Think a change of administration only matters if the incoming President can pass legislation? Here is a list of Justice Department jobs from the “Plum Book” which are filled at the discretion of the President. While legislation is important, these positions and hundreds more, will make the day to day decisions...

The widely reported news that Sarah Palin didn’t know Africa was a continent has been revealed to be a hoax. The news “source” supposedly inside the McCain campaign was an impostor, who even created a phony research institute to give legitimacy to his claims, and a faux blog on which to...

Conservatives face a choice. Yield to “progressive” policies which, once implemented will take a generation to undo, or stand on principles of free enterprise, individual liberty, and capitalism? Giving in is much easier, but in the long run more costly. We can learn a lot about the power of standing on...

The University of Michigan has an interesting set of maps colored red and blue depending upon how you look at it. While the country went blue (Democrat) on a state by state basis, on a county by county basis this still is a red (Republican) country.

Ever wonder what the Democrats would do if roles were reversed, and Republicans had swept a Democratic President ouf of office and taken control of Congress? James G. Wiles, in Farewell To Sweetness & Light has some astute observations, and some advice for the outgoing Bush administration:

“Rahm is for Rahm.” Sounds like Obama has found a kindred spirit.

What did Nancy Reagan ever do to Obama to deserve being mocked at Obama’s first press conference? Not only inappropriate, but telling. UPDATE: Obama apologizes.

An excellent article by Quinn Hillier, Saul Alinsky Takes the White House, makes a point similar to what I made in my article, Will Obama’s Election Result in One Person, One Vote, One Time? Hillier points out that it will not be easy for conservatives to recover because the Alinsky model...

In the video below, Obama supporters celebrating his victory unfurled the flag of the former Soviet Union. I assume these young revelers, just back from class on deconstructing everything that supposedly is wrong with the United States, have never read the works of Alexandr Solzhenitsyn, or heard of the Gulag, the...

Take a deep breath. Get a little sleep. Don’t bother with finger pointing and recriminations. Don’t blame Sarah Palin, she’s the only thing that kept this race competitive. We can’t change history, but we shouldn’t draw the wrong conclusions.

This country remains a center-right nation (just look at some of the ballot...
