from Eureka Springs, Arkansas, to Hope. Arkansas. Yet if this shop owner is any indication, it’s a world away from the days of the Man from Hope. From reader MK Reagan, in August: Eureka Springs, AR is kind of a hippie town, but these T shirts were prominently displayed on the street today. Love the…

Touré Neblett does not think he plays the race card. He doesn’t even think there really is a race card, it’s a figment of the vivid White imagination: There is no such thing as a race card. Race is not a card that can be played as if a situation is un-racial until that…

The Founding Fathers owned slaves.  We knew that, didn’t we? Slavery was an institution in many places in the world, including the newly formed United States.  It took a generation and a civil war to end it here, long before it was ended elsewhere. That fact is used as a modern political weapon…

Grover Norquist is predicting a second, even larger Tea Party wave, via Breibart.com (h/t Instapundit): “We are about to have a Tea Party second wave that will dwarf the first wave and that is because while ‘spend too much’ brought the Tea Party into existence, we’re about to walk into ‘spend too…

Yesterday I wrote a post titled Associated Press and the Profit of Mohammed.  Citing a recent story, it said the AP “apparently insists that Mohammed be preceded by the word Prophet.” AP has responded to Legal Insurrection with a denial that the term “Prophet Mohammed” is mandated by the AP stylebook, but every…

As is obvious from my posts, I never read what people outside the conservative bubble say.  So when you see me critiquing almost daily what liberal (and even worse, libertarian) pudits are saying, it’s all an illusion.  I’m deep in the bubble.  So deep, I don’t even know I’m in a bubble. Here…

Wishful thinking on Republican wishful thinking

Posted by

There is no conventional wisdom pushed as hard by the anti-Republican media than the notion that Republicans were in a self-contained media and punditry bubble and refused to believe — or worse yet, deliberately distorted — contrary polling.   Beware this conventional wisdom. I have examined how that conventional wisdom is wrong because it extrapolates…

Depending on who you ask, and at what moment in time, the “fiscal cliff” either is End Times, or not. Obama is in campaign mode, as usual, that bizarre never-never-land where negotiating means running to rallies. Given Obama’s permanent campaign, and the lack of seriousness in his proposals, a growing chorus on the…

Yesterday was other-worldly, watching the sick march of hypocrisy on display at the U.N. for the vote in the General Assembly to grant “Palestine” nonmember state status. Of course, “Palestine” already declared independence in 1988 and that declaration was recognized by almost all of the 138 countries that voted “yes” yesterday. What was…
