And does not immunize you from criticism when you do. From Democracy Now, Tuscon shooting victim Eric Fuller says: It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target. Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled—senseless hatred leading to...

After Prof. Jacobson’s introduction, I certainly hope you will find me a suitable addition to Legal Insurrection! It would be wrong of me to ignore the biggest news of the political year in my first post, and I’m sure nobody here will mind being reminded...

The Providence Journal, the only statewide daily newspaper in Rhode Island which dominates news coverage, has endorsed Democrat David Cicilline for Congress in the RI-01 District, running against John Loughlin.  As my readers know, this is my home district and I support Loughlin. Unfortunately, the PolitiFact...

The latest Mason-Dixon Poll released by the Las Vegas Review-Journal shows Reid up 1 point, 45-44. The headlines are screaming that 68% of voters would have preferred another GOP candidate, but that seems like a meaningless number since the choice is between Reid and Angle, and...

The result of the injunction granted today by the federal court in Arizona preventing the key provisions of S.B. 1070 from taking effect is not just the maintenance of the status quo. At a legal level, it is true that nothing has changed. S.B. 1070...

The spinning for Harry Reid is in full throttle. The meme is changing — according to Democratic insiders! — from one of doomed Harry Reid to Harry Reid the survivor: There’s no denying that Reid still trails in most polls and that his approval ratings...

The left-wing blogosphere is full of useful idiots, who pretend that the flotilla which just was stopped by Israel was a humanitarian mission. The flotilla was organized by the Islamist government in Turkey to aid Hamas with the goal of opening up shipping channels for...

“Unexpected” has become the term of choice for the mainstream media to excuse the Obama administration’s economic failures. Yesterday I read an article in The NY Times about something unexpected in Obamacare, and one term jumped out at me (emphasis mine): About one-third of employers...

“Deem and Pass” is dead. There will be an up or down vote on the Senate bill in the House. But not until the House passes amendments to the Senate bill before it passes the Senate bill: House leaders have decided to take a separate...

Martha Coakley has hammered Scott Brown relentlessly with the claim that Brown wanted to permit hospitals to deny emergency contraception to rape victims. As Coakley surely knows, that claim is false. I examined the language of Brown’s proposed amendment in a prior post. That amendment...

The meme circulating today is that Republicans made a tactical error by failing to cooperate more with Democrats early on in the health care debate, pushing so-called moderate Democrats like Evan Bayh into the arms of Harry Reid and Barack Obama. That meme is a...

John Hawkins has an interesting post regarding a conversation he had with a Senate staffer on the chances of Obama-Pelosi-Reid-care passing this year (not likely) or in January (50/50): John: But still, it’s looking grim right? Senate Aide X: They are in much worse shape...

Congratulations Senior Citizens. Your self-appointed advocate, AARP, has intervened again in favor of Democratic health care restructuring proposals: As the Senate prepares to vote on a controversial Medicare funding amendment to the $848 billion health care bill, the seniors lobby has weighed in with a...

I so love to say I told you so. On Sunday, after recovering from the intial reaction to the House vote, I cautioned that the Stupak Amendment created an impossible situation for Democrats. While Democrats were still drunk with jubilation over the Great Saturday Night...

Joe Lieberman threw a healthy dose of water on the Pelosi-Reid-Obama health care fire this morning, reiterating that he will join in a Republican filibuster of any Senate health care bill which contains a public option. This is at least the second time in recent...
