One of the conspiracy theories floating around the comment section here and elsewhere was that Michele Bachmann served as the attack dog against everyone but Romney in the hope of gaining a VP nod.

The speculation was fueled by Bachmann’s relentless and often inaccurate attacks on everyone who rose to be the lead...

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...

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...

Romney keeps digging on secrecy

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...

Romney’s electability is overblown

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...

Worst Bumper Sticker of the Year

Posted by  ▪  Thursday, December 29, 2011 at 7:00am

The worst Bumper Sticker of the Year competition was almost as tough as the Best Bumper Sticker of the Year competition.  Thanks again to those who made nominations.

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

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
