But what did you evolve into?

Posted by  ▪  February 10, 2012
If being an Obamabot is the end result of evolution, we would have been better off staying knuckle-dragging troglodytes. From reader, student and author @BlakeSeitz, taken in a parking garage at the University of Georgia:

Wisconsin election officials suddenly interested in recall petition fraud — from last spring on petitions to recall Dem Senator

Posted by  ▪  February 9, 2012
The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board steadfastly refused to disqualify duplicate signatures and clearly fictitious signatures on petitions to recall Scott Walker, and to this day has rejected the efforts of private citizens to bring recall petition fraud to its attention. But with all the bad publicity regarding fraud in the recall Walker effort, the GAB…

Pander the Panda Bear?

Posted by  ▪  February 9, 2012
Seems like most of the conservative blogosphere is at CPAC.  I haven’t ever done CPAC.  I’m a loner by nature, the type of rugged individualist that made this country great.  But I digress. This video by Robert Stacy McCain made me feel car sick from the shaking, so I don’t think I’ll…

“Obama-Firsters”

Posted by  ▪  February 9, 2012
Well, it’s not the title of Glenn Greenwald’s post, Repulsive progressive hypocrisy (h/t @Steven_Swenson), but it could be. Here goes: During the Bush years, Guantanamo was the core symbol of right-wing radicalism and what was back then referred to as the “assault on American values and the shredding of our Constitution”: so much so…

Posted by  ▪  February 9, 2012

Insulting our intelligence appears to be Romney’s campaign strategy

Posted by  ▪  February 9, 2012
As was documented by Jeffrey Lord at The American Spectator, the floor speech Newt gave about Reagan’s “failing” Soviet policy in 1986 was filled with praise for Reagan and the criticisms of the policy raised in the speech were common among conservatives.  The suggestion that Newt was against Reagan or insulting Re…

Can you say “brokered convention”? (Reader poll added)

Posted by  ▪  February 9, 2012
From Sean Trende at Real Clear Politics: But for the first time, the two way faceoff doesn’t seem inevitable, and a viable path to a brokered convention is beginning to emerge… To see it, let’s examine a map of U.S. counties and how they have voted so far. Blue counties backed Romney, red…

Oh, lag

Posted by  ▪  February 9, 2012
When I first read it, I thought it said “nag.” Apologies to Herb, but in being forced to parent against the extracurricular political agendas which seep into the curricula of the liberal Santa Monica-Malibu school system, I often feel like “The Lonely Bulls**t Fighter.” I guess the Komen Foundation retreating with its tail…

The afternoon after the morning after

Posted by  ▪  February 8, 2012
Call me a skeptic (or a shill), but I think I am being more level-headed than those who think last night put Santorum on the fast track. He’s not a limited government guy.  That’s one of the reasons. Advice Santorum should not take.  No matter how many times she says it. Why haven’t the…

Cornell’s Tech Campus Irks Pro-Palestine Group

Posted by  ▪  February 8, 2012
Last month, Cornell celebrated a successful bid for a NYC-based tech campus. The win is a big boost for Cornell’s standing and opportunities for undergraduates. Since the announcement, though, I’ve been waiting for thing to “get political.” Frankly, I’m surprised it took so long…. As part of their successful bid, Cornell will…

Romney tells us who he fears, launches attack ad against Newt in Ohio

Posted by  ▪  February 8, 2012
Romney does not appear to be falling for the second political death (or is it third?) of Newt, because his SuperPAC still is going negative against Newt. Perhaps his team knows, based on internal polling, that for all of Santorum’s caucus wins and next best thing hoopla, Newt remains the greatest threat in big ticket…

Widener Law settles with Prof. Lawrence Connell

Posted by  ▪  February 8, 2012
I have posted numerous times before about the case of Lawrence Connell, the Widener Law School Professor who was placed on one-year unpaid leave and forced to undergo a psychiatric examination as a condition of return. The sanctions imposed by Dean Linda Ammons were so controversial that a high profile alumnus and…
