From reader equitus: I saw this one in Napa County, CA on Thursday, May 31. Note the large faded sticker in the middle: “I [heart] Big Brother” It’s a little shocking anyone would admit this kind of sentiment, even in these parts. Keep up the great work!

The next Insurrection still is on target for an August roll-out.  Most likely mid-month. The current site really is just a holding place, and all the sidebar and navigation bar links are the same as Legal Insurrection.  That will change when the site goes live. Your Legal Insurrection registration for commenting will be good at…

Is anyone getting “spawned” when visiting LI? A reader has complained that links produce multiple “spawned” pages. I’ve never had the problem, and our site is clean of viruses as far as we can determine. Is anyone else having this problem?

Mitt Romney in Israel

Posted by

Let me be as clear as I can be.  Anyone who supports Israel must vote for Romney.  Obama, in complete control of foreign and military policy, will be unrestrained by electoral considerations in a second term, and will impose his vision of a Middle East settlement on the Israelis.  There won’t be…

I can’t say I’m surprised it came to threats from the Mayors of Boston and Chicago, and a Chicago Alderman, to deny Chick-fil-A a business permit because the owners support the traditional definition of marriage as one man – one woman.  Or that two other Mayors, in San Francisco and D.C., have jumped on…

A recent poll indicates she is in trouble. Via The St. Louis Post-Dispatch: No matter who wins the Missouri Republican nomination to the U.S. Senate on Aug. 7, Democrat Claire McCaskill is running from behind. McCaskill, the first-term incumbent Democratic senator, trails all three of her likely Republican challengers, according to a new Post-Dispatch/News…

The Saturday Night Card Game started on August 8, 2009, when I noticed a post by Oliver Willis of Media Matters blogging at his own blog, as follows: Steve Benen tries to understand just why wingnuts are so angry about health care reform. He doesn’t make bad points, but its so much…

My post earlier today, Sarah Palin visits Chick-fil-A, civility and new tone ensue on Twitter, has generated a fair bit of attention.

Worthy of a boycott?

Posted by

Well, if we’re using the same “difference of opinion” standard that was used to call for the boycott of Chick-Fil-A, then it sure would seem it. If the 30 states that have enacted legislation or constitutional amendments defining marriage as between a man and woman decided to engage in the same…
