Pander the Panda Bear?

Pander the Panda Bear?

Seems like most of the conservative blogosphere is at CPAC.  I haven’t ever done CPAC.  I’m a loner by nature, the type of rugged individualist that made this country great.  But I digress.

This video by Robert Stacy McCain made me feel car sick from the shaking, so I don’t think I’ll ever do CPAC.  There would have been a good reason for me to do CPAC this year, but I’ll tell you about that tomorrow.

Until then:


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


I understand – I’m more of a loner by nature myself. As a novelist and screenwriter – I’m more of a listener than a talker.

When I listen to Newt speak – it hits home that this is a man who has made mistakes, has owned up to them, has made his peace with God and loves this country.

As said by his daughter:

“Many decades later, Cushman says, Gingrich “truly believes that this presidential campaign, and politics, is his service to his country.” Quietly bowing out, simply to return to private life, would be out of character. “This is not some personal vendetta,” she says. “You volunteer to run for president. No one forces you to do it. This is what he feels he is supposed to be doing. I’m sure the Romney people would love for him to drop out, but it’s not going to happen. He’s got that infantry mentality — he’ll keep trudging ahead.”

I’m a fighter and I appreciate those who are willing to battle. People may think Newt is down – but I can tell and he knows – he will win.

I agree with those university doctors. I’ve always believed it healthier to do pap screening and proctological exams on the street corner rather than germ-filled office medical suites. Just makes sense.

“I’m a loner by nature, the type of rugged individualist that made this country great.”

Ever do the Myers-Briggs personality thingy, Prof.?

Be interested to know.

To answer your question; yes, yes I would pay five dollars for a chance to ride a bus with Mitt. (Although I actually wont, since I live off of taxpayer backed loan money.)

CPAC is a blast, but you have to be ready for massive self-promotion and schmoozing. I’ll do it again sometime, when the kids are older and my wife can come and enjoy herself.

Doctors in Union Sick Note Scam Contend Street Corner Exams Better Than Office Visits…. If that’s the kind of exams they are doing in their offices, they deserve to be sued for med malpractice. But I’m spoiled, I have a doctor who actually takes time with her patients and listens. She better, she doesn’t accept any insurance and requires cash up front.

Re: SGK/PP… it was a shakedown. Only question that remains, how much larger will the donations be from now on? Now that SGK flinched, they are easy prey.

    Isn’t SGK now in a tough spot. Some, like me, can refuse to donate on the grounds they give money to Planned Parenthood. Others will refuse because they said they won’t give to Planned Parenthood.

    By the way, I’ve seen middle-aged women doing fund raising for SGK, and they all have beautiful hair and lovely breasts. Of course, we all worry about breast cancer. But what about the cancer caused by the chemicals used to color women’s hair? Women who get their hair colored are significantly more likely to get bladder cancer than those who don’t. The women who color women’s hair are even more likely to get bladder cancer. I guess it’s because we can see their breasts and their hair, but we can’t see their bladders.

      I should have been more clean. I wonder how much larger the donation from SGK to PP is going to be this year. Will PP whine if they don’t think it’s large enough? Extortion is an ugly affair.

You are, you are!! Love this.

William, would you go to see a little lady form Wasilla???

At CPAC 2011 an impersonator of a certain lady caused a stir…think of the hubbub the real thing will cause!!!!

“I haven’t ever done CPAC. I’m a loner by nature, the type of rugged individualist that made this country great.”

Oh my God. You sound like me. You could be a social phobic, Professor. I love people, at least in theory, but I always feel uneasy about group dynamics. I’m a loner … but it tends to make me lonely.

Here’s an idea … if you did choose to hold a Legal Insurrection convention in Vegas in the summertime, it could double as a political/social phobic convention.

Actor Larry Hagman refuses to speak one day of the week (Sundays, I believe) and scribbles notes to anyone he needs to communicate with that day.

I can just picture a few hundred LI conventioneers enjoying dinner while tapping away on their laptops to communicate with each other. We could all promise not to talk with each other and only communicate through the LI comments sections.

    Vegas in the middle of summer… hmm. Do we get a/c?

    My parents lived in Vegas from 1964 to 1967… it never lives up to the stories they tell.

The NYT is such a despicable leftist rag. They didn’t mention the name of the benefactor who is bankrolling the makeover of the plaza in front of the Met until the 5th paragraph. If not mentioned in the title, it ought to be noted in the very first sentence that David Koch is shelling out $60 million to make it happen.

Then, to add further insult, they didn’t bother to get a quote from any of the museum’s trustees, it’s executives, a city official, etc. that the gift is even appreciated. Not one syllable.

I’m surprised they didn’t get a quote from one of the hotdog vendors out front saying he’s not looking forward to the renovation because it might hurt his business. Or get a quote from one of the moguls living on Fifth Avenue to complain about the dust he’ll have to put up with.

I’d pay 5 bucks and wear an “I ride inside” t shirt

Wow now I know how Franken won in MN. No wonder these subhuman DemonRATS have fought every attempt at passing ID laws tooth and nail.

I read the editorial at National Review about Mitt’s pandering on the Minimum Wage, although technically it’s not a pander since I’m sure it’s something he actually believes (for whatever that’s worth).

Mitt’s announced position on the minimum wage is part and parcel of his embrace of the Democratic view of poverty, its causes and remedies, and their version of the “Safety Net”. Noblesse Oblige, and all that. It’s of a piece with RomneyCare and the whole package of a benevolent government caring for its charges, “the masses”, who aren’t able and can’t be taught to care for themselves (poor things). This is who Mitt Romney has always been, and it’s who he will be if gets elected.

They’ve been trying to shove him down our throats since at least 2007 or 2008. For them to feign dismay over his actual beliefs is more than a little odd. Did they ever actually talk to him or examine his record?

“I haven’t ever done CPAC. I’m a loner by nature, the type of rugged individualist that made this country great. ”

Admit it Professor, you would have had fun meeting the Mittens shills and putting them in their place.

Maybe next.

NRO waited until Mitt flip-flopped on his minimum wage position before doing a nice job explaining the economic nightmare that is minimum wage and then NRO says:

If Governor Romney wishes to put more money into the pockets of minimum-wage workers, he would be far better off supporting an increased in the Earned-Income Tax Credit. The EITC is a defective welfare program, but it has an important advantage over raising the minimum wage: It does not give employers an incentive to fire low-wage workers or to outsource labor.

Wow – a so-called conservative organization supports the so-called “Earned Income Credit” law noting that the tax code does not encourage employers to reduce staff, but it does burden taxpayers with higher incomes above $44K (if married)to pay a higher rate in order to make a redistribution to folks who had zero tax liability. Hah! I will bet that some people think that you have to have paid withholding into the government in order to get paid back for income taxes.

Propaganda out there notes that “twenty percent of taxpayers eligible for a key tax credit don’t claim it on their federal returns. More than 26 million workers received earned income tax credits averaging $2,240 last year — but roughly 6.5 million left potentially thousands of dollars on the table by skipping the credit.”

I’m starting to think that Romney supporters are even more obnoxious than he is — sort of like the far left wing of the party’s version of the Paulinistas.

Mercifully, there are very few of them.

1. Only if you’ve lived among liberals can you truly appreciate the joys of being a loner

2. If someone wins the Mitt ride, does the person get a choice of riding inside with Mitt or on top with the dog?

Mitt has a few people willing to give him millions of dollars, but he doesn’t have millions of people willing to give him a few dollars and that is an important difference when it comes to winning elections.

3. Newt’s a fighter and we need this man, he fights.
