“We” never believed them, only “you” did

Posted by  ▪  April 14, 2012
Joel Brinkley, currently a Professor at Stanford who spent most of his career as a foreign correspondent for The New York Times, has a column in the San Francisco Chronicle titled Islamists in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia not democratic. The thesis of the column is that Westerners who took Islamists at their word that they…

It still always ends badly

Posted by  ▪  April 14, 2012
It always ends badly: A commenter using the pseudonym “Milwaukeean” has been active here for the past couple of weeks regarding the various court and other disputes in Wisconsin. Milwaukeean didn’t seem to cross the line from dissenter to troll, made some good points at times, and often argued against my position and…

Mia B. Love competitive versus Jim Matheson in UT-04

Posted by  ▪  April 13, 2012
The Salt Lake Tribune released a poll showing that all three Republicans contending against incumbent Democrat Jim Matheson in the new Utah-04 district are competitive with Matheson. This is particularly significant for Mia B. Love (see my prior profile) since the main argument for her Republican competitors is that they had better…

Canaries falling ill in Richard Lugar’s coal mine

Posted by  ▪  April 13, 2012
Richard Lugar has had a big bank account and fundraising prowess going for him in defense of the May 8 primary challenge from Richard Mourdock. Lugar still has the larger bank account by a lot, but Mourdock out-raised Lugar in the 1st Quarter of 2012, according to numbers recently released by the…

(no)Flytilla

Posted by  ▪  April 13, 2012
Flytilla 2012 is another stunt in which anti-Israeli activists from Western countries will attempt the air equivalent of the Gaza Flotilla, arriving en masse at Israel’s Ben Gurian airport, ostensibly to make their way to the West Bank. In reality, it is a publicity stunt done in the hope that hundreds of screaming…

s. 2049

Posted by  ▪  April 13, 2012
Following up on my Penny Lobby post from earlier this week, I thought I’d tackle another coin-based issue: dollar coins. For the past decade or so, the government has been trying to produce and popularize dollar coins. Efforts to introduce the currency, though, have been met with failure (much like the Susan…

Feigned outrage over feigned outrage

Posted by  ▪  April 13, 2012
I disagree with most of what Matt Lewis says in his post The triumph of political games: 7 reasons to reject ‘Rosengate’: The flap over Hillary Rosen’s comments  disparaging stay-at-home-moms like Ann Romney has gotten a  lot of play. I’ve been on the record (okay, on Twitter) mocking the  feigned Republican outrage….

Can someone provide me with a link to Obama’s statement about the crime and murder spree in Chicago

Posted by  ▪  April 13, 2012
I’m not saying Obama hasn’t made a statement recently about the crime and murder spree in Chicago. Murders are up 60% in the past three months, and there has been a daily rampage of shootings, including 7 shot overnight last night, and a mother and baby girl in their home the day before. I’m not…

Bittah in MA

Posted by  ▪  April 13, 2012
This is so 2008.  I bet many of the yutes don’t know what it’s about, and not knowing the source, probably think the owner of the car is racist for describing himself as a “typical white person.” What’s most surprising is to see this in Newton Center, MA, which is the belly of the beast. …

Affidavit of Probable Cause destroys claim Zimmerman used racial epithet

Posted by  ▪  April 12, 2012
One of hotest topics of argument has been whether George Zimmerman said “f-ing coons” under his breath on the 911 tape.  The left-blogosphere has used the alleged racial epithet endlessly to paint this as a racially motivated hate crime. CNN used three different audio experts to analyze the tape, but one of…

War on ….

things we hold dear: Allen West — They edited the tape, of course. Religion — Vanderbilt tells Catholic Students To Change Name. Holocaust remembrance. Republicans — We’re rooting for failure again.

@hilaryr Tweets of the Day

Posted by  ▪  April 12, 2012
Twitter was lit up today with the @hilaryr controversy.  If you are not on Twitter, you need to be. Both Hilary Rosen and Ann Romney were trending during much of the day. Here are some of the better ones I picked out: Michelle Malkin: “Jim Treacher”: Iowahawkblog: Drew M: John Nolte: Dan McLaughlin: Dana Loesch: Update: This exchange had me laughing pretty hard,…
