Life imitating art, or something like that

Posted by  ▪  January 15, 2012
This ad actually is going to run on television in South Carolina, although in a small buy on a single station. It will be viewed by far more on the internet. I think this will help Romney. The Colbert Report Get More: Colbert Report Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,Video Archive
 

All that remains of Occupy Harvard are tiny tiny tents

Posted by  ▪  January 15, 2012
Occupy Harvard came to an inglorious end.

You mean the headlines lie about evangelical leaders endorsing Santorum?

Posted by  ▪  January 15, 2012
Yes. Headline and story line: Conservative Christian leaders endorse Rick Santorum after Texas meeting A group of about 150 conservative Christian leaders and political activists emerged today from a two-day meeting at a Texas ranch and endorsed former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum for president – a surprising turn for a critical demographic that…

“You have maybe two weeks to Stop Worrying and Start Loving Romney”

Posted by  ▪  January 15, 2012
So suggests Randall Hoven: I can’t say he’s wrong.  I can say that it will be a disaster for our general election chances if the primaries are over so soon, before the bubble of Romney’s electability is fully probed in the conservative media. Andy McCarthy joins a growing chorus of people who do not necessarily…

South Carolina: Where the remaining candidates stand and the significance of the Palmetto State’s primary

Posted by  ▪  January 15, 2012
With much of the political punditry all but declaring Mitt Romney the 2012 Republican nominee, I decided to take a brief look at each of the remaining candidates to see what, if any, are the chances of them actually achieving the nomination as we move deeper into the primaries. I’ve coupled…

There’s no such thing as a free left turn

Thanks to reader Bob, who writes: This is a sign I photographed in Delhi while touring India a few weeks ago. I’m sure there is an analogy somewhere to the main stream media in the United States.
 

God and man at Foxboro

The man of God or the man who is a God in New England? I’m going hometown. I will update when the game is over, until then, it’s whatever is on your mind. Post game update:  “That was so satisfying that I need a cigarette.”
 

Saturday Night Card Game (How nasty will the general election race card get? This nasty)

Posted by  ▪  January 14, 2012
I was hesitant to post the video below, but since it is receiving a lot of press coverage, particularly in Utah, it’s not like I’m helping spread something that’s not already out there.  And you have to see what is coming down the pike. If you thought 2008 was bad, just you wait for…

Ann Althouse is 8

At least her blog, that is: It was back on January 14, 2004 that I crossed the line into the blogosphere. (That’s what we called it then, the blogosphere.) After posting every single day — absolutely never even one day away — I’m still having a grand time. I’m delighted to still be…

Newt finding his theme — attack Romney’s electability

Posted by  ▪  January 14, 2012
The Bain attack ads have hurt Romney in South Carolina, as a Romney supporter acknowledges, although nowhere near the impact Romney’s SuperPAC’s anti-Newt ads had in Iowa.  (Before the Romney supporters get all preachy, I’ve had a chance to look back at some of those Iowa ads, and they were full…

Lotsa Middle East chatter

Posted by  ▪  January 14, 2012
There seems to be a war brewing in the Middle East, if not on the battlefield at least in the political realm. The Wall Street Journal and many others report tension between the U.S. and Israel over a potential strike on Iran.  There also is tension over the assassination of a top Iranian…

Going Godwin to defend Bain

Posted by  ▪  January 13, 2012
This is getting ridiculous, the contortions people are undergoing to make believe Bain is not a problem for Mitt Romney. It’s bad enough that they have conflated defending Bain with a defense of capitalism and free markets.  I also noted yesterday how a couple of Romney defenders on Twitter were suggesting that criticisms of…
