    The Democrats Hope You Are an Idiot

    The Democrats Hope You Are an Idiot

    The crop of Democrats up for election right now were last elected in 2008. For most of the actually vulnerable Democrats, this was the first time they ran for election. All elected Democrats are always at least secretly opposed to any measures that actually promote the national security of the United States of America, and given the mood of the country in 2008 they were | Read More »

    Gee, How Could President Obama Possibly Have Underestimated ISIS?

    Gee, How Could President Obama Possibly Have Underestimated ISIS?

    In case you missed it, on 60 Minutes Sunday, President Obama threw the intelligence community under the bus by claiming that Jim Clapper, et al dropped the ball in assessing the threat that ISIS posed. This is not the first time Obama has tried to blame his subordinates for providing him with faulty information about ISIS. When confronted with the manifest error of his comment | Read More »

    President Obama’s Asinine Abdication of Responsibility on Iraq

    President Obama's Asinine Abdication of Responsibility on Iraq

    In case you missed it last night, President Obama acknowledged (sort of) that mistakes were made [by everyone but himself] in assessing the threat level that ISIS posed to the stability of Iraq and the entire region. Some low level employees in a rogue office in Cincinnati have once again conspired to create bad headlines for the President, but definitely no one should suggest that | Read More »

    Let’s Not Arm Anyone in Syria

    Let's Not Arm Anyone in Syria

    Sending guns instead of armies to support a cause has a lengthy and storied history in America, especially when American politicians have perceived that public support might not exist for actual American lives being spent on a cause that Americans nonetheless marginally support. Other Western nations have also used this to great effect over the years as well. Why bear the political cost of getting | Read More »

    Media Bias (Again) Shines Through in Coverage of Joe Biden’s Anti-Semitic Slur

    Media Bias (Again) Shines Through in Coverage of Joe Biden's Anti-Semitic Slur

    In case you missed it (and you probably did, unless you are a very close follower of the news), Joe Biden was forced to apologize today for using the anti-Semitic slur “Shylock” to describe what he considered to be shady bankers. Look, Joe Biden is stupid and says stupid things and many of those stupid things are racially insensitive. Jewish people have just joined a | Read More »

    Mary Landrieu Welcomes Hispanics to the New Democrat Plantation

    Mary Landrieu Welcomes Hispanics to the New Democrat Plantation

    For years the Democrats have operated their party like a plantation, where black voters in particular are expected to be present but not ever actually given anything in return. Now they appear ready to try the same trick with pro-immigration reform Hispanics, in the service of saving Mary Landrieu’s Senate career. As I am sure you know, President Obama had planned to implement a sweeping | Read More »

    Generic Congressional Vote Starting to Look Ugly for Democrats

    Generic Congressional Vote Starting to Look Ugly for Democrats

    Conventional wisdom about this midterm election is that while Democrats are defending difficult turf in the Senate and face possible substantial losses, the redistricting after the 2010 census eliminated significant numbers of meaningfully competitive House seats, which should prevent an equivalent wave from forming in the House. The way the generic Congressional vote polls are starting to look, the Democrats better hope that this is | Read More »

    Alex Wagner, Eugenics, and Brainwashing

    Alex Wagner, Eugenics, and Brainwashing

    Via Caleb Howe comes this astonishing clip of MSNBC host Alex Wagner showing some justified concern about how eugenics is still practiced even today. Amazingly, however, she seems to believe that the most important means through which eugenics is practiced today is actually important to the prevention of eugenics. On MSNBC’s Now with Alex Wagner on Monday, the host unleashed a tirade at Republicans over their supposed | Read More »

    Iowa CBS Affiliate Runs Free Ad for Bruce Braley

    Iowa CBS Affiliate Runs Free Ad for Bruce Braley

    You sort of expect liberal media bias at the national level but this astounding segment from a local CBS affiliate out of Cedar Rapids, Iowa ought to count as a donation in kind to Democrat Bruce Braley. Under the guise of “reporting news,” watch as this segment gives the uninterrupted stage to Braley and his surrogates:   Nary a word from or about Joni Ernst | Read More »

    Will the GOP Snatch Defeat from the Jaws of Victory on Immigration?

    Will the GOP Snatch Defeat from the Jaws of Victory on Immigration?

    For the first time in several years the GOP has opened a polling lead on who voters trust more to handle immigration, a clear reaction to President Obama’s overreach on the issue. However, the responses indicate a more nuanced view of immigration policy than this headline might suggest: Now, 34 percent of voters in the most competitive House and Senate races say they trust the | Read More »

    Mark Udall (D-CO) is Scared to Debate on Television

    Mark Udall (D-CO) is Scared to Debate on Television

    Mark Udall is not playing to win; he is playing not to lose. Udall made it official last night that he will not debate Cory Gardner on television at any point during the campaign. For a guy who is clinging to a tenuous lead in the last two months of a campaign, this cannot inspire confidence in his supporters. Instead of getting an hour of | Read More »

    They Told Me If I Voted for the Establishment, This Would Not Happen

    They Told Me If I Voted for the Establishment, This Would Not Happen

    In this year’s Republican Senate primaries, the establishment went full nuclear on grassroots candidates and the voters that supported them, burning bridges with committed activists and engaging in shameful Democrat tactics to slander TEA Party candidates along with anyone who worked with them or for them. The ostensible reason for this absurd, scorched-earth campaign was the stated belief that TEA Party campaigns had cost Republicans | Read More »

    We’ll Probably Get Fooled Again

    We'll Probably Get Fooled Again

    The Washington Post and ABC have conducted a joint poll which asked respondents to rate Obama’s presidency on whether it has been a “failure” or a “success.” Note that this question is different conceptually from whether you approve or disapprove of the job someone is doing as President, which indicates current trajectory rather than overall performance. The results nonetheless were probably about what you’d expect: | Read More »

    Harry Reid Trolls Himself

    Harry Reid Trolls Himself

    Harry Reid and other Democrats are mad at Republicans. The reason? Republicans have allowed a vote on the Bernie Sanders/Tom Udall anti-Koch Brothers constitutional amendment. Seriously. Via Politico: Many of the Republicans only voted for the bill to foul up Democrats’ pre-election messaging schedule, freezing precious Senate floor time for a measure that ultimately has no chance of securing the two-thirds support necessary in both | Read More »

    Ray Rice, Abortion, and Being Led About by the Viscera

    The gossip web rag TMZ released video this morning of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in the elevator of the Revel Casino in Atlantic City. I’m not going to embed the video in this post; if you are curious enough to actually see it you can Google it and see several versions of it that are variously enhanced. It appears to Palmer and | Read More »
