Why I Support Newt Gingrich

Posted by  ▪  November 16, 2011
I have been agnostic on the Republican primary so far, but the time for choosing has arrived. For the reasons set forth below, I believe that the primaries will come down to Mitt Romney versus Newt Gingrich.  As such, the choice is not between Newt Gingrich and some hypothetical more perfect conservative candidate, as Newt’s…

Newt Gingrich is not conservative enough for … er … Romney supporters?

Posted by  ▪  November 15, 2011
I was on the road and in meetings all day, with only passing opportunities to log on.  But I see a trend emerging. Bloggers and websites which support Romney, explicitly in some cases, impilicitly in others, are making lists of reasons why Newt Gingrich is not conservative enough, finding anywhere from 5-10 positions he has…

Now they want judicial restraint?

Posted by  ▪  November 15, 2011
From The NY Times Editors on why the Supreme Court should leave the Obamacare mandate alone: All of these issues are best resolved in the political system, not the courts. The Supreme Court ought to show judicial restraint, adhere to precedent and uphold the constitutionality of health care reform. What a strange, convenient…

Baker Boycott

Posted by  ▪  November 15, 2011
I came across a story about a Christian baker in Iowa who is being boycotted for refusing to work with a gay couple. I love boycotts with a passion, regardless of which side I’m on. Commerce is meant to be a voluntary association where goods are exchanged. Oftentimes prices, competitors,  or…

Your Daily Reminder

that free markets are integral to growth, prosperity and betterment in a modern society: In fifty years Hong Kong was transformed from one of the poorest places on earth to one of the richest. Despite having no natural resources, indeed not even enough drinking water to support its population; despite terrible over-crowding; despite the absence…

Liberate Wall Street! (And Main Street, Assorted Cities, etc.)

Posted by  ▪  November 15, 2011
If the authoritarian anarchists (which, weird as it may be, is what they are) insist on using the language of occupation, so be it. That means the rest of us can use the parallel language of liberation.  When the police clear out occupations, we should refer to the event as the liberation…

Reader David e-mails with the subject line “Is this a joke?” accompanied by this screenshot: I have no control over Google Ads. The good news is that Grayson wasted money advertising on a blog where everyone thinks he is a joke. While we’re on the subject, let’s remember one of his finest…

Join Scott Walker in fighting the union recall effort

Posted by  ▪  November 15, 2011
The recall effort against Scott Walker starts today, and Walker took a preemptive strike on Monday Night Football last night: This is the right message.  Unlike in Ohio where the collective bargaining reform bill lost in a referendum, in Wisconsin the benefits already are being felt. But make no mistake, this will be…

Check out time at Zuccotti Park

Posted by  ▪  November 15, 2011
When I heard that NY City police had cleared out Zuccotti Park overnight, I couldn’t wait to see the NY Post headline.  I was not disappointed: What do you think of my headline? Do I have what it takes to be a headline writer for the NY Post? Update: Apparently a judge has…

Trouble in Peoria

Posted by  ▪  November 15, 2011
Another insurrectionist bumper sticker photographed by someone from Peoria, AZ. We’ve seen this one before elsewhere, but it’s worth running again, particularly because of the photographer. Thanks to a reader who writes: My son spotted this one in a parking lot in Tucson, AZ a few weeks back.  I guess the fact that he gets the humor…

What’s fair is fair

Posted by  ▪  November 14, 2011
This interview failure is getting plenty of play, mostly because of the freeze at the start on Libya. I posted the Perry debate brain freeze, so what’s fair is fair: We’re heading for the candidate of David Frum, Jennifer Rubin and Politico as nominee unless we unite around the only viable alternative…

MSM becoming unhinged at thought of Newt

Posted by  ▪  November 14, 2011
Newt is as “dangerous as a wounded wolverine,” according to Dan Rather (via Charlie Spiering via Drudge): I think what we need is a wounded wolverine, not a puppy dog or kitten, for a nominee. Expect the full force of the MSM to try to stop him. I hope he…

Poll – Romney and Newt tied up for lead

Posted by  ▪  November 14, 2011
You can’t take a single poll on it’s own, but this CNN poll (data here) released at noon today does comport with the trend of Newt rising as Romney’s main challenger, and Cain feeling the effects of the negative publicity. Update: Ed Morrissey, linking also to a PPP poll showing Newt in the lead, notes: It…
