If there ever were a doubt, no matter how small, that the mainstream media is deeply in bed with the Obama campaign, the reaction to the killing of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and several other Americans should put such doubt to rest. Beginning early this morning, when news was just breaking,…

Best post-script ever

Stanley Fish in The New York Times prints Dinesh D’Souza’s responses to reader criticisms of the film 2016: Obama’s America.  (My review here.) It is an excellent read, as D’Souza eviscerates the criticisms in a very methodical and polite way. But what I loved the most was the post-script after Fish explained how…

Multiple news agencies are reporting that the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three others were killed in a rocket attack on their vehicle (although reports as to where he was at the time conflict).  The State Department has not confirmed as of this writing.  (Update – The White House has confirmed.)

So you better defeat him, or he’ll keep that promise from 2008 to bankrupt you. From Patrick: Saw this one at a Home Depot in Marion, (Southern) Illinois. No, we are nothing like Chicago. Enjoy!

The Chicago Teachers Union continued its second day of the strike by celebrating in a party-like atmosphere with kids, festive music, and a giant fuzzy elmo doll. They may be anticipating a long strike: according to CTU President Karen Lewis, the idea that a contract will be settled by the end…

Mass Senate race tightens as Obama bounce helps Warren

Posted by

A poll by Kimball Political Consulting, apparently a Republican leaning entity, found that the Senate race has tightened. Whereas two weeks ago Brown was up by 6 (consistent with PPP finding Brown up by 5 with likely voters), now Brown is up by less than 1%.  Obama’s 16% lead is up 5% versus…

Via Al Ahram English: Egyptian protesters on Tuesday took down the American flag from the walls of the US embassy in Cairo during a thousands-strong demonstration held to protest a short film produced by US based Coptic-Christians that critics say demeans Islam and the Prophet Mohammed. A number of protesters managed to climb…

Not really surprising, but there still are stupid supporters of Israel who believe that removing Jerusalem from the DNC platform was just a technical error.

Each day this week we will focus on one of the Upstate New York races included in Operation Counterweight.  As mentioned before, Upstate NY is critical to holding the House, as several seats were gained by Republicans in an otherwise blue state in 2010.  There also are good chances to flip…

Defeatism is so last weekend. Via WaPo: Last week’s Democratic National Convention helped President Obama improve his standing against Republican Mitt Romney, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, but did little to reduce voter concern about his handling of the economy. The survey shows that the race remains close among likely voters,…

“Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive.” The Dems have simplicity and a bumper sticker. The truth is that Bin Laden is dead, but GM is the walking dead.  That second part takes more than a few words to explain. The editors of National Review do a very good explanation, here is part…

I’ve been documenting the presence of the Chicago Teachers Union at non-education-related, radical protests over the past year. From Occupy to Anarchist, gay pride, and anti-NATO protests, the union deploys its members not on the basis of “for the children” but rather for political solidarity. On the first day of the strike…
