Ann Althouse (via Instapundit) has a post about a mailer she received from a pro-Recall group in Wisconsin telling her which of her neighbors voted and which did not in the past several years.  Althouse’s reaction:

Not even sure what kind of subject line to give this one:

There is something pathological in Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to acklowledge that she is not Native American.

When confronted with the fact that real Cherokees have traced her maternal lineage back to the great-great-great grandparent level and found no Native American ancestry, Warren ignores the facts and plays victim:

On the phone, she spoke...

I’ve driven by this vehicle in Ithaca many times, but didn’t pay much attention to the ubiquitous Ithaca is Gorges bumper sticker.

Until the other day, when I noticed that’s not what it said.

A new poll shows trouble for Elizabeth Warren, but not if you just read The Boston Globe’s headline:  Scott Brown, Elizabeth Warren neck and neck in new poll.

But read on and the article tells a different story than the headline portrays (emphasis mine):

Despite a five-week drubbing over her claims to Native...

Just breaking, via USA Today:

A judge has revoked the bond of the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and ordered him returned to jail within 48 hours.

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said Friday that George Zimmerman misled the court about how much money he had available when his bond...

Have you noticed?  The NY Times seems to be getting an awful lot of inside information lately on how tough Obama has been in the war on terror and Iran.

First it was the expansive story about drone warfare, and now about Stuxnet:

From his first months in office, President Obama secretly ordered...

I get the feeling that Elizabeth Warren is heading for an Edmund Muskie moment completely of her own making, unless those close to her step in soon.

I don’t expect Warren to take advice from her political opponents, but she just can’t seem to take good advice even from her political friends.

The latest advice for...

I have tweeted about this before, but tonight there were at least two anti-Santorum ads run on Fox News by Restore our Future, the pro-Romney PAC.

It’s the Big Spender ad which now has been taken down from YouTube, but still plays on national television:

I’ve written numerous times over the past two years about the horrible fiscal mess David Cicilline (D-RI01) left behind in Providence when he was Mayor, and how he concealed the problem from voters during his 2010 congressional race.

The city has been teetering on the verge of bankruptcy, but a tentative deal...

Because large corporations are under continual attack from the left, there is a tendency for the right to think of big corporations as ideological compatriots.

They are not, at least not if they are public.  By and large they are large entities run by politically weak people who will cave into the...

The jury has reached a verdict.  I’ll post an update as soon as announced, and will try to find a live feed to embed.

Per Fox News, unanimous verdict on one count (Count III, illegal campaign contributions from Bunny Mellon), hung jury on other counts. Jury sent back for more deliberation.
