A certain someone already has declared that the media got the primaries all wrong, and that it was going to be Mitt all the time. Others have written off Newt and Perry to the dustbin of history. The emerging media consensus, pushed by the mainstream conservative outlets, is that it’s all...
With war in Israel just one shot or rocket or kidnapping away, it’s always worth seeing the faces of the people who will fight it.
Rick Santorum has lived in Iowa for months, visiting every county, street, house, coffee shop, bakery, and front porch waiting for his time to come. It may have arrived, if the recent polling is indicative of reality.
But because Santorum’s surge comes just days before the caucuses, he is the least scrutinized...
The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money. The problem with socialized medicine is that eventually you run out of other people’s money, too.
In Britain, they have run out of other people’s money, so the National Health Service has cut back services. According to this...
I noted the other day Romney’s emerging secrecy problem, including the refusal to release income tax returns even if he becomes the nominee.
This is a break with standard practice for nominees, and creates a no win situation in which Romney makes his income and taxes a central general election issue or...
John Hinderaker of Power Line Blog wrote an endorsement of Mitt Romney on Tuesday. It was about as good an endorsement as I have seen, but kept coming back to one theme, electability.
I don’t think we can judge electability just yet because no one really has challenged Romney in the primaries. Several million...
Not surprisingly, it was dominated by various forms of Derangement Syndrome.
1st Place – “Tea Party” sounds so much nicer than “Mob of Racists and Homophobes.” Obviously, this car owner has been watching MSNBC too often.
2nd Place – This bumper sticker made me throw up a lot.
3rd Place – C*V*L*TY
I’m trying to make this an Iowa free day, which given the polls coming out today probably is a good thing:
- ‘Drive to kidnap IDF soldiers up since Schalit deal’ - Hmmmm, trading 1000 for 1 is a motivator. Who whoulda thunk it.
Operation Counterweight has started. We need people in the House and Senate who are not afraid to fight.
In many states and districts, it will be easy. In others it will be hard. We are going to have to win a couple of hard ones in order to have the Senate...
Via Orlando Sentinel:
Former U.S. Rep. Alan Graysonis reporting today that he already has raised more than $500,000 in the final quarter of 2011 — a big haul that should boost efforts by the Orlando Democrat to return to Congress…..
“This is what People Power looks like,” said Grayson in a statement. His...
The choice for Best Bumper Sticker of the Year was a tough one. I appreciate the nominations from readers.
My choice came down to which bumper sticker most concisely and vividly reflected my mood and the mood of Legal Insurrection readers.
Here are the results:
1st Place – “Actually, No One Owes You Crap” – pretty much sums up the disgust with the entitlement state and entitlement mentality.
2nd Place – OMG WTF – which stands for Obama Means Good, Win The Future.
3rd Place – OMG, Obama Must Go
Rick Perry has filed a lawsuit over his exclusion from the Virginia ballot.
His website link to the pleading is overloaded, so I don’t know the specifics, updates to follow.
Update: The link keeps freezing but I managed to download the Complaint, here it is.
(added) I claim no expertise in election law, but...
Both Newt’s campaign (first video below) and a pro-Newt SuperPAC have hit the airwaves in Iowa with positive ads.
Meanwhile, I assume that the massive Romney SuperPAC ad buy will be hitting the airwaves in Iowa at the same time.
There is no question that the negative ads have hurt Newt, who has...
I have focused on Ben Nelson, and the Cornhusker Kickback, repeatedly. The big question was whether Nelson would run for reelection, with the Democrats hoping he would as the best chance of keeping the seat.
It turns out...
