Class warfare worked didn’t work so well for Democrats in Wisconsin in the Scott Walker recall.  But they’re stiking to what they know. The Democrats are engaging in another campaign, this time dubbing Romney’s bus tour the “Middle Class Under The Bus Tour.” (h/t JeffEmanuel)

Spotted by reader P.J., who’ll be moving to Albuquerque for love: I’ll be moving there in a couple of years to be with my fiancé. Sadly, leaving a very conservative part of Colorado, but my sweetie is very much worth it! The license plate prefix probably only is appreciated by those in the…

Rodney King died today. He was a tragic figure. I don’t blame him for any of the violence which took place after the policemen charged with assaulting him were found not guilty.  An interesting resource on the court case is here.  I discussed how the video evidence was demolished in court in this…

Keep Richard Mourdock strong

Now that Richard Mourdock has defeated Dick Lugar and is well into his general election campaign against Democrat Joe Donnelly, it is of paramount importance that we keep Mourdock’s campaign for Senate strong. Top-tier Republican figures are aware of this, as evidenced by Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s recent trip to Indiana to stump…

A real “hmmmm” regarding Elizabeth Warren academic vetting

Posted by
6/17/2012 at 4:17pm
I previously have posted about the excellent job Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart.com has done bringing to light details of a scathing critique of Elizabeth Warren’s scholarship by a now-deceased Rutgers Law School professor: The vetting of Elizabeth Warren’s academic background begins. Were charges of “scientific misconduct” against Elizabeth Warren ever fully vetted? The latest…

Progressive Harvard Law Prof: Obama “must be defeated”

Posted by

The most shocking thing to me about this video is not that Harvard Law Professor Robert Mangabeira Unger looks so old. When I was in law school he was a baby-faced rising star on the faculty (his photo from that time period still is on his faculty bio).  It always amazes me…

“Everybody matters to this movement online and in person”

There were may good speeches at the Right Online conference, including Sarah Palin and Michelle Malkin. I particularly liked Hugh Hewitt’s speech, and his emphasis on how we each play an important role in the movement: “Every day is a new day online and every barrier to entry is down… I want to…

There is very little chance I’ll end up reading David Maraniss’ biography of Obama, although by all accounts it is a very detailed work which punctures much of Obama’s self-portryal (you remember the “composite” girlfriend revealed in a pre-release excerpt). Ben Smith has read the book, and finds: David Maraniss’s new biography of…

When Neil Munro shouted out a question to Obama yesterday as Obama was reading a statement in the Rose Garden about his unilateral thumbing of Congress and the American people in the eye, a firestorm of condemnation erupted among media-types on both the left and right. Forget for the moment that this is…

Saturday Night Card Game (Is there any scenario under which the Republican would not be racist?)

Posted by

I pointed out in a previous Card Game that the race card was being used to defend Elizabeth Warren, Playing the race card in defense of Elizabeth Warren is a vice.  That post revolved around Jehmu Green calling Tucker Carlson a “bow-tying white boy” for questioning Warren’s story. That was on May…

I think this is one of those goose/gander things. Via Roll Call: With less than four and a half months until Election Day, Senate Republicans are shutting off the bipartisan spigot when it comes to confirming President Barack Obama’s nominees to the nation’s top courts and will present a unified front against his…

What’s up with Maine Senate contest?

Posted by

I’m still having a lot of trouble figuring out the Maine Senate race, and whether there’s anything we can do to salvage the seat in a three-way race with the former Governor running as an independent apparently in the lead. Via Pine Tree Politics: The message from the Republican Party and Democratic Party…

From a reader: Took this photo on my way to work this morning — in Saratoga, California, a suburb of Silicon Valley, no less! It probably doesn’t mean California is in play, but I think it’s an indicator of Obama’s diminishing popularity here. I thought LI readers might like it, though I…
