Help me pick my Top 10 House races for 2012

Posted by  ▪  June 24, 2011
The last thing I want this blog to turn into is all Obama all the time (hah!).  That’s going to be hard in 2012, but we really need to keep focused on the insurance policy, the House and Senate.  Contrary to what others are saying, there is a strong likelihood that Obama…

Least Shocking Blog Post Title Ever: “Village Voice Editor discovers she hates Israel, curses when challenged”

Posted by  ▪  June 23, 2011

Hey Ed Rollins, you deal with it (Part 2)(the start of a series?)

Posted by  ▪  June 23, 2011
Maybe this will become the “Hey Ed Rollins, you deal with it” series, after Part 1 regarding the foul Rolling Stone attack on Michele Bachmann went over so well. This is how they do it, but you know all about that Ed, because you did it too:

Posted by  ▪  June 23, 2011
Yes, “drill baby drill” will not increase the supply of oil this month, but if we had been drilling baby drilling the past two and one-half years, instead of stifling production almost everywhere, we would not need to be releasing our strategic petroleum reserves.  Via AP: The Obama administration has decided to…

If Even Ben Bernanke’s Not On Your Side, You Know You’re Spending Too Much . . .

Posted by  ▪  June 23, 2011
While I’m certainly not a fan, especially of his policies like the finally ending QE2, I was pleasantly surprised to see Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke offer up a sliver of straight talk on President Obama’s record breaking deficits earlier this week.

Someone please explain LinkedIn to me

Posted by  ▪  June 22, 2011
Apparently Legal Insurrection has a LinkedIn account.  I discovered this tonight.  I must have forgotten about it.

Posted by  ▪  June 22, 2011
I was afraid this would happen. Drawn into the Blago saga once again, unable to resist now that the jury just finished its 8th day of deliberations without a verdict.  The Chicago Sun-Times’ Blago Blog reports: Rod Blagojevich’s jury ends day 8 of their discussions.
