NY-09 Results (AP Calls Race for Republican)(Victory Song and Tweet of Night added)

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
I know you wanted the Official Legal Insurrection Victory Dance, or at least a little celebratory dance.  But as mentioned earlier in the night, this district was heavily Jewish and Asian, so we will go to song: And Tweet of Night:   Turner speech — Mr. President, people are unhappy with economy and Israel policy. …

Weprin Camp Conducts Phony “Jews 4 Jesus 4 Turner” Voter Suppression Calls

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
Ace reports: You know what Jews really don’t like? Jews for Jesus. I have a lot of Jewish friends, and they almost all go banana-sandwich over this. They don’t like the invitation to conversion. They do react as if what is being discussed is nearly a hate-crime…. But a bunch of dirty-tricksters are playing…

Thatcher: En Vogue?

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
My friend sent me this link yesterday, and I could hardly believe the headline: Margaret Thatcher has become a hip youth icon. Harry Mount was at a party: held at Maggie’s, the Thatcher-themed nightclub on the Fulham Road, in west London. It will come as no surprise to Dan [Hannan]‘s readers that he is…

Wisconsin unions start feeding on each other

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
If you want a good measure of how deeply the collective bargaining bill in Wisconsin has disrupted public sector unions, there is no better example than the Wisconsins Education Association Council (WEAC). Last month WEAC announced that it was laying off 40% of its staff.  With little over which to collectively bargain,…

Newt rising?

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
Newt Gingrich has found his voice in the recent two debates.  He has been the most forceful and articulate voice lancing Obama and everything Obama stands for. Sure, Newt has the “baggage” but he is rising?
 

Let’s Get Real On Constitutional Amendments – And Stop Promising Them

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
Constitutional amendments are oddly popular these days in Republican circles: A Federal Marriage Amendment, a Balanced Budget Amendment, and a constitutional amendment banning abortion have all been part of either congressional proposals or presidential candidate promises. This is a mistake.  Controversial issues such gay marriage, abortion, or massive budget changes are by…

The American people can handle the truth about Obama’s phony jobs bill

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
There is a good reason Obama did not unveil his jobs bill prior to his jobs speech. It’s because the jobs bill is not a jobs bill, it is the tax increase Obama has been hoping for since he was a candidate, taking $400 billion from people making $200,000 or more (couples making…

My Generation Never Lived In A World Without Terrorism

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
It seems the rest of the Generation Y crew has weighed in on this, so I figured I’d put in my two cents. My experience is more like Michael’s than Kathleen’s.  Islamist terrorism was a real issue in the world grew up in.  It was something I was aware of and thought…

Received this note and photo from reader Tom in Colorado: I saw this morning’s post of the “Annoy a Liberal” bumper sticker spotted by Linda in Tennessee. She beat me to it! I saw this one (attached) on the way home just yesterday. It’s a variant — adds “Succeed” to the anti-liberal…

Republican / Tea Party Florida Debate (Added: End Game Probing Analysis

Posted by  ▪  September 12, 2011
Will not be “live blogging” it, but will have some observations. Feel free to comment. At the 8:30 break:  Great line by Newt, Obama scares seniors every day.  He made a strong substantive point, which is that why should be have to live in a system where a President can threaten to withhold…

I don’t know any other “real world”

Posted by  ▪  September 12, 2011
None of my friends or relatives were directly affected by the attacks on September 11, 2001. I was just starting the fourth grade in North Carolina and, while I knew my parents were clearly worried about something, I didn’t really understand what they were talking about with each other. The attacks…

Call him, incorrigible

Posted by  ▪  September 12, 2011
The Great Jobs Plan of 2011 is nothing more that The Great Tax Increase of 2011. He’s completely incorrigible, the Rain Man of class warfare and tax increases on job creators: White House Office of Management and Budget  Director Jack Lew outlined President Barack Obama’s plan to pay for his $447  billion jobs…

Jindal for Perry

Posted by  ▪  September 12, 2011
This strikes me as more significant than Pawlenty for Romney, because it represents the future of the Republican Party coming out for Perry, whereas Pawlenty in many ways represented the past.  Via CNN: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is backing Rick Perry for president, a major endorsement for the Texas governor as the…
