Providence begs for mercy, probably won’t get it

Posted by  ▪  February 14, 2012
The City of Providence, in my home State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, is in dire financial trouble, as I have posted here many times before. The City, with its large tax-exempt university base and decades-long history of lush public sector benefits, has struggled under new Mayor Angel Taveras to cover…

Media Matter’s war on Fox is old news

Posted by  ▪  February 14, 2012
The latest installment of The Daily Caller’s exposé on Media Matters concerns an e-mail regarding an action plan against Fox News which included hiring private investigators to go after Fox News executives, lawfare, and other acts of disruption: A little after 1 p.m. on Sept. 29, 2009, Karl Frisch emailed a memo to…

Newt: National Review call for him to drop out is “silly”

Posted by  ▪  February 14, 2012
Yesterday, the editors of National Review called on Newt to drop out of the race in favor of Santorum: When he led Santorum in the polls, he urged the Pennsylvanian to leave the race. On his own arguments the proper course for him now is to endorse Santorum and exit. Well, as least NR…

Rejection

That’s the bumper sticker I’m waiting for. Thanks to reader Steve, who writes: Saw these at the PetSmart on Charlotte in West Nashville, TN. Other than noticing they are a hockey fan, I’ll let you decipher where this person stands on the issues.

Can you say …

“Global Minimum Tax’ — of course we can, that way businesses not only can’t flee to other states, they can’t flee to other countries! “He’s a lying SOB” or maybe he just tells people one thing in private and another thing in public. “Don’t actually write that your prof. is hot” – at…

Media Matters for Obama

Posted by  ▪  February 13, 2012
Media Matters for America really is Media Matters for Obama, but you already knew that from the frequent posts here about it. Among other things, MMFA employs the most expensive proofreader in America, and the most aggressive and unapologetic purveyor of the “Israel-Firster” smear. It’s quite a group. Now The Daily Caller has a…

Hang in there Newt

Posted by  ▪  February 13, 2012
Yes, my thoughts exactly: National Review lost any credibility to chime in on the primaries when it ran its infamous Marvin the Martian cover and issue in late December. At least Andy McCarthy understood at the time: For the Editors to single out Gingrich for this kind of raking — particularly when his accomplishments…

Contraception Tweet of the Day

Posted by  ▪  February 13, 2012
Would it be premature to call this the early leader for Tweet of the Year? Maybe, because considering who won last year, we may need to redistribute the honor so that less-gifted Twitter users do not have their self-esteem damaged. From the 2012 CPAC Humor Blogger of the Year, @iowahawkblog: (h/t Maetenloch at AoSHQ)

Posted by  ▪  February 13, 2012
I really need to stop using Twitter. Legal Insurrection receives CPAC award.  BTW, John Hawkins has photos and more from CPAC and the Red Carpet Bloggers Awards. in Chief.  Strong contender for bumper sticker of the year. Will we let them take this guy down?  Gov. Scott Walker needs our support. Minimalistic Momentumitis, we have…

Remember when no one understood why ABC asked about contraception at the NH Republican debate?

Posted by  ▪  February 13, 2012
Remember when George Stephanopoulos, at the New Hampshire Republican debate on January 7, brought up and harped on whether the candidates thought states could ban contraception? Everyone, at least on our side of the aisle, shook their heads in disbelief as to why Stephanopoulos was bringing up the issue.  There was no active…

Not that anyone’s counting

Posted by  ▪  February 13, 2012
Funny, I don’t see a “stop” button. A feature, not a bug. From reader Bill in Florida, who spotted this on a counter, and laments: I have been seeing lots of good bumper stickers, one on a prius, but alas, traffic only runs unimpeded when I want to take photos of other people…

What is an

Posted by  ▪  February 12, 2012
anti-Israeli liar and agitator capable of? Maybe almost setting off violence by deliberately spreading false rumors regarding a pending Jewish destruction of the Al-aqsa Mosque.  He’s not in Egypt, or Saudi Arabia, or Yemen.  He’s right here, and he runs the nasty Electronic Intifada blog, and was active at the recent BDS conference at…

Stop making excuses for Santorum’s endorsement of Arlen Specter

Posted by  ▪  February 12, 2012
I previously posted about Rick Santorum’s endorsement in 2004 of Arlen Specter against a challenge from Pat Toomey, in what was a precursor to the Tea Party v. Establishment fights to come. One of the unintended consequences of Specter’s reelection was that in 2009 Specter switched parties, and his vote was critical to…

The Asphyxiation of an Industry

Posted by  ▪  February 12, 2012
The Obama administration has been tightening the grip around the collective necks of the fossil fuel industry. The goal is of course to kill it and nowhere is this more self evident than with oil exploration. The most recent example is the studying to death of the Keystone pipeline. Allegedly, the Obama…
