Things You Don’t Expect to Hear

Posted by  ▪  September 23, 2011

The Rick Perry of lore needs to show up real soon

Posted by  ▪  September 23, 2011

Elizabeth Warren: Everything you have belongs to us

Posted by  ▪  September 22, 2011

This is almost enough to cause me to rescind my Bye Bye Brown pronouncement, because Elizabeth Warren ascending to the Senate to replace Scott Brown would make Ted Kennedy seem like the good ol’ days. The progressives are in a

“If this was 2013, Obama might be in a different groove”

Posted by  ▪  September 22, 2011

There is one worthwhile clause in an otherwise worthless article at The Atlantic by Steve Clemons, Obama Tells Palestinians to Stay in the Back of the Bus. Clemons lays out the fiction that the Palestinian strategic move to take land without peace is something Gandhi-like:

Conservatives coalescing around … Mitt?

Posted by  ▪  September 22, 2011

Via HotAir, Mitt Romney has scored two significant conservative endorsements recently, Jeff Flake and Darrel Issa.  While that may not constitute a coalescing around Romney, it does help insulate him from RINO charges.  Whatever he once was, is he now the

The Palestinian bubble bursts again

Posted by  ▪  September 21, 2011

Why the Palestinians thought that a diplomatic confrontation with the U.S. was the way to go is inexplicable.  Once again, they overplayed their hand. Did they really buy into Obama’s rhetoric from 2009 in Cairo, or earlier this year about
