Erick Erickson: “moving on from Sarah Palin is like leaving Scientology”

I guess that makes me a Scientologist, because I’ve posted repeatedly that Palin holds a special position because there is no one — not even George W. Bush — who has been the subject of the Democratic, mainstream media and left-blogosphere smear machine to the extent Palin has.

So yes, I do take it personally...

Michele Bachmann doubles down on Ed Rollins

Michele Bachmann is doubling down on Ed Rollins, even though health concerns (allegedly) are the reason he will not run her campaign on a day-to-day basis:

Sources close to Rep. Michele Bachmann tell National Review Online that the Minnesota Republican has known for days that Ed Rollins, her campaign manager, would be...

I don’t have much time to “analyze” Palin’s speech in Indianola (text here), Iowa and what it all means in terms of the political landscape.

But what jumped out at me is that she expressed one of the core principles of the Tea Party movement, that corporate interests are not necessarily our interests:

Now to be fair,...

Consider this an “open” thread.

Because of travel, it’s unlikely I’ll get to watch the speech live.  It’s scheduled for about 1 p.m. Central.

The latest conventional wisdom is that there will be no presidential announcement or announcement that she’s not running.  Rather, the speech will be a “full throttled” defense of the...

It’s lonely out here in independent blogger world, working for the greater glory not the greater paycheck.

That’s not to say bloggers who work for The Man are not independent thinkers and writers, but the pressures are there depending upon who The Man is:

An escalating series of insults and allegations exchanged between conservative...

Palin in Iowa Video – No one does it better

Regardless of whether you support her or not, for President or not, no one does inspirational political (campaign?) videos better than Palin.

Palin’s Mama Grizzlies and Together videos were historic.

This is another home run (h/t TheOtherMcCain):

Once again, the mainstream media is chasing after Sarah Palin as she visits various part of the country.

Just like her early summer bus tour, I can’t help but laugh to see the likes of Chuck Todd breathlessly reporting such important events as Palin getting back in a minivan:

As for where she’s heading,...

As you know, I have zero tolerance for Republicans who trash talk Sarah Palin.  Three years of Palin Derangement Syndrome have made me allergic; Palin stands apart from other Republican candidates in that regard.

There is only one candidate in the Republican field whose...

It’s hard to believe the media narrative about Palin ever could change.

But it could change among the less crazed. MSNBC always will be foaming at the mouth, but others would have a hard time keeping up the hate.

Update:  To readers complaining about how Bachmann was portrayed in the CNN clip, they...

There are two candidates still waiting, either of whom could shake up the Republican primaries big time.

It’s impossible to read the tea leaves on whether Sarah Palin is running, but it seems increasingly likely that Rick Perry is running.

How much longer can they wait?

Bonus question:  If Palin is not running, what’s the...

No of course not.   Margaret Thatcher is not in good health, rarely goes out or receives visitors, and therefore had to miss the dedication of a statue of Ronald Reagan in London:
