Elizabeth Warren has raised $24 million, but still is not Cherokee

Sympathetic reporters in the MSM are practically giddy that Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee problem has not hurt her fundraising. Warren’s Second Quarter haul of $8.6 million brings her total fundraising to over $24 million.  In June, as Warren’s obfuscation on the Cherokee issue was in full throttle and as she ducked a group of Cherokee women…

I’ve written before about the latest fad on the American left, accusations of Israeli “pinkwashing.” Various anti-Israeli left-wing professors and professional activists, including those who hold themselves out as part of the gay rights movement, hold conferences to denounce pinkwashing, the positive publicity generated by Israel because of its record on treatment…

Changing their minds, about everything. Despite the splash that followed Jonathan Krohn’s departure from conservativsm, I should hope this comes as absolutely no surprise to anyone. Discussing his ideological shift, Krohn said, I mean, come on, I was between 13 and 14 when I was regurgitating these talking points! What does a…

Oh looky, Obama’s back to attacking the Top 5%

Oh looky, Obama’s back to attacking the Top 5%

Posted by
7/9/2012 at 1:59pm
Obama is refocusing his campaign on attacking the Top 5%. As documented here in great detail, that’s where Obama started during the 2008 campaign. Over time Obama narrowed the demonization to the Top 2%, then the Top 1%, then a few hundred people who might pay more under the “Buffett Rule.” Apparently that narrowing…

Many of you took all or part of last week off from work, so you probably didn’t get to spend as much time on the internet as you do during normal “working” hours. I noticed a distinct drop in traffic from government i.p. addresses.  Was Washington closed last week? For those of you…

The discussion in the video below (h/t jimzinsocal)  is pretty good on where the campaign stands.  Krauthammer is hard on Romney for failing to score hard blows on Obama over the economy, something echoed by Bill Kristol. Am I concerned?  Sure.  At least based on chatter, it looks like while Obama is missing big hits…

Why doesn’t Obama own some of the job losses between election and inauguration?

Obama endlessly cites the loss of 750,000 “per month” just before he took office, as if that bottom was destined to be continued forever but for Obama. It’s the extrapolation fallacy. This video pretty much sums up the theme: Yet why shouldn’t Obama own at least some of those job losses between his election…

Last week, David Bernstein of The Boston Phoenix launched a broadside against what he termed the “right-wing smear machine” coming to get Elizabeth Warren, which I highlighted in my post Right wing smear machine to blame for Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee problem (again). The attack by Bernstein was pretty sweeping: But the intense interest on…
