A hard rain will wash away Democrats’ pyrrhic victory

Posted by  ▪  November 10, 2012
Another great analysis by Caroline Glick (h/t Linda in Tennessee): The American spirit has been overwhelmed by the European model of social democracy at home and appeasement and treachery abroad. But all the dependency champions who celebrated on Tuesday night cannot stop the coming storm. The greatest advantage Obama had going into the…

“Shock the System” week at College Insurrection

Posted by  ▪  November 10, 2012
I am more convinced than ever that a shock to the higher-ed system is needed. Universities have turned into political training grounds for can’t-do left-wing professors and administrators who use campuses as laboratories for churning out foot soldiers for the dependency state: Professor Denies Stalin Murdered Millions Florida Professor Pens Book Comparing Obama to Jesus “Diversity,” Princeton-Style California Professors…

Harvard bows to pressure to remove “Arab” food from Israeli buffet in dining hall

Lebanese grad student wages war against Israeli food imperialism

You need no better example of the psychotic pathology of anti-Israeli Arabs, and the equally pathetic moral weakness of Harvard, than this story about a protest over an Israeli food buffet at Harvard Business School, Harvard ‘deeply troubled’ by row over Israeli buffet (emphasis mine): The Harvard Business School is “deeply troubled” for having offended Arab…

Friday night cheer-me-up advice

From April 29, 2009, after Arlen Specter switched parties and the Dems gained their SuperMajority in the Senate (pending Al Franken election recount), and the political world looked a lot more grim than right now … Relax, The Dems Will Screw Up: It would be very easy to fall into a depression over…

Gen. Petraeus resigns due to affair — what other post-election shoes to drop now?

Posted by  ▪  November 9, 2012
This is unreal.  Companies hold off on disclosing layoffs.  Iran shoots at U.S. drone and DOD doesn’t disclose for six days. What other shoes are going to drop now that Obama has been reelected?  Maybe this was one of the reasons no one can seem to get straight answers on Benghazi.  NBC News via Drudge: CIA…

The United States: All Town, No Country

Posted by  ▪  November 9, 2012
Via Drudge, this is why coastal elites call it “flyover country.” Jefferson hated cities.  He thought they spread disease and bad ideas, and believed the perfect republic was composed of educated farmers who by night read Homer in the original Greek. In these disunited states, United Airlines’ main hub is Chicago.

Prediction — OFA will become OFH

Posted by  ▪  November 9, 2012
Hillary will be the Democratic nominee in 2016, if she wants it. There is no second tier of rising Democrats.  The newer House members were wiped out in 2010.  The Senators are decrepit, except for a certain woman who will not sell nationally no matter how much the middle class gets hammered. …

Reports are trickling in that Allen West may be gaining some ground as the initial count of votes continues. However, it remains to be seen if the margin will narrow to the point at which West can force a recount. From The Blaze: Rep. Allen West is leading by more than 300 votes…

Still Perry-curious

Posted by  ▪  November 9, 2012
Sure, let’s start the speculation about 2016.  It helps take our minds off of Tuesday. And we need to plan ahead for the race against Hillary.  (It will be Hillary, don’t you know.  Bill didn’t do all that for Obama.) As longtime readers know, we were Perry-curious in the summer of 2011.  We…

Boston Globe already has Elizabeth Warren buyer’s remorse

Posted by  ▪  November 9, 2012

“Thursday was disrespectful”

Elizabeth Warren continues to treat the press with the same dismissiveness she did during the campaign, similar to how she treated the Cherokee women and Native American DNC delegates who tried to meet with her. But now that she’s elected, even Boston Globe columnists are willing to write about it (emphasis mine): For the…

This is what fear of the State looks like

Posted by  ▪  November 9, 2012
When companies self-censor to wait until the days after the election to announce major layoffs. Via commenter conservativegram in the Tip Line: As Drudge would say-”Own it!” “Nextel to cut 20% of jobs at Virginia headquarters” In Past 48 hrs, following companies announded layoffs: Caterpillar, CVPH Medical Center, Lightyear Haqwker Beechcraft, Westinghouse, Research in Motion, US Cellular,…

From Amy: I know you don’t usually address abortion topics on your blog, but in the off-chance you do, here is a car for you. I saw it in a Wendy’s parking lot here in Aurora, CO, a few weeks ago. Also, I know you normally black out the license plate, but I…
