Posted by  ▪  June 21, 2011
Via HotAir via WaPo comes news that Michele Bachmann “reportedly” ordered Ed Rollins to apologize to Sarah Palin for the nasty remarks Rollins threw Palin’s way his first day on the job as a senior Bachmann campaign advisor. I’ve been busy the past few days with the transition to the new blog, so…

Is Netroots Nation hiding in Providence in 2012?

Posted by  ▪  June 20, 2011
When I learned earlier today that Netroots Nation 2012 was going to be in Providence, I joked that I would be holding a party at my house. On second thought, maybe there is more to the selection of Providence than meets the eye. There is no real logic to Providence for a national…

The Conservatory lands, too

Posted by  ▪  June 20, 2011
Or is it “takes off”?  Whatever, two of my favorite bloggers, Dan Collins and Joy McCann, have launched The Conservatory: The Conservatory is meant to be a lot more than a news-aggregation site: it’s intended to provide free-market types with a sense of community, which can be sorely lacking for many of us. We…

Party at my house for Netroots Nation 2012

Posted by  ▪  June 20, 2011
This is almost as good as Ann Althouse having the union protests right outside her window. Netroots Nation, attended by all of my very good blog-friends, will be held in Providence! All the nutroots in my home state and not far from my house in the most important presidential election year since the…

Hey, that’s my line

Posted by  ▪  June 20, 2011
Spotted by reader Will in Denver, Colorado. No really, that’s my line (well, pretty close, ” Proudly, I was against Obamamania before it was cool to be against Obamamania”).   I invented it.  
 

The Glitter-ification of Politics

Posted by  ▪  June 19, 2011
Throwing things at politicians is a bad idea.   Anything.   How is security supposed to know if the perp is throwing glitter, or acid, or holding a knife.  Moving towards politicians in a threatening manner is just a bad idea. The MoveOn.org activist who moved in a threatening manner towards Rand Paul last year…

Posted by  ▪  June 19, 2011
Now that the new blog is up and running, and mostly bug free (you never really know for sure until you turn it live no matter how much testing you do), I’m getting all reflective and stuff about blogging. I don’t regret starting with Blogger. In fact, if not for Blogger I…

Posted by  ▪  June 18, 2011
The U.N. Human Rights Council has reaffirmed its singular goal of attacking and delegitimizing Israel. Via Ynet, HRC keeps clause dedicated to Israel: Israel demanded Friday a UN vote and called on members to vote against a Human Rights Council agenda for the next five years, which will keep Israel as the only permanent state to…
