I think I’ll watch Hannity tonight

Posted by  ▪  October 2, 2012
Because a tape is being released on Hannity tonight. And based on this tease by Drudge, it should be big. Guesses? One thing for sure, Democrats will scream Racism! for showing a tape of Obama saying words which are not helpful to Obama. Maybe that will result in a third Obama speech on race. One…

Scott Brown “Bains” Elizabeth Warren

Posted by  ▪  October 2, 2012
Elizabeth Warren is running hard left in her rhetoric, but the reality is she served big companies in her extensive private legal practice and got paid big, big dollars for it. At the first debate, Brown scored big points on Warren’s representation of Travelers, for which she earned $212,000 but which resulted…

What Kind of Person Thinks Free Speech is Too Costly?

Posted by  ▪  October 2, 2012
Thanks to the inimitable David Burge (AKA Iowahawk), I came upon a piece written by a New York University student titled—no kidding—“Have we taken free speech too far?”  The news hook for Muslim student Faria Mardhani’s not-so-rhetorical question is the story of the Egyptian activist (and MSNBC contributor) who was caught defacing…

Obama may win by diminished military vote in key states

Posted by  ▪  October 2, 2012

Where are all the public officials who should be speaking up for the troops?

I highlighted yesterday the precipitous drop in military absentee ballot requests in key battleground state Virginia. It’s happening in battleground Wisconsin too, as reported by The MacIver Institute: At least 30 Wisconsin municipalities failed to send absentee ballots to military voters before the 45 day deadline, according to former U.S. Secretary of Veterans…

Absolutely Certain

Posted by  ▪  October 2, 2012
The video below, Absolutely Uncertain (h/t @SGLawrence) already has over 800,000 views on YouTube. I understand Irina’s point, the trust in Obama has been shaken, and now she is uncertain about Obama’s commitment to Israel. I’m not uncertain.  I am certain that in a second term, freed of the need to be reelected,…

From commenter 9th District Neighbor, who took this photo in Glenview, IL (Cook County): I snapped this photo today—the sign is very recent, it probably went up over the weekend. North suburban Cook County is a far cry from what it…

Elizabeth Warren issues incomplete list of cases

Posted by  ▪  October 1, 2012

Unwittingly also demonstrates her extensive practice of law from her Massachusetts office

Minutes before tonight’s debate, Elizabeth Warren issued a list of all of the cases she has worked on since joining Harvard.  It was an impressive list, proving what I have said all along, she practiced law on a regular basis from her Harvard office.  But she was not licensed in Massachusetts. Via…

Brown-Warren post-debate analysis

Posted by  ▪  October 1, 2012
Quick takes on the debate which just ended. End Result — As with most of these things, people will see what they want. I’d say while Brown won hands down the first debate, this one was more even.  Brown won big on Warren’s personal problems, which took up the first 15 minutes or…

This is the second debate, being held at U. Mass. Lowell, starting at 7 p.m. Eastern.  There should be live feeds on MassLive.com, uml.edu, bostonherald.com, and CBS 3 in Springfield . It may also be on CSPAN. David Gregory is the moderator – ugh.  Let me guess how that will go.  It should be…

Is tonight the night Elizabeth Warren’s law license problem goes mainstream? (Update – No)

Posted by  ▪  October 1, 2012
Despite a Drudge link, huge linkage everywhere in the conservative blogosphere, and defensiveness in the left-legal blogosphere, Elizabeth Warren’s law license problem has not broken into the mainstream media. Other than some passing references, the Boston press has ignored it, even as debates raged on the internet and Boston talk radio. There seems…

Slow walking ballots to the military, fast walking guns to Mexico and free cell phones to Cleveland

Military absentee ballot requests down 92% in key battleground state Virginia

The government has become quite efficient under Obama at fast walking guns to Mexico and free cell phones to Cleveland, but has ignored its obligation to secure and promote absentee ballot requests from the military. Via Virginia Watchdog: A 92 percent drop in absentee-ballot requests by military personnel in Virginia is raising concerns…
