“We, like the Santorums, took a photograph of the baby”

Posted by  ▪  January 7, 2012
There must be tens of thousands of stories like this one from Charles Lane of The Washington Post about his child who died in utero just hours before a scheduled c-section: We, like the Santorums, took a photograph of the baby — lying, as if asleep, in my wife’s arms. We have a…

First time shame on you, second time shame on you

Posted by  ▪  January 7, 2012
Kind of makes me want to smack the vehicle owner upside the head and scream, “snap out of it.” From Linda in Tennessee, taken at the Whole Foods parking lot in Nashville:

Rick Santorum shortens libertarians

Posted by  ▪  January 6, 2012
This video (via Leslie of Temple of Mut) of Rick Santorum has made the rounds as evidence that Santorum is hostile to the Tea Party movement. The key sentence, in which he expresses and intention to “vocally, publicly oppose” the Tea Party, is ambiguous.  Was he saying he would oppose the Tea Parties, or…

Bain drip drip drip

Posted by  ▪  January 6, 2012
It’s so frustrating, the failure of conservative media and Republican campaigns to vet Mitt Romney’s Bain days. Instead of hiring cartoonists to turn Newt into Marvin the Martian, National Review should have been digging deep into the public filings, court filings, and the financial history of the companies Bain acquired and sold. …

Sawyer and Stephanopoulos to debate Republican candidates Saturday night

Posted by  ▪  January 6, 2012
Of course I’ll be covering it, probably one of my “updates at the breaks” type of coverage, not a Live Event.  It starts at 9 p.m. Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos “moderated” the Drake Debate in December.   My prior posts: Drake Debate – Video highlights, Drake Debate Post-Op & Tweets of Night and Duel…

They know who the real threat is

Posted by  ▪  January 6, 2012
Via The Hill: Restore Our Future, a super PAC backing Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, will run full-page ads attacking Newt Gingrich in the Manchester Union Leader and The State in Columbia, South Carolina, the most prominent newspapers in the next two states to vote…. The decision to attack Gingrich is a curious one…

The election is not just about jobs, it’s about the vision thing

Posted by  ▪  January 6, 2012
There is a new jobs report out, with the usual caveats that the work force is shrinking, but the nominal unemployment rate is down to 8.5%.  That’s the number which counts politically. The rate would be 10.9% if the same number of people were in the workforce as when Obama took office The…

“less intelligent, but angrier liberals”

Posted by  ▪  January 6, 2012
I’m still trying to wrap my mind around that phrase used in the email from reader NCMont to explain his move from D.C. to Austin.  I guess it’s like when I make the trip from Rhode Island to Ithaca when school is in session.  Or is it the other way around? Basically, NCMont and I are …. Professor,…

WI Judge: Bugs Bunny can’t sign petitions to recall Scott Walker

Posted by  ▪  January 5, 2012
You would think that Wisconsin state officials charged with ensuring the intergrity of elections, including the recall against Gov. Scott Walker, would want to check for duplicate, fictitious and fraudulent signatures on recall petitions. But no.  As I reported in November, the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board decided that it would not check signatures. …

Grow some

Posted by  ▪  January 5, 2012
Things that deserve separate posts, but won’t get it, for now: He’s still trying to out liberal a real liberal, and it will not work:  Scott Brown Says He Supports Obama’s Illegal “Recess” Appointment of Richard Cordray… and  Scott Brown Accuses Gingrich Of ‘Pandering To The Right-Wing Extreme’.  He has forgotten who elected him. Teenager…

Now Eugene Robinson mocks Santorum’s mourning

Posted by  ▪  January 5, 2012
I posted the other day about Alan Colmes mocking — and then apologizing for mocking — the manner in which Rick Santorum and his family mourned their child who died shortly after birth. Now Eugene Robinson of The Washington Post and MSNBC has done the same (via Commentary, h/t @CharlieSykes): First it was Alan…

Coulter: Santorum “more of a Catholic than a conservative”

Posted by  ▪  January 5, 2012
Having called the Tea Party birthers and Newt Ahmadinejad, Ann Coulter has identified another way of demonizing and belittling someone who is not Mitt Romney: As a two-time senator from a light-blue state, Rick Santorum is not as obviously unelectable as the rest. But don’t leap too fast, Republicans. Remember how Rick Perry broke…
