16 seconds cannot change 16 years

Posted by  ▪  October 30, 2012
The video below (h/t Hot Air) is getting a lot of exposure. It presents, in 16 seconds, religious freedom analogies. But it will make no impact with the Sandra Flukes of the world, who view free birth control as a human right. Someone has to be forced to buy it for them. And…

MoveOn sick-in-the-headness

Posted by  ▪  October 30, 2012
Just when you thought it could not get any worse. MoveOn.org and Michael Moore have produced a video which is beyond description. Can we just declare MoveOn a mental illness so it can be covered (under Obamacare, of course). Video (h/t NRO)  NSFW (language warning): Makes the creepy singing children and Lena Dunham seem…

Big Government straw men not blown away by Sandy

Posted by  ▪  October 30, 2012
This was all so predictable. The water has not yet receded in much of the storm damaged region, yet the big government straw man arguments survived and are flourishing. On CBS this morning a correspondent (don’t remember his name) was asked by one of the anchors what the storm means in terms of…

Let my people go

Posted by  ▪  October 30, 2012
From Leslie Eastmen of Temple of Mut, and contributor at College Insurrection: I just came back from a Jousting Tournament with my family. As we were leaving the parking lot, fate had it that my husband’s eyes alighted upon a car with bumper stickers featuring Romney/Ryan, anti-Obama, and pro-Israel/Jewish images. I…

If Nate Silver cannot be wrong, how can he be right?

Posted by  ▪  October 29, 2012
I have no implicit pro- or anti-Nate Silver bias.  He was a journolist and in 2008 got some secret help with his predictions from the Obama campaign, but since joining The NY Times I think he has raised his game. I find the whole focus on Silver and his presidential election “model” to be…

Black Chicagoans rage against the Obama, the leadership, the machine

Posted by  ▪  October 29, 2012
A startling video released today by Jeremy Segal (“Rebel Pundit”) of Breitbart.com shows inner-city Black Chicagoans expressing outrage against President Obama, union racism, and the Democratic Machine, whom they say no longer represent their agenda.

Zero Plus Zero Equals Resentment in Liberal Math

Posted by  ▪  October 29, 2012
In Slate, the usually foolish Matt Yglesias holds true to form by demonstrating why we shouldn’t allow liberals to make public policy based on what they consider fairness.  He points to the “mega-yacht” that Steve Jobs commissioned long before his death as “a valuable reminder of the best argument for reducing…

HuffPo home page — Obama underwater

Posted by  ▪  October 29, 2012
Thanks to reader Brian for sending me this screen capture. I went to HuffPo thinking this must be a Photoshop, but no, it’s real.  It’s one of a series of photos of Hurricane Sandy which scroll on HuffPo’s homepage today. Brian writes: Maybe even they know Obama is underwater!

One word: Creepy

Posted by  ▪  October 29, 2012
I have one suggestion for the Obama campaign and supporters thereof: Moratorium on the creepy campaign ads with choirs of children singing about how much of a savior President Obama is. There have been a few questionable ones in the past but this one, I think, reaches a whole new level. Please pay…
