You’ve got to be fracking kidding me

Posted by  ▪  February 18, 2012
Thanks to reader Rick who spotted this vehicle  in Ithaca, and writes: I was hoping to catch the plume of greasy black smoke which I had previously seen coming out of the exhaust pipe, but I shot too soon. But we gotta stop that fracking. Talk about small world, I had spotted the same…

Pro-Walker signature verification effort needs your help this weekend

Posted by  ▪  February 17, 2012
As I reported the other day, petition signature checkers supporting Gov. Scott Walker are on track to identify between 100,000-200,000 invalid signatures on recall petitions. That number does not even include duplicate signatures, and we know that duplicates are a big problem. Supporters of Gov. Walker, however, need more time to go through the approximately…

Yes, you can be conservative and not support Santorum

Posted by  ▪  February 17, 2012
I still support Newt, but I’m not oblivious to the challenges currently facing his campaign. So what if …. Should the race come down to Santorum or Romney, I’d have to think about it, as shocking as that may sound given my criticisms of Romney.  That’s not so much a vote of confidence…

De Whine

Posted by  ▪  February 17, 2012
Mike DeWine, Attorney General of Ohio, is switching from Mitt to Rick, and he used to be a Tim supporter, so this is big news: Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum was in line for a key endorsement on Friday from Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, who had earlier endorsed Mitt Romney, CNN…

Euro Solutions

Posted by  ▪  February 17, 2012
The European Union is in deep water but that, thankfully, hasn’t stopped the Europeans from laughing at themselves. einige Schadenfreude (some Schadenfreude): “Dinner for One” (with subtitles) There are apparently a series of videos with Merkel and Sarko dubbed over discussing the Euro Crisis. It’s pretty funny … if you’re on this side of the…

Pat Buchanan is correct

Posted by  ▪  February 17, 2012
I don’t necessarily agree with everything Pat Buchanan says or writes, but his purge from MSNBC is a sign of the times, and his characterization is correct: The modus operandi of these thought police at Color of Change and ADL is to brand as racists and anti-Semites any writer who dares to…

Malaise and disgust in blog-over country

Posted by  ▪  February 17, 2012
Deep down in Update III to a Thighgate post, Robert Stacy McCain makes an observation which is spot on about the mood out here in blog-over country: There has been a lot of crazy on the blogosphere today that had nothing to do with me and, discussing it with Jimmie Bise Jr. this afternoon, we…

“truly frightening. Truly.”

Posted by  ▪  February 16, 2012
For everyone who says that under no circumstances would they vote for a particular Republican candidate if that person were the nominee, ponder this list of potential Obama nominee replacements for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a second Obama term. Be sure to go far down the list to some politicians who are…

A new online newspaper launched by David Horovitz (former Editor in Chief of The Jerusalem Post, not David Horowitz of FrontPage Mag), via Honest Reporting (h/t Anneipt).

Mitt, Rick and Ron to Georgia: Drop Dead

Posted by  ▪  February 16, 2012
CNN has cancelled a scheduled March 1 debate in Georgia just ahead of Super Tuesday after Romney, followed by Santorum and Paul, announced they would not participate. This makes perfect sense, of course.  Why should Republican candidates pay respect to the heart of the South, a region which will be key to…

Hoekstra ad actress recants and begs forgiveness

Posted by  ▪  February 16, 2012
I previously posted regarding Pete Hoekstra’s commercial about jobs being shipped to China, and the cries of racism because an Asian woman played the role of an Asian woman in China in the commercial. The woman’s identity was outed by a blog called Angry Asian Man, which noted what was about to…

Florida Republicans seek to shield Allen West redistricting documents

Posted by  ▪  February 16, 2012
I posted in late January about the redistricting of Allen West by the Republican controlled Florida legislature, including reports from the Florida blog The Shark Tank (which won Best State-Level Blog at CPAC this year) that West specifically was targeted. Republicans in control of the process denied targeting West, asserting that changes…

No couch in video

Posted by  ▪  February 16, 2012
So it’s okay.  (h/t Terri in Tip Line) The point is not that there’s anything wrong with it, but the hypocrisy (which applies even more to Romney) is dripping, considering how Newt was raked over the coals for a video with Nancy Pelosi which did not endorse any specific legislation or result…
