To read some of the reviews telling Sarah Palin it’s over as to any hope of winning a general election, you would think she would be down in the polls versus Obama by an enormous margin, particularly if a poll were taken in the days after the Tucson shooting when the...

Ed Koch, former Mayor of New York City, has come to the defense of Sarah Palin regarding her use of the term “blood libel” to describe the malicious and false accusations that Palin’s electoral target map contributed to the Tucson shootings (emphasis mine):

Today the phrase “blood libel” can be used to describe any...

There is a nice bit of revisionist and self-congratulatory history at FrumForum, in a piece titled How Christine O’Donnell Brought Down The Delaware GOP.

I’ll save you the trouble and high blood pressure of reading the article, here’s the story line:

Christine O’Donnell singlehandedly caused Republicans down the line, all the way to...

Imagine a place where legislators who had been thrown out of office hurried to pass legislation they knew would not pass once the new Congress was seated in order to defeat the will of the people as expressed in recent congressional elections.

Such a thing could not happen here, because our lame duck...

This is not the post you probably were expecting from me given my harsh — and as always prescient — criticism of Republicans in the lame duck session.  I was screaming “capitulation!” before screaming “capitulation!” was fashionable.

Notwithstanding the lame duck session, give Mitch McConnell some credit for the war which has been...

The lame duck session has been a pathetic joke on Republicans and conservatives who thought they won the elections in November. 

An illegitimate Democratic House and near filibuster-proof Democratic Senate have run roughshod on most issues, and several Republicans have helped them along.

Unfortunately, we have numerous weak links, some of whom...

I’m not talking about DADT or the military troops.

I’m talking about the political troops who worked their rear ends off to take back the House of Representatives and narrow the gap in the Senate, only to watch Barack Obama and Harry Reid run circles in the closing weeks of the lame...

The Omnibus bill was defeated because of you and millions of others like you who let their voices be heard on the internet, radio airwaves, through emails and phone calls, and most...

Another rush of legislation, taxes, budget, and a host of social agenda items.

We’ve seen this bad movie before.  It resulted in Stimulus, and the Christmas Eve Obamacare vote last year.

And it appears to be happening again.

This lame duck Congress has no political legitimacy to pass anything other than a continuing budget...

The attack dogs are out, and they’re not Democratic.

They are Republicans who “knew Reagan” and play the phony “you’re no Reagan” or “how dare you compare yourself to Reagan” or “how dare you put down Reagan,” or some variation on that theme, against Sarah Palin.

The latest is Ed Rollins (Palin, I knew Reagan....

Charles Krauthammer has lambasted the mainstream (i.e. liberal) media for its obsession with Sarah Palin.

That goes double for liberal entertainers and academics, and triple for the left-blogosphere, which is nuts-in-the-head (that’s a precise medical term in A...

One of the mysteries of political life is why the Democrats insist on playing class warfare even though the tactic has not worked in multiple elections (Virginia, New Jersey, Massachusetts, the November mid-terms) since Obama’s election.

We all have heard of ballots being found in the trunks of cars, and elsewhere during recounts.  In a hotly contested race for the State Senate in New York, Democrats have gone one better, and found two new (and uncounted) voting machines.

Traditionally Republican, the State Senate moved over to the Democrats ...

If Republicans had taken control of the Senate in the mid-term elections, that long-shot win would have been razor thin, probably only by one seat.

The Senate would be controlled by those who were willing to sell their votes to the highest bidder or those with their own agenda.  In the last Democratic...

Frank Rich asks the question “Who Will Stand Up To The Superrich?”

Rich never answers the question, he just complains (mostly about Republicans who self-fund campaigns, and Republican corporate interests, etc.)

But Rich knows the answer.  And there isn’t a Democrat in sight.  The One who might have been the answer to that...
