Zimmerman racial slur narrative falling apart

Posted by  ▪  April 5, 2012
As with so much else in this case, the original media report of George Zimmerman using the pejorative “coons,” which has been accepted as true and then repeated endlessly by the left blogosphere and mainstream media, now is in doubt. An enhanced analysis now appears to indicate Zimmerman said “cold.” Some of the…

Conservatives better wake up to anti-conservative boycott movements

Posted by  ▪  April 5, 2012

Media Matters threw its full weight into the boycott, continues to work on it, and so-called “independent” groups continue to tweet away and call mostly local advertisers.

New neighborhood watchman

Posted by  ▪  April 5, 2012
Um, there’s so much I could say, so many comparisons I could make. But I’m not going to go there.  Because he knows who has been naughty, and I don’t want to get fishy flagged or end up on an #attackwatch list like Fuzzy. From a reader who prefers to remain anonymous since he…

Anti-Romney conservatives are “like birthers”

Posted by  ▪  April 4, 2012
I knew I shouldn’t have looked back. I have not read Jennifer Rubin in weeks. She has become so odious in her Romneyquest that reading her posts is like sipping poison; it doesn’t kill you but it makes you nauseated. Every time I read one of her insulting pieces it reminds me of the…

I think polls close tonight

Posted by  ▪  April 3, 2012
