Posted by  ▪  March 6, 2012
State-by-State vote results: NY Times. 11:00 p.m. -  Santorum is up by a couple of thousand votes with 86% reporting, but the talking heads are saying some key Romney precincts are not fully reported, so it is possible and maybe likely he will eke out a very tiny win.  I’m not staying…

No Country for old Free Exercise Clauses

Posted by  ▪  March 6, 2012
Commenter CWLsun put together a list of links in the Tip Line regarding the explicit plan of various law school branches of Students for Reproductive Freedom to establish secular contraceptive policies at Catholic educational institutions. I don’t have a problem with that when it is done without using the force of government. If Sandra Fluke had convinced…

Only the Tea Party, Christians, Republicans, and Conservatives are allowed to be portrayed as everything Hollywood actually is

Posted by  ▪  March 6, 2012
The Hollywood movie industry is not racist just because there are few blacks or other racial minorities in leading roles, on the set, or in the executive suite. Hollywood is not sexist even though the culture of the casting couch still lives, and young women are expected to perform sex acts to advance both behind closed…

Huge red flag

Posted by  ▪  March 6, 2012
What, you didn’t get new sidewalks too? From reader “9th District Neighbor”: I though you would enjoy the photo I’ve attached of a street crossing near a park in Evanston, IL–home to Jan Schakowsky. The sign was a recent addition in a series of “improvements” to this crossing where, to my knowledge, there has…

They don’t want an apology, they want a confession

Posted by  ▪  March 5, 2012
Ann Althouse gets deep into the weeds on apologies, and finds that some apologies are more equal than others in the eyes of the Democratic Commisariate (emphasis in original): Now, I believe in general principles, and I want to know what the general principle is about accepting apologies. I’d like to nail down…

Posted by  ▪  March 5, 2012

Carbonite background

Posted by  ▪  March 5, 2012
Jeffrey Lord (via Instapundit) addresses the attempt to drive away Rush Limbaugh’s advertisers, focusing particularly on Carbonite: In other words, to put it politely, Mr. Friend’s woe-is-me I’m-withdrawing-my-company’s sponsorship-from-Rush Limbaugh-because of-my-lovely-daughters is as close to certifiable BS as one can imagine. Mr. Friend, one can only suspect, placed Carbonite’s ads with Rush Limbaugh because…

Welcome to total political war

Posted by  ▪  March 5, 2012
And I’m not talking about the attempt to get advertisers to stop advertising on Rush Limbaugh’s show, or Fox News, although that would be bad enough. I’m talking about the second-tier of the warfare, the attempt to intimidate those removed by one or more degrees of separation from the dispute, and to…
