Posted by  ▪  September 26, 2011
The News Beast reports that Obama sold Israel bunker buster bombs that the Bush administration had previously blocked in 2005. The problem: In 2007, the Bush arranged for the bombs to be delivered in the 2009-2010 time period, which they were.  Newsweek of course dutifully spun the story to emphasize Bush’s original…

A rising tide week (Minneapolis)

Posted by  ▪  September 26, 2011
Thanks to all the readers who have been sending bumper sticker photos. One thing I’ve noticed is that a lot of drivers are willing to express themselves is quite vehement terms against Obama and Democrats.  Has the fear of getting keyed or worse worn off? Like this rear window sign spotted by reader…

The best thing about Republican primary disarray

Posted by  ▪  September 25, 2011
No one can legitimately complain that the deck was stacked, there was an anointed winner, the Tea Party movement was shut out, or the candidates have not been put through the ropes and the wringer. It may not end where we want it to end. But regardless, we will be stronger against Obama…

There’s a carbon offset sucker born every minute

Posted by  ▪  September 25, 2011
Thanks to reader Joe, who writes: Spotted this in Chicago on my way to the Daley Center. If you look closely, the sticker says “This car’s CO2 is offset by terrapass.” Naturally, the window sports a Northwestern decal as well. Unsurprisingly, Terrapass’s slogan is “Fight global warming, reduce  your carbon footprint.” Love your bumper sticker…

My post wasn’t directed at him, or…

Rick Perry is pushing back against criticism of his debate performances, particularly the Florida debate, by arguing that we should not elect the smoothest debater: “As conservatives we know that values and vision matter. It’s not who is the slickest candidate or the smoothest debater that we need to elect. We need…
