I haven’t posted about the Twitter and blog war which broke out over a clip of Mike Tyson trash talking Sarah Palin in very explicit and violent sexual ways, although I did spotlight Dan Riehl’s post about it as Post of the Day.

The controversy is not that a convicted rapist would...

As you know, I’m visiting here.  And one thing I’ve noticed is that there are quite a few homeless people.

Why are the people of San Francisco so heartless?  They must all be Tea Party supporters.

Why don’t the politicians here care about the poor?  They must be Republicans.

How can citizens just walk by without helping? ...

I expect cheap shots at Sarah Palin from Politico.  It’s why Politico’s news operation has lost much of its credibility with me.  Witness the photo Politico decided to run accompanying a hit piece on Palin — not exactly subtle editorializing of what barely purports to be a news story.

In the aftermath of the overthrow of the Mubarak regime in Egypt, Eugene Robinson of The Washington Post penned a meme which has become common among the mainstream media and left-blogosphere, that The GOP loves freedom, but not for Egypt:

Posted by  ▪  Sunday, February 13, 2011 at 4:07pm 2/13/2011 at 4:07pm

Medical malpractice tort reform is one of those supposed remedies frequently mentioned as a cure to lowering health care costs. 

Currently being debated is H.R. 5 (most recent mark up here) which would create a federal medical malpractice reform modeled on what has taken place in California, including caps on non-economic...

This is a follow up to my earlier post about the findings by a social psychlogist that there is a “statistically impossible” skew in the percentages of social psychologists who self-identify as liberal and conservative, reflecting a pervasive bias against conservatives throughout the social sciences.

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.

A Google search reveals that there are a number of others also urging Pence to run.

Pence has a self-imposed end of January deadline to decide.  So before he opts out of the presidential race to run for...

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:

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...
