UAW for Obama, and vice versa

Posted by  ▪  February 28, 2012
Obama gave a speech to the United Auto Workers laced with what Greg Sargeant described as “withering derision”: A key line: “I keep on hearing these same folks talk about values all the time. You want to talk about values? Hard work: That’s a value. Looking out for one another: That’s a…

Another unintended consequence of the higher education bubble

Posted by  ▪  February 28, 2012
Consider this “obligatory.”  And unintended parody. CNS’ headline says Sex-Crazed Co-Eds Going Broke Buying Birth Control: A Georgetown co-ed told Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s hearing that the women in  her law school program are having so much sex that they’re going broke,  so you and I should pay for their birth control. Speaking at a…

Posted by  ▪  February 28, 2012
Rick Santorum is running robocalls in Michigan urging Democrats to vote in the Republican primary for Santorum and against Romney because … wait for it … Romney opposed Obama’s auto industry bailout but supported the Wall Street bailout. Got it? The great conservative hope is attacking a Republican for not supporting the auto…

Cicilline vulnerable in RI-01

Posted by  ▪  February 28, 2012
One of my focus races is the attempt by Republican Brendan Doherty to unseat Democrat David Cicilline in RI-01, my home district. Cicilline is very unpopular due to the mess he left behind when he was the Mayor of Providence.  While Cicilline was able to hide the problems when he ran for…

Retire Richard Lugar, Elect Richard Mourdock

Posted by  ▪  February 28, 2012
There is a prime opportunity in the Indiana Republican primary to elect a solid conservative, Richard Mourdock, and to retire Obama’s favorite Republican, Richard Lugar, who has an abysmal voting record. I will be supporting Mourdock, and I hope you will help with this important race. I first wrote about Mourdock back in November.  Since…

The handwriting on the wall

Posted by  ▪  February 28, 2012
Have you noticed, there have been a lot of handwritten, or in this case painted, anti-Obama signs on vehicles lately.  It’s almost as it a mere bumper sticker cannot contain the rage. Thanks to Jane from Olympia, Washington: Thought you might like this—there was more writing on the other side of the van,…

Reasons for the Tea Party movement still apply

Posted by  ▪  February 27, 2012
Instapundit links to articles on the third anniversary of the Tea Party movement, when the first rallies were held. I attribute the rise to the rant earlier in February 2009 by Rick Santelli. I can watch this over and over again without getting tired of it.  It’s more true today than three years…

It’s days like this

Posted by  ▪  February 27, 2012
It’s days like this when I particularly appreciate reader tips: The Dersh: The odious ‘Israel first’ libel. (h/t jimzinsocal in Tip Line) Rape, They Cried. Hundreds  of threats for assault victim in case dismissed by Quran-minded judge. Here Comes Obama’s 3 AM Phone Call.  And, The Prime Minister of Israel is Calling. WeirdDave:  Come on, Ann. 55%…

David Friedman on Global Warming

Posted by  ▪  February 27, 2012
David Friedman, the son of that Friedman, is one of my favorite bloggers. He isn’t terribly hard to read and he doesn’t update daily, but – when he writes – it is worth the wait. Take, for example, his most recent post:  A while back I read an article attacking Bjorn Lomborg, an…

Thing you may have missed

Posted by  ▪  February 27, 2012
this weekend, but before you check those out, remember Kathleen’s post about the changes to Google privacy policies which take effect March 1, and how you can protect yourself.

The Twinkie Enticement

Posted by  ▪  February 27, 2012
With the backlash to the ever growing power of the federal government and its increased dominance in our lives, one must ask, how did this behemoth come to be in the first place? First, a little constitutional primer is in order to understand our current predicament. Under our constitutional system of government,…

Not vomitous

Posted by  ▪  February 27, 2012
Rick Santorum, referring to a speech by then Senator John F. Kennedy to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association in 1960, said the speech made him want to vomit because Kennedy used the term “absolute” separation of church and state. The transcript is here.   (h/t conservativegram in the Tip Line)  Read the whole sentence…

Pure Vermont

Posted by  ▪  February 27, 2012
Oops, forgot, not allowed to say that. From reader Tom, who spotted this Vermont vehicle on Broadway in Saratoga Springs, NY, and writes: You’ve probably already seen the “responsible” sticker, but it was new for me. Thanks for your continued insight on all things conservative. Actually, I don’t think we’ve seen the “responsible” sticker before, although…
