Wolf Blitzer started the night by confirming that Wolf really was his first name.

In the introductory statements, Mitt Romney confirmed that Mitt was his first name.

Except that it’s not, it’s Willard. Which leads to the Tweet of the Night from @AshleyRParker:

Wolf Blitzer’s terrible burden

As this goes to post, Wolf Blitzer is preparing carefully and cautiously for the Republican foreign policy / national security debate he will be moderating tonight on CNN.

The questions were written long ago, but they are being checked and rechecked again.  No chances can be taken tonight.

The hopes of the Beltway Republican...

Steve Haywood at Power Line (h/t Instapundit) has a good post pointing out how the Occupy movement moved quickly from Woodstock to Altamont:

Numerous observers have pointed out how the media and liberals (sorry for the redundancy) lavished sympathy on Occupy Wall Street until it became untenable to continue, after which they...

Yes, there is another debate tonight.  I haven’t decided whether to go “live” or do commentary at the breaks.

While it would be easy to complain about yet another debate, I think the debates have been worthwhile in sorting out the candidates.  Tonight will be the chance to gang up on Newt,...

What kind of movement calls female supporters “white bitches”?  And what type of women take that to be a term of endearment?

Shadowy Union SuperPAC Joins Alan Grayson As Accidental LI Advertisers

Fresh off seeing Alan Grayson ads all over conservative blogs (including LI), I’m now seeing an independent expenditure campaign against Scott Brown that highlights his conservative votes.

Ironically, it might even be helpful to Brown for such ads to appear on sometimes-skeptical conservative sites to highlight his conservative votes and emphasize how...

From the AP: 

With the collapse of the deficit-cutting supercommittee, Congress’ emergency backup budget-cutting plan now is supposed to take over — automatic, across-the-board spending reductions of roughly $1 trillion from military and well as domestic government programs.

But the big federal deficit reductions that are to be triggered by Monday’s supercommittee collapse...

Not that anyone who should try to find out about the distinction would care, but Ayn Rand ≠ libertarianism.

I recently had an email forwarded to me by a friend on an “Occupy” listserve from an academic with the subject line “A little something for the libertarians” with a copy/paste of an article

There is a belief on the right that John McCain lost because he was too liberal and conservatives chose to stay home on election day. Some who hold this belief threaten to go Scozzafava on the GOP and refuse to work to stop Obama if Romney (or in fewer cases, even...

Dr. Melissa Clouthier writing about An Indictment Of Right Leaning Journalism By Ben Domenech:
