After White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was again
forced to explain what VP Biden "meant to say"
today, the WH has decided to issue him a teleprompter.
Only in Biden's case, it will run after he speaks and be turned
toward the camera, so everyone will know what he "meant to...
Tom Maguire looks at whether the Brits used torture during WWII. As
noted below, "The London Cage" was kept classified under the
Official Secrets Act of 1911. At link, it mentions 2006. That could
be one reason for the scant referencing.
I see that Michael Tomasky of the Guardian has...
Interesting, Joe Sestak is popular, as well as the leading fundraiser in terms of potential
Specter primary challengers. Now he says, "It isn't Washington's
decision" as regards Specter running as the Democrat for the
Senate. He also issues a clear warning to Specter at the end of the
short video below.
Gee, how did this happen. I thought this war had been lost?
Looks as though Bush's surge the current POTUS didn't
support was the right idea.
Maj Head, 40, was commanding B Company from 1st Battalion, The
"It's quite staggering," he says, removing his hard helmet and
This tidbit from Specter's statement deserves to be addressed
because he is falsely demonizing his former fellow Republicans.
Specter's leaving the GOP had nothing to do with anything being too
"far to the right." It had to do with his willingness to spend
billions of tax dollars on useless...
Maybe it's just all about winning?
I’m not even sure anyone who attacks Republicans on such grounds
even believes such things (or bothers to give them serious
thought). They just repeat it like parrots...
Glenn Reynolds suggests if anything there's been a
softening on social issues by the GOP, despite what he recently
heard – more at link on the GOP and fiscal
conservatism, as well.
SO I HEARD SOME GUY ON THE RADIO saying that the Republicans
have changed from the Reagan era — now...
h/t Glenn - Jon Henke thinks the Specter switch
presents something of a test for the Democrats.
I disagree in the sense that Obama is both the progressive movement
and the Party establishment. If anything, the progressive movement,
at least as exemplified by the Netroots, followed Obama, they
As a politician, Arlen Specter didn't really enjoy
much success until he rode Reagan's coat-tails to DC. And he might
not be the formidable campaigner some think, though he does have a
solid war chest. Funny how his early electoral history is missing
from his wiki.
The full story of Specter's switch...
Forget that Limbaugh is a politically-incorrect,
meat-eating conservative, or that Mark Levin's book before Liberty and Tyranny was Rescuing Sprite. Conservatives
can't be caught doing a solid for stray animals, I guess.
This is political strategery so bad it makes your head hurt. The key word here is
"represents." And it isn't about...
The Wall Street Journal is spot on with this analysis of NY's 20th Congressional District
race. Having recently lived in NNJ for a decade, even I
realized Tedisco has been a key GOP fixture for years in NY. And
that isn't a good thing. By offering more of the same
old, same old, the Republican...
Amid news that 9/11 witnesses were angered, Instapundit asks:
What were they thinking?
I hate to diss a West Point grad. But if we look at the decision maker, you could draw one
unflattering conclusion. And a look at his full resume might
be even more revealing.
Fire Louis Caldera, White House Terror Plane Plotter!
