Bubba hasn’t had this much fun since … (Update: There he goes again)

Posted by  ▪  June 5, 2012
STOP, don’t finish the sentence. But he is having the time of his (post-presidential) life, via Politico and Drudge headline, Bill Clinton out of control on 2012: Clinton is not on Barack Obama’s campaign staff, is not a trusted adviser, does  not set Obama’s strategy. But Bill Clinton is pretty good at sabotaging Obama’s …

Next victim, please

Posted by  ▪  June 5, 2012
Now they’re going after Ali Akbar, who is one of the leaders of the National Bloggers Club helping to defend Aaron Walker and others. As reported by Stacy McCain: Monday afternoon I was off the grid when Ali Akbar called to tell me that “Breitbart Unmasked” had published a photo and the address…

Atychiphobia

Posted by  ▪  June 5, 2012
Atychiphobia is the abnormal, unwarranted, and persistent fear of failure. From prior photographer Cathy who spotted this in Eustis, Florida, and sent it with the subject line “NIIIIICCCEEE!!”:

This is just a test of the Legal Insurrection Emergency Broadcast System

Posted by  ▪  June 4, 2012
I have been frustrated with the ability of various pressure groups to mobilize people on Twitter with great speed, while we play catch-up. So we have just added a new feature here, the Legal Insurrection Emergency Broadcast System. When there is a developing event, you will see a Broadcast Alert appear at the…

The vetting of Elizabeth Warren’s academic background begins

Posted by  ▪  June 4, 2012
I have alluded to issues certain writers have taken with Elizabeth Warren’s academic writings. But never have I seen a more scathing critique of Warren than that published by highly regarded Rutgers Law Professor Philip Shuchman which was uncovered by Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart.com. The article is posted here, and was published in…

Preparing for victory or to start a war?

Posted by  ▪  June 4, 2012
Tuesday’s recall election in Wisconsin won’t be the end of the road for union organizers and radical leftists. No matter what the outcome is for Walker, Kleefisch, and the others, it appears that Wisconsin’s role as host will continue. Worker’s World reports that there are widespread actions planned for Wisconsin on June…

Rhode Island needed this

Posted by  ▪  June 4, 2012
We really needed this. No, we really needed this.  We don’t have a lot going for us right now. It’s a small state. Everyone knows someone or at least knows someone who knows someone. Here was my reaction at the time: Rhode Island wins #MissUSA! Only 1 way wk cld get better – America…

Another good job

Posted by  ▪  June 4, 2012
Yesterday I highlighted the good work being done by Robert Stacy McCain to follow up on the Kimberlin/Walker case and related issues. Kudos also go out to Patrick Frey at Patterico, who has gone through as much as anyone, for continuing to follow through, including these posts: Audio and Transcripts from the Hearing…

Will Elizabeth Warren be the straw that breaks affirmative action’s back? Black ministers upset.

Posted by  ▪  June 4, 2012
Put aside the pros and cons of affirmative action.  Assume that at some level you support affirmative action. Those who support affirmative action should be the most upset with Elizabeth Warren’s fake “woman of color” and “minority law teacher” status based on her own self-reporting of supposed family lore of Native American…

I want to get high

Posted by  ▪  June 4, 2012
Manic high or low.  That’s how people are going to be feeling after the Wisconsin Recall results come in tomorrow night. I want to get high. Turnout in Wisconsin will be everything.  The latest PPP poll shows a 3-point margin for Walker, based on a more enthusiastic Republican electorate. (Update: A Warning About…

Elizabeth Warren is full of firsts

Posted by  ▪  June 4, 2012
Elizabeth Warren already laid claim to being the first nursing mother to take the New Jersey Bar exam, an unverifiable and likely untrue claim: Now, despite all the facts the contrary, Warren is claiming that if elected she will be the first Native American Senator from Massachusetts: I discussed Warren’s inability or unwillingness to…

White/Jewish

Posted by  ▪  June 3, 2012
Not a JDate ad, a new “minority classification” at the City University of New York, and some who prefer to stick with preexisting minority classifications are not happy: Touting a move to make its faculty more diverse, CUNY administrators have  broken out Jews into a separate minority group: “White/Jewish.” … “This is, as…
