Rand Paul and his Lickspittles Strike Again

    Rand Paul and his Lickspittles Strike Again

    Last Friday, Rand Paul made waves with all the wrong people when he announced after meeting with some black pastors that the GOP needs to “lay off” Voter ID laws because “it’s offending people.” According to the story, Paul does not dispute that Voter ID laws are meritorious or that voter fraud is real; in fact, he is quoted as acknowledging that dead people vote, | Read More »

    The Official End of “If You Like Your Doctor, You Can Keep Your Doctor.”

    The Official End of "If You Like Your Doctor, You Can Keep Your Doctor."

    Via Mark Knoller, WebMD has posted a video of an interview of Obama consisting of questions asked by WebMD users about Obamacare. Notably, in this interview, Obama was finally forced to concede what conservative health policy wonks have been saying since before the bill was passed – that under Obamacare, you might not be able to keep your doctor if you like your doctor. Pres | Read More »

    White House: Ukraine Crisis Proves Romney Was Wrong about Russia

    Kudos to the press on this one. I didn’t really think any of them could bring themselves to ask the Obama administration whether Obama regretted his tragic self-beclowing at the second Presidential debate, when he responded to Mitt Romney’s claim that Russia was a geopolitical threat with a “the 80s called and they want their foreign policy back” joke; a joke that both demeaned the | Read More »

    Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards: Does it Matter if We’re Killing Living Humans?

    Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards: Does it Matter if We're Killing Living Humans?

    Cecile Richards is the President of Planned Parenthood, an organization that aborts hundreds of thousands of unborn children a year. You would think, given this, that Cecile Richards would have some sort of coherent philosophical belief about when life begins that would indicate (at least to her) that she doesn’t oversee mass infanticide. You would be wrong: On America with Jorge Ramos this weekend, Cecile | Read More »

    Union Intimidation Continues at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga Plant

    Unions like to claim that management frequently intimidates workers against organizing. The reality, in today’s world, is that management virtually always has a hostile NLRB breathing down its neck at the slightest sign of any technical violation, whereas union intimidation and harassment (which is also prohibited by law) goes largely ignored by the regulatory authorities. A perfect case in point is the plight of workers | Read More »

    In Which @BuzzFeedAndrew Demonstrates What’s Wrong With America

    In Which @BuzzFeedAndrew Demonstrates What's Wrong With America

    Now comes one of the dumbest gotcha pieces I have ever seen, courtesy of Andrew Kaczynski of Buzzfeed. I would customarily paste some of the text here but you would do yourself a favor by actually clicking the link and seeing the huge, screaming type, complete with ridiculous subtitles. The gist of this particular piece of unmitigated nonsense is that Jeff Flake is somehow a | Read More »

    Rand Paul Bails on Bringing Change to Washington

    Rand Paul enjoys talking a big game about being a fundamental change agent in Washington. He likes to line up for publicity stunts like filing a lawsuit against the NSA which will almost certainly be dismissed (and send out handy list-building emails based on these publicity stunts), or staging an almost completely pointless filibuster on drones, but  when it comes to actual accomplishments that have | Read More »

    Democrat Memo: Republicans Oppose Obamacare Because They Support Domestic Abuse

    This is not a joke or a parody. According to Politico, that is literally the message the Democrats are planning to roll out on the campaign trail this fall. I am not at all kidding. Democrats know their biggest problem in this year’s midterm election is Obamacare. So top party operatives have settled on a strategy to try blunting the GOP’s advantage: Tell voters Republicans would make | Read More »

    John Cornyn’s New Ad is Quite Good

    John Cornyn's New Ad is Quite Good

    I’m a big fan of improving our position in the Senate and within the Senate GOP caucus wherever we have a feasible opportunity. This year, we do not have such a feasible opportunity in the TX-Sen race, where John Cornyn is currently facing a challenge from the unserious Steve Stockman. I know that a great many people have problems with Cornyn despite his conservative voting | Read More »

    “We Will Brand Your 8-year-old Kid a Racist for Life.”

    "We Will Brand Your 8-year-old Kid a Racist for Life."

    Via Daniel Hannan comes this horrifying story of parental bullying via some school in the UK called the “Littleton Green Community School.” Apparently last week, parents in this school district received the following letter sent home (of COURSE in Comic Sans): Now, just to say up front, if I had faith in this particular school district, I would probably have zero problem with my child | Read More »

    The New York Times Equates Opposing Obamacare With Slavery

    The New York Times Equates Opposing Obamacare With Slavery

    One does not expect to find insightful, cogent, or fair commentary on the editorial pages of the New York Times. Banal liberalism, provincialism, and insulation from the beliefs of flyover America are standard fare and thus to be expected. But every once in a while, a piece comes along which is so utterly devoid of reason, taste, or linear thought that it deserves to be pointed | Read More »

    President Obama’s “Administrative Fix” Will Make the Problem Worse

    By now you have no doubt heard that President Obama, in a disastrous and meandering news conference, has announced that he will attempt, via executive fiat, to implement something very similar to the Upton Plan, which will purportedly allow (but not require) insurance companies  to continue to offer plans that were made illegal by Obamacare. Without wading into the politics of this move, as a | Read More »

    If This Lunch Isn’t Free, I’m Writing My Congressman

    If This Lunch Isn't Free, I'm Writing My Congressman

    Meet Margaret Davis, who is the reason we can’t have nice things in this country: Margaret Davis of West L.A. voted for President Obama and appreciates the ideas behind theAffordable Care Act. She agrees that everyone should have access to healthcare and no one should be denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions. But here’s the problem: She knows firsthand, as the new law of the | Read More »

    The End of Expectations

    The End of Expectations

    With apologies to non sports fans, allow me to introduce you to the dumbest controversy to hit America since the furor over whether John Bolton once put his hands on his hips while talking to a subordinate. I am talking, of course, about the Jonathan Martin/Richie Incognito Miami Dolphins controversy. Details at this point are still somewhat sketchy, but the basic outlines of the story | Read More »

    The Unbearable Lightness of Being Sports Media

    The Unbearable Lightness of Being Sports Media

    The media is liberal. No one who is not paid by George Soros to say otherwise disputes this any longer. But it is not enough to note that the media is liberal; this is correct, but it is incomplete. They are also lazy, and incompetent at their jobs. I cannot remember the last time I read a news story about a legal case and wasn’t | Read More »
