The new civility, that is. From Linda in Tennessee, sent with the subject line “the new civility …”: same as the old civility. I went to Southern Hills Hospital [Nashville] to visit a friend and happened upon this gem in the parking lot.

PPP called it pretty closely in Texas, and now is showing a toss-up among Eric Hovde, Tommy Thompson and Mark Neumann. Thompson, the former Governor, had been considered the clear favorite, but not anymore. The primary is August 14. Per reader Charles, Hovde is backed by Freedomworks, while Neumann is backed by…

No one could have seen this coming. No one. I don’t mean that Elizabeth Warren was stretching things a bit when she said that people on Wall Street have told her she’d save capitalism. No, the complete surprise is that Warren has fessed up and admits that the statement, which she insists was…

Romney’s foreign trip is the mainstream media’s coming out party in favor of Obama this electoral season, an obsessive nit-picking the likes of which Obama has not seen since ever. John Hinderaker has it right: The Most Striking Thing About Mitt Romney’s Overseas Trip… …has been the press coverage. It has been hypercritical, to put…

There never was going to be an actual shutdown, the issue was how much drama there would be on or about October 1. The drama held great risk — for both parties.  If played wrong by Republicans, it could have given Obama a last minute boost — and vice versa. Via NY Times: House…

CNN is hyping this story, but when you dig into it, there’s no firm evidence, only piecing together assumptions and conjecture. Obama’s family tree connection to first African American slave (emphasis mine): His family tree has been linked to Brad Pitt, Sarah Palin and both Presidents Bush but now President Barack Obama may be…

Today would be Milton Friedman’s 100th birthday. I’ve played this video before, but it’s particularly timely in light of the “you didn’t build that” narrative which has become the foundation of the Obama campaign taken from Elizabeth Warren who took it from George Lakoff.

The right to be offended is the foundation of our democracy. And the blogosphere. Thanks to reader Amy, who writes: I’m vacationing in Washington state, but here in the agricultural area of the Yakima valley, people are more conservative than the liberal coast–and it shows. Love your blog! Especially the bumper stickers. Keep up…

As reported by National Journal (via TWS)(emphasis mine): “Every now and again, I meet with someone who’s been very successful on Wall Street, who says, ‘I want to support your campaign because I believe you will save capitalism.
