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…

Or a Lance Armstrong Livestrong Team Radio Shack jersey. I guess you didn’t get that directive from the Central Committee, Comrade. From reader 9th District Neighbor: Mild weather always brings out the men in tights who bicycle in large groups, usually in the middle of the road. This fellow was spotted in north suburban…

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…

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
6/16/2012 at 10:10am
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…

Not the destruction in September 2007 of the nuke facility likely being built with the help of the Norks. Via Jerusalem Post, a story I had not heard before, Syria’s chemical weapons program has been focus of Israeli intelligence operations since the mid-1970s. It was July 2007 and in Aleppo, Syria, the muezzins…

Who asked a question. And the MSM is going wild on Twitter. Here’s the offense: The “offender” was Neil Munro from The Daily Caller.

Criminal charges dropped against Aaron Walker, but gag order remains

Posted by
6/15/2012 at 1:50pm
Last night Patterico reminded us Aaron Walker Still Silent: Outlaw judge Cornelius Vaughey’s ruling remains in effect. Aaron cannot truthfully blog about public figure Brett Kimberlin without violating a judge’s blatantly unconstitutional prior restraint of his speech. Just thought I’d mention that. Since it’s still true. While Walker remains under a gag order, at…

Elizabeth Warren’s Google problem

Posted by

Rick Santorum had a Google problem. And so does Elizabeth Warren, although of a different nature. Elizabeth Warren wants her message to be about evil factory owners who live off of others, and the middle class which is being”hammered” (her new favorite word). Whatever her messaging intends to be, Warren’s Cherokee problem dominates the…

So much for the rule of law.  This guy wants reelection, so to hell with the Congress. Via Associated Press: The Obama administration will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives. The election-year initiative addresses a…

Scott Brown hasn’t said much himself about Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee fraud. But now he’s going there, and good for him. With each passing day that Warren clings to her claim to be Native American, Cherokee, a minority and a “woman of color,” she reveals a deep and disturbing character flaw. Warren thinks she can…
