Saturday Night Card Game (Who should have played the role?)

Posted by  ▪  February 11, 2012
I posted earlier in the week about the Super Bowl commercial run by Pete Hoekstra, who is running for Senate from Michigan against Debbie Stabenow. The commercial was part of a DebbieSpendItNow.com campaign highlighting the loss of jobs in Michigan to countries like China. The url now redirects to Hoekstra’s campaign website, but here is…

The Iveys

Posted by  ▪  February 11, 2012
Reader and frequent photographer Danelle sends this email: This link is for a young Texas group, The Ivey’s. “Lady Made of Stone” is the first video and single release for their new album. I’d spend a couple of paragraphs bragging on these kids, but their music speaks for  itself. The music they write is wonderfully complex…

Posted by  ▪  February 11, 2012

Santorum surge, or mirage?

Posted by  ▪  February 11, 2012
PPP polling shows Santorum with a huge surge in support since he won the Minnesota and Colorado caucuses and non-binding Missouri primary, to the point that he leads nationally with 38 percent, to 23% for Romney, 17% for Newt, and 13% for Ron Paul. Although a surge of this magnitude is not reflected in numerous…

Will we let them take this guy down?

Posted by  ▪  February 11, 2012
There is nothing more important we can do between now and the November election than to help Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker defeat the recall effort. Don’t let the thugs, Godwins, and head cases win.  Help Wisconsin and the nation end this long, strange trip. Links to how to help at the Focus Page.

Breitbart at CPAC

Posted by  ▪  February 10, 2012
Oh, he’s poking Team Obama and the media in the eye. He’s says he’s got some films of Obama from college, and he’ll release them at just the right time. I wonder if the films were courtesy of Ayers and Dorn. When would be the best time? Film one two days before Obama is…

Even a stopped clock.

Is right twice a day. Jeffrey Sachs, darling of the left, innovator of crazy theories & misguided foreign aid efforts, has called out Paul Krugman’s approach to economics:  “Paul has a powerful bully pulpit in his New York Times column, and he’s been on one theme for three years,” Sachs said. Krugman has…

Blaming the victim

John Hinderaker at Power Line lays the blame for an eventual loss to Obama primarily at the feet of Newt: Nevertheless, if you are a Republican, the vibes are very bad. The presidential primary season has turned into a disaster, in my view. Mitt Romney has shown a discouraging inability to appeal to…

The group, the People’s Mujahedin of Iran, has long been designated as a terrorist…

Israel Matzav and  JWeekly have good write-ups of the anti-Israel derangement at the University of Pennsylvania, which hosted a Boycott Divest Sanction conference.  Not Boycott Divest Sanction Syria, or Saudi Arabia, or Iran … just Israel. We have featured these anti-Semitic — yes that’s what they are by their actions – before, but they are far…

But what did you evolve into?

If being an Obamabot is the end result of evolution, we would have been better off staying knuckle-dragging troglodytes. From reader, student and author @BlakeSeitz, taken in a parking garage at the University of Georgia:
