Even a stopped clock.

Posted by  ▪  February 10, 2012

Jeffrey Sachs, darling of the left, innovator of crazy theories & misguided foreign aid efforts, has called out Paul Krugman’s approach to economics:  “Paul has a powerful bully pulpit in his New York Times column, and he’s been on one theme for three years,” Sachs said. Krugman has…

Blaming the victim

Posted by  ▪  February 10, 2012
John Hinderaker at Power Line lays the blame for an eventual loss to Obama primarily at the feet of Newt: Nevertheless, if you are a Republican, the vibes are very bad.

Anti-Israel sickness on display at U. Penn.

Posted by  ▪  February 10, 2012
Israel Matzav and  JWeekly have good write-ups of the anti-Israel derangement at the University of Pennsylvania, which hosted a Boycott Divest Sanction conference.  Not Boycott Divest Sanction Syria, or Saudi Arabia, or Iran … just Israel. We have featured these anti-Semitic — yes that’s what they are by their actions – before, but they are far…

But what did you evolve into?

Posted by  ▪  February 10, 2012
If being an Obamabot is the end result of evolution, we would have been better off staying knuckle-dragging troglodytes. From reader, student and author @BlakeSeitz, taken in a parking garage at the University of Georgia:

Pander the Panda Bear?

Posted by  ▪  February 9, 2012
Seems like most of the conservative blogosphere is at CPAC.  I haven’t ever done CPAC.  I’m a loner by nature, the type of rugged individualist that made this country great.  But I digress. This video by Robert Stacy McCain made me feel car sick from the shaking, so I don’t think I’ll…

“Obama-Firsters”

Posted by  ▪  February 9, 2012
Well, it’s not the title of Glenn Greenwald’s post, Repulsive progressive hypocrisy (h/t @Steven_Swenson), but it could be. Here goes: During the Bush years, Guantanamo was the core symbol of right-wing radicalism and what was back then referred to as the “assault on American values and the shredding of our Constitution”: so much so…

Insulting our intelligence appears to be Romney’s campaign strategy

Posted by  ▪  February 9, 2012
As was documented by Jeffrey Lord at The American Spectator, the floor speech Newt gave about Reagan’s “failing” Soviet policy in 1986 was filled with praise for Reagan and the criticisms of the policy raised in the speech were common among conservatives.  The suggestion that Newt was against Reagan or insulting Re…

Can you say “brokered convention”? (Reader poll added)

Posted by  ▪  February 9, 2012
From Sean Trende at Real Clear Politics: But for the first time, the two way faceoff doesn’t seem inevitable, and a viable path to a brokered convention is beginning to emerge… To see it, let’s examine a map of U.S. counties and how they have voted so far. Blue counties backed Romney, red…

Oh, lag

Posted by  ▪  February 9, 2012
When I first read it, I thought it said “nag.” Apologies to Herb, but in being forced to parent against the extracurricular political agendas which seep into the curricula of the liberal Santa Monica-Malibu school system, I often feel like “The Lonely Bulls**t Fighter.” I guess the Komen Foundation retreating with its tail…
