WaPo web traffic is a terrible thing to waste

Jennifer Rubin needs an intervention.  Someone needs to convince her to stop beclowning herself in the Mittquest, Gingrich: The phony intellectual: When many in the mainstream media and far too many conservatives who should know better swoon over [Newt's] pronouncements, the cannier on the right and left justifiably roll their eyes in disgust….

Elizabeth Warren decides not to mess with her day job

Posted by  ▪  November 18, 2011
Elizabeth Warren claimed to have provided the intellectual foundation for the Occupy movement, and of course, articulated one of the most pure redistributionist rationales which made her a hero of the Occupy movement.

Doers v. Talkers

Posted by  ▪  November 18, 2011
Makes perfect sense.  Both car owners believe in freedom for all, but only one is willing to do something about it. Thanks to reader Joel who writes: Seen today as I walked to my car in the parking lot in Westlake Village (Ca). Of course, just next to it on the bumper’s left side…

Open (not Newt/Romney/Cain)

Posted by  ▪  November 17, 2011
Trying my best to break the headlock Newt, Romney and Cain have placed on this blog. The rest of the world is falling apart: Who coulda predicted:  Israel watches as world rejects strict sanctions on Iran Only 4% of Republicans trust Michele Bachmann with a nuke.

Guardians of conservatism unite against flip-flopper Newt

Posted by  ▪  November 17, 2011
Thank you Jennifer, Michael, Gene, Quin, Ann, and others, for telling us that Newt Gingrich is unacceptable as a nominee because he took some positions in the past that were not conservative. I don’t know where we’d end up without you. At least we have one candidate whose record is clean: Just before Mitt Romney…

Time to go negative?

Posted by  ▪  November 17, 2011
When I saw this Michelle Bachmann ad my first thought was, “Don’t go there, Michele, this will not help you.”  But on second thought, why not? I have been in favor of niceness so far, but I wondering whether it’s gone on long enough.  Why shouldn’t the candidates face the types of challenges…

Posted by  ▪  November 17, 2011
The Romney trolls have come out in full force since I ran my post yesterday, Why I Support Newt Gingrich. Here’s an e-mail I received this morning (emphasis mine): You seem to have been a day early in your Gingrich endorsement, precisely because he has been slinking around under the radar with a…

Will we ever get around to vetting Mitt Romney?

Posted by  ▪  November 17, 2011
Newt Gingrich appeared on the Mark Levin Show last night to address a variety of issues.  Levin has been pretty harsh towards Newt at times in the past. Thanks to The Right Scoop for the audio: I find it very interesting that while Gingrich is more than willing to go on shows where he…

I don’t know what it is about septic trucks that brings out the best in readers.  After running a photo of a political message on a septic truck I received multiple photos from readers, including this from reader Joe who wrote: I saw the bumper sticker photo you posted this morning and…

Ann Coulter: Forget everything I ever said about Romney losing to Obama

Posted by  ▪  November 16, 2011
Ann Coulter is going after Newt Gingrich now because Newt has not been sufficiently consistent over the years, and because Romney is inevitable and will beat Obama: The mainstream media keep pushing alternatives to Mitt Romney not only because they are terrified of running against him, but also because they want to…

Shocking – Democrats behind “independent” recall group in WI

Posted by  ▪  November 16, 2011
The recall effort against Scott Walker is being led by United Wisconsin, which bills itself as a non-partisan group. Of course, that’s nonsense, this a Democratic effort through and through, as reported by WISC Madison: Members of United Wisconsin, the group coordinating the recall effort against Gov. Scott Walker, said they are a…

The most articulate advocate of freedom.

Posted by  ▪  November 16, 2011
I’m not one for commemorating anniversaries and dates. And, even if I was, I can’t attach a date to most of my important revelations and discoveries. That being said, I do have an exception. Milton Friedman died exactly five years ago today. I remember this well because I had never heard of him…

ABC poisons its Gabby Giffords special with Palin Derangement Syndrome

Posted by  ▪  November 16, 2011
The ABC News interview with Gabrielle Giffords was worth watching except for one moment, when ABC decided that it could not put on a widely-watched full hour program without smearing Sarah Palin by trying to connect Palin’s electoral map to the Giffords shooting (via Newsbusters): I have addresed this smear many times…

Why I Support Newt Gingrich

Posted by  ▪  November 16, 2011
I have been agnostic on the Republican primary so far, but the time for choosing has arrived. For the reasons set forth below, I believe that the primaries will come down to Mitt Romney versus Newt Gingrich.  As such, the choice is not between Newt Gingrich and some hypothetical more perfect conservative candidate, as Newt’s…
