Thanks to reader James for the link to this chart by Nate Silver, showing where Silver believes various potential Republian candidates fall on a sliding scale of insider/outsider and conservative/moderate:

Sweet spot, or mushy middle?

Not long after starting this blog I received an e-mail from Mark Finkelstein, who writes for Newsbusters, and for a while, at his own blog, Finkelblog.

Mark invited me on his long-running conservative talk show, The Right Angle, which had been on local Ithaca cable TV for over a decade.

Two things surprised...

The False Narrative Of Tea Party Violence Attempts Suicide

Obama’s speech at the Tucson memorial was an opportunity thrust upon him, not one of choice.

But the tone of the speech was consistent in many ways with the Obama 2.0 we saw during the lame duck session when Obama struck a tax deal with Republicans.  Coming together to get things done...

More dumbed-down talk about the Constitution from Tea Parties liberal columnists, this time Amanda Terkel (formerly of Think Progress) writing at HuffPo with the headline:

Scalia: Women Don’t Have Constitutional Protection Against Discrimination

Gee, Scalia must hate women.

Except that the headline is a good example of a half-truth.  Scalia’s point is the fairly...

Sent to me by a reader as a potential “Video of the Day” candidate, but deserves its own post.

As a youthful Zappa fan, I enjoyed this very much. The “I’m a conservative” statement comes at 3:15.

I didn’t realize until I graduated high school that there w...

Why Do Jews Still Vote For Democrats?

Comments

Posted by  ▪  Sunday, November 7, 2010 at 7:24pm

That’s the question being pondered from some fairly thoughtful discussion at American Thinker back in 2008 to some flame throwing from Eric Alterman just recently.

I expressed skepticism when a poll was released several months ago showing Jews moving away from Democrats, and while I have yet to see reliable data from the election...

Dead Heat in Indiana-09 (Todd Young v. Baron Hill)

Comments

Todd Young is on my Top 10 List, running against incumbent Baron Hill in Indiana-09 district.

Hill embodies the arrogance which has characterized Democratic Party control of Congress for the past several years:

New polling shows that the race is a toss-up.  Via The Hill,

Memo to the Right: “The Lombardi Rule” Is In Effect

We have heard so much about the supposed Buckley Rule, which Charles Krauthammer and other Mike Castle supporters over-simplistically synthesized as follows:

“Support the most conservative candidate who is electable.”

The Buckley Rule is for primaries.  The Delaware primary is over.  To paraphrase Krauthammer, Castle supporters didn’t go to Delaware and make it happen.

I know that you realize it, but this is a two-front political war.

I have read some profoundly stupid commentary on the right about Christine O’Donnell, pronouncing O’Donnell’s campaign dead because of a sophomoric series of appearances in the 1990s on Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher.

It appears that some people are hoping for...
