There’s no such thing as a free health care

Posted by  ▪  March 1, 2012
If free health care costs so much, maybe it’s not free.  Just don’t tell it to the yutes. I’m guessing this is from a doc’s car.  From Linda, who e-mailed this photo with the subject line “nothing extra special …” About this sticker – except it’s continuing relevance.. Parking lot of Heritage Medical office building,…

Who you calling parody?

Posted by  ▪  February 29, 2012
This video explaining how free contraception is a law student human right apparently was not parody.  This video of law students warning 16-year-olds not to go to law school is a parody, a take off on this 16-year-old me video.  (h/t @GabrielMalor) [Update:  Strange, the video now redirects to an “alternate” version, not the original…

NBC: The new Mayor of Ithaca sure reminds us of Obama

Posted by  ▪  February 29, 2012
I guess the comparison to Obama was inevitable, and NBC goes full “deja vu” on the new Mayor of Ithaca, Svante Myrick. I wouldn’t pigeonhole him yet; he ran an insurgent campaign against the entrenched Ithaca Democratic political establishment and also defeated the designated Progressive candidate.  He won with a lot of help from students. Myrick…

Conspiracy is in the eye of the beholder

Posted by  ▪  February 29, 2012
“Some people are much more into conspiracies” … And in an attempt to prove there is no conspiracy, Paul has just released an ad attacking everyone, his first attack on Romney since Iowa (aka The Stone Ages).

Imagine Obama unrestrained by another election

Posted by  ▪  February 29, 2012
Mitt Romney had a very good line in his victory speech last night (emphasis mine): Weve seen enough of this President over the last three years to know that we dont need another four.  President Obama believes he is unchecked by our Constitution.  He is unresponsive to the will of our people. …

Michigan and Arizona primary results

Posted by  ▪  February 28, 2012
Endgame assessment: Very good night for Romney, he has all but beaten back the Santorum surge.  It’s hard to know if outspending Santorum did the trick; Romney spent only about 1/3 going after Santorum in Michigan as he spent going after Newt in Florida, and didn’t need to bring in the establishment…

UAW for Obama, and vice versa

Posted by  ▪  February 28, 2012
Obama gave a speech to the United Auto Workers laced with what Greg Sargeant described as “withering derision”: A key line: “I keep on hearing these same folks talk about values all the time. You want to talk about values? Hard work: That’s a value. Looking out for one another: That’s a…

Another unintended consequence of the higher education bubble

Posted by  ▪  February 28, 2012
Consider this “obligatory.”  And unintended parody. CNS’ headline says Sex-Crazed Co-Eds Going Broke Buying Birth Control: A Georgetown co-ed told Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s hearing that the women in  her law school program are having so much sex that they’re going broke,  so you and I should pay for their birth control. Speaking at a…

Santorum courts Obama-Big Labor Democrats with Robocalls

Posted by  ▪  February 28, 2012
Rick Santorum is running robocalls in Michigan urging Democrats to vote in the Republican primary for Santorum and against Romney because … wait for it … Romney opposed Obama’s auto industry bailout but supported the Wall Street bailout. Got it? The great conservative hope is attacking a Republican for not supporting the auto…

Cicilline vulnerable in RI-01

Posted by  ▪  February 28, 2012
One of my focus races is the attempt by Republican Brendan Doherty to unseat Democrat David Cicilline in RI-01, my home district. Cicilline is very unpopular due to the mess he left behind when he was the Mayor of Providence.  While Cicilline was able to hide the problems when he ran for…

Retire Richard Lugar, Elect Richard Mourdock

Posted by  ▪  February 28, 2012
There is a prime opportunity in the Indiana Republican primary to elect a solid conservative, Richard Mourdock, and to retire Obama’s favorite Republican, Richard Lugar, who has an abysmal voting record. I will be supporting Mourdock, and I hope you will help with this important race. I first wrote about Mourdock back in November.  Since…

The handwriting on the wall

Posted by  ▪  February 28, 2012
Have you noticed, there have been a lot of handwritten, or in this case painted, anti-Obama signs on vehicles lately.  It’s almost as it a mere bumper sticker cannot contain the rage. Thanks to Jane from Olympia, Washington: Thought you might like this—there was more writing on the other side of the van,…
