The case for Rick Perry remains the same (Reader Poll)

Posted by  ▪  December 6, 2011
Prior to Rick Perry announcing he would run for President I brought on Katie Thompson to make the case for Perry.  Katie now is a leader of Students for Perry, and I predict, a future mover and shaker in Republican circles. Given all that has happened over the last several months, I reached…

Carter theory of relativity

Thanks to frequent photographer Jason, who writes: taken about a week ago in Raleigh, NC…(I was in the passenger seat, so no safety rules were violated)…note the small sticker on the bottom left also…

Romney’s “hide and hope they don’t seek me” media strategy

Posted by  ▪  December 5, 2011
LI reader and blogger Jeff Dobbs has a post up about Romney’s media strategy, which can be termed “hide and hope they don’t seek me” (that’s my term).  Jeff compares it to Obama’s strategy in 2008 of carefully controlling his exposure to the media. The strategy worked for Obama because he didn’t…

Defending Iran is where credibility goes to die

Posted by  ▪  December 5, 2011
When someone finds himself so in need of criticizing the U.S. that he ends up defending the brutal Iranian regime which for over 30 years has funded anti-U.S. and anti-Israel groups around the globe and sought to export Islamist fundamentalism, then all credibility has been lost. See, Glenn Greenwald, George Orwell on the…

The delusion continues

Posted by  ▪  December 5, 2011
I previously have highlighted the treatment of the “Arab Street” by NY Times columnist Roger Cohen in the midst of the Arab Spring protests, many of which revealed an open and ugly anti-Semitic side: In the Middle East you expect the worst. But having watched Egypt’s extraordinary civic achievement in building the coalition that…

To whom in the Republican Party is Newt beholden? (Tweet of Day added)

Posted by  ▪  December 5, 2011
I posted yesterday the spot on article by Byron York, The insider-outsider divide over Newt Gingrich, which delves into the great divide between Washington Republican political players (politicians and media) who have their noses out of joint over Newt because he was mean to them in the 1990s, and the general Republican…

Sickness in Wisconsin

Posted by  ▪  December 5, 2011
It’s hard to be shocked at anything anti-Scott Walker protesters do anymore given Wisconsin’s Long Strange Trip. So as much as I want to be shocked at anti-Walker protesters greeting the Governor with a Nazi salute at a Christmas Tree lighting ceremony at the State Capitol Rotunda (via Big Gov’t, h/t Weasel…

White House and Think Progress merger complete

Posted by  ▪  December 5, 2011
The Center for American Progress (CAP), the George Soros funded Democratic messaging machine, runs the aggressive Think Progress website. Think Progress is obsessed with attacking the Tea Party movement as racist, the Koch Brothers as evil manipulators, and Clarence Thomas as corrupt.  Think Progress blogger Matthew Yglesias helped ignite the false story that Sarah Palin’s electoral map was…

Battle of the Iowa ads

Posted by  ▪  December 5, 2011
Newt Gingrich just released his first Iowa television ad, a few days after Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul did so. (Some SuperPACs have been running ads longer, but these are from the campaigns.) Very different themes, with Newt keeping it in a “Morning in America” style (the background music…

Reports – Cain to endorse Newt on Monday (?)

Posted by  ▪  December 4, 2011
There are multiple reports that Herman Cain will endorse Newt tomorrow, based on reporting by Fox 5 in Atlanta.  This would not be a huge surprise, as Cain and Newt had a very good relationship, as witnessed by their joint appearance on the issue of entitlements reform. Expect stuff like this from…

Herman Cain did not just fall, he was pushed

Posted by  ▪  December 4, 2011
I’ve done this before, more than once.  But now that Herman Cain is out of the race, this may be the last time (probably not, but we can hope): As of today, 5 weeks after Politico broke the story, we still do not know what Herman Cain was accused of doing at the National…

Post-Cain Stuff

Posted by  ▪  December 4, 2011
In the wake of Herman Cain’s suspension of his campaign, lots of movement: Michele Bachmann claims to be picking up Cain supporters.  Just stop it.  Just stop it.  This is the same thing you pulled over the summer about Palin planning to endorse you. Rick Santorum seems like a nice guy, someone who…

Final Exams

Posted by  ▪  December 4, 2011
I just finished classes on Thursday and now I’m in finals territory. I have two papers and two cumulative exams between this week and next. I abhor cumulative exams. They are a total time drain and I have yet to feel productive while studying for one. It inevitably turns into a cramming…
