Blogger Bernie Quigly at The Hill, in what now is a classic, raises a novel defense, Elizabeth Warren’s true American lineage: Elizabeth Warren might be excused for wanting to be Native American. She can claim an old American soul, going back generations in Oklahoma. In  the heartland it is almost universal for those…

From reader Nate, sent on May 13: I’m a regular reader of your blog, and love the bumper sticker page. Here is my contribution. Yesterday was the gay pride march in Northampton, MA which made for great opportunities for bumper sticker photos. Sure enough, here is the obligatory “car covered in…

The 100,000

At 8:31 p.m. Eastern tonight we received the 100,000th comment, by Oregon Mike, who hasn’t been a frequent commenter here but has been commenting since July 2011. 100,000 isn’t a lot for many blogs, where the use of third-party software like Disqus encourages free-for-alls.  I probably could up page views significantly with such software,…

Pep talk, redux

Still liking this pep talk from March 22, 2010: Last night was bad. The law passed by the Senate and House really is that horrible. But it’s the morning after, and your mourning should be over. The mainstream media and the nutroots will try to demoralize you, and there will be plenty of gloat…

Harvard Law succeeds in taking down anti-Holder Fast and Furious protest website

Posted by
5/22/2012 at 5:24pm
This is an update to my post yesterday regarding the protest organized against Eric Holder’s visit to Harvard Law School tomorrow, specifically his stonewalling the Fast and Furious investigations.  The protest was organized by a website using the name Harvard Law Unbound which has been operating since early April. Despite the fact…

Mia B. Love – “One of the 10 most important races in the country this year”

Posted by

It’s always interesting to see how the MSM covers a story we have been covering for several months, but the MSM acts amazed. This time it’s Mia B. Love, being interviewed by Jonathan Karl of ABC News: Mia Love is unlike any Congressional candidate ever — she is African-American, she is Mormon, and…

I posted some links over the weekend to the saga of Aaron Worthing (Walker) and someone named Brett Kimberlin.  I had never heard of Kimberlin before, or if I had it only was in connection with Walker’s continuing legal difficulties.  Apparently there is a long background of conflict between Kimberlin and…

I reported last night on plans to protest via posters on campus the appearance of Eric Holder tomorrow at Harvard Law School regarding the Fast and Furious controversy.  At the end of my post last night I joked: I wonder how long they will stay up.  And how long before half of the…

For the first time in my adult life I believe Romney might beat Obama

Posted by
5/22/2012 at 9:30am
Why now? Because Team Obama is proving itself to be too smart by half, and too incompetent by three-quarters. There is a way to do Bain, but I’m done giving that advice.  Rehashing old news, which already has been out for months, isn’t going to do the trick. Cory Booker stuck a fork in…

When Elizabeth Warren has lost Ed Schultz

Posted by
5/22/2012 at 8:24am
Via The Free Beacon, an Elizabeth Warren surrogate appeared on the Ed Show. What’s interesting is not just that the surrogate still insists that Warren has Native American heritage, but that Ed pushed her on it and basically says to fess up: SCHULTZ: Wait a minute. Did she ever put down on…

Signs are popping up all over. From reader Angie: This is not a bumper sticker, but traveling along the coast in southern OREGON, we came upon this rather large sign. The small town seemed to be struggling. Maybe there’s hope. Follow up email from Angie: Drove by it again today, and the opposition has painted over…

Protesting Eric Holder over Fast and Furious at Harvard Law

Posted by

Eric Holder has been selected as Harvard Law School’s Class Day Speaker.  I don’t remember if there was a Class Day when I was there, but I would not have attended anyway for reasons already known to readers. Holder will be greeted with posters protesting Holder’s stalling of the congressional investigation into…

Spotted: the director of the upcoming documentary “Hating Breitbart” clowning the Occupy protesters by joining their crowd Monday afternoon: Better yet, Rebel Pundit got out and led the crowd in chants, holding a “Breitbart Is Here” sign: Seems just like the time Andrew Breitbart led Code Pink anti-capitalism protesters through the streets on his…

Move to change propaganda laws opens up Cold War argument

Posted by
5/21/2012 at 6:13pm
An old Cold War argument has been resurrected with the news that an amendment allowing U.S. propaganda to be broadcast within our borders has been passed out of the house along with the Defense Authorization Act. Should the State Department be authorized to allow its propaganda to be broadcast to us in…

That seems to be the attitude of Massachusetts Democrats, as reported by The Boston Herald: Bay State Democrats are standing by their woman, saying they’re confident in embattled Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren — now three weeks into a persistent scandal over her claims of Native American heritage — though critics say she’ll…

I have not had as much of a chance to focus on the Texas Senate primary as I would have liked.  My inclination was to back Ted Cruz early on, but I just didn’t have the time to do the research.  But I have been following the race, listening to Cruz’s interviews,…

Someone’s in trouble: Newark N.J. Mayor Cory Booker (D) expressed reserve about the Obama campaign’s Bain strategy against Mitt Romney, telling “Meet The Press” viewers on Sunday that he was “uncomfortable” with the line of attacks. “This kind of stuff is nauseating to me on both sides,” Booker said. “It’s nauseating to…
