There has been a lot of attention paid to Arby’s announcement that it no longer would advertise on the Limbaugh show. It was particularly interesting because Arby’s did not advertise to begin with, so it purely was a political statement, and was the subject of a Limbaugh tweet on Friday. That h…

Thanks to the 280+ Facebook sharers and 1800+ Twitters who shared Sanford (FL) Police deny…

The Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate in Egypt may not be the most anti-Israel of the candidates running: Last weekend’s announcement by Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood that it will field a presidential candidate, Khairat Shater, has drastically impacted the run-up to May’s elections. But his position on Israel is not significantly different than that…

On March 11, Nicky Larson wrote a column for The Independent (Ireland) hitting on virulent anti-Israel sentiment in Ireland: I used to hate Israel. I used to think the Left was always right. Not any more. Now I loathe Palestinian terrorists. Now I see why Israel has to be hard. Now I…

Posted by

The moment is 9 a.m. this morning when Drudge still has in the top left — the prime placement — a misleading link claiming armed neo-Nazis are patrolling Sanford, Florida, where Trayvon Martin was shot: I informed Drudge (via email, its tip box, and Twitter) about 14 hours ago that the link was…

Responsibility (h/t reader Danelle): There’s no such thing as a free lunch, at least not at the Rescue Mission of El Paso. The Rescue Mission, at 1949 W. Paisano, is now charging $1.50 for each lunch and dinner. Breakfast remains free. “Certainly the budget is tight, but that’s not the reason,” CEO Blake Barrow…

The latest wildfire spreading through the media and blogosphere is that armed neo-Nazis are patrolling Sanford, FL, in anticipation of trouble if George Zimmerman is not charged in the killing of Trayvon Martin.  In what has become a prime example of media malpractice, none of the major publications spreading the rumors…

Operation Counterweight is just taking shape for 2012.  Redistricting has slowed down my process of identifying House races. But in the Senate, I’m focused on Richard Mourdock’s primary challenge to Dick Lugar, and Barry Hinckley’s general election challenge to Sheldon Whitehouse. As you know, the theory behind Operation Counterweight is that we have to…

Not taking responsibility (h/t reader Tony): More about Arby’s here. If you are on Twitter, you can reach Arby’s at @arbys, or at its Facebook page, or at its Contact page. There’s probably not much we can do to prevent cowardly companies from giving into boycott threats, except to teach them responsibility.

What should have been a two-bit, one-day, not-really-scandal involving photos Dani Gilbert, the new DNC liason to the Jewish community, took a few years back is turning into something much more.  By all appearances, Debbie Wasserman Schultz gave a payoff to big Dem donors by giving their daughter a job at the DNC to…
