The petri dish of Democrat candidates in the special election Democrat primary for Jesse Jackson, Jr.’s former congressional seat remains teeming with candidates, despite the Chicago Democratic Machine’s heavies being deployed to empty it out. So far only two have caved, Toi Hutchinson who dropped out of the race over the weekend, and…

Behold “liberal” cartoonist/columnist David Horsey’s latest horsey—- in the Los Angeles Times. It is no wonder Florida Sen. Marco Rubio needed to grab a bottle of water in the middle of delivering the Republican response to President Obama’s State of the Union address. The speech he was given to recite w…

Disgusting. And probably will sell for a lot, because it’s history. From ProJo: Bidding is under way for the bloody sock worn by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling in the 2004 World Series, which he put up for sale after the collapse of his Providence-based video game company. The sports director at Heritage Auctions…

From John: Living in New England I’m used to being surrounded by those on the opposite end of the political spectrum from myself. Liberals, more often than Conservatives, like to advertize their liberalism in the form of bumper stickers. Here’s one such self-congratulating Liberal I found while at work. I guess what’s throwing…

I don’t claim to be a marketing genius, and I don’t drink much (at which point you collectively say, “that explains a lot”), but it truly made no sense to me when Maker’s Mark decided to dilute its bourbon. It has surrendered to the outcry: You spoke. We listened. ow.ly/hN3kC— Maker’s Mark (@MakersMark)…

It’s a good thing for anti-Semites that Israel exists.  If it weren’t for the Jewish state, they’d have no place to hide their “socialism of fools.”  What used to be considered déclassé—“Jews run the world,”etc.—can now be safely repackaged with little or no criticism as “Israel runs the world.” The latest adherent…

The nature of the hostility directed at me has changed over the years. In 2008-2010, it was mostly Obama supporters upset that someone who taught at an Ivy League law school would dissent.  I guess they figured their love letters weren’t working, so that has mostly (but not completely) stopped. The most unhinged…

I previously wrote about how BuzzFeed Politics has combined “the culture” and savvy crafting into a highly effective tool for undermining Republicans with subtle and not-so-subtle mockery.  “Look at the goofy cat, look at the goofy celeb, look at the goofy Republican” is more dangerous to us than a 5000-word article…

As my San Diego compatriot Dean Riehm notes: Russia has become to meteors/meteorites what trailer parks have been to tornadoes. Yesterday, a space object thought to be a “tiny asteroid” exploded over the Russia. The ensuing shock wave shattered glass throughout the region, injuring over 1000 people. “When I saw some white narrow…

How low will left-wing organizations go in demonizing Marco Rubio? Don’t tell me WATER. WATER is nothing compared to this hit on Rubio at Colorlines, the left-wing activist group previously featured on the Saturday Night Card Game for its claims that the term “illegal alien” was racist. An author at Colorlines announced that Marco Rubio’s task was…
