As Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan comes to a final decision about running for president, several top national conservatives are encouraging him to join the race. Ryan, who has been seriously but quietly considering a...

That two different readers would photograph and send me photos of the same vehicle over seven months apart?  Different angles and lighting conditions.

Take a look at the vehicle in this post from January 3, 2011, sent by reader Kathryn, and this photo sent to me yesterday by reader Alex, who writes:

Love your website.  Bumper stickers are from a parking lot in Toledo Ohio.  BTW Toledo is leaning Kasich which should bode well for next year.  I believe Northwest Ohio will be a battle ground and deciding factor for SB 5 in November, it will be very contentious here.  Boots on the ground if you  have any interest.

Post-mortem –  No excuses or hand holding.  Bad News:  Dems held both their seats, and Republicans hold the Senate by only one seat.   Good News:  Republicans hold the Governorship, Senate and Assembly, and the big things have been done, including the collective bargaining law, the budget and the redistricting.  The Dem gains...

There is a very interesting blog post at Political Math (via Instapundit) explaining why the attacks on Rick Perry based on Texas’ job growth will fail.

The attack on Perry, which the Axelrod/Plouffe message machine is pushing, is that Texas still has unemployment near the national average, any job growth is the result of...

This would be good, via WaPo:

Much of the speculation about Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s political future has focused on whether the Republican who has made a name for himself suing the federal government would run for re-election, or for governor in 2013

But in an interview with The Washington Post, Cuccinelli...

As readers know, I’ve been blogging about the Recall (Robert) Wirch effort for several months, long before the national media paid attention to the fact that there were Democratic State Senators in Wisconsin subject to recall.

Here are links to some (but not all) of my posts regarding Recall Wirch:

Warren Buffett has an op-ed in The NY Times bemoaning the fact that he and other super-wealthy investors pay a lower percentage of their income in taxes than their secretaries and other lower-paid staff members.  This is an argument frequently heard from Democrats.

But in making that argument Buffett misleadingly lumps federal income...

I see that Mitt Romney has dubbed Obama’s bus tour the Magical Misery Tour.

How about these alternatives:

  • The Driving Through Flyover Country Tour.
  • The “So This Is How The Common People Travel” Tour.
  • The Make Sure They Don’t Cling To The Bus Tour.
  • The “This Bus Tour Created or Saved 2,000,000 Jobs” Tour.

Surely you could do better.
