But who do we vote in?

Posted by  ▪  September 15, 2011
There’s an ornery mood out there. Thanks to reader Bob, who writes: Bumper sticker seen at a restaurant in Loveland, Colorado.  I saw it going into the restaurant and didn’t think much of it. On the way out I saw the owner of the truck getting in it and mentioned to him that…

When Sensitivity Becomes Destructive

Posted by  ▪  September 14, 2011
It sounds like a headline from The Onion: “Jewish prof forced to defend himself against anti-Semitism claims.”  Cameron Johnston, who has been teaching at York [University] for more than 30 years, has been forced to respond to allegations that he made anti-Semitic remarks in a lecture on Monday afternoon after a student…

Warning on $5 Obama dinner raffle

Posted by  ▪  September 14, 2011
We’ve been there before, a $5 raffle for a chance to have dinner with the President of the United States. The $5 doesn’t go to the government to help pay down debt, it goes to Obama’s campaign.  It’s a way to gin up the “small donor” and total donor numbers, and as…

Teapot Solyndra, Part 2

Posted by  ▪  September 14, 2011
When I dubbed the nascent Solyndra scandal “Teapot Solyndra” in memory of the Teapot Dome Scandal, I worried that I might be getting ahead of myself. But with this administration, it’s hard to get ahead of oneself.  Fearing the worst usually is the safest bet. And that worst fear seems to becoming true, as the coordination…

The morning after

Posted by  ▪  September 14, 2011
What a night.  Two big wins in NY-09 and NV-02. Quote of the night: “It’s a very difficult district for Democrats,” said Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, noting its Democratic margins there tend to be the second lowest of all the districts in New York City. Well yes, if you define…

NY-09 Results (AP Calls Race for Republican)(Victory Song and Tweet of Night added)

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
I know you wanted the Official Legal Insurrection Victory Dance, or at least a little celebratory dance.  But as mentioned earlier in the night, this district was heavily Jewish and Asian, so we will go to song: And Tweet of Night:   Turner speech — Mr. President, people are unhappy with economy and Israel policy. …

Weprin Camp Conducts Phony “Jews 4 Jesus 4 Turner” Voter Suppression Calls

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
Ace reports: You know what Jews really don’t like? Jews for Jesus. I have a lot of Jewish friends, and they almost all go banana-sandwich over this. They don’t like the invitation to conversion. They do react as if what is being discussed is nearly a hate-crime…. But a bunch of dirty-tricksters are playing…

Thatcher: En Vogue?

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
My friend sent me this link yesterday, and I could hardly believe the headline: Margaret Thatcher has become a hip youth icon. Harry Mount was at a party: held at Maggie’s, the Thatcher-themed nightclub on the Fulham Road, in west London. It will come as no surprise to Dan [Hannan]‘s readers that he is…

Wisconsin unions start feeding on each other

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
If you want a good measure of how deeply the collective bargaining bill in Wisconsin has disrupted public sector unions, there is no better example than the Wisconsins Education Association Council (WEAC). Last month WEAC announced that it was laying off 40% of its staff.  With little over which to collectively bargain,…

Newt rising?

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
Newt Gingrich has found his voice in the recent two debates.  He has been the most forceful and articulate voice lancing Obama and everything Obama stands for. Sure, Newt has the “baggage” but he is rising?
 

Let’s Get Real On Constitutional Amendments – And Stop Promising Them

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
Constitutional amendments are oddly popular these days in Republican circles: A Federal Marriage Amendment, a Balanced Budget Amendment, and a constitutional amendment banning abortion have all been part of either congressional proposals or presidential candidate promises. This is a mistake.  Controversial issues such gay marriage, abortion, or massive budget changes are by…

The American people can handle the truth about Obama’s phony jobs bill

Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011
There is a good reason Obama did not unveil his jobs bill prior to his jobs speech. It’s because the jobs bill is not a jobs bill, it is the tax increase Obama has been hoping for since he was a candidate, taking $400 billion from people making $200,000 or more (couples making…
