It’s the vacation, stupid

Posted by  ▪  August 17, 2011
Obama has a jobs plan.  He will tell us when he is ready.  Until then, just chill. It’s early in the day, but this Tweet by Mark Knoller of CBS News already is the winner of the Obama Jobs Plan Tweet of the Day, both because it reflects that no one is buying…

At which point the entire mainstream media and political class will condemn all unions, union members and union supporters

Posted by  ▪  August 17, 2011
without waiting for more evidence, arrests, or anything else, because any act of violence requires universal and unflinching comdemnation of everyone reading the same publications as, or sharing general political beliefs similar to, the person or persons who shot at and vandalized the home of a non-union contractor: The Monroe County Sheriff’s Department is working to…

What’s the chance?

Posted by  ▪  August 17, 2011
That two different readers would photograph and send me photos of the same vehicle over seven months apart?  Different angles and lighting conditions. Take a look at the vehicle in this post from January 3, 2011, sent by reader Kathryn, and this photo sent to me yesterday by reader Alex, who writes: Love your…

Wisconsin Recall Results // Update – Dems hold both seats

Posted by  ▪  August 16, 2011
Post-mortem –  No excuses or hand holding.  Bad News:  Dems held both their seats, and Republicans hold the Senate by only one seat.   Good News:  Republicans hold the Governorship, Senate and Assembly, and the big things have been done, including the collective bargaining law, the budget and the redistricting.  The Dem gains…

Texas is the sponge soaking up Obama’s unemployment mess

Posted by  ▪  August 16, 2011
There is a very interesting blog post at Political Math (via Instapundit) explaining why the attacks on Rick Perry based on Texas’ job growth will fail. The attack on Perry, which the Axelrod/Plouffe message machine is pushing, is that Texas still has unemployment near the national average, any job growth is the result of…

Cuccinelli v. Warner – Oh yeah

Posted by  ▪  August 16, 2011
This would be good, via WaPo: Much of the speculation about Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s political future has focused on whether the Republican who has made a name for himself suing the federal government would run for re-election, or for governor in 2013 But in an interview with The Washington Post, Cuccinelli…

It wouldn’t kill ya to thank bloggers once in a while

Posted by  ▪  August 16, 2011
As readers know, I’ve been blogging about the Recall (Robert) Wirch effort for several months, long before the national media paid attention to the fact that there were Democratic State Senators in Wisconsin subject to recall. Here are links to some (but not all) of my posts regarding Recall Wirch: April 4 -…

Posted by  ▪  August 16, 2011

If I made a video debunking every moonbat bumper sticker …

Posted by  ▪  August 16, 2011
… I would not have any time left for doing really important things, like responding to pretentious numbskulls who object to me spiking the football. Thanks to reader Helen for forwarding this video by Andrew Klavan regarding the “war is not the answer” bumper sticker.  I think the same thing goes for the Coexist bumper…

Onward to Wisconsin Tuesday

Posted by  ▪  August 15, 2011
Tuesday is the last round of recall elections in Wisconsin, in which Democratic Senators James Holperin and Robert Wirch are being challenged. The races are expected to be tight (h/t reader Charles): The Wisconsin recall fight ends Tuesday, and while the state Senate is no longer in play, Republicans could cut into the…

Warren Buffett’s rank demagoguery on FICA

Posted by  ▪  August 15, 2011
Warren Buffett has an op-ed in The NY Times bemoaning the fact that he and other super-wealthy investors pay a lower percentage of their income in taxes than their secretaries and other lower-paid staff members.  This is an argument frequently heard from Democrats. But in making that argument Buffett misleadingly lumps federal income…

Name that bus tour

Posted by  ▪  August 15, 2011
I see that Mitt Romney has dubbed Obama’s bus tour the Magical Misery Tour. How about these alternatives: The Driving Through Flyover Country Tour. The “So This Is How The Common People Travel” Tour. The Make Sure They Don’t Cling To The Bus Tour. The “This Bus Tour Created or Saved 2,000,000 Jobs” Tour. Surely you could do better. The Twitter…

T-Paw Turns The Other Cheek To Bachmann

Posted by  ▪  August 15, 2011
In dropping out when he did, Tim Pawlenty may have done his apparent foe Michele Bachmann a big favor.   From their past scuffles in Minnesota politics to their fiery confrontation at last week’s debate to the fact that her defeating him in Iowa ultimately ended his campaign, it’s no secret…

Now would be the time

Posted by  ▪  August 15, 2011
says The Wall Street Journal for a new candidate to enter the Republican race, since the current three leaders (Romney, Bachmann, Perry) are lacking: Republicans and independents are desperate to find a candidate who can appeal across the party’s disparate factions and offer a vision of how to constrain a runaway government…

Report – CNN, CBS and NY Times polls show CNN, CBS and NY Times anti-Tea Party strategy working

Posted by  ▪  August 14, 2011
There does seem something very circular about CNN, CBS and NY Times polling showing an increase in negative views of the Tea Party, considering that such negative views are driven by biased CNN, CBS and NY Times reporting blaming the Tea Party movement for the S&P downgrade of the U.S. credit rating and a host of…
