Liberal seeds of doubt on Limbaugh boycott likelihood of success

Posted by  ▪  March 11, 2012
If you only read Media Matters and Think Progress, you’d think Rush Limbaugh was on the verge of losing his radio empire because 50 or more advertisers “dropped” him. While Limbaugh has lost some important advertisers, it appears that many of the advertisers dropping him never advertised in the first place, and…

The Trivialization of Joe Continues

Posted by  ▪  March 11, 2012
Joe the Plumber is back and this time he is fighting for keeps, a place in Congress. What can he expect this time from the main stream media? If the past is any guide, a pretty rough go and then some. Think of the Christine O’Donnell treatment on steroids. Joe is used…

Rick Santorum’s Higher Ed Crusade, cont.

Posted by  ▪  March 11, 2012
I’ve railed against the racket that higher education has become on this page before. I think more people should be able to abstain from going to college and I think the government should stop “helping” students. That being said, I also think Rick Santorum’s populist revulsion towards academia is based on faulty…

“No taxation without rubberization”

Posted by  ▪  March 11, 2012
Mark Steyn views the Fluke fiasco from Down Under: The brave middle-aged schoolgirl had the courage to stand up in public and demand that someone else pay for her sex life…. …. No taxation without rubberization, as the Minutemen said. The shot heard round the world, and all that…. No, the most basic issue here is…

Not The Saturday Night Card Game

Posted by  ▪  March 10, 2012
Greetings from the Lone Star State, where it’s cold and rainy (in Dallas). Because of pre-travel, travel, meetings, etc., I am unable to provide you with the usual searing insight into the human condition, just links: If chanting USA! USA! USA! is racist, what is chanting Si Se Puede!? Did Racism Drive Gay Activist…

A Castle too Far

Posted by  ▪  March 10, 2012
Over the last past twenty years or so, states have been strengthening the “Castle Doctrine” affording homeowners’ greater protection when they use deadly force against invaders. It is common sense that when one is in one’s home and an intruder appears one can resort to deadly force to protect oneself without fear…

The Olympic Sized Drain

Posted by  ▪  March 10, 2012
While I lived in London this past summer, I became more acquainted with The Adam Smith Institute – a fine libertarian think tank based in London. I usually read their blog, which is pretty euro-centric, and reading it really highlights the differences between the two continents. Sometimes, though, I see a lot…

From Chuck Jaffe at MarketWatch, Don’t ‘rush’ to Carbonite shares (h/t commenter Eliot Ness): When Carbonite Inc. stock took a quick plunge this week, there…

“That, Madame, is intellectual baby-talk”

Posted by  ▪  March 10, 2012
Monckton’s Schenectady showdown, h/t reader John: As they filed in, Lord Monckton was chatting contentedly to a quaveringly bossy woman with messy blonde hair who was head of the college environmental faction. Her group had set up a table at the door of the auditorium, covered in slogans scribbled on messy bits…

People who live in anti-conservative misogynistic houses should not throw indignation

Posted by  ▪  March 10, 2012
Rush Limbaugh used an analogy including the words slut and prostitute, and the liberal media and political sphere went wild. It was just what Media Matters, Think Progress, and others needed to organize attacks on advertisers in an attempt to force Limbaugh off the air. The self-righteous indignation that a woman had been insulted…
