    Who’s to Blame for the “Ferguson Effect”?

    Who's to Blame for the "Ferguson Effect"?

    The Daily Caller ran a piece this weekend by a cop who apparently works on the West Coast somewhere explaining how Ferguson has made his job more difficult because of the different ways the citizenry reacts to the police post-Ferguson. The whole article is worth reading for a cop’s perspective on what happens when the citizenry loses respect for cops. The central thesis of the | Read More »

    Mark Pryor’s Dumb, Job-Killing Legislation

    Mark Pryor's Dumb, Job-Killing Legislation

    As a former resident of Arkansas, I have followed the career of pretty closely over the years. During all that time, Pryor’s M.O. has not really changed – “Aw shucks” + “Jesus” + southern accent = wins. Pryor has long avoided the Republican whitewash of Arkansas by being relatively low key about the way that he almost always votes with Democrats on controversial issues while | Read More »

    Ebola and the Stench of Democrat Desperation

    Ebola and the Stench of Democrat Desperation

    One of the most fascinating things to me during this election season has been the media’s studious obliviousness to the obvious stench of desperation surrounding Democrat campaigns. By comparison to the Republican disaster of 2006, the Democrats are showing an equally obvious amount of fleeing the Democrat brand ID, the Democrat President, and Democrat policies, and an equally obvious amount of fetid desperation in their | Read More »

    The New Republic Stumps for Republicans

    The New Republic Stumps for Republicans

    Things have gotten pretty bad for the Democrats when the The New Republic writes an article like this arguing that Republicans should take control of the Senate. Of course, the piece is written as a scare piece for Democrats trying to encourage them to get out and vote to avoid a parade of horribles that will occur if Republicans take over. Unfortunately, TNR misses two | Read More »

    BREAKING: Denver Post Endorses Cory Gardner

    I have the feeling that these days, newspaper endorsements move the needle very little if any at all in terms of actual voter behavior. However, the main reason for this is that they tend to be overwhelmingly rubber stamps for Democrat candidates. When a major metropolitan newspaper in a purple state like Colorado endorses a Republican – and does so with several withering broadsides at | Read More »

    Greg Orman is an Empty Democrat Suit

    Greg Orman is an Empty Democrat Suit

    Obviously, we are not huge fans of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) around here. His weaknesses, which are being exposed in the general, are exactly the reason most conservatives supported Milton Wolf in the primary. But alleged independent Greg Orman has really and truly exposed himself as the worse option in Kansas due to his serial vapidity and dishonesty. This piece lays out the case that | Read More »

    The Soft Bigotry of Democrat Voting Pitches

    The Soft Bigotry of Democrat Voting Pitches

    Someone named Maria T. Cardona, a self-proclaimed “veteran Democrat political consultant,” has a piece at RCP today urging Latino voters to get out and vote this fall. Wait, that’s not exactly correct, she’s actually engaging in some blandly offensive assumptions and hoping to drum up more Democrat votes. Her piece, which assumes that all Latino voters would prefer “comprehensive immigration reform,” offers two basic reaasons | Read More »

    Meghan McCain is a Spoiled Harpy

    One of the unfortunate things that happens when a government agency comes under some well-justified scrutiny for legitimate screw ups is that people with a completely unjustified axe to grind tend to pile on and their infantile complaints tend to get taken as seriously as the legitimate ones. And so it is with the Secret Service, which has come under well-deserved fire in the last | Read More »

    Mark Udall is an Abortion Extremist

    Mark Udall is an Abortion Extremist

    Perhaps the most popular Democrat political gambit for the last 25 years has been to accuse every Republican of being an extremist on abortion. Democrats have had some measure of success at this since the media basically shares their views on abortion, by and large. Even the rare media person who tilts center-right overall tends to be pro-choice. Strong pro-lifers in the media are virtually | Read More »

    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 »
