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…

But he didn’t listen to the campaign, and the result is the implosion of Wendy Davis’ personal and political narratives

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. The wagons are being circled around her with claims of a War on Women and sexism ……

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…

“Layers of Editing” is no defense for NY Times Benghazi bias

Posted by  ▪  January 20, 2014

That the NY Times’ failed Benghazi blockbuster went through “layers of editing” makes claims of bias more, not less, credible.

I did not know who Richard Sherman was until last night. When Twitter exploded with Twit-rage over something Sherman said, I didn’t know what everyone was talking about because I didn’t watch the end of the San Francisco-Seattle football game. So I searched Sherman’s name and then clicked on his Wikipedia page, and…

Demonstrations in Kiev, Ukraine erupted into violent clashes between protesters and police on Sunday. From Reuters: Protesters clashed with riot police in the Ukrainian capital on Sunday after tough anti-protest legislation, which the political opposition says paves the way for a police state, was rushed through parliament last week.

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…

On a recent Hot Air thread about whether it’s desirable to impeach Obama I saw this comment: Impeachment would be like a child throwing a temper tantrum — lots of sound and fury signifying extreme frustration. But in the end Obama would still be there. Impeachment is not an absolute impossibility before Obama’s…

Because we focus so much on the Boycott, Divest, Sanction movement on campuses, it’s easy to get the impression that such anti-Israeli students are the majority. They are not. They are just the loud mouths, who scream, call people names, and built idiotic mock walls and checkpoints — for which they…

While the rest of the country has been enjoying the “Polar Vortex”, my home state has had a slightly different set of “climate change” issues to address. Gov. Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency on Friday, citing a need for conservation efforts and a fingers-crossed message that he “hopes it will rain”…

Or when Joan Walsh of Salon.com got into a twitter war with some ladies who did not like Walsh’s condescending…

Israel’s Justice Minister (and former Foreign Minister) Tzipi Livni has been sounding the panic button on the international boycott of Israel for at least a year. It was part of her political platform for elections, but her party still managed only a small percentage of the electorate. Livni’s latest was reported today…
