From email. Just received a press release on a new
Marine OCS recruiting campaign and an interesting application of
blogs by the Marine Corps. You can access the blogs here, or at link at he
very end of the release. I'll post the whole thing, since I
haven't found it on...
Is there something in the water in DC today, or is it the heat?
Taylor has a point in claiming he isn't one of the Blue Dogs who is
selling out. But, now ATR, instead of backing down, is ratcheting
it up based upon other previous votes they argue represent
I'm a conservative who votes Republican and no fan of Hillary
Clinton, but this clip via the Post is unbelievable. She's still
the Secretary of State. And this is the kind of thing...
After reading this report of tempers flaring at a recent RNC meeting, I
decided to do some quick research. The spat involves Steele's
hand-picked guy to run the important Rules Committee, Florida
Republican Chair Jim Greer.
That doesn't sit well with some conservatives, who see Greer as
a centrist. Former South Carolina...
A vanity born of a learned arrogance, perhaps? Is that
true of Obama and, if so, will it be his downfall? What's more
timely perhaps is simply that such speculation has begun. But as I
cautioned the other day, the term is still far too young to start
AIM picks up a CJR item and, not surprisingly,
elements mostly aligned with the existing old media business rise
in defense of it with analysis. But none of their analysis
holds, nor speaks to the core issues, which I found myself
pondering just last night. It isn't just how content is...
Hmm. h/t Instapundit for this by Byron York, who is doing some terrific
work for The Examiner. Best hire they've made since I've been
looking in. Read it all for the nuance.
The gist is this. As Sacramento Mayor, Kevin Johnson's problems
were getting in the way of the city receiving stimulus...
Updated: Longest post-war losing streak. This does not
bode well for anyone holding elective office right now.
The U.S. economy contracted an annualized real 1.0
percent in the second quarter of 2009, a substantial improvement
from the previous quarter's decline of 6.4 percent but marking the
longest postwar losing streak, the Commerce...
If it's unfair to judge Obama by our standards, surely
we are able to judge him by his own, I would think?
When I saw the New York Times headline on the heels of
his White House meet and drink, I couldn't help but think back to
his own rhetoric from the...
Well, that headline, and it is a serious one, believe
it or not, is nevertheless guaranteed to fuel my liberal commenters
disdain for, ire and rage at, and dismissal of me. How could I
possibly resist such a delightful opportunity to invite them all to
dance? They being so pretty when...
Well, this isn't good news. Pregnant Mothers are at risk and
they're recommending vaccination. Unfortunately, I'll assume the
lawsuits from some vaccinated mothers for every conceivable birth
defect will likely follow next year.
Swine flu virus has claimed the lives of two Bay Area women who
recently gave birth, adding to the growing...
I continue to be disappointed in the media as a general rule,
though there are some few bright spots out there. But the
transition in Journalism we are seeing is likely to go on for some
The last thing we need is for government to step in and prop up
Sorry, folks. Wasn't ignoring the blog. But had a blog talk radiointerview for an hour, recording to come. Thought it was a good discussion on blogging, as opposed to the news.
Now, back in the swim to find out what's what.
Not to argue the merits of every dollar in spending
here, but when the White House makes a veto threat, it's supposed
to mean something, … to have at least some impact.
But this military spending bill just squeaked by
despite just such a threat, … 400-30. That's like saying,
Man, liberals are wacky. Forget pong. I heard
the Secret Service has been put on notice to be sure to
not let the Cop confiscate Barry's favorite bong. He claims he
can't govern without it, but I think he might want to give a try.
It isn't like things could get...
Name that tune. If you're Obama it's sounding like a
funeral dirge right about now. But it's far from over. The guy gets
to sit there for four years and a lot can happen. He might even buy
a clue as to what it means and...
