They’re made for each other

Sarah Palin may be the one liberals have been waiting for

Posted by  ▪  September 9, 2011

I made the point the other day that Sarah Palin’s speech in Indianola, Iowa, went to the core of the Tea Party movement: I don’t know what the future holds for Palin, whether she will be a candidate or just a

Palin knew Revere better than Obama knew Lincoln

Posted by  ▪  September 9, 2011

Obama flubbed his history.  Via Ed Morrissey, Obama inaccurately called Abraham Lincoln the founder of the Republican Party: Not true! Doesn’t Obama know history? So now the media will erupt for weeks on end about what an “idiot” and “fool” and “know-nothing”

Dreams from their 2008 Obama

Posted by  ▪  September 9, 2011

After last night’s pre-game speech, this bumper sticker is particularly meaningful. Thanks to reader Will who spotted this in Breckenridge, CO, and writes: Not even sure what this one is supposed to mean … It means that there are people out

Obama “American Jobs Act” Speech In One Sentence

Posted by  ▪  September 8, 2011

Advanced excerpts of the speech here. Reduced to one sentence: Been there, done that. Post speech update (full text here): What a horrendous event.  It truly was, a 40 minute attack on Republicans (sometimes explicitly, sometimes implicitly) with a series of straw

PM Erdogan: Turkish warships to help break Gaza blockade

Posted by  ▪  September 8, 2011

I wasn’t sure Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan really would follow through on threats of a military confrontation with Israel over the Gaza blockade, but the recent U.N. panel decision upholding the legality of the blockade over Turkish protests

4th Circuit tosses Virginia Obamacare suit on “standing” grounds

Posted by  ▪  September 8, 2011

The 4th Circuit has dismissed Virginia’s Obamacare mandate suit, which Virginia won in the District Court, on the ground that the Attorney General did not have “standing” to sue (meaning that he was not a person legally entitled to sue).

Post-Debate Tweet of the Day

Posted by  ▪  September 8, 2011

I thought Romney did well last night, as did Perry (although expectations were higher for Perry).  Newt was the star. But, Romney’s post-debate performance by his messaging team was horrid, playing the “kill social security card” on Perry.  We can
