Michelle Malkin reports: Inspired by President Obama’s “Sputnik moment” speech back in January, the government-sponsored Smithsonian Institute has launched a new blog called“Department of Innovation”… Sharp-eyed reader Rob M. certainly found the “Department of Innovation”s logo entertaining.

Rick Perry’s unannouncement announcement

Posted by  ▪  August 11, 2011
Rick Perry hasn’t formally announced that he is running for President, but this interview with Mark Halperin of Time (the guy who famously dropped the “D” bomb on Obama) makes pretty clear Perry is running and that rumors of a rift between Bush and Perry are overstated if not outright untrue…

Dear WI Dems, please keep doing the same thing over and over, while expecting different results

Posted by  ▪  August 11, 2011
They just can’t help themselves.  Despte throwing everything the had at it, the Wisconsin Democrat/Union coalition lost the Prosser/Kloppenburg statewide election, and then failed to pick up the three seats needed to take control of the state Senate.  Having lost, Democrats declared victory. Democrats have convinced themselves that almost winning is the same as…

Fiscal Chart of the Day: Heritage Shows That Unprecedented Spending, Not Taxation, Is Our Real Problem

Posted by  ▪  August 11, 2011
Monday, President Obama issued yet another call for a “balanced” approach to our budget crisis, which is of course Obamaspeak for tax increases combined with small or phantom cuts in spending (with the possible exception of very real cuts in defense).  This wording is calculated to make him seem reasonable and…

Steal this bumper sticker

Not just this book. Sent by reader and photographer Bob who writes: In über-liberal Seattle, this is a brave act of insurrection. People here are real jerks about their liberalism.
 

Britain is our past and our future

Posted by  ▪  August 10, 2011
A look at our future on the current road to a permanent dependency state where there is little marginal incentive to work, and those who produce and provide jobs are demonized and ridiculed to the point of no return.

“I can see 2012 from my house”

Posted by  ▪  August 10, 2011
Great reaction to yesterday’s Wisconsin recall elections, from blogger Lexington Green at Chicago Boyz (via Instapundit).  Read the whole thing.  Leaves me with that “wish I’d said that” feeling: The people have spoken.  Again. Get used to it. Next: More rollback. Here, there and everywhere. Today Madison, tomorrow DC. Today Wisconsin, tomorrow America. I can see 2012 from…

As thugs have been burning, beating, and stealing their way through London, citizens of that disarmed society had little to defend themselves with as the police were completely overwhelmed. I have the utmost respect for police officers and the work they do, but they cannot be everywhere at once, especially in the…

Salon.com grasping at anti-Rick Perry straws

Posted by  ▪  August 10, 2011
To say that Justin Elliott of Salon.com has it out for Rick Perry is an understatement. Last month I focused on Elliott’s fruitless attempt to paint Perry as a neo-confederate by association.  Now Elliott is trying to paint Perry as, get this, both anti-Muslim and pro-Sharia, Rick Perry: The Pro-Sharia Candidate?. For the supposed…

What a night.  Thanks to all those who stopped by and commented. I thought this tweet perfectly captured the evening:
 

You mean like the ones

Posted by  ▪  August 10, 2011
… who said the Tea Party was a bunch of violent extremists, that Kloppenburg would beat Prosser, and the Dems would take back the Wisconsin Senate? Why so skeptical?  They have journalism degrees, and you don’t. Taken by the wife yesterday in Swansea, Massachusetts:

along with Patty “Why Won’t the Koch Brothers Donate to Democrats?” Murray, and Max “Obamacare creates near chaos” Baucus.  (via HotAir) What possibly could go wrong?  Or right (is Baucus a weak link?)? Analysis, please.
