This is the second debate, being held at U. Mass. Lowell, starting at 7 p.m. Eastern.  There should be live feeds on MassLive.com, uml.edu, bostonherald.com, and CBS 3 in Springfield . It may also be on CSPAN. David Gregory is the moderator – ugh.  Let me guess how that will go.  It should be…

Is tonight the night Elizabeth Warren’s law license problem goes mainstream? (Update – No)

Posted by
10/1/2012 at 5:20pm
Despite a Drudge link, huge linkage everywhere in the conservative blogosphere, and defensiveness in the left-legal blogosphere, Elizabeth Warren’s law license problem has not broken into the mainstream media. Other than some passing references, the Boston press has ignored it, even as debates raged on the internet and Boston talk radio. There seems…

The government has become quite efficient under Obama at fast walking guns to Mexico and free cell phones to Cleveland, but has ignored its obligation to secure and promote absentee ballot requests from the military. Via Virginia Watchdog: A 92 percent drop in absentee-ballot requests by military personnel in Virginia is raising concerns…

Is this a parody video or a glimpse of America circa 2015 if Obama is reelected? Either way, its pretty funny (and scary). Reminder: The above video was based on true events…

Don’t expect it, even though there is good polling news today for Romney-Ryan, as detailed at Hot Air: Welcome to October! Today must be Poll Day, as media groups try to determine the lay of the land ahead of the first debate on Wednesday.  The new Washington Post/ABC News poll put the…

Amy Bishop, who shot up her colleagues at the University of Alabama, was one in a long line of violent criminals the MSM and left-blogpshere immediately tagged as a Tea Partier without any basis.

It’s very difficult in Ithaca or Rhode Island to get a sense of how the presidential contest is playing out. Because both New York and Rhode Island are sure winners for Obama, there is virtually no advertising on television in these markets for the presidential race.  In Ithaca, which draws on the…

The class clown of the academic internet is beclowning again; must be he’s upset with my investigation into Elizabeth Warren so he attacks the only way he knows how.  Rather than address the merits, he picks a three and one-half year old post of mine and calls me names.  Class act. So I thought…

I really try not to read the comments in other blogs about me.  In the early days I did care, but I learned that it’s generally not healthy. But when I saw that Volokh Conspiracy had a short post by Jonathan Adler about Elizabeth Warren — VC’s first foray into the issue,…

As long time readers know, I have been searching for a unified theory of race card players. It seems too simplistic to view people like Chris Matthews as liars.  It’s not that they lie about facts, it’s that facts are irrelevant.  Everything becomes racist or at least a racist dog whistle, based solely…

Just after the Benghazi attack on our consulate and the murder of four Americans, including our ambassador to Libya, I explained in a post titled Lack of Intelligence Community why I blamed our nation’s intelligence apparatus and not the White House for this colossal failure. Now comes this confirmation: Extremists from groups linked…
