Posted by  ▪  March 7, 2012

Super Tuesday the day after

Posted by  ▪  March 7, 2012
Because of a number of distractions, I couldn’t devote much time to yesterday’s primaries yesterday, but here’s my net assessment, followed by some links: Mitt Romney is the luckiest politician in recent memory.  He barely eked out a victory in Ohio and thereby dominates the headlines, while losing almost every other key…

Maybe the readers are right, and sunshine is not enough

Posted by  ▪  March 7, 2012
There’s something Bill Maher understands. What goes around comes around. Media Matters and Think Progress can organize a campaign to attack Rush Limbaugh’s advertisers as a means — they hope — of forcing him off the air.  But what goes around comes around. And it will. So Maher has come to Limbaugh’s defense not on…

Go Coexist yourself

Posted by  ▪  March 7, 2012
As I have said before, they don’t really want to Coexist. And at this point, I’m not sure I want to, either. From reader Brownyn, who has had prior experience with the coexisters: Saw this car as we pulled onto our street here in Tustin, CA this evening – hope they’re not new neighbors! :)…

State-by-State vote results: NY Times. 11:00 p.m. -  Santorum is up by a couple of thousand votes with 86% reporting, but the talking heads are saying some key Romney precincts are not fully reported, so it is possible and maybe likely he will eke out a very tiny win.  I’m not staying…

Posted by  ▪  March 6, 2012
On Saturday, March 3, 2012, Carbonite announced that it was dropping its advertising on the Rush Limbaugh Show even after Limbaugh had apologized to Sandra Fluke for certain comments made regarding Ms. Fluke.

No Country for old Free Exercise Clauses

Posted by  ▪  March 6, 2012
Commenter CWLsun put together a list of links in the Tip Line regarding the explicit plan of various law school branches of Students for Reproductive Freedom to establish secular contraceptive policies at Catholic educational institutions.

Only the Tea Party, Christians, Republicans, and Conservatives are allowed to be portrayed as everything Hollywood actually is

Posted by  ▪  March 6, 2012
