The world has gone mad

Posted by  ▪  March 2, 2012
U.S. soldiers who accidentally burned Korans to be charged, ““For the soldiers, it will be serious — they could lose rank.” Feels like a good night for a White House document dump.  Yup, something in the air. Ted Kennedy too conservative for today’s Dem party?  Not sure, he did rent the whole thing…

How long until Obama says Georgetown is acting “stupidly”?

Posted by  ▪  March 2, 2012
JWF has some background on the Georgetown Law student who is challenging Georgetown’s contraception policy.  She went to the law school knowing the university’s policy, and per JWF, intending to challenge it. Unfortunately, Rush walked into this one without seeing the set up, and now the student gets the obligatory call from…

So Close to Right

Posted by  ▪  March 2, 2012
An eighth grader in upstate New York has ruffled some feathers with an essay that casts the public school system as modern slavery. I wish I hadn’t clicked on the hyperlink, because – at face value - she seemed so right. Public schools discriminate based on geography under threat of imprisonment and their machine…

If we’re so sure to lose playing it safe, why not shoot for the moon?

George Will and Erick Erickson predict near certain loss in the presidential election. George Will: “[T]here would come a point when… conservatives turn their energies to a goal  much more attainable than… electing Romney or Santorum president. It is the goal  of retaining control of the House and winning control of the Senate.. …

David Frum’s ghoulish attack on Breitbart

Posted by  ▪  March 2, 2012
Upon hearing of the death of Andrew Breitbart, Breitbart’s Twitter nemesis Eric Boehlert of Media Matters sent a respectful and classy tweet: Even Media Matters itself, with whom Breitbart sparred almost daily, issued a respectful statement: Media Matters has a long history with Andrew Breitbart. We’ve disagreed more than we’ve found common ground, but…

Man against the mob

Posted by  ▪  March 1, 2012
This is a classic. The story and a longer video are here. On Saturday, September 18th, Glenn Beck and Andrew Breitbart headlined an event entitled “Right Nation 2010,” held just outside of Chicago, Illinois. As you will see in our video report from the scene, when Andrew Breitbart arrived at the Sears Centre, he…

A personal note on the death of Andrew Breitbart

Posted by  ▪  March 1, 2012
I only spoke once with Andrew Breitbart. He reached out to me, and we spoke by phone.  The topic is not important, but I was shocked that he even knew who I was; but as I’ve come to learn, Andrew seemed to know who everyone was in the conservative blogosphere.  He…

Look Drudge’s gift horse in the mouth

Posted by  ▪  March 1, 2012
When it mattered in the period between the South Carolina and Florida primaries, Drudge was all anti-Newt all the time, promoting falsehoods about Newt’s history with Ronald Reagan and assorted other Romney campaign themes. Now Drudge is being nice to Newt, with this banner linking to a post at HotAir about Newt…

There’s no such thing as a free health care

Posted by  ▪  March 1, 2012
If free health care costs so much, maybe it’s not free.  Just don’t tell it to the yutes. I’m guessing this is from a doc’s car.  From Linda, who e-mailed this photo with the subject line “nothing extra special …” About this sticker – except it’s continuing relevance.. Parking lot of Heritage Medical office building,…

Who you calling parody?

Posted by  ▪  February 29, 2012
This video explaining how free contraception is a law student human right apparently was not parody.  This video of law students warning 16-year-olds not to go to law school is a parody, a take off on this 16-year-old me video.  (h/t @GabrielMalor) [Update:  Strange, the video now redirects to an “alternate” version, not the original…

NBC: The new Mayor of Ithaca sure reminds us of Obama

Posted by  ▪  February 29, 2012
I guess the comparison to Obama was inevitable, and NBC goes full “deja vu” on the new Mayor of Ithaca, Svante Myrick. I wouldn’t pigeonhole him yet; he ran an insurgent campaign against the entrenched Ithaca Democratic political establishment and also defeated the designated Progressive candidate.  He won with a lot of help from students. Myrick…

Conspiracy is in the eye of the beholder

Posted by  ▪  February 29, 2012
“Some people are much more into conspiracies” … And in an attempt to prove there is no conspiracy, Paul has just released an ad attacking everyone, his first attack on Romney since Iowa (aka The Stone Ages).
