One part of my communications with Brown Prof. Naoko Shibusawa has stuck in my mind:

“You can quote those two lines. Those only.”

As Americans are debating over how to react to the situation in Syria, there have been some fascinating developments elsewhere in the world well worth noting.

For example, one of Scandinavia’s most nanny-state governments has had an election that tilted their state dramatically rightward:

Update:  Big Oops – Business Insider says Reince Preibus did not say self-deportation “racist”.  See new post as to how RNC Press Office had confirmed the quote was accurate, but now says word was “hurts us” not “racist.”

As an amateur Egyptologist who occasionally writes about Egypt at the Temple of Mut, my specialty is mummies. So, I know dead things and can say with certainty: The Tea Party is NOT dead.

Operation Demoralize Post-Election Edition

Introspection and reevaluation — and even a bit of circular firing squad — are necessary after an electoral loss.

There is a full blown attempt to cement in the popular consciousness...

Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day has proven something I’ve noticed before.

Conservatives are very good at buycotts, but very bad at boycotts.

There have been attempts by some conservative and religious groups to boycott various businesses over political issues. But I can’t think of one, at least not recently, that has caught on.

With friends like this, those who want to defeat Obama don’t need enemies.

Having savaged Newt Gingrich for months, S.E. Cupp now is coming to the aid of Ann Romney by praising Ann for “marrying up“:

As a thirtysomething, city-dwelling, hypereducated, independent-thinking  woman, I suppose I should recoil at the idea of one...

There is a prime opportunity in the Indiana Republican primary to elect a solid conservative, Richard Mourdock, and to retire Obama’s favorite Republican, Richard Lugar, who has an abysmal voting record.

I will be supporting Mourdock, and I hope you will help with this important race.

I first wrote about Mourdock back in November.  Since...

I previously posted about Rick Santorum’s endorsement in 2004 of Arlen Specter against a challenge from Pat Toomey, in what was a precursor to the Tea Party v. Establishment fights to come.
