The joke on America continues. And another entry that cannot wait until Saturday night. I’m not sure if Biden will make it to the election, or if Dems will opt for a more sensible Veep on the ticket:

Glimpse inside the Romney/Ryan rally in Waukesha

Posted by

I attended the Paul Ryan/Mitt Romney rally in Waukesha, WI, this past Sunday evening, where the crowd of nearly 10,000 mirrored other huge turnouts around the country. There was a group of about 15 protesters, organized by SEIU, Obama for America, and MoveOn.org, lining the entrance to the rally, captured best in…

Branco cartoon – Destroying Social Security

Posted by

A.F. Branco produced this cartoon last April for CDN, but it is amazingly appropriate right now. Democrats, not Paul Ryan, throw granny over the cliff by failing to act like adults in saving Medicare and Social Security. It’s a fact just now being told in the media, and it is something we have to hit on…

A whistleblower former employee of the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISACorps) has revealed that she was coerced to attend Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH partisan forum with Nancy Pelosi, pose for photo ops, given instructions on loading students up with student debt, and then reimbursed travel and hotel expenses with federal funds.

From reader Desert Viking: Saw this today in the parking lot at Mesa Community College in Mesa, AZ. As I was taking the picture the owner was getting into car. They said that people take pictures and comment on it all the time. While it’s parked at school they get messages left saying “You…

Hey Paul Ryan haters, your congressional insider trader suspect actually is Sheldon Whitehouse

Paul Ryan falsely was accused today by left-wing bloggers, most notably Matthew Yglesias (formerly of Think Progress now of Slate), of insider trading based on confidential information provided by the Treasury Secretary to Congress on September 18, 2008. That day, Ryan traded Citigroup stock. The accusation fell apart when someone noticed that the…

to the rest of the country, from the only state which still celebrates it. We’ve change the name to disguise the purpose of the day. Because disclosing the Victory we are commemorating would be so incorrect. It’s like everyone gets a trophy day. Anyway, for those of you who missed it on July…

There seems to be an unusual lack of clarity here, as Ed Morrissey notes in a post earlier this afternoon. Various news reports indicate Palin will not be giving a speech, but it’s unclear if she was not invited to speak, given such a poor time slot that she didn’t want it,…

CNN host and Time magazine contributor Fareed Zakaria has been suspended by both outlets after Newsbusters reported Friday he had plagiarized a column.

What the hell was the Presidential Commission on Debates thinking? I realize it is hard to find any MSM person who is neutral much less perceived as neutral, but really … this person will moderate one of three presidential debates? She claimed to be reciting what unnamed Republicans were saying privately, but that’s…

I’ve been waiting for Romney’s SuperPAC to go after Obama the way it went after Newt. We’re not there yet, but getting closer.

There is no more misleading imagery than the ad run by Democrats in which a Paul Ryan-looking figure throws Granny off a cliff due to Medicare cuts: The ad has it exactly opposite to reality.  Republican proposals would keep Medicare the same for people already in the system or 10 years away from…

Anne is at the Romney-Ryan rally in Waukesha.  She says the crowd is so large they had to move the rally from indoors to outdoors to accommodate all the people. We’re still trying to confirm the crowd size estimate.  (Campaign says 10,000, which is similar to what Anne was told.) Apparently three protesters…
