A rising tide week (Minneapolis)

Posted by  ▪  September 26, 2011
Thanks to all the readers who have been sending bumper sticker photos. One thing I’ve noticed is that a lot of drivers are willing to express themselves is quite vehement terms against Obama and Democrats.  Has the fear of getting keyed or worse worn off? Like this rear window sign spotted by reader…

The best thing about Republican primary disarray

Posted by  ▪  September 25, 2011
No one can legitimately complain that the deck was stacked, there was an anointed winner, the Tea Party movement was shut out, or the candidates have not been put through the ropes and the wringer. It may not end where we want it to end. But regardless, we will be stronger against Obama…

The Palestinians mean exactly what they say

Posted by  ▪  September 25, 2011
when they are talking amongst themselves or to Arabic media, and what they are saying is that the state they seek from the U.N. is just the first step in the destruction of Israel, as stated by Fatah Central Committee Member Abbas Zaki (h/t Israel Matzav)(emphasis mine): The settlement should be based upon…

A race I’m going to watch

Posted by  ▪  September 25, 2011
The Michigan Senate Race has piqued my interest: Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is coming out in support of [Pete Hoekstra] the former House member tomorrow morning. Hoekstra could face a tough primary to take on Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D) from charter school founder Clark Durant, who is announcing his bid tomorrow [Friday]. But Republicans have been lining…

Posted by  ▪  September 25, 2011
I have posted numerous times before about the case of Lawrence Connell, the Widener Law School Professor who was placed on one-year unpaid leave and forced to undergo a psychiatric examination as a condition of return. The sanctions imposed by Dean Linda Ammons were so controversial that a high profile alumnus and major…

There’s a carbon offset sucker born every minute

Posted by  ▪  September 25, 2011
Thanks to reader Joe, who writes: Spotted this in Chicago on my way to the Daley Center. If you look closely, the sticker says “This car’s CO2 is offset by terrapass.” Naturally, the window sports a Northwestern decal as well. Unsurprisingly, Terrapass’s slogan is “Fight global warming, reduce  your carbon footprint.” Love your bumper sticker…

Someone tell The Daily Caller to stop digging

Posted by  ▪  September 24, 2011
“Passive-aggressive whining about people who dare to disagree with you” is Jim Treacher’s latest comment here, directed at me. Bizarre.  He’s been commenting furiously in the comment section here because I wrote a post critical of The Daily Caller’s handling of the Mike Tyson video about Sarah Palin. My post wasn’t directed at him, or…

Minimum required debating smoothness

Posted by  ▪  September 24, 2011
Rick Perry is pushing back against criticism of his debate performances, particularly the Florida debate, by arguing that we should not elect the smoothest debater: “As conservatives we know that values and vision matter. It’s not who is the slickest candidate or the smoothest debater that we need to elect. We need…

Thanks to reader Dallas, who writes: On vacation this week on Hilton Head Island, SC, I spotted an interesting bumper sticker collection (attached). Note the corner  missing from the Hillary for President sticker–possibly an attempt to remove  it(?). BTW: the photo was taken in a safe manner (while stopped at a traffic light). Keep up…

Netanyahu at the U.N. – Theater of the Absurd

Posted by  ▪  September 23, 2011
Benjamin Netanyahu’s full speech at the U.N. today was a masterpiece. It is available at the U.N. website.  Listen to the whole thing, it’s about 45 minutes. Here is a clip of most of it: Contrast it with the delusional and dishonest speech of Mahmoud Abbas at the U.N. today which included this line: I come…

Post-Debate Diagnosis

Posted by  ▪  September 23, 2011
So where does last night’s debate leave us? I’d say stage 4, although not all have made it that far: Denial √ In this stage, the world becomes meaningless and overwhelming. Life makes no sense. We are in a state of shock and denial. We go numb. Anger √ Be willing to feel your anger, even…
