I really sense that Obama supporters are losing it, completely.  I sense fear in their stupidity.

After Big Bird and the contrived “binder” fauxtroversy, they have a new cause:  Tagg Romney threatened to take a swing at Obama when Obama called Tagg’s father a liar.

Of course, the entire quote makes clear this...

The class clown of the academic internet is beclowning again; must be he’s upset with my investigation into Elizabeth Warren so he attacks the only way he knows how.  Rather than address the merits, he picks a three and one-half year old post of mine and calls me names.  Class act.

We have had an epidemic problem of violence directed at people perceived as insulting Islam stretching back over 30 years.  That violence is part of a greater Islamist and Jihadist struggle against the West, and encompasses attacks on Christians, Jews and other religious minorities throughout the Middle East.

Sometimes the violence does not...

It’s November 7.  Barack Obama has won.  The Republican presidential strategy has failed.  The media is jubilant.  The right-blogosphere is going through a serious introspection.  The left-blogosphere is dancing on our graves and shoving it down our throats.  Four years of fighting the Obama agenda was for nothing.

Oh, I’m sorry.  Let me...

Whether the pick of Paul Ryan for Veep was a good pick or a bad pick or something in between is irrelevant at this point.

Ryan was the pick.

The left-wing writers and bloggers are all over it, portraying the pick as extremist and a cave to the Tea Party and far right,...

We’re making progress, of sorts.  Not everyone jumped in with Brian Ross and ABC News in trying to link Colorado shooter James Holmes to the Tea Party.

One left-wing blogger quickly wrote that he did not suspect a Tea Party connection because, in his view, a real wingnut would have targeted a m...

Hey, you know who is to blame for Elizabeth Warren’s false claim to be Cherokee?

Definitely not Elizabeth Warren if you are a defender of Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts.  No, this is far deeper and vaster than Elizabeth Warren, it goes well into the world of “right wing extremists” according...

I pointed out in a previous Card Game that the race card was being used to defend Elizabeth Warren, Playing the race card in defense of Elizabeth Warren is a vice.  That post revolved around Jehmu Green calling Tucker Carlson a “bow-tying white boy” for questioning Warren’s story.

James O’Keefe is loathed on the left almost on a par with what Andrew Breitbart experienced.  From ACORN to NPR to voter fraud in 2012, O’Keefe and his camera have caused havoc.

Yet when blogger Adam Weinstein of Mother Jones approached O’Keefe this year at Netroots Nation, they had a rather pleasant, non-confrontational conversation (in...

I returned to Netroots Nation today.

At lunch, I went to listen to Elizabeth Warren’s speech and panel discussion. I wanted to ask her a few questions after her panel, which was entitled “2012 and the War on (and for) Women.”

Specifically, I wanted to ask Warren questions about being a Woman of Color....

The post concerns Frank VanderSloot, an Idaho businessman who Greenwald alleges bullies political opponents by threatening frivolous defamation and copyright suits.  I don’t know if VanderSloot is guilty as charged by Greenwald, but I suspect the story is...

The image is from New York Magazine, however, and it’s in support of gay marriage, so the response will be muted, Obama Gay Marriage Evolution Watch: Day 468.

Today is the anniversary of the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of several others, including a federal judge and a young girl, by Jared Loughner.

The victims appropriately will be remembered.

Further investigation revealed that Loughner lived in a non-political paranoid delusional world, and to the extent he ever expressed political leanings, they...
