In the earliest days of the internet, an Instapundit reader suggested the term “take the Boeing” to describe when bloggers join big media outlets. Today, Volokh Conspiracy took the Washington Post’s Boeing: We’re now trying what might be the most ambitious experiment yet: a joint venture with the Washington Post. The Post will…

Her personal narrative has been exposed. Her ex-husband was told to shut up, but he didn’t. She’s going after reporters and her opponent, rather than following her own advice and reflecting on her own shortcomings. Another well-known Texas reporter has some more juicy tidbits, and compares her campaign to Gary Hart’s failed presidential bid as it…

That was good advice then, and even better advice now, as she attacks others for exposure of her misleading narrative.

Why didn’t Bill Clinton run for President in 1988? I never really thought about it. Larry Sabato, as part of a post explaining why Hillary is not a “slam dunk” (h/t Hot Air), explains: After all, with just one exception, a Clinton has always tried for public office whenever a tantalizing opportunity presented itself….

According to numerous press reports, the Palestinians have refused any meaningful concessions in the John Kerry-led peace talks.  No compromise on recognizing Israel as a Jewish state, on refugees, on borders, on security arrangements, on anything meaningful.  Instead, they are planning a diplomatic intifada to try to isolate Israel when the…

Wendy Davis, the progressive movement’s Texas darling because of her pro-late term abortion filibuster, is withering under revelations that much of her narrative of struggle and financial hardship is misleading at best, fabricated at worst.

You can now add Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to the growing chorus who recognize the Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement for what it is — as former Harvard President Lawrence Summers put it, anti-Semitism “in effect” if not “in intent.” Harper addressed the Knesset today, and voiced unflinching support for Israel (video…

Wendy Davis rose to national prominence when she conducted a filibuster to block a Texas bill restricting non-medically necessary abortions after 20-weeks. For that position, which is wildly unpopular, Davis became the next Elizabeth Warren — the Great White Hope in pink sneakers. Erick Erickson dubbed her “Abortion Barbie,” which led to…
