Richard Mourdock’s campaign had an operational failure by uploading a video about the Supreme Court overturning Obamacare.   The campaign also uploaded other versions depending on outcome.

That’s an embarrassment, but really, who has not come close to that?

You mean to tell me the newspapers don’t have templates already written depending upon which...

As previously posted, Elizabeth Warren has a Google search bar auto-fill problem.  Almost every term which shows up in auto fill has to do with her Cherokee problem and claims to be minority and Native American.

But there is a solution.  Move to Japan.

The video of George Zimmerman reenacting the events the night he shot Trayvon Martin has been released.

I will analyze this video and the other evidence (including lie detector video and audio police statement) just released by the defense, but I don’t have time right now, so perhaps we could do a group analysis. ...

I noted the other day the odd attack by various StopRush activists on one of their own, #StopRush turns on itself, devolves into name calling, accusations.

Now the details are coming out, and it turns out that StopRush was infiltrated by a Blue Dog type Democrat who didn’t like their online tactics.  That person, who was the subject...

Not breaking – No Obamacare or Arizona decisions today

The Supreme Court has wrapped up releasing its decisions today, and no decisions were released in the Obamacare or Arizona immigration law cases.

The key decision released today was a loss for SEIU on imposing fee assessments on non-members for political purposes.  The case is being portrayed as perhaps more broad than it really...

Alethea Harney, Elizabeth Warren’s press secretary, is the one feeding my name to Boston media as a “right wing extremist.”

Yet Harney apparently is not proud of her personal Twitter history.  As reported by The Washington Free Beacon, Harney has turned her Twitter history private, trying to avoid scrutiny:

There are several really important Supreme Court decisions to be handed down tomorrow at 10 a.m., Monday at 10 a.m., or next Thursday at 10 a.m.

With so much going on in the domestic political arena, it’s easy for attention to get distracted from the Iranian-Hezollah-Russian attempt to keep Bashar Assad in power.

Other than when there is a heavy one-day body count, Syria is not in the U.S. news media radar.

From reader J:

I have the privilege of living in Charlottesville, recently named the smartest city in America.

Yet most of the bumper stickers we see are like the one in the first attached JPG [to be run at later date], no doubt because of the influence of the confluence of liberals at UVa. Liberalism and Obama-worship writ large, and every PC cliche in existence, all on the back of one car.

However, every now and then, one sees a sticker or two that represent the fly in the ointment, and it’s worth celebrating. See the second JPG.

Thought you’d like to see these. Keep up the great work.

As you know, Elizabeth Warren has been caught in a series of at best misleading and at worst false responses since The Boston Herald first broke the story in late April that Harvard Law promoted her as Native American in the mid-to-late 1990s.

First she played dumb and said she didn’t know...

I mentioned the other day the growing demographic divide in the New York City area Jewish community, which has a rapidly growing Orthodox community and stagnant if not shrinking “secular” community.

That demographic shift has political implications as Orthodox Jews are not a core Democratic constituency.

It also is sparking something of in...
