April 29, 2009, shortly after Arlen Specter announced he was switching parties giving Democrats 60 seats in the Senate (pending the seating of Al Franken), when all appeared lost, I wrote:

What history shows us is that a liberal, blame-America-first Democratic President, urged on by a liberal, blame-America-first Democratic Congress, is a...

The MoveOn.org provocation against Rand Paul, has inspired an anti-Joe Miller CBS news station in Alaska.

What kind of person posts a tweet like this?

The same kind of person responsible for running (and still defending) the Christine O’Donnell “one night stand” story. 

There is a sickness in our media, and Gawker is one of its primary homes.

There is a key difference between Republican and Democratic attacks ads this year. 

As I previously noted, Republican attacks focus mainly on policy, such as Obamacare, stimulus, and national deficits and debt.  That’s not to say that there are not individual ads which may get personal, but the Republican believe they can...

When I saw the headline Meek: I Turned Down Crist Cross, I thought it was a play on words reflecting that Charlie Crist was double-crossing his political opponents.

But no, Charlie Crist actually offered Kendrick Meek Crist’s sister’s cross if Meek would drop out of the Senate race, as reported at the link:

I’m not buying all the phony expressions of outrage from left-bloggers and pundits over the Gawker article about Christine O’Donnell.

From the moment she won the primary, O’Donnell was sexualized by the left with the excuse being O’Donnell’s 1996 video regarding masturbation.  That 14-year old tape has been the focus of jokes and...
