There is something seriously wrong. Via The Boston Globe (h/t NRO)(emphasis mine): As Elizabeth Warren walked through the marble corridors of the Capitol on Tuesday, she tried assiduously to keep a low profile. Walking arm in arm with Senator-elect Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, Warren passed paintings of historic politicians, busts of former vice…

Fight the smears even against Dick Morris

Fight the smears even against Dick Morris

It would be very easy to let slide the false meme that Dick Morris “admitted” that his election projections were made only for the purpose of helping Mitt Romney. We’re not happy with Morris and other Republican pundits who predicted a win based on a turnout model which did not happen. It…

Operation Demoralize, the attempt to convince you that conservatism is dead, that you live in a media cocoon, that you are incapable of learning, and that your pundits lied to you, is dominating the media. But are the quick and easy answers — just say Yes to illegal immigration, higher taxes, creeping…

The letter below is from a group of grassroots conservatives who got together to pen their frustrations with the GOP. While these individuals do not wish to share their names, their sentiments are ones many of us share, including myself. Some of them I know; others, whom I don’t know and…

If people want to criticize Dick Morris and other Republican pundits and strategists for being wrong in their election predictions, go ahead.  20/20 hindsight is a beautiful thing. But it is something else to go the extra step and accuse Morris and others of being dishonest in their predictions. That is what Taggan Goddard of Political…

First came the ignominious downfall of General David Petraeus.  Now come the revelations that our top commander in Afghanistan, General John Allen, got in on the action too, and that the FBI agent who chose to investigate the otherwise innocuous emails that kick started this episode of Real Housewives of the Pentagon…

High state income and property tax states like California, New York, and Illinois are automatic wins for Democrats, giving them a built-in electoral college advantage. And they stuck it to the rest of us. So it’s time for payback not out of vindictiveness, but in the interest of fairness, as suggested by John Haywood at…
