Politico’s BHO Moment

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2011
The homepage of Politico this morning resembled the now-infamous Esquire ode de love to Barack Obama. Obama as heir to the Martin Luther King, Jr. legacy, marching arm-in-arm with those who walked arm-in-arm with Dr. King: Except that the story was not quite at the cover indicated, focusing not on Obama’s unity with…

Let me guess, UN will charge Israel with animal cruelty

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2011
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to post a good Stuxnet story.  Stuxnet, you will recall, is the malicious malware which has plagued the Iranian nuclear program and which is blamed – without proof — on Israel. The PJ Tatler notes that an Iranian attempt this week to launch a monkey into…

Big Government is launching a crowdsourcing project for a cache of documents obtained regarding the organization and implementation of the Occupy Wall Street movement (via Ace, who is participating): In keeping with the new media notion of crowdsourcing–enthusiastically embraced by the mainstream media when trawling through Sarah Palin’s emails–Big Government will be providing…

RI Gov. Linc Chafee gets to protect murderer from feds

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2011
Back in June I posted about how RI Gov. Linc Chafee was refusing to turn Jason Wayne Pleau over to the feds because Pleau potentially was subject to the death penalty in connection with a murder committed on the steps of a federal bank.  The feds never indicated whether or not they would actually…

Now they want to #OccupyJudaism

Posted by  ▪  October 13, 2011
There have been some highly publicized anti-Semitic outbursts at the Occupy Wall Street protests, as well as claims of anti-Semitism lodged against the organizing group, AdBusters. So now some progressive Jews have formed an Occupy Judaism movement presumably to deflect from the criticism and to mainstream Jewish progressives into the various Occupy groups: As…

Rules for WI Radicals

Posted by  ▪  October 13, 2011
Via Charlie Sykes, here are some of them, click to the link for all of them: Never acknowledge conservative victories as legitimate. Rely on Dane County judges whenever possible. Elections only matter if liberals win. Private businesses, families, personal lives are all fair game. Get the Mainstream media to say that “both sides’…

Obama fundraising fail

Posted by  ▪  October 13, 2011
Obama raised $42 million for his campaign in the third quarter, plus another $27.3 million for the DNC.  Naturally, the top line $70 million joint number is being hyped. These numbers come from an Obama campaign statement, the official FEC report has not yet been released, so we don’t know details such…

What was that Shakespeare line about political scientists?

Posted by  ▪  October 13, 2011
Florida Governor Rick Scott is proposing refocusing funding away from liberal arts programs at state universities and colleges, which has various groups accusing Scott of being anti-anthropology, or something like that.  Instapundit has the story and lots of reader comments. Let me suggest that Scott is not going far enough, and should follow the…

“Miss Her Yet?” Debate Retweet of the Night

Posted by  ▪  October 12, 2011
Looking at all the non-Romney candidates last night, I kept thinking, “Miss her yet?”  (Note:  If someone could do the graphic, I’d love to post it.) Particularly after this question and answer: TUMULTY: Congressman Gingrich — Speaker Gingrich, Medicare is going broke.  Consider the fact that half of all Medicare spending is done in…

About last night’s debate

Posted by  ▪  October 12, 2011
The more I see Rick Perry in action the more I like him, but the more I get the feeling that he’s not up to the task of defeating Romney, much less Obama.  I’m not writing him off, at all, but he has to play a long game.  It may not…

Three years old

October 12, 2008, a day which shall live in infamy. The day of the first post at this thing called a blog which some guy decided to call Legal Insurrection: Obama is “Door  No. 2″ It seemed like a good idea at the time. Three years later the scorecard shows over 9,750,000 visits, 12,750,000 page views, 4,350 posts,…
