net and are increasingly resentful of it. The solutions on fixing it vary. The angry, for | Read More »

He made up stories and eventually he was caught. I read somewhere he wants to be a lawyer now, but his contrition is in doubt.One of the things he | Read More »
Today House Republicans Are Set To Approve Barack Obama’s Latest Stimulus Plan
“Call your Congressman today at 202-224-3121 and tell him to oppose H.R. 7, the American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act.” It is sad that we have gotten here, but House Republicans, including conservative stalwarts like Jim Jordan of Ohio, are set to pass Barack Obama’s latest stimulus plan. Except they are calling it John Boehner’s “Highway Bill.” Consider, however that Barack Obama’s budget, unveiled yesterday, | Read More »

The Uber Conservative
In his CPAC speech, Mitt Romney used “conservative” more than any other word except “President.” Just how many times?My radio producer Shane Backler cut up his speech and put them all together.
Dylan Byers of Politico Defends Media Matters While Ignoring Herman Cain
We should not be surprised Dylan Byers is defending Media Matters over at the Politico. I’m sure he does not want the spotlight shifting to him and the Politico for continually running Media Matters generated hit jobs. Byers himself cited Media Maters bashing Dana Loesch. He repurposed a Media Matters hit job on George Will recently too. He makes sure we all see both Greg | Read More »
