Virtue, Governance And The State

October 31, 2009
By

Are we even permitted to discuss such a thing as virtue in America any more, let alone be capable of it? Sure, some discuss it. But I suspect much of our political class doesn't. And academics and elitists discuss it only as an exercise, not so much as a search for the...

Sarah Palin: A Time To Unite

October 31, 2009
By

Another Facebook update from Sarah Palin. I don't disagree, though I suspect some cynics would say we need to be careful what we're uniting around. It'll be interesting to see how active Palin is after the election. Certainly she'll be active in promoting her book. How political she makes that...

Fed Insurer Drops Hernia Coverage As HC Bill Released

Come on. You can't expect a bunch of old white guys who sit around and drink at night to suddenly start carrying 20 lbs. around with them everywhere they go without hurting themselves, now can you?

NJ: Corzine May Lose Job Over Highest Property Taxes In US

October 31, 2009
By

The average homeowner in NJ pays $7,000 a year in property taxes. As a former resident, tell me about it. In Northern Jersey that isn't even much of a house, not that it's a castle in the South. It depends. This AP item via Breitbart is not kind to Corzine at...

NJ: Santorum Calls For Daggett To Withdraw

October 31, 2009
By

Diplomatic Rick Santorum is not, so I'm unconvinced he's the guy to lead this charge. While he may not have meant for it to sound that way, it sounds as if he's giving Daggett something of a knock.

Following up on a tweet by Gay Patriot questioning if this would happen, I...

They Don’t Call Him Mittens For Nothing

October 31, 2009
By

The late Dean Barnett (Wow, a year and four days ago Dean passed) – anyway, Dean and I disagreed on somethings, but he was an honest guy. He was a very big Romney guy. He had met him, driven him around a bit, as I recall, but whatever he saw in...

Why Obama Released WH Logs When He Did

October 31, 2009
By

Last night I said Obama needed a distraction for some reason, or the WH logs wouldn't have been released when they were. Everything for a political purpose with this crew. Meant more for his base than the Right, as the headlines boasted of the most transparent administration evah! Holder was invoking the...

Scozzafava Drops Out Of NY – 23

October 31, 2009
By

Geesh, she quit in tears. She did the right thing. I had said I admired her for standing up in front of the Hoffman campaign location and giving her short speech. Nothing she's done has caused me to change that positive view. I've no ill will toward her. She had a long,...

Boehner Talks Health Care

October 31, 2009
By

This report via Breitbart's wire deals with the radio address Boehner is slotted to make today. Palin called it a game changer on her Facebook page yesterday. That tells me...

America: Land Of Milk, Honey And Free Cell Phones

October 31, 2009
By

Just in case any of you qualify, thought I'd pass this handy website along. Always nice to have a cell phone on hand if you get into a jam. Ironic this program sort of assumes you have a serviceable PC. Maybe I should look around to see if we're paying for...

White House Plays Games, Sets Trap With Web Site

October 30, 2009
By

Think Progress is quick to bash the Right for claiming certain names were on the WH visitor's list that were not the people they appear to be. I neither know nor care what was released to the media. But I know for a fact the disclaimer below was nowhere to be...

Good Lord

October 30, 2009
By

So I see this tweet about Miley Cyrus saying Twitter should be banned. Okay, pathetic confession - I've never actually seen the girl before this video, though obviously I know the name. So, I look her up on Wiki, as I knew she was a kid. She's 17?

In between trying to...

Times Union: NRCC Slashed Scozzafava Funding: Dead Heat

October 30, 2009
By

I don't know how Dede Scozzafava ends up in all this. But I don't mind going on record to say I don't begrudge her anything at all. She looks to have been recruited for this slot, then gotten caught up in a maelstrom. She's still a human being. But with the ...

Paging Obama: Sarah Palin Updated Her Facebook Page

October 30, 2009
By

Huh? I thought the White House was targeting Sarah Palin's Facebook page? What is she doing there, speaking truth to power? I thought that was Valerie Jarrett's job?? Man, won't she be ticked.

Pretty amazing when the Minority Leader's come back pitch at the White House address will draw more press because it's...

WH Logs: Terrorists, Basketball, RaceBaiter, Soros And The SEIU

October 30, 2009
By

What else is there to do when you aren't selling access that comes with influence, entertaining Bill Ayers or doing the SEIU's business but shoot basketball with Mikey! He must be one of the most frequent visitors according to the logs. Andy Stern may as well move in, as I also saw...

Palin-Mania: IFPC Sets The Record Straight

The Iowa Family Policy Center has issued a new press release on the latest Sarah Palin non-fiasco: Yeah, Yawnathan Martin at Politico is a Hose Bag. Not that they even mentioned him.

We extended our invitation knowing she would be in the middle of her book tour and the chances of her...

LMAO Well done. More at link.

Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a note on Tom Ammiano's Wall:

Sorry if I offended you, Tom. It was immature and
Unprofessional of me to write you a note with a hidden
Code buried in it. I...
