Obama’s exact quotation (via Instapundit), in making his point about not being born with a silver spoon in his mouth: Somebody gave me an education.  I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth.  Michelle wasn’t.  But somebody gave us a chance — just like these folks up here are looking for…

I think the Richard Mourdock campaign finally has hit on a theme which needs repeating. Richard Lugar is running a desperate campaign, trying to distract from his record and to conjure up bizarre claims against Mourdock, such as the “Confederate Tie,” and false and misleading claims about Mourdock’s record.

I’m not jumping on the anti-Orrin Hatch bandwagon, and not making his primary race part of Operation Counterweight. Orrin Hatch is no Dick Lugar.

Spooned: Mark Levin: “Obama, it would seem, wants to deny to others what he will not deny to himself. He wants to deny to the children of others what he will not deny to his own children. He wants to amass riches, but he doesn’t want you to amass wealth. He doesn’t…

Definitely a contender. Sarah Palin on the Secret Service agent who checked her out: “Well, check this out bodyguard, you’re fired, and I hope his wife kicks his okole and sends him to the dog house long as he’s not eatin’ the dog along with his former boss.” Multiple levels of bestness there — the…

I have written quite a bit about the challenge by Richard Mourdock to Obama’s Favorite Republican, Richard Lugar. But one subject I haven’t touched upon was Mourdock’s valiant effort, against great political odds, to stand up for private bondholders against the Obama-enforced bailout of Chrysler. With barely two weeks until the primary, if…

Did you hear the latest in racial politics. Mitt Romney used the “n” word.  Not the “N” word, the “n” word as in “isn’t working.” Romney has a website devoted to the slogan: And has it hanging up behind him during speeches: And that has Tommy Christopher of Mediaite seeing things: The slogan is a multiple…

The French have their own presidential election on Sunday. Aside from their list of candidates, which would make many Americans feel relieved in comparison, the French have topped the US in media-related constraints. Until the last polling station closes at 8 p.m., French law forbids the release of polls and preliminary…
