The nature of the hostility directed at me has changed over the years. In 2008-2010, it was mostly Obama supporters upset that someone who taught at an Ivy League law school would dissent.  I guess they figured their love letters weren’t working, so that has mostly (but not completely) stopped.

I previously wrote about how BuzzFeed Politics has combined “the culture” and savvy crafting into a highly effective tool for undermining Republicans with subtle and not-so-subtle mockery.  “Look at the goofy cat, look at the goofy celeb, look at the goofy Republican” is more dangerous to us than a 5000-word article…

As my San Diego compatriot Dean Riehm notes: Russia has become to meteors/meteorites what trailer parks have been to tornadoes. Yesterday, a space object thought to be a “tiny asteroid” exploded over the Russia.

How low will left-wing organizations go in demonizing Marco Rubio? Don’t tell me WATER. WATER is nothing compared to this hit on Rubio at Colorlines, the left-wing activist group previously featured on the Saturday Night Card Game for its claims that the term “illegal alien” was racist. An author at Colorlines announced that Marco Rubio’s task was…

When Professor Jacobson reported that cancer funding research had been used to smear the Tea Party, calling it a tool of a big tobacco and the Koch brothers based on plans hatched over a decade ago, I had one thought: Anti-Tea Party advocates suffer from the single biggest case of projection in the…

Here’s a lesson in the wages of appeasement. When the manhunt for Christopher Dorner got desperate, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck panicked and announced that he planned to reinvestigate Dorner’s firing which the former cop, according to his Facebook manifesto, blamed on racism.
