Paul Ryan falsely was accused today by left-wing bloggers, most notably Matthew Yglesias (formerly of Think Progress now of Slate), of insider trading based on confidential information provided by the Treasury Secretary to Congress on September 18, 2008. That day, Ryan traded Citigroup stock. The accusation fell apart when someone noticed that the…

to the rest of the country, from the only state which still celebrates it. We’ve change the name to disguise the purpose of the day. Because disclosing the Victory we are commemorating would be so incorrect. It’s like everyone gets a trophy day. Anyway, for those of you who missed it on July…

There seems to be an unusual lack of clarity here, as Ed Morrissey notes in a post earlier this afternoon. Various news reports indicate Palin will not be giving a speech, but it’s unclear if she was not invited to speak, given such a poor time slot that she didn’t want it,…

Candy “Ryan Ticket Death Wish” Crowley to moderate presidential debate

What the hell was the Presidential Commission on Debates thinking? I realize it is hard to find any MSM person who is neutral much less perceived as neutral, but really … this person will moderate one of three presidential debates? She claimed to be reciting what unnamed Republicans were saying privately, but that’s…

I’ve been waiting for Romney’s SuperPAC to go after Obama the way it went after Newt. We’re not there yet, but getting closer.

There is no more misleading imagery than the ad run by Democrats in which a Paul Ryan-looking figure throws Granny off a cliff due to Medicare cuts: The ad has it exactly opposite to reality.  Republican proposals would keep Medicare the same for people already in the system or 10 years away from…

Anne is at the Romney-Ryan rally in Waukesha.  She says the crowd is so large they had to move the rally from indoors to outdoors to accommodate all the people. We’re still trying to confirm the crowd size estimate.  (Campaign says 10,000, which is similar to what Anne was told.) Apparently three protesters…

The Choice Election. That seems to be the consensus emerging about how the Ryan pick changes the race. Democrats claim to be ecstatic about it — it seems to me they are trying much too hard to convince themselves and demoralize us.  There are few if any dissenting voices on that side of…

Elizabeth Warren’s daughter Amelia Warren Tyagi runs ACORN-successor Demos, which has promoted her mother’s political ambitions for years. No surprise when Demos filed suit in May against Massachusetts, and then the Democrats who run the state promptly capitulated and agreed to unprecedented efforts to register welfare voters far and beyond what the…

More motivated than ever. It might have been that way regardless of the Veep pick, but the immediate attempt by the mainstream media and liberal magazines and newspapers to Palinize Paul Ryan brought back bitter memories of the type which motivated me for the 2010 elections. It’s okay to want to…

Well, that didn’t take long. When it became clear that Paul Ryan would be the Veep nominee this morning, the New York State Immigrant Action Center posted what might be the first race card play against Ryan as Veep nominee, accusing him of using the allegedly racist term “anchor babies”: Paul Ryan has…
