Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes, whose group of researchers has done more than anyone to document Elizabeth Warren’s false claims to be Cherokee, was incensed at Warren’s continued insistence that she is Native American:

Let  me make one thing clear. Your Native American issue has not been put to rest.

There is no question that Scott Brown won the debate last night.

It wasn’t a knock out.  As Howie Carr correctly notes, a man can’t get away with hitting a woman too hard in a debate:

When he was pummeling her on the asbestos litigation, and her $225,000 payday, and on the $700,000...

You remember Julia, the Obama campaign-issued woman who turned to government for help at various life stages. 

Those stages aptly were summarized in Iowahawk’s Julia’s Circle of Life.

Julia has come to symbolize the dependency state.  So I wondered what Julia must be thinking about Mitt Romney’s secret video about people taking responsibility...

There has been a complete lack of reality this week in our government and media.

Words are not deeds.  This is especially important to remember if you’re the President of the United States who has essentially talked himself into office.

Behold a paragraph from President Obama’s stirring acceptance speech at the convention:

Egyptian protesters on Tuesday took down the American flag from the walls of the US embassy in Cairo during a thousands-strong demonstration held to protest a short film produced by US based Coptic-Christians that critics say demeans Islam and the Prophet Mohammed.

I have enjoyed Larry Sabato’s coverage of elections both past and present, and his “Crystal Ball” reports are worth reading.

So I mean no disrespect by this.

It’s just that this tweet from Geoffrey Skelley of the Sabato Crystal Ball report seemed like it deserved an award for its obviousness:

Looks like Clint Eastwood got under Obama’s skin.

Obama sent this tweet today in response to Eastwood mocking Obama last night by using an empty chair as a prop (via The Rhetorican):

While I was very uncertain whether the Eastwood appearance worked, I now believe it did.

If it didn’t, Obama would not have felt the...

As news broke that a possible hurricane might disrupt the Republican National Convention, I predicted that Democrats would become religious quickly.

Not religious in terms of religion, but in terms of proclaiming that God was on their side for disrupting the RNC:
