So tell me about Dan Bongino

Posted by  ▪  April 7, 2012
Operation Counterweight is just taking shape for 2012.  Redistricting has slowed down my process of identifying House races. But in the Senate, I’m focused on Richard Mourdock’s primary challenge to Dick Lugar, and Barry Hinckley’s general election challenge to Sheldon Whitehouse. As you know, the theory behind Operation Counterweight is that we have to…

Teaching @Arbys about responsibility

Posted by  ▪  April 7, 2012
Not taking responsibility (h/t reader Tony): More about Arby’s here. If you are on Twitter, you can reach Arby’s at @arbys, or at its Facebook page, or at its Contact page. There’s probably not much we can do to prevent cowardly companies from giving into boycott threats, except to teach them responsibility.

DNR Obamacare

Posted by  ▪  April 7, 2012
If Obamacare were a Red Solo Cup and in Texas, it would look something like this vehicle. From reader Chris in Dripping Springs, Texas: Professor, I read your site daily and thought you might like these. Filling up at a local gas station (paying $4 a gallon) and this was next to my truck. God…

Their wars

Their War On Women Moe Lane updates on the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s fundraising problems resulting from the left-wing boycott of Komen after Komen dropped sponsorship of Planned Parenthood, but then caved in to pressure and let go a top executive: The first explanation is that pro-choice feminists are incredibly nasty, spite-filled, and…

Wasserman Schultz payoff to big Dem donor with DNC job for daughter

Posted by  ▪  April 6, 2012
What should have been a two-bit, one-day, not-really-scandal involving photos Dani Gilbert, the new DNC liason to the Jewish community, took a few years back is turning into something much more.  By all appearances, Debbie Wasserman Schultz gave a payoff to big Dem donors by giving their daughter a job at the DNC to…

The Ultimate, and Penultimate, Resort…

Posted by  ▪  April 6, 2012
CEI has published a study about private property laws in outer space by Rand Simberg, one of the best people qualified to write on the topic. In sum, Simberg claims that the U.S. should recognize claims on the Moon, Mars, and asteroids and gives a loose foundation for the U.S. government’s access to establishing recognized…

War on women continues, Senate candidate calls opponent “whore”

Posted by  ▪  April 6, 2012
Don’t expect Media Matters to boycott the Senate candidate. Because the candidate is a Democrat. And an Israel-hater. She called her male primary opponent a “whore” for AIPAC.  Via Mediaite: “I’m dealing with a whore here who sells his soul to AIPAC [The American Israel Public Affairs Committee], who will say anything for the…

CNN proves “beyond a reasonable doubt” why cases should not be tried in the media

Posted by  ▪  April 6, 2012
If it were not for the fact that a young man is dead, the factual accounts and investigations in the media of the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman would be laughable. There is no better proof that cases should not be tried in the media than the accounts of whether…

No water was harmed

Places I remember

Posted by  ▪  April 5, 2012
For blogs, my “Blogs I Read” list in the sidebar and many of the Blogs to Note are my go to places.  But, I’m constantly on the prowl for better places to get “news” – whatever that means. As you know, I dropped Politico as a regular visit long ago, although sometimes it’s…

Here we go: Lugar up only single digits over Mourdock

Posted by  ▪  April 5, 2012
This is very big news (h/t Pwire), as it punctures the Richard Lugar air of inevitability: U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar is in the most precarious position of his political career since autumn 1974 when he unsuccessfully challenged Democratic incumbent Birch Bayh. A Howey/DePauw Indiana Battleground Poll released today reveals Lugar with a 42-35%…
