You already know how Media Matters, Think Progress, and other left-wing groups are targeting Rush Limbaugh’s advertisers with threats of secondary boycotts. The Rush secondary boycott is part of a strategy which has been refined by left-wing groups like Color of Change over the past several years to bully advertisers into dropping right-wing speech.  That…

From reader Sean, who took this photo in New Canaan, CT: I’ve recently started following your blog, finding it informative and entertaining and as a non-liberal law professor your perspective is refreshing. I graduated from law school not too long ago and was alarmed at the lack of diversity at the faculty…

Mitt Romney: Santo’s not conservative enough to be Veep (h/t Uncle Samuel): “Well that would preclude, of course, Rick Santorum,” Romney said. “Because, I mean, look at his record. I find it interesting that he continues to describe  himself as the real conservative. This is the guy who voted against the  right…

Bob Turner won the race for the Congressional seat vacated by Anthony Weiner.  (Oh, what a night.) Redistricting in NY State looks to eliminate his district, something that was anticipated even before Turner’s victory. So Turner is striking back, and has just announced plans to run against Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, via Roll…

That’s what David Axelrod tweeted then quickly deleted, as reported at The Atlantic: Obama strategist David Axelrod tweeted a not-quite-decipherable message Monday that included a link to a story about Mormon women being erroneously barred from some official ceremonies because they were menstruating. Then he deleted the tweet. What does it all…

A month ago it didn’t look like it would turn out this way, but a month of ineternational dawdling has given the Assad regime the time it needed to crush rebels in their last remaining stronghold in the northern city of Idlib:  The Syrian army has recaptured the northern rebel stronghold of Idlib near the…

It is shocking.  (h/t @joshjonsmith) Study: Liberals More Likely To Block Online Friends Over Political Disagreements People with liberal views are almost twice as likely as conservatives to unfriend someone on social media over political disagreements,…

I posted yesterday about a list of companies which have instructed Premiere Networks not to run their ads on conservative talk radio shows, for fear of reaction from “a very small percentage of the listening public” (emphasis mine): These advertisers have made a commitment to using radio, both network and local, in…

It just never stops, as reported by Israel Matzav, as this photo is going viral via Twitter but the child was hurt in an accident several years ago, not killed by Israelis, and for the kicker, it was circulated by a U.N. employee: More on Pallywood:  Another Pallywood hoax exposed, again.

Mitt Romney is a weak frontrunner, anyone who thinks otherwise is not being realistic. But he is the frontrunner. Yet Romney seems not to be able to distinguish the two. And that is part of the reason why he is a “weak” frontrunner.

There’s a lot of talk today about imposing a coffee mandate on employers, including Mormon institutions which oppose the use of caffeine, because of the health benefits of coffee. Not enough. It must be a “good coffee” mandate. We have something here that’s free and they call “coffee,” but the lab tests have not…

The Breitbart video of Barack Obama embracing Prof. Derrick Bell, one of the founders of critical race theory, has been dismissed as a dud and failure. But the dialogue about how that narrative fits into Obama’s campaign tactics — something I explored on Day 2 of this blog — must have the Obama campaign…

Gawker Media’s websites, particularly its flagship Gawker website, are notorious gossipers. Gawker in many ways is an equal opportunity attacker, but two of its highest profile stories were sexualized attacks against conservative female politicians. Wonkette, known for going after Michelle Malkin, Sarah Palin and other conservative women, was started by Gawker Media but spun…
