Saturday Night Card Game (new verb, “to Chris Matthews”)

Maybe I should change the name of this series to the Saturday Night Chris Matthews Card Game, since Matthews is such a frequent topic lately. Matthews doesn’t, apparently, understand that he was being mocked when Bill Maher asked whether Matthews was overly aggressive in charging racism (via RCP): Bill Maher, host: “Chris Matthews. Are you taking…

I haven’t written much lately about the insurance sales organization doing business as a senior citizens advocacy group using the name AARP. You have AARP, among other corporate sell-outs, to thank for Obamacare, as I posted in 2009-2010: When Will AARP, Consumers Union and AMA Be Held To Account for Obamacare? AARP Rides To Obamacare’s Rescue,…

From The Washington Examiner, Al Qaeda is alive and GM is half-dead: “Bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive.” That was Vice President Biden’s answer to the question of why President Obama should be given a second term. To this bumper-sticker slogan, the demonstrators who sacked the U.S. embassy last week…

In case you missed them, there were a lot of posts about the (lack of intellectual) diversity on college campuses: Is the “Ron Paul Revolution” Too Dangerous for Auburn? UC Berkeley liberal student groups afraid to meet with conservatives/libertarians Diversity at Vassar Doesn’t Include Conservatives Conservative Students Flock To Defend Chick-fil-A Women No Longer Need Special…

It has been an exhausting month so far, but I’m actually feeling pretty good about the election. I’m not predicting or not predicting victory, but the media is at an all time low in levels of trust, which leads me to think maybe people understand the hyperventilation for Obama. That’s not to…

All the details and links at TaxProf Blog. Short version.  He made a lot, and gave a lot to charity. The interesting part: The campaign also released a statement from PriceWaterhouseCoopers on the Romneys’ tax filings over 20 years, from 1990 – 2009: In each year during the entire 20-year period, the Romneys owed both state…

Cherokee genealogist to Elizabeth Warren: “Your Native American issue has not been put to rest”

Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes, whose group of researchers has done more than anyone to document Elizabeth Warren’s false claims to be Cherokee, was incensed at Warren’s continued insistence that she is Native American: Let  me make one thing clear. Your Native American issue has not been put to rest. You say your “ancestry”…

Chick-fil-A fires back at media’s mischaracterization of their giving

Posted by

This Wednesday, I reported that the media were falsely reporting that Chick-fil-A had decided to cease donations to “anti-gay” groups. Scores of so-called reputable news outlets like the Los Angeles Times and ABC News ran headlines declaring that Chick-fil-A had changed its policy toward giving to anti-gay groups. Yesterday, Chick-fil-A set the…

There is no question that Scott Brown won the debate last night. It wasn’t a knock out.  As Howie Carr correctly notes, a man can’t get away with hitting a woman too hard in a debate: When he was pummeling her on the asbestos litigation, and her $225,000 payday, and on the $700,000…

I will add to this, and embed videos when available, but here’s my quick take.  (Full video here) Very strong opening for Brown on fake Cherokee issue.  He didn’t handle it the way I would have, but he picked an issue — the release of her employment records — and stuck to…

There’s an extremely competitive race going on in the IL-8 congressional district; it’s just the Democrats don’t want anyone to find out. This is the race between Tea Party stalwart Congressman Joe Walsh and the DNC darling Tammy Duckworth. Walsh made headlines in 2010 for his well-fought win where he defeated three-term incumbent…

for splitting the vote between Eric Hovde and Mark Neumann, allowing Thompson to win the primary with under 40% of the vote. I have a bad feeling about this, via Althouse: Thompson was up 9 points in the polls a month ago, and now he’s down 9 points. It’s useless to fret about whether the Marquette…
