Conservatives better wake up to anti-conservative boycott movements

Posted by  ▪  April 5, 2012
You all know about the secondary boycott of Rush Limbaugh advertisers. Media Matters threw its full weight into the boycott, continues to work on it, and so-called “independent” groups continue to tweet away and call mostly local advertisers. The boycott intimidation tactics failed to remove Limbaugh from radio, but not for lack of…

New neighborhood watchman

Posted by  ▪  April 5, 2012
Um, there’s so much I could say, so many comparisons I could make. But I’m not going to go there.  Because he knows who has been naughty, and I don’t want to get fishy flagged or end up on an #attackwatch list like Fuzzy. From a reader who prefers to remain anonymous since he…

If Romney loses to Obama, it will be because of his supporters not his opponents

Posted by  ▪  April 4, 2012
You knew this was coming, the attempt to blame a Romney loss to Obama on comments made about Romney by other candidates. Jamie Weinstein at The Daily Caller (via HotAir) writes that Newt’s legacy will be that his criticisms of Romney will be featured in Obama ads: If Gingrich’s White House run is…

“I find your comments … borderline offensive”

Posted by  ▪  April 4, 2012
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was interviewed by Doug McIntyre of California radio station 790 KABC regarding Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who was named Chairman of the Democratic National Convention. McIntyre ripped into Villaraigosa’s record, to which Wasserman-Schultz responded: “I really find your comments disappointing and borderline offensive.” Borderline offensive? Offensive as in ….?  You know she…

Anti-Romney conservatives are “like birthers”

Posted by  ▪  April 4, 2012
I knew I shouldn’t have looked back. I have not read Jennifer Rubin in weeks. She has become so odious in her Romneyquest that reading her posts is like sipping poison; it doesn’t kill you but it makes you nauseated. Every time I read one of her insulting pieces it reminds me of the…

Audio expert in Martin case demanded at least six similar voice exemplars in prior case

Posted by  ▪  April 4, 2012
The big headline for the past several days has been that an audio expert hired by The Orlando Sentinel, Thomas J. Owen, had concluded that the person screaming for help on the 911 tape when a neighbor called in was not George Zimmerman because voice biometric analysis of the scream could only find a 48%…

From Linda in Tennessee, taken in late December at the Sportsmans Grill, Franklin TN, sent with the note: Mine is still not equal to Air Force One and Air Force Two jetting off to Hawaii for the tenth vacay of the year.
 

I think polls close tonight

Posted by  ▪  April 3, 2012
Somewhere. If so, and if there are results, at some point I’ll get around to it.  (As I’m writing, Romney wins big in MD)(and also, Wisconsin, now) In the meantime, some updates from prior topics (and maybe some new): Details on the plane crash which killed the founder of Neptunus Lex.  (original post)  And…

It’s the forensics, stupid

Posted by  ▪  April 3, 2012
Piers Morgan interviewed crime writer Patricia Cornwell as to how critical forensics — such as bullet distance and trajectory – will be. Since no one, except perhaps the investigators, has that evidence so far, anyone who is speculating on what happend is just speculating. The transcript is here, and includes a segment with…

Actually, “Good for the Jews”

Posted by  ▪  April 3, 2012
Ah, Facebook.  Via The Shark Tank: Jew hate is nothing new, but within the Democratic National Committee, this is clearly unchartered territory. DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s ol’ staffer and newly named the DNC’s Jewish Outreach Liason Dani Gilbert refers to herself an her fellow khevre (khev’∙reh) as “Jewbags.” Oy Veh! Can you…

Obamaworries

Posted by  ▪  April 3, 2012
The normally supportive commentariat is not happy, for a variety of reasons: My law school classmate Ruth Marcus, WaPo, Obama’s unsettling attack on the Supreme Court: “I would lament a ruling striking down the individual mandate, but I would not denounce it as conservative justices run amok.  Listening to the arguments and…

From seeking justice to obstruction of justice

Posted by  ▪  April 3, 2012
I will grant the Martin family enormous deference in the way they interact with the media.  They lost a child.  Whatever the facts of this case end up being, they lost a child.  Whatever the legal outcome ends ups being, they lost a child.  They are doing what parents are supposed to…

NY Post outdoes even itself

Posted by  ▪  April 3, 2012
This article at the NY Post about Chris Christie’s visit to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem fairly is characterized as “one long fat joke.” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made a huge impression at Israel’s Western Wall yesterday during his first official overseas trip as head of the Garden State. Christie, wearing a yarmulke…

What makes this presidential election different from all other elections?

Posted by  ▪  April 3, 2012
In all other elections we just vote. In this election we vote bitterly. From reader Carroll, spotted in Tucson the other day:
