League of Women Voters – Scott Brown Wants Kids To Choke To Death

Posted by  ▪  May 10, 2011
This horrible advertisement is enough to make me love Scott Brown again, because it reminds me of the tactics we are up against in 2012:The League of Women Voters, which is spending $1.2 million to run the ads against Brown,  runs a toned-down version in an ad buy two-thirds smaller against Claire McCaskill,…

Only in New York….

… or the Caribbean. Kathleen I just came back from having lunch with my boyfriend near his office in Battery Park. It’s a truly lovely day in New York, roughly 65° with clear blue skies. My day was going swimmingly, in fact, until I stumbled upon a rally of misfits protesting…

George Bush’s supposed walk-away from the hunt for bin Laden has been all over the news, in the blogosphere, and even in the comments here.Everyone points to this video, six months after 9/11.I have pointed out that the video is overstated, because at the time Bush was not trying to raise…

Kloppenburg Demands “Ballot Security” (but not in Dane County)

Posted by  ▪  May 10, 2011
Last night I called on JoAnne Kloppenburg to concede.  I don’t think she listened.Kloppenburg’s only chance of winning is to knock out several thousand legitimate votes by challenging “ballot security” based on gaps and openings in ballot bags.But I also noted that this was just a game.  The actual recount numbers, particularly…

Obama’s 60 Minutes Appearance

Posted by  ▪  May 9, 2011
I thought it was one of his best appearances.  As I watched it, I kept thinking, “Do I know this guy?”He said mostly all the right things, love of country, forceful defense, and so on and so on.  I didn’t like his comment about how there was no need to “spike…

Kloppenburg Still Raising Money For Recount

Posted by  ▪  May 9, 2011
As I posted yesterday, the city of Brookfield recount is complete and there was almost no change in the vote count from the canvass and as reported by Brookfield on election night.  That all three vote counts match almost precisely puts to bed, in the minds of rational people, the suggestions…

Here are your talking points, folks:average lifetime earnings advantage for college graduates is well below the…

How much like the West should Singapore become?

Posted by  ▪  May 8, 2011
KathleenI just finished a research paper on Singapore’s Second Industrial Revolution when, in the early 1980s, they incentivized growth in their tech sector to compete with other first world countries — a departure from their manufacturing-based economy.
