You will remember the outrage which swept the airwaves when redistricting by the Republican legislature redistricted Allen West out of existence.  There was a heated dispute whether West was targeted or just the victim of circumstance dictated by law.

West ended up switching districts.

West discussed it recently, as reported by The...

There have been protests by Cherokees and other Native American groups over Elizabeth Warren’s continued insistence that she is Native American despite the complete lack of evidence to sustantiate that claim and substantial evidence that the claim is not true.

Now a Harvard graduate, Margo (Kickingbird) DeLaune (Ed. ’81) and her son, Cole R....

Consider this the opening of a time capsule from a gentler, kinder, more delusional era, when love of composite Obama swept the land.

In my post Sunday, It made you happy, but it was that bad, I asked readers for suggestions for the best worst Obama-adoring video for a Reader Poll.

Exile?

If you think being conservative in Lee County, Florida, is being in “exile,” there’s this bridge in Ithaca I’d like to sell you.

From reader John:

In Westchester County, NY. I saw the sticker out of the corner of my eye and expected to see a license plate from a really blue state, so I was surprised when I came around the block to find a Florida plate.

James O’Keefe is loathed on the left almost on a par with what Andrew Breitbart experienced.  From ACORN to NPR to voter fraud in 2012, O’Keefe and his camera have caused havoc.

Yet when blogger Adam Weinstein of Mother Jones approached O’Keefe this year at Netroots Nation, they had a rather pleasant, non-confrontational conversation (in...

What the hell were we thinking?

By “we” I don’t mean me or most of the readers here.

By “we” I mean the nation, which fell in love with composite Obama.

So now she’s not feeling the love no more. (Daily Caller via Instapundit.)

A lot of readers seem to be on road trips these days.  From reader Sandy:

Prof, am on a road trip this weekend, from Virginia to Indiana and then return via Hillsdale, where older daughter begins junior year in August.

Along the way we are seeing some unusual and humorous bumper sticker arrangements.  Am snapping them with my phone.  In the case of attached, PRAISE DOG and Obama, the driver was a mid 60s woman by herself.

Thank you for all of your efforts on all our behalf.
