Hang in there Newt

Posted by  ▪  February 13, 2012
Yes, my thoughts exactly: National Review lost any credibility to chime in on the primaries when it ran its infamous Marvin the Martian cover and issue in late December. At least Andy McCarthy understood at the time: For the Editors to single out Gingrich for this kind of raking — particularly when his accomplishments…

Contraception Tweet of the Day

Posted by  ▪  February 13, 2012
Would it be premature to call this the early leader for Tweet of the Year? Maybe, because considering who won last year, we may need to redistribute the honor so that less-gifted Twitter users do not have their self-esteem damaged. From the 2012 CPAC Humor Blogger of the Year, @iowahawkblog: (h/t Maetenloch at AoSHQ)

Case u missed it this wkend

Posted by  ▪  February 13, 2012
I really need to stop using Twitter. Legal Insurrection receives CPAC award.  BTW, John Hawkins has photos and more from CPAC and the Red Carpet Bloggers Awards. in Chief.  Strong contender for bumper sticker of the year. Will we let them take this guy down?  Gov. Scott Walker needs our support. Minimalistic Momentumitis, we have…

Remember when no one understood why ABC asked about contraception at the NH Republican debate?

Posted by  ▪  February 13, 2012
Remember when George Stephanopoulos, at the New Hampshire Republican debate on January 7, brought up and harped on whether the candidates thought states could ban contraception? Everyone, at least on our side of the aisle, shook their heads in disbelief as to why Stephanopoulos was bringing up the issue.  There was no active…

Not that anyone’s counting

Posted by  ▪  February 13, 2012
Funny, I don’t see a “stop” button. A feature, not a bug. From reader Bill in Florida, who spotted this on a counter, and laments: I have been seeing lots of good bumper stickers, one on a prius, but alas, traffic only runs unimpeded when I want to take photos of other people…

What is an

Posted by  ▪  February 12, 2012
anti-Israeli liar and agitator capable of? Maybe almost setting off violence by deliberately spreading false rumors regarding a pending Jewish destruction of the Al-aqsa Mosque.  He’s not in Egypt, or Saudi Arabia, or Yemen.  He’s right here, and he runs the nasty Electronic Intifada blog, and was active at the recent BDS conference at…

Stop making excuses for Santorum’s endorsement of Arlen Specter

Posted by  ▪  February 12, 2012
I previously posted about Rick Santorum’s endorsement in 2004 of Arlen Specter against a challenge from Pat Toomey, in what was a precursor to the Tea Party v. Establishment fights to come. One of the unintended consequences of Specter’s reelection was that in 2009 Specter switched parties, and his vote was critical to…

The Asphyxiation of an Industry

Posted by  ▪  February 12, 2012
The Obama administration has been tightening the grip around the collective necks of the fossil fuel industry. The goal is of course to kill it and nowhere is this more self evident than with oil exploration. The most recent example is the studying to death of the Keystone pipeline. Allegedly, the Obama…

From the “can you imagine if a conservative publication did this?” files

Posted by  ▪  February 12, 2012
Can you imagine the uproar if a major conservative publication ran an image like this? The image is from New York Magazine, however, and it’s in support of gay marriage, so the response will be muted, Obama Gay Marriage Evolution Watch: Day 468. A writer at WaPo does take some offense: In the illustration’s determination to…

Live with these

Posted by  ▪  February 12, 2012
Working on posts about Santorum’s 2004 endorsement of and campaigning with Arlen Specter (and the false meme that we would not have Alito and Roberts if not for Santorum helping re-elect Specter), and another name to add to Operation Counterweight. But for now you’ll have to live with these: Santorum thinks Mitt rigged…

Dinner with Kyle Maynard

Posted by  ▪  February 12, 2012
With this being my first time ever attending CPAC, it can be easy to get caught up in the awe of it. The faces you see on the other end of the television every day turn into actual people and conference goers get a chance to engage in a real dialogue…

More “fatuous, preening, liberal self-righteousness”

Posted by  ▪  February 12, 2012
A close runner up to “the finest example of fatuous, preening, liberal self-righteousness” Thanks to reader Matt, who took this photo in the rain in Denver near the Cheesman Park neighborhood just east of Downtown, and writes: Doesn’t the government …already force me to? But alas, the fruits of my labor must be…

Minimalistic Momentumitis

Posted by  ▪  February 11, 2012
Mitt won the Maine caucuses, Mitt won the Maine caucuses! 39-36 over Ron Paul, with about 5000 people voting!  Not for Mitt, in total. He also won the CPAC straw poll.  Just like Michele Bachmann won the straw poll in Iowa.  And Herman Cain in Florida.  And just like Mitt did in…

Saturday Night Card Game (Who should have played the role?)

Posted by  ▪  February 11, 2012
I posted earlier in the week about the Super Bowl commercial run by Pete Hoekstra, who is running for Senate from Michigan against Debbie Stabenow. The commercial was part of a DebbieSpendItNow.com campaign highlighting the loss of jobs in Michigan to countries like China. The url now redirects to Hoekstra’s campaign website, but here is…
