Some things in a fairly active weekend:
Benzion Netanyahu, the father of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, died yesterday:
Born Benzion Mileikowsky in Warsaw, Poland, in 1910 and moving to Mandatory Palestine in 1920, Netanyahu was a devout follower of revisionist Zionist leader Zeev Jabotinsky, who advocated Jewish military strength and the establishment of a Jewish state on both...
The Young Guns Network, and its YG Action Fund, were started by two former aides to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.
The Young Guns have infuriated supporters of Richard Mourdock in the Indiana Senate primary race, as well as many conservatives who had no stake in the race, by spending over $100,000...

Seen on my way back from Church just moments ago. Could not agree more.
Thanks for all of your hard work.
Take good care,
Dick Lugar has announced that his campaign will target cell phone users browsing the internet in zip codes where Richard Mourdock events are taking place.
The targeted ads will repeat the misleading claim, already debunked by FactCheck.org, that Mourdock cheated on taxes. This is yet another sign...

It’s complete and total AxelPlouffe BS, but it’s all the media talks about. The War on...
With Olympia Snowe retiring, this race seems particularly unpredictable with a strong third party showing from the former Governor, via The Hill:
Democrats looking to replace retiring Sen. Olympia Snowe (R) in Maine have a delicate decision to make.
If they back independent former Gov. Angus King, who stands the best chance at...
Dick Lugar’s Iran problem, Part 2: 2001 – one of only two Senators to oppose Iran-Libya Sanctions Act
Dick Lugar’s record on Iran (and Middle East policy in general) has not received as much attention as other Lugar failures, such as his vouching for Obama’s foreign policy credentials just three weeks before the 2008 election.
Lugar consistently has shown what generously could be characterized as wishful thinking about negotiations with the Iranian regime. Lugar’s Iran history deserves the...
Elizabeth Warren isn’t the only unlikely native.
We all are.
Spotted in Ithaca:
I value the input. I’m sorry I can’t respond to all the e-mails but I read them all.
I particularly appreciate the proofreaders! And the bumper sticker contributors rock!
From reader Anne, on why Bill Nelson may be safe in Florida.:
I read with interest your comments on the FL senate race. As a...

What race is an illegal alient? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves with...
Mia Love was interviewed on African American Conservative Radio.
It’s a really interesting discussion.
