    Texas Senate Debate: Will Dewhurst Defend His Moderate Record?

    Friday evening is the big live-televised Texas Senate debate — with a twist. After skipping over 30 grassroots candidate debates, the man in the race with the money and name ID, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, is actually scheduled to show up.It’s logical to ask why DewCrist would debate his opponents when he would just be giving them more attention and free air time. This is | Read More »

    Elitism

    Hilary Rosen’s specific point was that Ann Romney, not having been in the workforce outside the home, cannot really relate to women in the workforce. I disagree. Here’s why. In my experience, with both a stay at home mom raising me, my wife a stay at home mom, and many of my friends married to stay at home moms, the stay at home mother typically | Read More »

    Does the Catholic League Use Colons?

    I’m not sure if this is a parody account or not. If it is legitimate, I presume the Catholic League twitter account holder does not use colons in tweets going back to at least April 2nd because his head is so far up his rear end he’s blocking his own colon.I’m referring to this bit of hate in its twitter feed. Today while the right | Read More »

    On Ann Romney and Hilary Rosen and the War on Women

    This has been the typical response of Romney supporters on twitter for my role in “L’Affair Rosen” on CNN last night: JoiseyCop: For you to sit by and let Hillary Rosen slander Ann Romney without challenge shows you be the phony piece of dog shit you are ! @EWErickson I’d mentioned I missed the remark, still dwelling on a previous remark along with some IFB | Read More »

    The Harriet Miers Presidential Campaign

    I am about as excited by the Romney nomination as I am about going to the doctor for a digital rectal exam — necessary at a certain age, but awkward and uncomfortable nonetheless, with a lot of bending over and taking it whether or not you really want it. One of the issues that I have dwelled on for some time is how so many | Read More »

    Democrats Now Say They Never Said ‘War Against Women’?

    If you went to bed oblivious of the news last night, there was a mini-bruhaha over a comment Hilary Rosen, the former head of the RIAA and a DNC Advisor, made to Anderson Cooper on AC360 last night. I was on AC360 with both Hilary and Paul Begala. Hillary said that Ann Romney, a mother of five sons who has had breast cancer and MS, | Read More »

    I Have No Sympathy for Gary Stein

    Gary Stein is an active duty Marine who has taken to Facebook to complain about President Obama. He’s apparently come to RedState too, including ending one post with “NoBama 2012.”As you can see by the comments he didn’t get the reception here that he thought he’d get.I’m a bit appalled by the conservatives who have decided to rally around this guy. Were he doing this | Read More »

    It Was Inevitable. Now Bring on President Both Ways

    Believe it or not, I’ve only been up for about thirty minutes. I’m under the weather today.I would still be asleep except my CNN Alerts on my iPad went nuts. Turns out Rick Santorum is out of the race.It was inevitable. Mitt Romney’s campaign has used a money advantage to shut out the competition. As I said when he won Ohio, Romney will be the | Read More »

    A Self-Inflicted Hubris Shot to the Head

    Mike Wallace is dead.Growing up, I’d spend the summer away from Dubai at my grandparents’ home in Louisiana. Sunday nights were back to back Murder She Wrote and 60 Minutes.Many conservatives would accuse Mike Wallace and 60 Minutes of a liberal view point and shading stories to match their world view. Growing up, 60 Minutes was, to me, journalism done right. They asked questions and | Read More »
