If you haven’t heard of Ludmya “Mia” B. Love before, you will be hearing a lot more about her.  Mia has the potential to be the next big thing in conservative politics. And you heard about her here first!

Mia is the American-born daughter of Haitian immigrants, mother of three children, served...

Thanks to frequent photographer Scott, who writes:

Attached is a photo of a sticker I saw in my travels this week. I couldn’t believe someone would be so brusque. It may not be ‘fitting’ for a highlight on your site but I thought you could add it to your collection anyway. File this one under ‘moral decay’ or ‘how to ensure car horns are worn out in short order’.

Someone should outlaw this kind of bumper sticker.

 
 
 

Imagine John Sununu in a Romney White House

Only John Sununu, Sr. could make me like Chris Matthews.

Sununu was George H.W. Bush’s Chief of Staff.  He holds a bitter grudge against Newt because Newt opposed Bush breaking his no new taxes pledge, and he convinced Bush to nominate David Souter.

Sununu will be the guy whispering in Romney’s ear in the White House.

That’s a wrap. I’m calling this thing. Unless something terrible comes out  about him in the next few weeks, Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee.

Obama never feared a pink slip, not once

This video is sure to result in great mockery, as Romney says that a couple of times in his life he feared getting a pink slip.

But remember, fearing a pink slip a couple of times is a couple of times more than Barack Obama ever feared a pink slip. 

Because mysteriously funded...

Today is the anniversary of the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of several others, including a federal judge and a young girl, by Jared Loughner.

The victims appropriately will be remembered.

Further investigation revealed that Loughner lived in a non-political paranoid delusional world, and to the extent he ever expressed political leanings, they...

“Pious Baloney” is the word

The line of the Meet The Press debate this morning.

It started out with a typical Romney speech about not being a career policitian, a Santorum attack on that statement, a Romney response, and a Newt follow up:

It is the word:

Endgame assessment:

I give the debate to Newt (and so does Larry Sabato), who was aggressive without being offensive, and once again scored the line of the night about Romney “pious baloney.”

One of the biggest applause lines of the night was when Newt Gingrich, responding to a long (and embarrassing for the moderators) line of questions trying to pin candidates down on gay marriage, contraception and gay adoption, responded as follows:

Newt’s response engendered praise even from two of the people who have...

Endgame Analysis:  Romney has to be happy.  He came away unscathed.  No one went after him in a confrontational manner.

The prevailing wisdom will be that Newt failed to attack, but Newt’s in a no win situation.  If he attacks aggressively, he’s bad, angry Newt; if he doesn’t, people compla...

Every now and then there is just one of those mainstream media moments which points out how false narratives are created.

This time it’s a story from CBS Boston titled Gingrich Left ‘Speechless’ By Young Voter’s ‘Old People’ Question (h/t reader punfundit in the Tip Line).  Here’s the pertinent section, with the bold italics added...

The Romney campaign expects to have the nomination all but wrapped up by the end of January The Washington Post reports, and is using surrogates like John McCain to push the narrative that if Romney wins the first three (or four) states, it’s over.  One of those wins, of course, was Iowa...

There must be tens of thousands of stories like this one from Charles Lane of The Washington Post about his child who died in utero just hours before a scheduled c-section:
