Alabama and Mississippi polls: Gingrich on top, but not by much

Posted by  ▪  March 9, 2012
A slew of new polls have recently been released showing that the Presidential campaign in the southern states is essentially a dead heat. Newt Gingrich appears to have a tenuous lead over the other candidates but, in almost every poll, he is within the statistical margin of error. In Alabama, Rasmussen reported…

Any self-respecting liberal should be screaming, “Gloria STOP trying to help.”

Posted by  ▪  March 9, 2012
Gloria Allred just couldn’t help herself, she had to get in on the Sandra Fluke / Rush Limbaugh story. Allred has gone public with a letter she sent to officials in Florida seeking to have Rush prosecuted under a Florida law, which makes it a misdemeanor, with respect to a woman, to “falsely…

KONY, or on the weaknesses of democracy

Posted by  ▪  March 9, 2012
This week my Facebook feed was littered with postings about KONY, the latest viral “activist” movement to sweep the web. A brief recap: a charity called “Invisible Children” launched a video campaign to bring about awareness of Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony. The #stopkony campaign has been trending on Twitter and aims to promote…

The “Filthy” State of Values in Our Schools

Posted by  ▪  March 9, 2012
Earlier this week I had the pleasure of sitting in on a lecture given by Dr. Richard Baer, professor emeritus of environmental ethics and education, at an event hosted by the Cornell Republicans. Baer spoke at length about how, in their rush to ensure that they’re not promoting religious values, state-run and other “non-sectarian” schools…

The lesson of Carbonite

Posted by  ▪  March 9, 2012
Probably not a good idea to make decisions which could alter the course of company history on a Saturday night. Will Carbonite become the next Sleep Train, and attempt to regain access to Limbaugh’s audience? Via Instapundit, Rush said no to Sleep Train and probably would to Carbonite: OUCH:  Limbaugh Not So Hot…

Thought police at Univ. Rochester

Posted by  ▪  March 9, 2012
From University of Rochester (NY) Professor Stephen E. Landsburg, a blisteringly refreshing view of Sandra Fluke, Rush to Judgment (via Althouse h/t Instapundit): But while Ms. Fluke herself deserves the same basic respect we owe to any human being, her position — which is what’s at issue here — deserves none whatseover.   It deserves…

Eliminationists!

Posted by  ▪  March 9, 2012
They are concentrating on the coasts.  And they are for real, unlike their targets. From reader Philip: Here is another one Prof. This was in the local supermarket parking lot. San Diego is turning hard left and it might be time for me and the Mrs. to pack up and leave.

Twitchy?

Posted by  ▪  March 8, 2012
A new service from Michelle Malkin and team, which I noticed because they twitched (twitchy-ed / twitchied ?) me today. Scandal at The Washington Post: Fraud, Lobbying & Insider Trading. “If we don’t do better among Latinos, we are not going to be talking about how to get back Florida in the presidential…

The “civility” comedy gold practically writes itself

Posted by  ▪  March 8, 2012
There’s another “victim” of Rush Limbaugh, according to Adam Clark Estes at The Atlantic Wire, Rush Limbaugh’s Latest Verbal Victim Feels Derided, Dismissed: Less than a week after calling Sandra Fluke a “slut” on the air, Rush Limbaugh ran his mouth again on Tuesday, calling investigative journalist Tracie McMillan a “babe”, an…

When the wind blows too much

Posted by  ▪  March 8, 2012
I’m all in favor of wind energy.  If it works, do it.  But the notion that windmills will be anything more than a small aspect of electricity production is blowing smoke. I previously highlighted the problem in Britain, where wind turbine owners are paid not to produce electricity, Our Future? Wind Farms…

Carbonite shoots its business model in the foot

Posted by  ▪  March 8, 2012
The decline in the price of Carbonite stock since it announced it was dropping its longstanding advertising on the Rush Limbaugh show is not the real story of the damage done to Carbonite. The price of Carbonite stock has been dropping since October for reasons unrelated to this controversy, although it did fall off a…

You’ll never walk alone

Posted by  ▪  March 8, 2012
From reader and frequent photographer Scott, who sent this photo with the subject line “It seems I’m not alone”: I regret that I’ve been remiss in getting images out to you, especially since Raleigh seems the perfect battleground state again in 2012. I’ll try to do better as we inch toward November. My wife…

Wisconsin, Wisconsin, it’s a …

place where judges act strangely, Judge draws flak for signing Walker recall petition and Judge Flanagan must step aside in voter ID case: After signing a petition to force a recall of Gov. Scott Walker, the liberal judge had the audacity to issue a temporary injunction against the state’s voter ID law. He signed…
