Joe Biden visits “Road Island” to support Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse

Posted by  ▪  February 25, 2012
Sheldon Whitehouse, the luckiest investor in America, has to go. Support Barry Hinckley.  With recent news of Whitehouse’s abysmal favorability rating, it’s doable.  It would be the shocker of 2012, in a place they are not expecting it. Hinckley just released this web video on The Historic Ocassion of The Visit of The Honorable Joseph…

Hate crimes laws go both ways

Posted by  ▪  February 25, 2012
Can lesbians be charged with a hate crime for beating up a gay man? Why not? Once we make motive an element of a crime, it goes both ways, and all ways. So a Jew can be guilty of an anti-Jewish hate crime, a black of an anti-black hate crime, and in this case in…

Sarah Palin, October 2008

Posted by  ▪  February 24, 2012
A  former editor in chief of Ms. Magazine observed in October 2008: It’s difficult not to froth when one reads, as I did again and again this week, doubts about Sarah Palin’s “intelligence,” coming especially from women such as PBS’s Bonnie Erbe, who, as near as I recall, has not herself heretofore been…

Posted by  ▪  February 24, 2012
Obama on our energy future: “We’re making new investments in the development of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel that’s actually made from a plant-like substance, algae — you’ve got a bunch of algae out here,” Obama said at the University of Miami today. “If we can figure out how to make energy…

28 minutes to energy independence

Posted by  ▪  February 24, 2012
Newt has released a 28 minute video discussing energy independence. (h/t numerous readers) Via Human Events, the video will be broadcast in key markets, in its entirety. Also, it was done entirely from memory, without aid of notes or a teleprompter. Big question: Will people watch a 28 minute video?  Or is it enough…

A public notice about your private history.

Posted by  ▪  February 24, 2012
I don’t worry that some of my information can be easily accessed on the web. I think I’m typical of most people in my generation who have grown accustomed to taking privacy into their own hands. My rule of thumb is this: if it’s a free service on the internet, you’re probably…

Sanity and hope

Posted by  ▪  February 24, 2012
From Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg (h/t @ChuckTodd): The President and the Democrats are indeed doing very well at the outset of 2012, and the Republicans are doing pitifully. They are not unrelated. Republicans in Congress and in the primary battles are driving independents into the Democrats’ camp and consolidating and energizing parts…

Charles M. Blow is the mob

Posted by  ▪  February 23, 2012
I bet the reaction would be quite different if NY Times columnist Charles M. Blow mocked religious Jewish undergarments the way he mocked religious Mormon undergarments in this tweet (h/t Jim Geraghty): But then again, he’s a NY Times columnist with a long history of foul hyperbole directed at the Tea Party movement and conservatives: Welcome to the mob:…

The haunting Specter of Arlen

Posted by  ▪  February 23, 2012
Rick Santorum endorsed Arlen Specter because he was a good establishment Republican in 2004, and that’s what the Republican President wanted.  The precursor to the Tea Party movement backed Pat Toomey. Santorum’s endorsement was no crime.  It was a pure political calculation, one which many others in Santorum’s place would have made. I only focused on…

Standing up for taxpayers is a winning political strategy even in Rhode Island

Posted by  ▪  February 23, 2012
Republicans can learn something from Rhode Island about standing up for taxpayers as a winning political strategy. I have written many time before about the efforts of Democratic Mayor of Providence Angel Taveras, who has taken on school teacher unions and other public sector employees in an attempt to keep Providence from…
