Rush Babes intended consequence

Posted by
5/9/2012 at 9:25pm
Rush Limbaugh launched a Facebook Page called Rush Babes for America, intended to show that more women support him than support the National Organization for Women. And sure enough, Rush Babes already has more followers than the NOW page, and NOW is griping. The impetus for Rush Babes was news that NOW had…

I just want to get this straight. Everyone knew Obama supported gay marriage, but didn’t say so when campaigning for president in 2008 and 2012 for political reasons. Everyone knew the “evolving” meme was BS, Obama was just waiting for the right moment, preferably after re-election. Everyone knew that Obama was under intense pressure…

Keep calling attention to this video, over and over again, as part of an ethics complaint against Scott Brown, via Politico: The Massachusetts Democratic Party has filed an ethics complaint against Scott Brown, alleging that Brown has used official resources for campaign purposes. The complaint focuses on footage of Brown’s half-court shot, which…

It’s not enough for Operation Counterweight to get a candidate through the primary.  We need to support the candidate immediately to keep the momentum going. Richard Mourdock is not running to the left (often mischaracterized as running to the center) one bit. Listen to this interview, which has the mainstream media up in arms because Mourdock…

Countdown to Obama’s gay marriage gutsy call (Update – Not so gutsy call, supports personally but leaves it to states)

Of course Obama supports gay marriage. Of course once he is free of the need to get reelected he will do everything within the power of the Executive Branch to effect a de facto federal policy change.   Of course he has not been truthful with his “evolving” narrative. Jake Tapper had it…

Yet another futile boycott of an entire state

Posted by

I don’t think we’ve had a boycott of an entire state in a while. California was boycotted over Prop. 8, and so was Utah because it has a lot of Mormons.  There also was a Mormon boycott, a boycott of a hotel whose owner supported Prop. 8, and a boycott of gays going…

Stolen Cherokee Valor

Posted by

Elizabeth Warren’s narrative of being a descendant of the Cherokee people emboldened Warren not only to consider herself Native American, but also to identify with the most victimized of the victimized. One doesn’t have to be a scholar of Native American history to know of the Trail of Tears.  Of all the Native American roots…

It was a blow out, more than anyone expected.  At latest count it looks like a 20 point win. Mourdocks victory speech was great.  I’ll post it when it is available.  (Now available at Right Scoop but no embed) For now, you’ll have to do with a photo: Elsewhere: Looks like Tom Barrett, Mayor of Milwaukee, will go…

From Peter Suderman at Reason, Obama Administration Security Official: We Don’t Need to Subpoena Reporters Anymore Because We Already Know Who They’re Talking To: Wasserman’s blistering indictment of the Obama administration’s hyper-aggressive pursuit of government whistleblowers, first delivered at April’s Logan Symposium on Investigative Journalism, is worth reading in full.

Cruel irony in Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee saga

Posted by
5/8/2012 at 12:35pm
Throughout her career and political campaign, Elizabeth Warren has found victims everywhere she looked, including when she looked in the mirror and saw an alleged descendant of one of the most historically victimized groups, Native Americans. In what may be the ultimate and cruelest irony, not only is it unlikely that Elizabeth Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was…

I have warned you about the total war, in which petitions and boycotts and other pressure tactics are used to silence conservative voices. There is no better example than a case reported in the NY Post via National Review (h/t Jonah Goldberg) about a blogger at The Chronicle of Higher Education who was…

Is there an endorsement in there someplace?

Rick Santorum has endorsed Mitt Romney via an overnight e-mail sent to supporters.  Here’s the link to the e-mail (h/t Politico). Is there an endorsement in there someplace? Yeah, I guess there is, but it’s buried in paragraph 13 and half-hearted: Above all else, we both agree that President Obama must be defeated. The task…
