Kulaks raising their banners high

It’s not just Ray Gaster who is raising the “I built this” banner. Readers have forwarded photos they just took of other businesses with similar signage. From Sara: Hi @Legal Insurrection. Here’s what a sign business in Boca Raton, Florida is prominently displaying. Eight minutes ago in 91-degree post-Isaac sunshine. From Sara, a Friend of the…

“nor can a peace be brokered”

Posted by

The title isn’t about the Middle East, although it could be. It’s John Nolte’s persuasive analysis of the mainstream media in light of the hot mic comment initially thought to come from an ABC News staff member that the Romneys are “happy to party while black people drown”: The media cannot be reasoned…

Ann Romney skewers that big talking phony, without mentioning his name

Ann Romney skewers that big talking phony, without mentioning his name

The key moment for me in Ann Romney’s speech was when she said that Mitt doesn’t like to talk about how he helps others: Mitt doesn’t like to talk about how he has helped others because he sees it as a privilege, not a political talking point. That was the home run of…

Ray Gaster has been in the news because of the sign he posted outside his business. The sign was called to my attention by a carpet cleaner working in our house who, though not the business owner, shared Mr. Gaster’s sentiments.  I did a short post about it, The “you didn’t build…

The line up is packed tonight, including Mia Love, who just finished her speech: If you haven’t contributed to her Money Bomb, what are you waiting for? Need more motivation, read what some smug creep at The Nation says about people like Mia, RNC Schedule: Tokenism Extraordinaire.  Tokens? People like that writer are the real…

Frustration boiling over

Dem candidate in VA-05 hits videographer

Posted by
8/28/2012 at 5:00pm
Democrats are getting really punchy. Elizabeth Warren’s “cab driver” attacked a videographer the other day, and a week ago a Democratic candidate in Virginia-05 took the law into his own hands as well, via NBC29: Eight seconds of video from a General John Douglass political event in Farmville earlier this month is bubbling…

Court throws out Texas redistricting plans

Posted by
8/28/2012 at 3:18pm
A three judge panel in D.C. has thrown out all Texas redistricing maps which were subject to challenge by the DOJ.  It’s a monster 154-page decision, embedded below, so it will take time to figure out what was done to which districts. Because Texas is a covered jurisdiction under section 5 of…

The Bow is back

Remember The Bow. You know, the one which the White House denied was a bow, in one of the earlier displays of the White House thinking we are stupid: “It wasn’t a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he’s taller than King Abdullah,” said an Obama aide, who spoke on the…

Elizabeth Warren’s CabbieGate – caught misleading about connection to assailant

Posted by
8/28/2012 at 12:01pm
Can the Warren campaign be upfront about anything? Yesterday a video was released of a man assaulting a videographer filming Warren. Warren was just feet away from the assault as was her staff, and did nothing at the time.  The Warren campaign distanced itself from the man, saying he was a mere cab driver. The…

Newt chews Chris Matthews’ race card and spits it out

Posted by

Chris Matthews is pushing the race card really hard, as is MNSBC and much of the mainstream media. I sense panic, complete and utter panic. Everything is a race whistle to this crowd (is using the term “crowd” racist, Chris, or at least a dog whistle?). Matthews came loaded for bear yesterday with Reince…

Mia B. Love will be speaking at the RNC tonight with the theme “The America I Know.” As you know from prior coverage here, she’s in a tough fight in the newly formed and heavily Republican Utah-04 district against incumbent Jim Matheson, who has family name recognition (his father was a former Governor) and a…

I’ll let you finish the sentence in light of the bumper sticker below. From reader Amy, who took this photo a few days ago in Aurora, CO: I found a bumper sticker for you in the humor category. It made me laugh anyway, and I thought I’d point out the driver is female. I…

I guess this is the day for anecdotes. First, the friend who texted “Omg!” after seeing 2016 Obama’s America. Then, the carpet cleaning guy today who called this photo to our attention when told about this blog: (Background on the sign here and just about everywhere.) I spoke with him about it.  He doesn’t own…

One of our closest friends in Rhode Island, someone we adore, someone not prone to hyperbole, a Northeast Republican, bless her heart, someone who never texts me … Not the type of person who, if she blogged, would make excessive use of exclamation points … Just sent a text to my wife and me…
