Rick Santorum Knows How To Fix Global Warming.
In case anyone was wondering, Global Warming is a problem. It is a problem because people are poorly informed by the media and believe the “settled science.” This science consists of “known facts” designed to alarm us into making economically stupid decisions that give way too much power to dictatorial bureaucrats. But there is a way for us to save our beleaguered planet. GOP Candidate | Read More »
Voter ID and Voter Contempt.
It is hard to imagine a more demeaning statement about black America than labeling demands that all voters show a photo ID anti-black. – Dennis Prager (HT: National Review) Wow!

Barack Obama’s Promises and the Geraghty Effect
As I may have mentioned a time or two, all statements from Barack Obama come with an expiration date. All of them. – Jim Geraghty (HT:NRO) Like the warranties sold by Radio Shack or a put option on the NYSE, Barack Obama’s solemn political promises are heartfelt.

We Can Now Afford One of the Two Americas, But Not Both
Redstate Colleague Moe Lane gives us an exquisitely humorous explanation of how Democrat Peter Welch got exactly the vote he wrote Speaker Boehner and requested in the House of Representatives. The House of Representatives voted 318-97 against adding $2.3Tr to the US debt ceiling without offsetting reductions in Federal expenditures. Rhetorical idiocy soon ensued. President Obama’s Baghdad Bob, Jay Carney, issued the following officially sanctioned | Read More »
The Political Gnosticism of “Yes We Can!”
Don’t Immanentize the Eschaton. – William F. Buckley (HT: Culturewars.com) A lot of people think Barack Obama has pretty much performed a shameful act of biotic reproduction with the poodle when it comes to his reelection bid.

War Is Preferable In the Middle East To The Peace Most Likely To Be Imposed
It was the former Beatle, John Lennon, who famously sung in his Christmas Carol “Happy Christmas” “War is over, if you want it.” His sentiment, I believe was genuine and decent. John Lennon was generally a good, yet misinformed person; who hated seeing people getting blown up by airstrikes on the TV News. However, his lyric contained a vital logical fallacy. He concluded correctly that | Read More »

Sarah Palin Hits David Gregory’s Best Curveball Out Of the Yard
Newt Gingrich got one thing magnificently right last week. He called Barack Obama “The Food Stamp President.” Newt’s old; a bit behind the times. It should have been “The EBT-Card President.” Still, the shoe fits, and Obama should get stuck wearing it in November 2012. The American Left, with its typical intellectual brilliance, assumed that Newt Gingrich only called Barack Obama “President Food Stamp” because | Read More »
The Two Amerikas of Obamacare
I have a nagging sense, and think I have accurately observed, that many of these people have made a separate peace.…I suspect that history, including great historical novelists of the future, will look back and see that many of our elites simply decided to enjoy their lives while they waited for the next chapter of trouble. And that they consciously, or unconsciously, took grim comfort | Read More »
The Funny, Funny Lady Named Donna Brazile

Let the GOP Pre-Primaries Be a Darwinian Flush
Sometimes some of the most interesting and correct ideas about politics come from people who are not talking directly about politics. A recent example of this occurred when J. Kyle Bass of Hyman Securities surveyed the scene immediately after the housing bubble popped. He offered the following analysis. The only way to solve this problem is to go THROUGH IT. We know it isn’t politically | Read More »
The Green Newt Must Quickly Go Extinct
It was 10 April 2007. Senator Kerry and Former Congressman Newt Gingrich appeared to debate one another on Global Warming. Newt Gingrich left John Kerry flabbergasted.

Gingrich made the following statement during | Read More »
